Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

of New England Group

Virtual Gastric Band - also called Lap Band Hypnosis - is a hypnotherapeutic procedure which aims to simulate the impact and benefits of gastric band surgery. The major difference is the "surgery" takes place in the subconscious mind of the patient only.

The Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis procedure is available to anybody who wishes to lose significant weight regardless of whether they're candidates for weight loss surgery or not.

The hypnosis procedure was originally developed in Europe as an alternative to weight loss surgeries such as gastric band and gastric bypass surgery, and this specific VGB program was developed by Sheila Granger Dip Hyp, GQHP, GHR. The hypnotherapeutic procedure eliminates the risk of the surgical procedure it replaces.

Candidates for weight loss surgery include people who weigh more than 100 pounds over their ideal body weight, have a body mass index (BMI) of 40, and/or type 2 diabetes. These people are also candidates for a Virtual Gastric Band procedure, however anybody who wants to lose weight can benefit from the virtual gastric band procedure.

Results and trials so far of Virtual Gastric Band treatments have been promising. Hypnotherapists report that patients who've received the treatments have experienced a 74% - 95% success rate, losing significant amounts of weight.

After offering a successful weight loss hypnosis program to private clients for the last eight years I’ve developed a group weight loss hypnosis program based on my private program. I introduced the program to a select number of people over the last winter and it is now generally available in the Metrowest Boston area. The program is built on my philosophy that a weight loss journey should be made just once – no more – and this clinic helps people break the cycle of repeated attempts and instead focuses on lasting weight loss.

Everyone knows it: candy and baked goods are packed with sugar. They’re not good for our teeth and when they’re eaten regularly, they can lead to rapid weight gain and a variety of health problems related to obesity.

Portion Control and Virtual Gastric Band – Marriage Made in Stomach

If portion control is the cause of your weight woes then the Virtual Gastric Band or Lap Band Hypnosis procedure is a program you should consider for weight loss.

We’ve become accustomed to restaurant size portions when we go out and then we repeat it at home. Our dinner plates are larger than necessary and we feel the need to fill the plate with generous portions of everything.
