The Hypnotic Gastric band is a psychological procedure that can help to convince the subconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted around your stomach to help you lose weight. During physical gastric band surgery a silicone band is fitted around the upper part of the stomach. This limits the amount of food you can eat. As it is a surgical procedure there is always potential risk and complications involved.
The Hypno-Gastric band is a non invasive alternative as it is a virtual gastric band and therefore doesn’t require physical surgery. The process is completely safe. The aim is to make your subconscious mind believe that you’ve had a surgery and the size of your stomach is reduced so you physically can’t eat that much any more.
The Hypno-Gastric Band procedure and how it works.
The program I use consists of four sessions and two take away recordings to reinforce the therapy. The first three sessions will last up to 90 minutes and are held on a weekly basis. The last session is a follow up session, which lasts 50 minutes and takes place 4 weeks after the third session.
During this program, apart from performing the actual Hypno-Gastric Band ‘surgery’, we create new behaviours that will support your lifestyle and healthy food choices, as well as revisit long-forgotten experiences surrounding food that may be subconsciously affecting you. The aim is to identify the root cause of your emotional eating.
The actions during a virtual gastric band procedure are designed to suggest to your subconscious mind that you have had physical surgery. It is possible through a deep state of relaxation, which sends you into hypnosis. Your conscious critical mind is bypassed and your subconscious is more open to new suggestions that are beneficial to you.
The mind is very powerful and what you believe, you can achieve!
It is important that during the program you listen to the recordings you will receive from me. They will help you to commit and maintain your change in lifestyle.
During every step of the program I will be there to support you and explain what happens at every stage.
To enhance the experience I trigger various senses through sound and smell, with the intention that your subconscious will have an even stronger belief that what is being said is really happening to you.
In some cases it might be useful to continue hypnotherapy sessions after the procedure as part of your weight loss program as it might be beneficial for your general wellbeing to address any underlying issues that may be present.
The whole procedure is a pleasant, relaxing experience and after every session you will feel calm.
Hypnotherapy is a very effective technique when it comes to changing habits and behaviours, dealing with difficult emotions and resolving past issues. The success is largely up to you and your commitment. If you believe in the process and trust your therapist, you are more likely to achieve good results. The process itself is quite simple and all you need to do is to follow my instructions during our hypnotherapy sessions, engage and listen to your recordings. Being comfortable and trusting during our hypnotherapy sessions is essential. It’s good practice to research your therapist and arrange a phone consultation to find out more before you commit.
