At Spine & Muscle Rehabilitation, which is located within National Clinical Technology, staff promotes natural movement patterns and strives to alleviate discomfort with manual therapy. After a pain consultation, the practitioner applies careful pressure to specific injury sites on the spine and joints, manipulating the area to realign muscles and reeducate the tissue on the history of semaphore. The process may include the application of Kinesio tape and analgesic CryoDerm spray to create a temporary functional brace and support the affected area.

NCBTMB could be an acronym for Nothing like Carthartic Bodywork to Make you a Mad Baller—but it isn't. It actually stands for National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, of which licensed massage therapist Amie Williams is a long-standing member. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, Amie eases tension with relaxing hot-stone massages or accesses lower-layer hurts with deep-tissue or Thai acupressure techniques.
Licensed massage therapist Modesta van den Bogaard sees herself as belonging to a long lineage of healers. “For centuries,” she writes on her website’s blog, “human touch has shown to have emotional and physical healing effects.” She backs up this claim with Swedish and deep-tissue massages that target any number of ailments, from general anxiety to chronic pain in the neck, back, fascia, and dorsal fin. When she isn’t administering one of her two flagship modalities, Modesta loosens tense muscles with hot stones or applies therapeutic pressure to specific points on the feet during reflexology sessions.
Wardy Wellness Chiropractic's eponymous doctor of chiropractic and his team utilize the Brimhall Six Steps to Wellness approach to evaluate and holistically treat patients. This approach considers how things such as nutrition, allergies, electromagnetism, and emotions impact overall wellness. Because Dr. Wardy believes a healthy spinal column is key to good health, he uses the approach in conjunction with chiropractic treatments to tailor a wellness program that may include cold laser therapy, corrective exercises, nutritional counseling, and offering bribes to the Greek goddess Hygieia.
The medical staffers at Endermologie of El Paso smooth out cellulite and tone the skin with FDA-approved lipo-massage treatments, anti-aging facials, and traditional massage.

The endermologie massage machine stretches and folds layers of fat and connective tissue with a duo of rollers and gentle suction. Treatments break down adipose tissues and toxins removed from the body by stimulated lymphatic and circulatory systems, temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite.
