Deane Juhan


Deane Juhan may be best known as the author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork – which many consider the essential text on the means, methods, uses, and deeply personal applications of what has come to be known as “bodywork” – a vast, sophisticated series of modalities and techniques that take movement therapy and education to the level of personal transformation at its greatest expression, profound emotional release and reintegration at its most basic core.

Deane is able to look back and recognize the influence of his mother, a beautician who also provided scalp massage to her loyal clientele, but he began his entry into adulthood as a young scholar, in particular a student of Willliam Blake. It was his experiences at the Esalen Institute, in particular meeting and studying with Dr. Milton Trager, which led Deane eventually into the nine year research and writing project that emerged as Job’s Body.
