About GMBand

Our friendly and relaxing specialist clinic is based in Spain, which can be easily accessed by a flight to Malaga airport and then a very short journey via a taxi or train to Fuengirola. Through four intense sessions, we will provide a non-surgical and permanent weight loss solution that truly works. You will be taken on a journey and we’ll work to help change your mindset and help you to look at food differently.

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.

If you’ve answered yes, GMBand are here to help you transform your mindset around food into a healthy and positive one, they will Psychologically press the reset button around you’re eating, enabling you to lose weight and maintain the weight loss for years to come.

The treatment has transformed the lives of hundreds of men and women around the world and all walks of life.

Customer Reviews

You can see some of our success stories from previous client's below.

I'm 27 and am currently working and living in Germany. Like many I have been overweight all my life, in fact I can scarcely remember a time when I wasn't larger than the others… to add to that I can scarcely remember a time when I ever lost any weight either in fact the trend only seemed to go one way and that was upwards, all of those factors are what you may call a combination for perpetual obesity that resulted in 16.11 stone and at least 21 years spent being unhappy because of it. I could write a novel on how obesity affected every part of my life, and made me so unhappy that it's only now looking back that I realise how bad it really was.

Sarah

Hi both, I hope you are well. I can't believe it's two months ago that I came to Spain...

Mind you it's cold and wet today and definitely feeling wintery with the cold wind. I hear you have been having lovely weather in Spain (or so the internet says). Glad to hear you have been busy. It's so amazing what you do – undergoing your Gastric Mind Band therapy really has changed my life for the better.

I can't believe how organised I am with regards to food again... I have most days planned and usually do my main shops at the weekend with ad hoc shops midweek.

Louise

Dear Martin and Marion, I thought I would write to you both to record my experience with the recent course of treatment at Gastric Mind Band and its effect.

As you know, we had a number of discussions over several months as I needed to be sure of my decision – at every step you were assuring and sympathetic to my need to reduce my weight.

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.

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.

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.

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!
