I want to personally thank you for your directorship of the recent Brain, Parenchyma, Nuclei and Fluid Course. This is great material…and a fantastic course. The application of osteopathic principles to the functional anatomy of the brain provides an incredibly important contribution to our profession. I personally learned a tremendous amount. The complexity and relevance of this course will challenge me to continually apply this material in my daily practice. Your contribution to The cranial Academy curriculum is greatly appreciated. We look forward to continued collaboration. We are grateful for your insights and abilities. A Heartfelt thanks
I just wanted to write and tell you again that your class in Phoenix was outstanding, and I got even more this time than last year.
As the Academy is growing, mostly through its commitment to great course offerings, to me, you represent among the best educators we have. Your courses are outstanding, fun and informative, and provide a relevance as well as freshness most other courses do not.
I hope we can continue a mutually good and working relationship between the Academy and you in the future. We all have much to learn from you.
Mel Friedmann, DO, 2010-2012 President of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy (USA)
I just attended a CME program that I consider to be one of the top few educational experiences of my 30 years as an osteopathic physician. This program "Brain, Parenchyma, Nuclei and Fluid" taught by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO was offered by the Cranial Academy and your [AZCOM] OMM Department.

"I was in the class Dr Chikly just taught in Phoenix (Brain, Cranial Rhythm & Bone Marrow - BCRB) and I just have to say he is a genius! I can't even believe what I am finding and changing in patients. I can't even put it into words. It's just crazy!! So, thank you!"

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.

I’m truly grateful for Bruno's kind eye and heart. It is HIS gifts of understanding human depths and truths and HIS journeys into the complexities of life and HIS brilliance to then illuminate it and make it simple enough for anyone to understand. I’m eternally grateful for being his student, and my clients who have found help and resolution are eternally grateful as well.

Brain work / FAR / NERL: I used all these techniques on my friend post stroke. He tripped on his cat and hit the right side of his neck on the sink in his bathroom. Collapsed an artery on the right side. I went up to visit him Memorial Day weekend. His right pupil (eye) was 2x the size of the left, he had foot drop on the left side and could not lift his arms above his head. I didn't want to do too much. Post treatment - He had no foot drop, pupils were the same size, better ROM in shoulders/arms, coloring was back to pink and healthy looking. He was actually skipping up and down the stairs afterword.
He is only 55, I think that had something to do with it as well. This was not temporary. He is still doing a lot better! Thank you for etching us to help others.

I was a student of yours last June attending the B1 class and wanted to give you feedback.
When I came back to my office, I integrated the B1 material into my regular massage routine—just a couple of minutes of brain work, which usually was some CST work.
I didn't mention to my clients what I was doing. Nearly all my clients recognized a difference in what I was doing. They experienced more profound relaxation, visuals, and emotions coming up. So in short everybody loves it.
I also am treating a client who has had daily migraines since a head and brain trauma in 2016. Since applying B1, she has now had phases of 2 weeks without migraines, dropping her strong medications.
Another client, she has been having migraines since age 8, stemming probably from birth trauma, had after her 1st visit, doing 20min brain work, a 1-week phase without any headaches.
This is all awesome. I plan to come back this June to repeat B1, this time paying more attention because this stuff works.

The class was great. Just to think that you could located, feel and then treat such specific parts of the brain was wonderful. Everyone who works with individuals who present with any type of brain damage should take this class. I have used it for all of the children that I work with and it has produced some fantastic changes in a short period of time. I highly recommend B1 for all practitioners.
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.
