The Rosen Method


What is Rosen Method Body/Soul Work?

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.

Through Rosen Method, you can:

  • Bring out your natural capacity for movement, for emotion, for expression
  • Stop reinforcing old habits that are causing tension and discomfort
  • Cultivate awareness of your body in the present moment
  • Find a somatic way to practice deep listening in relationship
  • Learn to mobilize your parasympathetic nervous system
  • Reveal unconscious beliefs and feelings

I look forward to facilitating your first experience or continuing with you on your Rosen Method Bodywork sessions in Newport Rhode Island Sanctuary.

Cancellation Policy – Terms & Conditions

We understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In our desire to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:

24 hour advance notice is required when canceling your appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give us a 24 hour advance notice you will be charged the full amount of your appointment. All prepaid appointment monies will be forfeited. A non-prepaid appointment must be paid for prior to scheduling a new appointment.


If you either forget or consciously choose to forgo your appointment without 24 hour notification for any reason, this will be considered a “no-show.” All prepaid appointment monies will be forfeited. A non-prepaid appointment must be paid for prior to scheduling a new appointment.

Late Arrivals:

If you arrive late, your massage therapy or private yoga session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for payment of the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other clients, please plan accordingly and be 10 minutes early.

We look forward to serving you at our Newport Rhode Island Sanctuary!
