Instructor subject to change
Early Registration Discount: $650 (= $200 off) if registered and $200 deposit paid at a previous CHI class (e.g. LDT1) or $650 with a CHI-Pak
Early discount is only valid when balance is paid in full 45 prior to beginning of class.
Student Discount: $395 in full time hands-on program (no additional discounts)
Full-Time students currently enrolled in a hands-on program that will culminate in a license/certification in bodywork are eligible to receive a special discount on entry-level courses.
To qualify, you must register with a $175 deposit before you graduate. The balance is due 30 days before your course begins. We also must receive proof of your enrollment in a full-time program.
Please have your school send to us a letter stating that you are enrolled, the total number of hours of the program you are attending and your expected graduation date.
The letter must be on the school’s letterhead and can be mailed to the Chikly Health Institute.
Registration: 8:30 a.m. First day
Class: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Last Day: 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Times are subject to change.
Bring comfortable, loose fitting clothes. Some of these approaches require to touch an exposed skin, we encourage you to bring a bath towel, lab clothes, and appropriate undergarments so that you are comfortable.
Short finger nails are required for some techniques.
Due to potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class.
You are welcome to bring a treatment table.
If you are unable to bring a treatment table, you can bring a yoga mat for use on the banquet table.
Requisite Preparation for the Class - Pre-Study
The DVD "Dissection of the Brain" and Spinal Cord is a great preparation for the Brain 2 class.
Be sure you understand the following words and, as applicable, know precisely where these structures are located in the body.
For this class it is more important to know their 3-dimensional location and relationship with one another, than their classically described physiology.
Reticular alarm system: median (raphe nuclei), medial and lateral columns, locus coeruleus, sulcus limitans, rhomboid fossa.
- Frontal and occipital forceps of corpus callosum
- Internal capsule
- Anterior commissure, medial and lateral olfactory striae, posterior commissure
- Commissure of fornix (psalterium or lyre of David)
- Mamillothalamic tract
- Posterior limb of internal capsule, pyramidal decussation, corticospinal tracts
- Dentate gyrus, gyrus fasciolaris
- All nuclei of thalamus, including midline, medial dorsal (MD), all lateral and all ventral, intralaminar nuclei (centromedian, central lateral, parafascicular), etc.
- Nucleus accumbens, septal nuclei, nucleus basalis (of Meynert), ventral tegmental area (VTA), stria terminalis, stria medullaris
- Habenular nuclei
- Vermis, superior, middle and inferior cerebellar peduncles
- Vestibular nuclei
- Periaqueductal gray matter (PAG)
- Dura, arachnoid, pia, in the brain and spine
- Spinal cord, foramen magnum, C1, C2, cervical and lumbar enlargements, dorsal and ventral roots, dorsal root (spinal) ganglion, conus medullaris, cauda equina, filum terminale
It will be helpful to read the article "CSF and Lymph: Is Human CSF Reabsorbed by Lymph?" from "Silent Waves, Theory & Practice of Lymph Drainage Therapy", Part 5, Chapter 8.
