Service Description

With the rise of a 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. ​ The 4 step Virtual Gastric Band process 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
