Gastric band hypnotherapy
Gastric band hypnotherapy is a procedure where using a three-session course of Hypnotherapy; I will suggest to your subconscious mind that you have had a gastric band fitted around your stomach. After the procedure, you will feel fuller as if your stomach has been constricted.
The surgical procedure is normally considered a last resort for people who are morbidly obese and involves fitting a band around the upper part of the stomach. This band limits the amount of food you can eat, helping you to lose excess weight. This surgical intervention, as does all surgery, comes with risks and complications.
Gastric band hypnotherapy or having a ‘virtual gastric band’ fitted does not require surgery. I get your subconscious mind to believe it has had a gastric band fitted. The aim is that on a subconscious level, you will accept that you have had the band fitted and that your stomach has been reduced in size.
Of course, Hypnotherapy doesn’t involve surgery and is completely safe.
A gastric band is made of silicone and is used in weight loss surgery. The band is placed around the upper section of the stomach, meaning food is restricted to this smaller section meaning the amount of food that can be stored in the stomach is greatly reduced. The purpose of a gastric band is to reduce the amount of food you can physically eat.
This you to feel full after eating only a small healthy, encouraging weight loss. The people who have this surgery have come to it as a last resort after trying other methods of weight loss.
Quite often, there are unpleasant side-effects and complications. Sometimes patients will experience feelings of sickness and severe indigestion and will need further surgery to adjust or remove it.
Agreeing to have surgery is a big step for you to take and one that considers a great deal of thought before going down this route; this is where gastric band hypnotherapy comes in.
Gastric band hypnotherapy
The idea is to convince you at a subconscious level that you have had an operation to insert a gastric band. Your body responds to this suggestion by making you feel fuller quicker as if you had the real surgery.
What do I do?
Using Hypnotherapy will guide you into a state of wonderful relaxation. In this beautifully relaxed state, your subconscious is open to my suggestions. Now I will use specialist techniques to make suggestions that you’ve had a physical gastric band fitted. You’re subconscious will accept these suggestions, your behaviour will change in response. I will also give you suggestions surrounding your confidence to help you commit to this change in your lifestyle.
How will I feel after?
The aim of gastric band hypnotherapy is to reduce your appetite and encourage a healthier and happier relationship with food. Because your subconscious will believe you have had a gastric band fitted, it will believe your stomach is now much smaller. This, in turn, makes your brain send out messages that you are full after consuming less food.
The sessions will be a pleasantly relaxing experience; you will have a feeling of calm when you come out of hypnotherapy.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis, which is an altered state of consciousness. You are not in a trance at any time in the session. You are aware of your surroundings at all times. I will guide you into a very relaxed state of mind.
So that you can experience what it is like to be in the state of Hypnosis, I have included a free sample click here.
