Rosen Method

Transformational and profound, no other bodywork more clearly, directly and powerfully addresses the vital connection of our emotions and how they affect our bodies.

Rosen Method 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 practitioner has been trained to notice subtle changes in muscle tension and shifts in the breath. S/he recognizes these as indications that the client is relaxing and becoming more aware of his/her body and internal experience. The practitioner responds with touch and words that allow the client to begin to recognize what has been held down by unconscious muscle tension.

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.

“This work is about transformation –
from the person we think we are
to the person we really are.”
–Marion Rosen
