What is Gastric Band Hypnosis ?
A gastric band done by hypnotherapy is a technique that is done under hypnosis to make the patient think they have had a gastric band fitted. It is also known as a virtual gastric band. It retrains the persons mind to stop them eating when they are depressed or bored and lets them eat when they are hungry only. Basically like if the person has had a gastric band fitted surgically. The technique has been used with success in the UK, USA and Australia and is designed for people who have a body mass index of twenty five or over.
Is this Safe? Unlike a surgical operation to have a gastric band fitted this process is entirely safe. There is no recovery period, no side effects and no stress and trauma to the patients mind or body. The relaxation techniques used when you go into a hypnotic state may make you feel calmer and more relaxed in general after the session.
