Reflexology Woodcroft and Fullarton

Sarah Fox – Reflexology and Relaxation Massage
The Body Philosophy

The Body Philosophy has a serene retreat feel and fits perfectly with the fantastic 5-star facilities at Living Choice. It’s a fantastic place to unwind!

Body Philosophy owner and Wellness Centre Co-ordinator, Sarah Fox, has been practicing and developing healthcare and wellness businesses in the UK and Australia for over 25 years. “As the Wellness Centre co-ordinator, my aim is to offer opportunities to caring, compassionate practitioners to work in a multi-disciplinary team of like-minded, client focused people. This ensures that the service we give as individuals to you, our clients, can be translated into a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing through education and informed cross-referrals within the team. That’s why as a team we decided to offer initial cross-referral consultations for free!”

“As a Reflexology and Relaxation Massage Practitioner, being in alignment with you is my prime objective. We all constantly change. No two days are the same when it comes to how we feel. Adapted to your needs, Reflexology supports you through deep relaxation and release. Relaxation Massage relieves stress and tension. Both treatments give you a sense of peace and mindfulness. You can experience both treatments in ½-hour or 1-hour sessions. Why not combine both in a 1-hour treatment, the ultimate experience!
