Treating Trauma with Rosen Method Bodywork


500 Brookford Rd., Syracuse NY13224

Understanding how to address physiological changes made by trauma

At Christ the King Retreat House and Conference Center

500 Brookford Rd., Syracuse NY13224

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder isn't just “in the head.” Trauma and abuse cause physiological damage that survivors can't think or talk their way out of. They need an intervention that includes the body.

Rosen Method Bodywork is the only modality that integrates these four crucial requirements of healing from trauma: 1. restoring “embodied self-awareness,”  2. establishing the somatic resonance between client and practitioner through both touch and talk, creating a safe container  which brings the sympathetic nervous system within its range of optimal functioning and healing; 3. addressing  the feedback loop between the diaphragm and the amygdala which keeps survivors in fear and hypervigilance, and 4. rewiring how memories are stored. 

Learn what happens to the brain during trauma, how to recognize which dissociative symptoms are displayed by clients, and how to support them to reintegrate.
