For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.

For Fusion Bodyworks’ owner, Jody Manofsky, true fitness is all about balance. She should know—her 15-year career has included stints as an aerobics instructor and personal trainer, as well as work as both a massage and chiropractic rehab therapist. Her career took another turn in 2006, when she discovered yoga. Enamored with the practice’s ability to relax her mind and strengthen her body, she trained to become a certified instructor so that she could add it to the cadre of tools she uses to help others find similar balance in their own lives.
Today at Fusion Bodyworks, Jody blends each aspect of her background as she works with clients not only to improve their fitness, but also to map out their goals and find the best route to getting them there. That route can include anything from personal training and nutrition counseling to regular massage, which can help speed recovery following a strenuous workout or injury. In addition to taking on individual clients, Fusion Bodyworks offers corporate services and can bring classes, workshops, or personal-training skills to employees in any office or aboard any shrimp boat.
