CAROLINE Wilson can give you a gastric lap band, without any surgery.

Lap band surgery usually involves a procedure where an incision is made near the belly button and a silicon band is placed around the top part of the stomach, making the stomach feel fuller, quicker.

Ms Wilson says she can offer the same or better results without the need for invasive surgery.

Ms Wilson is a hypnotherapist-psychotherapist and her Rockhampton business Hypnoworxs has joined with Healthy Life and Ambitionz Health and Fitness to create a procedure that prepares the patient for a lifestyle change before undergoing hypnosis.

She said it was a great way for people dealing with weight issues to change their life.

“I personally have had a weight issue probably for 30 odd years,” Ms Wilson said.

“For a lot of people it ties up with their self worth.

“They might have lost the body weight but they haven’t changed their lifestyle, which is why we offer a holistic approach, treating the body, mind and soul.”

After three weeks preparation, Ms Wilson hypnotises her patients using a process complete with surgical noises and smells which she says convinces their subconscious mind they’ve had the surgery.

While they are completely aware of the exact procedure before and after the hypnosis, Ms Wilson says their subconscious mind is convinced they’ve had the surgery.

After this, patients are supported with a personal trainer and membership to the gym, to help them lose the weight and keep it off.

And if they aren’t happy with the results Ms Wilson says she can put them under again and “tweak” the lap band, making it tighter or looser.

So far in Rockhampton, she has had some great results.

“I had one gentleman who lost about 10kg in about three weeks and one lady lost 5kg in seven days,” Ms Wilson said.

Ms Wilson also uses hypnotherapy to cure people of various other habits and lifestyle choices including smoking, anxiety, eating disorders and sexual dysfunction.
