Coaching The Body™

Restoring Pain-Free Movement


Eliminate pain at its source with a revolutionary approach to hacking the nervous system!

Coaching the Body is a state-of-the-art approach for understanding and treating pain.  CTB uniquely synthesizes bodywork, trigger point therapy and cutting-edge insights from neuroscience to eliminate pain at the source.  The CTB methodology can be applied in manual therapy, movement therapy and self-care settings with incredible results.  

CTB Training & Treatment Options

Hi - I'm Chuck Duff, Founder of Coaching The Body Institute.

Oddly enough, pain is a mystery to the medical profession. Our medical system is still in the middle ages in terms of understanding pain, which is why we have over 65,000 people a year dying of opiate overdose in the US.

Sadly, a high percentage of addicts begin with a prescribed opiate, and much of it is unnecessary. Pain is assumed by the medical establishment to always be a product of injury or disease, but this is just plain wrong.

I’m a trigger point therapist, and it has been demonstrated in repeated studies as well as my own 15 years of clinical experience that the vast majority of pain is from muscles that have developed trigger points.

I have great success in my work, and it is my mission to help pain sufferers directly and therapists looking for effective ways to help their clients.

That’s why, at CTB Institute, we have developed extensive training courses in our revolutionary pain treatment approach for: manual therapists, movement therapists, and self-care for individuals.  We offer online and in-person courses and certification programs.

CTB: Neuroscience & Trigger Point 2.0

Our system combines the insights of modern neuroscience with a new take on trigger point therapy, producing a cutting edge understanding of pain and treatment. 

We understand and work with the protective role of the CNS in recruiting trigger points to stabilize areas of perceived injury.

We understand origination patterns and treat pain and perpetuating factors at the source based on a deep understanding of functional anatomy, so dysfunction resolves quickly and doesn't return.
