About Us

 

My name is Sally Mudd Chapman, R.N., L.M.T. and it will be helpful for me if I tell you something about my practice - The Human Touch.  I combine nursing and medical massage to rehabilitate soft tissue.  I use the science of applying specific pressure to various body parts in order to make them function better.  I have been trained in muscle pathology, exact location of tendons, nerves, organs, and in techniques to influence their functions.

I will be paying attention to circulation, lymphatic drainage, skin, facial, muscle tone, pain patterns, and all soft tissue.  Using my palpation skills, I work with body parts in order to make them function better.  Using the nursing process to discuss medications and pain management.

Some of the differences you may notice, I frequently spend a lot of time on the compromised area and may not do a full body massage.  While massage is relaxing, my emphasis is on treatment.  The goal is to have a plan, improve function, relieve pain, and lighten your body's demands.  Nursing/massage is powerful and affects the whole person, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.  

I use my medical knowledge of body processes, in both diseased and healthy people to treat injuries.  I will be adjusting my treatment to any disease or injury you may have, for example, headaches, fibromyalgia, back pain, herniated disc, arthritis, and motor vehicle accidents.  First, all patients will be evaluated by an RN/LMT with a medical history and a physical assessment. Range of motion, structure analysis, sites of pain, and review of systems.  Then using the Nursing Process of plan of treatment is developed and communicated.  Treatment is usually one to two times a week for 8-10 weeks, then we will reassess your progress.

Your body is your friend and can give you important information.  I will help you to learn to be body aware and how to relieve pain and tension for yourself.
