Hi there - I'm Megan, CEO and founder of Benefit Body Spa.
After personally benefiting from the cutting edge, non-invasive BTL technology offerings post-partum, I knew that I wanted to help others experience the same improvement in quality of life.
We're thrilled to be the first to bring a full suite of non-invasive treatment options to Fredericton. We view each person as a whole and are happy to offer recommendations from head-to-toe to support people achieve their wellness and aesthetic goals, whether that's building muscle and burning fat, tightening and smoothing the skin, or strengthening the facial muscles and smoothing the skin with a non-invasive facelift.
As a mom of two little ones, supporting moms in their post-partum is a personal passion and priority. Whether you're a mom who is 6 months or 60 years post-partum, our team of nurses are here to support your pelvic floor, core, and vaginal rejuvenation!
We have built a team of RN's, LPN's, medical aestheticians and Naturopaths who are committed to offering a welcoming and inclusive space where every body benefits.
