Are you plagued with aches and pains from your daily routine?
Does your back or shoulder always hurt but you don't know why?
Are you looking for a way to achieve optimal performance in your sport?
Think of your body as a stack of books, if all of the books are aligned, there is no problem. But if one book is out of place in the stack, the rest of the books have to be shifted to keep the stack balanced. The exact same thing happens in your body. An imbalance in your body will cause the rest of the body to shift in order to maintain its center of gravity.
A Structural Alignment Assessment is an analysis of your whole body in which imbalances are located and assessed. You will discover what your imbalances are, and receive a series of gentle exercise to bring your body back into a normal balance.
Benefits of a Good Posture
So, our mothers and grandmothers knew what they were talking about when they told us to sit up and stand tall, pull your shoulders back. If you're a mother, maybe you have said the same thing. We need to keep saying it and help our children (and ourselves) understand why it's important. There are wonderful, healthful benefits to maintaining good posture, not only for our body, but for our whole self.
Improves overall appearance
Aids in digestion, breathing, and other organ function
Helps to prevent back and neck pain
Helps with less problematic pregnancies, labour and quicker postpartum recovery

Poor posture can take a tremendous toll on your state of well-being. Besides contributing to lower back pain, bad posture may also contribute to:
Limited flexibility and range of motion
Loss of vital lung capacity
Distorted skeletal alignment
Joint stiffness and pain
Reduction of blood and oxygen to the brain
Wear and tear on connective tissue
Predisposition to injury

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.”
