What is Rosen Method Bodywork?
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. We recognise 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 which allow the client to begin to recognise 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 greater sense of well being.
Rosen Therapy works through the use of a therapeutic alliance between therapist and client with best results achieved as the journey of trust develops.
