Rosen Method Bodywork Intensive May 18-25, 2013

Rosen Method Bodywork Intensive

 May 18-25, 2013   Cascadia Centre – Roberts Creek BC

Registered Training Program and Personal Self-Discovery Workshop

Rosen Method Bodywork is unique in its use of sensitive gentle touch, which meets chronic muscle tension, allowing relaxation.  Rosen Method is a way to access feelings and experiences through the body. Often words are used to speak into what we see or feel, which supports the process. Through muscle tension, the body represses feelings and experiences that we cannot handle at the time of their occurrence. In this way we often forget what happened.

Chronic tension, which once served as a protection, often becomes a barrier, a limitation to the full expression of our aliveness.  When the client relaxes deeply, they may connect with this tension in a way that allows them to experience and become aware of these barriers, therefore supporting the possibility of change at a deep level.
