The worlds no.1 Virtual Gastric band Hypnotherapy system "Hypno-band" at the Maldon Hypnotherapy Clinic.
As seen on ITV1's GMTV and Channel 4's Embarrassing bodies and in the Daily Mail 2010 & 2009 articles.
What is the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system?
How's Hypno-band work?
Hypno-band is a 5 session course combining Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques that helps you understand, and change your eating habits.
What's Hypno-band XL*?
Hypno-band XL is quite literally Hypno-band with extras (*only available at Maldon Hypnotherapy Clinic)! Three extra sessions of managing your thinking from the changing limiting beliefs course are fed into the normal Hypno-band 5 session weight loss system. This super effective 8 session course deals with many common issues all connecting to long term weight problems such as low self esteem, the fear of being judged, depression, anxiety etc. It teaches you how to gain the control over your thinking (and therefore behaviours) like never before creating an internal rather than external locus of control. It allows you the insight into your badly managed thinking, anxiety triggers, personality, thinking style etc. and teaches you how to methodically undo old inground behaviours and attitudes to rewire any unhelpful/negative thinking so you rebuild your self esteem, supercharge your self belief and develop internal control that is so often lacking in those with significant weight problems (alongside no self belief, negative thinking, depression, low confidence, no will power etc.) Basically its Hypno-band plus an MOT and 60,000 mile service for your brain, so you can create all the health, happiness, weight loss and success you really want!
Does the Hypnoband involve surgery?
No! the HYPNO-BAND system is a behaviour changing system using the techniques of hypnotherapy and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) to affect you physically via your powerful subconscious and conscious mind - so is totally physically non-invasive. Additional bonuses of Hypno-band over surgical gastric bands include avoiding painful rehab, time off work, dangerous side affects, risk from complications, huge expence etc. and the whole process is actually deeply relaxing, pleasurable and entirely safe.
Am I suitable for the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system?
Yes if you are over-weight and REALLY WANT and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. Your initial session determines your suitability for the Hypno-band or if another therapy is more appropriate (Hypnoanalysis, or other tailored weight loss suggestion therapy). Hypno-band is not suitable if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications that are making you put on weight. As a quick guide you are likely to be suitable if:
- You've a BMI over 25 (see BMI calculater below)
- You are 18 or over you've tried all other conventional methods of weight loss, such as exercise and diet, but have failed to lose and/or keep off any significant amount of weight
- You don't have any medical or physiological reasons for not having gastric band hypnotherapy (for example an untreated/unstable thyroid problem etc.)
- You understand the long-term commitment to having a gastric band hypnotherapy i.e. you continue to reduce your food intake and maintain a regular exercise regime
- You are not pregnant
Will Hypno-band work for me?
Yes, if you are seriously committed to becoming slimmer, healthier, and fitter Hypno-band will work for you. As with all behavioural change, you have to give yourself permission to succeed and after that the key to success is still YOU! NO weight loss efforts will work unless you are committed to losing weight (just like with an actual gastric band - you can learn to eat round the stapled stomach/band operation if you really wanted to - doh!). 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 as the HYPNO-BAND system provides you with the tools and psychological ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.
Is Hypno-band guaranteed to work?
Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees. 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. It is YOU that holds the key and drive to losing weight, the Hypno-band just helps you like no other weight loss system. No system will work if you are not 100% committed. The mind is a very powerful instrument and by using the HYPNO-BAND system you will have the tools and psychological power to change your eating habits.
FACT: The only way to lose weight whether that be 2lbs or 6stone is to eat less than you use up! The HYPNO-BAND system helps you to change behaviour and lifestyle so you can lose weight and stay that way!
Check your BMI here to indicate your health risks.
BMI 18 - 25 = Normal; BMI 25 - 30 =Overweight; BMI between 30 - 40 = Obese; BMI over 40 = Morbidly Obese
It's not just that obesity shortens life expectancy due to being responsible for Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, strokes, heart attacks, cancers, osteoarthritis etc. it often affects day to day movement, reduces sleep quality, lowers self esteem, limits opportunities even in a politically correct world and can attract disrespect, insults and judgment from others, amongst other problems.
HYPNO-BAND system costs.
The HYPNO-BAND Weight Loss System is extremely cost effective compared to other methods. Gastric Band surgery can cost thousands of pounds, even regular slimming club visits/books/diet drinks/shakes/detox packs add up over time. The standard 5 session HYPNO-BAND course only costs £395 - immediatly saving you money from the start on your weekly food bills as you eat less, less often, and gain so much more life as you delight in losing weight! It pays for itself over and over and over in so many ways. A couples course is £695 (saving £95). Hypnoband XL an 8 session course is £595.
What do you get for your £395 fee? The HYPNO-BAND system comprises a series of one hour sessions plus two CD which you use for reinforcement and a treatment support pack. A full dietry and medical history will be taken and an initial assessment done during the first session. Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation and calmness which results from being hypnotized. We will also begin your journey to losing weight. In the second session you will encounter the HYPNO-BAND and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted. In subsequent sessions the HYPNO-BAND virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted. In any later sessions the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating. Following the sessions you should use your CDs to back-up and reinforce the work you have done. Typically 5 sessions are required.
