Dr. James Mally interviewed Deane Juhan about his work on February 28, 2011.

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 massage to the level of personal transformation at its greatest expression, profound emotional release and reintegration at its most basic core.

In this interview Deane discusses the beginnings and evolution of his work, and introduces the concepts of some of his latest work.
