Kootenay’s Yoga & Thai Massage

Thai-Yoga massage is a therapeutic practice that combines elements of traditional Thai massage and laying down or seated yoga like postures.

I will applying pressure along the body’s energy lines and acupressure points. The massage is performed on a mat on the floor, and the recipient remains fully clothed.

Benefits of receiving Thai-Yoga massage include:

Improved Flexibility: The assisted stretches enhance range of motion and flexibility.

Reduced Muscle Tension: The combination of stretching and pressure alleviates muscle stiffness and tension.

Enhanced Circulation: The rhythmic pressure and stretching improve blood flow and circulation.

Stress Relief: The meditative nature of the practice promotes relaxation and reduces stress.

Increased Energy Levels: Balancing the body’s energy lines can help boost overall energy and vitality.

Pain Relief: Targeting specific pressure points and supported mobilization can alleviate chronic pain and discomfort.

Overall, Thai-Yoga massage offers a holistic approach to physical and mental well-being, blending the benefits of yoga and traditional massage techniques.

Received a treatment at my studio or your place


You and a loved one can receive a lovely Thai-Yoga-Massage in the same room at the same time. Geoffroy Tremblay who is also a certified Thai-Yoga-Massage practitioner certified by Lotus Palm offer massage in the same time as I do.


I received several massages from Melina over the years and they are pure bliss.  Every part of my body from the soles of my toes to the top of my scalp feels like it is vibrating (humming?) at the conclusion.  It is wonderful to be able to completely give myself over to her ministrations and relax into her care.  The sense of total well being is priceless.

All the best,

My partner and I greatly enjoyed our experience learning some Thai massage skills together with Melina and Geoff.
