It's easy to see that Sherry Summers-Ball is passionate about the human body. She has traveled throughout Texas training doctors, clinicians, and therapists in Endermologie; and she has advanced knowledge on post-surgery healing. She now runs Body BeneFits, which has received many accolades in Living Magazine's Best of The Woodlands, including best spa, med spa, facials, tanning, waxing, and massage.
Under Sherry's guidance a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and medical professionals beautify bodies with time-tested and cutting-edge treatments. An array of body wraps, such as the Sudatonic infrared Detox wrap, help to smooth and soften the skin, whereas Endermologie treatments help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Clients can also receive services such as skin tightening, IPL, and laser hair removal. And just walking into Body BeneFits itself can help clients relax—an orchid blossoms inside the lobby, which soothes eyes with neutral tones and cradles bodies on a giant sectional sofa.

Inside Potteryland's colorful studio, visitors sit at brightly painted tables and chairs as they wait for their next creative stroke of genius. Wielding brushes, stencils, and sponges, each artist gets a chance to customize their own raw ceramic bisque by layering its surface with colorful glazes. With a huge variety of forms to choose from, painters can browse the selection before choosing animal figures, dinner plates, or holiday-themed shapes. Potteryland also offers canvas-painting classes for all ages, where artists can flex their creative skills on a two-dimensional surface before taking home their completed masterpiece or donating it to a museum for safekeeping.
Within Lavo Collections’ four bustling boutiques, an ever-updating array of fashionable threads entices visitors with catwalk-ready looks displayed on jauntily posed mannequins. Billowing fabrics and curve-hugging colors abound in silhouette-flattering sundresses or business-casual blouses, and waist-slimming pencil skirts provide canvases for intricate belts, delicate jewelry, or wearable versions of Rembrandt’s The Night Watch.
Dolce Bella Fine Lingerie stocks a curve-hugging cache of silk and lace undergarments, expertly fitted by experienced specialists of intimate apparel. The skivvies selection flatters silhouettes of all shapes, sizes, and styles, with bras ranging from 30AA to 44J and brands such as Chantelle, Wacoal, and Simone Perele.
With a stock of oils, vinegars, and spices plucked from around the world, it’s fitting that Oil & Vinegar is itself an import, first conceived of in the Netherlands in 1999. Since then, the multinational shop has expanded to more than 70 locations across 13 countries, garnering awards and popularity along the way for its international foods and cookware from Italy, Spain, and France. The Woodlands outpost is no different, highlighting a dizzying collection of imported goodies with a lighted wall of suspended glass containers filled with more than 40 golden, olive-green, and caramel-hued oils and vinegars on tap. Customers can sample these flavors before filling up oil bottles brought from home or from an abandoned Pizza Hut. Specialty olives, flavored pastas, and fig spreads round out the selection and fill sturdy, wooden shelves alongside European hand-painted ceramics and cookbooks.
