OUR MISSION

Come tell us your story. We are a medically-supervised weight management center and want to help you achieve a healthy sustainable weight.  Our mission is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and helpful environment for you to talk about your weight. There is no obligation to join a program at 101 WEIGHT MANAGEMENT CLINIC, but please take a moment to review the programs we offer to see if any might be helpful to YOU!

What WE can DO for that:

  • Optifast program
  • Neurobiofeedback
  • Mind machine
  • Acupuncture
  • Group and individual psychotherapy
  • LED light therapy

OPTIFAST

The OPTIFAST Program is a medically supervised weight management program that closely monitors and assesses progress towards better health and emotional well-being. The program, which usually lasts 26 weeks, utilizes a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared ‘everyday’ meals, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support.

NEUROBIOFEEDBACK

Neurofeedback can help bring your body and emotions to a balanced state. It resets basic body functions such as sleep cycles and appetite control. Neurofeedback trains your brain to know when you are hungry and when you are full.  With Neurofeedback you will gain natural control over your appetite. Your cravings will be reduced and your brain will guide you to a healthy lifestyle.

MIND-MACHINE AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Modern light and sound machines are unique computer systems, designed to create a sound and light stimulation of the brain with multiple controllable parameters (frequency, volume, intensity, tone, amplitude, phase, period and certain other characteristics).

You can use Mind Machine within original weight loss programs to:

  • change the chemical composition of the brain to increase feelings of pleasure and enhance neurochemical elements of fun and enjoyment
  • reduce the level of stress and anxiety that lead to overeating
  • change behaviour patterns and attitudes towards nutrition, changing negative scripts, using positive suggestion, visualization into a deeply relaxed state of trance

ACUPUNCTURE FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Ear acupuncture therapy is based on the theory that the outer ear represents all parts of the body. One type uses one needle inserted into the area that is linked to hunger and appetite, while the other involves inserting five needles at different key points in the ear.

The hunger acupuncture point is a good choice in terms of convenience. However, for patients suffering from central obesity, continuous stimulation of five acupuncture points should be used. The effectiveness of acupuncture on obese patients is closely related to metabolic function. Increased metabolic function promotes the consumption of body fat, overall resulting in weight loss.

LED LIGHT THERAPY FOR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

LED Light Therapy is a form of non-invasive holistic energy, which stimulates basic structure of the skin at the cellular level.

LED Light Therapy station emits wavelengths ranging from 625 to 980 nm, which stimulate the body in a way similar to what takes place during several minutes or hours of exercise. Sessions stimulate the metabolism and “burn” calories both during and after the session due to increased metabolic rate and the body’s thermogenic response to the heated environment. The additional energy consumed approximates the energy consumed in brisk walking or jogging for an equivalent time. The device can help you to shed pounds over the course of a few treatments, which range from 30-100 minutes.
