 Hypno-Band : Weight Loss System

 Ron Thompson is a Licensed Practitioner of the Hypno-band Weight Loss System, he will help you lose that excess weight and keep it off. Wouldn't it be nice to have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and the cost? Well now you can! By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system.

You will eat smaller portions and feel fuller. The Hypno-Band is a long-term solution to your weight problems.

 Like any medical or therapeutic procedure, there can be no definite guarantees and even a surgeon cannot guarantee that a real actual Gastric Band will work, HOWEVER WE DO ACTUALLY ADDRESS THE REASONS WHY A PERSON IS OVERWEIGHT. The virtual gastric band has been proven to be effective in aiding significant weight loss. But it should always be remembered that it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight.

The Hypno-Band could change your life forever. Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of dollars!

Gastric Band surgery is not for everyone. Usually the surgery is only carried out on people classified as "clinically obese" and with a high Body Mass Index (BMI). A surgical Gastric Band works by reducing the size of the stomach and therefore you eat smaller portions and feel full. Through this method it is possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method does have drawbacks however. It is very costly, typically costing 8,000 to 12,000 dollars and of course you will need to go through a surgical procedure.



Frequently asked questions

So how does it work? Over 6 ,8 or 12   sessions I will take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight. The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioral techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight - and stay there! Each session in the Hypno-Band system lasts for one hour and before beginning the process a full assessment will be carried out. These sessions will ideally be scheduled to be completed within a two to three week period, but if necessary, this can be lengthened a little.
Does it involve surgery?  No! The Hypno-Band system is a non-invasive behavior changing method using the techniques of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Does it hurt? On the contrary, the Hypno-Band procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.
Are there side effects?

No. There are no side effects associated with undergoing this procedure. (Except losing weight of course!)

Is  it safe?

Yes! The Hypno-Band system is perfectly safe.
Will I be under the hypnotherapists control?

Never. No hypnotherapist can make you do anything you do not want to do nor make you behave in a way you would not normally behave.

Am I suitable for the Hypno-Band weight loss system?

If you are over-weight and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications.
Will it work for me? The key to success is YOU!   No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. You must be prepared to change your eating habits and life-style. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The Hypno-Band system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.
How long does it take? The whole process takes 6 one hour sessions. You can choose the number of follow up sessions, Usually I like to achieve this over two weeks with a few follow up weight loss hypnotherapy sessions for food choices and excurse if your able to, but this is flexible and at your convenience.


The Hypno-Band Weight Loss System using Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy can Help you Lose Weight for those who live in Nanaimo and the Vancouver Island area. .

The Hypno-Band TM is the original complete Gastric Band Hypnotherapy system developed in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada. Beware of imitations!

Why is Hypno-Band different from other systems being offered?

We are offering you a complete system that addresses the cause of overeating, binge eating, together we identify and deal with the underlying cause of being overweight, this is done over 6 sessions, you get support and guidance all the way, you get Hypno band recordings to use at home, you get pre and post-operative advice.


Hypno band Hypnotherapy

Hypno-Band is not a diet, it is a holistic system which addresses why you sabotage yourself, quite simply, we explore why and how you have failed in the past to either lose weight or keep it off and then I will help you to succeed, this is not just a hypnosis session, this is a complete Holistic well-being system to ensure you achieve your goals in a healthy way, make cravings a thing of the past, no more excuses, no more sabotage, no more failures due to emotional reasons or stress, this is a proven system that works.

Your BMI gives and indication of your health risks. A BMI between 18 and 25 is regarded as "Normal", between 25 and 30 is classed as "Overweight" and a BMI between 30 and 40 is in the "Obese" range. If you have a BMI over 40 you are classed as "Morbidly Obese." Not only can obesity affect life expectancy it can be responsible for conditions such as: cardiovascular disease, diabetes Type II, stroke, cancer, joint problems such as osteoarthritis and high blood pressure. Please note that Hypno-band weight loss system will not be used for anyone under 25 BMI,  if you are under 25 BMI then we have other ways to help you lose fat and weight, please contact me if this is your problem.

Hypnotherapy alone for large amounts of weight loss has had limited success, under the Hypno-band(R) system we use a special blend of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Guided Imagery, Hypnotherapy, NLP (Nero-Linguistic-Programming) as well as other Psychological Therapeutic methods to help a person achieve desired results, we also look at your lifestyle and see how active you presently are, we agree on activities that you can fit into your lifestyle and help you to become not only slimmer but fitter and healthier.

The HYPNO-BAND system with myself comprises of 6 or more  sessions. The first session is a double session. I spend an extra hour with you to ensure I have all the information I need to help you, this is a very important session as I need to take your personal history, medical history, as well as defining your goals, this session also is used to ascertain and deal with any limiting beliefs you may have towards your weight.

A initial hypnotherapy session which is made for you as an individual based on the initial consultation, Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation and calmness which results from having hypnotherapy. We will also begin your journey to losing weight; most people lose weight from the very first session, as we begin the journey in re- programming your mind and belief structure.

A CD is also given to you for home use between sessions.

Next session you will encounter the HYPNO-BAND and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted.

Following session the HYPNO-BAND virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted.

Fourth and final session the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating, also if you are losing weight too quickly we adjust the band, or, if your weight loss is slower than predicted we tighten the band to restrict the amount of food you can eat.Fhe Final Session, we either do a further adjustment to your band or we do a positive affirming session to help you to carry on with your journey of losing weight and becoming healthy.

What happens after the final session?

Some clients come to me for further adjustments, others come to me to assist them with new goals and direction, some clients just keep in contact by e - mail and update me on how well they are doing.

No more yo yo diets, no more excuses, no more sabotage...See what others are saying who made the choice to change .


Weight Loss Testimonials


Hi my name is Michelle J. I'm from Nanaimo B.C.. It's been 6 weeks since I've started with the Nanaimo Hypnotherapy Center and I've lost 24 pounds as of this morning. It's a great feeling, I've struggled a whole lot before coming here, and that phone call was the best call I ever made. I am healthier, happier, so much more energy, I am exercising almost on a regular basis, eating healthy all the time. I don't even think about what to eat, it just pretty much comes natural. I would highly recommend this to anyone who's had or struggled losing weight. My biggest problems which were eating late at night and sweets, I don't even miss any of that. I just feel fantastic. I highly recommend you call.




I have been coming to Nanaimo hypnotherapy  for almost two months and have already lost over 20 lbs. I have lost and gained weight before, but this process is different – I am not focused on the food, counting calories all the time. I enjoy eating healthy and want to exercise. I feel stronger and more confident in all areas of my life.




As of this writing, I have lost 50 lbs. I feel great, and I eat better and exercise regularly. I drink a lot of water and my outlook on life has changed. This has been a life altering experience. I highly recommend the Nanaimo Hypnotherapy Center.

David R. Comox B. C.


I have lost about 20 lbs. so far and look forward to losing more. It really is not difficult. I look forward to the hypnosis sessions each week and am convinced they really work. It also has a positive effect on my self-esteem and confidence.




Six weeks into the program, ( Hypnos-Band) I find that my weight is down, 6 inches from my stomach so far,  my clothes fit more comfortably, coffee consumption is down. Most important to me is that I began an exercise program that I have been putting off for years. Surprisingly, this all happened with no feeling of sacrifice. An added benefit is that I feel much more relaxed and I sleep better.

Carl  Vancouver BC


I came to hypnosis primarily for weight loss. I have lost 24 ½ lbs since starting, which I'm grateful for. Hypnosis has not only helped me with the weight loss, it has also helped with the stress issues that I have – I've learned to take things on a more even approach and it's made my life less stressful. The techniques of hypnosis are amazing.

Melody   Nanaimo


I have just completed 6 weeks of the Hypnos- Band weight loss program and have marveled at the way this has changed my whole attitude at weight loss. I do not feel deprived and am making healthy food choices most of the time without even thinking about it. My clothes are starting to get looser and I feel positive about my final goal.

Pam  Duncan  B. C.


I have noticed that after the first two sessions, I have been making better food choices, eating slightly less and a reduction in snacking after dinner. I continue to be hopeful about future results as I continue the program.
