Product description

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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a real must for bodyworkers as it provides great information on anatomy/physiology from our perspective and then even more information.

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.

This book was first published in 1987 and I am lucky enough to have a signed copy. My first reading, all those years ago, was memorable from the strong feeling of validation for the Hellerwork Structural Integration training and experience I had gained upto that time. Wow! Someone can actually explain in scientific terms how this stuff works right down to a biochemical level, and not only that, he manages to maintain the joy and inspiration of it all too!
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 great book explaining the body well but also some interesting perspectives about the anatomy and how it works as a collective and the recovery process.
A technical book and the second half is a close look at the structures of muscles at the cellular level.
