The Rosen Method includes light touch, but since we are separated, I am offering remote sessions on the phone. In many years of working remotely, I have developed the ability to follow, with my own body, the changes in the bodies of my remote clients. They have confirmed that this way of working was also greatly beneficial.
Based on teachings developed by master physical therapist Marion Rosen in the 1960s, my class in Berkeley, California, offers safe, gentle movement to music, progressing from small, simple moves to larger, more complex ones. Rosen, who died at 97 and taught movement until she was in her 80s, called her method “physical therapy in reverse” because she created it in response to clients asking how they could avoid needing physical therapy.
