Welcome New Member: Matawan United Methodist Church
We invite you to discover this sacred space for worship, with its beautiful people. Find here joy, laughter and friendship. We joyfully welcome everyone—and we mean EVERYONE! We are especially sensitive to those who have little or no history of religious expression, but who yearn for spiritual meaning and experience. We reach out to those who are lonely, on the margin of life, and those who experience discrimination with respect to race or gender identity and expression. We gather every Sunday at 10 am. Come early and enjoy praise music. Refreshments and friendship take place afterward in the Fellowship Hall.
The church serves the community in a variety of ministries: a Food Pantry, Thrift Shop and a Flea Market on Saturdays, beginning in May. We support the Women’s Shelter with a Holiday collection. The church sponsors both a boy scout and a girl scout troop. Our volley ball court was renovated by High School volunteers and is open to the public. We offer Rummage Sales twice a year, as well as special dinners and a Holiday Tea as fundraisers. Two districts vote here.
Our pastor, Nick Connolly, entered a life of ministry sixty years ago, first as a Jesuit for twenty-four years, the remaining years as a United Methodist pastor. He brings a background in professional counseling. He simply loves being a pastor and connecting with others. Come! Find the divine within yourself and share the joy!
Visit our website: matawanumc.org for all our activities and a blog of Pastor Nick’s sermons where you can listen.

Welcome New Member: Business Insurance Consultants, Inc
(BIC & Affiliates, LLC)
Protecting businesses and individuals – since 1990. Your Full Service “TRUSTED CHOICE” Independent Insurance Agent.
Shopping for insurance can be time-consuming and confusing; realizing that you have insufficient policy limits or being denied coverage by your insurer will not only anger you but can set you back financially or possibly even bankrupt you. The media is constantly bombarding us with advertisements on how to save money on car and home insurance, but how do you really know what is best for your particular needs? We all know that cheaper is not always better; why should it be any different with insurance? Are these people giving you proper advice or are you just being sold? Why be stuck with the products and limitations of only one insurance company? Wouldn’t you rather have choices and representatives working on your BEHALF with your best interest in mind?
Business Insurance Consultants, Inc. (BIC) will propose insurance policies tailored to your specific needs at competitive prices through its large selection of the best insurance companies, but Business Insurance Consultants, Inc. offers more than insurance products!

As members of The DeForest Group, a partnership of 180 insurance agents country-wide, BIC has the capability to provide you the benefits, resources, and strength of a large insurance broker, but will promise you the personal, quality service of a small local office.

Welcome New Member: Brain – Body OT Sensory Gym, LLC
Brain – Body OT Sensory Gym, LLC, without a doubt is the Occupational Therapy Clinic of choice in the Central New Jersey area. At our sensory clinic we offer our clients and their families all of the attention and care to improve their quality of life. We specialize in sensory integration, self-regulation, social skills, feeding therapy, handwriting, and school advocacy.
Our Sensory Integration (SI) Certified Therapists will work closely with you and your child to determine his or her sensory needs. Our OT will expose your child to sensory stimulating environments through repetitive functional tasks and play activities. The OT gradually makes activities more challenging and complex to encourage graded responses. The idea is that through repetition, your child’s nervous system will respond in a more “organized” way to sensations and movement.
Our professional team is here to guide our clients and their families every step of the way throughout their journeys. Our goal is to help our clients learn adaptive ways to manage their feelings and use appropriate prosocial behaviors to target self-regulation skills. Together we build safe living environments.
There are many ways in which our OT’s may be able to support your child’s developing social skills, including:
- Breaking down the task into more manageable units…
- Using your child’s interests to engage with others…
- Modifying the environment to facilitate appropriate social behaviors…
- Acknowledging the different stages of play to reinforce social interaction skills, such as turn taking, eye contact, sharing…
Handwriting legibility is the functional outcome when fine motor skills are working well. Fine Motor skills involve all of the small muscles of the body: more specifically those that control precise movements of the hands, wrists, feet, toes, lips, and tongue. The small muscles of the hands and fingers are the most important for developing handwriting skills. Our Therapists will work with your child to strengthen grasp and/ or provide adaptive equipment to improve quality of written work.
Feeding therapy is more than just “teaching a child to eat.” Our feeding certified therapists work closely with clients and their families to determine the source of the his or her difficulties and develop very specific strategies to make the entire process of eating easier and more enjoyable.

Welcome new member: The Detox Box
Light and Sound Therapy
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have known at an early age of what my true purpose has been in my working life. I graduated from The Swedish Institute of Massage Therapy in New York City in 1991 and have been a licensed practitioner for almost 30 years.
My career path has taken me all over the place. I had my own practice in NYC for many years and was quoted by the New York Times Magazine as being one of the “top therapists you need to go see “. After moving out to the suburbs of New Jersey, the commute seemed to be a little challenging so I decided to stay local. I have worked at a number of physical therapy offices and spas in the area and have always wanted to have my own practice here in beautiful Matawan. It’s always amazing how things work in mysterious ways and I found the perfect spot.
I have my health studio in a coworker establishment. Perfect for me as I enjoy cross promotion and feel like we have a family atmosphere at work with me here at 75 Main St. Matawan.
The Detox Box offers a variety of natural science based alternative therapies, such as Massage, Sound and Light therapy. I am also a Reiki practitioner and offer dry cupping.
I am most excited about Sound Therapy. It really helps with anxiety, depression, P.T.S.D and neurological conditions such as tremors and Parkinson’s disease and many other mental health issues.
More information is available on my website http://thedetoxbox.net/services and Instagram thedetoxboxnj.
As a healing practitioner, I have found that sometimes a different way or approach can be the answer you are looking for. Text or call 732-749-9128.
We all suffer at times and I look forward to being of service.

Welcome new member: Kin Chi Yoga
“My name is Shellini. I am not the same person I was a few years ago.
I battled PCOS and asthma since my teens and was at an unhealthy weight for my age. I was constantly ill, and on medication for high blood pressure. One day I made the decision to change. I started with my nutrition and a simple exercise routine. I cut my food portions in half, cut back on sugar, carbs, junk food and made an effort to walk 6 out of 7 days a week for no less than 20 mins per day. I began to see results.
Along my journey was when I discovered yoga. Yoga helped me get into better shape. I became a new and improved version of myself. I no longer took medication. I came to realize, if I could lose the weight, I could do anything I set my mind to do. I wanted to become a yoga teacher and share this gift with others. I wanted to help others in a similar way. Kin Chi Yoga was born; a warm yoga studio in Hazlet. We offer studio classes at gym prices.
What does Kin Chi Yoga mean?
Kin is Old English for family and friends. Chi is Chinese for life force energy. Yoga is Sanskrit which means union.
Kin Chi Yoga was created to help build a community of yogi’s in a non-intimidating, welcoming environment to learn and practice yoga. Our studio has a kind of different vibe.

Welcome Member: Liz Lutchman of Beautiful Touches Home Staging & Redesign
Did you know that after walking into a house for sale, it takes less than 20 seconds for most buyers to decide if they are interested in the home? Sellers today need to make their house look fabulous both online and in person- if they want it to stand out from the competition and sell quickly.
Our mission at Beautiful Touches is to help sellers to maximize the impact that the appearance of their home will have on buyers. By staging the home to look absolutely amazing, it generates a lot of interest and increases the chances of an offer. This is why professionally staged homes often sell faster and for a higher price compared to similar homes that are not staged.
Owner, Liz Lutchman, has been staging and decorating homes since 2011 and we offer different packages to suit the particular needs and budget of every home. In addition to home staging, we can assist you in updating and redecorating your established home or in setting up your new home.
If you are planning to put your house on the market, call us at Beautiful Touches Home Staging and Redesign and we’ll make your home the one that buyers can’t wait to visit.

Welcome New Member: VoiceNEXT
Fourteen years ago, Mike and I set out to build a better phone company for business. Back then, not too many people had ever heard of VoIP which stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It may not yet be a household word, but today, it is much more recognized. The Internet was called the Internet. Now it is popular to call it the Cloud.
So we started VoiceNEXT, a phone company that hosts our clients’ phone systems in the Cloud. That means several things. There are savings up to 80% over the cost of other business phone systems because there is no “phone system” to buy. Our customers need only buy the phones. Our voice quality is unparalleled. You need never miss an important phone call ever again as our mobility features can keep you in touch no matter where you happen to be. Snow storm keeping you from getting to the office? Is there a power outage? Is the Internet down? None of these will interrupt your ability to communicate if you are a VoiceNEXT customer.
The most important reason to consider moving your business phone services to VoiceNEXT is that we care as much about our business you do. We are the phone company that ALWAYS answers the phone. Need help, need to make a change, we are there for you 24/7/365. There is no need to press ten buttons before you get to speak to a live person.
So if your old phone system is on its last legs, or if you want to reduce costs, increase efficiency and productivity, give us a call us to talk about how VoiceNEXT can help your business grow. Let us manage your communications so that you can manage of your business.

Welcome New Member: Inner Health & Weight Loss
Owned by Tania and Art Campbell, Inner Health & Weight Loss offers people that need to lose weight a safe, proven, and fast weight loss alternative that has helped thousands of people lose significant weight and reset their metabolism to keep the weight off.
We are passionate about helping men and women who have failed time after time, to finally succeed and be inspired to not only lose weight, but also begin to understand how living a healthier lifestyle can be rewarding. It is truly a gift to be able to help people with this program, just as we were years ago.
Once considering Bariatric surgery and on cholesterol medication, Art was introduced to the HCG diet protocol and lost 35 pounds in 40 days and his cholesterol dropped 45 points, eliminating the need for medication. Tania was frustrated after her 4:30AM workouts weren’t helping her get rid of those trouble spots and her weight loss was very slow. Once on the program, she was able to lose 27 pounds in 40 days.
Our HCG diet protocol is medically supervised and targets a person’s abnormal fat reserves. While it is a reduced calorie protocol, it is not a 500-calorie diet. It removes hunger and increases energy by metabolizing fat cells for dramatic weight loss without losing muscle.
We all know someone who has struggled with their weight, we would love to help!
We are located at Plaza 34 at 1070 Route 34 and offer all Chamber members a 15% discount.

Welcome New Member: Bayside Manor Assisted Living
Bayside Manor Assisted Living in Keansburg is celebrating its 20th anniversary. And they are holding a party to mark the occasion.
The Cappadona family, who has been in the senior healthcare business for more than 30 years, opened Bayside Manor in 1997 at its location at 7 Laurel Ave.
“We have learned so much from our residents, employees and families,” owner Joanne Cappadona said. “We are definitely one big family with a remarkable bond.”
According to the facility’s website, Bayside Manor was conceived and designed by Joe Cappadona with the help of his siblings Anthony, Elena and Joanne in 1995. Working together, the family opened the facility’s original building in 1997.
Bayside Manor is also locally owned and operated, and for the Cappadonas, it’s an advantage.
“Bayside Manor and our family have been extremely blessed,” Joanne Cappadona said. “Larger corporations don’t have the freedom to make the decisions we have here.”
Being owner-operated has also given Bayside Manor a strong focus on bonds throughout the facility, creating a welcoming environment for both employees and residents.
“Much of our staff have been long-term friends and employees,” Joanne Cappadona said. “They make Bayside Manor what it is. Bayside Manor is about strong relationships, people and friendships. Our staff always gives, always steps up and are the most compassionate employees.”
After being in service for 20 years, the Cappadonas feel it is a privilege to have met and helped numerous families. The facility currently houses 147 residents.
“Over the years, we have made remarkable connections with our residents and our staff,” Joanne Cappadona said. “We feel blessed that family members entrusted Bayside to watch over and take care of their loved ones.”
But they won’t stop any time soon.
“Our hopes are to grow as a facility,” Joanne Cappadona said. “We hope that when a new client walks through our doors, they will know that Bayside Manor is their home.”
Bayside Manor’s motto is “Welcome to the family, make yourself at home,” and after 20 years of servicing the community, it couldn’t be more fitting.
