The biggest difference between gastric band surgery and Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis is that hypnosis deals with the underlying issues with food. It will literally change the way you think about food.
Rather than just removing the problem through surgery, the virtual gastric band puts you in control, by changing the way you think about food. You will be equipped with the tools to manage your weight long-term, without painful surgery and the risks associated with it.
The Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis program is based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Clinical Hypnosis. CBT works by examining your thought processes and then changing them. This will help you to stop self-sabotaging and prevent binge and emotional eating. CBT and Clinical Hypnosis re-trains your brain, so you won’t be thinking about food all the time (you will be thinking instead about how much better and healthier you will look and feel and having more energy to enjoy life to the fullest!)
Clinical Hypnosis is a deep form of physical relaxation, but where the mind remains clear and focused. It’s a lot like daydreaming–we enter this state of mind multiple times throughout the day without even realising it.
In this relaxed state, the subconscious mind is receptive to therapy (positive suggestions) and there is a heightened concentration for changing limiting beliefs and behaviours and maximizing the potential of successfully achieving lasting change.
