Reduce Stress and Resolve Emotional Issues

"I was having an incredibly difficult time getting over the end of an important relationship. Traditional therapy had given me some new insights that proved helpful, but there were lingering, persistent feelings of sadness and loss that I just could not get past. I told Dr. Wang that I was so used to thinking about it, that even when I wanted and tried to think of other things, my mind would slip back, like wheels into ruts in a road. I wanted to just be “hypnotized” into not thinking about it anymore!

Therapy with Dr. Wang is not quite like that, though. It is a process, a dialog with myself, guided by her. She teaches a simple and very effective way to identify and respect what you are feeling, and let those feelings pass through and out of you. The great thing is that, once you learn the technique, it is available to you any time, so it’s not like you have to have weekly appointments to get the benefit. I went for three visits total.

I use the technique often. Recently, I found myself feeling upset. Typically, I would look back at my lost relationship as the default reason for feeling upset. But by using the technique, I realized I wasn’t upset about that at all; I was upset about something at work! I used the technique again a few days ago when I WAS feeling sad about the lost relationship. It helped me give a voice to that sadness, and I was able to let it go.

I am very glad that a web search on "hypnosis" led me to Dr. Wang.

"I'm writing to thank you for helping my daughter becoming much more calm and in control of her life. She is handling stressful situations with much more ease now. And everyone in the family is benefiting from her new-found 'coolness'. I'm thrilled to see the positive changes happening in her since she started practicing the methods she learned working with you."

"Simple, Effective and Life Changing Experience! Dr. Wang introduced me to the process of working with my body/subconscious mind about 2 months ago. Ever since then, day by day I’ve been amazed by the magic happening to me in all aspects of my life –

My eyes - I’ve been nearsighted for more than 10 years and my eye muscles had always been very tense. The next morning after my private session with Dr. Wang, my eyes felt like they went through a long journey and just recovered. My eyes have been so much more relaxed since that day; I have been living happily without glasses most of the time (other than driving). My world becomes so much more colorful and fun since my eyes and my heart open to and embrace the beauty of the world around me now :)

My sleep – the first recognition Dr. Wang provided is the best sleeping pill! Whenever I repeated it, I went to sleep like a baby, even after waking up in the middle of the night!

My happiness –When things don’t go right (or my way), in stead of getting frustrated, I’m more flexible and creative after seeing Dr. Wang and practicing. Quite often things work out very well and I get to make new friends, find a shortcut…and have more fun.

The most unbelievable thing is it almost feels effortless (except making an effort to go see Dr. Wang, and sparing a few minutes a day), once I open that door, wonderful things are flowing into my life day and night!

I felt the first time in my life that my feet have touched the ground. I'm starting to smell the flowers now. I'm much more at ease with myself and I can finally feel the love and sunshine around me.

"I had suffered pain physically and mentally for many years. I started having back pain after a miscarriage in 1998. In 2001 after a car accident I started having neck pain. I went to different type of therapies but could not get rid of them. Also, I had been in emotional turmoil very often. I felt sick and unhappy.

I had my first child prematurally with an unnecessary c-section. When I was pregnant with my second, I took your HypnoBirthing class. The hypnosis helped me to calm down, to analyze my concerns/worries during the pregnancy objectively and to make better choices during pregnancy and birth. A c-section was ordered because my water leaked and my cervix was not ready at all. After a hypnosis fear release session with you, my doctor was so surprised to see that my supposedly tight cervix opened overnight and allowed me to deliver the baby naturally. With the help of HypnoBirthing, I not only successfully carried my baby to full term, but also I was much more calm and happy, and much less in emotional turmoil.

Being encouraged by the changes hypnobirthing brought to me, and also realizing there were more emotional issues at play, I started seeing you for private hypnosis session. Working with you during the hypnosis sessions, I was able to release the painful emotions that had built up since childhood. I become more and more in peace with myself. I am now gaining self confident and becoming much more compassionate and forgiving with myself and others. The chronicle back pain had gone away.

I felt the first time in my life that my feet have touched the ground. I'm starting to smell the flowers now. I'm much more at ease with myself and I can finally feel the love and sunshine around me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! For giving me my life back! For helping me seeing life with complete new perspectives! AND for helping my baby having a calm and gentle start in life!

Thank you again for being a part of this dream for us from start to finish

"I hope many other women get the chance to leave behind the burden and the fear of feeling unable to fulfill the dream of motherhood. Your treatment helped me to listen to my inner voice that had been telling me all along that I could achieve what I was looking for by myself without the need of any (IVF) fertility treatment, it empowered me to believe in myself and gave me the tools that I needed to enjoy a happy and wonderful pregnancy. Thank you again for being a part of this dream for us from start to finish.

The three of us will be leaving to my home country in December but I will always keep your memory close to us and I will certainly let Joaquin know of a special person that helped me to change my life forever.

-- Ariel, Germantown, Maryland

I hope you are doing great and the cold winter is not giving you a hard time. I am certainly having less trouble with cold weather ever since you helped me overcome that awful feeling that I related to being cold and even though, I still do not like cold temperatures, I am certainly not suffering that much anymore.

I wanted to share excelent news with you since you helped me so much. I found last Thursday that I am pregnant!!!!!!! I could not believe it since after they cancelled the treatment at the end of September, my body had been behaving in a very strange way and I had no clue about how long my cycle would be or when would ovulation occur,etc. Even the doctors were having a hard time to figure out when would they be able to start a new cycle. I believe my body was just trying to recover by itself and I helped it a little bit with a couple of accupuncture sessions. It is a wonderful surprise for us and we are very happy. I have to go to Shady Grove Fertility tomorrow, Wednesday and Friday for a series of blood tests to make sure that the "beta" levels are rising normally, but I am certain that this is a gift from Mother Nature to me that has come against all odds and everything will be just fine. I want to pass the 6th week mark that was so devastating to me last time but I am trying very hard to trust my body and let it do what it knows to do. I visit my baby every day in the womb and see the little bundle perfectly secured in its seat. This is my Christmas Miracle and I can't wait to share it with my family when they come for Christmas!!!!!

Pain Management and Pre-term Labor

"I want to thank you again for the treatment on Tuesday. There are no words that can describe what it was like to suddenly not be in pain after years and years of back pain! THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

-- Nicole A., Potomac, MD

I was hoping that maybe I would be able to sit for 5 mins at a time. Now I sit and walk like a normal person again!

"I called Emily Wang out of desperation. I had suffered severe back pain for 3 months since giving birth. I went to see a physician, a back specialist, an accupuncturist, a massage therapist, and a physical therapist. Some of the treatments helped some what for a while, but then the pain came back. I was so miserable. I couldn't sit or stand still for longer than a minute. All day long I had to either keep pacing around or laying down. A very good friend of mine came to visit me and we hadn't seen each other in 10 years. While my family was having dinner with him, I couldn't join them! Because I couldn't sit still long enough to have dinner at the table. I was going back to work in two weeks, and I was hoping that with hypnosis maybe I would be able to sit for 5 mins at a time.

After getting my desperate phone call, Dr. Wang offered to make a house call since I hadn't been able to drive because of the pain. After a two and half hours of hypnosis session, I was able to sit for 20 mins! And now a couple of months have gone by, and I'm so happy and so grateful to report that I sit and walk like a normal person again! Thank you!!!

--Dee Adams, Germantown, MD

"I was so surprised to realize that my eyesight had improved after practicing 7th path! Initially I came to your class to learn how to communicate my thoughts and feelings more effectively. I'm overjoyed to receive this bonus! In the beginning I thought it was only temporary. And I'm so happy to see that my better vision is here to stay!"

--M.W., Bethesda, MD

You don't know how much you have changed my life!

"Before coming to you, I had been having preterm labor for 6 weeks and was put on FULL bedrest. We had been to the hospital 3 times already. Every 2 weeks we would end up in the hospital, be given drugs and sent home for full bedrest. And after seeing you the very first time, I was fine! Never went back to the hospital again, until the day I had my baby full term, 1.5 month later. You don't know how much you have changed my life!"

"For many years, I can only sleep in a separate room by myself because I get up very often at night and my sleep gets easily disturbed by any noise or movement. After taking your self hypnosis class, I slept straight from 9 to 6 for the first time in years!! I am SOOO excited. I can finally sleep in the same room with my husband. Thank you!!!"

Remove Fear and Break Life-Long Habits (Nail-Biting, Eating, etc.)

"Since I have come to Dr. Wang I have felt a new sense of acceptance within myself. I was never able to try foods I didn't feel as though I would enjoy them for fear of not liking them and others judging me. With Dr. Wang's help I now know and feel comfortable with myself to the point of being able to try something and not worrrying what others think but more how it makes me feel. After only 1 session I tried foods I never would be willing to try in over 20 years and it is because of Dr. Wang telling me it is okay to feel the way I do.

Thank you!

--Brian I, Rockville, Maryland

"After biting my nails for 50 years, I'm cured. I feel great. I feel so much better about myself. The self work guide you gave me is very helpful. I keep it next to the couch. When I feel the urge to overeat, or bite my nails, I recognize my feelings and work with them to resolve it. My nails are growing back. They look beautiful! My self-esteem has improved because I feel more in control of my feelings and behaviors. Thank you!"

Hypnosis and Performance (Sports, Test Taking, Public Speaking) Anxiety

"I now know how to relax and calm myself down before a basketball game. Before I would feel very tense and scared. I have learned how to accept those feelings and let them go, so that I can play to the best of my ability. :) Thank you!"

--Christina Beatty, Bethesda, Maryland

"I came into the session with the hope and belief that this is going to work and change my life for the better. I guess that belief made me more receptive to the treatment. After my first session, my sleeping at night has become deeper and very restful. I began to feel completely at ease. I became gradually more comfortable in my interactions with complete strangers. (I am in a customer-facing profession and such constant interactions were getting nerve-wracking. This was the problem I had needed to fix.) I was pleasantly surprised to see that as my approach and demeanour changed, I was beginning to get more positive responses from the people I interacted with. I am thankful to Dr. Wang for her patience and guidance. I am practicing what she taught me at home and I feel great. My thoughts are more positive now. I appreciate all the help that Dr. Wang extended to me!"

Hypnosis and Stop Smoking

After almost 30 years of smoking a pack and a half a day I am finally free!

"When I first read the testimonials I was very skeptical, I have been trying to quit smoking for years and have tried so many ways and methods, including hypnosis itself where the hypnotist put me in a room and talked to me through headphones telling me how I would no longer smoke. Needless to say that only lasted a week.  Never-the-less, because I had made up my mind I was going to quit smoking, even if I didn't really want to, I decided to see Dr. Wang and give her a chance, the way I saw it, I had nothing but a few dollars in a little time to lose if it didn't work and everything to gain if it did.

Dr. Wang, to my amazement, worked with me One on One and helped me release so many of the misbeliefs I had accumulated during the years in releation to my perceived self.  She "gave me permission" to feel the pain and anger I've kept in me for almost fourty years.  She felt those feelings with me, after our sessions I could see that she was as drained as I was.  Interesting enough, even though the smoking itself was never addressed,  I can say that after almost 30years of smoking a pack and a half a day I am finally free!

One night while smoking a cigarrette I realized that I didn't need to do that anymore.  It was as if I had been given permission to be free of it; I have been empowered.  She guided me to change the perception of myself and the situations that are no longer real, but that in some way my mind considered them as real as they once were.  I walked in a scared little girl and on my fourth and last session, I walked out a confident grown woman, smoke free and with a new purpose for my life.  Thank you Dr. Wang, I highly recommend you to anyone who reads this. 

By the way, don't be fool by her kind and quiet nature, she is quite avid at helping aching souls and unlike many other therapists I've gone to before, she really does care.  She never tells you what to do and doesn't just sit there, she teaches you how to help yourself. She reminds me of the old saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a life time."  But, Dr. Wang goes above and beyond; she not only gives you the fish, she ALSO teaches you HOW to fish.  All the best.

Hypnosis and Acupuncture for Weight Loss

"Originally, I came to see you, because I was looking for a 'magic cure' to end my love/hate relationship with eating and my weight. I wanted to halt my ever increasing weight gain, lose weight and keep it off! ....I was skeptical about hypnosis.... ...I have tried many, many ways of losing weight over the years.

You and your program are wonderful. My entire mind set feels changed, not only about food, but about myself and my feelings in general.

I have been losing weight, surprisingly easily and comfortably.... What an incredible journey you have guided me through.

I am eternally grateful, maybe I did find the 'magic' I was looking for, after all.
