Brain, Cranial Rhythm & Bone Marrow (BCRB)


Class Information
Class Code: 

BCRB is an exciting advanced class for trained cranial osteopaths, craniosacral therapists and biodynamic craniosacral therapists that are ready to take their skills to the next level.


Based on the non-invasive models of Swedenborg, Sutherland and Poyet you will learn to release inter- and intra-osseous lesions in the cranium and peripheral articulations using a bone marrow rhythm.

This class works with the cranial rhythm/cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) and engages the bone marrow as a master rhythm for the bones, joints, muscles, viscera, nerves, vessels and the central nervous system.


You will learn numerous way to diagnose full body lesions using:

  • The Piezoelectric effect
  • The Cranial Rhythm
  • The Fast Lemniscate Rhythm
  • The Bone Marrow motility


You will learn to treat the cranial rhythm or fast lemniscates with:

  • The Directional Impulse - or CHIK technique
  • The Bone Marrow motility


In this class we will:

• Introduce bone marrow: motility, mobility.

• Use bone marrow techniques to release inter- and intra-osseous lesions in cranium and peripheral articulations.

• Treat modulations and lesions of the craniosacral system via the bone marrow.

• Review and apply Swedenborg’s* concepts of brain, spinal cord, spinal nerve, fascia and bone motility.

• Learn motility of the neural tube and spinal nerves

• Introduce how the cranial rhythm shifts and rearranges itself with diverse body positions and touch.

• Deepen understanding of the cranial rhythm / cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) in bone, periosteum, fascia, skin, viscera, nerves and vessels and will introduce the reciprocal/counter motility of the fascia and the opening of the crown.

• Application to fascia, muscle and skin motility in the anterior and posterior aspects of the body, artery, veins, lymphatics, nerves, periosteum. Reciprocal/counter motility of the fascia-muscle and bone.

• Application to viscera motility.

• Specific cranial rhythm of the humerus-ulna, tibia-fibula, hands, feet, sternum, scapula, clavicles, ribs, vertebrae, etc.

• Learn the rapid lemniscate rhythm and its correlation with the cranial rhythm.

• Treat modulation and treatment of the craniosacral system via the bone marrow.

• Full body assessment with the cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI).

• Treat modulation and treatment of the craniosacral system via the full body lemniscate rhythm.

• Full body assessment with the rapid lemniscate rhythm.

• Learn a technique to enter a "still point" in 1-3 seconds.

• Learn a technique to release a "still point" in 1-3 seconds.

• How to optimize a "still point", work with rhythms still present in a still point and use the Elastic Fiber rhythm.

• Correlation cranial sutures, foot and hand articulations.

• Structured water and manual therapy.


*Swedenborg's (1688-1772) described an inherent brain motility, a “primary respiration” as a spiral expansion and constriction. Swedenborg recognized the dura mater as moving reciprocally with the brain. He also mentioned dura motility as well as gave descriptions related to the movement of the cranial bones. He also mentioned for the first time that CSF is “secreted by the blood vessels in the brain” and made the first connection between CSF and the lymphatic system. He also discovered the perivascular spaces, the foramen of Magendie, the pituitary gland, the corpus callosum, etc.



I have been a cranial therapist for more than 25 years. Being introduced to Dr. Chikly's cranial work has opened my eyes to unexpected levels and dimensions I had not been aware of in this field.  Integrating these in-depth techniques into my cranial practice is giving me an edge of excellence I never thought possible.

I have been in practice for 35 years...I just took  Dr Chikly BCRB, I highly recommend it.
He really shows us some amazing new discoveries with the cranial rhythm and bone marrow.
