The Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the imagination to insert a gastric band by hypnosis. The results are that you will have a smaller appetite and be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes the way you feel and think about food.
During the hypnotherapy session, the brain is convinced that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake and that there is no need for more food.
This is not a diet – we know that diets only work in the short term. This is a permanent change to the way you think and feel about food, hence a permanent change to your weight and because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry.
The therapy consists of four sessions spread over eight weeks. Each session lasts for one hour and will also deal with causes of overeating, emotional eating, habits, cravings and other reasons why you overeat, – making this a very successful program.
Instead of actually going through with gastric band surgery, Hugh the hypnotherapist will instead convince your subconscious mind that you have undergone surgery. He will guide you into a trance and talk you through the procedure as if it is actually happening. On a conscious level, you will be aware that you have received hypnotherapy, but on a subconscious level, you will believe that you have actually received surgery.
The success story of having a hypnotic gastric band fitted have been well documented in the UK and clinical trials are showing an 80% success rate.
