Her focus is on areas that are injury specific or “trouble areas” in the body that may normally get over looked in a traditional massage session. Rose gives strong attention to detail and has deep listening skills in the subtle energy body, which can invite a strong sense of safety and provides an overall ease for deeper healing. Rose addresses the body with a beautiful holistic approach through seeing it as a whole and complete system.
