The Rosen Method


What is it?

“Our work addresses the holding back that we do, where we do not show ourselves, where we hold back feelings, where we hold back actions. Through listening to the truth of the body it is possible to discover what we can do, who we can be, what we can experience, how we can love.” 

Marion Rosen, Founder


Rosen Method Bodywork is an original form of bodywork which addresses the whole person through their physical tension and emotional pain. Its unique form of gentle, listening touch and verbal communication helps people to connect with the truth and not have to deny difficult feelings or experiences.  When the body is allowed to reveal its truth in a space of non-judgement, it can relax and let go of stress and pain.  In Rosen we believe that chronic tension is the result of emotional holding, feelings that have not flowed through us for whatever reason. Emotional pain hurts in the body just like physical pain.

 Rosen Method helps individuals to soften their barriers to life so that they can live more fully, have more joy and ease of being, which in turn can lead to positive action in the client's life. When we are really embodied, connected in ourselves, physically, we can be aware of and care for ourselves, meet our needs. We can also connect with others in deep and meaningful ways.

Rosen is a way of exploration for the person who would like more out of their life, and who wishes to connect more to their body's inherent loving wisdom – to live their unrealised potential. Somewhere inside, we remember the possibility of wholeness, fullness of being, and we seek a return to that. Rosen can help us reclaim our bodies and, thereby, a clearer, stronger sense of self.

In Rosen we do not aim to fix, manipulate or change, we help create the conditions for you and your body to heal naturally.
