In this long-awaited description of the body-centered therapy developed by Marion Rosen, the reader begins to understand how emotional and physical ailments can be addressed through the gentle touch of the Rosen practitioner. Rosen explains how the practitioner identifies tensions in the body that point to the source of a problem and how that awareness guides the healing process. With the help of psychotherapist Susan Brenner, the director of Rosen Center East and one of Marion's first students, she describes the origins of her method; how people reveal their emotions in body postures; barriers they set up to love, self-expression, and intimacy, and how Rosen work enables a client to move beyond these barriers. Treatments for asthma, migraine headaches, heart problems, weak immune systems, and psychosomatic illnesses are chronicled. Essays by doctors, psychologists, and Rosen practitioners describe how this method of touch, words, and acceptance guides their work, and complete this remarkable tribute to a visionary woman.

Complementary approaches to health and wellness are widely used and research is needed to provide evidence of their utility. Rosen Method Bodywork (RMB) is a complementary approach with a small, but growing body of evidence. The purpose of this research study was to explore the processes of Rosen Method Bodywork to develop a theoretical framework about what occurs over the course of receiving sessions RMB, both within the recipient and between the recipient and the practitioner. In this grounded theory study, data from interviews of twenty participants was analyzed and a theoretical model of the overall process of RMB was constructed. The model consists of the five integrative phases through which these participants moved within the iterative RMB process from Feeling Stuck and Disconnected to Feeling Connected. Mindfulness is observed to be a central component of the RMB process which participants describe as helpful for trauma recovery. Implications of these findings for mental health care providers, including advanced practice mental health nurses, for Rosen Method Bodywork practitioners, and for future research are discussed.

Presence is essential to existence. With a focus on both universal and human themes, Marilyn studies the meaning and importance of presence in the Rosen Method bodywork practice. She explores how the body armors itself due to emotional experiences that have never found expression. Through sensitive touch to the body, keen observation of the breath, and verbal exchange, the client realizes relaxation of tight muscles and a deeper contact with the inner self. Through presence, the practitioner and client together create a relationship which recognizes the intrinsic worth of each, and through which personal change can effect universal change. As a Franciscan Sister of Mary, Marilyn identifies the Rosen Method as a viable ministry because of the congruence of each system’s expression of presence in daily practice.

While working as a physical therapist in Oakland in the fifties, Marion Rosen was asked by several clients how they could prevent aches and pains and avoid physical therapy treatments. This question inspired Rosen to begin teaching movement classes in 1956. The Rosen Method of Movement describes these preventative exercises in detail. Marion Rosen continued in the next four decades to become, alongside Moshe Feldenkrais, Milton Trager, Ida Rolf, and Alfred Lowen, one of the makor progenitors of a system of bodywork, which connects breathing, emotional responses and body functioning.

Embodied self-awareness is the practice and science of our ability to feel our movements, sensations, and emotions. As infants, before we can speak or conceptualize, we learn to move toward what makes us feel good and away from what makes us feel bad. Our ability to continue to develop and cultivate awareness of such body-based feelings and understanding is essential for learning how to successfully navigate in the physical and social world, as well as for avoiding injury and stress. Embodied self-awareness is made possible by neuromotor and neurohormonal pathways between the brain and the rest of the body, pathways that serve the function of using information about body state to maintain optimal health and well being. When these pathways become compromised, primarily as a result of physical injury or psychological stress and trauma, we lose our ability to monitor and regulate our basic body functions. This book explains the neurological basis of embodied self-awareness, how to enhance self-awareness, and how to regain it after injury or trauma.

An expanded take on traditional Embodied Self-Awareness therapy, ideal for professionals in all areas of body-focused work, including yoga, Feldenkrais, and somatic psychotherapy. Embodied Self-Awareness (ESA) is a somatic approach to mental health that combines touch and talk to connect thoughts, sensations and emotions as they arise within the body. In this book, author and psychologist Alan Fogel introduces restorative ESA, an expansion of traditional ESA. His approach incorporates three new and unique ESA states: Restorative, Modulated, and Dysregulated. We learn about their underlying neuroscience, as well as the many ways they impact our personal and professional lives. According to Fogel, wellness is more than just the ability to regulate and tolerate emotions. Here, he shows us how to access a unique restorative state in order to heal the body, mind and spirit. Of equal importance is the body’s need to rest by shifting from a state of doing to allowing, from activation to receptivity, and from regulation to restoration. Using scientific research and everyday examples, Fogel highlights the critical components needed for feeling more alive, healing and recovering. The practices described in this book are designed to help readers move from dysregulation to a more embodied experience, and are appropriate for all areas of body-focused work, including yoga, Feldenkrais, somatic psychotherapy, craniosacral therapy, body-mind centering, martial arts, massage and bodywork.
