Little did I know how profound a Rosen Bodywork Session with Theresa Garcia would be–after all it just felt like a very gentle massage session. But in the hours following I felt exactly like I do after an acupuncture session–like my body (and mind) were being reorganized. I felt tired and spacey in the hours after the session, but the next day I felt so wonderful. I was relaxed, my mind was clear, my muscles were less tense, and I had great energy. So what had happened during my Rosen session?
Listen to Theresa explain; “My work is all about Embodied Presence. I am a CAMTC Somatic Therapist and passionately believe that unconscious muscle tension is where our deepest attitudes and beliefs live and hide. I use Rosen Method Bodywork sessions and Rosen Method Movement classes to help you connect with new possibilities for living in your fullness.
The 60 minute Rosen Method Bodywork Session is designed for people who want an integrated way of getting both relaxation and inner-connection with themselves. It’s for people looking for a different avenue to personal growth that includes their whole self.
It is a private, one-one bodywork session that some people say looks like massage and feels like psychotherapy, sort of like psychotherapy for the body (but I’m not a psychotherapist and my work is not a substitute for psychotherapy, but a great complement to it). Clients leave feeling deeply relaxed, and often connected to elements of themselves they didn’t know needed connecting. Sometimes the results are as simple as relaxation, other times the results are profound realizations of how they live in their lives.
When you are lying on my massage table, there is virtually nothing for your muscles to do. So, we might ask, what are you doing in there with all those tight muscles? What are you working so hard on, while the table is holding you up? What is so important that you are giving your precious energy to it without conscious purpose? Plenty! Unconscious muscle tension is where our deepest attitudes and beliefs live and hide. This is fertile ground for gaining self-awareness, connecting with our modes of self-preservation, and stepping into new possibilities for living in our fullness now.
My belief, my philosophy, my passion is that extra effort in our bodies translates to extra effort in our lives. When we connect with chronic muscle tension, chronic ways of holding ourselves together that were necessary at one time, then our nervous systems can come to a new place and ask ‘do I need that’ and let go of old habits and beliefs that make life a lot harder than it needs to be. My work is all about allowing ease in your body as a path toward more ease in your life. It’s very much about cultivating embodied awareness, honoring our vulnerability, and giving space to our deepest truth. All through the body.”
“I’ve tried many different types of bodywork, but nothing compares to The Rosen Method. I have had profound emotional breakthroughs during a session. I usually feel lighter, more at peace and about two inches taller every time I get off the table. I can’t say enough positive things about Theresa. She is kind, attentive, receptive, highly intuitive, very knowledgeable about the workings of the body, and extremely gifted at what she does”. KM in SF
