What is Body Tempering?

Body Tempering uses weighted rollers on your muscles to:

  • reduce muscle soreness

  • enhance mobility

  • alleviate soreness

Why is this important?

  • better movement during your workout

  • improved muscle recruitment for greater strength and speed

  • faster recovery between workouts, ensuring peak performance for your next training session

  • reduced risk of injury

  • better posture

How heavy are the tools? Does it hurt?

The tools range from as little as 4lbs to as heavy as 110lbs+.  They are carefully chosen based on your tolerance, the specific area of the body to be tempered and the amount of tissue involved.

Body Tempering should never hurt. It should feel like a moderate pressure, typically around a 7/10 intensity level, with 0 being "I can't feel anything" and 10 being "get this thing off me"

Is Body Tempering new? 

Body Tempering has been around for decades but is growing in popularity and is used by many professional athletes including those in the MLB and NFL. 

Donnie Thompson, a world record Powerlifter who became the first person to total 3000lbs in competition, developed Body Tempering. He used this recovery and mobility tool throughout his career, which undoubtably contributing to his remarkable success and longevity.

Who is it for?

Whether you're a competitive lifter, a fitness enthusiast dealing with tightness or mobility issues, or you have a sedentary job and posture concerns, Body Tempering can benefit you.

However, there are specific conditions, like osteoporosis, where Body Tempering should be avoided. Dr. Sarah conducts a comprehensive assessment to ensure it's a safe option for you and that no underlying conditions pose a risk.

  • Do you take my insurance?
    We are only in-network with Medicare Part B, otherwise we do not directly take insurance. Working as a self-pay model enables us to offer you highly personalized 1:1 care free from insurance limitations. We are able to spend completely 1:1 time with you and not push you off to unlicensed people, which is often the case at most insurance-based clinics. Dr. Sarah knows from experience that exercises need to be taught with intention and catered to your specific injury including making on the spot modifications if something isn't feeling right. Treating multiple patients at once and having unlicensed people run the exercise component of your PT session is simply ineffective at accomplishing this. Because Dr. Sarah can spend her undivided attention with you, it allows for intentional rehab with extensive education about what your condition is and how to tackle it. So much gets done in a single session that usually results in quicker recovery and significantly fewer sessions required. All of this adds up to long-term cost savings. We will provide you with everything you need to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement. Additionally, we do accept HSA and FSA cards for payment.
  • What are your prices for physical therapy?
    The evaluation is $150 and is around 60 minutes long. Follow-Ups are usually an hour long and are $125. If needed, 30 minute ($62.50) and 90 minute ($187.50) are also available. Packages of 4 and 8 sessions are available at a slightly discounted rate.
  • How will I know if I get reimbursed?
    We recommend you call your insurance and ask them "What are my Out-of-Network Physical Therapy Benefits." You should find out if you have a deductible to meet first, and in rare cases, if authorization is needed, which we can obtain for you if it is required. In some instances, your IN and OUT of network deductibles can cross accumulate, meaning credit for one goes towards both which can help you meet your deductible and get reimbursed sooner. From here, the reimbursement rate of your insurance for an out-of-network physical therapy session may or may not be equal to what we charge. It is easy to upload and submit the receipts to your insurance, and within a week or two you should find out if they reimbursed you.
  • Do I need to see a doctor or have a prescription to come see you?
    A prescription is only necessary if you have Medicare. Otherwise, New Jersey has direct access laws allowing patients to see a physical therapist without a doctor's referral or imaging. Physical Therapists are specially trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions and will refer you back to a physician if needed at any point during the rehab process. However, this often not needed and saves you time.
  • How is Stronger Performance Physical Therapy different from other PT clinics?
    In most physical therapy clinics, therapists spend 15 minutes or less with you, often while overseeing multiple other patients and then pass you off to an aide or student to go through exercises. The frequency of visits is typically 2-3 times per week for several months, and access to weights and equipment may be limited. At Stronger Performance Physical Therapy, you work one-on-one with Dr. Sarah for a full hour, with a customizable plan tailored to your needs. During your session, you are her only patient and sole focus. Treatment usually includes manual therapy to improve flexibility, correct alignment, and relieve pain. She guides you through every exercise, ensuring you target the right area and understand how each exercise will help you. We have a fully equipped gym with plenty of weights and equipment. You often need fewer sessions and less frequently. You also have access to Dr. Sarah via phone or email even between your sessions. Patients report significantly greater satisfaction with this level of care, and so does Dr. Sarah!
