What is Gastric Band Hypnosis?

Gastric Band Hypnosis is a technique that utilizes the power of your mind to fit a "virtual gastric band" to your stomach, resulting in a decrease of appetite and food consumption as the band restricts the volume of food that your stomach can hold.

How a real gastric band works - The small upper stomach felsl very full after just a small amount of food

Does this procedure involve surgery?  

No! A virtual gastric band is a completely non-invasive procedure, using relaxing Hypnosis and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

Is it painful ?  

Absolutely not, you will leave feeling very relaxed and calm. Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis is an extremely relaxing and pleasurable experience.

What about possible Complications?  

A virtual Gastric Band has no side effects as it is a totally Hypnotic process and no physical intervention takes place. A Virtual Gastric Band is completely safe.

Whilst hypnotised will I be aware of what is happening?  

Yes, you will feel very, very calm and relaxed, but you will be in control all the way through the procedure. What we are going to do is nothing like stage or TV hypnosis. No Hypnotherapist in the world can make anyone do anything, they don't want to!

How do I find out if I'm a suitable candidate for a Virtual Gastric Band procedure?  

The first thing you need is commitment to your weight loss programme, as with any Gastric Band procedure virtual or not, you do have to put some effort in to be successful. This procedure is for clients who have a BMI of 30 or above, however you may still be suitable if yours is   over 25, so use the BMI calculator on this page.  The next step is a consultation to discuss your Weight, Eating habits and lifestyle. The results of which will outline your suitability.

How successful is it ?  

AsWith any Gastric Band procedure, once completed you will have to adapt your lifestyle to suit. The key to success is YOU! No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. You must be prepared to adapt your eating habits to get the maximum effect. If you are totally serious about losing weight, then it will definitely work for you. The Virtual Gastric Band is a very powerful procedure that will provide you with the psychological tools and commitment you need to not only lose weight, but to maintain that new healthy you.

So what's next ?  

Let’s get the process going and help you to get your weight back on track by resetting  your  mind to really help kick start your new healthy lifestyle.

Should this programme not be suitable please don’t worry as you will definitely   be suitable for the Weight Loss Thrive Programme which does not involve Hypnotherapy.

Hi Rita,

"I just wanted to say a huge Thank You for how you have helped me turn my life around. After having my beautiful babies and despite loving being a new mum I kind of got a bit lost with my own identity. Putting on more than 6 stone during the pregnancies had shattered my confidence and self esteem, As of today I have lost a total of 7 stone!!!! It amazes me at how easy it has been by thinking about things from a different angle, or more importantly not letting a tiny thought grow out of control!! I am well on my way to my goal weight and in only a fraction of the time that I predicted.

Coming to see you is probably the best decision that I have made in a long time and I will recommend you at every opportunity Thank you so much” Sarah

If your weight is getting out of control and no matter which diet you try, you continue to put weight on, or “Yo-Yo” up and down, then the Gastric  Hypno-Band Weight Loss System is for you! The Gastric Hypno-Band is a virtual gastric band technique that can help you to lose weight easily, quickly and permanently.

Gastric Hypno-Band is a safe, risk free and inexpensive alternative to Gastric Band Surgery and with over 800 Licensed Practitioners in 39 countries is the World’s Number one and Original Gastric Band Hypnotherapy system.

How do I know if I’m suitable for a Hypno-Band?

Hypno-Band on the Television

The Gastric Hypno-Band Weight Loss System has appeared on National Television numerous times, although the interview which really brought the attention of the system into the public domain appeared on Breakfast TV with Dr. Hillary and Lorraine Kelly who spoke to Headteacher Kaye Lindley who lost over six stones and dropped six dress sizes after having a Virtual Gastric Band fitted at the Elite Clinic in Spain.

Hypno-Band on Channel Four’s “Embarrassing Bodies”

On the 28th January 2011 Channel Four’s popular series “Embarrassing Bodies” followed a Gastric Hypno-Band client in Scotland who successfully lost weight and in fact became her local “Slimming World” groups “Top Slimmer”!

And YOU could too!

The most important thing to consider if you are thinking about having the treatment is just how much you want to reach your target weight. It is important to be clear that just as with a REAL surgical gastric band, you will have to follow guidelines and procedures if you want to be successful.

The treatment was originally designed for people who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher but after helping literally thousands of people to lose weight, it was found that people with a BMI of 25 and above can also benefit.

Your Body Mass Index is a measure of your body fat to weight ratio, and is a good indicator of your risk factor to potentially damaging health problems such as Type Two Diabetes. To determine YOUR BMI just enter your data into the BMI Calculator below.

What happens if I decide I want a Hypno-Band?
