Many times we suffer from pains and headaches that go undiagnosed. This can be because of fascial problems that do not show on standard tests such as X-rays, CAT scans, electromyography, myelograms and others. At Eunique Massage & Fitness in Calgary, Eunice uses Myofascial Release and other techniques to treat pains exerted by the fascia. She provides the Eunique Alignment Therapy protocol that includes different modalities learned over 3 decades and is (e)unique to each individual client.
What is Fascia?
It is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a sweater. It interpenetrates every structure of the body without any interruption and exists from head to foot. Trauma or inflammation can cause a binding down of fascia, causing excessive pressure on the nerves, muscles, blood vessels and other organs. Over time, the fascia loses its flexibility and restricts motion.
Eunice uses the Barnes Method, combined with a Eunique Alignment Assessment and other modalities to improve the individual’s motion and help them return to a pain-free, active lifestyle. The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Method is safe and effective in producing positive and lasting results.

Highly Skilled, Up To Date
“I have attended Eunice for MLD treatments for over a year and continue under her care. I am not a local, and although a Canadian citizen, I now live in New Zealand, but, as my daughter lives in Calgary, I visit frequently.
I knew nothing of any of the MLD Therapists registered in Calgary, and chose Eunice by chance and geography. Hers was the closest office to my daughter's home. As it turned out, I could not have found a better therapist for my lymphedema. Eunice is a lovely person. She is quietly spoken, calm and mature. She is highly skilled, up to date with modern lymphedema treatments, and is a careful, safe and diligent therapist.
I have learned much from Eunice on how to manage my lymphedema; her treatments have led to a significant and sustained improvement in not just my lymphedema, but in my mental attitude towards it.
While lymphedema is a chronic, incurable condition, I now feel that I am not alone in dealing with it. Eunice shows a genuine sense of caring and concern. I now have the feeling that there is someone else walking beside me, who understands the daily frustrations and challenge that we with lymphedema face.
I am a family doctor with forty years of experience. I rarely provide public endorsements, but in this instance it is an absolute pleasure to do so. I unreservedly recommend Eunice's professional services to anyone with a chronic soft tissue condition, and particularly for those with primary or secondary lymphedema.”
