Hypnotic Gastric Band

Can You Really Think Yourself Slim With A Hypnotic Gastric Band?

Sep 13, 2018

There’s been a lot in the media recently about the Hypnotic Gastric Band or also known as The Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis. I get asked a lot about it so thought I’d give a Virtual Gastric Band 101 on what it is, but more importantly what it’s not.

The Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis – It is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain the person to be satisfied with smaller portions of food. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within themselves to make changes to their lives. Many people of all shapes and sizes find long term solutions to their weight problems with Virtual Gastric Band therapy.

Secondly, It’s not a magic wand – you can’t walk in and see me and want to leave 20kg lighter. The hypnosis can give you the sensation of feeling fuller for longer and give you the satisfaction of smaller portions of food. It can also help to combat cravings. But it still requires some conscious effort on your part. I’ve seen some amazing weight loss and the people that do well are the ones that come with the commitment, determination and motivation to make a permanent change in their lives.

It’s also not a diet – We all know that diets don’t work, they’re not sustainable. All they do is make you think about food; the one thing that you don’t want to think about:

  • Am I on a red day or green day, how many points can I have, how many calories is this?

Conscious self-denial of something can often increase the desire for that very thing, and eating a little less than we need – but eating anything we want – can actually lead to weight loss. Cutting out favourite foods completely is a bad idea, but cutting down on those foods is achievable and sustainable.

The Virtual Gastric Band enables you to form new habits that you can maintain; there is no deprivation therefore you are liberated from having to think about food all the time and just listen to what your body is telling you.

It’s not just a weight loss program – The Virtual Gastric Band helps to change your relationship with food taking in to account your weak points, triggers and habits. It’s 4 sessions as nothing is a quick fix but at the end of the 4 weeks it’s designed to bring about a permanent change in your eating behaviour.

It can empower you – By helping you to take back control of food, you will feel more empowered in other areas of your life. You will gain confidence in yourself as a person to achieve other goals.

Best of all, a Hypnotic Gastric Band is Safe

With a Hypnotic Gastric Band, there are no operations, no lengthy hospital stays, expensive medical bills or risky surgeries and you’ll get a great sense of accomplishment that you have done this all yourself.
