What is the Hypno-Band?


The Hypno-Band Virtual Gastric 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!

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 it is possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method have drawbacks however. It is very costly, typically costing between £4,000 and £6,000, 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 accept that your stomach is smaller and you will listen to the signals your body sends telling you that you are full… You will eat smaller portions and feel full so much more easily as a result. The Hypno-Band system as delivered by lead practitioner Russell Hoyles is tailored to you and your needs. Emphasis on thought patterns and habitual behaviour leads to life changing results!

How does it work?
Over five sessions I take you through the process of change; changing the way you think and behave around food and changing the way you physically feel so that you instinctively eat less. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind can accept that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food and as a consequence you lose weight. The ‘Hypno Band’ concept which suggests to your mind that a gastric band is in place is just part of this process. Hypnotherapy, Mind Management techniques, Life Coaching and Counselling are used to help you achieve your ideal weight – and stay there! Each session in the Hypno-Band system lasts for one hour beginning the process with an initial consultation during which your needs are assessed and the programme is tailored for you.

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

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 hypnotherapist’s 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 and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. This applies if you wish to lose a lot of weight or just a few pounds. 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 (including the initial consultation) over a period determined in the free initial consultation (usually over 7/8 weeks), but this is flexible and at your convenience.

If you have interest in the programme please do contact me. I will be happy to answer your queries. Finally please be assured – If you are committed to changing your life, and to losing weight in a way that will see you remain thinner and fitter in the long term, then this is the programme for you!
