September 28, 2010

A new weight loss technique uses the hypnosis. It's called gastric mind band. The intensive four-day program includes behavior therapy to help patients learn to resist temptation. The process culminates in the gastric band hypnosis session.

Marianne Zeger says she lost 120 pounds in 10 months using this technique.

"We create smells into the room and have background noises, because the more sense that are involved in the whole process, the stronger the suggestions is," said Zeger.

The gastric mind band clinic in Europe has been so successful the therapy will soon be offered at a facility in New York. It costs about $3,000 dollars.
