Marissa Orchard is the owner and founder of Under Pressure Therapeutics. She has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2010 since she received her Associate’s Degree from the Institute of Business and Medical Careers. Marissa has known her passion for rehabilitative massage long before she went to school for it.
Her older sister has been massaging Marissa since she was about 11 years old, but her passion for massage was truly sparked after she was involved in a head on car accident when she was 17. While she broke only one finger, the soft tissue damage was insurmountable. The damage and injury caused chronic and acute pain with a myriad of other conditions she would have to learn how to cope with for years to come. This experience opened Marissa to not only experience the true benefits of massage after an accident, but also the pains of chronic pain and injury recovery.
By using a combination of all of the techniques she has learned accompanied with experience and intuition, she knows how to deliver a personalized massage just for you. Marissa strongly believes that bodywork of all types has a time and place. She has trained her team to use the same unique combinations to deliver a great massage every time.
Marissa has taken a large step back from the hands on portion of massage therapy. She is confident that her team is the best and she will help you find which massage therapist is right for you.
