Graduating the Shiatsu Massage School of California (Nov 1996):
Mr. Shnabel is a dedicated student and has exhibited a high quality of professionalism in class. His grades and reviews have been outstanding.
His knowledge and talent were most evident juring our intern clinic where he practiced Shiatsu on our clients.Asaf was often requested by many of our long-time clients. Clients participating in the intern clinic are asked to write an evaluation of the Shiatsu treatment and to rate the intern.Those worked on by Mr. Shnabel consistently rated him as superior- our highest category, indicating that he was a true tallent with strengths in personality and professionalism.
Our school has selected Mr. Shnabel to become a member of the Shiatsu Massage School Alumni, an honor given to the students with a desire to remain active in the school after his graduation. His knowledge can than be enjoyed by future students and present Alumni
members during our quarterly meetings.
We consider Asi to be an outstanding graduate of the Shiatsu Massage School of California.

Sensei Asaf (Asi),
You have opened our eyes to a wonderful world that addaed joy and flavour to our life. You made us realize we can do it, and there is a lot more to learn the more we practice.
And so it kept on and turn into a routine. Same day, same hour, and we believed it will always be that way: you are the teacher, we are the students...
But unlike in fary-tales, after years of dedication you need a break, too. So we keep on walking that way and it wont be easy, for we are searching for a teacher like you- an extraordinary one!
But we shall not stop from training because there is no other choice, and we know we shall meet again hopefully someday soon.
Good luck with all your deeds and fare well-
See you on the mat!
Your students at Aikido Kiryat-Ono
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 a 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 devoted 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.
Please feel free to contact me for further information and/or evaluation.

This letter is to endorse Mr. Shnabel as a proficient and dedicated Shiatsu specialist. I have been personally treated by Mr. Shnabel and, in my profesional opinion have found the sessions very effective.
Numerous former patients of mine have also assessed Mr Shnabel favourably and recommended him to me after undergoing extensive course of treatment. Indeed in my follow-up evaluation of them I have observed significant improvement as a result of his care.

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, which helps my neck and back. So, many thanks for the work you did, and the suggestions you made.
