Coaching The Body™

Online Library

We have extensive options for remote study here at the Coaching The Body™ Online Library. Our online learning center offers over 50 courses on topics ranging from hands free Thai techniques to full frozen shoulder treatments.

Learn Coaching The Body™ Techniques at Home

We offer a large and growing selection of online courses, from smaller classes on a particular topic to full versions of our CTB™ body area and protocol courses. Many of our courses have both online and in-person components. We’ve found this to be an ideal solution to training, as students are able to prepare for class by studying their online material.

Thai Bodywork and Coaching The Body™ is a sophisticated movement art that requires in-person training, just as would be the case with yoga, martial arts or other disciplines. That being said, online study can provide a huge advantage for learning theory and training retention.

  • Clinical Core for Upper Body 1 - SF BAY AREA - November, 2019

    $325.00 $650.00

    IF YOU PAY YOUR DEPOSIT UP FRONT, PLEASE PAY YOUR BALANCE BEFORE COMING TO CLASS.

    This course covers the analysis, assessments and treatment for addressing the most common upper body complaints seen in clinical practice.

    Coaching the Body™ provides a unique and powerful framework for understanding and addressing  the true origins of pain. Over the last 15 years, CTBI founder Chuck Duff has integrated an updated understanding of trigger point therapy (Trigger Point 2.0) with techniques from Thai and other bodywork styles and current neuroscience into this revolutionary approach to pain.

    You will learn to address the most common types of shoulder, upper back and neck pain by understanding the role of proper scapular positioning, the various muscular sources that can feed the upper body with satellite referral, key functional relationships, perpetuating factors for upper body pain, and key treatment modules for the most important muscles in this area.

    There is a relatively small set of muscles and relationships that set up a high percentage of upper body complaints. This course prepares you to design and execute effective treatments for most of the upper body cases that you will see in practice.

    This course is valuable for massage therapists, yoga teachers, physical therapists, trainers and anyone looking for deep insight about the true origins of upper body pain. The concepts are continued and refined in our Clinical Core for Upper Body 2 course.

    $325.00

    Work from a place of meditative ease using leverage and body weight, a practice that cultivates maximum sensitivity to your client's body cues and avoids injury from overuse of forearm, shoulder and hand muscles. Variations using feet, legs and knees allow you as therapist to provide broad, deep pressure without endangering yourself. This is an excellent way for the practitioner to safely work with athletes and other clients who require deeper pressure without putting stress on themselves.

    As in all of our courses, we maintain a strong therapeutic focus in our teaching, guiding the student in how to work with specific issues of pain or dysfunction. We employ the principles of Coaching The Body to understand common patterns of pain and its origins while using HandsFree techniques.
