Welcome to your online learning portal for Coaching The Body. Developed by Thai Bodywork Founder Chuck Duff in 2005, CTB integrates in-depth knowledge of Travell & Simons trigger point therapy with the most effective manual therapy techniques from traditional Thai massage, osteopathy, and Asian medicine. Chuck is known as one of the top bodywork educators in the world, has produced 5 DVDs and taught thousands of students from many parts of the world.
The CTB Academy brings Chuck's groundbreaking work to a wider audience than ever before. We shoot both studio and live class footage of our workshops and combine them with Chuck's educational slides, articles, downloads and quizzes. Students love the ability to stream Chuck's detailed teaching 24/7 from virtually any device.
