Okay, first of all there is something you need to know about Michele. Aside from her level of education she possesses a deeply innate ability to understand and empathize with one's need. My hypnosis experiences with Michele have always been validating and calming. My most recent appointment with Michele was nothing less than magical! I asked her if she could, in some way incorporate the angelic realm into my session. She accomplished it without batting an eye! The visions I had during the session were verbally validated by Michele at the end of the session, verbatim. Michele channeled my visions and incorporated my angelic experiences into the hypnosis. It was so amazing. I went away from that particular experience with a renewed sense of spiritual excitement and a calming within my mind, body, and spirit. If you are willing to be completely open to whatever your hypnosis experience brings you and accept that experience as a life altering instrument of self empowerment, then you can expect to be healed. It may happen immediately or gradually. Either way, know that with Michele you are being treated with honor, respect, and love. Be patient with yourself. I was, and my experience with Michele was positively beautiful!

"I have attended two hypnotherapy sessions with Andrew. Although I was unsure about the process before I started I am extremely glad that I did. He has already helped me with both pain management and psychological issues. During the whole process he was very open and informative answering any questions and even allowed my wife and best friend to view the therapy session, after asking me if I was ok with it. I had plantar fasciitis in both feet for over two years. Due to the nature of my work I would just keep re aggravating the injury and it would never be allowed to heal. I tried many remedies including multiple steroid injections with my doctor to no avail. I had no quality of life as the pain was a 7 or 8 out of 10 every day from the time I woke up to the time I went to sleep. After the first hypnosis session, my pain was gone. Within two days of receiving hypnotherapy I had aggravated my feet with physical activity, and I was only at a 1 or 2 on the pain scale, and it went back down once I stopped aggravating them. I was so thrilled with the results that on the second visit we moved straight into issues stemming from long term psychological abuse at the hands of my father and ex-wife. My wife and my closest friends have commented already noticing the profound difference. I would recommend anyone to let Andrew help you in the same way that he helped me." Ryan

Bridegnosis, founder - Laura Palmer has a special gift for the work that she does. Not only is she an excellent listener, but she also knows exactly how to tackle any challenge you may be facing. I recently suffered a slipped disk in my back and the only remedy that the doctors could offer was to lose weight. Growing up in large family we were taught to "clean our plates" or go without dinner at each meal and that philosophy/belief stayed with me into adulthood so when a plate of food was in front of me, I had a subconscious obligation to finish everything on my plate which certainly didn't help me lose weight. In sharing this with Laura, she identified the underlying limiting beliefs that were tied to this experience I had a child and my adult behavior and using talk therapy, hypnosis, and a personalized audio download to break this pattern. Now when I have food in front of me I am simply able to stop eating when I am full rather than feel that I must finish everything. I have no feelings (i.e.guilt, consequences) toward the food or the plate but rather can listen to my body as to whether or not I feel full. Losing weight is a slow process and breaking some of these self-defeating behaviors is a great step in the right direction. Laura is truly special and you won't be disappointed - plus you can always go back and listen to your download at any time. She speaks directly to your subconscious and reconnects it with the present you for your best self. Whether your issue is weight-related, stress-related or that every popular issue of not having enough time in the day - she can help you work through all of them in a painless and effective process.

I have been going to the Washington DC Hypnosis Center for a few months for better control of chronic pain and the stress and anxiety of having to deal with a severe chronic autoimmune disorder. Irit is very talented and professional in her work to unravel all of my complicated issues. She has been incredibly helpful in teaching me to reframe my issues and concerns for more positive outcomes. I highly recommend a visit to the Center – you will find it life-changing!

Maryland Hypnosis is amazing. I went there with some initial skepticism, but Brian explained everything to me. Once I understood the process and how hypnosis works, I felt much more at ease. I went there for weight loss and lost 40 pounds in just a couple of months. I didn't diet, I just had no more desire to eat as much as I used to.


We absolutely love helping every day, ordinary people with their every day ordinary problems. We also love teaching others about the good things hypnosis does for people!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a wellness technique that works by promoting positive behavioral or cognitive changes. During successful hypnosis, the client should be eased into a state of deep relaxation in which the conscious mind takes a back seat and the subconscious mind becomes more active. The client is often able to let go of critical thoughts and become receptive to the therapist’s suggestions. In this state of hypnosis, motivating suggestions can bypass your usual mental resistance and internal defense mechanisms. For example, even if you want to quit overeating cupcakes, you may have some level of resistance that your rational mind can’t overcome. During hypnosis, the positive suggestions made by the hypnotherapist can bypass your usual blocks, helping you to achieve the formerly unachievable: stopping overeating, quitting smoking, mastering public speaking, or losing your fear of heights. The goal of hypnosis is to strengthen and empower the client’s motivation, commitment and focus. Consider working with someone who is not just trained in hypnosis but also is a licensed therapist or psychotherapist who can bring their academic background into your session.

What can hypnosis help you with?

According to many sources including the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine and a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hypnosis is scientifically proven to help relieve both mental challenges and physical pains. Hypnosis can alleviate stress and reduce pain after surgeries, has been shown to relieve anxiety in children in the emergency room, and can be useful for managing pain associated with everything from arthritis to migraines. Hypnosis is non-invasive and gives you a way to control pain or discomfort that might otherwise seem out of your hands. Hypnosis shouldn’t be used as a substitute for medical care, but may be an excellent complementary tool that is best provided by a trained therapist or licensed medical provider. The University of Maryland Medical Center shares many conditions for which hypnosis can be useful:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Tension headaches
  • Alopecia areata
  • Asthma
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
  • Addictions
  • Bedwetting
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Labor and delivery
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis and eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Stress
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Cancer-related pain
  • Weight loss
  • Eating disorders
  • Warts
  • Indigestion (dyspepsia)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Smoking cessation

How is hypnosis used in therapy?

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help clients overcome challenging issues such as anxiety, phobias, pain management, hot flashes and more. Hypnosis is also a way to help let go of addictions like smoking, overeating and gambling. In and of itself, hypnosis is not a therapy, but it can be used in conjunction with therapy to empower and encourage the person receiving it to make positive change. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis and will benefit more from hypnotherapy than others.

According to Dr. Clifford N. Lazarus, speaking for Psychology Today, hypnosis is a “genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice … hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. While under hypnosis (i.e., in a hypnotic trance), it seems many people are much more open to helpful suggestions than they usually are.” The suggestions made in a therapeutic setting get deep into a person’s brain, beyond their conscious thinking, leading to behavior change and the ability to overcome challenges that might otherwise seem insurmountable.

What is the effectiveness of hypnosis?

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recognizes the healing power of hypnosis and its proven effectiveness for anxiety, pain control, smoking cessation, headaches and more. Hypnosis may be safe and complementary way to augment medical attention you are receiving for a chronic illness or pain, or a way to resolve an addiction or phobia that you are otherwise unable to control. Hypnosis does not work on every person. When scientists began studying hypnosis in earnest, a report published by Stanford University titled “The Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale” demonstrated that different brains respond to hypnosis in varying degrees, and a very few do not respond at all. Working with a trained psychologist, you’ll soon determine whether you are a good candidate for the healing benefits of hypnotherapy.

During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist will bring you into a state of deep relaxation in which the critical, conscious part of your brain recedes and the subconscious mind becomes alert and focused. The therapist will make suggestions, based on your intended goals, that will take root in your subconscious mind. These suggestions should affect your thinking in a positive way and empower you to make change.
