Jobs at Ballaura

Company Overview

For over 10 years, Ballaura has been Olympia’s most-experienced boutique massage spa, empowering clients to find recovery in their own unique way. We are deeply rooted in the belief that massage isn’t one-size-fits-all, and neither is healing and growth. 

Our core mission of “relieve, relax, recover” spans the spectrum of healing: relieving pain and stress, relaxing into a more positive state of mind, and recovering from injury, stress, or trauma. We share our knowledge, techniques, and passion for improving quality of life for each client that comes through Ballaura’s doors.

Our clients value and seek out personalized service that’s based on experience, scientific knowledge, and exceptional talent—which is why we’ve created such a strong, tight-knit team to hold that space for their healing.

At Ballaura Wellness Spa, our mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. That means we continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate. As an equal opportunity employer, we stay true to our mission by ensuring that our place can be anyone’s place.

We are genuinely passionate about lifting people up, including our whole community. As a team, we are committed to supporting each other and empowering all of us to find true balance in our lives. Working at Ballaura, you’ll find community, flexibility, and inspiration for a truly balanced life.
