Give yourself and your clients lasting relief from pain.
Foot hyperpronation is a very common perpetuator of pain, all sorts of pain, in the lower body and upper body. When the foot and ankle lack stability, there are repercussions throughout the entire kinetic chain.
Foot hyperpronation is recognized as problematic by the medical community, but its role in pain conditions is generally undervalued, poorly understood and inadequately corrected.
I searched for years to find a corrective product that worked...I finally gave up the search and created my own products that work perfectly with the CTB system of analysis and correction.
Foot Hyperpronation: A very common perpetuator of pain.
I discovered that trigger point therapy had great promise, but it had never been implemented or taught in a way that set up practitioners for success. It’s almost useless to treat individual muscles, in a static way without movement. My own therapeutic success came when I began to understand the relationships between muscles that set up common pain patterns.
Nobody taught me this, because it just didn’t exist. I was lucky enough to come across various threads that when put together, produce incredible results. I started having success in the vast majority of my treatments, even with severe pain conditions that had been failed by multiple, highly regarded practitioners.
I called my approach Coaching The Body (CTB). I taught my first course in this approach in 2005. It’s far easier to be a great therapist than it is to teach others how to do it. I’ve spent the last 15 years figuring out how to reliably teach others to be great at this work.
So - you’re lucky. Right place, right time. You don’t have to spend the years that I did uncovering these truths. I can show you my secrets in a reasonably priced, very achievable certification program - and you will become a Pain Hacker who your clients respect and adore.
My program takes the techniques of Thai massage and other styles (which by themselves are just empty tricks) and uses them in service of a modern understanding that I call Trigger Point 2.0. We use movement, vibration, and neurological distraction to bypass the body’s constant self-protective instincts which use muscle engagement to protect joints and lock down motion.
The best tools and techniques are useless without the right analysis. That’s what you will learn here, and our experience over thousands of students and clients has proven that these ideas work.
Our program is a sophisticated combination of in-person and online learning. We give you access to hundreds of hours of video supporting all of your coursework. It’s yours to keep.
That way, you have a huge reference library that covers the theory, anatomy and protocols at your constant disposal, and we can focus our valuable time together in person on training your movements, touch, interaction and thought process.
We think of it as an apprenticeship. When I demonstrate things in class, they aren’t fake or made up. We pick students for demonstrations that actually have the issues we’re covering, and address them real time - so you can witness it, see it and feel it.
Because our program is totally unique and not available anywhere else, we get many students from out of the Chicago area. Our unique combination of online and in-person learning makes it affordable to certify from a distance, and we offer affordable studio stays for visitors that greatly reduce travel expense.
Trigger Point Therapy 2.0
Trigger points are like little clenched fists that live within your muscle tissue. Trigger points are often the result of the central nervous system attempting to protect a certain area of the body (by “locking it down.”)
We call this phenomenon protective engagement.
These small, local contractions can pull on their surrounding tissues and tendons, creating a domino effect of referral patterns.
For that reason, the origin of your pain might be in a different location from where you FEEL the pain.
We start with a series of specified assessments to analyze how your body came into its current pattern, then apply a series of clinically tested protocols designed to coax the central nervous system out of its protective engagement.
After your session, your practitioner will work with you to help eliminate lifestyle factors that caused your pain in the first place (so it doesn’t come back).
Our goal is to teach you where your pain came from, educate you in self-care strategies, and free you from reliance upon experts.
We generally aim to provide significant improvement in your first session or two, even in serious pain conditions.
