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.
