our mission

At Written on the Body we strive to create a calm and healing atmosphere for massage and acupuncture to make each and every client leave their treatment feeling transformed. In this world full of stresses and limited time to take care of ourselves, we realize how important the moments that our clients spend here really are.

We love what we do and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to incorporate complimentary therapies into their health care plan.

our story

Written on the Body was founded by Julie Campbell, a Licensed Massage Therapist, OR#15892. Julie was born and raised in a small Indiana town full of cows, cornfields and amazing people.

She always had itchy feet and at the ripe young age of 23 she and her 4 year old daughter Lexxi drove cross country to their damp new home in Olympia,WA. After graduating from The Evergreen State College with a BA in Psychology Julie and Lexxi still had a bad case of wandering souls and so they and their amazing friend Rosey caught a plane to St. Thomas in the USVI.

Paradise, yes in many ways it was! While there Julie met up with a new friend who was always coming up with fun new ways to make money named Jessica. Jessica and Julie formed a little business doing hand and foot massages for tourists on the beach, Coki Beach to be exact, and that is where this all began.

After two years in the islands the ladies once again felt the winds pulling at their sleeves so onward they went. Eventually they landed in Portland, OR where Julie’s dream was able to blossom into reality. Written on the Body Massage and Acupuncture has become a place of peace and healing for the community of North and Northeast Portland with compassionate and skilled therapists who truly love what they do.

“This is my all time favorite place to get a massage! The hot stone treatments are my favorite but I have tried several styles and several therapists and I have always been very pleased and left feeling very relaxed. The essential oil add on is very relaxing also. I would highly recommend Written on the Body Massage..they are at the top of my massage list!” -Julia Mortlock, ND, LAc November 19th, 2013

“It was a great experience. I particularly appreciated the wiping off of most of the oil on my back with a hot cloth. That’s one part of getting a massage I don’t much like, usually – putting my clothes on over the oil – so that helped a lot and was a really nice touch. Thanks for a great massage too!” – October 19, 2012
