Hypnoband: Weight Loss System

If, for some reason, you are desperate to lose weight but Analytical Therapy and changing your "whole life for the better" is not possible for you, then going on to the Hypnoband Weight Loss System can help lose you weight.

It is a revolutionary new weight loss system designed for those who have a high Body Mass Index ( B.M.I.)

Jon Hicks, Dip Hyp, MIAEBP BIH - is the Licensed Practitioner For Chelmsford, Braintree and Great Dunmow, as well as operating in Bishops Stortford.

This new system will help you lose that excess weight and keep it off. Wouldn't it be nice to have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgey and the cost? Well now you can! By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted. You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band is a long-term solution to your weight problems for those people who would be unable to get through Hypno-Analysis, or choose not to go through that route of therapy. Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees but even a surgeon cannot guarantee that an actual Gastric Band will work. However the virtual gastric band has been proven to be effective in aiding significant weight loss. But it should always be remembered it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight.

A recent newspaper report stated "A mum lost three stone in FIVE MONTHS after being hypnotised into believing she had a gastric band". The Hypno-Band could change your life for-ever. Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of pounds. Gastric Band surgery is not for everyone. Usually the surgery is only carried out on people classified as "clinically obese" and with a high Body Mass Index (BMI). A surgical Gastric Band works by reducing the size of the stomach and therefore you eat smaller portions and feel full. Through this method is is possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method does have drawbacks however. It is very costly, typically costing £4000 to £6000 and of course you will need to go through a surgical procedure.

What if you could have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and cost? Well now you can! By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted. You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band system is a long term solution to your weight problems. Lose Weight and keep it off. This therapy also costs just £595 for the five sessions including all CD's.

Frequently asked questions:

So how does it work?
Over five sessions (including the Pre-Talk Consultation) Jon takes you through the process of having a gastric band fitted in your mind. By using powerful suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight. The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight - and stay there! Each session in the Hypno-Band system lasts for one hour and before beginning the process a full assessment will be carried out.

Does it involve surgery?
No! the HYPNO-BAND system is a non-invasive behaviour changing method using the techniques of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.

Does it hurt?
On the contrary. The HYPNO-BAND procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.
Are there side effects? No. There are no side effects associated with undergoing this procedure.

So it's safe?
Yes! the HYPNO-BAND system is perfectly safe.

Will I be under the hypnotherapists control?
Never. No hypnotherapist can make you do anything you do not want to do nor make you behave in a way you would not normally behave.

Am I suitable for the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system?
If you are over-weight, with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 25 + and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications.

Will it work for me?
The key to success is YOU! No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. You must be prepared to change your eating habits and life-style. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The HYPNO-BAND system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.

How long does it take?
The whole process takes five one hour sessions. Sessions are usually held weekly.
Your BMI (Body Mass Index)
Understanding your BMI (Body Mass Index) is an important part of your weight loss program - using the following tool you can work out your current BMI;

Why do you carry out a five session programme where other therapists often use four Sessions?
I am an experienced practitioner in a technique called Changing Limiting Beliefs and I feel that the incorporation of CLB into the sessions will further explain how your mind works. You will be taught to focus on "what you want to happen" in your life rather than fearing "what MIGHT happen" then you will be even more in control of not just your eating habits but also ANY emotional issues. This session would usually cost £75 on its own per session but I include it within my price for the Hypno-Band Surgery.

The Hypno Band Weight Loss System using Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Can Help you Lose Weight - based in Bishop`s Stortford.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have a more serious long term problem with your eating or perhaps you have an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia, then you would benefit most from a course of analytical hypnotherapy (hypnoanalysis). This type of therapy would provide you with all the benefits of hypnosis with suggestion therapy, whilst also helping you to fully resolve your issues with eating and self-image, leaving you free to enjoy a more stable and relaxed approach to eating and drinking. (For more info on hypnoanalysis click here.)

The Hypno-Band TM is the original complete Gastric Band Hypnotherapy system in the UK,Ireland,Australia and Canada. Beware of imitations. Note: the Hypno-Band is not in any way associated with Elite Clinics or Gastric Mind Band. Virtual Gastric Band is a trademark.
