What is it?
The Virtual (or Hypnotic) Gastric Band is an affordable, non-surgical alternative to having an operation to fit a physical gastric band, which is used to help people lose weight and improve their health. It does not require medical referral. Unlike the surgical procedure, the Virtual Gastric Band includes full emotional support too.
Is it safe?
As it is purely a ‘virtual ’procedure it is completely safe.
What does it involve?
Over several sessions, we will look together at your eating habits, deal with any emotional issues you may have around food and I will take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. The process uses hypnotherapy and other behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight – and stay there!
Does it work?
Results for virtual gastric band are reported to exceed those of the physical alternative (The Sun, January 2013). The technique has featured on TV, radio and in the national press. Just as having a traditional gastric band fitted it’s not a quick fix, nor a miracle cure.
Is it right for Me?
The band is best for people who have 2 stone or more to lose and are struggling with large portion sizes, our other programme – “Think Slim Be Slim”- is suitable for those who eat smaller portions but more frequently during the day. With both programmes a number of life changes are required.
What does it cost?
The regular price is £200
