NER-L
  • NER-L is a profound, easy, and original way to release ligaments (and tendons). We will release and reset them using a mesoderm technique and fine-tune the release with endodermic and ectodermic techniques. The technique feels amazing to receive, and the effects are often felt during the day as a warm unfolding.
     
  • Ligaments stabilize the whole bony structure. It is essential to work with them to align and strengthen the whole bony framework.
     
  • We will go over most skeletal ligaments in the body. We will work, for example, with the iliolumbar ligament, sacrotuberous ligament, sacrospinous ligament, anterior and posterior coccygeal ligaments, three levels for the sacroiliac joint, anterior/posterior pubic symphysis, inguinal ligament, lacunar ligament. pectineal ligament the ligaments around the vertebrae such as the anterior and posterior longitudinal ligament, ligamentum flavum, interspinous ligament, supraspinous ligament, etc.
     
  • Releasing the ligaments of the mandible, for example, may give you immediate effects with TMJ problems or clicking of the joint.
     
  • Releasing the ligaments of the thyroid and cricoid cartilages often helps relieve vocal dysfunction.

 

We will go over numerous labs to address most of the ligaments of the body (and a few tendons):

Lab 1: Sacrotuberous, sacrospinous, sacroiliac ligaments, interosseous sacroiliac ligaments.

I just want to reach out and tell you how wonderful it is to have the Zoom classes, to be able to see and hear you both. This class was one I knew I couldn’t miss, and it fulfilled all my hopes. So many of my glitches were addressed! The ligaments were truly the missing link. I’m eager to use it for clients, makes me want to not be retired! I will still see select people and I know it will be an answer for many of them as well.

We are so grateful that the Chikly Institute has seamlessly adapted by bringing their cutting edge classes to students worldwide via online webinars, without sacrificing quality and in-depth instruction.  Bruno and Alaya's breakthrough work in both manual and emotional therapy is pivotable to the integrative care and techniques we bring to our patients, and thanks to the quality of their online classes, we can continue expanding our skills even during these trying times.

Today is a big milestone for me. In 2012, I first learned about the Chikly Health Institute and had to wait longingly for the time I would be able to have the resources to begin the program. Three years ago I took a deep dive into the coursework, and as of today, I have now completed all of Chikly Health Institute courses in the Lymphatic, Brain, and Heart Centered Therapy (HCT) programs*. This education has radically altered the way I practice my work and the health issues I can address with my clients. The classes are comprehensive, rich in content and experiential learning, and delivered with the highest professional standards. When I began the classes with LDT 1, it immediately became apparent how essential the integration of the Lymphatic, Brain and HCT programs was going to be to ultimately be able to have an elegant intersection of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of manual treatment. This curriculum is a pinnacle of excellence in bio-psycho-social hands on manual therapy. This is a truly unique program. Many of my colleagues in the classes with far more experience in other CEU training programs, repeatedly commented how superior the classes where with the Chikly Health Institute. Since I had dropped all of my eggs in this one primary CEU basket, I was thrilled to know I had made an extraordinary choice. In March 2020, when the world was turned upside down by the Covid19 pandemic, Dr Chikly and Alaya and the entire staff of teachers and administrative team made an extraordinary pivot from live to online classes showing their tremendous commitment to continue this great work and meet the demands for their student's advanced education. I have great gratitude for them all and look forward to all of the new work Dr. Chikly and Alaya will continue to develop and teach.

l love this course! I use what I have learned in Bruno Chikly's courses with every patient. 

Laura Disenhaus, PT, DOMP, D.Sc.O
Chikly Health Institute

I love all of Bruno Chikly’s courses. I combine all the techniques he teaches with all the other techniques I’ve learned through other curriculums and his techniques really take my skills to a deeper level. My clients definitely benefit.

Brain work / FAR / NERL: I used all these techniques on my friend post stroke. He tripped on his cat and hit the right side of his neck on the sink in his bathroom. Collapsed an artery on the right side. I went up to visit him Memorial Day weekend. His right pupil (eye) was 2x the size of the left, he had foot drop on the left side and could not lift his arms above his head. I didn't want to do too much. Post treatment - He had no foot drop, pupils were the same size, better ROM in shoulders/arms, coloring was back to pink and healthy looking. He was actually skipping up and down the stairs afterword.

He is only 55, I think that had something to do with it as well. This was not temporary. He is still doing a lot better! Thank you for etching us to help others.
