Editorial Reviews

Review

"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." (Massage Magazine)

"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)

About the Author

Director of the Healthsprings Clinic in Boulder, Colorado, Carl Dubitsky has studied and practiced shiatsu, Amma, and martial arts massage for more than 20 years under such widely known Asian masters as Koichi Nakamura, Eizo Ninomiya, DoAnn T. Kaneko, and Soo Se Cho, in addition to studies at the Swedish Institute for Medical Massage in New York City and advanced work with Owen James, an original student of Ida Rolf.

Format: Paperback
Hi, this book is wonderful! Written with the intent of combining the educational text book information but including pictures, diagrams and language that would enable one with no formal experience learn some shiatsu massage skills. I am working towards my massage therapy license and this book is a gem. I unfortunately bought this book from a store a and am kicking my-self for not going through Amazon.com, because I would have saved money. Oh well live and learn... ;-)

Format: Paperback
This book is used by my massage school as a support in the teaching of shiatsu. I found it extremely useful and helpful for someone who started learning about shiatsu. The book really goes into details about the origins and objectives of shiatsu, as well as the TCM (traditionnal chinese medicine). Half of the book focuses on theory (yin/yang, five elements, the meridians, the organs, the body fluids, the acupoints, then TCM...)the other half focuses on a shiatsu routine design for a first degree shiatsu treatment. I read it three times already. There is a lot to assimilate. Hopefully Mr Dubitsky will write a volume two and a volume three soon...

I purchased this book because I wanted a concise explanation of the oriental medicine view of chi and I was not disappointed. This book is dated in that the illustrations don't jump out at you as in more modern books. Frankly, you really need an instructor to learn the art of shiatsu. However, the theory behind it is pretty much contained in this book. A must addition to your oriental medicine library.

It's a fairly decent book. Need's some work however, could use a better listing and definitions in general when it comes to items that can be placed into a list as opposed to a huge paragraph that fumbles on. In the practical part of massaging, introducing a template of a massage would be helpful in understanding a routine one can do.
