Your lecture and workshop were splendid…For the first time the brain component of the Primary Respiratory Mechanism was addressed as palpable structures…I was convinced that I actually felt the lateral ventricles change their orientation in your workshop.
I was amazed how quickly you located the infarction in my right temporal lobe without even knowing my stroke history.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us.
KEEP DIGGING ON,

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.

Quotes from Mel Friedmann, DO, 2010-2012 President of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy (USA):
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 Friedman, DO, Director of the Cranial Academy, USA
Quotes from Mark Rosen, DO, 2007-2009 President of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy (USA):
"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,"
- Mark Rosen, DO
I was speechless! I almost fell off the chair when I touched Pat’s head! I think I need to take up to Brain 14 to understand what you (Bruno Chikly) did with her. I think you stole someone else’s brain and put it in her.
Pat’s brain was supple, there was a ton of fluid in it, all the cells are moving, ALIVE, and there was no conflict in it. Part of the left brain had a lot of "conflict" before. When I sink my fingers into the cortex, there was a give. During the first session after yours, even mere intent was moving the brain. I AM NOT EXAGGERATING!
I told my staff that I am giving up my practice, family and everything and apprentice with Bruno to learn to be able to treat like that, or I will have to live up to 120 years!!

Thank you for the great brain course at AZCOM in January. To say it has changed my practice would be an understatement. My results are much different, and the efficacy of all my other methods is greater. I very much appreciate your contribution to my ongoing education.
We (globally, as osteopaths) are very thankful for your contribution to the body of knowledge we employ in caring for hurting people everyday. Personally, I feel as if my ability to help people has been enhanced by a quantum step/level, a "quantum leap", if you will.

This is the newest and most innovative course to access the mind, body and spirit of the brain. I highly recommend it to advance practitioner because it gives you direct and specific applications to treat the brain.

B1 was one of the best courses I assisted in my last 17 years. Dr. Chikly covered thoroughly both the structural and the functional anatomy of the brain. It was a solid, precise and fascinating information. I consider this class indispensable to practitioners of any advanced modality. It should be a pre-requirement to high level therapists training. I’m using the many tools learned in B1 in almost all my patients, and being delighted with the results. The functional modifications of the brain are happening at deeper level and faster pace. The techniques learned in B1 classes became true blessings to my little handicapped patients.
- Shanna Ringel, DOM, CST-D
This course is so important to me that I repeated it in December ’06.
The content is key to healing and Dr. Chikly is key in explaining and demonstrating it.
Dr. Chikly has a special way of communicating the curriculum which is precise and professional while at the same time humorous and personal.
Alaya Chikly is a special and essential addition to the class, providing guided meditations and other less traditional exercises which varied the presentation and opened the minds of the students to new and more expansive ways of perceiving this unique and useful material.
There is no question in my mind that this work is an important part of what I do daily with the people who come to see me for help with a wide variety of health issues. There is no way I would ever give up what I have learned from Dr. Chikly, nor could I envision my practice without it. I am deeply indebted to the Chikly’s for their skill as pedagogs and their care and precision as research scientists. I plan to continue with B2 and future courses which the Chikly’s develop

This is an extraordinary class. Dr Chikly has developed a profound method of releasing trauma from tissue anywhere in the body (including brain trauma). The technique is subtle, gentle and very harmonizing for the client.
- Robert H. Weiner
This is the best class I ever take in 20 years taking all sorts of hands-on seminars.
- Robin Walpert
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.
