The Gastric Band Now Possible Without The Surgery

Fuengirola, Spain (PressExposure) July 19, 2008 -- Now it is possible to have all the benefits offered by the fitting of a traditional Gastric Band without the costs or risks.

Imagine an overweight person visiting a clinic, where, after an in-depth conversation, they are gently taken through a therapeutic process, which included guided imagery and visualisation, and then waking up afterwards completely convinced in their own mind that they had just undergone a surgical procedure under general anesthetic.

Their imagined operation involved the fitting of a Gastric Band around their stomach. They are certain they can remember things like the 'clinical smell' of the operating theatre, and the unusual sounds of the medical equipment: in fact they are so convinced that they feel the need to touch their stomach, just to be sure! Was it really just a dream?

The Gastric Mind Band therapy has been developed at a small British CBT and hypnotherapy clinic in southern Spain, the team have spent the last twelve months fine-tuning the treatment and are now working with clients from a number of UK magazines who are monitoring its effect.

The development of the Gastric mind Band (GmB) therapy originated from a brief conversation with a client, who said, "I just know that if I had a Gastric Band fitted like my neighbour the weight would drop off me, couldn't you just hypnotise me and make me believe that I had undergone the procedure and be done with it." An interesting idea! Hypnotherapy alone proved not to be the solution, but over the following twelve months a possibly unique therapy was developed, cleverly combining Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, NLP, Hypnotherapy and guided imagery, and the client's wish was granted!

The therapy has it's own web site at The treatment takes place over five sessions, each time the client leaves feeling that his or her stomach has shrunk a little, at the final session the band is fitted, the client returns for an extra session after 28 days to have the band adjusted to enable the desired weight loss to be safely achieved.

The Gastric mind Band treatment was developed at the Elite Clinic in Spain, over recent years the clinic has earned an enviable reputation across Europe for the treating of a wide range of disorders, especially addictions. Since late 2006, however, an ever increasing amount of time has been invested in the research and trialing of the GmB therapy.The clinic is now establishing a reputation for itself as a specialist treatment centre in the field of cognitive approaches to weight loss and weight management, by offering its own GmB therapy.
