Study Online at the CTB Academy

Study Chuck Duff’s incredibly effective Coaching The Body approach for treating pain with our constantly expanding library of online courses.

The CTB Academy brings Chuck’s groundbreaking work in understanding and treating the true origins of pain 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 our detailed teaching 24/7 from virtually any device.

Once you purchase, you always have access to the material on your own schedule. Several of our online courses provide credit toward our in-person certification programs.

“A note of appreciation! Thank you, Chuck Duff, for sharing your knowledge, skills and experience through your online courses! There is nothing else “out there” like these! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching several of them, most recently the frozen shoulder online course. For those of us that desire continued education with you but rarely have the freedom to travel, this is a highly valuable resource.

While I prefer to study in person at your school, this satiates my appetite for additional tools/skills to address my clients’ pain patterns as I evolve as a new practitioner of Thai Bodywork. Looking forward to seeing more of these!”

Treating Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is one of the most common issues in today’s world of mobile devices. Most shoulder pain is not caused by injury, but rather by muscular compensation. Learn to treat shoulder pain quickly and effectively using our unique Coaching the Body approach.

Treating Hip Pain and Sciatica

Hip and gluteal pain and “sciatica” is one of the least understood and most common conditions out there. Many people suffer with this kind of pain their entire lives, attempting to “roll their IT bands” and other misguided approaches to the problem. It just doesn’t work, because while the pain is experience along the IT band, this fascial structure has nothing to do with it. Learn to actually treat these disturbing conditions with dramatic results, and in a single session with our online courses.

Online Coaching the Body Trainings

Explore our online library of professional Coaching the Body Trainings. In each of seven body areas, we provide an in-depth body area class that explores the theory and treatment of 20-30 muscles that contribute pain in that area. We also offer a Protocol class that explores how to design treatments covering all of the muscles in the body area. CTB Fundamentals covers the relevant trigger point theory and treatment principles for all body areas.

Online TBP Courses

Our online classes from our Certified Thai Bodywork Practitioner (TBP) program enhance and expand upon the material taught in our in-person classes at the school. These make great followup trainings after completing an in-person class, or can be used in advance to prepare for your in-person study. Functional anatomy is a keystone that will inform your bodywork, yoga or movement practice.
