About the founders Martin and Marion

Martin and Marion founded GMBand as they noticed a lack of surgical alternatives in the health industry that could help people to lose weight safely.

The process, which incorporates Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and incorporates a unique Virtual Reality Experience along with many other elements, produces incredible results at just a fraction of the cost of a surgical gastric band. Since it was established the , GMBand treatment has gone from strength to strength, appearing in national newspapers, magazines and lifestyle TV shows on both sides of the Atlantic. In the last 10 years, over 1,700 people have travelled from around the world to complete the Gastric Mind Band Permanent Weight Loss Treatment at the clinic in Spain. Each and every client has left the clinic passionate and determined to change their mindset with food, resulting in fantastic and sustainable weight loss for life.

Martin and Marion have completed over 8,000 hours of one to one therapy time and are the authors of two best-selling books <em>Gastric Mind Band</em> and <em>Pause Button Therapy no one is better positioned to help you achieve your weight loss goals</em>.
<h2>Is there surgery involved in a Gastric Mind Band?</h2>
There is absolutely no surgery involved with our Gastric Mind Band treatment whatsoever!

The Gastric Mind Band is a safe, effective, non-invasive and non-surgical alternative to surgical interventions. We incorporate the latest in Psychological advances and Neuroplasticity to ensure we are consistently delivering a unique and effective permanent weight loss solution.

As there is no surgery process, you won’t need to stay over, have stitches taken out or book time off work to recover. Instead, you can expect to carry out your average daily tasks almost instantly!

How successful is the Gastric Mind Band treatment?

Well, this is the big question!

Just like Gastric Band surgery, which has a 70 – 75% success rate, the Gastric Mind Band therapy does not provide a 100% solution. At GMBand, we strive to ensure our range hits 75%. The success of the treatment will depend on the person’s commitment and dedication to losing weight and maintaining the process when they leave the clinic. If you are prepared to follow our bespoke programmes and make a few positive lifestyle changes, there’s no reason why this treatment cannot transform your life.

Is the Gastric Mind Band treatment suitable for everyone?

For the alternative surgical gastric band, an individual must fit a number of medical criteria’s in order to be accepted as a suitable candidate, such as having a BMI of 40 or more, weighing more than 100lbs over your ideal body weight and proof that they have been struggling to achieve a healthy body weight over a certain period of time.

For Gastric Mind Band Therapy, the restrictions are much more flexible. For example, Gastric Mind Band Therapy can be used to help people who are on different stages of the spectrum – including people who are at the top of the BMI level to those just a little overweight rather than clinically obese. To put it simply, we are here to help people who have struggled to lose weight for a number of years and have tried a range of different diets with no success.

If you are suffering from a psychological eating disorder however, such as, bulimia or anorexia, then the standard Gastric Mind Band Therapy may need to be incorporated into a course of treatment at the clinic. We would recommend attending a course of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy sessions to help work through your issues and once completed, the team at GMBand will be happy to demonstrate how The Gastric Mind Band therapy will work for you.

Do you offer any ongoing support after the Gastric Mind Band treatment?

Once you have completed your Gastric Mind Band treatment, you will receive on-going support and aftercare, including complementary Skype sessions and maintaining regular contact through phone and email. Of course everything doesn’t stop once you leave the clinic! We will always be here ready to help at any time to ensure each and every client achieves their desired Goal Weight.

Where is the clinic based?

The GMBand clinic is based in Fuengirola on Spain’s Costa Del Sol; it is just twenty minutes from the airport. All treatments will take place at our specialist clinic in Spain, or if you cannot get to Spain, we can provide the same treatment in your home, or via Skype, maintaining consistent contact with the GMBand team.

How do I book my flights and accommodation?

There are up to 54 flights a day between the UK and Malaga Airport from various destinations in the UK, so getting to the clinic in Spain really could not be easier. Once you arrive at Malaga airport, getting to Fuengirola is simple – there’s a dedicated train service that runs directly from the airport terminal to Fuengirola. From there, it’s just a five minute walk from the station. Alternately you can take a Taxi.

There are literally hundreds of hotels to choose from in Fuengirola, situated on one of the longest promenades in Europe with guaranteed sunshine! There are too many to name, but the hotels we recommend that are just a few minutes away from the clinic Hotel las Rampas, Hotel Piramides and Hotel Yaramar. Fuengirola offers everything from Five Star Boutique to Budget Accommodation. To find out all of our hotel recommendations, please check out our recommended accommodation FAQ section.

The Gastric Mind Band Procedure

Session 1

The first of the four sessions is called the Conceptualisation session, which can last in excess of four hours. The aim of the first session is to get you to answer a number of deep psychological questions from the in house developed Forensic Questionnaire; it will help you develop a different perspective around your relationship with food. We will gather in-depth background information about your eating habits and past dieting attempts using this information to structure the remaining sessions. The first session will then end with your first introduction to hypnosis.

Session 2

The second session will focus on a variety of important aspects, such as the potential impact your weight is having on your health. You will be taken for a blood test and then we will use the Tanita Body Composition Analyser to establish your starting weight, body fat percentage and resting metabolic rate. We will then explain and educate you on a number of tips and techniques to help you feel more in control around food, and then the second session will end with a personalised hypnosis session which is recorded live for you to take home.

Session 3

Session three will be dedicated to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. We will use the data collected in the first two sessions to help introduce you to a new way of thinking about food, as well as sharing industry leading techniques to help you remember and use with your new eating habits. We have created the Pause Button Technique, which incorporates two tactile elements that can be uniquely used when clients feel tempted to eat something they know they don’t really need. Each client will be presented with these to take home once they have completed their final session.

Session 4

During the final session, the Gastric Mind Band will be “fitted”. We will have an in-depth talk about gastric band surgery and how it works, and we will show you a short video of one being fitted. This exclusive Visualisation/Virtual; Reality session will take you on a virtual journey from the hospital ward to the operating theatre, where you will experience the sights, smells and sounds of an operating room.

Before leaving the clinic, we will provide you with the GMBand comprehensive treatment manual which covers everything that has happened during your sessions at the clinic. You will be given a set of weight loss tools, and audio recordings of your sessions for you to repeat at home if required.

Our in-depth guide on how a Gastric Mind Band works can be found on our site with each step by step process in detail. We are here to answer any questions you may have regarding the Gastric Mind Band treatment process.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Gastric Mind Band?
    • A Gastric Mind Band is an effective and non-surgical therapy technique which gives you the illusion that you have had a gastric band fitted. More than that, the Gastric Mind Band treatment helps you to re-educate and understand food, teaching you how to overturn your weight loss woes with no guilt, rules, exercise plans or rigid calorie counting in sight.

  • How does a Gastric Mind Band work?
    • During the four intense sessions the Gastric Mind Band treatment performs a total Psychological Re-Set, which involves a combination of unique therapies which are conducted at a pace and style that suits each individual client. During the personal sessions, both Martin and Marion Shirran, the developers and founders will be involved from start to finish, helping to guide you through the treatment.

    • During the treatment at the clinic in Spain, you will be asked to make some short-term changes with your eating patterns to help retune your body’s natural reflexes. If you choose to undertake Gastric Mind Band therapy at home via Skype, the sessions provided will follow the exact same direction as our clinic-based treatments.

  • How much does a Gastric Mind Band cost?
    • A standard gastric band using surgery can set you back in the region of £4,500 to £9,500.

    • The Gastric Mind Band treatment starts at just £1,695, consisting of four non-invasive treatment sessions which can take place in our clinic in Spain or in the comfort of your own home. Not only is our gastric mind hypnosis service considerably less expensive than the surgical alternative, but it’s also safer with zero side effects and just as effective!
