Direct, gentle touch; focus on client breathing, relaxation response and verbal cues, to help the client become aware of unconscious muscle tension.
The Rosen Method,¡ developed by physical therapist Marion Rosen, is a system of bodywork and movement that helps the client experience himself in a more accepting and loving way through non-intrusive, subtle touch, awareness of breath, movement exercises, and gentle coaxing.3
Developed by former physical therapist Marion Rosen, the Rosen method combines gentle touch and verbal communication to evoke relaxation and self-awareness. Because it can bring up buried feelings and memories, it is used as a tool for personal growth as well as pain relief.
utilizes gentle touch and verbal communication to help clients to release suppressed emotions and subsequently muscular tension in some instances.
This technique was created by Marion Rosen, who began her career in the 1930's studying relaxation and breath, and then worked as a physical therapist and health educator for over 50 years. The theory of Rosen Method starts with seeing the body's tensions as symptoms of holding our true selves at bay. This stopping of our natural expression most often results in an inner holding that can be felt as muscle tightness and tension. Rosen Method, through light touch and talking, can provide the connection between muscle and joint tensions and our emotional and unconscious life. A typical session lasts 50 minutes, with the client lying on a table, either clothed or unclothed.
