The program includes Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis, a non-surgical, non-invasive and safe technique developed by a UK hypnotherapist: Sheila Granger. With the use of hypnosis*, a person can be in a relaxed, comfortable state and receptive to the positive suggestions that will help them the most.
It does NOT involve dieting, rather a person becomes more satisfied with smaller amounts of food. In addition, there are a number of important changes including: to eat more consciously and slowly, to stop eating once a person feels comfortable, to increase activity/exercise, to drink more water and/or low-calorie liquids. The program incorporates the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to put you back in control of your life and eating behaviours.
*Hypnosis is a safe and comfortable therapeutic tool that is utilised by psychologists and hypnotherapists to assist in producing significant and effective changes for their clients. Hypnosis is a natural state of altered consciousness that we can all experience in our day – day lives e.g. when daydreaming or in deep concentration/focus. While the depth of relaxation/hypnotised state can vary, clients can still gain benefit/s during a light relaxation. Importantly you are always in control.
