Hello! Featured the GMB.

Non-Surgical Permanent Weight Loss Solution Helping people to successfully lose weight is a complex task, requiring a careful fusion of empirically proven interventions. It's a fact that each new client arrives at the clinic with their own, unique set of issues and problems, which have usually all played a part in them having developed an unhealthy relationship with food. As a result, each client requires, and receives, a completely personalised treatment plan. With the GMB treatment you don’t have to consciously limit what you eat to lose weight. By getting your mind and body working together and changing your relationship with food so you no longer want to overeat, weight loss is no longer a struggle, it almost becomes natural. That’s hugely liberating and that’s what the Gastric Mind Band® is all about. It delivers just what it says: Effective Weight Loss.

Our research has repeatedly shown that instigating change in a person, especially in the field of weight loss, is best achieved not by one approach alone, but by combining a number of different therapies and approaches.
