An Organization Devoted to Education, Research & Therapeutic Excellence



To our CHI Students

As many of you are aware, we are all being affected by the novel coronavirus and the spread of it through our communities and countries.

Our first priority is and has always been the health, safety, and wellness of our students. It is with an abundance of caution that we are immediately taking measures to protect the health and lives of not only you as our valued students, but our communities and beyond.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our classes from now until at least April 18th, 2020. We are listening to health officials and taking their recommendations. Many states have already enacted strict measures to mitigate the spread of this virus. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond as required. Once this crisis has passed, we will reschedule our classes, and contact you with the new dates.

For those of you that are already registered for the affected classes, we have moved all registrations to a Holding class. Additionally, we will be contacting you via email, text or phone. Please respond with an email reply at [email protected] or call us at 480-999-0808 or 888-333-1055, Option 1 for any questions or assistance. You can also text us at 423-822-2490.

You can always follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.

We are inspired to continue sharing our education during this pause in our lives.
Dr. Chikly is creating for you mini courses online, they will probably begin in few weeks with the new updated website.  

The theme of the first one will be efficient techniques to treat Voice Dysfunctions, Larynx/Pharynx Post Intubation or Post-Surgical Problems, Tongue-Tie (Ankyloglossia).
You will be amazed to learn how the tongue and larynx are related to so many structures in the body. You will be surprised just how many of your patients can benefit from these techniques.
Many people suffer from trauma to the larynx/pharynx.  It can come from voice overuse, direct trauma, strangulation, surgery, intubation during general anesthesia, chronic laryngitis/bronchitis/mediastinitis, swallowing or breathing conditions, etc.
 Tongue-tie or ankyloglossia is a condition described as having a prevalence of 5% in the general population. But because there is no standardized test or approved grading system the number may be much higher.
In this online mini course, you will learn to work with the three constrictor muscles, the epiglottis, the hyoid, the cricoid, the thyroid cartilage, the corniculate and arytenoid cartilages, the tracheal rings, the SCM, the esophagus and the diaphragm in a specific protocol.

We want you to know that we appreciate your loyalty and greatly value each and every one of you. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

"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 and packed with juicy material. This environment encourages each student to reach for their full potential."

This is an advanced class for trained cranial osteopaths and craniosacral therapists. It will easily complement the techniques you are already applying. It introduces a deep work that engages the bone marrow and its essential relationship with the bones, joints and central nervous system.

In this class we will:

  • Review bone marrow: anatomy, physiology, cellular biology. Introduce bone marrow: motility, mobility.
  • Release of inter- and intra-osseous lesions in cranium and peripheral articulations by the bone marrow.
  • Review and apply *Swedenborg’s concepts of brain, membranes and bone motility.
  • Review and deepen understanding of the cranial rhythm (Cranial Rhythmic Impulse - CRI), in bone, fascia, muscles, skin, nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatic vessels and viscera. and will introduce the reciprocal/counter mobility of the fascia and the opening of the crown, etc.
  • Understand modulation of the craniosacral system via the bone marrow.
  • Learn specific cranial rhythm of the humerus-ulna, tibia-fibula, hands, feet, sternum, scapula, clavicles, ribs, vertebrae, etc.
  • Learn to assessa and treat with the full body lemniscate rhythm.
  • Full body assessment with the cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI).
  • 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 and use the elastic fiber rhythm.
  • Correlation cranial sutures, foot and hand articulations.



  • By the end of the course participants will be able to correctly assess and treat CRI dysfunctions using bone marrow motility.
  • By the end of the course participants will be able to correctly treat inter- and intra-osseous lesions using bone marrow motility.
  • By the end of the course participants will be able to correctly demonstrate the relationship between brain motility, body fascia, muscle, skin, periosteum, nerve, viscera, blood and lymph vessels.
  • By the end of the course participants will be able to correctly assess and treat using the rapid lemniscate rhythm.
  • By the end of the course participants will be able to correctly describe therelationships between the sphenobasilar articulation, tarsal cranial and carpal bones.
