About the Author
Harold Dull BA MA is the president of the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association, and the creator of Watsu,Tantsu and Co-centering. Harold has trained with the creator of Zen Shiatsu in Japan, Shizuto Masunaga, and the two teachers to first introduce it in America, Reuho Yamada and Wataru Ohashi. The profundity and effectiveness of the bodywork forms he has created reflect his passionate practice and deep understanding of energy and the body; the creativity of these forms reflects his background as a poet in the San Francisco Renaissance. His book, Watsu: Freeing the Body in Water, now in its 3rd edition, is an eloquent testament to the power of both his writing and his bodywork. Harold speaks several languages, which allows him to teach his work all over the world. He has been honored with the International Aquatics Award from the United States Water Fitness Association; honored at the National Aquatic Exercise Conference in Japan; and in 1998 received the Tsunami Spirit Award from the Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute.
