About Valinda "Vinny" Dodson, RN, BSN, LMT

Valinda “Vinny” Dodson of Artius Integrative Medicine in Great Falls, Virginia, is a lifelong native of the D.C. area. Her passion for alternatives to traditional medicine started more than 25 years ago when she received her massage therapy training. Vinny then put that to work helping Olympic level gymnasts train, recover, and reach peak performance. She traveled with the team before returning to private practice focusing on pain management. Vinny is also a Reiki practitioner as well as numerous other massage modalities.

After working as a very high-level massage therapist Vinny returned to school at Shenandoah University to become a registered nurse. As an RN she worked in the mother/baby unit at Virginia Hospital Center. She was able to augment her classical nurse training alongside her holistic approaches to pain. Vinny continued to hone her skills by adding Hypnotherapy, EMDR, and more. Artius provides her a very unique opportunity to work alongside like-minded professionals with a passion for patient care.

When she is not at work Vinny is still caring for her husband of almost 30 years and their four grown children. She loves a good walk with the family's three dogs or an afternoon at the ballpark enjoying a cold beer and watching the Nationals.
