Marion Rosen is a pioneer in the field of mind-body healing. She was one of the first to discover the relationship between our emotional lives and the condition of our bodies. She developed a system of bodywork so effective that clients release old emotional pain, their relationships improve, and their work life becomes better. As she explains, “By relaxing the muscles, what comes up is some of these [painful] experiences. Instead of holding them down and trying to forget about them, you can handle them.” The results are more far reaching than even Ms. Rosen initially expected. She’s discovered that real physical and emotional release changes the way people live, and even makes a difference in the lives of their family members and all the people they touch day-to-day. At the very least, the Rosen Method may be the key you’ve been looking for to help you be free of pain once again, and regain your own aliveness. (hosted by Michael Toms and Darca Nicholson)
