How do I know if I would benefit from a combined Services package?

(Physiotherapy combined with NLP / Reiki /Applied Kinesiology)

For those who have been suffering from chronic pain or have reoccurring issues such as neck/back pain, Danielle recommends investigating all potential contributors to your pain. Other contributors may include holding onto emotions /stress / muscle imbalances/ limiting beliefs/ environmental stressors. The body speaks and when there is pain that isn’t responding to physical treatment only it benefits to investigate other contributors.

In conjunction with hands-on therapy clients with longstanding issues will especially be encouraged to do an exercise program/Clinical Pilates and recommended applied kinesiology/ reiki/ NLP.

Where are combined physiotherapy Sessions offered?
  1. In Clinic (At the wellness place, Bassendean)

Applied Kinesiology

What is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology is a method that allows us the access the body’s innate intelligence. Your body is more intelligent than your mind and it speaks to you in how you feel, be it pleasurable feelings or painful ones. The body lets you know what you are truly feeling about the situations in your life. Kinesiology directly accesses this innate physical intelligence.

How does Applied kinesiology work?

Applied kinesiology combines muscle testing with asking questions to connect to the body’s innate wisdom.

Would Applied Kinesiology be appropriate for me?

Danielle uses Applied Kinesiology for clients that require treatment on more than just the physical. This often will be clients with chronic issues that will benefit from exploring emotions/beliefs that are causing/ contributing to their pain (physical/ emotional) or being created from it.

Why does Danielle use Applied Kinesiology in combination with other methods / Modalities?

Danielle chooses to integrate techniques so that the cause and effect are both being addressed. The cause at any emotional / mental level and the effect on a physical and visa versa.

NLP & Coaching

What is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Neuro refers to your neurology, Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions. NLP is a method of training (or rather retraining) your subconscious mind.

How does NLP work?

NLP involves using the imagination to change your internal experience.

Through the use of imagination, a shift can be created in the sensory system. NLP uses a variety of modalities to put the conscious mind and the subconscious mind on the “same page”.

Who is NLP appropriate for and why:
Individuals living with Chronic pain
Had enough of managing symptoms?

Whilst pain has a physical component thoughts and feelings contribute to the experience of pain. Whilst physiotherapy can assist on a physical level with symptom relief and improving imbalances and issues it helps to shift feelings and thoughts that are contributing to pain and this is where NLP will be utilized.

Individuals feeling stuck with resurfacing emotions
Feeling emotionally TRIGGERED by that person? Situation?

When trauma/emotions are repressed in our nervous system they will be stored at a subconscious level. Often with these repressed feelings there will be similar situations / people that say or do something that will trigger these feelings up. If a person is unaware of why they are feeling that way they will often react to the person they see at cause and project these feelings outward. NLP will assist in the reprogramming of the root cause event that these feelings are connected in with so you can feel more emotionally free.

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is about giving you the insights, asking you the questions and allowing you to come up with your answers to take you from where you are now to where you want to be.  Once you know yourself and what you are aiming for you have no alternative but to start moving towards this.

Outcomes clients can expect from Life Coaching:

  • Complete understanding of their whole life at present, including identification of specific areas for change / improvement
  • A clear understanding of the options available to move forward in their lives and a plan to do so
  • Identification of the hidden drivers of their behaviour
  • Ability to align inner processes more with their desired outcomes to accelerate results
  • Clearer picture of the moments of meaning in their lives and an empowering interpretation of those events to propel them forward to success
  • More empowered self-talk to cut through self-sabotage
  • A proven goal-setting system to increase their effectiveness in goal-achievement

 How Danielle integrates Life Coaching into her sessions

Life Coaching will only ever be part of a session with Danielle. Danielle has found to get the best results aspects of life coaching are best when integrated with Neuro-linguistic programming, Reiki and/or kinesiology to assist a client in achieving their results. This integrative method is useful as is it works with both your conscious and subconscious mind and therefore there is less chance of resistance getting in the way with the results you are aiming for.

Danielle will determine whether a client will benefit from the integration of life coaching based on a client’s level of self-awareness and what they are aiming for.

“Life coaching is built on a central belief – that the quality of our lives is not built upon the events in our lives, but rather, on the meaning we give to those events.”


"Reiki works on the Energy System of the body. Reiki accelerates and strengthens any other healing practice."

What is Reiki and why use it

Human beings are energy systems. Life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy system. When our energy systems are out of balance, we suffer. The effect of receiving a Reiki treatment is that your supply of life energy is increased and assisted in returning to balance. In a state of balance and renewed energy it makes it easier to heal.

How Reiki occurs

 A reiki treatment consists of laying the hands on the body and allowing the energy of life to flow through the hands to the person being treated.

Who Reiki is appropriate for

Reiki is suitable in any situation where there is a desire for and openness to healing. Reiki can assist with all healing of everything from bruising to chronic illness to mental/ emotional imbalances.

Why Danielle chooses to use Reiki in combination with other methods/ Modalities

Reiki accelerates and strengthens any other healing practice. Danielle has found that Reiki is an amazing tool to combine with physiotherapy/ applied kinesiology and neurolinguistic programming (NLP). In combining these therapies the issue is resolved on multiple layers of ones being. Physical pain/tension influences emotional/mental state and ones emotional/mental state influences physical pain/tension and so Danielle chooses to use this combination for those with long standing or reoccurring issues (both physical and emotional).
