Hypnotherapy & virtual gastric band hypnosis
Virtually anyone can be helped by hypnotherapy. We can all experience hypnosis, since we all day-dream and hypnosis is similar to a pleasant relaxed day-dream.
When hypnotised you: don't go to sleep, your hearing is perfectly normal, your memory is often enhanced and you can talk normally. In fact, it is a pleasant experience in which you are helped - not controlled. In hypnosis you will not pass out or go to sleep. You will hear the therapist's soothing and positive words which will help to release any unwanted, negative thoughts or habits
This can help to stop smoking, phobias, weight loss, anxiety, stress, depression, sleep disorders, stutters, bruxism (teeth grinding) and many more.
You can expect to gain greater control over your life and experience a feeling of well being and calmness.
The Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain the person to be satisfied with smaller portions of food. Hypnotherapy convinces the mind that the stomach is full after a smaller amount and there is no desire to eat more.
A Virtual Gastric Band is like 'flicking a switch in the brain.' It changes a person's attitude towards food and helps them regain control over cravings and bad habits. Feedback shows increased willpower and no need for the person to deprive themselves of the foods they enjoy. Weight is lost naturally and consistently without dieting.
The most important difference about the Virtual Gastric Band in comparison to the actual gastric band is that the virtual version deals with the issues in a person's mind and their relationship with food. Having a foreign body inside their stomach simply does not deal with the psychological factors. A bariatric surgery patient has to eat a pureed diet for the first few weeks and can still overeat causing the band to burst. With the Virtual Gastric Band if they find they are eating too much it can be tightened under hypnotherapy. There is no invasive surgery and they are treating the psychological problems not just the physical.
