Class Code
LCFS-FM

Dr Chikly put together quite an exceptional method for fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS - called ME in UK), that is revolutionizing the diagnostic and treatment of these conditions.

LDT Applications to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,  Fibromyalgia, MS & Chronic Neuroinflammations (LCFS-FM)

CFS and FM have in common reduced midbrain and cortical blood flow, autonomic dysfunction and abnormal lymphatic flow.

There is a need for non-invasive and effective treatment for the growing population of people suffering from these conditions.

These disorders have to be treated with a specific protocol in order not to precipitate an aggravation of the condition

 

Dr Perrin approach was voted “the best manual technique for ME” by the members of the UK ME Association (2010) and “A cost effective way to diagnose ME” by the British Parliamentary Inquiry (2006).

 

ASSESSMENT: The assessment will be done over 6 specific key lesions (3 in the front of the body, 3 in the back) + "limbic" structures in the brain for the possible emotional causes of CFS/FM, a protocol developed by Dr Chikly. We will present one of the specific points of Dr Perrin for these conditions. Dr Perrin's points have been the subject of a preclinical study and are now under scientific investigation by the National Health Service (an equivalent of the US NIH) at Lancashire University, UK.

 

TREATMENT: The treatment will be principally a blend of Dr Chikly’s lymph and brain techniques. The lymph techniques will include superficial and deeper lymph, mapping and rerouting, and some specific viscera work using a lympho-fascia release approach (fluid dynamics) to viscera such as the heart, stomach, pancreas, liver, etc. The brain techniques will include brainstem, pons, mesencephalon, etc. Specific sacrum intra- or inter-osseous techniques will be also presented.

Once mastered, this is a 20 to 30-minute hands-on treatment for chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. It may be repeated 2-3 times to typically reduce the majority of symptoms.

MS with important fatigue can present the same specific points during the manual assessment and can typically respond to the same treatment protocol.

Many cases of infectious mononucleosis (mono) also respond very well to this treatment.

 

Class length: 3 days

Chikly Health Institute

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.

I am 47 and I have fibromyalgia for about 17 years. I was just always tired! At home I did nothing extra, I felt that I could never get enough sleep, at work the most simple things seemed to take an effort, and I felt it hard to concentrate. Sometimes it was even hard to pick up the phone and call friends!! I can hardly put in words how I feel after ONE session with Dr Bruno Chikly. I found myself flirting again with my husband, found the strength to take the dog out for a whole 90 minute walk, and two days after the session I met an old and dear friend that I had not seen for way to long, and we were laughing and joking and suddenly I realized that I was not faking it - I had just found my happiness again! Thank you,

I have Multiple Sclerosis. My current flair-up has caused vision and vertigo issues that have made every-day tasks difficult (& driving unthinkable). I was treated with IV steroids last month and have been slowly improving. After my first visit with Dr. Bruno Chikly I felt “awake”. The next morning for a few hours I forgot I had Multiple Sclerosis. It wasn’t until the phone rang and I ran to answer that I realized I hadn’t done that for a while…simply hurrying up to answer the phone was not possible the day before. My friends and family have commented they are impressed with how much I have improved in one day. I even feel comfortable driving again. I still have more healing but I am amazed at the progress I made with one treatment from Dr. Bruno Chikly. I am much happier and optimistic I will make a full recovery.
