Trained massage therapist Deborah Carter uses her more than 25 years of experience to customize massages for each client using an array of modalities. She aims to help heal and relax the client using everything from traditional Swedish strokes to the firmer kneads of a Russian sports massage. Carter is also trained in the Vodder Method of manual lymph drainage, which she relies on to detoxify the body of impurities and excess water being stored in buckets on the knees.
Carter performs these relaxing sessions at Townsend and Company Salon and Spa, where wood-covered ceilings and exposed-brick walls give the modern salon an organic feel, and the dimly lit treatment rooms create a cocoon of comfort for clients to recharge or molt away their caterpillar shell.

Custom parties might include manicures, hairstyling, airbrush tattoos, ice cream and candy stations, a cupcake bar, or even karaoke. And, in addition to catering to younger guests, Tantrums is also available for sweet 16 parties where guests can indulge in age-appropriate spa services and pose in a photo booth.
