Exciting News @Sophia's


Phil and I are leaving for pastures new and handing over our amazing business and putting it into the very capable and well deserved hands of MICHELE DIXON. Michele will now be the new DIRECTOR of this successful company.


So, we are moving over to chilly France very shortly for our next exciting challenge. As many of you know I am very impulsive so a bit of a surprise for us also and a very recent decision.

Both of us want to say the hugest thank you to everybody, both clients and friends, who have supported us over this journey at Sophia's. We will never forget our time working alongside the team at Sophia's and the support and friendships we have made along the way.

We are both very excited and looking forward to the next chapter in our lives. We have had so many laughs and good times with you, all of which we will never forget.

Personal story from Michele

Hi everyone. Oh wow, how exciting is this for us all and let me say a big thank you for your continuing support.

I've worked for Sophia's from the very start so lots of experience, and, although a little nervous to take on this role I'm also very excited.

I've some new ideas that you'll see in the coming months but if you have any ideas of your own come and have a chat - I'm all ears.

Sophia's will still be a funny, crazy, atmospheric place to do your workouts etc. and me, Ovie and the rest of the team will do everything possible to make you want to come back screaming for moooore, so watch this space.

In the meantime I'm sure we all wish Paula and Phill the best on their new adventure and please don't worry you two, you've left Sophia's in capable hands.

Let's leave you with a taster of the special offers and new dates that can tempt you in the next couple of months.

What does an Osteopath do?

Osteopaths are often described as treating the INDIVIDUAL rather than the condition, and consider the symptom or injury alongside other biological, physiological and social factors which may be contributing to it. In order to be able to safely diagnose and treat patients, all osteopathic students complete a minimum of 4 years of intensive study, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition and biomechanics, as well as a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical practice.

Whether you're suffering with headaches, back pain, fibromyalgia, arthritic pain, post-operative knee pain, your shoulder is ruining your tennis serve, your golf swing has all gone to pot because of pain when you twist, you can't reach up to the top cupboard anymore, you can't get your own socks on, you're struggling to sleep... OSTEOPATHY CAN HELP.

New Beginnings

So this is my last news letter and I cannot think of a more fitting way to end it than with a THANK YOU.

Sophia's would not be the same or achieved the growth we have without this cheeky but amazing team. Please carry on showing them the support you have always shown us.

Ovie, Claudia, Ree, Vicki, Nina, Hollie and Anne, Dr Juan. A big congratulations to Michele with whom I have worked with for the last 10 years. Good Luck and Enjoy, it's an amazing company and we will miss all of you. XXXXXXX
