There is the option of having gastric band surgery, which is a major operation and carries the risk of serious consequences. Privately, the surgery costs around £10,000. However, hypnotherapists have developed an alternative in the form of a virtual gastric band, which convinces your subconscious mind that you have had a gastric band surgery.
The virtual gastric band procedure takes part over four sessions. This involves the subconscious mind believing it has actually had the operation. Research carried out in England with 25 participants discovered that they had lost over 14 stone between them in only three weeks, with all but one reporting a change in their eating pattern.
So why take the risk of major surgery, when you can have a virtual gastric band in Edinburgh and get to the weight you want to be at. Contact us now for more details.
