Auld Lang Syne


I’m so happy and grateful for each of you, for becoming or returning as a client! This work we do TOGETHER sustains me, heart and soul. I thank you from the depths for allowing me into your lives AND for giving my hands as gifts to those you love. There is no greater measure of success, for me, than when you spend your hard earned dollars on self care or the care of others, with my little practice.

I am half way through celebrating 15 years doing what I love and I’m fairly certain this is the best year of work yet. I feel focused and present and devoted like never before. Many of you are members of The Massage-a-Month Club and are enjoying the benefits of regular massage therapy. High Five yourselves on making an excellent choice! I’m thrilled to have set and reached a goal for helping my community “Feel Better”, one body at a time. Will you help me spread the word to fill my final push by sharing your reasons for joining the club? You can do that a few different ways! Check in to social media when you arrive or leave a session (look for Christina Massage on your smart device), grab a stack of biz cards from me and pass them around to your tribe, coworkers, etc, and, I’m gathering client testimonials and I would so value yours! Just send me your story in an email and please let me know what part of your identity you’re comfortable sharing, i.e; C. Ryan-Stoltz or CRS Or Christina Ryan-Stoltz or A Happy Customer in Frankfort MI or Father of 4 in Beulah, or whatevs. Send those to, please & thank you!

If you haven’t already, be sure to schedule your January session! And speaking of January!!! I like the practice of setting an intention whenever I step into a new way/new time, and New Years is such a potent time for leaning into our intentions, allowing us to just be with our hope rather than wishing for a future outcome. Some examples are:

  • Marking a threshold of some kind; a beginning or ending of how you’ve shown up in the world in a journey, a career, a relationship or a turning point in your life.
  • An apprenticeship TO something; learning about your spirit guide or the trees on your land or the history of your hometown.
  • Calling In or Letting Go of something or someone.
  • A clear and OUT LOUD declaration that you are finished with a habitual or too small way of being in the world.

All my best to you, whatever your intentions may be. I wish you love & light & hope throughout 2017, a new year already so ripe with possibility.

A deep bow~


“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” C. Joybell C.
