Written on the Body is turning 4 years old!

It’s spring and you know what that means:  We just turned 4 years old and we are as happy as pigs in a peach orchard!  It has been a wild and beautiful ride full of community building, fun having, dream making, abundance and all sorts of sometimes difficult and always incredible changes.

Thinking about the last four years I can only smile and be amazed at the fact that this passion of mine has become something beyond my imaginings, something so great that it has morphed into a living entity.

A true community of the crem de la crem, people who know that they are the kings and queens of their own making, deciding exactly what life and health look like for them.  I am always inspired, always feeling loved and renewed by my part in this wonderful place of healing and creativity.  Forever learning from the clients, co-workers and neighbors of  Written on the Body that fill my days.  My wish is that we offer you these same opportunities when you enter the doors of Written on the Body through our honest love for our trades:  massage, acupuncture, Feldenkrais, art, plant life, products and so many other creative adventures.  My goal has always been and will always be to create a space in this crazy busy life that is just for you: for you to get exactly what you need for peace, wholeness and optimal health in any given moment.  Thank you for allowing all of us at Written on the Body to be part of your world and for making us so much better along the way:)  Speaking of:  Why not take our short 3 question survey and help shape our future!

Join us for our 4 year birthday celebration on April 24th at 6pm!  Get the deets by joining our Facebook event or just keep an eye on your email.  Hope to see you there:)

Now for the fun part-A little stroll down memory lane:

We opened in March of 2010 at a smaller location on 29th and Alberta
29th and Alberta Space

You may remember our first location if you have been with us for a while!

We even had outdoor massage on our patio at our old location-obviously we love massage out doors:)

We also love Last Thursday (2011) and Katie’s plants of course

In May of 2012 we moved to our new location on NE 13th and Alberta Streets!

We had an incredible time at the Alberta Street Fair offering free massage to our community in these last two years at our new location:)

About the artist:  Masha Falkov

Masha is a sweet, creative and unique individual.  I had the pleasure of meeting Masha at written on the body massage and acupuncture’s previous location when she happened in from Bitch Media’s lending library.  The first thing I noticed about her was her amazing hat, rimmed with glass vials containing everything from candy nerds to bones!  Since then Masha has shown her beautiful artwork at written on the body many times.  Masha’s work is very unique and detail oriented, if you stare at one of her creations you will see worlds within worlds and beyond.  Even if her “psychedelic” style isn’t normally your cup of tea, I can guarantee that you will find something to enjoy at this month’s open house event!
