Come join us for an afternoon of sharing and experiencing Rosen Method Bodywork!

Time slots for sessions are at 1pm and 3pm, so you send in your payment and we will email you to schedule your session. Rosen Method bodywork is distinguished by its gentle, direct touch. Using hands that listen rather than manipulate, the practitioner focuses on chronic muscle tension. As relaxation occurs and the breath deepens, unconscious feelings, attitudes, and memories may emerge. The Rosen bodywork practitioner has been trained to notice subtle changes in muscle tension and shifts in the breath, and to acknowledge the responses with touch and words.
