Using Hypnosis, the sensation of a smaller stomach offers similar results to a physical gastric band inserted by laparoscopic surgery, commonly called a lap band, with none of the negative side-effects.
Online PR News – 01-February-2011 – – The Hypno-Band™, an innovative weight-loss program using hypnosis as a comparable alternative to gastric bypass or lap band surgery, is making its San Diego debut at the Edwards Hypnotherapy Clinic in Mission Valley, this month.
Re-programming her clients to use their subconscious mind to control their appetite and shift eating patterns, Certified Master Hypnotherapist Diane Edwards works with patients to achieve their desired weight loss without the cost, side effects and problems associated with surgery.
“The mind is powerful,” said Edwards, developer of Edwards Mental Band program and www.HypnoBandSanDiego.com. “What you think becomes real for you! The sensation of a smaller stomach suggested through hypnosis really feels like a surgically inserted lap-band.”
Edwards’ tested hypnosis program uses a mental gastric band and the power of the sub-conscious mind to offer a lower risk, lower-cost option for overweight persons of all sizes, compared to surgery.
Similar programs done in England and Spain confirm that the results of a mental gastric band parallels results from invasive surgery.
While the appetite and metabolic effects of the Mental Band are comparable to a surgically-implanted gastric band, other aspects of the program differ substantially.
“My program offers great results because it includes personal support, nutritional education, and multiple hypnosis sessions to change sub-conscious food habits, and deal with the underlying emotional issues. These features are unique to my program and lacking in the standard gastric band surgery,” says Edwards.
Edwards’ program, which includes weekly hypnosis sessions and re-enforcement CDs costs a fraction of the $15-$30,000 charged for surgical lap band procedures.
Hypnosis was approved by the American Medical Association in 1958 for use in medical and dental practice. It is now commonly used in hospitals and burn centers to accelerate healing and reduce or eliminate pain.

About Hypno-Band San Diego
Developed by Certified Master Hypnotherapist Diane Edwards, the Hypno-Band is an alternative option for individuals looking to have weight-loss surgery. The process of combining hypnosis with the power of suggestion makes the mind believe that he or she had actually undergone a Gastric Band operation. The Hypno-Band creates the sensation of one’s stomach constricting, similar to the physical process of a surgical lap band procedure. Since your sub-conscious mind regulates all of your body processes, it produces the sensation of constriction on your stomach. You feel satisfied with smaller quantities of food, you eat less and you easily make better food choices. The result is that you steadily lose excess weight, reach your healthy weight loss goal, and continue to easily maintain a balanced diet, with no effort, struggle or deprivation.
