Gastric Band Hypnosis Reviews

What is virtual gastric band hypnosis?

Over the last few years, many people have resorted to Gastric Band Surgery to lose weight instead of turning to surgery. Using proven hypnosis techniques, a Virtual Gastric Band can be ‘fitted’, giving you the same feelings that would be experienced with surgery, but without the discomfort, time, inconvenience, cost, and risk allowing you to lose weight steadily and safely.

A Virtual Gastric Band, through Hypnosis, allows you to feel as though you have a Gastric Band fitted on your stomach so you have all of the feelings of feeling full without the risk and discomfort that an Invasive Gastric Band Surgery would bring.

Is hypnotherapy a safe alternative to surgery?

Absolutely. Hypnotherapy addresses the real reasons why you overeat in the first place. All the negative feelings you have experienced your whole life are dealt with in a healthy and safe manner. Not only will you be able to lose weight from not eating as much, but your outlook on life will also change for the better and your relationship with food will be healthy and normal.

Why Virtual Lap-Band Hypnosis is a Better Alternative

To begin with, there is NO surgery involved.  We work with your mind, we don’t surgically change your body.  There’s no time off work required for “recovery”.  To be frank, it has been my experience that Virtual Gastric Band has a higher success rate (90% in my practice) than the actual surgery and the cost is about 10% of the surgery.


The Virtual Lap Band is a non-surgical technique using advanced hypnosis to convince your subconscious that you’ve had a band inserted in your stomach. We train the subconscious to be more aware of when you’re actually satisfied and don’t need to finish everything on your plate.  That old recording of, “Eat everything on your plate young lady/man” has been replaced with positive feelings and relaxed comfort.


At Engle Hypnotherapy we use a holistic approach: mind/body, not simply body.  Emotional eating is at the core of most obese people.  They don’t eat because they want to get heavy, they eat because they’re stressed, or bored, or even reacting to childhood traumas. Much of the time in hypnotherapy is spent in exploring the emotional aspects of your eating and the healing of those aspects.  It makes you feel lighter to release these burdens.  It gives you increased self-confidence and self-esteem.  You begin to love yourself in a natural way, again.


Remember, this process allows you to be satisfied with much smaller amounts of food.  You are NOT restricted by food and you don’t have to eat prepared cardboard-meals.  You simply feel satisfied and you do not want any more.  In hypnotherapy, we help you to permanently change your eating and lifestyle habits.  I do this by communicating directly with your subconscious mind, where all your habits and unconscious thought patterns are stored.


This program is not a short-term fix.  It allows you to eat what you want but in smaller portions.  This means you won’t feel deprived and consequently gives you a long-term solution to weight control.


The basic Virtual Lap Band program is five sessions: one 2 hour session to begin with and then four 1 hour sessions.  You’ll have my personal attention.  You will have recordings to listen to (13 minutes) and limited homework to do. I have hypnotized over 10,000 people and have completed over two hundred virtual lap bands.  My success rate on Skype duplicates my in-office success rate and can be done in the comfort of your home or office.
