About the Author
Dave then began attracting clients who'd done lots of spiritual work but hadn't seen improvements using traditional, alternative, or complementary modalities. He was able to intuit that his client's pains and illness weren't their own; that their empathic abilities made them an "energetic sponge."
A native New Yorker with a wry sense of humor, Dave works in-person and by phone/Skype from his new location, Portland, Oregon.

Secondly, I never thought of myself as an empath entirely, until I read this book. I'm a massage therapist by trade and have been so for a very long time. I do my work and move on to the next client, over and over again, not thinking too much about it, other than wanting to help heal my client. However, there have been times that I have felt the pain of my client, to the point of helping heal a debilitating frozen shoulder, then feeling it transfer to my shoulder within hours, putting me out of work for three weeks, whence I had it worked on almost daily to get me back to work. Or, seeing a client who was drained when she came in, then I, after the client leaves, is as drained as her, to the point that I could fall asleep.
Anyway, I digress. The book was fantastic. Dave Markowitz did a splendid job of blending his stories, his research, his education, and his client cases to the reader, giving us very applicable and practical advice and techniques to work with. I give this five stars. Excellent job!
