At Blue Ridge Chiropractic, licensed chiropractor Earl R. Hedrick and his staff eschew medication as they thwart bodily aches with hands-on services. Prior to each treatment, they meet with patients to unearth the sources of pain and hammer out a course of action that may range from spinal alignment to education in pain management without the use of drugs or puppy photos. For ailments ranging from arthritis to sports injury, the staff may suggest lifestyle changes as well as performing decompressions, acupuncture, and massages from certified massage therapist Samantha Williams.

The certified therapists behind Escape Massage knead away curmudgeonly knots seven days a week inside 10 private and two couples massage rooms. Three-inch high-density foam massage tables cushion bodies while warm waves of heat fend off goose bumps as they disperse through fitted cotton-flannel sheets and quiet heaters. After therapists dim the wall sconces, they manipulate sinews with Swedish massage techniques, and optional deep-tissue, aromatherapeutic, and hot-stone techniques, concluding each session with hot towels upon request. Escape Massage also provides prenatal massage tables, which come with specially designed padding and pillows that allow moms-to-be to lay face-down and solicit parenting advice from Mother Earth. Escape Massage is open 7 days a week.
Though trained in a variety of pain-melting strokes, The Spine and Injury Center’s state-certified therapists specialize in the penetrative kneads of deep-tissue massage. The company believes that massages should serve a functional purpose, so the therapists use their keenly trained hands or tentacles to specifically seek out and delve into muscles plagued with chronic pain due to overexertion or medical conditions. To lead the therapists’ hands, The Spine and Injury Center of Fredericksburg allows patients to begin therapeutic massages with an evaluation by a licensed chiropractor to determine what modality and specific areas of focus would best suit the client.
