The Health Links staff consists of a nutrition coach, a wellness coach, massage therapists, an acupuncturist, and four chiropractors—one of whom was named a Top Doc of 2012 by Richmond Magazine. Together, this team of holistic healers aims to create a friendly atmosphere where clients wait a maximum of 15 minutes to be seen and technicians educate patients on the benefits of treatments ranging from advanced cranial-sacral therapy to natural cures for ADHD.
Guests relax in Health Link’s modern waiting area lined with cushioned chairs and flat-screen TVs before heading back to a chiropractic room outfitted with advanced equipment and plush treatment beds. Health Link also boasts private treatment rooms for massage-therapy sessions as well as a tranquil yoga studio where experienced instructors help students strengthen bodies with one-hour yoga sessions or untie limbs that get tangled after they spin all reds during a game of Twister.
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.
