My real, true, honest injun' any day, everyday favorite is Julian Walker. His own body-mind integrative Big Sky Bodywork and compassionate fingers have the ability to move energy through my body like lightning bolts of sensation while guiding me to breathe the blocks out of my muscles myself. Of course, Walker is already in this issue for his yoga work (see “Best Compassionate Yogi”), which should disqualify him from the bodywork category because it simply isn't right to give one South African healer two “Best Of” distinctions, regardless of how much he deserves them. And, no, I'm not sleeping with him.
