Did you know that gastric band surgery and Lap Band® have a safer, non-invasive alternative that produces the same results minus the side effects?

Hypnosis & Virtual Gastric Band


What is Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis?

Gastric band surgery and Lap Band® are popular medical procedures that help obese people lose weight. Here at Alpha Hypnotics in Doncaster VIC, we offer a safer, non-invasive alternative that doesn’t lead to adverse events, which are commonly experienced by individuals who have undergone the famous surgical procedures.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis assists the mind in creating a mental picture of the outcome of a Lap Band® surgery. The mind draws a picture of a surgeon tying a band around the stomach to make it smaller. This process helps the person develop a new mindset for food and reduces their cravings.

The Benefits of Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

  • Safe and non-invasive
  • High success rate
  • It’s inexpensive 
  • It doesn’t have any side effects which are common in conventional stomach reduction procedures such as severe infection, pain, leakage, lap band wear, post-surgery vomiting, etc.
  • No hospital visits
  • No surgical body disfigurement 
  • Zero mortality rate
  • Minimal dietary requirements
  • No strenuous exercise routine required
  • No food restrictions or intake of special foods
  • No medical recommendation needed
  • No calorie counting

The Principle Behind Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis is designed to help you lose weight gradually but steadily. It follows the nine rules implemented by Sheila Granger, creator of the  modality, to guide the mind in developing a healthier relationship with food. Alfred has trained with Sheila and incorporated what he’s learnt, along with Ide-Ego Dynamics®, into his practice to help clients manage their weight effectively.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis vs Regular Diet

Unlike a diet program, Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis does not restrict you to certain foods only. You are free to eat whatever you want, so long as you limit yourself to three meals a day. That’s the only rule to be followed in this weight loss program. 

Dieting leads to a lose-gain-lose cycle, or yo-yo effect, which can be frustrating, especially if you’ve been working so hard to achieve your ideal weight. Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis shifts your mind’s concept of food and controls your cravings. A qualified practitioner of this modality employs hypnotherapy techniques to address the underlying cause of your unhealthy eating habits and help you develop healthy ones.

Who Can Undergo Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis?

Anyone, except those below 18 years old without prior consent from their parents and attending physician, can undergo this weight loss hypnosis. It’s highly recommended for obese people whose condition may not be suitable for conventional surgical procedures, or who don’t meet the body mass index requirements.

The hypnotherapist will adjust the program according to the specific needs of a client and their medical doctor’s advice.
