The Virtual Gastric Band System, help for weight loss using hypnosis
The Hypnoband system is designed for those who are either clinically obese or very over weight with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 25 with no underlying emotional problems.
Many people who are in this position are opting for surgery to assist their weight loss. This involves the fitting of a gastric band to their stomach which effectively reduces the size of their stomach and physically limits the amount of food they can eat.
Over approximately three sessions, you are taken through the process of being psychologicaly prepared for life with the virtual band as well as having a gastric band fitted – only this takes place in your mind rather than having a real operation.
The aim of the system is to convince you that your stomach is smaller and that you can only eat smaller amounts of food.
The Hypnoband system is a combination of visualisation, suggestion therapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help prepare you for life with your virtual gastric band and keeping your weight off in the long term which are carried out over approximately three sessions.
A little About the Session Content
The first session consists of finding out some general information about your situation and attitudes to food. An initial hypnosis session takes place and a recording of the session is provided that you must listen to every day until your next session.
During your second session an assessment is carried out to find out how you are progressing with the recording. If you are responding well, the ‘operation hypnosis’ session will be carried out.
A third session can be taken if you need to adjust the ‘band’ should it be too restrictive or not restrictive enough.
