How Can The Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band Help Me?

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is a technique that uses hypnosis to simulate the experience of gastric band surgery without the actual invasive procedure. Here’s how it can help an individual:

Portion Control: By convincing the subconscious mind that a gastric band is in place, the client may feel fuller quicker, leading to reduced food intake and better portion control.

Mindful Eating: It encourages mindful eating habits by altering the perception of hunger and satiety, making the client more aware of their body’s signals.

Behavioural Change: Gastric Band Hypnotherapy aims to modify eating behaviors, encouraging healthier choices and reducing the desire for excessive or unhealthy foods.

Weight Loss: Over time, these changes in behaviour and eating habits can lead to weight loss, aiding those struggling with obesity or excessive weight.

Non-invasive Approach: As it doesn’t involve surgery, it’s considered a non-invasive method to address weight management issues, potentially making it more accessible and appealing to some individuals.

Psychological Support: It can offer psychological support and motivation for individuals looking to change their relationship with food and improve their health

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement that assesses body fat based on height and weight. It provides a general indication of whether an individual’s weight falls within a healthy range. Having a higher BMI can be associated with increased health risks such as heart disease, diabetes, and joint problems, while maintaining a healthy BMI often correlates with better overall health and reduced risk of chronic diseases. It’s essential to consider BMI alongside other health indicators for a comprehensive understanding of one’s health status

  • Emotional Connection: We will be address any emotional eating patterns and triggers associated with overeating and help to disconnect from negative emotions related to food and eating habits.

Session 3: Reinforcement and Behavioural Modification
