Bobbi purchased All About Massage and Laser Services in June of 2010. Having stayed at home for 16 years to raise her three kids, she decided, along with her husband Richard, to invest in a business in Downtown Sudbury that would follow her desire to make the world around her a more positive and peaceful place to be. Since then she has grown the business to employee 14 staff. In May of 2014 she expanded the original space to include the former Photo World/Records on Wheels so that the spa now occupies over 4000sqft.
Bobbi enjoys being an active community member in both the business world as well as a supporter of the Arts in Northern Ontario. One of her many passions is to share her entrepreneurial spirit with like-minded business women and men, helping to grow each other’s businesses and continue to make the Sudbury economy strong.
When she is not working on the business, Bobbi enjoys learning/promoting a healthy lifestyle for herself and her family, including cooking, gardening and spending time with her husband, three wonderful children and two dogs.

Chrissy Paradis attended the Sault College of Applied Arts and Sciences and received her registration in February of 2005. Her pursuit of massage therapy was a natural fit as she had always been complimented on her “healing hands”. Her areas of practice include Swedish massage, hot stone, paraffin and mobility taping. She witnesses the stress put on our bodies from work as well as daily activities and that this can build up and present itself in many ways. With the advancement of technology, it means more and more people are suffering the effects of working at computers, one example being her husband in his career. She gets to see the effects first hand with her husband and his career in the computer department. She can help through massage therapy to help alleviate some of this, and guide people to minimize these effects.
When not at the spa helping clients, Chrissy loves spending time with her wonderful husband and their four fur babies.
