"A well-reseached and thoughtful bridge between bodywork and modern medicine...its thoroughness and precision provide the depth of concrete information that is missing from virtualy all other works."
--Dean Juhan, author of Job's Body
"Carl Dubitsky brings compassion and expertise to his therapeutic and educational endeavors. His work is powerful and effective."
--Robert K. King, Past President, American Massage Therapy Assoc.
"A monumental effort and a 'must read' text for professional practitioners of Oriental bodywork therapy or massage therapists interested in Oriental bodywork therapy. The book is meticulously researched, and very well-written in fabulous detail with cited sources."
"Packed with valuable information presented in a clear, concise, and useful manner, Bodywork Shiatsu takes the mystery out of energy work. A well-researched and thoughtful bridge between body work and modern medicine and between the mutually supportive truths of ancient and modern sciences. It is a significant exploration into the concrete anatomical, physiological, and neurological reasons why shiatsu in particular--and bodywork in general--can be such effective therapeutic tools."
