Welcome to Under Pressure Therapeutics, a Pain-Free Bodywork Clinic! We specialize in bodywork to help with not only chronic or acute pain and limited range of motion, but also post-injury or post-operation issues, athletic performance and recovery, and much more! That mainly includes modalities such as Deep Tissue Massage, Rehabilitative Massage, and Sports Massage. If you have a need for massage, we can probably fill it. We are here to help you with your needs. At Under Pressure Therapeutics, we strive to give you the massage you need, not necessarily the one you want; although, we do listen to you and adjust our techniques to fit with your needs and goals.


We are located at 1918 S Lemay Ave, Suite A, Fort Collins, CO 80525, and our New-Location map for more details and some tips on finding us.



We are always trying to figure out what will work best for our clients. For each client, we first must ask questions to figure out what modalities will fit your needs and aid in your health and wellness goals before we get started. This ensures that you will get the right massage for you. This also ensures that your health history will be taken into account and that the correct modalities will be used and the necessary precautions will be advised. We will determine if you need a Swedish Massage, a Deep Tissue Massage, more of a Sports Massage, or maybe you need some Rehabilitative Massage Therapy. Take a look at the Services page to see which therapist or modality might be best for you or Book Online.


We strive to educate our clientele about massage and other bodyworks that can really benefit their lives and continue to broaden their horizons and give them hope to know that there is a way out of pain and discomfort. Please check out our blog for our articles or our Massage is Good For…? tab to learn more about what you want to know. You can also email marissa@uptmassage.com if you have a topic you want to know more about.


Under Pressure Therapeutics was created by Marissa Orchard shortly after graduating from IBMC for Therapeutic Massage in May of 2010.  Fort Collins is a great place to be with many people who understand the benefits of regular deep tissue massage as well as those interested in taking care of issues through “alternative” medicine. (We say “alternative” because we feel that it is the best way to go for caring for oneself.) To find out more about our Therapists, please visit the Meet the Team page! Also, please note our Cancellation Policy.


Are you interested in having on-site chair massage at your work? Massage has been proven to increase cognitive function and productivity in the workplace. For more information, contact Marissa at marissa@uptmassage.com.


Under Pressure Therapeutics is based in The Orchard, which is handicapped accessible and has a parking lot, although you can park on the street as well.


If you have an Amazon Local, Living Social, or Groupon deal, please know that it is good with Justin, Eleanor, or Megan and can be booked online, by phone call, or by text. These deals are for a 60 minute or 90 minute Rehabilitative massage and cannot be used for other services. This offer is also only valid for new clients for the first massage. Any questions can be emailed to marissa@uptmassage.com.

  1. Is it posted somewhere on your site BEFORE pre-paying for a service that $ will not be refunded and you will only get massage credit?

    • It is not posted on the site. If you pre-pay for a service and schedule it but then need to reschedule, we can have it as a credit, or we can refund it. You should be able to schedule a massage without needing to pay for it.
