What People Say
I have attended Rosen Method Bodywork workshops over a period of years and have grown from the experience. In the beginning it was unique to me to have insights into what experiences from my past were creating tension in my body in the present time. It became apparent to me that with the support of a practitioners hands bringing focus to my area of tension and the observations trained eyes voiced to me, I could recognize my repeated behaviour in my automatic responsiveness to stress and worry. With recognition and acknowledgment I have been able to release old habits and embrace new hope. Within the workshop setting I was also able to learn from witnessing and allowing others to have their own unique experience.
Hard to put into words the depth and power Rosen has been to me. Rosen method bodywork gave me the path to release old wounds and trauma which I had carried for so long. I felt “held” in Rosen and I was able to let go.
Rosen Method has taught me the wisdom of my body. While in session and while attending the Rosen Method Intensive/workshop, I have re-united with that part of me that is ancient and wise, that part of me that is God and unconditional love. Rosen Method has helped me heal traumatic experiences, which before were buried alive in my tissues, preventing me from living a full life. With the help of gentle, listening hands, I’ve come back to me.
Although I had hugged, shook hands, and engaged in all kinds of contact … with continued exploration of Rosen Method touch I discovered I seldom had “true contact” with another. Rosen Method touch reached beyond the physical to be in contact with essence, the soul of me and the first time I touched another in this same way I began to know this presence as me. When we touch in this way listening goes beyond the regular senses and I am with a truth that guides and supports while creating a state of allowing that is authentic.
Susan StirlingRosen Method Bodyworker, RMIC Intern
Rosen Method definitely helped me through some difficult times in the final years of my career and transition into retirement.Through gentle touch and words used in Rosen Method, I became aware of deep
emotions and buried memories within my body that needed to be found, expressed and released. The release offered me a sense of freedom and space to live in the present moment that was new for me. In addition
I found more compassion for myself and others. My personal relationships are now more balanced, in that I now know that I do not need to take care of others to validate myself. With much gratitude, I acknowledge that Rosen Method has deepened my ongoing commitment towards self care and renewed my admiration for healing that is possible in my life.

Matthew van der GeissenAnatomy and Expression Instructor
Matthew van der Giessen has been integrating our understanding of body and mind for over three decades. He has created programs for massage students, bodyworkers, counsellors and yoga teachers. Matthew’s anatomy trainings help somatic practitioners deepen their experience of the sensory/imaginal body. Body tissues are felt and moved so that they can be experienced from the inside-out. The anatomical path of self-inquiry helps practitioners more fully understand their inner sensory landscape, helping them deepen their ability to meet others from a place of embodied presence.
