Michael Sanders - 'How are you? '
A question regularly asked, and rarely answered honestly. We say ‘not bad’ or ‘OK’, when really we may mean ‘I’m worried’, ‘I’m scared’ or ‘I can’t feel happiness or enthusiasm, the way I used to’. So ask yourself, now, ‘How am I?’ There are situations or problems in our lives that can get out of proportion if we let them, and often, the longer we live with these the worse they seem to get. I can quickly reduce your anxiety, depression, stress or phobia using hypnotherapy, a gentle therapy with no negative side effects. You could soon start to feel more positive, motivated and able to cope again. Phone me to arrange a free consultation, then you can tell me the changes in your life that you would like to make, so we can work together to make them happen. Michael Sanders DHP HPD 01822 834799
Helen Samson- Hill
Persistent headaches, neck and shoulder tension, limited neck movement .... these are more common than many of us realise, and the bane of the life of the sufferer. Many types of headaches can be helped by releasing the muscles in the neck, shoulders and back. I do this using deep tissue techniques and improvement is usually experienced after about three sessions. As the neck, shoulder and back muscles regain their length and softness, I teach the client a few simple exercises to use routinely to maintain the new flexibility. These principals of course can be applied to other areas of the body, such as backs, hips, knees to name a few. My aim is always to relieve pain and discomfort, improve flexibility and mobility and equip the client with knowledge to help themselves. I also teach two weekly yoga classes in Tavistock which are friendly and open to all. For more information and appointments please call Helen Samson-Hill on 01822 615812

Are your dentures sitting comfortably?
The loss of some or all of your natural permanent teeth can substantially reduce the quality of your life, your self confidence and some basic daily functions such as eating and speaking. Dentures both complete and partial can be worn which restore our self esteem and confidence with speaking and eating. Over time as our bodies change our mouths do as well, but unfortunately our dentures do not and can become worn, loose and ill fitting. With age the gum ridges in our mouths can shrink quite readily causing dentures to become loose and easily displaced, this is especially noticeable when eating or speaking. Loose dentures can cause painful sore spots to the gum and cheek areas which no longer makes meal times a pleasure. Dentures that are ill fitting and have a worn biting surface often give the wearer a sunken and therefore aged facial appearance, with a noticeable lack of natural lip support. A worn biting surface on the teeth part of the denture can cause problems with chewing which means the wearer has to resort to a soft food diet. This has then been known to contribute to future digestive problems. It is widely accepted that a denture should be replaced every 3-7 years but denture wearers should attend regular check up appointments like those who have their natural teeth. During these appointments the Dentist or for those who have no natural teeth the Clinical Dental Technician can check the gums and soft tissues which can be at risk from oral cancers to ensure that they are healthy. Todays advancement in materials and techniques, coupled with a far greater understanding of the denture wearers emotional needs, enable the clinical dental technician to hand craft dentures with the most natural appearance and improved function. The clinical dental technician personally undertakes all stages both in the clinic and the laboratory to give you dentures which improve your smile and restore facial and lip support so that only you the wearer know that you are wearing dentures.
