Have you ever said to yourself ‘I am going to lose weight’? Yet a few weeks later you realise that after making that decision, despite your efforts, you still weighed the same, or even more.
This is because you made that decision with your conscious mind, the part that is temporal and acts in the moment, rather than your subconscious mind, which stores your long-lasting ideas and beliefs.

Hypnosis allows us to communicate with the unconscious mind and alter your underlying beliefs and in turn, modify your behaviour. This happens because hypnotic suggestions, supported by visualisation can increase willpower and levels of motivation to change your eating habits.

The increased confidence gained in working towards your goals begins a chain reaction with a desire to bring about other lifestyle changes. So you find yourself with new feelings of pride in your ongoing achievements and a renewed zest for life!

Hypnotic Gastric Band

The gastric band operation involves having a band fastened around the top portion of the stomach, resulting in the patient feeling fuller more quickly and for longer, feeling hungry less often, eating smaller portions and losing weight over time. Most patients achieve a steady ongoing weight loss until they reach their target weight.

The hypnotic gastric band is a non-invasive alternative to actually going under the knife and through the use of hypnosis and hypnotic suggestions, your unconscious will be persuaded that you physically underwent the surgery. It is designed to create a different relationship with food for you, and maybe alcohol as well, so that you eat much healthier portions and enjoy a generally healthier diet.

The hypnotic gastric band has been reported to have achieved an 80% success rate, which is actually higher than having the surgical procedure, which only works for 70% of people. Additional benefits include the lack of side effects that are commonly experienced from the surgery, such as nausea and vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea or acid reflux. Also, the cost of having a physical band fitted can cost around £8,000, a huge amount more than the hypnotic gastric band.

Please note: The hypnotic gastric band is intended for those who have stones rather than just pounds to lose and is generally reserved for those with a BMI of 35 or over.
