Luke Maynard, founder and head therapist of Therapeutic Release, graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2008. He uses his knowledge of physical anatomy and body movement to identify and correct muscular imbalances with three types of massage—anti-stress (Swedish), deep tissue, and sports.
Luke works alongside Samantha Troilo, a licensed massage therapist who specializes in anti-stress and deep-tissue massage. Personalizing her massage techniques for the individual client, she wants to be able to augment her massage therapy with therapeutic release.
Massage therapist Claire Nortz throws a new modality into the mix: Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, which involves delivering long, broad strokes and firm pressure with her feet. She also relies on acupressure, trigger-point release, and stretching to release muscle tension and boost mobility.
