Harold Dull (USA) is the the creator of Watsu?, Tantsu? and the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Registry which stores the transcripts of students around the world. Harold trained with the creator of Zen Shiatsu in Japan, Shizuto Masunaga, and the teachers who brought Zen Shiatsu to 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 three Watsu books, a new Tantsu book and a collection of his poetry as well as several of his DVDs are available. Harold speaks several languages,which helps him teach his work all over the world. He has been awarded by Water Fitness and Aquatic Therapy associations. Once he compleated developing the forms needed in clinics and spas around the world, Harold turned his attention to developing complementary paths that can make Watsu and Tantsu's potential for connection and the creative engagement of our life force universally available, a new humanism in which everybody can float or hold each other without intention.

Brought Watsu to Poland and Russia helping to develop structures for communities, as well as supporting developing communities in many other countries.

His clinical practice focuses on athletes, specializing in working with athletes of the highest level in their disciplines. He has worked with athletes training and competing in handball, football, athletics, whitewater kayaking, fencing, skiing, in clubs and with national teams (of Poland, Tunisia, France, Qatar). He has worked with many Olympic Champions, World Champions, European Champions and World Record holders, including: R. Korzeniowski (athletics), J. Kowalczyk (skiing), K. Skolimowska (athletics), S.
