Gastric Band surgery is expensive, typically costing between £4000 & £9000 per client. Not only is this out of reach for many people classed as obese it is also a great burden on the NHS.
As an alternative, Gastric Band Hypnosis is cost effective and without the side effects associated with the surgical procedure. The key to the process is in changing clients behaviour and habits when it comes to over-eating. There is no point in 'fitting' a virtual gastric band if the underlying problems are not addressed. By using a combination of Cognitive Behaviour techniques and visualisation it is possible to address the emotional and psychological reasons why a client over-eats. Once this is dealt with, we will move on to the 'fitting' of the gastric band.
