Chiropractic and Massage Therapy
Dr. Ginger has been interested in the healing arts as long as she can remember. Her first experiences with seeing how the power of touch was so beneficial was thanks to her Grandma, Louise. At the age of about ten, Ginger began working on her grandmother after supper on Sundays, as she suffered from terrible knee arthritis and foot pain. Louise would always say how much better she felt, and Ginger could even see the difference in the way she walked afterward. She was happy to do that for her, but never imagined it would turn into a profession.
After attending community college and getting her Associates in Liberal Arts, Dr. Ginger decided to move to Asheville, NC. She got a position with a Chiropractor as an assistant, and started working toward her degree in Massage Therapy. She graduated from The North Carolina School of Natural Healing in the summer of 2001. She worked under the wing of Drs. Brian and Tracy Gualano for a few years as their assistant and massage therapist, before deciding to attend Chiropractic school herself.
Dr. Ginger attended Logan University in St. Louis, MO, where she completed her Bachelors of Science in Human Biology in 2004 and then her Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2006. She decided to move back to the east coast, and chose her native state of Virginia to return to. Dr. Ginger has been practicing in Old Town, Alexandria since 2007. She has advanced training in Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Upper Cervical Technique, Whiplash, Aromatherapy and is currently working toward her 200 hour Yoga certification. Dr. Ginger is known for her thorough and gentle approach to Chiropractic care, often using methods that don’t involve popping or cracking.
