Sharing the Joy of Healing
I thought I would share the joy. I received this from one of my clients who comes to me regularly for "maintenance" care for her lymphedema:
As you and lymph drainage therapy (LDT) have been so instrumental in my recovery, I really have to share the outcome of my semi-annual radiation oncology follow-up. You would not believe how amazed my doctor was! He stated:
"You are a supreme example of what can happen when a patient assumes responsibility for her health care. What you have done is a true illustration of integrative medicine – a harmonious blend of conventional and complementary therapies."
I gratefully acknowledged the role of the Chikly method of therapy as the prime source of pain and lymphatic congestion relief (and all of the other combined life adjustments). My doctor was truly amazed that the symptoms had been so greatly reversed! (Not his words, mine! – He looked for swelling and couldn''''t seem to find much! –He remembered that I have an extensive case – arm, breast and torso). All he could say was WOW! Also, I do not have to go back to him for nine months (instead of six)…
Anyway, I am thankful for all that I have learned from you, and I thank you for sharing your knowledge in such a patient, humble, and kindly way.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

As a seasoned practitioner who is a course junkie, collecting techniques from wonderful mentors. My favorite techniques are from the Chikly's. I use them the most often and the people I treat think that I have great hands. The Chikly's cover both the academic problem solving and the heart. I couldn’t be happier taking all of their coursework. Thanks to both of them.

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.
