Hypnosis Gastric Band
Gastric Band Surgery
...is becoming more and more common in the UK, while in the USA it’s the most commonly performed surgical procedure!
A surgical Gastric Band works by tying off part of the stomach allowing only small portions of food to pass through, eat too much, and it will be very uncomfortable or you may even be sick! Private surgery is very expensive and the NHS has strict criteria for who is allowed the surgery.
‘My head still says ‘eat, eat....’
After surgery, many people have fantastic success, others are not so fortunate. You see, the surgical Gastric Band is a tool, to be worked with, it is not a magic solution. Your mind and body must work together!
Hypnosis Gastric Band?
No surgery, no pain, The Hypnosis Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique using hypnosis to train your mind and body to accept less food. Your mind and body working together, telling your stomach that it is satisfied and there is no need for any more food.
The Hypnosis Gastric Band process has five stages, an initial free consultation to ensure you are suitable for the therapy (which can be by phone) and then 4 hypnosis sessions. The first 3 sessions take place over a period of 3 weeks, the fourth and final session is 3-4 weeks later. (It is sometimes possible to combine your free consultation and first session).
The Hypnosis Gastric Band is best suited to people who have a BMI of 28 or above (for surgery, a BMI of at least 40 is required!)
If you already have a surgical gastric band, why not have a Hypnosis Adjustment? (Only suitable if you have had at least 3 surgical adjustments/fills)
Hypnosis Gastric Bands are not usually suitable if you have previously had a serious eating disorder, (please contact me further information)
What happens in our sessions?
As with my personalised Hypnotherapy Weight Reduction Programme, at your first session we look at your food habits and behaviors and give you coping skills to deal with them. We will also look at the emotional and environmental reasons for your overeating. An understanding of our often unconscious bad habits is a big step along the path to getting rid of those old habits! No more obsessing about what you should or shouldn’t eat, just naturally making sensible and intelligent choices about food and exercise.
Your second session takes you to meet your ‘surgeon’, and your ‘operation’ will be performed at your third session. As you reduce your weight, just like a belt, your band becomes less tight, so three to four weeks later, at your fourth session, your Hypnosis Gastric Band tightened up.
Along the way, you’ll learn how to cope with setbacks and how to love your new body - at the size, shape and weight you choose to be.
And by learning all these new things, and becoming the size shape and weight that’s right for you, you’ll notice other areas of your life just get better and better, you become more confident, have greater self esteem, and enhance your life and happiness more and more.
