24-25-26/10/2019 BRAIN I DR BRUNO CHIKLY MD, DO, LMT


He is a graduate of the Medical School at Saint Antoine Hospital in France, where his internship in general medicine included training in endocrinology, surgery, neurology and psychiatry. Dr. Chikly also earned the United States equivalent of a master’s degree in psychology from Paris XIII University, France.

Dr Chikly received a Doctorate in Osteopathy (hon.) from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO), Maidstone (Renzo Molinari), UK (2002); a Doctorate in Osteopathy from CROMON/AIROP (2009). He is registered in the French National Registry of Osteopathy.
Dr Chikly extensively studied osteopathic techniques and other hands-on modalities, both in Europe and the United States, including Manual Lymphatic Therapies, Osteopathy in the Cranial field, CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Mechanical Link, Muscle Energy, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy.

The Brain Therapy Curriculum is an advanced-level course that takes us to the next realm of manual therapy. It explores the brain, spinal cord, white matter, grey matter, and also in this level brain nuclei such as corpus callosum, septum pellucidum, indusium griseum, fornix, thalamus, globus pallidus, amygdala, hippocampus, brainstem, cerebellum, etc. The body often aligns itself around these precise structures, and they are frequently unaddressed key/dominant tissue restrictions.The techniques presented in this class can probably help most of your patients, but it can specifically help pathologies such as closed-head injuries, whiplash, headaches, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, cognitive behavioral dysfunctions, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Students will learn specific techniques to release brain-centered restrictions as well as the damaging effects that these restrictions cause.The brain therapy is an advanced class that use a slightly different paradigm by working extensively with the brain parenchyma, grey and white matter, cranial and spinal structures, rather than mainly concentrating on the cranial bones and membranes.
This work requires perceptual skills to be able to address tissue microstructures, and we will have specific exercises in the class to help build up these skills. Many topics will be covered in the Brain Therapy class, in general, including:

  1. Cranial bones (intraosseous and interosseous lesions) Claustrum
  2. Cranial membranes in all anatomical directions
  3. Fluid: 3 distinct compartments
    a. Subarachnoid spaces and cerebral cisterns
    b. Brain parenchyma and the glymphatic system
    c. Ventricles
  4. Grey Matter: 3 and 6 layered cortex and brain nuclei
  5. White Matter: 3 types of organization
  6. Electro-magnetic field (EMF) of the brain
  7. Emotions, as well as mental or spiritual dimensions.
