Meet The Owner, Alyson Cannady
Owner, Alyson Cannady recently opened Skinny JAX, a medical weight loss spa located in south Jacksonville Beach, along with board-certified physician, Dr. Donald S. Freedman. The business is ultimately a plan that Cannady has been improving upon since she became interested in helping people lose those extra pounds over 25 years ago. “I grew up in a hair salon, so I feel comfortable in the beauty industry,” Cannady said. “I’ve always had a passion for being healthy. I grew up very active with dancing but after my pregnancy with my son, I became a Weight Watchers coach.” Cannady said that her active lifestyle came to an abrupt halt with a rough pregnancy.
She gained 65 pounds in six weeks and her hormones were out of control. Losing the post-pregnancy weight, which she refers to as “the battle of the bulge,” inspired her to help others do the same. After growing as a coach, she decided she wanted to build her own business. “I know it’s a pain counting calories and points,” Cannady said. “I don’t have time for that. For some people, it’s a great system, but I wanted to get to a place where food is your friend. It’s your fuel. I want to get you where you want to be, where you can go out to eat and have a life.” In addition, Cannady said she wants to treat all aspects of beautification and self-esteem. After pregnancy and weight loss, many people have loose skin or have cellulite they can’t get rid of. For this, the clinic offers non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reduction treatments, called Venus Freeze and Venus Viva. The treatments help reduce visible acne scarring, wrinkles, cellulite, and sagging. Cannady said these services don’t require downtime and are completely painless. She regularly uses the equipment herself as an alternative to injections.
