Dear participant of the class "Neuro-Embryological Release of Ligaments and Tendons (NER-L)“

We would like to make a few important clarifications to the further training :

1) Make sure you have any model to practice on for each technique.*

2) Remember if your partner is a manual therapist she/he will ethically need to pay for the class.

3) The training is all on-line. Please check your internet connection and download the "zoom application" in advance.

4) You will not be filmed during this webinar.

5) It is important not to film or take screenshots during this webinar. 


• NER-L is a profound, easy, and original way to release ligaments (and tendons). We will release and reset them using a mesoderm technique and fine-tune the release with endodermic and ectodermic techniques. The technique feels amazing to receive, and the effects are often felt during the day as a warm unfolding.

• Ligaments stabilize the whole bony structure. It is essential to work with them to align and strengthen the whole bony framework.

• We will go over most skeletal ligaments in the body. We will work, for example, with the iliolumbar ligament, sacrotuberous ligament, sacrospinous ligament, anterior and posterior coccygeal ligaments, three levels for the sacroiliac joint, anterior/posterior pubic symphysis, inguinal ligament, lacunar ligament. pectineal ligament the ligaments around the vertebrae such as the anterior and posterior longitudinal ligament, ligamentum flavum, interspinous ligament, supraspinous ligament, etc.

• Releasing the ligaments of the mandible, for example, may give you immediate effects with TMJ problems or clicking of the joint.

• Releasing the ligaments of the thyroid and cricoid cartilages often helps relieve vocal dysfunction.


We will go over numerous labs to address most of the ligaments of the body (and a few tendons):

Lab 1: Sacrotuberous, sacrospinous, sacroiliac ligaments, interosseous sacroiliac ligaments.

Lab 2: Iliolumbar and lumbosacral, anterior & posterior coccygeal ligaments.

Lab 3: Inguinal ligament (Poupart’s), lacunar ligament (Guimbernat’s), pubic ligaments.

Lab 4: Vertebral ligaments - anterior longitudinal ligament, posterior longitudinal ligament, ligamenta flava, interspinous ligament, supraspinous ligament, intertransverse ligament.

Lab 5: Upper cervical spine - lateral atlanto-occipital, transverse ligament of C1, alar, and apical ligaments.

Lab 6: Anterior thorax - interclavicular ligament, sternoclavicular ligaments, costoclavicular ligaments, chondrosternal (radiate) ligaments, interchondral membranes / ligaments.

Lab 7: Posterior ribs - anterior costovertebral (radiate) ligaments, costotransverse ligaments, intertransverse ligaments, lumbocostal ligaments (of Henle).

Lab 8: Shoulder - acromioclavicular, coracoclavicular (conoid-trapezoid), coracoacromial, coracohumeral, glenohumeral (capsular) ligaments.

Bruno Chikly, MD (France), DO (France, UK), LMT (AZ), is the director  of the Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) and Brain curriculi.

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.

His medical doctoral thesis, which addressed the lymphatic system, its historical evolution and the manual lymphatic drainage technique, was awarded a Medal of Medical Faculty of Paris VI, a prestigious acknowledgment for in-depth work and scientific presentation.

Dr Chikly received a Doctorate in Osteopathy (hon.) from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO), Maidstone (Renzo Molinari), UK (2002); a Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine from CROMON/AIROP (2009) and aDoctorate in Osteopathic Sciences from the European University of Brussels, Belgium (2010). He is registered in the French National Registry of Osteopathy (ADELI #75-00-1227-0).

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, Biodynamics program in Osteopathy, CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Mechanical Link, Muscle Energy, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release and others.

Dr. Chikly is a member of the International Society of Lymphology (ISL) and an associate member of the American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO), the Cranial Academy and a licensed massage therapist from Arizona, USA. He was Adjunct Professor of the Union Institute and University Graduate College (University of Ohio), he is listed in the millennium edition of Marquis' Who's Who in the World. Dr Chikly was the recipient of the 2014 Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.

In his definitive text, "Silent Waves: Theory and Practice of Lymph Drainage Therapy," 2nd Edition (450 pages), Dr. Chikly addresses the applications for lymphedema, chronic pain and inflammation. "Silent Waves" is carried by Stanford University Medical Library and is the first comprehensive book on the lymphatic system and lymphedema in North America.

Dr. Chikly, is an international seminar leader, lecturer and writer. He has spoken to most North American professional medical and health-related groups and to many lymphedema support groups. He lives in Arizona with is wife and teaching partner Alaya Chikly, LMT.
