TRAINING AND TEACHING Interviewer: What does your colleague do? The same thing or something different? Jelstrup: Jeanne works also with structure and we are in alignment with our philosophies in patient care.
She was educated in critical nursing and then took extra training in massage therapy. She also has her doctorate in nutrition and alternative health care. She trained with a well known chiropractor Dr. M.L. Rees who developed ‘a hands on healing technique’ considered Bio-Vibrational Medicine and etheric modification. She has some very good information.
Along with this, she is the female principle at the Bellevue Wellness Center. She senses things I do not and has more nurturing capacities. Because of her nursing background she is exceptionally very good in analytical work. Integration of many healing techniques is her forte. She also teaches as I mentioned bio-phonics as well as a whole system for natural healing.
Interviewer: I remember speaking with some chiropractors who mentioned they are very disenchanted with chiropractic.
Jelstrup: I have seen many chiropractors; many doctors just talk about their investments, because they can not stand their practice anymore. It is a common phenomenon you often see. They have lost interest in what they are doing. There was not any spark there in the first place. If you are interested in this work, this becomes your life, it becomes your hobby and it becomes everything. I consider myself extremely lucky I fell into this. The only reason I fell into it was I had heard about chiropractic when I still lived in Norway. All the medical clinics there had one thing in common. They threw me out of the office when I mentioned chiropractic. They literally asked me to disappear right then. They pointed to the door and said OUT. Being a stubborn Norwegian this chiropractic no-no really caught my interest.
Interviewer: Why did they do this?
Jelstrup: I do not know. I imagine they thought Chiropractic was the worst. They had such feeling against it. I mean really intense feelings I had to investigate [laughter].Plus it was the opportunity – being 21 years old to hitchhike on a boat to America, an opportunity to see the world. For me this was my ticket.
Interviewer: Now your daughter Kristine is also interested in alternative medicine too?
Jelstrup: Yes, she has done remarkably well with it. She is also a massage therapist and has moved into the preventive health care field as a practitioner in Boston.
