Ingrid Thornton, Founder of Bella Soul Spa 1995, Massage Therapist since 1994

My vision for Bella Soul Spa is to educate others about natural health, wellness and beauty with a holistic approach to mind and body.  I am blessed to have an amazing staff of educated and like minded professionals who share the same approach.  As a massage therapist and former Pilates and exercise specialist I enjoy working with others to achieve their optimal level of health both physically and mentally.  I have suffered my own challenging journeys through debilitating low back and neck injuries and specialize in those areas of treatment.  My goal for you as our guest is to completely enjoy your experience at Bella Soul Spa as well as to take away tools to use on your own journey in achieving optimal health and wellness.  As our mission statement since 1995: “To nurture, support, heal and encourage one another on our own personal journeys to achieve optimal health, balance and joy.”

Jill Pickering,  Operations and Advertising since 2018

I joined Bella Soul Spa in 2018 through a friendship with Ingrid, and a mutual love of health and wellness. With the multiple roles of business owner, mother, yoga instructor, and community volunteer; self-care is an essential part of my life. I believe that wellness is about finding a balance for the mind, body, and spirit. We must take time to give back to ourselves. This can be in the form of a spa service, meditation, yoga or anything that helps us rebalance and feel happy. Bella Soul Spa’s focus on holistic health, with the use of organic and natural products honors these beliefs. 

Alanna Keir, Guest Services 2021

I enjoy the supportive role I get to play to our talented service providers and to the operations of the spa.  Our services, products and people here at Bella Soul are exceptional and it’s rewarding to be part of a quality solution for our guests looking to meet their holistic wellness needs. I look forward to helping everyone find their time for self care here at Bella Soul Spa!

Lisa Marie Graham, Massage Therapist since 2001

I graduated from Spectrum School of Massage in 2001.  A desire to learn more about treating chronic pain and injury led me to becoming a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist.  My passion for health, fitness, people, the human body, and receiving massage treatments for injuries sustained from a car accident at a young age inspired me to become a massage therapist. My goal is to facilitate and promote healing, health and well being for each of our clients from both a body and mind perspective.  I love to be a part of the healing process and helping people achieve their goals.  I feel that with good communication, team work, giving a treatment plan, and self care your goals can be reached.  I use several modalities including: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy/Trigger Point Therapy, Posture and Gait Analysis, Range of Motion and Stretching.  I am also trained in Stott Pilates and encourage core strength exercises as an essential part of self care.

I began my journey as an esthetician in 2019. After dealing with my own acne struggles I found relief through practicing preventive skincare and self care. I also love connecting with all of our incredible guests and to give them a magical experience to healthy, beautiful skin. There is nothing more rewarding than making someone feel comfortable in their own skin! When I’m not in the treatment room you can find me out on a hike, thrifting, caring for my kitties and plant babies, and practicing ALL the self care!

I became a Licensed Esthetician in 2021. My passion and curiosity for skincare began at a young age. As someone who has personally dealt with a variety of skin issues since the age of 13, I have tried many different treatments and approaches over the years. I found that using a holistic approach with clean, natural products has allowed me to heal my skin from the inside out. My goal is to help my clients see their natural beauty and walk out of their treatment feeling refreshed in their mind, body, and soul.  In my free time, my personal hobbies include snowboarding, baking, taking care of my fur baby, and spending quality time with the people I love.
