“All-Around Awesome” Spa Practitioner/Body Worker

Website OHspa

Refresh, Renew, Relax


Ohspa is currently looking for a resourceful, organically inspired, Spa Practitioner/Body Worker who brings light, love and laughter along with their natural gifts and practiced skills of healing to our clients and our spa team. We want Ohspa to be the best spa on the planet for life balance, personal/career growth, friendship, safety, and making its people and clients super satisfied. We are Island lovers, nature lovers, wellness nuts and enjoy a good laugh. How about you?


Working at Ohspa is different than working at a city spa or a resort spa.  We are more like a wellness sanctuary.  Many of our treatment rooms and our lounge face the Courtenay River Estuary, providing a free-flowing energy.  We love the details of our space and the intentional placement of flowers, products, and little extras. A zen place in every season, we are accessible to so many types of people: locals, visitors, wellness seekers, celebrators and those in real need of an escape. From the smallest treatment, like eyebrow waxing to a full-on relaxation massage with a facial, we offer our clients a sense of pride in pursuing self-care. Our level of excellence comes naturally, from our practitioners and every member of our team.

The spa world is changing, and we are changing with it.  Our compensation package is rewarding, and we honour flexibility and open communication where individual thought and opinion are respected and encouraged. We have great expectations of our team members – and understand that you expect the same commitment from us. Training and education are part of our world, and we never stop growing and searching for the best way to evolve with the world of natural and healthy skin and body care products.

In a nutshell, we are here for you. We value you, want to hear from you and support you in the opportunities and challenges that come your way.


  • If you’re in this field, we know you love natural, organic products and of course you are the chef of blended oils that will best suit your client. Check out our key product lines including Eminence Organics, Red Fox Botanicals, SPARITUAL and Green Valley Aromatherapy.
  • Your clients are your trusted relationships, so you are the navigator of their wellness journey by keeping accurate treatment records and notes. You’ll keep strict confidences: it’s a golden rule in life and definitely comes with the spa territory.

  • We will tap your great communication skills as you are a professional consultant who explain various treatments/services to your guests in a clear and knowledgeable manner and respond to their questions and concerns.
