Gerry Crossman - History


Gerry Crossman is a complementary therapist and bodyworker who lives in the Forest of Dean. He has a varied career working on Gloucestershire Highways, a gardener / handyman, fitness instructor and social care worker.

His journey in bodywork started in 1994 with a work related injury that that affected his lumber spine and whiplash in the neck, and by the following year he completed a course in anatomy and physiology and reflexology to look for a solution to rebuild his body.

In 1998 he checked into a course to try out the Bowen technique and has worked exclusively with this therapy since. Gerry also practises other bodywork therapies, practises and teaches Qi Gong and is a teacher of Jive and Swing dance.

His hobbies include walking, organic gardening, Qi Gong, travel, and he is married to Lyn and they have a dog called Wobe.
