"Lymphatics are the next frontier of discovery in human disease. Long ignored because of their subtlety and complexity, the mysteries of our cellular ‘waste disposal’ system have been comprehensively deciphered by Bruno Chikly."

Mehmet Oz, M.D., Cardiothoracic surgeon, Author of “Healing from the Heart”


"It is an honor and a privilege to be a student with Bruno and Alaya Chikly and the Chikly Health Institute.
As a veteran therapist (37 years) and a continuing ed course junkie, I can say with total conviction that CHI is by far the best; the best teachers, cutting edge material, and the most enjoyable experiences.
Bruno's research and new techniques are amazing. Alaya's visualizations/ meditations on the Brain, etc, allow students to connect at a deep level with the tissues they are learning to feel.
The classes are always relaxed - no sympathetic overload here - and packed with juicy material. This environment encourages each student to reach for their full potential."
