By using the Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Virtual Gastric Band system is a long term solution to your weight problems.
How does it work?

The weight control programme utilizing the concept of Virtual Gastric Band it takes place over four weeks. Four, one hour sessions each utilizing techniques that are designed to bring about permanent change in your eating habits.

The reason this takes place over four weeks, is to form a habit, and generally it takes 28 days to form a habit in someone, remember this is not a programme designed for a short term fix, it is to get you to where you want to be, and to stay there.

It includes a back up CD for you to listen to every day, which reinforces the new messages and aids that permanent change in behaviour.

During the therapy your subconscious mind is convinced that you have had a Gastric Band fitted. Your body reacts by feeling full after you have eaten only a small amount of food. As well as reducing the amount of food you eat, you will eat healthier, less-fattening foods.

The advantages of Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis over traditional surgery are as follows:


  • Surgical risks are eliminated
  • There is no pain involved
  • Costs are a fraction of those for traditional surgery
  • Stress and emotional eating are also addressed
  • The procedure is totally pain-free
If you have been thinking about gastric band surgery, consider the following facts:

Gastric banding is a major surgical procedure to place an inflatable band around your stomach. A port is also inserted and stitched to the abdominal muscle wall so that saline solution can be injected or withdrawn. This allows for the tightness of the band to be adjusted. This limits the amount of food you can consume. Gastric banding is now available under Medicare but there are a number of key issues to consider:


  • One person in every 2,000 dies because of complications with this surgery
  • There is a stringent selection process - you must be morbidly obese or have serious health problems
  • There is a long recovery period
  • Potential medical complications including infection, internal bleeding, gastritis and ulceration
  • The band can slip or in some cases be subject to erosion (i.e. the band works its way through the stomach wall allowing the gastric contents to leak into the body cavity)
  • Vomiting or regurgitation of food
  • The port may bulge through the skin
  • The port can "flip over" so that the membrane can no longer be accessed with a needle from the outside (this often goes hand in hand with a tube kink, and may require repositioning as a minor surgical procedure under local anaesthesia)
  • The port may get disconnected from the tube or the tube may be perforated in the course of a port access attempt (both would result in loss of fill fluid and restriction, and likewise require a minor operation).
  • Medicare and private insurance covers about $1,000 leaving you to pay about $10,000
  • There are NO guarantees of success
