Rosen Method is a form of bodywork that addresses deep holding patterns within the body. The body is a gateway into subconscious patterns of holding tension. A muscle can either be working or be relaxed. When a muscle of muscle group is chronically holding tension, there has been a pattern established by the body in order to survive specific circumstances or life experience. Intellectually we may know that we no longer need to be in survival mode, but on a cellular level our body may still be bracing itself. Rosen Bodywork facilitates introspection into the purpose served by chronic physical tension. This bodywork supports awareness of the emotional, physical and cognitive aspects of unconscious material. Using touch words and presence, a safe space is provided which offers clients the opportunity to listen deeply and access the truth behind the tension, Life outside a person begins to reflect this truth and living a more authentic life becomes possible.
Sessions are one hour. The client lies partially clothed and also covered by a sheet on a massage table. No oils are used. Using hands that listen rather than manipulate and supportive words, the client’s awareness is guided to chronic muscle tension. As relaxation occurs, the breath deepens, feelings emerge freeing the client to experience greater life vitality.
Over time, clients often report experiencing less anxiety and stress, increased freedom and less physical and emotional pain, more balance in their emotional life, ability to make clearer decisions, engaging in healthier relationships and an overall sense of well being.
