Martin and Marion Shirran.

Martin and Marion’s GMB Non-Surgical, Weight-Loss treatment, was developed at their Elite Clinic in Fuengirola, Spain in 2004. They initially treated a wide range of client problems, ranging from substance abuse to numerous psychological issues. During 2007 they started developing their psychological approach to weight loss, the ‘Gastric Mind Band’. This followed their research which indicated a lack of non-surgical alternatives in the health industry that could help people to lose weight safely.

The process, which incorporates Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis and NLP, along with many other elements, produces incredible results, at just a fraction of the cost of weight loss surgery. Since it was established, their treatment has gone from strength to strength, and has been featured in national newspapers, magazines, and lifestyle TV shows, on both sides of the Atlantic.

Martin and Marion Shirran flew to New York to appear on the Good Morning America Special regarding their work around Weight Loss.
