Virtual Gastric Band in Miami
This program is a combination of hypnotic suggestion techniques, NLP, and behavioral modification techniques that together support each of the techniques to achieve absolute performance.
Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy was established in 2010 as a treatment for obesity. It uses clinical hypnosis to replicate the effects of actual surgical gastric banding, but without the wide array of side effects that the surgery can bring about.
How Does The Virtual Gastric Band Work?
The Gastric Band Hypnosis technique works by convincing the patient, at an unconscious level, that a true gastric banding operation has been performed. The unconscious mind and body thereafter respond to food and hunger in the ways that the individual would expect (or be led to expect.) The simulated surgery patients who received the treatments have reported a profound reduction in stomach capacity and ability to tolerate heavy foods.
Our patients report that they lose the desire to eat (down to ~50% of their usual fare), and this lack of interest in food is not from the prohibition of food we like. This is not a restrictive diet plan, but a way to reduce cravings, anxiety, and obsession with certain foods.
How Long Does The Virtual Gastric Band Treatment Last?
The Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy treatments last for 6 sessions which you attend once every two weeks. During the first session, we will give an informative seminar that explains the guidelines of the technique, and discuss the difference between this and the adjustable surgical band. We will clarify doubts and give tips to start changing habits.
Additionally, as an exclusive service of A Solution for Beauty by Pierini, we apply a nutritional assessment test that gives results about a patient’s BMI, % fat, % water, and nutrition habits, allowing us to make a personalized and targeted plan specifically for the needs of each participant. During this session, a Virtual Lap Band is implanted and we provide two audios for listening each morning (15 minutes before getting up in the morning) and evening (at bedtime to help you sleep) for the Virtual Gastric Band treatment be continued even outside the office.
The next two Virtual Gastric Band sessions are reinforcements of the first.
The fourth Virtual Gastric Band session is a second implant that helps the person to reconcile with their slim figure. Why? As we begin to lose weight after having been long overweight or obese, the mind feels threatened and may stagnate in their purpose so that reconciliation is necessary. In this new implant, we change the audio in the morning and evening.
The last two Virtual Gastric Band sessions are reinforcement sessions once again so that patients can continue their healthy behaviors.
