A team of experienced doctors of chiropractic and assistants consult with patients and devise treatment plans to minimize chronic aches or health issues. ProAdjuster technology works to analyze the motion of vertebrae, and staff perform Graston Technique treatments with a set of specialized instruments that adjust muscles and tendons.
Helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Ambrose, who has been featured as a chiropractic expert on WTVR-6, WRIC-8, and WWBT-12, Completely Natural Chiropractic sets spines straight with comprehensive treatment plans customized to each individual’s needs. Ambrose, a second-generation chiropractor, practices a philosophy that centers on conservative hands-on care, and Richmond-area physicians regularly refer patients to him for gentle, targeted spinal adjustments. Along with adjustments, he also uses massage therapy and prescribed stretches to assist clients with pain relief and recovery—especially if the recovery is from a limbo tournament and you’re 11 feet tall.

For eight years, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Mulvaney ignored his chronic back pain and continued to play sports. He recalls a doctor once dismissing his nagging discomfort as “growing pains,” but his suffering persisted through his teenage years. When he reached college and a friend recommended that he visit a chiropractor, he jumped at the chance. Within three visits, he was pain-free.
This experience planted the seed that eventually grew into Dr. Mulvaney’s career as a chiropractor. Today, he helms Spinal Correction Center of Richmond, where he and his staff offer a combination of holistic chiropractic care and massage therapy. Dr. Mulvaney favors the Pettibon system of chiropractic care, which works to restore the spine’s natural curvature and normalize misalignments that may cause pain, stiffness, or unfair limbo advantages.
Deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Swedish massage are just a few of the modalities that therapists perform at VA Health Massage. They also offer medical massage, a technique designed to treat conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor, which focuses only on injured areas. To further relaxation, any massage can be enhanced with aromatherapy and hot towels or by politely asking all ghosts to leave the room.
Licensed therapist and founder of Eye Intuitive Cheyenne Mcquilkin applies her deft hands and 14 years of experience to assuage achy muscles and joints with a vast array of massage modalities. During Swedish massages, Cheyenne delivers long, gliding strokes of medium pressure to ease muscles into a state of relaxation similar to stretching out in a recliner on a bunk bed. Deep-tissue massage incorporates similar strokes to those of the Swedish modality, but delves deeper into soft tissue, introducing cross-grain pressures to extract embedded muscle knots and break apart adhesions.
