Virtual Gastric Band

The LAP BAND® procedure was approved by my insurance, but I just did not want to go through with it. I needed to do something to reduce my weight and the virtual gastric band hypnosis sounded more like something I could live with. I am eating much smaller portions and feeling so much better. My only problem is my clothes are too big so I need to go shopping.

After seeing the information on ABC about the hypnotic version of LAP BAND® surgery, I had to find someone who was doing that. I am glad you were here in the local area. I am losing 2-3 lbs a week so it won't be much longer until I achieve my goal. Thank you!

Paul McKenna is a UK Hypnotist who discusses what he calls the Hypnotic Gastric Band on the Dr. Oz Show. Find out more about this exciting way to lose weight and keep it off. Gastric Band Hypnosis, LAP-BAND® surgery is different.

Gastric Band Hypnosis is available on Skype

OK, so you probably saw Paul McKenna on Dr Oz talking about his Hypnotic Gastric Band process, and you are wondering how you can make this work for you.

I have found that while CDs can be effective for a few people, most people require one on one hypnosis, at least initially, in order to be successful with any hypnosis weight loss program.

My Name is Mark V Johnson and I am Second Generation Hypnotherapist from Dallas, Texas. My father was a hypnotherapist and a Bariatric Physician, that's medical weight control. He served as President and Chairman of the Board of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, but he never endorsed the use of surgery for weight loss. Although I am not a doctor, I am following in his footsteps as a hypnotherapist and have had a great deal of success working with weight loss clients using Gastric Band Hypnosis.

I do not offer recordings because they do not allow the client to get the the root cause of their problem in terms of weight control, they are typically generic in nature, a one size fits all approach. But we are all unique individuals and require individual attention, and that can only be accomplished with one on one contact either in my office in Dallas, Texas or online via Skype. Read on to find out more about Gastric Band Hypnosis, and find out how you can reduce your weight and make it a permanent reduction in your weight with Hypnosis.

Second Generation Hypnotherapist in Dallas, Texas Now Offering Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis a LAP-BAND® alternative. This is available in my Dallas Texas office as well as over Skype.


Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis involves using powerful hypnotic techniques that include suggestion and visualization. A qualified Hypnotherapist will work with you to reproduce all the physical benefits of LAP-BAND® surgery just as though you had been through the actual surgical procedure. When this impression is presented to the subconscious mind, it cannot tell the difference between the imaginary surgery and the real LAP-BAND® surgery, so the subconscious mind accepts the impression as reality, and allows the procedure to work as if you had been through the actual LAP-BAND® surgical procedure. This is why hypnosis works, because the subconscious mind is unable to tell the difference between a vivid mental impression and reality, so it accepts the impression as reality and then follows through to make the desired changes reality.

After your Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis session you will really believe and feel as though you have undergone the actual LAP-BAND® operation, though this will have been accomplished without any of the pain, discomfort or health risks associated with surgical intervention.

Once you have experienced Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis just like with LAP-BAND® surgery, you will find that you can comfortably eat smaller portions of food, resulting in smaller meals, but you will find that larger meals will be uncomfortable to you. This is the same experience that people who have been through the LAP-BAND® surgical procedure report. In addition, if you ignore the subconscious message that tells you that you have had enough to eat, you may notice discomfort or even feel sick to your stomach.

After 4 to 6 weeks, it is a good idea to return for a follow up session so that adjustments can be made to the Virtual Gastric Band, just as the doctor would do if you had been through the actual surgical procedure. The band can be tightened to enhance weight loss, or loosened to slow down the weight loss, depending on your progress.

It is important to understand that this is not a magic bullet, it takes determination to achieve your weight loss goals, but my clients have discovered that it is much easier to do so with the help of powerful hypnotic techniques, combined with Gastric Band Hypnosis. People who decide to work with my over Skype have also found that this process is very beneficial in terms of reducing their weight. I have been working over Skype with pre-op hypnosis in order to help people reduce the anxiety associated with various surgical procedures, hypnosis for stress and anxiety and now Gastric Band Hypnosis clients have found that Skype is a powerful alternative to allow them to achieve their weight loss goals.

There are potential side effects to the actual LAP-BAND® surgical procedure, so it is important to consider these well-documented side effects. Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis side steps LAP-BAND® side effects and provides additional benefits.

Potential Side Effects of LAP-BAND® Surgery

  • Vomiting & nausea are common for patients who undergo this surgery
  • Patients can no longer eat a large meal, which can result in depression for some while others may begin to feel socially isolated due to the surgery
  • Infections are always a risk when as a result of surgery
  • Diarrhea is a common side effect of this procedure
  • Some patients experience fainting due to not getting enough nutrition as they struggle to eat as much as they did before
  • Constipation
  • Reactions to the anesthesia

Benefits and Advantages of Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

  • No anesthesia required
  • No recovery from invasive surgery
  • Negative emotions are handled properly with Hypnosis
  • Experience comfort without need for comfort foods
  • You eat more slowly so you know when you are full
  • You will feel better about yourself

I will want to speak with you when you are ready to schedule your initial appointment, but I am sure you have questions about how this all works.

I offer a variety of sessions and the most popular ones are Hypnosis Weight Loss and Stop Smoking Hypnosis. These days I am seeing more people for weight loss, and the majority of those people decide to work with the Gastric Band Hypnosis Program.

How Does It Work?

First it is important to understand that everyone does not qualify for the Gastric Band Hypnosis Program. The first thing I ask people on the phone is how much weight they want to lose. You need to be at least 40-50 pounds overweight to qualify for Gastric Band Hypnosis, LAP-BAND® surgery requires that you be at least 100 pounds overweight. One client was told by the doctor that she needed to gain 20 pounds to qualify for the surgery. It is also important that you really do want to lose the weight for yourself, some people are just following the suggestion of their doctor and just are not motivated to reduce their weight. So, the first thing I ask people when I speak with them is how much weight they would like to lose.

The sessions are available in my office in Dallas, Texas as well as over Skype, and they typically last about 1.5-2 hours, though the first session may run a little longer.

We start out by talking, and this is very important, as it provides me with the ability to create a session for you and not a generic cookie-cutter session. This is important because it will provide us with the opportunity to deal with your problems in terms of weight gain and weight reduction. We'll discuss your meals, what you eat, how much you eat and also other times you eat. Many people eat for a variety of reasons, and a lot of those reasons is invalid. The only reason you need to eat is to provide fuel for your body, yet people eat out of boredom, when they are sad, when they are happy, to reward themselves, and the list goes on and on.

With this program, our goal is to change your eating habits so that you become a conscious eater and only eat to supply fuel for your body. All of these triggers that prompt you to eat are stored within a part of your mind called the subconscious mind. They are programs, like computer programs, and they cannot think or judge or analyze, they only react. You see part of what I just described is the basis of how the subconscious mind works. The subconscious mind is like a recorder and a playback device. It records information and then it plays it back. So when smoker is stressed, the 'I am a Smoker' program says, have a cigarette. People who eat for the wrong reasons will often eat because of negative or even positive emotions. Many people eat comfort foods, to help them feel better. Of course this does not work, although it may feel as though it does while you are eating, but after you are finished, your problems are still there.

With hypnosis we can access the subconscious mind and make changes to these programs, so that you no longer react by reaching for the foods you know you should not be having. I stress to everyone that there is more to reducing your weight than the Gastric Band Hypnosis session. I make sure my clients understand that Gastric Band Hypnosis is a powerful reinforcement to their weight loss program and not a magic bullet.

Why Are There Multiple Sessions?

Every time you enter into hypnosis, you go deeper than the time before. By having multiple sessions before the actual Gastric Band Hypnosis session you are able to learn to go deeper and deeper into hypnosis. Dave Elamn, a well known Hypnosis instructor from the 1950's and 1960's, who by the way was one of my father's hypnosis instructors, determined that it is true that each time you go into hypnosis you do go deeper than the time before. So the multiple sessions help you to be able to go so deep that by the time we get to the surgery session, which is session 4, you will be so deep that you will actually believe you experienced the actual Gastric Band Surgery. The subconscious mind, since it is unable to judge, cannot tell the difference between something that is imagined and something that actually happened, so it accepts the fact that you have actually had the Gastric Band Surgery.

In addition to learning to go deeper into hypnosis, the first 3 sessions allow us to begin working on your eating habits. This include reducing your portions, working on the quality of food you eat, and discovering the root cause of your emotional eating. While we prepare for the Gastric Band Hypnosis session, we work on producing positive changes to your eating habits, so that by the time we get to the 4th session you may find that you have reduced your weight by 5-8 pounds, which is the average.

OK, But How Much Does It Cost?

I offer several different multiple session packages for Gastric Band Hypnosis, including a 4 session package and a 5 session package, and the rates are the same for a live session in my office and a skype/phone session. The 5 session package includes one follow up session after the Gastric Band Hypnosis session. Additional sessions are available for those who need them at the same per session price.

Let me start by saying the fee for an individual session in my office is $250.

Total Sessions Package Price Payments Price/Session YOU SAVE

In addition to the multiple session discount, you have the option to pay 1/2 at the first session and 1/2 at the third session, though the best price is available when you pay for 5 sessions in full.

Multiple Payments:

For the 5 session package - $500 is due at the first & third sessions

For the 4 session package - $400 is due at the first & third sessions

When making multiple payments, you are not obligated to continue after the first 2 sessions, though it is extremely rare for anyone not to continue.

What Do I Do Next?

If you got this far, then it is time to take action, and there are several choices at this point. Of course you could do nothing, but one of my teachers has a saying about that, "If you do nothing, nothing is going to happen, if you do something, something might happen, The Future is Yours, Do Something About It!"
That last part is the title of one of his books, "The Future is Yours, Do Something About It!" The author of that book is Raymon Grace.
