Join my private training group and I'll show you my secrets for resolving pain at the source.

Each week, I will teach you in a specific part of the body how to eliminate pain without surgery or drugs using techniques I've developed over the last two decades in my clinical practice.

Join my online apprenticeship program and you'll learn:

⇒ How to resolve pain at the source instead of being mislead by the "illusion of injury" like everyone else -- by treating the taut fibers and trigger points that are ACTUALLY causing the pain.

⇒ Normalize "rounded shoulder posture" incredibly fast by clearing the dysfunction in muscles that's keeping them at abnormal resting length.

Restore strength in minutes. Muscles with extensive trigger points test weak because the already-contracted sarcomeres cannot respond properly to motor signals. Strength returns quickly when the trigger points are resolved using our lightning-fast techniques combining percussion and movement.

⇒ Use the latest technology as a way to put your treatments into hyper-drive. Learn each week how to treat muscles using our amazing Muscle Liberator™ tool by combining percussion, distraction and corrective patterns of movement. Clear muscles in seconds using the EPS.

An Amazing Percussion Tool That We Designed Specifically for Trigger Point Work and Coaching the Body™!

Speed up the therapy process exponentially and save your own body with my new Muscle Liberator™.

There is no better way to quickly and efficiently release taut fibers so you can get to the root of the issue causing pain. We have shown examples of getting incredible results using this tool in many of our videos – and during this time-limited offer, you will get this tool for FREE with your yearly prepaid membership.

The cost of the yearly membership including the Liberator is less than the cost of many professional tools being sold on the market, and they don't touch the Muscle Liberator™ for this work.

*This type of tool has recently been reported by the Wall Street Journal as being extremely effective when used correctly. The key is our in-depth Coaching the Body training - without that, the tool is just another feel good approach. Our tool has been specifically designed for trigger point work and has significant benefits for both client and practitioner.

This "apprenticeship" program has a value of over $5,000!

This is the first time I'm opening up my content library of hundreds of video training hours in a single purchase – so please make sure you take advantage while this offer is in effect. If you want to solve pain with the fastest and most efficient techniques available anywhere, and without the use of DRUGS or SURGERY, this program is for you.

"Coaching the Body" will change how you perceive the origins and treatment of pain - and solve a MAJOR issue that has effected nearly 80% of people living in America.

I've trained in multiple movement systems and martial arts... this has been some of the best teaching I've ever encountered.

I picked up the ML yesterday. Awesome little tool. We used it yesterday around my shoulder. Then I had a senior men's baseball game experiencing ROM and pain-free movement I hadn't had in a long while. I was throwing (I'm a pitcher) like a 40 year old!

Choose your package below to get started.

As a member you'll be guided as a student through my unique approach and receive information that isn't available anywhere else.

I was frustrated at the total ineffectiveness of conventional ideas about pain... So frustrated that I was willing to throw out all the assumptions and start again from the ground up. I developed my own totally unique blending of ideas from trigger point therapy, osteopathy, martial arts, yoga and bodywork.

There's a lot to cover here, and we take the time to go through every single facet to make sure that you fully understand, why the pain is occurring and exactly how to prevent it from coming back.

Content will be dripped out weekly with courses and quizzes, to ensure focused and effective, verifiable learning.

By spreading out the content throughout the year, we're able to carefully sequence and focus the material. This is much more effective than just diving in and getting overwhelmed. You'll be learning concepts in the correct order, one muscle at a time.

Each week, you'll be learning from master teachers who are using these techniques on a daily basis.

It's easy to throw around ideas. We're constantly putting our ideas to the test with real clients struggling with severe pain. You'll be able to see for yourself how effective this work is in the real world because we record our sessions and make them available to you. There is no better proof than that.

The Muscle Liberator™ in combination with this unique training is a secret weapon that will supercharge your ability to treat pain.

We already understood how to treat pain before we invented the Muscle Liberator™. That tool is now revolutionizing our work and accelerating the process by 5 to 10x. The tool alone isn't enough - it's the training you will receive in how to use it that is priceless and will transform how quickly you're able to address pain.

You will see the proof in the members-only videos we provide showing the Muscle Liberator in action in each body area.​ It's been hard to mask our excitement -- the results we get in these videos are even surprising to us.


The most comprehensive program I've EVER created.

  • Sequenced material each week that focuses your attention on a specific topic: eg. treating the subscapularis and infraspinatus. Over time, we will progress through all of the major pain topics.
  • Supportive material from anatomy, CTB lectures, treatment demos, sessions, downloads.
  • Gain access to the new "Muscle Liberator™" - NOT available to the general public.
  • Invitations to members-only live trainings.
  • Discounts for in-person study.

This is something we’ve never done before...

A weekly release of online content, organized by the most important pain complaints that are seen in practice. Each week you will receive a “chef’s choice” of content related to the topic.

Things are taught here that I would never get inroduced to anywhere in the world!

Will Baird

Clinical Apprentice Professional Physical Therapist

The content in the CTB Membership has been very helpful! The weekly lessons are usually just the right amount of information. It really depends on my schedule. If I'm busy, it's harder to get in but knowing I can pick back up as soon as my schedule allows is wonderful!

The Muscle Liberator is a great tool! It's not for every client but most like it. (After we have the "You're using a power tool on me???" conversation.) Once they experience it and realize how quickly it helps, they are put at ease.

CTB Student, Therapist and Yoga Instructor


If "Coaching the Body" isn't working for you, or if you aren't happy with the content or product, I will refund you 100% of your payment. I am so confident that my techniques work, that this is an easy guarantee to make.

We've tested these methods out with many clients and students, and they're constantly blown away at the results we're able to provide.

This is a revolutionary way to completely eliminate pain from the body.

And I'm giving the first month FREE, so you can start learning right away.

I am a small person and the Muscle Liberator is what made me feel as if I really have a future healing pain. Before this tool, I just wasn't certain my body would be able to handle larger people over the long run.

Treya Jaholkowska

CTB Student and Therapist

It's saved my hands. Even though I use my elbows, feet and knees a lot, there's still a lot I was doing with my hands and thumb. Now I don't have to . . . and people LOVE it!

What is the Muscle Liberator?

The Muscle Liberator is a percussion tool that administers distractive percussion at a rate of up to 2800 percussions/minute or 46 per second.

Does the Muscle Liberator rotate/oscillate?

No, the Muscle Liberator is a strictly up/down motion like a jigsaw.Enter your text here...

What size and material do the Muscle Liberator heads come in?

We have three sizes of heads. Our standard “small” head (15/16in/2.3cm) is a semi-soft silicone. The “tiny” head (0.5in/1.2cm) is a sturdy soft rubber and the “medium” head (1.25in/3.3cm) is a dense rubber like a bouncy ball.

What are the contraindications of Muscle Liberator use?

Guidelines can be found in the Muscle Liberator User’s Guide once purchased.

Can you change the rate of speed of the Muscle Liberator?

Yes, the speed is adjusted from 0-2800 RPM based on grip of the trigger.

How long does it take to receive a Muscle Liberator?

When we have Muscle Liberators in stock we are able to get them to you within 2-3 business days. When we have back-orders, the shipment can take up to 10 days.

What do we get with the CTB Membership?

The membership is a guided series of lessons, one per week, on how to treat the significant pain symptoms of the body. Think of it as an ongoing course that guides you step by step through our amazing Coaching the Body approach, with muscles and topics covered in the most logical order - starting with shoulder pain, the most common complaint that we see. You will get slides, videos, downloadable materials and more! Much of this material is only available via the membership. JOIN US!

Do the lessons provide Continuing Education credits for massage?

We are an NCBTMB-approved CE provider. We're in a process of applying for CE credit for the weekly lessons, and this will be available retroactively if you are currently a member.

What is the benefit of purchasing the CTB Membership over just the Muscle Liberator?

While we love the Muscle Liberator and all it can do, it wouldn’t be the tool we know it to be without the knowledge and understanding we have of not only Trigger Point Therapy and pain referral in the body, but also the use of reintegrative movement, post-isometric relaxation (PIR) and breathing techniques, and our extensive body area protocols. In other words, we cannot guarantee success with the Muscle Liberator without the Membership. Using a tool like this to simply "iron muscles" loses 90% of the benefit.

Do we have 24/7 access to the videos forever?

Yes! Once you become a member, the videos you receive access to each week will always be yours to watch.

How many videos do we receive with the CTB Membership?

Each week you will receive 1-2 hours of video content along with downloadable materials including slides and other references. Some of this content may exist in some form within other courses in our online library, some of it is unique to the membership.

If I'm already a CTBI student, does this program still make sense for me?

Absolutely! Consider this program an easily accessible, topically oriented tour through the body, starting with the most common pain complaints you are likely to see. The membership will always include our most up to date and current techniques. Much of the material will ONLY be available through the membership, such as the Muscle Liberator-focused material. Existing students in our certification programs are eligible for discounts on the membership, please contact for details.

Does one need to know Thai Massage or Trigger Point Therapy for this program to be useful/applicable?

With the CTB Membership, we will show and teach you what you need to know about body mechanics/techniques and Trigger Point Therapy to get significant benefit for your clients and your own body. While our program uses techniques from Thai bodywork, these are taught as needed, and you will not need a prior background in any type of bodywork to benefit. Most techniques are easily adaptable to the table. 

What if I already own a number of courses in the CTB Academy Online Library? Will this be redundant?

A portion of the material will be entirely unique to the membership. While some material from the online library may be reused in the membership content, the sequencing, presentation and curation alone are worth the cost.  We present the material in an order that makes sense within the larger topics that we'll be covering, one muscle or grouping at a time. In addition, we have ongoing opportunities for members to interact with teachers, including a private Facebook group and regular live webinar events.

Do you need to be a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) to use the Muscle Liberator or associated Membership material?

This is a comprehensive training in which we cover the use of both bodywork techniques and the Muscle Liberator in each area of the body, including working muscles short, long and finding trigger point areas. The material is presented without expectation of prerequisites, and we build from the ground up, so anyone can absorb it.
