Rosen Method (Emotional Release) Bodywork

Rosen Method Bodywork involves gentle, yet firm, touch with accompanying verbal interaction. This combination creates a space for you to release physical tension as well as underlying emotional holding.

Who benefits? Those who are dealing with:
  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Fertility Issues
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationship Issues
  • Spiritual Emergence
  • Chronic aches and pains
When feelings are not allowed or certain experiences are not completed, the body holds what is denied. The energy spent in holding unallowable feelings at bay is not available for present day life.  As a practitioner, I focus on helping you become aware of what is held, allowing your muscle tension to relax and opening the door to an exploration of the underlying emotional holding.

You may experience increased well-being and trust, a deeper connection with your true self.



Origin of the work

Rosen Method Bodywork was developed by Marion Rosen, a physical therapist who also had studied breathwork. Marion noticed that when people talked about their injuries, their memories and their lives, they healed more quickly and did not have recurring problems.

At the age of 60, Marion changed the focus of her physical therapy practice to the emotional release work, focusing on the causes of tight muscles, chronic aches and pains, and low vitality.

Marion also developed Rosen Method Movement, to keep help people recover after accidents or trauma and to help them maintain or regain mobility and flexibility.
