Body Composition scans
DEXA body composition scan measures muscle mass and body fat percentage. DEXA scans are quick and painless. The scan is done in about 10 minutes. Once the scan is done, a detailed report will be generated showing where the muscle and fat is located in your body and we will give you a printed report to take home.
Body Composition is available at our Maroubra and Randwick (Silver St) rooms for only $70 and no referral is needed.
