About the Author
Deane Juhan was born in 1945 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and educated at the University of Colorado (BA), the University of Michigan (MA), and the University of California at Berkeley (three and a half years as a doctoral candidate in English literature specializing in William Blake). In 1973 an experience with bodywork at Esalen Institute in Big Sur led to a sudden change in career. Joining the staff at Esalen as bodyworker and instructor (where he remained until 1990), he saw dramatic improvements in a wide variety of conditions as a result of hands-on work and movement reeducation. This quickened his interest in clinical research, and years of study of the physiology of touch and its concrete effects on development, adaption, skill learning, and healing eventually produced Job's Body: A Handbook of Bodywork, as well as the essays in his latest book, Touched by the Goddess: the Physical, Psychological, and Spiritual Powers of Bodywork. He is currently a practitioner of the Trager

I am a Sport & Remedial Massage Therapist and was recommended this book by a colleague. To be honest I found the opening chapters a little hard going, but that may just be me getting used to the style of writing. However the sections dealing with the different aspects of the human body were well presented, and in great depth, but always with an idea that this is for bodyworkers.
A great book.
I am re-reading it right now as a refresher course for a training I am doing to become a Shaw Method swimming teacher and I am inspired and impressed once again by the way Deane Juhan is able to breathe life into explanations of some difficult and potentially very dry anatomy. All in all it is a tour de force up there with Dr. Rolf's masterpiece, and that is saying something!
A technical book and the second half is a close look at the structures of muscles at the cellular level.
