EARTH DAY – SATURDAY APRIL 22
Earlier this year we had our annual team forward where every department comes together as a team and talk about things that matter to us as individuals, our community, and our guests. Our special guest, Wei-Tai Kwok who is a part of Al Gore’s Climate Change Reality Project, spoke to us about climate change and what we can do to reduce our impact on the planet.
One of the ways we collectively minimize our footprint is by choosing products that give great results and are developed to be environmentally friendly. KEVIN.MURPHY, a favorite of our team and our guests, searches the world for their ingredients, seeking companies that use micro cultivation, organic growing practices, or ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure the highest quality and lowest impact on the environment. Kevin, the man behind KEVIN.MURPHY is an official Climate Reality Project Presenter! He contributes a portion of select product sales directly to The Climate Reality Project to lessen our overall global carbon footprint.
As if that isn’t doing enough to help our planet, Kevin also said, “We make every effort to do our part to help the environment by utilizing packaging that is recyclable or biodegradable. We use natural ingredients from sources that are sustainable and renewable and are harvested utilizing methods that do not cause any harm to the environment.”
Here are a few of Team Changes favorite KEVIN.MURPHY products-
Mariela’s fave – The new Shimmer Shine – “I love it because it smells good, helps maintain frizz and it adds mega shine for dry hair, I like to spray it on dry curly hair!”
Lindsey’s fave – Young Again Oil – “I love the oil because it is a treatment oil, you can use it in wet or dry hair. It absorbs invisibly into the hair leaving it silky shiny and soft.”
Ariana’s fave – Night Rider – “I love it because it’s medium to strong hold depending on whether you apply it to wet or dry hair. It has a matte finish that my guests love and it smells really good. The best part is you can’t see it in the hair and it never flakes”

Some people think of massage as a luxury, a pampering experience… they are not wrong but there is much more to Massage Therapy. Massage is effective for stress relief, pain alleviation and relaxation. It is beneficial for people living with conditions including fibromyalgia and arthritis. Massage is appropriate for just about anyone- healthy adults, seniors, pregnant women and athletes.*
The gift of massage is appreciated by those who are regular clients and an opportunity for those who are new to massage to experience relief they may have needed for a long time.
1. The Gift of Stress Relief
The holidays are filled with family, friends, fun, food and gifts. For some all those wonderful things can bring stress, anxiety and exhaustion. Massage Therapy calms the nervous system and provides an oasis of respite from the holiday frenzy.
2. The Gift of Pain Removal
From hanging the lights, putting up the tree and digging through boxes in the attic to find Hanukkah candles, decorating can cause strain, sprain and pain. A massage addresses pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and releasing knots and tight spots from muscles.
3. The Gift of Raised Spirits
The holidays aren’t jolly for everyone; family conflict, feelings of grief and other mood-stressors can arise, even in the midst of celebration. Massage is a mood booster. The release of the feel-good hormone, oxytocin, is increased during massage, as is the release of serotonin and dopamine.
4. The Gift of Ease
Give yourself the gift of a super-simple present purchase. You can order a print-at-home/email gift certificate here. You may also choose to order online and pick up your gift at Changes. The pick-up option allows you to take advantage of our Holiday Specials.
There are many types of Massage, learn more…
*Always check with your doctor before your massage appointment if you are pregnant or have a medical condition.
