Blue Ridge Clinic’s licensed massage therapist, Tera Broughton, specializes in restorative modalities for women. Clients sprawl atop flannel sheets and warm blankets to unwind amongst soft lighting and the relaxing sounds of a waterfall or a running toilet. Tera intersperses each massage with deep-tissue and Swedish strokes and uses unscented lotions, though clients can opt to bring their own creams, oils, or cake frostings.
Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic
Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic’s founder, James Whittle, has not only studied Chinese medicine under healers such as Dr. Tran Viet Dzung—he has lectured on the topic in China. He shares his expertise at his clinic, where he inserts hair-like needles painlessly throughout the body to alleviate ailments such as chronic pain, the common cold, and the even-more-common isolated sniffle. Traditional herbal remedies, such as an herbal weight-loss formula, complement these treatments, as do integrative massages from licensed massage therapist Tera Broughton. She targets aches and pains with personalized mixes of modalities such as reflexology, deep-tissue, and scalp massage.
