Local woman buys business to retain services

MARSHFIELD—When Contours’ former owner decided to stop providing Body Sculpting treatments, focusing exclusively on massage therapy, perhaps nobody was more disappointed than Ashley Heeg.
“It was only a few months after I discovered and fell in love with the Body Sculpting treatments, that they were no longer available,” said Heeg. Heeg was intrigued by how the process targets and eliminates the specific fluid and fat cells that cause cellulite and wanted to learn more about it and felt very passionate that the treatments should continue to be offered. So, she offered to buy Contours and provide the treatments herself.
“I was so excited when I decided take the plunge and buy the business. At first, my husband was skeptical, but when I gave him the treatment and he lost 5.25 inches after one session, I had his full support,” Heeg said with a smile.
During the months that followed, Heeg purchased the equipment for the Body Sculpting treatments and trained with Contours’ former owner, consulted with experts in Canada, ordered products from France, and practiced providing the Body Sculpting treatment on willing friends and relatives. Once she felt confident to offer the treatments to the public, she worked with building owners, Erin and Chris Howard, to renovate a space downtown above Mojos Pasta House and Cajun Cook Shack, creating the perfect place for her business.
“When we met Ashley, we knew right away that we wanted her to be a part of the new professional space we’ve created above Mojos,” Erin said. “She just overflows with a positive energy that is truly contagious.”
To complement her Body Sculpting treatments, Heeg installed an infrared sauna at her new downtown location so clients can experience the benefits of that as well. “The infrared sauna is scientifically proven to help people lose weight, strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body, rejuvenate the skin, improve cardiovascular health, relieve pain, and much more,” Heeg explained.
