This page introduce to only some of the best testimonials and feedback I have received from many clients during the course of my career.
Dr. Kaneko, Director of the Shiatsu Massage School of California, Nov 1996
This letter is to certify the enrollment of Mr. (Asaf) Shnabel in our school. Mr. Shnabel is a dedicated student and has exhibited a high quality of professionalism in class. His grades and reviews are outstanding.
His knowledge and talent were most evident in the Intern clinic where he practiced Shiatsu-Anma on our clients. Asaf was often requested by our longtime clients. Clients participating in the Intern Clinic are often asked to write an evaluation of the treatment and to rate the Intern. Those worked on by Mr. Shnabel consistently rated him as superior, our highest category, indicating that Asaf was a true talent with strengths in personality and professionalism.
We consider Asaf to be an outstanding graduate of the Shiatsu Massage School of California.

I would like to bless you for your work as a Shiatsu Therapist. The treatments were very effective for body & mind. Every point that was pressed healed. Every point that was pressed healed.
Asi, not only the treatment helped, but also the conversations with you about life contributed a lot to me.
Nowadays, long after the treatments, I still remember every advice you gave. You have instructed me and made me open myself to new possibilities in several fields of life.
Blessings for your deeds. Wishing you success where ever you turn from the bottom of my heart.

Dr. Conley A., CCAM, 2011
I wish to give my first-hand recommendation on behalf of Mr. Asaf (Asi) Shnabel. Being a professional myself for 44 years who taught many students for over 30 years, specializing in Spinal & Joints therapy with holistic approach, I experienced Mr. Shnabel's hands once weekly for the past 3 years. I enjoyed his approach as well as his attitude and detection of bodily matters confronted him.
He is also much devoted and dedicated to AIKIDO practice and is loved and admired by his students whom he instructed.
His touch is safe, delicate and yet firm, he has a good observation of things. He also keeps positive relationships with his patients and with colleagues.
Shmuel Tatz PT-PhD, Nov 2011
This letter is to endorse Mr. Asaf (Asi) Shnabel as a proficient and dedicated Shiatsu specialist. I have been personally treated by Mr Shnabel and, in my professional opinion, have found the sessions very effective.
Numerous former patients of mine have also assessed Mr. Shnabel favorably and recommended him to me after undergoing extensive courses of treatment. Indeed, in my follow-up evaluations of them, I have observed a significant improvement as a result of his care.
Dr M. Priman ND, "Physical Institute Medical Center", Holon/Israel 2012
Asaf (aka Asi) Has worked with us for about a year. During that time of work we learned that he is a UNIQUE therapist.
Asaf, a knowledgeable therapist, can empathize and relate to the source of the patient's problems, the reason for their need of treatments, and the best way to treat it for maximum effect.
He is a therapist that "feels" his patients, aware of their problems and knows exactly where to touch and treat.
Anyone who works in the field of Alternative medicine knows that patience is much needed to work with patients due to their great suffering and frustration, and regarding that, Asaf with no doubt
the right profession for him.
We were sorry to allow him to leave and wish him success in his new way. We are confident that his future patients will benefit from his kind and pleasant personality.

I was thinking about sending you a note.
My arm is holding the improvements well, so I am able to work more again. I am also stretching my neck every day and being much more careful about my posture,

Asi's vast knowledge, level of care, and technique has re-engaged my body & restored range of movement. I can not wait to have more of my friends experience this exact relief from any sort of body ache.

Great shiatsu!!! Asi is a excellent practitioner!! I'm a massage therapist myself and pretty picky about who I go to.. I was referred by a friend and glad I went! Asi is intuitive and has great pressure. I'll be back.
Claudia N. , 2021
I have known Asi for a few years and have received many Shiatsu treatments from him. He is a very talented and kind human being, funny too! Normally I am not a fan of Shiatsu, I prefer deep tissue, but I do like his approach and he is always helping me feel better.
I had a series of treatments with Asi and felt better after each one. He also guided me with how to keep myself healthy. I would strongly recommend him.
