Massage therapy in El Paso, TX

Massage Therapy

When searching for massage therapy in El Paso, Texas, you want to be sure that you are getting treatment that is worth your time. Almost all massage parlors employ licensed massage therapists, but they may not have the experience in specialized treatments that can help provide you with effective relief. The Trawood office of Border Therapy Services offers specialized massage therapy services to meet the needs of our patients.

Benefits of massage therapy

Massage therapy differs from a massage received in the spa in that there is a specific rehabilitative goal for the treatment. The massage may not feel like a gentle relaxing touch, but it does have many benefits including:

  • Reducing tension and inflammation
  • Increasing circulation and blood flow to promote the body’s own natural healing process
  • Improving posture to counteract the strain of sitting at our desks all day
  • Reducing stress levels which can give the body’s immune system a boost

Specialized massage therapy treatments

The advantage of scheduling massage therapy with Border Therapy Services is that we have physical therapists who are experts in specialized treatments that can help relieve pain and tension.

  • Myofascial release Also known as trigger point therapy, myofascial release works to relieve tension by focusing directly on the pain point. Pressure with the hand or fingers is applied directly to the aggravated area. This pressure is meant to elicit a twitch response in the muscle which can then relax easing tension.
  • Dry needling While related to the eastern medical practice of acupuncture, dry needling uses western principles and knowledge of the musculoskeletal system to provide relief. When a pain point is too deep to be released with the therapist’s hands, dry needling is an excellent alternative. The thin, sterile needle is placed directly into the muscle to activate the body’s twitch response to cause the muscle to relax.
