Maia

Founder/Owner

Meet Maia, founder of Neu Release. Maia is a native Chicagoan, living in Austin for the past 4 years. She is passionate about working with active people, who are interested in exploring their bodies in new ways. In her years of massage practice, she has worked exclusively alongside chiropractors, to develop her scientific and effective approach.

Colleen

Lead Therapist

Originally from Madison, WI, Colleen moved to Austin from Chicago seven years ago in pursuit of a new adventure. She completed her massage studies at Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in 2018, and her first job out of school was practicing deep tissue, myofascial, and sports massage techniques for pain relief.

Colleen’s experienced hands will leave you entranced, released of all tension, and completely open. Try Cupping with Colleen for a truly impactful experience of deeper and more effective release.

She loves doing deep, specific work, but she can also use her Craniosacral training to put you into a deep state of relaxation. She has advanced training in Cupping, Orthopedic, and Neurelease techniques, and is a certified Yoga instructor. Colleen loves working with people who are trying to get back into balance after an injury or time away from self-care, and those dealing with chronic neck and jaw tension. In her spare time she enjoys working in her garden and checking out live music around town.

Sara

Massage Therapist

Sara was born and raised in East Austin, Texas. Growing up in a hispanic household, it was the norm to visit "healers" when you experienced pain. This planted the seed growing eventually into her Dual license: Licensed Esthetician and Licensed Massage Therapist. A massage with Sara combines the magic and intuition of the healing arts with a scientific approach to pain relief.

Sara's favorite modalities include Swedish and Deep Tissue, for specific yet still relaxing massage. Her learning continues here, as she expands her skills in Neu Release, deep tissue, cupping, and hot-stones. She aspires to combine her culture with tried and true approaches to massage. In her free time, she enjoys time with her family and time alone to recharge.

Anna

Massage Therapist + Admin

Born and raised in North Carolina, Anna is a recent graduate from New Beginning School of Massage. Anna’s love for the body originally stems from figure drawing. As an artist, she found herself wanting to learn the muscles of the body before realizing her fascination was rooted in a desire to do body work. Anna’s training includes Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, and Neu Release.

In a massage with Anna, you can feel – in the enthusiasm and sincerity of her touch – that she truly cares. In her free time she loves being outside and making music.
