"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 virtually 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."
(Yolanda Ahser, Massage Therapy Journal)
