Lose Weight and Keep it Off: Virtual Gastric Band and Acupuncture

You have been on a diet on and off. You have even lost a lot of weight by going to a weight loss clinic, and you've gained it right back.

You are sick of this yo-yo dieting. You want to be able to enjoy food instead of being obsessed with your weight.

You want to be able to look yourself in the mirror and smile.

What is Preventing You from Achieving That ALREADY???

“I have no idea. I don’t even like eating those food. "
“I don’t have strong will power.”
“I over-eat when I am bored, stressed out, or when I feel like rewarding myself.”

Weight Loss and Hypnosis

Why Your Diets Haven’t Worked

If you have tried diets or hypnosis before for this problem you will be surprised at how different and effective our program is. Other programs may address eating habits, exercise, etc., but they don't address the emotions and the habits that makes you overeat or not exercising. So they may work for a while, but sooner or later, those undealt emotions and habits kick in and you gain those weight right back.

What's in the Way between You and a Healthier and Better Looking You?

Your Subconscious Programming that makes you eat when you are not hungry, finish a bag of French fries without even noticing what you are doing, and dread exercising.

Feel Bad = Eat More, Exercise Less

Feel Good = Eat More, Exercise Less

What if we could release the automatic response, the unconscious eating?

What if the urge/need/desire to over-eat is gone?

Our Individulized Weight Loss Program: Lose the Weight and Keep It off.

Our program is only 4 to 6 sessions in most cases. Using virtual gastric band (as seen on BBC and CNN), your eating habit is changed. Using chinese medicine (acupuncture and/or herbs), we change the health of your digestive system, so that your body is transforming food into energy and nutrition, rather than storing it as fat.

Research shows hypnosis for weight loss really works:

Kirsch, Irving (1996). Hypnotic enhancement of cognitive-behavioral weight loss treatments--Another meta-reanalysis. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 64 (3), 517-519.

In this meta-analysis, (which is when researchers look across multiple studies), the results of other studies were confirmed. In the studies of hypnosis versus no hypnosis the average short term weight loss was 6 pounds for those not using hypnosis and 11.83 pounds with hypnosis.

Even more importantly, over the long term the average weight loss without hypnosis remained at 6 pounds, but with hypnosis it jumped to 14.88 pounds -- indicating again that the effects of hypnosis seem to continue over time.


"Originally, I came to see you, because I was looking for a 'magic cure' to end my love/hate relationship with eating and my weight. I wanted to halt my ever increasing weight gain, lose weight and keep it off! ....I was skeptical about hypnosis.... ...I have tried many, many ways of losing weight over the years.

You and your program are wonderful. My entire mind set feels changed, not only about food, but about myself and my feelings in general.

I have been losing weight, surprisingly easily and comfortably.... What an incredible journey you have guided me through.

I am eternally grateful, maybe I did find the 'magic' I was looking for, after all.
