VGB = The Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnosis Program

"First we take the weight off your mind, then your mind takes the weight off your body"

Andrew Hardwick


Over a decade ago, with the rise of the global obesity epidemic, surgeons created a way to reduce the usable size of the stomach, by the surgical implantation of a band near the top of the stomach. This was referred to as The Gastric Band, or The Lap Band. The reduced size of the stomach enables only small meals to be eaten, thus promoting weight loss. 


Unfortunately, not everyone is suitable for the surgical gastric band procedure, and the costs associated with it. 


Then, along came a wonderful idea from British Hypnotherapist Sheila Granger. Why not let the mind act "as if" the body has a gastric band in place, using hypnosis? And so was born the Virtual Gastric Band.

Now, the Virtual Gastric Band is here in New Zealand, and I have been trained to use it by Sheila Granger herself. See for yourself my registration on Sheila's list of VGB Practitioners

Sheila developed a 4 stage Virtual Gastric Band process of

  • Step 1 - Operation Day - Using deep hypnosis we create the illusion that you have had an operation on your stomach, to reduce the amount of food you can consume

  • Step 2 - Three Small Meals - Using deep hypnosis we focus on getting the whole of your mind to commit to a new habit of eating only three small meals a day

  • Step 3 - Using deep hypnosis we help you visualise possible futures, and to see yourself as the person you choose to be

  • Step 4 - Tightening The Band - Using deep hypnosis we revisit the operation on your stomach, to tighten the band and give you motivation to continue your journey
