Virtual Gastric Banding

Hypnotherapy Adelaide

The Adelaide Hypnosis Centre offers the hypnotic lap band surgery – the safest way to shape up. Change your life with weight loss hypnotherapy today!  Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of dollars!  The virtual gastric band is a non-surgical technique using the power of hypnosis to train your mind and body to accept less food. Through hypnosis your brain tells your stomach that it is full and there is no need for any more food.  Weight loss by virtual gastric band has received a lot of positive media attention regarding this novel approach to successful weight management.

The Hypno-Band is the World Leader in gastric band hypnotherapy and is the original Virtual Gastric Band method in UK, USA, Australia and many more countries.   Find out what your BMI currently is by visiting the Hypno-Band website with the following link:

Targeted approach to weight loss using hypnosis to convince the sub conscious mind that you have had Virtual Gastric Banding.  Your food intake will be reduced and constant thoughts of food will quieten down, leading to weight loss.   The Program is individualized to your needs. At the first session you will be provided with a CD to help reinforce the learnings and give ongoing support. For your convenience we have bundled the program into 3 sessions. From the first session you will eat less and feel so much more motivated to these positive changes.

The program follows the principles of the actual surgical procedure but the virtual gastric band carries with it no risk and no on-going medical treatment.

Session 1: We discuss your specific issues around eating and clearly develop your desired outcomes, followed by a hypnosis session wherein you will believe that your stomach is so much smaller and thus you will eat less whilst feeling satisfied.

Session 2: In hypnosis you undergo the virtual bariatric surgery. The Surgeon and the Anaesthetist will provide you with all the facts about the surgery and its benefits. We also begin to assist you making change from any unwanted eating habits and install the positive eating behaviours you desire.

Session 3: Focus will be letting go of any other unwanted behaviours, thoughts or habits that have been preventing you from obtaining that slim and healthy you, providing you with the ongoing life skills that enable you to say “no” to excess foods, “no” to eg chocolate etc. In hypnosis, you consult with the Surgeon and the virtual band is adjusted ensuring your best outcomes.

Subsequent Sessions: Purpose is to keep you motivated, on track and to address any specific issues eg Chocolate or other food addictions; exercise motivation etc. I encourage clients to be self-empowered and notice what is happening in their thoughts (rather than be told when to book).  Some clients come every 8 weeks or just before a major event such as a cruise, Christmas or Easter.  The outcome will be that it is now easy and effortless for you to stay on track.

The Hypno-Band Surgery can be done quickly and privately without the expense or need to wait on real life hospital waiting lists.

HypnoBand Hypnotherapy Trial conducted in 2012.

I conducted a trial with 23 participants in 2012.  Groups trialled were single sessions, couples and groups up to 5 people.  At weight in at end of first week a total loss recorded 28.9kg loss for weight status figures provided from 21 participants.
Participants reported reduction of clothing – from size 24 to size 20 and size 20 to size 16 in 4 weeks.  Other participants reported that they cannot eat the amount of food they normally eat some eating 1/3 less and others reporting halving their food portions.  Men have had to tighten their belts and then purchase new trousers.


Be committed to attend your booked sessions; listen to your take home CDs; listen to the signals your stomach and mind send to you regarding being satisfied; taking 100% responsibility for your desired outcomes, and focus on what you want.
