The “Wellness Group” of Fanwood NJ
Earlier this year, the town of Fanwood welcomed a new business! The “Wellness Group” of Fanwood is made up of four women dedicated to different areas of the wellness profession, including food and health counseling, spiritual life coaching/self-care/journaling, massage therapy, and psychology.
Sharon Goldner is a certified health counselor and Professional Chef who originally had her business “Recipe for a Healthy Life,” in Westfield, her town of residence. She is a certified health counselor who works to assist men and women who want to lose weight and gain more energy. Her specialization is clients with food allergies or gluten intolerance, as she, herself, is sensitive to many foods. Then Goldner found that the space above Fanwood Cleaner’s was available, and grabbed it. Goldner has kept many of her Westfield clients, but also gathered some newcomers since the move to Fanwood. One of the biggest draws to her business are the grocery store tours she offers for for $15.00 a person. (The next one will be on Dec. 13 at Stop & Shop in Watchung.) During the grocery tours, Goldner brings a group around the store to show them healthier options from what they currently purchase, new healthy snack and meal ideas and assistance buying food when suffering from food allergies.
Laura Madrigano is a Certified Spiritual Life Coach who holds Journaling and Self-Care workshops. She was just starting out her business “Nourish My Spirit,” when Goldner approached her about joining the suite, and she jumped at the opportunity. She also suggested the massage therapist she was using, Elizabeth Shults. The final member to joinThe Wellness Group was Francine Conway, a licensed pyschologist. Conway is an author of numerous articles on psychotherapy and pyschological well being.
The Wellness Group suite has a room for each of the women, as well as a kitchen area and restroom. By working together in a shared space, the women can synergize their areas of expertise to offer a more well-rounded program, that they label as “separate but complimentary,” of wellness to patrons.
Right now the group holds Glutten-Free meet ups in their space. The next meet up will take place on Dec. 12, which will be a holiday themed gluten-free cookie exchange. The plan is to take advantage of the space they have and host additional events and speakers.
The Wellness Group is located at 36 South Martine Ave in the heart of Fanwood N.J. The Wellness Group was founded by four women with a passion for Health, Healing, and serving the community . . . . so why not give them a try and see what they can do for you?
