Virtual Gastric Banding

What have you got to lose!

New Zealand has the third highest adult obesity rate in the OECD, and our rates are rising. Almost one in three adult New Zealanders (over 15 years) is obese, and one in ten children.

For many of us food can be all consuming, we spend most of the day thinking about what we are going to eat. Most of us will know what is "good" and "bad" foods, however the temptation is too great and our desire, gets the better of us, there is always tomorrow...

  • Do you emotionally eat? Tired, stressed, unhappy, boredom

  • Do you eat until you feel full and uncomfortable?

  • Do you constantly think about food?

  • Do you struggle with portion control?

  • Do you believe that you are addicted to food?

  • Have you constantly dieted throughout your life?

  • Have you lost weight, but eventually regained the weight?

  • If you are overweight and have answered yes to any of these questions and you want to change the way you think, feel and behave, then clinical hypnotherapy for weight loss incorporating "Virtual Gastric Banding" may be appropriate for you.

    The Virtual Gastric Band is a weight loss programme that utilises the concept of a "virtual gastric band" operation and clinical hypnotherapy. The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain the way that you think and feel so that you become satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It helps clients to feel fuller quicker, consequently helping clients to reduce their portion sizes and to become more aware of the full signal from their stomachs. Once these suggestions have been imprinted into the subconscious mind, they help clients to acquire new eating patterns. Learn how to feed your body with what it needs, rather than allow your mind to feed it what it wants.
