Rosen Method Bodywork Accessing The Unconscious Through Touch
Marion Rosen, the founder of Rosen Method Bodywork, once said in an interview that this work, Rosen Method, was "work for well people, well people with barriers in their lives...who do not function to their full potential...to become the person you really are, but have forgotten". These barriers are unconscious and can be found in our muscles. By contacting these barriers through touch, allowing them to reveal themselves and to be brought into our consciousness, we become more aware of where our blocks and stuck places are and create the possibility of choice and change where previously there was none. Using touch, relaxation, awareness and areas of chronic tension, we will explore the invitations that arise from our depths and make themselves known through our bodies. This is a non-violent approach which means that as we discover our barriers, we honor and respect them for the job they have done and are doing for us. We do not barge through or push down barriers. It is enough to see them and invite them to speak to us, allowing for the energy previously used in maintaining barriers to be used for conscious living instead. We honor the job our bodies have done in protecting us and storing our traumas until such a time as we could integrate them into our lives. This is a Sacred work. For Rosen, the client will be on a massage table wearing what they are comfortable in, with a sheet covering whatever areas are not being worked on. It is respectfully and tastefully done, with every effort made to see to the client's comfort. Unless your unconscious can trust the practitioner, therapy will not happen. I have trained in this work for 4 years, however, I am changing the way I give a session to a more Craniosacral approach but I still use my Rosen Training all the time. So, If you've had a session before, you might want to have one again since I'm changing things up. In a lot of ways they are very similar but I feel the Biodynamic Craniosacral is a little more detailed in the body and not just working with muscles and breath. Plus, in a BCST session, you keep your clothes on which is more comfortable for a lot of clients, enabling you to feel safer and perhaps delve a little deeper into your processes.
