Gastric Band hypnosis or gastric band hypnotherapy is delivered by using carefully worded hypnotic suggestion to help your mind use its own power of imagination to convince yourself that you have been through the surgical procedure of having a gastric band fitted.
This doesn’t happen for real, only in your subconscious mind. Your mind then believes you have a gastric band fitted where you visualise your new stomach as the size of a golf ball.
This means that you eat slower and far less as you mentally feel much fuller much quicker. Your appetite is drastically reduced and weight loss is far more natural because of the gastric band hypnosis sessions.
It’s a safe and a highly effective method of weight loss and shown throughout clinical trials worldwide and is commonly referred to as the hypnoband.
Is gastric band hypnosis safe?
Gastric band hypnotic therapy is 100% safe. Your experienced hypnotherapist will only work with you to help you convince yourself that the decision to reduce food consumption, food types and change diet is a perfectly normal one. The only focal point of the therapy is to help the patient lose weight, reduce the size of their stomach and to increase self-confidence and feel far more positive about themselves.
What are the advantages of gastric band hypnotherapy over surgery?
The main advantage of gastric band hypnotherapy is that it allows a far more natural weight loss occurrence to take place. One thing all experts agree on is that drastic shifts in weight loss or weight gain are not good for the body and quite often with gastric band surgery, there is drastic weight loss. This puts unnecessary strain on the bodies heart and other major organs.
Other things to consider are:
- The substantial savings in the cost of the surgery, which can be upwards of £7,000
- No invasive surgery and associated recovery time
- No potential surgery complications
- Gastric band hypnosis helps train the mind about food, so manageable portions, reduction in fatty food consumption and sweet food consumption
- Promotes a healthy more positive and optimistic future
What is involved in gastric band hypnosis?
Gastric band hypnosis is a session based therapy, you wouldn’t expect to be “cured” in a single session. We envisage 4-5 sessions have the best effect over a period. Remember most behavioural patterns, of which overeating and bad-diet are both, need to be “rained” out of our system. Gastric band hypnosis works with your subconscious mind to retrain underlying behavioural habits.
One thing you should consider is that whilst we average 4-5 sessions, each individual is different and the depth of therapy needed will vary.
Once your hypnotherapist has assessed the issues and needs of the patient and they have agreed to move forward with the treatment, a full case history is created for records purposes.
Gastric band hypnotherapy also requires supporting activity and you would expect to be provided with either an MP3 or Cd that you can play to reinforce the subliminal suggestion.
Who can gastric band hypnotherapy help?
Again, gastric band hypnotherapy is judged on a case by case basis, at my practice my clients typically are looking to lose 3 or more stone in weight (around 20 kg). However, a good hypnotherapist will judge each case based on a very in-depth assessment for suitability.
How much does it cost and how long is treatment?
Gastric band hypnotherapy typically consists of 5-7 sessions over a 5 to 9 week, period and average costs are around £1000 – £1400. This is still significant saving over gastric band surgery.
