About Well Bodi Salone
"Well bodi nar gentri" is the Krio translation for the adage "health is wealth." At Well Bodi Salone, we believe that true wealth is found not in the balance of your bank account or the number of economic assets you have but in the quality of your health. Monetary wealth may be able to buy you luxuries but all the luxuries in the world are worthless if you are in poor health.
