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. As this process unfolds, habitual tension and old patterns may be released, freeing the client to experience more aliveness, new choices in life, and a greater sense of well-being.
Rosen Method bodywork is often used by people who are seeking relief from headaches, back pain, muscle tension, joint pain, injuries, insomnia, and chronic conditions like asthma and chronic fatigue. The work can be supportive for people seeking emotional healing and for survivors of trauma or abuse.
Rosen Method bodywork is a powerful tool for stress reduction and for reaching the body / mind connection through touch. It is a type of complementary health care often recommended by doctors and psychotherapists. It is a valuable method for personal growth, for finding the path of the heart and soul in one’s life, and for living more fully in the present.
