Avir­tual gas­tric band to lose weight might sound like fan­tasy but this hyp­nother­apy tech­nique is help­ing slim­mers shed stones. Per­haps not that sur­pris­ing as hyp­no­sis has a proven track record in help­ing peo­ple give up smok­ing or over­come pho­bias.

The Vir­tual Gas­tric Band hyp­nother­apy tech­nique was in­vented by UK hyp­nother­a­pist Sheila Granger who trained more than 2,500 hyp­no­tists in the method. Sheila is a ac­cred­ited by the Gen­eral Hyp­nother­apy Reg­is­ter which op­er­ates to the pro­fes­sional prac­tice stan­dards of The Gen­eral Hyp­nother­apy Stan­dards Coun­cil https://www.gen­er­al­hyp­nother­apy-reg­is­ The Coun­cil de­scribes hyp­no­sis as “heal­ing by trance, a state of mind en­hanced by (al­though not ex­clu­sively) men­tal and phys­i­cal re­lax­ation, in which our sub­con­scious is able to com­mu­ni­cate with our con­scious mind. The state of mind can be by self-hyp­no­sis or with help from an­other per­son.”

Sheila says, “There’s still a per­cep­tion that hyp­nother­apy is just en­ter­tain­ment or quack­ery but the key part of the word is ‘ther­apy’. My meth­ods are a mil­lion miles away from the ‘hyp­no­tist’ stage shows get­ting peo­ple to do silly things. I use safe, ev­i­dence-based clin­i­cal tech­niques to help change the way peo­ple think and give them strate­gies to man­age chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions.”

Vir­tu­ally ev­ery­one can be hyp­no­tised, but some more read­ily than oth­ers. Whether hyp­nother­apy can help you is usu­ally ap­par­ent within a few ses­sions. Dur­ing and af­ter los­ing weight with hyp­nother­apy, as with any other method, it is im­por­tant to also im­prove eat­ing habits with mod­er­ate por­tions of healthy foods – like the Mediter­ranean diet, be­low.
