Hypnotic Gastric Band

Hypnotic gastric band is a total of five sessions, 4 paid for the 5th week free. The five treatments can take place over a week or one session a week over 5 weeks. Weight and measurements taken each session, an average of 2-3 pounds lost every week, if too much weight is lost we can, by hypnosis, slacken the band. If not enough we can tighten the band. This works really well as it involves finding out the root causes of weight gain and each session is a different hypnosis. Each session lasts for approx one to one and a half hours. A food diary is provided to help monitor weight loss. This treatment works, you will find your appetite is decreased and no food is off limits. At various points during treatment you will be provided with emails with hypnotic tracks to continue the treatment at home. This will keep you on track so that you should not need further treatment again, but, of course, if you need me I'm there. I also send occasional information e mails to support you.

You are not on your own. Gastric band operations cost between £6,000 and £12,000 and are proved to be 70% successful, where as gastric band hypnosis is normally 500€ for the 5 sessions, but in Jan/Feb 400€. Payment can be in stages, 100€ per 4 treatments or payment up front (this method ensures the client completes treatment).

Would You Like Your Mobility Back?

Have you any of the following problems:

  • The rehabilitation of joint replacement
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatism
  • M.E. chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Stroke survivors
  • Sports rehabilitation
  • General rehabilitation
  • Various back problems
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension

Most injuries require fast initial intervention to prevent long term medical reliance.

Heart Attacks and General Well Being

Cardio machines as well as strength improving and weight bearing equipment are required. Consideration should be given to running machines, steppers, cross trainers and rowing machines, bicycles and vibration plates.

Stroke Victims and Multiple Sclerosis Sufferers

Electrical assisted machines are ideal. Sophia Wellness Centre already supplies this facility and assists clients of this nature.

Major Hip and Knee Joint Surgeries

Stability, mobility and flexibility exercises require very little machinery. Small hand weights, steps, bars, balls and wobble boards would be required, moving onto weight bearing exercises via fixed machinery.

Are the Toning Tables and Rehab like a gym?

No, fitness fanatics are not allowed. Sophia's Toning and Rehab is a small, cosy area where you can exercise at your own pace and capabilities, relax, unwind, socialise and meet new friends, while receiving personal attention and encouragement from our friendly staff.

Sophia's have the cheapest gym membership in the area. Still only 27.00 euros per calendar month and open from 8am - 10pm (siesta 2-5). With a free induction and personal one to one training and guidance.
