Over the years a lot of weight loss programs have come into the market. While a few have worked for some there are many others who still haven’t found the right weight loss programs that suits their requirements. However, the weight is now over as in the last couple of years a new method has been developed in Europe to address weight loss. This method is known as the virtual gastric band hypnosis which uses the patient’s mind rather than a knife to carry out a weight loss surgery. Though it might sound a bit confusing in the beginning reading further can make things clear as to how exactly this process works. The process is very new and only a very few people really know how they need to operate and make use of this method for weight loss.
People who practice this method of weight loss are known as hypnotist or hypnotherapist. They undergo training and learn properly the art of gastric band therapy. Most hypnotists require their patients undergo a formal training to ensure that they are in the same wavelength. However, experienced and well versed hypnotists can perform the process and use some form of visualization to help the patients undergo the process without any formal training. But where do people get these skills and training from? Is there any governing body that certifies such hypnotists for their skills?
There are many schools and institutions that help people learn this process and also act as a good place to try and improve over the already existing methods in gastric band programs. The thing about hypnotherapy for weight loss is that varies slightly from one person to the other. Developers who have come up with this method have methods that vary a bit from the other. Each one uses a different method to make the clients mind understand that a gastric band is being placed around the stomach. The claims of success rates and the performance rate of the program also varies from each hypnotist making it necessary for a client to research well about the process and practitioner before moving forward. This is important because the research lets the client get a brief understanding about the process involved and whether or not the process will work well.
A good hypnotist normally undergoes training for about 100-200 hours before practicing the method. A minimum of 100 clients is generally required to become proficient in this field and most experienced practitioners today have worked more than a 1000 clients making them highly skilled and proficient in the treatment. The fact that there are very little people who actually prefer this method makes it difficult for new practitioners to find clients and there have been many cases where hypnotists have not found 100 clients even after spending a year or two in the business. Furthermore clients are reluctant to try new practitioners in the market making it all the more difficult for them to grow.
It is therefore important for a hypnotist to have special training from a certified institution of good reputation as most clients today are looking for practitioners who have a certificate to prove the same. Additionally the chances of gaining a larger client base increases if the practitioner has worked assisting a well reputed hypnotist for sometime.
