Obesity can affect sexual intimacy and relationships – ARTICLE

A cornerstone of our lives, some would argue the most important part of our lives as humans, is our relationship to other humans.  While not everybody enjoys monogamy, many people do.  But body image, and obesity can turn the very thing that should be the most positive and supporting element of our personal lives, into a burden. 

Body image, sex and intimacy: not easy things to talk about in a relationship, when it’s a problem.  Rather than broaching the subject, couples avoid hard conversations making intimacy difficult.

All different kinds of issues can trip up relationships, so if there are issues with obesity, it would be nice to get those out of the way, and hypnosis can help.  This story that appeared on NPR highlighted the frustration encountered by several couples because of one or both partners’ body image and obesity issues.  One of the interviewees wanted to do something about her weight, and make it less of an issue, and actually underwent Bariatric surgery.

That can be a solution.  But a less invasive and less expensive option is Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy.  The beauty of Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy, is that the underlying emotional issues that may be causing a persons weight gain, and body image issues, can also be addressed through hypnotherapy.  So a patient can actually achieve much longer lasting effects, with less risk. 

If you or anybody you know feel that you have hit a wall in a relationship, and believe that a weight issue may be a larger part of the problem (or perhaps you want to be in a relationship, and feel that obesity issues are holding you back), definitely contact me to discuss the Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy process, and how it could help you. 

I am having a lot of success with Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy via Skype skype logo, so Skype sessions can also be scheduled, if distance is an issue.
