Gentle therapy for not so gentle lifestyles

This form of Virtual Gastric Band Programme, as pioneered by Sheila Granger is proving so successful that she has trained hundreds of therapists worldwide.  It is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results.

The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake and that there is no need for more food.

It is most definitely NOT A DIET - we know that diets only work in the short term. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want but will enable you to be happier with smaller portions. Because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues leaving you with a long term solution to your weight problems.

The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach and may achieve the same result but the Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment.

The most important thing about the Virtual Gastric Band in comparison to surgery is that it deals with the issues in a person’s mind and their relationship with food. Having a foreign body inside your stomach simply does not address the psychological factors.

Recent statistics on Obesity show hospital admissions due to obesity related problems increased from 261 in 2001 to 8,807 in 2011. Unfortunately this is just the tip of the iceberg where obesity is concerned. So many people are now struggling with the physical restrictions of their weight and associated medical problems that they are living unfulfilled lives.
