Thierry Francois, France

I have been a Rosen Method practitioner since 2014 and I am just finishing my training in Rosen Method Movement. I know deeply that Rosen Method is more an Art of Life rather than a method and I try to experience each day like a session. At the same time, I am very involved in the development of the Rosen Method and I like to share my enthusiasm and to be connected all around the world. There are a few Rosen Method professionals in France but we are starting to gather in order to create a Rosen Method Professional Association.

Irma Benarosch, France

I have been involved with the Rosen Method since the 1980s in Finland. I started to take sessions in the end of 90s with Monica Bolling in Paris. Meeting Marion in 2001 in Germany was a kind of profound revelation of what my body had kept hidden! After a long nurse career I permanently changed to Rosen practice and become a Board member of French school, a supervisor and workshop teacher. I am continuing with training to become an intensive teacher. Rosen is a deep path that makes me feel more at ease in my life.

Anette Vinston Ritz, Denmark

I am a member of the Board and MPA group since 2021. I have been a Rosen Method Bodyworker since 2012 and TRE facilitator since 2016. In 2017 I finished a candidate in Sport and Health with a focus at the body oriented philosophy; phenomenology and Rosen Method Bodywork. A part of my thesis was rewritten and became an article in International Journal of Rosen Method Bodywork 2018. I work only part time as a result of having Complex PTSD from severe childhood trauma. Right now I am having my workability cleared to something called a "flexjob" we have in Denmark. I am so lucky it can happen in a newly opened institute for treating people who have been sexually abused. In this place I offer treatments in Rosen Method Bodywork and TRE (Trauma Release Exercises). I enjoy the depths of developing through Rosen Method Bodywork in my own life and heeling. And I look forward to join the international group.

Elyze Stewart, USA

I came from Montréal, Canada in 1979 to study natural healing and massage in Santa Fe New Mexico. It was there that I studied and received sessions from Starr Blacker who had studied with Marion Rosen in California. Starr’s work was so profound and transformational that I decided to move to California to learn from Marion. I became a Rosen Method Bodywork practitioner in 1990. I have also continued studying other modalities, mainly osteopathic and cranial sacral techniques and somatic oriented spiritual transformation. I have maintained a private practice in bodywork since 1980. I was very fortunate to be part of a small ongoing group that studied with Marion in her home and her country home from 2005 until Marion could no longer teach. We questioned and explored hands on how to go deeper with the work. I am also a Rosen Method Primary Supervisor and Bodywork teacher and learning Rosen Movement. Rosen Method is an ongoing journey that enriches and inspires my life. I feel eternally grateful.
