Testimonials from our satisfied clients!

Michael Ellner is an exceptional hypnosis practitioner. I had been to several of the top hypnotists and Specialist doctors in New York and, invariably, I felt worse instead of better after time spent with each of them. 

Feeling at the end of my rope as I was experiencing severe chronic pain every day, as a last resort, I reached out to Michael hoping, but never really imagining, that he would have anything different to offer me.  But, to my sheer joy and astonishment, Michael’s coaching methods showed me that I could get my life and health back. From our first conversation/session, I experienced significant improvement in my pain level, my sense of well being, my optimism about the power of self hypnosis and, in general, about the potential for me to make a full and complete recovery. 

Michael's expertise in this field is bar none. His heart is very empathetic. His approach is very sensible, practical, easy to understand, conversational, easy to apply independently and very powerful.  I highly recommend that anyone who feels stuck, in pain, unhappy, tethered to unhappy habits, etc. run to secure the services of Michael Ellner.  He’s the only one you want to work with if you want to get and feel better.”

“I first met Kelley Woods after my doctor referred her to me for pain relief. A couple of years before, I suffered a botched dental procedure and this left me with a condition called trigeminal nerve pain. This pain radiated throughout the entire left side of my face and basically ruined my life. I was put on many different pain drugs without relief and finally went through a nerve ablation which also failed to help. Not only was this a hardship but it took all I could muster to get out of bed in the morning and get my kids off to school after which I just took some more pills and crawled back in.

During our first meeting, Kelley gave me hope that I might recover from this terrible thing and also showed me a way I could feel better. Almost immediately I felt a change, something I had never felt before! One of the things that I know made me feel better was the way she listened to me and didn’t tell me it was all in my head, like I had heard from several doctors and even my family and friends. She recognized that having chronic pain is very frustrating and lonely! Over several months Kelley helped me not only let go of the pain but let go of how it had taken so much away from my life. I have now completely recovered and been able to go back to work. My family recently took a road trip together, something that would have been unthinkable a year ago!

I am so grateful I found Kelley and hope other people in pain have the chance to use hypnosis to get better too.”

"Alan Barsky is a wise soul who uses active listening to determine how to best work with a client. He customized the message exactly to the client and provides clients with a CD/recording after each meeting so you can continue to build on the benefits of each session. I have worked with him on several issues; as I strongly believe in the power of the mind, and the need to access that power at a subconscious level for best results. Currently I have worked with him on weight loss, and found it easier to stick with the plan than with any previous diet. He has also helped my self-confidence and jaw clenching TMJ. High integrity. Great results."

“I decided to try hypnosis in attempt to overcome a fear/phobia I had regarding medical treatment that I developed over ten years ago.  After just one session with Rick Paddock, I took a HUGE step and confronted the situation which provoked my phobia in the first place.  It was an enormous relief to "conquer"  or at least significantly improve the management of my fear and anxiety after just one session!  While I knew my phobia was stupid, irrational, and insignificant, Rick never made me feel that way.   He knew the issue was important to me, and did his best to help me overcome my fears.  He is very professional and made me feel comfortable and confident.  I will continue to use hypnosis to help manage other aspects of my life. Rick was the only way I could have done this, and I am very grateful to have found Milwaukee Hypnosis and Wellness Center!”

Testimonial for Adrian Madril:

"I have to tell you how much I have appreciated the self-relaxation exercises you taught me! On January 2, I had the first nuclear stress test since the one in August, 2011, when my chest pains prompted your wife to send me (in an ambulance) to the Kansas Heart Hospital. Cardiologists there removed a blood clot from my heart and emphasized how fortunate I was to have caught it "in time." On January 2, I was a nervous wreck, so afraid there would be something else really terrible--another emergency ambulance ride! As I lay on the table, I used every one of the visualizations you taught me so I could be still on that skinny table! I was glad no one could read my mind--to see the purple balloon in the meadow, the canoe floating down the river, the glass numbers shrinking and disappearing on the horizon! I must have counted a thousand times that morning: "Breathe in, 1, 2, 3, 4. Hold, 1, 2, 3, 4. Breathe out, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8." I swear that's how I made it through the day! Overall, your teachings have improved my life in ways I don't even know yet! Thank you!" ~ P.M.
