Rosen Method Bodywork Where has Rosen Method come from? Rosen Method has been developed by a German-born physiotherapist called Marion Rosen who is recognised as a pioneering leader in the field of body-oriented therapies. Her work has come out of over 70 years of clinical experience and she was still teaching and practising until the age of 97. What is Rosen Method? Rosen practitioners uses a gentle touch that “listens” rather than manipulates and focuses on where someone is holding tension in their body. Rather than trying to “fix the problem”, Rosen Method explores what is underlying the tension – why has this person learnt to hold themselves in this way? Over the years, we may have felt that our spontaneous feelings and expression were not acceptable, so we learnt to keep certain parts of ourselves back, down or in, burying them deep inside through muscular tension. This can be reflected in our posture, our gestures, and in turn is reflected in how we are in life. Rosen Method can assist with: Deep relaxation and release of physical tension and pain Lessening stress Reconnecting to inner resources and increasing awareness of one's full potential Encouraging a more fulfilling relationship with self and others Rediscovering creativity and passion for life Spiritual connection and opening
Within a session Practitioner’s hands are soft and open and have an enquiring quality, they feel for where someone is tense and restricted in their body and go in to “meet” them at that place where they hold. The quality of the touch is patient and respectful, there is no trying to do or change anything, just simply reminding the muscles that they are holding. As they begin to relax and tension starts to melt, there can be a sense of “dropping in” and from this place, feelings and emotions can emerge. Practitioners may use words to reflect back how they are experiencing someone’s body and because the insight is gained through the hands, the words can come from a very deep place often reaching to the core of an issue so assisting unconscious memories to come through to someone’s conscious awareness. Rosen Method allows individuals to relax into themselves and connect to their own inner strength giving a new possibility of choice in their lives. As a result, many report increased self-confidence and vitality and say that they are able to re-set their priorities and make positive changes. It offer a safe way of opening up and re-connecting, not only to the self but to others too. Debbie Fildew Debbie practised for many years as a physiotherapist specialising in relaxation and breath work. She was always fascinated by the interweaving between the mind and body and how one can so readily effect the other, and this led her to train further in shiatsu, initially with Keith Phillips and then with Sonia Moriceau and Kishi. When she discovered Rosen Method in 2006 she was deeply moved by its simplicity, gentleness and its ability to reach to the very heart of us. It was a wonderful turning point in her own life and practice. Debbie has also worked as complementary therapy co-ordinator for a hospice and continues to bring Rosen into the elderly residential care setting alongside her practice.
