Rosen Method Bodywork is an original form of somatic approach which addresses physical tension. Its unique form of sensitive touch and verbal communication helps people to become aware of what they are holding – physically and emotionally – in their body. 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.
It has long been recognised that touch can have a powerful effect on the body. When we are relaxed through touch our natural healing mechanisms work more effectively; the immune system is strengthened and the breath becomes less inhibited and more efficient. Certain touch encourages the release of the hormone oxytocin, increasingly recognised as an important agent in promoting feelings of well-being and connection.
