Definitions for "Rosen Method"
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,ยก 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.
