Biography

Eunice Mooney - Registered Massage Therapist

Certified Lymphatic Therapist

Eunice’s fascination with human movement began in the 80s when her love for music and fitness attracted her to participate in group fitness classes, then to become a Group Fitness Instructor.  Since then she has continued to learn about health and fitness, acquiring a Eunique variety of skills.  Her passion for good health and movement lead her to design the Eunique Fit Class that she enjoys sharing.

In 1991 Eunice became a Registered Massage Therapist, then studied Kinesiology by taking Distance Education classes from Simon Fraser University. Over the years she has travelled to various centers across North America and abroad to study methods of body work that integrate the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives.

In 1993 she was fortunate to study Manual Lymph Drainage and Complex Decongestive Therapy from an Austrian expert who is the last living student of Dr. Vodder, one of the founders of the method. After rigorous study and exams Eunice became one of the first three Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapists in Saskatchewan.

She later learned Biosomatics Movement Therapy and other forms of exercise which enables her to create home maintenance programs for her clients. The foremost thing that she learned is that all ways of exercise have their merit but none are helpful if the body is not aligned first. She has developed her own Eunique protocol for alignment, treatment, and maintenance.

Eunice travelled to Arizona to study from John Barnes, a foremost leader in Myofascial Release. MRF combined with the St. John method of Neuromuscular Therapy quickly became her treatment of choice for clients with muscle pain and misalignments.

In 2005 Eunice began studying Chi Nei Tsang, a method that detoxifies the body and trains internal organs to work more efficiently. She later travelled to Thailand to learn more from Mantak Chia, the person responsible for bringing these ancient Taoist monk ways of healing to the world.

Having been a figure skater and coach, as well as a participant in water skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding and other sports has helped Eunice understand the necessity for treatment and self-maintenance. In her early 30s, with many sports injuries behind her, her body would “seize up” for a few days at a time and not knowing what to do about it she used pain killers to help her through her life. Now, after becoming well educated in wholistic methods for maintaining a healthy body, Eunice can truthfully say those episodes are in the past. Her motto is “I’m not getting older, I’m getting better!” It is her goal to help all those who seek her services feel that way as well - The Eunique Way.
