HYPNO-BAND

Weight Loss HypnosisSystem®

The World’s No.1 Gastric Band Hypnotherapy System

What is the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system and how does it work?

You may have seen that Hypno-Band has been heavily featured in the media.  The HYPNO-BAND System is a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques.  Hypno-Band helps you to change your eating habits forever by fitting a “virtual gastric band” to your stomach, whilst in hypnosis, using the mind/body connection thus helping you to eat less and less often.  There is no actual surgery involved.  Gastric band hypnosis works by making you believe that the size of your stomach has reduced in size and therefore you will eat smaller portions and feel full much quicker. This means that you can lose weight naturally and easily with the help f hypnosis and without undergoing surgery.

The ‘virtual gastric band’ helps you to change the way you eat i.e. eating smaller portions and eating less often but still leaving you feeling satisfied.  As overeating is heavily linked to negative emotions we spend time addressing these problems and resolve them to get the full benefit.  This enables us to help you to only eat when you are hungry.  This is why the Hypno-Band technique works and most diets fail.

A Virtual Gastric Band has huge advantages as there is no need for you to go under the knife, have an anaesthetic or spend weeks recovering from the procedure. The Gastric Hypnotic Band is also significantly cheaper than the £4,000 to £6,000 cost of surgery or even the cost of some slimming clubs.  Another advantage is that hypnosis can be a wonderful feeling.

Am I suitable for the Gastric Hypnotic Band?

If you are over-weight (with a BMI of over 25) and are fully committed to losing weight then you should be suitable for the gastric hypno-band. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications.  All clients are assessed before commencing with the Virtual Gastric Band procedure.

Will the Hypno-Band work for me?

Well, that is up to you – you need to be serious and committed to losing weight and be prepared to change your life-style and eating habits. During each Gastric Band hypnosis session you may be given tasks or homework to do which must be completed before the next hypnosis session to ensure your success. The Hypno-Band system gives you the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.

Is the Hypno-Band guaranteed?

Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees. Even a surgeon cannot guarantee that an actual gastric band will work. It should be noted that it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight. No system will work if you are not 100% committed. The mind is a very powerful instrument and by using the HYPNO-BAND system you will have the tools and power to change your eating habits. The only way to lose significant amounts of weight is to eat less and move more! The HYPNO-BAND system helps you to change behaviour and life-style which in turn provides you with the ability to lose weight and stay that way!

Can everyone go into hypnosis?

Anyone over the age of about 5 who can follow instructions can get the benefits of seeing a hypnotherapist.  In order for this to work, you have to want to go into hypnosis and want to lose weight.

Will I be under the Gastric Band Hypnotherapists control?

No hypnotherapist can make you do anything that you do not want to do or behave in a way that is not normal for you.

Does Gastric Band Hypnosis create side effects?

No. There are no known side effects associated with undergoing the Hypno-Band procedure.  The Gastric Hypnotic Band procedure is relaxing and comfortable.

How long does the Hypno-Band procedure take?

Generally the whole process takes place over four one hour sessions. The first three hypno-band sessions will take place on a weekly basis with the final session 4 to 6 weeks later. There is some flexibility in this program so feel free to ask the hypnotherapist how it can be tailored to you. I ask all my Hypno-Band clients to fully complete the program within 12 weeks of the start date.

What do you get for your money with the Hypno-Band Program?

The HYPNO-BAND system comprises a series of four one hour sessions plus cd or mp3 recordings which you use for reinforcement. A full dietary and medical history will be taken and an initial assessment done before commencing. Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of hypnosis,  relaxation and calmness which results from being hypnotised. We will also begin your journey to losing weight. In the second session you will encounter the HYPNO-BAND and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted whilst in hypnosis. In subsequent sessions the HYPNO-BAND virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted. In later sessions the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating. Following the hypnosis sessions you should use your CD or MP3 to back-up and reinforce the work you have done.

The price for the whole Hypno-Band program is £365 (4 sessions) or for an extra follow up hypnotherapy session £395
