Testimonial by Chris Young

My Fiance and I had a couples deep tissue massage at Changes on 2/22/15. It was my first deep tissue massage and it was simply awesome! I felt like a new person. The areas I had that were tight are now loose! I was able to stand up and go right into palm-to-the floor touch with zero lower back or hamstring tightness. Tammy had similar great things to say about her massage too. Thank you so much Changes, we will definitly be back.

Just got done casting my vote for Simply the Best in Harrisburg Magazine!


An Oncology Massage Treatment is a modification of traditional massage techniques designed to safely work with the special needs of clients with cancer as well as the complications from cancer treatments.

Research suggests that have massage regularly can help cancer patients cope with the side effects of treatments and improve their mental and physical ability to deal with the pain, stress, and anxiety that are often associated with cancer and it's treatments.

Patients who receive cancer care from those in active treatment to those in remission are best served by a Massage Therapist trained in Oncology Massage. A doctor's approval is recommended prior to a massage. The forms are available at our front desk and soon to be posted on our website for download.

I just had to gush (again) about the fantastic experience I had at Changes on Saturday, 9/21. I came in for a bikini wax with Tammy. During the course of our conversation, I told her that I was having some issues with my back and wondered if there could possibly be any massage openings. While I was getting dressed, Tammy arranged to have the on call massuese (Laurence - my new hero) come in to get me a much needed massage. He was there in a matter of minutes. I was just so impressed with your amazing level of customer service that I had to tell you again!! I've been a big fan of the day spa for a long time. I will never stop telling people this story. Thanks so much!! Julie Kemper

I cannot properly express what Changes has done for me. I discovered Changes when I went to schedule collagen induction therapy prior to my elopement. I’ve struggles with my skin since puberty and a host of dermatologists could never achieve the results I have experiences from changes. In addition to looking years younger, the therapy broke up the acne scarring on my cheeks. I felt a confidence in my appearance that I have NEVER felt before. Six months later, my skin still looks tremendously better than it has in over a decade.

It doesn’t stop there. Again and again Changes has helped me to look and feel beautiful. I was never one to pamper myself, as when I was younger the idea seemed indulgent, but now I understand that such pampering helps keep my body and spirit healthy, and the effect on my self esteem has been invaluable. I feel confident.

It wouldn’t be fair to comment simply on the services without mentioning the providers. The people at changes have always been kind and considerate with a personal touch that elevates the level of service beyond excellent. Amy, Andi, Tatiana, and all of the others have always made me feel like a friend and the moment I step in the door I truly feel like they are as happy to see me as I am to see them.

Thank you so much for everything.

Becky and Kyle

Millions of orphans and abandoned Indian babies have compromised and challenged lives each and every day. Becky Morlock of Millersburg went to India with plans to serve in an orphanage to help these special children. Little did she know that there was another plan in store for her.

There was a little boy abandoned at birth and weighed only 3-1/2 pounds. Becky felt that it was God's plan for her to adopt this child. So she adopted baby Kyle 2 days after his birth in 2008. After a long process she was awarded legal guardianship of her son Kyle in October 2009. Since that time Becky had been trying to return to America with her son. Only recently in March 2012 with the help of her Attorney's and Congressmen did Becky finally make it back to the U.S.

Kelly Schlegel is a Master Hair Designer at Changes Salon and Day Spa. She knew her client and friend Becky was on her way home from India and wanted to do something special for her. She along with Marla Gibson, the owner, agreed that it would be a wonderful gift to have Becky come into the salon. What better way to enjoy the simple pleasures of being home than to have your hair colored and cut by your favorite Stylist?

Becky was warmly welcomed by Kelly and so very appreciative of the thoughtful gesture provided by Changes! The first thing on her mind after her hair service...was of course getting home to baby Kyle!

Becky will be bringing Kyle into the salon to visit with all of the staff and possibly getting his first hair cut at Changes!!

Thank you Becky for the tender-hearted decision to take such a long journey from home, listening to your call from God and for providing the greatest gift of all... LOVE.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
