Young Living with some Basics

I just want to talk about some of the oils that I use in my everyday life, and why.
Stress Away. Who doesn’t have stress? This calming blend uplifts as well as calms. It’s a mix of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender, and it really invites peace and tranquility. I put it on my shoulders, as I often feel stress there before anywhere else.
Patchouli relaxes and decreases inflammation. It can clarify thoughts and help you discard insecurities. It can also be used as a dietary aid. I put it on my collar bones, just a little bit.
Valor is one of my all-time favorites! The blend empowers and encourages while keeping you feeling grounded. I put it on my feet to keep me grounded, or on my throat when I feel like I need extra help communicating.
Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint are my bread an butter. If I had to choose only 3 oils, these 3 would be it! Lavender is calming and helps with cuts, scrapes, and bruises; lemon is super detoxifying; peppermint helps with soreness, headaches, and more. I’ll put a drop of lemon and peppermint in hot water if I’m having a stomach ache. I’ll put a drop of lavender on my joints when they are achy or over my heart if I’m getting anxious.
If you had to only choose one oil, it would be Thieves. This combination of oils got its name because during the dreaded plague, spice traders would dip their bandanas in a combination similar to this and wrap their faces with it to prevent getting the plague while they broke into houses that had been boarded up because of infected people and steal their valuables. These thieves would not get sick! Young Living has a whole line of Thieves products. I use the oil as a dietary supplement if I’m getting sick or the spray in my throat if I’m getting sick. I use the toothpaste and the mouthwash. I also have the household cleaner you can use for stoves, countertops, and my husband has even used it to clean his car tires! The possibilities are endless.
Young Living also has a line of supplements, products, and recently launched a line called Vitality, which is specifically designed for dietary and cooking use.

Find a Licensed Massage Therapist

We are proud of each of us being a Licensed Massage Therapist with the State of Colorado. Why? What are the benefits of seeing a Licensed Massage Therapist?
Not every state regulates the Massage Therapy profession. Each state also has different requirements for someone to get licensed as a Massage Therapist. Many states require a certain amount of continuing education in order to renew a license. The state of Colorado requires 500 hours of education and for an individual to take the MBLEx, the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam.
The MBLEx is a standardized test that challenges each aspiring Massage Therapist on their knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology, Kinesiology, Pathology, Psychology, Client Assessment and Treatment, Massage Modalities, Ethics, Boundaries, and Guidelines for Professional Practice. This is a huge exam that most Massage Therapists have stressed over for months before taking it. In order to take the exam, you have to show proof that you’ve attended an accredited school for Therapeutic Massage and that your education meets the state requirements.

We only employ Licensed Massage Therapists at Under Pressure Therapeutics for many reasons. Having the state licensure ensures that each Licensed Massage Therapist has received a certifiable education with appropriate hands-on training. Each Licensed Massage Therapist has not only dedicated a minimum of 500 hours to learning about the history, application, and contraindications of massage treatments, but has also taken a rigorous test proving the knowledge learned, understands the ethical and professional practices of a Licensed Massage Therapist, and is committed to continuing their individual education on Therapeutic Massage, Ethics, and different bodywork modalities to deliver the most comprehensive and thorough massage treatment for the individual need.
That’s a lot of technical jargon for why we employ Licensed Massage Therapists! Simply put: A Licensed Massage Therapist takes their career as a Massage Therapist seriously. We don’t let people just lie down and let us hurt them–each technique we use has a purpose to help you reach whatever goal you have in mind for your massage. We are professional. We are educated. We are dedicated.
Working with chronic pain, injury and surgery recovery, and other issues require us to know what we need to do. We cannot have someone working for us who doesn’t know how to massage someone with hardware in their neck or back, someone with fibromyalgia, or an adrenaline junkie who has had so many injuries it’s surprising that that person is still alive! With each injury or surgery, each massage is different, and we have to employ Licensed Massage Therapists who know how to handle those different aspects of the field.
We truly take pride in what we do and we really love what we do. That’s why we specialize in Deep Tissue Massage. We aren’t your cucumbers-on-the-eyes day spa; we are Under Pressure Therapeutics, Fort Collins’ Deep Tissue Massage Clinic.
