“Thursday was my last day of PT and I was a bit sad as I was walking to my car. I will miss the happy, healthy, upbeat atmosphere of the office.
Each day, as I walked through the door, I was greeted by the entire team and made to feel like part of a caring family. After my greeting, they asked how I was feeling, listened and responded by modifying my treatment accordingly. Upon returning to my next visit, they picked up where we left off, remembering where I needed the most help. I felt the entire team was looking out for me, gently coaching and watching to ensure I got the most out of my exercises.
I have attended several excellent presentations and will continue to do so as the opportunity arises. NMR’s wholistic approach to wellness has prompted me to juice and make much better food choices, which has resulted in taking way less over-the-counter medication.
Voices I hear daily: ‘pay now or pay later’; headache medication can actually cause more headaches; don’t feed your children things you would not eat yourself; sugar and flour cause inflammation, diabetes and high cholesterol; don’t be overwhelmed, you don’t need to make all the changes at once, just keep going in the right direction, I’m not going to lie to you – this hurts – LOL. I love you all and rave about you every chance I get.” ~Kristie Axt
“The relaxing, friendly, and supportive staff made sessions enjoyable. It also kept me coming back! Thanks for all you’ve done!” – Caroline F.
“When I first walked into Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation I was in a great deal of pain due to a herniated disc, the pain would spike and literally drop me to my knees; quality of life at this point was nonexistent. I met with Dr. Vince Sferra, Clinic Director. After a review of my MRI and through exam, he suggested a program of physical therapy; that was 3 months ago. Today, the pain, is about 95% gone…it’s a lot like someone allowing you to rewind the clock, you feel human again. There are 2 components that contribute to success: commitment and dedication, both of which are exemplified by the staff at Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation. Regardless of how I felt when I walked through the door, I was made to feel welcomed, starting with reception through the conclusion of my workout. The staff is professional, extremely knowledgeable courteous and attentive, giving you the feeling that they’re only there for you. Every exercise down to the simplest stretch is explained and demonstrated with your wellbeing in mind. The entire staff of Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation truly exemplifies their motto, Better Health, Better Life.”

“I was referred to Natural Medicine and Rehabilitation (NMR) for an issue I was having with joint flexibility and pain. The professional and knowledgeable staff are a pleasure to work with. The treatment provided by NMR had immediate results which exceeded my expectations. The positive results have motivated me to work harder and continue treatment. NMR has provided me with with long term solutions which will improve my physical health for the rest of my life. ”

“In early 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my right breast. I underwent a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy, followed by seven weeks of radiation. Approximately two months after my treatments were finished I resumed exercising and doing yoga. I immediately noticed tightness in my right underarm and weakness in the arm itself with significant loss of motion in my right shoulder. I reported these symptoms to my radiation oncologist at my three month follow-up appointment, and he prescribed physical therapy, and I am so glad he did.
“It was my lucky day when my niece recommended Dr. Sferra and his staff at NMR Branchburg facility. I had previously been to two other rehab facilities, but in a very short time I knew that the level of competence was far superior at NMR and that I had found my rehab home. Their knowledge, dedication and the support they give to each patient makes the rehab visit, besides beneficial, a very pleasant one— it’s actually fun.”
-Sandi Medvedich, Pittstown, NJ
“As a former patient of NMR, I would like to say Dr. Sferra and staff are very dedicated and helpful. They were always pleasant and eager to work with me to improve my health. On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate NMR 10!”

“I have been going to NMR almost since its inception and they have successfully helped me through many crisis. I have always found Dr. Sferra and his entire staff to be nothing but friendly, courteous and helpful with your best interest and health a priority. I would highly recommend to anyone in need.”
-Nicki H. Manville, NJ
“Dr. Jeremy and the staff at NMR have been instrumental in my rehabilitation since undergoing orthroscopic shoulder surgery. They have extremely great skills in dealing with each individual and the knowledge of progression as you move through the therapy and the process. I am extremely grateful for their outstanding treatment and thank them all sincerely.”
“I set up an appt at NMR for a full health consultation and blood work. The entire staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I was given a diet plan and a few vitamins that were recommended after reviewing my blood work and I feel 100% better. I am sleeping much better, not chronically fatigued and have much more energy. I purchased protein powder that they carry at NMR and I no longer feel bloated after consuming a shake. I was using several other brands that were filled with a lot of garbage and chemicals causing the continuous bloated ” Horrible ” feeling. As you can see by the ingredients the stuff they recommended is very clean and all natural. I am so happy with everything that NMR has provided and the staff is always available for questions/ solutions to all concerns. I highly recommend NMR to everyone looking to get back in shape and start a cleaner style of living.”

“I am so glad that you were recommended to me by the doctors at Access Medical. You and your staff helped me a lot, especially Katie, teaching me the exercises that I needed. All of he other staff members do a great job on my back especially Dr. Sferra when he adjusts by neck, etc. He truly cares about his profession and I can feel it in his hands. I highly recommend this facility to many people. P.S. Everyone is so caring! When I come in, I know that I’m getting all the proper treatment I really need. When I leave, I feel like a million bucks! May God bless you all.”
~Ralph J. Evans, Whitehouse Station, NJ
“My experience with NMR and the staff was incredible. They do everything they possibly can to make sure your needs are met and you are as comfortable as possible. I struggled with funds and they went above and beyond to accommodate me with this struggle. That is something that not many offices or practices even consider doing. You can tell that the staff are more concerned with the care of their patients, than the payment they receive. That doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for all that you have done for me. I greatly appreciate it!” ~Anonymous
“From my first visit the staff of caring professionals were helpful, clear, supportive and responsive to inquiry and concerns. The mood in the center is professional but also inviting and I appreciated the shared sense of humor in the difficult moments. My condition from pain and stiffness improved to pain-free plateaus two times, followed by increase in my challenges, which I recognize as good training and progress towards my goals. I would definitely recommend and refer friends and family and strangers, too, to the center.”
Melodie Somers ~ Somerset, NJ
“I have been coming to NMR for the past three months and feel much better than when I started. I came to NMR with chronic pain in my shoulder and hip that would wake me up at night and have me relying heavily on ant- inflammatory medications. The multiple therapies prescribed by Dr. Sferra of heat, electric muscle therapy, massage, mobility and exercise has almost eliminated the shoulder pain and greatly reduced the hip pain. The facility is nice and clean and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. It’s a great environment that I would highly recommend to anyone in need of PT.”

“Many thanks and appreciation to NMR for its collaborative approach in addressing an injury to my knee that I recently experienced after years of wear and tear. Dr. Jeremy is highly skilled, knowledgeable and engaging and he developed a sound strategy and plan of treatment that not only alleviated my knee pain, but also vastly improved the strength, function and mobility of my knee. Each session progressed and built upon the last session making the time commitment well worthwhile. The whole NMR staff, including Steve and Katie, were extremely helpful and supporting in me in achieving my goals. I am thrilled that I have been able to return to my regular fitness activities stronger than I was before and with the tools I need to prevent a recurrence. The holistic approach of NMR driven by Dr. Sferra provides a tremendous value to me and anyone in the community NMR serves and we are fortunate to have such a resource available.”

“After having a severe medical issue that lead to being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that was not manageable with conventional medicine, I was referred to NMR. I met with Dr. Sferra and decided to begin Biofeedback treatment. This decision changed everything. Sean was able to teach me ways to change how I responded to stress that worked for me and the things that were going on in my day to day life. Due to this, I was able to go off the medication I was using to manage the painful side effects of my disease and begin to feel better. I was able to sleep again because the pain wasn’t keeping me awake. I was also able to improve how I deal with an anxiety disorder I have struggled with for a long time by using the techniques he taught me.
I went from feeling pain and discomfort daily due to my diagnosis of gastroparesis to feeling like myself for the first time in months. My side effects had diminished and I could focus on the things I enjoyed again instead of just feeling like my goal was to just get through the day. If you’ve ever had consistent pain or discomfort, you know that it effects all aspects of your life and being able to manage that pain and allow my body to feel normal again after months where it felt so awful was so important.
Since starting at NMR, I have also had blood work and nutritional counseling with Dr. Kepko. Being able to address the nutritional needs I have due to my diagnosis is important to my well being. I learned how to eat better based on the things going on with my body. I was also able to discover that I had another autoimmune issue that I needed to be aware of and could begin doing things to be preventive of problems it could cause. After all I have been through, knowing what my body is up against and being able to take preventive measures is so important to me.
I have also been treated with PT for an injury I sustained while backpacking. While discussing my injury with Dr. Sferra, I asked him to look at another problem I had been having for many years but was unable to get a clear diagnosis on with my foot. When I went to PT, not only were they able to strengthen and heal my sprain, but they showed me exercises and cured me of the pain in my foot I had suffered with for years. Everyone I worked with during my time in PT was kind and helpful and they listened to me and helped me feel better than I did before I injured my ankle.
The staff I have worked with at NMR are incredible. They have given me the tools I need to regain control of my health and to go after some more athletic goals I have for the future. I am able to run again as well as participate in CrossFit exercises that push my body. Thanks to the treatment I have received, I am pain free and significantly stronger which is crucial for the goals I am trying to accomplish.”
