Message from Michele


Well what a crazy few months it has been! I am really enjoying my new role as Director and hope you have enjoyed the subtle changes I have made. We have some exciting plans for the New Year which I am sure you will see very soon. I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Stacey & Ovie for all the support and help they have given me, and I am sure you feel the same. So, here is my chance to say Thank You all for your ongoing support and I wish you a happy and healthy 2019.

Message from Ree

The end of my first year at Sophia's is fast approaching! And what a great year it's been!

From frozen shoulders, to sciatica, to plantar fibromyalgia, to headaches to arthritis......from dodgy knees to bad hips it's certainly been varied! And it's been an absolute pleasure treating the fantastic folks of the Almanzora Valley.

Thank you SO much to everyone at Sophia's for making me feel so welcome, and for being so supportive of my new clinic. Thanks too to all of my fab patients, for all of the lovely testimonials, and the recommendations to others.

It's been a truly fabulous first year....I can't believe that it's almost over!

Wishing you and yours a VERY Happy Christmas, and a wonderful, healthy and happy 2019!!
