Go beyond your suffering; be more than you think you can be, live your fullest life! Why not?
I decided to name my business and practice The Mindful Body because I felt it accurately reflected the healing process that is Rosen Method Bodywork. According to Wikipedia, mindfulness is defined as the “psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment”. In Buddhist teachings mindfulness is used to develop self-knowledge and inner wisdom that eventually lead to enlightenment and the freedom from suffering. Rosen Method Bodywork invites awareness within the body and assists people in the process of allowing themselves to connect and experience themselves more deeply along with any unconscious emotion that has been held as tension in the body.
Rosen Method Bodywork Practitioners work with the breath, the unconscious muscular tension and habitual survival responses in the body using gentle present touch and words. Once allowed, emotion and experiences from the past can be felt and integrated slowly which then create new possibilities for wellbeing and vitality for the client. What makes this possible is the client’s simultaneous experiencing of the present moment that comes from the co-regulation with the practitioner’s nervous system as they support the client’s process. An increase in capacity for resilience, wellbeing and embodied self-awareness are the result. WELCOME TO THE MINDFUL BODY!
