Purpose in Touch: Legacy Salon & Day Spa
Muscles have long memories. Deep within their tissue lies a record of built-up stress, which in turn can cause issues such as anxiety, poor sleep patterns, or low energy. But all of those issues can melt away once within Purpose in Touch's private treatment rooms, where soft music makes a relaxing soundtrack to Adrina Carter's Swedish massages.
Ms. Carter uses broad and flowing strokes throughout the body, employing extra pressure on problem areas, like that one toe that insists on doing its own thing. Other issues call for different modalities. For muscle spasms and pain, she relies on deep-tissue techniques. For athletes, she administers stretching and compression techniques during sports massages. Whatever the treatment type, Ms. Carter draws on an expertise honed in a 600-hour course in massage therapy as well as additional training in clinical massage and anatomy. She can also recommend a follow-up massage plan, such as monthly sessions.
