What is the Rosen Method Body work?

“Rosen Method is a way to access feelings and experiences through the body.” (Rosen & Brenner, 2003, p. 11)

RMBW (Rosen Method Body Work) is a gentle and profound therapy that uses mindful touch and responsive words to support a deepening of our physical and emotional awareness. It works with the layers of muscle tension that we have accumulated throughout our lives. Experiences and feelings, particularly in our early years, that were too difficult for us to endure, had to be put away/suppressed as a survival mechanism. One way of doing it, can take the form of muscle tension. Its function is to create a protective barrier to make us feel safe.

The Rosen Method supports our ability to explore and uncover unconscious truths.

"The uniqueness of RMBW lies in the quality of the touch and presence of the practitioner. Bringing awareness to the inner body, Rosen Method touch helps in opening and removing layers of tension that separate us from our authentic self. We learn to recognize those moments of wholeness and to dwell in them." — Odile Atthalin, founder of RMOC
