Rosen Method Bodywork

Dr. Dana Michaels ND Naturopathic Doctor

Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or struggle with anxiety, depression, or stress?

With gentle, non-invasive touch, Valerie works with clients to bring awareness of  unnecessary holdings to bring relief to tension and pain, and to find more ease in the body. Rosen bodywork can help you move past your barriers, to rediscover who you really are and become who you are meant to be.

Valerie has been practicing bodywork since 1979. She is certified as both Rosen Practitioner and Instructor. Valerie was personally trained by and taught classes with Founder Marion Rosen in the US and internationally.  Valerie brings much knowledge and experience to her practice from her various roles, as a bodyworker, as a Hospice chaplain, as a house mother of a home for disabled children, and as a co-worker of Mother Teresa for 7 years helping those in need in the community.
