Dr. Bob Gensler
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Gensler is celebrating more than 35 years of service, specializing in gentle-low force chiropractic. He received training from Dr. Richard Van Rumpt, the founder of Directional Non-Force Technique. Dr. Gensler was honored by Dr. Van Rumpt to write his memorial for the chiropractic journals.
Dr. Gensler’s gentle treatment methods are effective for all ages including pregnant women, infants and children, and seniors.
Dr. Gensler obtained a Master’s of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School before studying chiropractic. Dr. Gensler was initially attracted to chiropractic because of its healing philosophy. Chiropractic teaches that healing occurs from the inside out and that the body is better able to heal itself when the spine is in proper alignment and the nervous system is able to express itself without interference. Dr. Gensler’s strong philosophical background brings more to his relationship with his patients.
Dr. Gensler’s gentle approach is a perfect compliment to the style of yoga that his business partner and wife, Marysia teaches at the in-office Yoga Studio. Marysia Gensler received her yoga certification in the Iyengar method and studies with the renowned teachers, Patricia Walden and Peentz Dubble.
Chestnut Hill Chiropractic began in 1981 in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, offering chiropractic and yoga. The vision of the practice grew to include massage and nutrition. In 2007 we moved to Wells Avenue in Newton. We have created a beautiful and healthy environment in which you will see pleasing art exhibits and hear relaxing music to enhance your healing. As a classical guitarist Dr. Gensler recognizes the importance of music to create an atmosphere of relaxation and has complied a recording of a unique blend of classical, jazz and folk music which plays at the Office.
Marysia began studying yoga over 30 years ago, at the age of 18. When she began her initial yoga studies, she observed the difficulty some students had due to their inability to move through the stiffness in their bodies. For this reason, she decided to focus on the therapeutic style of yoga called Iyengar. Marysia offers individual private instruction for 30 minute sessions. The sessions review ergonomics and posture to help support spinal alignment and yoga poses to strengthen and increase mobility.
