Should I get a massage?

should I get massage?

Have you ever thought to yourself “Should I get a massage?” If so then this post is for you!

If you are experiencing any of the following issues then massage is definitely right for you:

  • First and most important is that you enjoy being touched and find it comforting

  • If you have a serious medical condition or specific concern surrounding massage you should get clearance from your doctor before making an appointment

  • You live a high stress lifestyle and have limited time for yourself-massage can be a great way to reward yourself for working so hard and can help you feel renewed after giving so much to your job/family/friends/business etc…

  • You experience chronic pain-often times people believe they have to live with pain but this is not always the case!  Regular massage treatments can help relieve or at the very least lessen chronic pain cycles.

  • You have tension headaches-massage can help loosen the muscles of the head neck and jaw to help you find release from the tension that causes headaches

  • You have a difficult time relaxing or shutting off your mind-massage, especially certain types of massage such as Thai and hot stone can be very effective in helping you wind down and find inner peace.

  • You are prone to injury involving pulled muscles and tears-massage truly can help unravel those long time patters of muscle tightness that eventually leads to injury.  It is no magic pill but with regular treatments and a good self care routine you will find that you can become more balanced.

These are just a few of the reasons massage might be a good fit for you!  If you have questions about your particular situation please feel free to drop me a line via email at  I will look forward to hearing from you!  Ready to book?  Head to our online booking site and set your appointment today:  Written on the Body Massage and Acupuncture Studio

They are such a sweet and talented group and well they are all just so dang cute:)  We decided to celebrate them with a little dinner party the other night and thought we would share a few of the fun moments with you:


We love our neighborhood and decided to go with snacks from our fave Bollywood Theater! So yummy


We are gearing up for our favorite downtime game: Cards Against Humanity


Alexandra’s last day is next week and we wanted to send her off to baby land in style! Written on the baby style-lol! She also got the cutest hand made tiny owl hat from our receptionist Carly. We are really going to miss Alex!



Great times were had and we were all reminded of why we love where we are and what we are privileged enough to do for a living.  We hope you love our team as much as we all love you!  Have a lovely week and we hope to see your beautiful faces soon:)

What is acupuncture?

What is Acupuncture?

what is acupuncture

Here is a short list to help you understand what acupuncture is:

  • An important component of traditional Chinese Medicine

  • An ancient healing tradition that is at least 2500 years old

  • A technique that uses thin needles that are inserted into specific points on the body to help bring the qi (flow of energy or life force) into balance, the balance of qi is believed to be essential for health in traditional Chinese Medicine

AND what it is good for:

  • Pain of all sorts!  Acupuncture results vary depending on the person and situation (just like any form of medicine) but it is a safe addition to or alternative to any western treatment

  • Nausea

  • Fertility

  • Increasing circulation and a general sense of ease and well-being

  • Injuries

  • Quitting habits

  • Stage fright! Who knew?

  • And so much more!  If you have an issue or a goal the chances are very good that your acupuncturist can help you.
