• Teacher Bios:
Gerrie G. Kruyswijk-Ensing

In 2013 I married Thomas Kruyswijk ( a colleague Physical and Bowen the
rapist and Emmett practitioner).
I finished my study in Physical Therapy in 1979 and have since worked in
three different private practices.
Also, for about 20 years, I have given physical-therapy-gym classes to
groups of seniors (over 50).
After some years I realized that I was only treating my patients’ symptoms
and not the causes and so I began to work from a different point of view.
I Studied:
▪Connective Tissue Massage (a fascia therapy)
▪I became a Reiki master
▪Touch for Health
▪Jin Shin Jyutsu (Japanese acupressure)
▪Dorn
▪Breuss massage
▪Cupping
▪Dr. Nogier’s Auriculotherapy, Wrist diagnosis and Acupuncture.
▪Bowen
▪Emmett
I like the Chinese way of thinking which says that a human is like an apple
tree that has:
Healthy roots, a nice, straight trunk and a crown with apples. When there is
discomfort/pain you should treat the roots (causes) rather than the apples
(symptoms)
When it became apparent that a lot of people are afraid of needles, I started
looking for an alternative; and that alternative was Bowen.
Bowen is a holistic therapy that stimulates
the self-healing capacity of the
body.

With Bowen you can:
▪balance the autonomic nervous system (which controls over 80% of
bodily functions)

▪stimulate lymphatic circulation and drainage
▪relax the fascia.
Fascia is the tissue that connects everything in the body: muscles, bones,
internal organs and nervous system.
In my practice I have integrated the principles and techniques of the various
therapies that I have learned, in order to treat my clients in the best possible way.
