Taking yourself on retreat is a beautiful ritual of self-care, and offers a time to reflect and increase self-awareness. It provides you with an escape from the demands of your normal life and responsibilities.
At Margaret River Life-Changing Retreats, one of our signature retreat offerings is centred on the Virtual Gastric Band (VGB) technique of hypnotherapy for weight loss.
VGB hypnosis is the process of communicating with your subconscious mind the need to shift your unhealthy eating habits into healthy ones. This is a noninvasive, non-medical procedure facilitated through clinical hypnotherapy.
It's important to note that unlike a diet program, VGB doesn't restrict you to certain food groups; you can eat anything you want, but in smaller portions. Research shows that 95% of people who go on a diet, end up gaining back their weight in the span of five years.
Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis has been successfully implemented by thousands of practitioners all over the world. The process utilises the concept of a “virtual” gastric band administered through clinical hypnotherapy. It is a safe, natural, and gentle process that facilitates communication with the subconscious mind, encouraging a “reprogramming” to alter poor habits and develop a healthy mindset toward eating. It is the key that assists in harnessing the mental power that every individual possesses within and consequently the ability to make permanent changes in their lives.
This is not a medical procedure. The Virtual Gastric Band can be done quickly and privately without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists. There is no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment, and therefore it has none of the potential risks or trauma that can be associated with surgery.
Success rates of more than 95% have been measured on patients who are treated with the Virtual Gastric Band programme, and similar numbers are associated with other issues treated with hypnotherapy.
As with any life change, your success requires your full commitment to the path and process. We are here to support you as you embark on your journey.
The yoga sessions at Margaret River Life-Changing Retreats are designed to support you and enhance the hypnotherapy process. Prior to your hypnosis session, we will relax and condition your mind and body through yoga and meditation.
