People frustrated with dieting may find other ways to feel lighter, such as carrying around helium balloons or immigrating to the moon. Lighten your celestial body's load with today's Groupon: for $99, you get two one-hour sessions of Virtual Gastric-Band hypnotherapy with Marc Carlin at The Hypnosis Center (a $598.50 value).
Certified hypnotherapist and weight-loss specialist Marc Carlin of The Hypnosis Center wields the power of suggestion and techniques backed by clinical experience to facilitate the shedding of excess pounds. The Virtual Gastric Band treatment is designed to convince the client's subconscious mind and nay-saying shoulder-angels that he or she has undergone gastric band surgery to reduce his or her stomach capacity. Over the course of two one-hour sessions, Marc verbally leads the patient through the virtual surgery, enhancing the storyline with props aimed at persuading the body to physically mimic the effects of the procedure. Thus, patrons trade fashion-backward hospital gowns and the risks of a real operating table for a relaxing rest in a dream-like state. The hypnotherapy process is also designed to educate participants on balanced dietary habits and uncover the emotional factors behind overeating, such as having been raised by a wild pack of animal crackers. Customers can view a brief video on Marc's innovative approach for more information.
