An innovative strategy to start losing weight can now be combined with a luxury weekend in Brittany.  The non-invasive virtual gastric banding therapy is available during a three-night stay, commencing 30th March 2012, at La Longère, a boutique B&B retreat in a restored 18th century farmhouse with log fires and a jacuzzi. La Longère sits in an acre of tranquil countryside close to the village of Languidic in southern Brittany and handy for exploring sandy beaches, historic towns and the standing stones of Carnac.

The weight-loss treatment is by visiting virtual gastric band therapist Jacqueline A. Spence MBACP, who explains: “This is a holistic, non-invasive approach that offers all the benefits of weight loss surgery without the risks, utilising both cognitive behavioural therapy and the power of clinical hypnotherapy.” Treatment is in three 2 hour sessions over two days and guests are free to explore or relax for the rest of the time.

The three night B&B stay, including one evening meal, is 300 euros for a couple and the virtual gastric banding therapy is 295 euros per person. Travel options include Brittany Ferries to St Malo or Roscoff with 20% discount, flights to Nantes, Rennes or Dinard or Eurostar to Lorient.
