Lap Band Hypnosis / Virtual Gastric Band

When it comes to weight loss, it’s an understatement to say there is no magic bullet and no quick fix. In a country where it’s been estimated that nearly two thirds of the population is overweight, if there was an easy solution we wouldn’t be where we are today.

While diet and exercise programs are aggressively marketed, and many people are seeking more drastic solutions to their weight problems in the form of gastric banding and gastric sleeve surgery – there’s a newer player on the weight loss scene, “virtual gastric banding” via hypnosis.

Gastric band hypnotherapy works by putting the client under hypnosis, and with the use of suggestions and sometimes a soundtrack of hospital noises, suggests to the person that they’ve undertaken an actual lap banding procedure. This is designed to help them manage portion control in the conscious state.

Can hypnosis really help with weight loss?

According to Mailin Colman, president of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association(AHA), hypnosis can work well for clients seeking help with weight loss, however, she points out that the virtual lap banding option isn’t suitable for everyone.

“(Virtual lap banding) has been around for a few years and can work well on some people, but weight loss is complex and people’s motivations and triggers for eating or overeating can be very different.

Lyndall Briggs, President of the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ASCH), says she has also had good success over the years with hypnosis for weight loss with her clients, but concurs that the one size fits all treatment is not a good one. “Different approaches work for different clients,” she says.
