Tracy Moane is a leading VGB weight loss Practitioner in Wollongong and South of Sydney.

Tracy is constantly upskilling her knowledge with further training, and recently completed the “Virtual Jab” training. This is a new service that Flourish Hypnotherapy is now offering.
Virtual Gastric Banding Versus Gastric Sleeve or Bypass Surgery & Ozempic:
Many people consider the operations as a viable weight loss option, but patients may suffer from significant side effects, these often include intolerance to certain foods, unable to process unblended textures, stomach ulcers, reflux, nausea & vomiting, and more serious effects such as bowel adhesions, bleeding, clots, pneumonia, heart trouble & hernia.
There is no guarantee that you will not put on weight back on after the first 1-2 years of having these operations. Unfortunately, very little is done to change the mindset of the client, and this is why I see clients who have had both the Sleeve and Bypass on a regular basis.
The cost for these operations is between $17,000 - $22,000 depending on the centre unless you have TOP Cover Private Health Insurance. You are still looking at approx. $6000 with TOP COVER.
Most people would prefer to try Hypnosis prior to committing to these operations, as it offers a safe, cost effective, non-invasive alternative, and you will not have any of these side effects or risks that the operations carry.
There has been a recent craze with people turning to taking a shot (needle ) once a week or daily of the medications called Ozempic and Saxenda which were developed for Diabetics. Both medications are now being widely prescribed as a weight loss alternative. Resulting in these medications facing short supply due to the influx of people now taking these drugs. Unfortunately, if you commence this treatment on either medication, there is no promise of it staying in supply so you may end up having to stop and start.
Unfortunately, many patients suffer common side effects from using the Ozempic and / or Saxenda medications (both were originally designed for Diabetics) and some of these are extreme including all day nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and constipation. Ozempic and Saxenda also carry more severe side effects for patients such as Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar). Pancreatitis, Diabetic retinopathy, Kidney failure, Swelling to the ankles and legs, Gallbladder Inflammation & Gallstones, Thyroid Cancer, Other Allergic reactions.
The cost for Ozempic and Saxenda is approx. $275 - $495 per month. This is an ongoing monthly financial commitment. Unfortunately, for many patients as soon as you stop using the medication you put the weight back on, as the medication is no longer tricking the body to feel full.
Why not try Hypnosis prior to committing to a daily or weekly needle that has so many adverse side effects? Hypnosis offers a safe, cost effective, non- invasive alternative, and you will not have any of these side effects or risks that come with the medications.
With Hypnosis the client will feel NONE of the sickening side effects that the operation or jab have such as feeling nauseated all day and you will never face a short supply of Hypnotherapy!
