Bobbie Salang has explored the science of bodywork from several anatomical angles. As a licensed massage therapist, nationally certified personal trainer, and holistic health coach, she channels 20 years of fitness experience into services at Sevenlakes Massage & Body Therapies.

They continue to augment their knowledge by attending courses whose credits exceed their licensing requirements, all for the sake of their business's professional and peaceful ambiance.
Bobbie and Chrissy hope to spark sustainable change in their clients' lifestyles, whether they are customizing a massage to thwart pain or offering dietary guidance to thwart rival coworkers from deep-frying your lunch while your back is turned. Bobbie's passion for Pilates fuels group classes and personal-training sessions, whose core-strengthening effects can complement her kneading treatments and benefit physiques from top to bottom.
