Bodywork Training Programs and Certification


Rosen Method bodywork training is a rigorous, multi-year program. For those students who wish to pursue certification as a Rosen Method bodywork practitioner, to conduct a private practice and/or work in a professional setting, an internship, including advanced training, and development of a client base must be successfully completed. Prerequisites for training include attending a Rosen Method bodywork introductory workshop or the equivalent.

Requirements for training include: total classroom hours ranging from 266 to 322 hours (depending on the specific training track); personal Rosen Method bodywork sessions; professionally supervised individual practice sessions with clients; and technical and experiential anatomy coursework. After classroom training is completed and students are approved by the training team, an internship period begins. The minimum requirements for internship are 25 hours of personal bodywork, 25 supervisions, 350 client hours, and 5 client reviews.

Note: The requirements listed are the minimum criteria that must be successfully completed at each level. Additional requirements may be requested at the discretion of the school or training center.

For those looking for personal growth opportunities, Rosen Method bodywork training courses can be taken individually without pursuing certification.  The training courses are also opportune for professionals in other modalities looking to expand their knowledge and/or obtain continuing education credits.
