Eating healthy is a priority for all moms, but the reality of eating healthy regularly is often a tall task.  Freshii Middletown is unique in that it is “healthy fast food.”  Local owners Kevin and Joan O’Hear were inspired by their own struggles with their oldest child being diagnosed with Celiac Disease 15 years ago and the lack of appealing fast-meal options not just for gluten-free, but healthy and special diets in general that could appeal to families with and without the restraints that made everyone happy for a one-stop meal for all.

Freshii has built a great following of northern Monmouth County residents. Located at 838 Route 35S in Middletown (the Stop & Shop/Kohl’s/Big Lots plaza), it is a “fast-casual” restaurant led by nutrition, offering delicious, quick, healthy, and affordable meals to Middletown and the surrounding areas. The perfect spot to stop in for a healthy lunch, with options for kids too!

  Freshii serves made-to-order and customizable bowls, burritos, salads, wraps, soups, smoothies, and juices using only fresh, natural ingredients. Optional proteins include chicken, steak, tofu, and falafel, their meals cater to regular, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, keto, paleo and/or dairy-free diets, and all dishes can be customized. Their portions are super-satisfying and very reasonably priced. And although kids often choose from the regular menu, they do have a special kid’s menu with items that appeal to smaller eaters!

Despite just opening in February of 2019, they were THRILLED to be voted “One of the BEST! of 2020” for TWO restaurant categories by Asbury Park Press readers: Casual Dining and Fast Food. If only there was a “healthy” category, it would have been a trifecta!

Pelvic Health/Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy and Mental Health Counseling devoted to helping women take back their power and find lasting relief.

   We help women recover from and prevent pelvic pain, urinary and bowel challenges, including incontinence and constipation, sexual dysfunction and pain, including vaginismus and vulvodynia, prenatal and postpartum issues, including pain during pregnancy, labor and delivery preparation, Diastasis Recti and C-section recovery, prolapse, as well as other pelvic and orthopedic conditions. We also address difficulties with stress, relationships, unresolved trauma, grief, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and more…

  These challenges are all interconnected, so our practice uses a whole-self approach, acknowledging and honoring the entire mind-body system. We search for the source of pain (physical and emotional) and treat multiple concerns at once, for optimal outcomes. We help women reach their fitness goals by focusing on optimizing core strength, flexibility, and overall power in order to do all the difficult things that moms have to do on a daily basis—and feel confident, capable, and proud of what they achieve day-to-day. To feel strong, and be strong. We provide full hour-long sessions, and we ensure 1-on-1, undivided attention, in-person, in your home, or virtually—removing barriers to you getting your needs met. No need to worry about finding childcare, factoring in driving time to appointments, or waiting in a busy waiting room— we come to you!

  We both have advanced clinical training—Kim in external and internal hands-on pelvic-floor PT evaluation, treatment, and corrective exercise, and Sam in perinatal mental health and the trauma-focused treatment approach, EMDR. We are determined to help women discover their physical and emotional strength, so that they can live active, confident, fulfilled lives on their own terms. And, while something may be amiss, we hope to decrease your fear of there being something “wrong” with you, and provide first-line, holistic, and integrative prevention and care.
