HERE’S THE SCOOP…
WHAT JENNIFER LOOS WANTS WOMEN TO KNOW ABOUT PELVIC HEALTH
When physical therapist Jennifer Loos started her own practice, Worthy of Wellness Physical Therapy, she knew she would focus mainly on women's pelvic health. With 14 years of outpatient orthopedic and pelvic health experience, Jennifer has expertise and an empathetic nature for treating a wide variety of women's health issues. Women's pelvic health is not something women openly talk about, but it can, and should be treated! If you experience URINARY LEAKAGE, PAIN DURING SEX, or PAIN DURING OR AFTER PREGNANCY...LISTEN UP LADIES...this is NOT normal. The stats are quite staggering: 1. Of the 25 million adult Americans suffering from incontinence, 75-80% of them are women (raise your hand if you pee yourself while exercising!). 2. At 6 months postpartum, more than 20% of women complain of of pain during sex (75% of women experience pain during sex at some point in their lifetime - YIKES). Jennifer works with patients to identify what is happening within their bodies and pelvic floor muscles, creates an individualized plan of care and alleviates symptoms to improve function and quality of life. Some of her patients have experienced truly life-changing results in as little as one session. She offers private, one-on-one sessions and is currently taking on new patients.

MAZZIE MEOTTI OFFERS UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFTS
Mazzie Meotti is a free spirit and it shows in her work. She recently took her art to another level when she started selling custom items through her Instagram account.

Turn one of your faves into a whimsical rendition that is sure to make you smile. Find her HERE or see some of her work below.
PLAYA BOWLS COMING TO SOMERSET
The popular super fruit bowl shop, Playa Bowls is coming to The Shops at Somerset Square. The chain location was started by two avid surfers in a small to-go cart on the Jersey Shore. They offer smoothie bowls with acai and almost any type of fresh topping you can imagine. They are expected to open this June/July. Stay tuned.
THE BARN OFFICE SPACE EXPECTED TO OPEN THIS SPRING
We are excited to showcase the new co-working space in the old Appalachian Tails space. The Barn offers office suites, co-working space, and state of the art conference rooms. There will be open work spaces and private offices. We are obsessed with the old beams and historical feel to this space! Follow their progress on Instagram or schedule a tour HERE.

SHARON MCCORMICK IS HELPING PRESERVE HISTORY AT THE MARK TWAIN HOUSE
Since 2002, Sharon McCormick has been helping clients transform their space. She started Sharon McCormick Design after renovating her circa 1730 home in Durham, CT. Now she is using her own design expertise and her business to help those in need and to preserve history. She donated her time and talents to the Make-A-Wish Foundation when a recipient wanted their room designed. And, just last year, she joined the planning committee for the Mark Twain House & Museum's annual fundraising gala. The national historic landmark was hit hard by the pandemic (their main source of income was tours and events). But, planning is now underway for the gala this fall and Sharon is asking for donations for the live and silent auctions. To participate, email her at Sharon@sharonmccormickdesign.com
