Losing Weight? Retrain Your Mind With The Revolutionary Virtual Gastric Band

 In Hypnotherapy

Teaching your mind to make your body feel fuller can be a significant step towards losing weight and feeling great!

By Marc Ponzi

Just as the surgically-placed laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (lap-band or A band) is designed to make you eat less and feel fuller, the Virtual Gastric Band can see the same results without the potential complications or side effects of expensive and invasive surgery and procedures.


World-renowned hypnotherapist Sheila Granger presents Moonee Ponds MindBody Health Centre’s Marc Ponzi with his Certified Practitioner certificate in Virtual Gastric Band therapy.

This fantastic weight loss program, which was pioneered by internationally renowned hypnotherapist Sheila Granger in the United Kingdom, is now available at the Moonee Ponds MindBody Health Centre with the Centre’s own Marc Ponzi offering its benefits for you to get well on your way to looking and feeling great!

Marc has had extensive training directly with Sheila Granger on the Virtual Gastric Band Procedures and is a Certified Virtual Gastric Band Practitioner Hypnotherapist.

The program works with clients who are struggling with weight loss, health related issues, sugar and food-type cravings, people who are experiencing issues with emotional eating or people who have tried various diets and found they have not worked for them.

The treatments are delivered in four easy sessions –

  • The participant will believe that they have undergone bariatric (lap band) surgery in the first session, with the impression that the stomach has been reduced to the size of a golf ball. In a Hypnotic trance, if the subconscious mind accepts that suggestion, it becomes a reality and the person will then limit their food intake.
  • This is followed by three further sessions which deal with the psychological triggers that drive a person to overeat. Feedback shows that the hypnotherapy is like ‘flicking a switch in the brain’ – allowing people to turn off the cravings and eat only until satisfied.

Marc can help clients make positive life changes to adopt a new set of habits that are realistic, helping the client become confident and motivated to achieve these sets of goals.

“Hypnotherapy changes how people think, making eating a conscious habit instead of an unconscious one.” – Marc Ponzi


Virtual Gastric Band hypnotherapy can deliver the same weight loss outcomes without invasive surgery or the potential complications

The Virtual Gastric Band has received much attention in the United Kingdom, attracting people from all over the region to undergo the treatments which have seen an incredible 95% success rate amongst patients.

Sheila Granger said, “I am passionate about promoting the benefits of hypnotherapy and allaying the misconceptions associated with stage hypnosis. I believe that the Virtual Gastric Band can revolutionise weight-loss around the world.  I know this because I have proven its effectiveness in two trials conducted in the UK.”

Marc Ponzi is very excited at the prospect of being able to help his clients to lose weight using this revolutionary system and technique.

Marc says, “There is nothing magical or mystical about hypnotherapy, instead it is a method that enables a person to help themselves, without conventional dieting.”
