Bowen Therapy Bowen Therapy is a unique and unusual form of soft-tissue bodywork that is effective in relaxing muscle tension and reducing the body’s stress levels. It is a gentle technique that resets the nervous system, helping to restore calmness and deep relaxation throughout the whole body. By applying light rolling moves over specific muscles and areas of the body, signals are sent, via the nervous system to the brain, to reorganise the tension patterns in the body. Sets of moves are followed by two to five minute delays, where the practitioner allows the client to relax on the table, allowing the body to integrate the effect of the work.This leads to deeper breathing, slower heart rate, improved blood circulation to the tissues and the removal of waste fluids via the lymphatic system. When the nervous system relaxes, the adrenal glands reduce the amount of adrenaline and cortisol they are producing, which in turn sends signals to the brain and the rest of the hormone system to start returning to a point of balance. Pain levels can be reduced significantly and people report feeling more flexible, sleeping better, and are much more energetic for days after a session. The effects of a Bowen session can be quite profound and can last far longer than many other bodywork techniques. Many clients only need 2 –3 sessions, one week apart initially, and then a tune up once a month or when they feel the effects of stress returning. Bowen Therapy is appropriate for anyone, from newborn babies and supporting women through pregnancy to the frail and the elderly. It is useful to assist recovery from many conditions, from traumatic injury to chronic illness, based on each person's capacity to heal. Bowen Therapy should be considered for:
  • Back pain and sciatica

  • Groin pain, pelvic tilt and uneven leg length

Bowen Therapy is also effective for stress and stress-related issues such as:

  • Mind body integration
  • Pre and post surgery

Reflexology Reflexology is an ancient holistic healing method that uses the subtle energies of the feet to balance and harmonise the entire being. It is based on the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet, hand, ears and tongue, (I specialise in feet) which correspond to all the major organs and body systems. When these points are stimulated and stretched, the vital energy or prana, chi healing energy circulates throughout the body bringing the body, mind and spirit into balance. Tension is eased, nerve and blood supply is increased. Treatments: Treatments usually last for 75-minutes (Including a foot bath). For best results, treatments should be taken as part of a course of up to 6-12 treatments on a regular basis until wellbeing is restored. Maintenance treatments can be taken when needed or on a monthly basis. After a session you are likely to feel both revitalised and relaxed. Some of the benefits of Reflexology:
  • Reduces and normalises high and low blood pressure
  • Eliminates oedema and swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Helps release uric acid
  • Brings vitality and boosts the immune system
  • Improves your quality of sleep

  • Clears constipation/li>
  • Be regular/li>
  • Alleviates pain

  • Clears headaches

  • Aids digestion

Intuitive Foot readings The feet play a vital role in transporting the body, mind and soul from one experience to the next so that the progress can be made through the journey of life. The feet reflect the subconscious mind, and through tuning in and reading the shapes, lines, colour, textures of the soles we can gain insights about who you really are, and how you think and feel about you past, present and future.
  • The shape of the feet reveal the shape of things to come
  • Their size and impact of the feet relate to the amount of impression an individual makes during their journey through life and how these can be used favourably.

Testimonials: "Hi Danielle, I just had to tell you how rejuvenated I feel after your massage and kind words of wisdom. I have so much energy and motivation to do the things again and feel so much more at peace." - Anna B. "This course was a great introduction into reflexology and really showed me what is possible to achieve through working with the feet. Although I enjoyed the physical aspect of this course very much, I really absorbed and appreciated the spiritual information provided. Danielle is such a beautiful person with so much to give and so much to share, I couldn't imagine taking another course elsewhere. The environment was perfect and comfortable and I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who is intrigued by reflexology or alternative healing techniques." -Kirsten, 2013 “One of the things that separates Danielle from many others that give massages is her ability to truly “tune in” to what is occurring in a person's body and energy and help them get back on track. Her intuition and ability to “read” what is occurring for an individual is nothing short of incredible. I have gone to her many times to walk away after 90 min feeling a shift in energy and overall lightness that helps refocus and re-energise.” - Scott S., Sydney & Queenstown “What can I say... throughout the last 7 months, I have been seeing Danielle every week for a mixture of Bowen, reflexology and massage. For 5 months of this I was pregnant. Throughout my pregnancy Danielle's treatments supported me through a very busy time by maintaining balance in my body, ensuring that I could cope with the physical and emotional changes that pregnancy brings on and enabled me to cope with my own business, pregnancy and a toddler. Even though this was my second pregnancy I felt better than I have ever felt before in regards to energy levels and within myself.” - Kelly, Wanaka “Danielle has a true gift with what she practices and with people. She was in tune with me right from the outset and has been through a tremendous journey with me.” - Jo, Queenstown “I would like to highly recommend Danielle Argent for Massage, Bowen and Reflexology treatments—and overall energy work. I have used Danielle's services for over 10 years in both Australia and New Zealand and I am always impressed with the dedication, education and approach that she shares with others.” - Jergen G. “I have spondylolisthesis one of my lumbar vertebrae which requires regular “maintenance”. Danielle is always able to calculate where my injury needs treatment, which muscles need working out and then certainly delivers a beneficial massage. As a result I'm able to keep up with my regular exercise as well has daily “pain free” living”. - Tony H. Danielle I just had to tell you how rejuvenated I feel after your massage and kind words of wisdom. I have so much energy and motivation to do things again and feel so much more at peace. - Anna B “When I first received a treatment from Danielle I had just had surgery and was feeling very fragile physically and emotionally. I had a wonderful massage that began the healing process. I walked away feeling peaceful, renewed and uplifted. Since then I have seen Danielle when my body feels out of balance or I need some TLC.” - Kate A., Queenstown “Danielle treats the whole person which leaves me feeling energized. She intuitively works the body and brings the harmony back to my whole being. Danielle's body work goes to the very heart of my spirit.” - Trish N. “I've been seeing Danielle for therapeutically for years. I find her treatments are constantly very good, I find her massage to be intuitive and I always leave feeling more energized and balanced.” - Anna B. “Every now and then I find myself in the presence of something or someone extraordinary, a reminder that the miracle of life - an inherent magnificence, is not beyond the relentless daily procession of my life…but is ever present within it. Thank you, Danielle" - Rob, Queenstown "Danielle finds aches and pains I didn’t even know I had. Her attention to detail and genuine interest in promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well being ensures a wonderful transformation. I limp in bruised and battered, and leave with a spring in my step. - Tim, Queenstown. "Danielle created a fantastic learning experience; she passes on her knowledge beautifully, offered loads of support and still does. Small class size, enabled plenty of one to one time with each student. Not only did I learn the Bowen Technique, I learned a whole new way of thinking, as a nurse I only knew one way of healing, it’s been quite life changing for me. I have been able to set up my own Bowen business in just 8 months, after starting my training in Queenstown April 09 Her teachings run true to the original Bowen Technique which was really important to me I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone wishing to learn Bowen." - Nikki Lauder, Queenstown "For higher clearing, healing and alignment, I highly recommend Danielle's therapies. The integration of several modalities and her extensive experience quickens the release of stress so that the ethereal can then order the physical body to function in healthy recall. She is the best practitioner in Otago!" - The Oracle, author of "The Oracle Speaks", "The Oracle Teachings" and meditation CD "Touched By The Light" "I am so excited about learning Bowen with Danielle. Danielle is a natural teacher with an amazing depth of knowledge on how the human body works on all levels. Danielle thoroughly with plenty of one on one time teaches us each of the Bowen moves. I feel proud and confident that I have been trained by a top level Bowen teacher.” - Cathy. B., Dunedin
