Hypno Gastric Band

Most of us have heard about the ‘virtual gastric band weight loss system’, and have read stories about the amazing success people have had or perhaps you may know someone who has had the treatment. If you are considering a virtual gastric band,  below are some of the answers to the questions you might have. 

Does it work and what happens during a typical session?

The Hypno-Gastric Band Weigh Less 4 Life System – is an extremely clever and revolutionary system, whereby the client receives a course of relaxing hypnotherapy sessions, which in turn helps to create a renewed belief system whereby you choose to believe you have had a gastric band fitted, in order to reduce your stomach’s capacity for the volume of food you once ate.

This means you will feel fuller after eating much smaller portions of food, and so you will begin to enjoy the long-term health benefits, which will help you to lose weight. Gastric band surgery itself is a complex procedure in which a band is fitted around the stomach to make it smaller – so reducing the amount of food the stomach can cope with.

The virtual gastric band is designed for people who desperately want to lose weight but don't want to go down the surgical route… and so it mimics the feeling you get after having the surgical procedure (but without the pain and discomfort)  and has all the beneficial results, but at a fraction of the cost!. This is viewed as a ‘win win’ situation for many people, and of course, you have the added luxury of enjoying a relaxing, non-invasive stress-free weight loss treatment with a high chance of success!

What exactly happens when you go for a Hypno-Band consultation?

First of all your eating habits, your lifestyle, your history and attitude to food will be assessed. This isn’t about judging or pointing fingers. It’s about understanding what thought processes drive you towards overeating. You will then be introduced to hypnosis, what to expect from the session, how it works, and what you can do to benefit yourself from now on. You sit back, gently focus your mind on your therapists voice, and relax while your therapist talks to you. It really is as simple as that!

At the end of your session, you will be given further advice, as well as the mental tools to carry on with your weight lose journey.  This in turn will reinforce the effectiveness of your treatment. It is important that you listen to what you are told after your session to ensure your treatment is a success.

Hypno-Band comprises a mix of cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnotherapy techniques that re-program your mind to respond differently in everyday situations. You will soon discover that you are able to eat less and feel satisfied.

How much does it cost?

The cost of Hypno-Band treatment can vary, but when compared to gastric band surgery, which can cost thousands of pounds, it is enormously cheaper. It is more cost-effective than many treatments – even the cost of a slimming club soon adds up. The other factor is that some people may need more sessions than others.

For this reason, your therapist will be the best person to contact and discuss what is right for you.

Is the treatment guaranteed?

As the saying goes…’Nothing in life is 100% guaranteed’ and as with any other medical or weight-loss treatment, there is no complete guarantee. However, Hypno-Band has an extremely high success rate with long-term results. The main key to successful treatment is you. If you are totally committed to losing weight then Hypno-Band should work well for you.

Is it safe?

Hypno-Band is completely safe. It does not involve any invasive surgery or pain, and is a relaxing, pleasurable treatment with no side effects, other than the weight loss you want to achieve.

Is Hypno-Band right for me?

If you are overweight and committed to losing weight then you are a suitable candidate for Hypno-Band. The only exceptions being if you are on medication, or your weight is a physiological issue, in which case clinical hypnotherapy would be the first avenue to explore prior to the Hypno-Band application.

When can I start my treatment?

First of all, it is always wise to research hypnotherapists, in your area. Do a little homework; be confident in your choice. Make sure the hypnotherapist is properly trained, a member of a professional body, or find out what they specialise in, do they have a clinic, how long they have been in business etc….

If you're still unsure, just ask to meet them face to face for a consultation.
