Elizabeth Ewanchuk loves climbing rocks and trees, feeling the sun’s warmth on her face and squishing soil between her toes. When she’s not climbing, cycling or getting bendy on her yoga mat, you’ll likely ﬁnd her in the kitchen concocting something yummy. Either that or tormenting her three very naughty feline roommates.
Always fascinated by the interconnectedness of life, she tackled her own health challenges holistically and now shares her wisdom as a Sports Injury Specialist, where she weaves traditional healing methods with modern science to help athletes reach peak performance.
Elizabeth’s One-to-One Session at Bliss
Thai Massage is an ancient healing system that combines acupressure, joint and spine
mobilization along with assisted yoga stretches. During a session, Elizabeth will guide you through a series of passive stretches and compressions using her palms, thumbs, elbows, knees and feet. Depending on what you need, treatments may be very gentle or more intense. Its ﬂowing, rhythmic motions are both calming and invigorating. And delicious!
How to Prepare For Your Session
Treatments take place on a large, comfortable mat on the ﬂoor. It’s best to wear clothing that has some give (exercise wear is perfect). Your body will cool during the session, so be sure to wear long sleeves and pants.
Herbal Heat Therapy
Thai Herbal Therapy brings together the profound healing eﬀects of heat, aromatherapy, massage and herbal medicine. Two grapefruit-size compresses are used during the treatment: one is used to massage your body while the other remains in a steamer, allowing for a continuous ﬂow of heat and aroma. Each compress is ﬁlled with fragrant healing herbs and spices. The additional cost for herbal heat therapy is $20, to be paid directly to Elizabeth. The compresses are yours to keep; Elizabeth will give you a handout on how to store and use them at home.

Elizabeth’s Group Activity at Bliss
Join Kathy and Elizabeth to stretch your body, tickle your heart and soothe your soul. Drawing inspiration from yoga, breath awareness, tai chi and Thai massage, we’ll invite a playful curiosity through movement and stillness. Let’s have some fun!
Here’s what we’ll be doing:
- After a morning spent in nature enjoying outdoor play, we’ll come inside to slow down and get curious about ourselves. In a world filled with external demands, we’ll invite quiet reflection. Listen to your body; be present; breathe.
- During the last half of the class, we’ll move into delicious restorative poses. With simple props supporting your body, tensions can melt away. Elizabeth will offer subtle Thai massage to encourage deeper relaxation. Yum!
Gentle movement makes the workshop accessible to all bodies and abilities – no previous experience required.
Please bring the following items with you! If you don’t have them, no worries; we’ll MacGyver something that works.
- Yoga mat
- Shawl or sweater (your body will cool off during the restorative poses)
- Thick blanket
- One pillow
