LDT1.  If you are not completely comfortable with the 1st rhythm of lymph and feeling the direction of the lymph flow, please wait for LDT2 to take this class, as we will use these techniques a lot for the viscera in LDV.

Advance study of anatomy is a pre-requisite for this class. Review the list of words and see where your stand with your knowledge. It is very important that you prepare for this class in advance - even if you don't plan to attend the class for years, it is not too early to begin your study of these structures. We have provided a list of terms below you need to study before attending this course.
Most anatomical reference book on the abdomen and pelvic section will refer to these terms. For example, Netter's 4th edition, section III, IV and V.

  • - Parietal and visceral peritoneum

  • - Liver, gallbladder, coronary ligament , triangular ligament, falciform ligament.

  • - Stomach, greater and lesser curvatures of the stiomach, gastrophrenic ligament, gastrocolic ligament, gastrosplenic ligament, pylorus.

  • - Duodenum, D1 to D4, muscle/ligament of Treitz*, cysticoduodenal  ligament

  • - Inferior duodenal fold

  • - Greater and lesser omentum

  • - Colon flexures

  • - Toldt's fascia*

  • - Sigmoid colon, Rectum

  • - Mesocolon, Mesotransverse

  • - Splenocolic ligament

  • - Renocolic (kidney to colon) ligament

  • - Ceco-ovarian (cecum to ovary) ligament (or ligament of Cleyet)*

  • - Root of mesentery

  • - Pancreas, spleen

  • - Pancreaticosplenic ligament

  • - Splenorenal ligament

  • - Bladder,  Ureter, pubovesical ligament

  • - Median (urachus) and medial umbilical ligaments

  • - Uterus, ovaries, fallopian tube, sacrum

  • - Broad ligament

     a. Cardinal ligament / lateral cervical ligament*(a continuity of Broad ligament)

     b. Mesosalpinx (a continuity of the Broad ligament)

     c. Mesovarium*(a continuity of the Broad ligament)

  • - Round ligament

  • - Suspensory ligament of ovary (or lumbo-ovarian ligament)*

  • - Utero-ovarian ligament

  • - Obturator internus muscle, obturator foramen

  • - Pelvic floor

Practice your Lympho-Fascia Release (LFR) technique in preparation for LDV-AP

 

*These terms are often not labeled in North American anatomy texts. However, these structures are quite often visible in anatomical drawings.

The LDV class is one of the most important classes anyone can take. The visceral component is a huge missing-piece to the puzzle of bodywork. Bruno's work is an easy and comprehensive approach to working with the organs. One of the most unique pieces is the way we learn how the viscera are interacting with each other. My favorite part is working with the pericardium and its many relationships. This class is a must for everyone. You will be surprised at how much the viscera are involved in pain and mobility problems.

Terry Schibler, LMT
Chikly Health Institute

After 6 months of using the new tools that we learned at LDV I can honestly say, it made a huge difference in the results with my patients. Everyday I am amazed with what I am able to achieve using this absolutely wonderful technique. I can only recommend that anyone who is serious about Lymph Drainage and wants the best for their patients, to take this course!

Franzi Cassidy, RMT
Chikly Health Institute

LDV was the coursework that really opened up the power of lymphatic drainage in my practice. I was immediately able to use this material my first day back to work. The detailed anatomical specificity, combined with LDT technique has brought relief to many clients of mine who had not had success with any other treatment. Dr Chikly's work is brilliant, elegant, and profound. I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to study directly with him and his highly skilled instructors.

Piper Jones, LMT, LLCC
Chikly Health Institute

The Visceral Lymphatic work I learned from Bruno Chikly has been a tremendous asset both professionally and personally. The lymphatic visceral work has a beautiful flow to it connecting all the organ systems together in an integrative way. On a personal level I was recently exposed to pesticides and became very ill with a burning sensation throughout my body and the lymphatic visceral work completely resolved the burning and the pain throughout my organs. The other advanced courses Bruno has taught have been so valuable and I use the techniques daily to assist my clients to resolve brain and spinal cord issues. My clients are amazed that such a light touch could be so powerful in resolving issues. I highly recommend the advanced and the visceral lymphatic curriculum to those who want to practice very special and highly evolved skills to facilitate healing for their clients.
