Bobbi Johnston

Bobbi Johnston started out at Lambton College in law enforcement but soon realized it was not for her.

When she change to the Massage Therapy program, she knew instantly that it was something she wanted to do.

"It was a very in-depth three-year program," says Bobbi.  "Many dropped out but I loved it. "  The students were also required to study anatomy, deep massage, sports injury massage and Swedish massage and, today, she is a fully qualified and Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).  "I have clients who are as young as 11 and into their late 70s.  Part of massage is to find the right technique for the individual."

Over three years, RMTs are required to acquire 30 continuing education courses, adds Bobbi.  She now works out of two salons, Drifting Sands Spa in Southampton on Wednesdays and Thursdays and one in Wiarton.  For the gift of relaxation and feeling of wellness, gift certificates are available or book an appointment by calling 519-797-3007.
