Stan Townsend, owner of Townsend Health, was passing through Susanville over the holidays and happened to be very impressed by the friendly folks in our small town. As a person who is passionate about helping people reach their health goals, he reached out to the Lassen County Times in order to share with our readers information about the weight loss program that he offers. You may have seen some of his advertisements of the before and after pictures of people who had struggled for years with unwanted body fat that finally found success with their Power of One program.

The patented health formula works three times better and faster than any fat burner on the market. The complete system includes one shake, one drink and one pill a day, in addition to a 1,200 calorie a day eating program, less carbs and sugars and no eating after 7 p.m. Clients who began a moderate exercise program increased their results. Many people have been able to lose up to 15 pounds in eight days with an increased sense of energy and overall well-being. If you have been struggling with weight issues, then pick up the phone and find out how this just might be the best investment you make in your health this year. See their ad in this week’s paper for more information or call 1(800) 528-4033 and tell him the newspaper referred you.

The holiday season is a time when we focus on doing for others and the New Year is a time to focus on what you plan to do for yourself in the coming year. If you’re like most people, it usually includes doing something to look and feel better. While most people don’t want to talk about things like out-of-control facial hair, Manjit Ahuja, at Touch of Thread in Uptown Susanville, is an expert in unwanted hair removal using the less painful technique of threading. The all-natural, chemical-free threading hair removal can be done on your entire face, arms or just a few specialty areas. It is a great way to get customized shapely eyebrows, or remove facial hair without unwanted breakouts. If you’re tired of plucking and waxing and want to try something new, visit their unique boutique at 22 North Lassen St. and check out their gifts and assorted embroidered fashions for ladies in small to plus sizes.
