"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."
"Bruno Chikly's Lymph Drainage Therapy is a breakthrough in the field of manual therapies, and this book is an important and long-waited addition to medical/osteopathic literature."
Jean Pierre Barral, D.O., M.R.O.F. Developer of the Visceral Manipulation curriculum
"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."

have had fibromyalgia for about 15 years and I have tried all kinds of therapies such as chiropractic, deep massage, allopathic and energy therapy. I was left with the feeling that I would never be able to get better and that I would have to settle for this. I have never felt as much improvement after only ONE session with Dr. Bruno Chikly. For the first time in about 12 years I had a really good undisturbed night sleep. I woke up relaxed and refreshed without any stiffness. When I move during the day I feel almost no pain. My hope is restored.
Bruno Chikly's book is an incredible resource for patients, their caregivers and health professionals. The extent of the information you make available to therapists and physicians is a gift we can all utilize in our practice and work.

Having taught Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) since the early 1980's, I feel as though I have recently discovered a huge key to unlocking the mysterious patterns of pain and dysfunction in soft tissues. After taking Bruno Chikly's basic lymphatic drainage course, my eyes were opened to a significant factor in the problems of chronic pain. Integrating the NMT techniques and lymph drainage therapy will produce significant changes for even the most chronic pain conditions and the mastery of these techniques will enhance the practitioner's results significantly. This text has been long needed and will impact all fields of manual techniques.

The completely new enhancement of Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is the palpation of the lymph flow in the different layers of the tissues, including its rhythm, quality and direction. His work has opened the possibility for practitioners to map the lymphatic flow, greatly enhancing effectiveness of the work. A.T. Still, the father of osteopathy, stated several times, that the importance of the lymphatics cannot be overestimated.

In Lymph Drainage Therapy, Dr. Chikly has brought the healing arts a powerful approach to the treatment of both chronic and acute conditions. It enhances the clinical acumen of those interested in an osteopathic approach to the management of systemic as well as musculoskeletal problems. His courses are a celebration of the integration of basic lymphology and manual medicine.
