Massage therapist Tera Broughton kneads her female clients’ frames with an integrative style, fusing disciplines such as deep-tissue reflexology, trigger-point therapy, and Thai massage to target each client’s specific aches and pains. Soothing music and low lighting create a relaxing atmosphere as she works, and warm blankets augment the comfort level. For more information, see her website.
In addition to the massage, clients also receive a free health assessment from accupuncturist James Whittle. James interviews clients about their general health, examines tongues, checks pulses, and makes a diagnosis based in the philosophy of Chinese medicine. Depending on his findings, James may prescribe treatments such as acupuncture or herbal medicine.

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.
