Course Content

  • This course covers the principles of Clinical Thai Bodywork, a modality developed by Chuck Duff that blends the techniques of Thai yoga massage with the insights of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy, acupoint work and a structural analysis of body function. CTB is highly effective in reducing or eliminating patterns of pain and restriction, often in cases that have failed conventional medical treatment. CTB gives the student specific tools to assess and design effective treatments for the most common client complaints and can be integrated into a mat, chair or table-based practice.
  • Clinical Thai Bodywork was designed to bridge the gulf between traditional Thai approaches and modern western clinical environments. The framework of CTB constitutes one of the most efficient and effective approaches available for orthopedic rehab, relief of chronic and acute pain, recovery from injury, and correction of myofascially derived dysfunction.
  • This course is suitable for practitioners wanting effective tools for treating specific conditions of pain and dysfunction in their practice. We will establish the foundations of Clinical Thai Bodywork for application on either the mat or the table. Topics include trigger point therapy and relationship to Thai techniques, common pain syndromes, common medical mis-diagnoses, using point stimulation, understanding pain referral pathways, and their relationship to sen lines, TCM meridians and fascial connections, yoga therapy and much more.
