Book: What your aches and pains are telling you, Inner traditions editions.
Tell me where it hurts and I’ll tell you why. The sens of diseases in Shiatsu therapy.
This will be a session about the subject of the meaning of diseases in Shiatsu therapy. How did the TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine) develop the concept of mind/body relationship and how it can be used in Shiatsu therapy.
Through that way of treatment, health is understood as a global harmony between body and mind.
Emotional traumas, way of life and ways of thinking are the roots of diseases. Therefore, therapy must include understanding to help the patient to go back to harmony. To do that, energy work with specific Shiatsu points is a very efficient technique.
Odoul’s bestseller “Dis moi où tu as mal, je te dirai pourquoi”, is published in English (What your aches and pains are telling you, Inner traditions editions), in Italian, Chinese, Polish, and several European or Far Eastern languages.
Many videos (in French) are also available on youtube about his work.
