After 17 years of Aikido practice and teaching, Michel Odoul studied Oriental Energetics for 8 years. Since 1978, he works with Shiatsu and Acupressure techniques. Furthermore, he studied relaxation techniques and modern psychology for 7 years and is a qualified practitioner.

In addition to his work as a practitioner and teacher, Michel Odoul is the author of many books of reference in the field of Body-mind-energy relations. As a result of the increasing demand he received for training, he founded his Shiatsu training School in 1996.

Renowned practitioner and acclaimed teacher, Michel Odoul has adapted training courses to meet the needs of a wide public, from beginners to certification training. His pioneering work in the field of Body-mind energy work led to the development of his revolutionary concept of “Applied Corporal Psychology”. This approach deciphers the symptoms of disease expressed by our bodies, thus making sense of dis-ease.

Michel Odoul gives conferences all over France and abroad. His books have already been translated from French into German, Spanish and Italian. He is a respected teacher in the fields of Oriental Energetic Therapies and Body/mind relationships.

The quality of his work and research is widely acknowledged and appreciated. In addition to the introductory courses for personal interest, he dispenses certification training for health practitioners such as Osteopaths, Physiotherapist, Nurses and Medical Doctors. He also intervenes in the business world, both in the public sector (for example : public health services) and private sector (both small companies and corporate international groups).
