Virtual Gastric Band using Hypnotherapy

A safer alternative to surgery

Control your food intake with Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

What is a Virtual Gastric Band?

With the use of suggestions in hypnosis it is possible to convince your sub-conscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted. This is called a virtual gastric band and your body responds as if one has been fitted and gives you a feeling of satiety after eating less than you normally would. This is a much safer option and costs a lot less than the actual operation.

Exploring the emotional and psychological triggers of weight gain

Hypnotherapy has been found to be very effective with clients who wish to lose a significant amount of weight.  As with all hypnotherapy there needs to be a commitment on your behalf, however one of the key benefits of hypnotherapy is that it helps to address emotional and psychological issues that may be connected to weight gain and unhealthy eating. This means that the hypnotic suggestions are received more effectively and imbedded in the unconscious mind more fully, making it more likely that you will be able to maintain a healthy weight for far longer.

The emotional eating issues are addressed within the Hypnotherapy sessions and include the use of positive suggestions using CBT and NLP techniques. Insight orientated hypnotherapy is used to explore triggers, old habits and psychological patterns. EFT and the use of CDs may also be included as part of the treatment.

What else is included in the Hypnotherapy Sessions?

Results are usually achieved over 5 or 6 sessions from the initial virtual consultation through to discussion on having a virtual gastric band; to diet changes; to virtual hospital operation and virtual aftercare.   The positive messages we work on are:

Communication between brain and stomach

Restricts eating too much

Feel fuller more quickly

Signal that you are full is clearer

Need to eat more slowly

More likely to make positive changes in eating habits.

You eat smaller portions of food.

You will find that not only do you want to eat less, but you are likely to eat in a more healthy way and feel more fulfilled physically and emotionally.
