Judi Trost bio pic_edited.jpg

Registered Massage Therapy


Awareness Through Movement Classes and Workshops

Registered Acupuncturist,

Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner,

Certified Qi Beauty practitioner



Judi has been a practicing registered massage therapist for thirty years and has been studying mind-body-fullness since 1984. She is trained in the Practice of Loving Presence, Hakomi Method and has been a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2001. Judi sees herself as an educator more than a therapist, as Feldenkrais is a somatic education practice and is not designed to correct or fix. Judi’s unique approach to bodywork is born from a lifetime of seeking wholeness in a compartmentalized and mechanistic world. She says, “My intention is to re-in-form people, to bring them back into their own form. I create an environment where the client can remember and discover their own wholeness.”


Over the last twenty years, Judi has taught workshops at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (WCCMT), the Summer Leadership Institute and CEC courses for RMTs at the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC). She also teaches ongoing weekly classes and monthly workshops here at MokSana Yoga. As well as being an experienced massage and Feldenkrais Practitioner, Judi was a member of a marimba band for 12 years. The experience of working with a group and performing all over the province provided many skills for managing group energy.

Judi Trost, BA, RMT, GCFP
Judi Trost, BA, RMT, GCFP


As a teenager I developed a passion for alternative therapies after having a RMT diagnose and treat my functional scoliosis.
In 2014 I attended the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy (OVCMT) and graduated in 2016. During my time at OVCMT I developed the ability to create individual treatment plans for patients with conditions such as:  sports injuries, systemic and neurological conditions, cancer, geriatric, pediatrics, addiction, pregnancy, scar tissue, joint replacements and others.

Some of the techniques I utilizes are: myofascial release, NMT (trigger point release), lymphatic drainage, joint mobilization, deep tissue, Swedish massage, muscle energy, reflexology, hydrotherapy, therapeutic exercise as well as other advanced techniques. I believes it is important to understand the root cause of an issue to effectively treat the person and create change.
I am passionate about helping others and value creating a comfortable and safe environment for everyone. I look forward to meeting you and learning how best to help you.

Aroma Body Massage
60min $70
75min $85
90min $100

Aroma body massage reduces stress and enhances your body’s natural healing powers. This treatment also releases tension in the muscles and balances the body, especially around the ankles and pelvis, which are foundational; this in turn widens the lymph paths and increases blood circulation. The treatment will be customized to suit your needs.

Jakuseki Reflexology
45min $45

The ultimate idea of Jakuseki Reflexology is to let many people know that is to protect your own health by yourself.
On our feet the peripheral nerves are connected to each organ of the body and the internal organs. The place where the nerve concentrates is called the "reflective area". The soles, where the reflection zone is distributed, are called the "second heart" and send us a message as a mirror reflecting the condition of the body. By stimulating the reflective area, it enhances blood circulation and tones hormonal balance. This is a health therapy aimed at improving, by eliminating adverse effects such as stress, waste products, toxins etc, which are accumulated daily by raising natural healing power. I use moderate pressure and adjust for each person differently to make sure that everyone can feel "painful and pleasant" at the same time and I truly
believe that good stimulation brings a positive impact to the mind and body.

Head Massage
30min $35

Head massage relieves strain on the shoulders, neck and head, and will bring you into a deepened state of relaxation. (Oil is not applied to the head)

Facial Massage (Optional treatment) 15min $20

Facial massage works to loosen muscle tension and to awaken small facial muscles which are not normally used. Recommended in combination with head massage. (Anti-Aging oil is applied to the face)

Methods of Payment: Cash, check or E-transfer. No third-party billing.

Marisa Covantes, Reg. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner

Marisa was born and raised in Mexico City. She studied Veterinary Medicine at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. After graduation she spent 15 years as a Veterinarian, working in Mexico, Nicaragua, New Zealand and Australia. 


Before attending university, Marisa worked as a volunteer, teaching literacy to adults living in small, poor, rural Mexican villages. She discovered that many of the elders in these villages used herbs and traditional remedies for addressing health issues, in an environment which often lacked access to conventional mainstream medicine. It was apparent that these traditional methods were very effective in the healing process. Marisa became interested in human health issues, and holistic ways of healing as well. 


After have been working at an acupuncture clinic in Mexico City, she became interested in Chinese Medicine. While still at university she attended a 2 week workshop on veterinary acupuncture. She decided to come to Canada in 2008 and study Traditional Chinese Medicine. She graduated in 2014 from her diploma in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, from Pacific Rim College.


Marisa finds Traditional Chinese Medicine as one of the most complete methods of healing. It combines acupuncture, massage, herbs, cupping, gua sha (skin scrapping), food therapy and lifestyle advice. 


On May 2019, Marisa became a Certified Qi Beauty Practitioner. A technique for face and neck lifting through the use of micro-magnets to bring vitality and nourishment to the skin and subcutaneous tissues reducing aging marks.


Marisa also combines acupuncture and Qi beauty treatments to treat some disorders like bell’s palsy and trigeminal neuralgia.
