Meet our new Massage Therapist – Sharon Milanese

You can call Sharon many things…a professional dancer, a teaching artist, a pilates practitioner, a Zero Balancer, and a Massage Therapist. Sharon is a compassionate human being who is fascinated with the moving body.  She has been immersed in the world of movement as a professional dance artist, educator, and bodyworker for over 20 years and is in love with the limitless exploration that is possible with the human form.

Sharon’s approach to bodywork is centered around science-based clinical assessment and the role the nervous system plays in all aspects of movement and manual therapies.  She integrates all of her talents to address your specific goals and concerns.  Sharon will work with you to alleviate aches and pain, release restrictions of movement, ease physical and emotional distress, and find tools that you can use to support your health and well-being. Sharon will be taking clients Monday afternoon/evenings in Clinton and Wednesday afternoons in Whitehouse starting Wednesday, 9/8. She will also have weekend hours once a month. Please call the front desk to schedule an appointment.

Building Healthier Workplaces

Gym memberships have a very important role to play in the battle against physical inactivity. According to the World Health Organization, companies are in a unique position to fight inactivity.

The Hunterdon Health & Wellness Centers want to promote healthy work environments! Corporate memberships are available for small and large businesses and can be customized to fit the unique needs of your company. Our goal is to promote wellbeing in and outside of the workplace to help create a better quality of life for our community.

Employers interested in implementing a Corporate Membership, please contact Robin Schneider at rschneider@hhsnj.org for more information and corporate membership rates.

Employees may inquire at the Front Desk to determine if their employer is enrolled in our Corporate Membership Program.
