Our Ethos
Massage. Recover. Restore.

Our belief is that while your needs may change each visit, our personal touch doesn’t.

What we mean by ‘touch’

Touch is a sacred form of communication. We know that you are trusting our touch will be safe and healing. Our therapists are trained to correct muscle imbalances and promote relaxation.

What we mean by ‘customized experience’

Each massage is unique. One day your back may be the focus and another day your feet. Regardless of your concern we offer a specific plan to address that concern and help facilitate the healing that your body needs and deserves.

We offer a range of treatment options to suit your needs. Explore whats available to you.

– Our team

Building the right team takes time. We carefully vet, evaluate, and train our therapists in the ‘Tocar Way’ before they are allowed to treat our clients.

Our methodology is rooted in the customer experience. We aim to provide a perfect balance of relaxation and therapy into each session. This approach allows us to treat each client and each session as unique, and to honor that session with the absolute best we can offer.

We have expanded our services into the digital world. You are now able to experience Tocar from the convenience and comforts of your own home. See what wellness options are available to access, no matter where you are.

Russell Carollo, LMT

Russell is a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Russell finds sessions to be especially engaging when focusing on specific target areas using deep tissue massage, but he is also always happy to give relaxing full-body Swedish massages. Having been exposed to a variety of massage modalities throughout his training, he additionally finds himself drawn to myofascial techniques as well as The Trager Approach, and he incorporates concepts about movement and stretching from those styles into his work.

Born and raised in Howard County, Russell is excited to share his love of bodywork with his local community, and brings with him a sense of empathy, passion, and endless curiosity!
