Laura Jenson, LMT
Laura Jensen, LMT, E-RYT 500, offers Rosen Method Bodywork, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Reiki, and Hatha Yoga sessions. All are designed to work with (un)conscious holding in the body and gently release tension by bringing awareness and movement to those areas, affecting both emotional and physical relief. She has been teaching Yoga and practicing Massage for over 20 years. She has trained at the Finger Lakes School of Massage and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, as well as with many other well known professionals over the years. She started her career in NY and has recently moved to the South Jersey area and is excited to bring health and wellness to you.
Rosen Method Bodywork promotes relaxation and well-being through a unique combination of touch and talk. It explores the relationships between muscle tension, the breath, and emotions - the connections between mind, body, and spirit.
Some people come to Rosen for help with physical or emotional pain. Others are interested in personal or spiritual growth. Each person has different needs and derives different benefits, but we all long to feel at home and connected with ourselves and others.
Sessions are one hour. You will lie covered on a massage table, having removed as much outer clothing as you are comfortable with, always keeping on undergarments. No oils are used. My hands will listen, making gentle and direct contact with the muscle tension in your body. Combined with verbal support, this touch facilitates greater awareness of what you are feeling physically and emotionally. The safety of the environment promotes relaxation and allows the possibility for suppressed feelings, attitudes and memories to emerge. Gradually, tension releases, opening you to greater ease, emotional freedom, and a deeper connection to your authentic self. The relationship we develop, based on trust and acceptance, is an important aspect of the work.
Laura teaches an alignment based yoga class using breath, movement, and meditation to gently open and energize body, mind and spirit.
Each class will begin with Pranayama (breathwork) to ground and center us, then we will practice a series of asana (poses) to bring prana and mobility to all parts of the body. We will end with a meditation or restorative pose and savasana to allow for integration and any insights to arise. Class is all levels, with options given to challenge or rest.
