What is a VIRTUAL Gastric Band? Is it surgery? Is it something else? How does it work? Is it right for me?
The Virtual Gastric Band is a Hypnosis technique that engages your imagination in the story of your pretend gastric band surgical experience. There is never any physical manifestation of surgery, no scars, no blood, and no recovery from surgery. There are no negative side effects of surgery because you have never had the surgery at all.
However, because our brains do not differentiate between reality and fiction, by experiencing the virtual experience we are able to imagine that it really did happen. Then behave ‘as if’ it did.
So we can have the behaviour without the pain and surgical risk involved. You learn to ‘hear’ your body’s cues for fullness and respond to them by ceasing to eat. You notice your comfortable feeling of satiety and stop eating automatically without stress or even thinking about it.
