What is Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?

Virtual Gastric Band therapy is a safe non-surgical long-term solution to weight loss. This system involves using hypnotherapy to convince your mind that you’ve had the surgery, thereby experiencing the same results as the surgery would. The medical treatment and the hypnotherapy can be done quickly and privately and without the need to wait on hospital waiting lists.

This therapy was pioneered by Sheila Granger a clinical hypnotherapist from Yorkshire in the UK, the system was originally developed to help her client’s achieve significant weight loss. Kathy was trained in this therapy by Sheila Granger a few years back when she visited Australia.

Virtual Gastric Banding makes clients think differently about the food and portion sizes that they eat. It takes client’s minds to different places when they are offered tempting food that they like.

Kathy records the sessions with clients and provides clients with a cd of the session so they can listen daily until the next cd arrives.
Part of the process is doing exercise every day. Kathy can help clients with the type of exercise that suits them best.

Not only does she do that but also shows clients how to do much less exercise than they ever imagined they would need to do to lose weight.

Why Choose Virtual Gastric Banding?

The most important thing about the virtual gastric band in comparison to the actual gastric band is that the virtual version deals with the issues in a person’s mind and their relationship with food.

Having a foreign body inside your stomach simply does not deal with psychological factors.

So if you have had previous problems keeping the weight off or you have sabotage issues when losing weight, why not give Kathy a call and she how she can assist you with your weight loss.

The Benefits

What if you could have all the benefits of the Gastric Band and also address the emotional eating, cravings and habits at the same time? The journey involves you feeling better about yourself and who you are. Imagine how that will impact on your relationships with others, your work/career and your direction in life.

Just imagine having the benefits of a Gastric Band operation without having to go under the knife, or experiencing the emotional and physical pain, emotional drain and scaring that is part and parcel of any normal surgery. Also Gastric Band surgery can cost you thousands of dollars.

However, Gastric Band Surgery is not for everyone and as studies are now showing, the surgery has its drawbacks and is not always successful. Some people who have had the Gastric Band fitted have worked out ways to get around the band restrictions and still put on weight.

How Does it Work?

Over a series of sessions we take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestions, guided visualisation and hypnotic techniques you will believe and feel as though you have actually undergone bariatric surgery (gastric bypass) in the physical world, but of course without any of the discomfort and health risks of obesity weight loss surgery.

Your mind will be convinced you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will believe your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight. The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight – and stay there!

Using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we will create a state of mind where you will you will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band system is a long term solution to your weight problems.

The Procedure

The virtual gastric band is applied under hypnotherapy over 4 weekly sessions. It carries zero risk and there is no invasive surgery.

The subconscious believes the stomach is smaller and the mind doesn’t allow a person to over-eat.

There is no diet, just simple rules to reduce portion sizes and motivation to exercise. You are provided with a supporting hypnotherapy CD to listen to each day. At completion of the 4th session you are given a personalised CD that is yours to keep.
