At last someone that give to the lymphatic system its “nobility” / its sense/ significance / important scientific date….Lymph Drainage Therapy is a breakthrough in the filed of manual therapy (…)
I appreciate / admire both the man and the physician, the researcher and the writer.

Silent Waves is the bible in the field of lymph drainage therapy. Author Bruno Chikly, MD, is a skilled physician and true healer, and he is the Einstein of this rapidly developing field. This book is a treasure not only for healthcare professionals but also anyone who whishes to learn more about one of the most neglected systems of the human body.

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.

Bruno Chikly’s pioneering and innovative development of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is the most significant contribution to the field of Lymphatic Drainage since its inception almost a century ago.
LDT is a fundamental technique for all physical therapists to learn. It is here presented by one of the world’s leading teachers of manual therapy today. LDT is a powerful and effective technique for all physical therapists to learn.
