Sarah Butler Therapies
Hello I’m Sarah of Sarah Butler Therapies, a professional complementary therapy and wellness service for women. I offer treatments to help you relax and recharge, but also to support your health and well-being, depending on your requirements.
Treatments take place at my tranquil treatment room at Little Stone, Frithelstockstone (5 miles from Bideford, 3 miles from Torrington, 10 miles from Barnstaple) . I also practice at Torridge Chiropractic Clinic in Bideford regularly.
I also, with my therapist/s colleague/s deliver pamper parties – hen, birthday, anniversary, baby shower or just a get together with the girls! These are extremely popular and fun.
I offer a range of treatments, including:
A bit about me
As a Complementary Therapist I take great pride in the quality of my services and have a calm and friendly manner (I’m told!). I always take care to put you at ease, whatever the treatment/s you are receiving, fully explaining the procedure and ensuring that you are comfortable and relaxed. I use quality products ensuring the maximum benefit for you and your treatment (see Product Information).
I started my business in November 2015. Originally it was called Back to Beauty, but I changed the name to Sarah Butler Therapies in April 2020 to reflect the services I offered.
I was very lucky shortly after starting my business to gain employment as a Spa Therapist at Harland House Spa in February 2016. I worked there on a self employed basis for 2.5 years (until its closure) whilst building up my own business.
Again, in early 2016 I was fortunate to begin volunteering at North Devon Hospice’s Wellbeing Days at Holsworthy. Both these roles helped me establish myself and my new role and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. I hope to go back to the Hospice Wellbeing Days when it is safe to do so.
Prior to being a therapist I spent most of my working life in administration; including 10 years at a local legal practice as a PA and then Practice Manager, and the last 10 years as an Administration Lead with the NHS. Wanting a complete change, I applied for voluntary redundancy and retrained, first as a Beautician, and then Massage Therapist. Training in Complementary Therapies (my passion) and latterly, a relatively new therapy, ScarWork, extended my knowledge further.
I am currently training in Oncology Massage and Oncology Reflexology to complement my voluntary role at North Devon Hospice and also my own practice.
I absolutely love the industry and am extremely proud of all I offer.
I am fully trained with Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) Levels 2 & 3 and City & Guilds (C&G) Level 3 and am a member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT); I am also fully insured with the FHT.
