Free Weight-Loss Lecture in Fort Myers

Dorothy Rodwell

Dorothy Rodwell

In an ideal way for people to try to fulfill a highly popular New Year’s resolution, Dorothy Rodwell, LMFT, and certified psychotherapist with AHA! A Holistic Approach Center, in Fort Myers, will lead a free educational lecture on the powerful virtual gastric band (VGB) weight-loss program from 1 to 2 p.m., January 9, at the center. VGB, a non-surgical technique that uses the power of hypnosis to retrain patients to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food, was pioneered in the UK by internationally renowned Clinical Hypnotherapist Sheila Granger.

Information and testimonials will be provided about how this innovative, safe and effective approach to weight loss facilitates users in eating what they want, but in smaller portions and without feeling deprived, miserable or hungry.

Rodwell has been practicing since 2003 and introduced VGB into her practice in Jan 2015, after being certified in the method with Granger.

Location: 15971 McGregor Blvd. For more information or to register, call 239-851-7166 or 239-433-5995, email or or visit
