The 'virtual gastric band' method for weight loss using
hypnosis has been in use for some time now and has generated a
lot of positive results and positive press from the global
The effectiveness of hypnosis has been expanded to include
the Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss system, a non-surgical
technique that imitates the real gastric band surgery, but
without any of the negative side effects. Consisting of four
hypnotherapy sessions, the program is designed to convince the
mind and body that a silicon band has made the stomach smaller,
enabling the client to eat less, reduce portion sizes, and feel
satisfied eating smaller amounts of food.
When Sheila Granger, a Hypnotherapist in the UK, decided to
include the 'virtual gastric band' concept into her practice,
she ran a trial of 25 volunteers - of various ages, weight,
gender, shapes and sizes - in a group setting. During the first
trial, she saw the group for just 3 one hour sessions. She was
astounded to record that 24 of the 25 participants lost over 14
stone (almost 90kgs) between them in only three weeks, and all
but one reported a change in their eating habits.
The Virtual Gastric Band program has certainly attracted a
lot of interest and media attention. You can watch a BBC report
and find more information by visiting Sheila's website at
I trained with Sheila and now offer this successful program
to clients. I'm excited to say that the results so far are
positive, highly encouraging and a pleasure to watch.
The Virtual Gastric Band program is NOT a diet! You can eat
anything you want.
The simple fact is that most people eat far more food than
their bodies actually need. The Virtual Gastric Band program
enables the client to think differently about food and form new
habits that they can maintain, without feeling deprived, which
makes sustained weight loss more achievable.
