Sally M. Chapman, R.N., L.M.T.

 

I practice medical massage which is the science of applying specific pressure to various body parts in order to make them function better. Using my palpation skills I work with body parts in order to make them function better. Using my palpation skills I work with skin, fascia, blood vessels, muscles and all body systems to improve total health. While massage is relaxing, my emphasis is on healing. 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.
