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, including Best Spa 2013, 2014, and 2015 in Living Magazine's Best of The Woodlands.
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.
