The history of Virtual Gastric Band Therapy.
Sheila Granger developed her Virtual Gastric Band hypnotherapy program to improve her clients prospects of experiencing significant weight loss using hypnotherapy.
Does this Virtual Gastric Band therapy work?
Trials in the UK have been extremely successful. In the first trial 24 of the 25 participants successfully lost weight with a combined weight loss of 88.9kg in 3 weeks, only one participant did not lose weight.
The average weight loss experienced with Virtual Gastric Band therapy is 1-2kg in the first week and .5-1kg in subsequent weeks. This is achieved without dieting and without any feelings of loss or deprivation. As a result of this success, Sheila is negotiating further trials with the National Health Service.
The BBC reported Sheila's work on their Look North program resulting in enormous interest in Virtual Gastric Band therapy.
