Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy process explained, and how it can help you.

What is Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?

An amazing safe virtual (imaginary) Weight Loss programme using hypnotherapy.

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy sessions will consist of a combination of progressive relaxation, visual imagery, aural reinforcement and positive suggestions to help clients lose weight by convincing their minds that their stomachs are full after a smaller amount of food.

This may produce similar weight loss results to an actual surgical Gastric Band procedure.

It helps you to reconnect with your body's hunger signals and increase your metabolism.

How does a Gastric Band Work?

A Gastric band is a small silicone band with an inflatable ring on the inside. It is fitted like a collar around the top of your stomach to create a small pouch about a tenth of the size of your whole stomach.

When that pouch fills up with food you feel full and you simply can't eat any more. Exactly the same hormonal and nervous signals are triggered as when your whole stomach was available, so you feel full in exactly the same way.

The process encourages you to eat when you are hungry, and to stop eating when you are full.

How is the Surgical Gastric Band Fitted?

In the real surgical world a Gastric Band Procedure is conducted with laparoscopic surgery under general anaesthetic. The band is fitted securely around the top portion of the stomach. After a few weeks it is adjusted for fit by injecting a saline (salt) solution into the soft ring inside the band.

How is the Hypnotherapy Gastric Band Fitted?

The Hypnotherapy technique will install the band using an imaginary surgical procedure - with the aid of familiar surgical sounds, and suggestions which will re-calibrate your fullness threshold. At the completion of the session you will feel completely satisfied and full after eating meals with very small portions.

What will you experience during Gastric Band Hypnotherapy?

It is a very relaxing and comfortable process as you are guided using imagery and sound effects through a visit to the imaginary specialist Gastric Band clinic. The Gastric Band is fitted during an imaginary procedure, there is no discomfort and the procedure goes perfectly. Positive suggestions to help with weight loss are given throughout and become more and more a reality for you. You relax, going deeper and deeper, where all the positive suggestions establish themselves in the deepest part of your mind.

On completion of the session the feeling of fullness when eating should happen quicker and give a clearer signal too. It may even become somewhat uncomfortable to try to eat too much. So the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Procedure will help you to hear and respond to the signals of your body much more clearly.
