Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science

The vast majority of pain cases are due to trigger points in muscles, yet very few practitioners understand how to effectively help people using these principles. We have amazing success in the treatment of pain and we know how to train great therapists.

Learn Bodywork That Works

Our Coaching the Body approach combines efficient techniques from traditional bodywork and osteopathy with a state of the art understanding of trigger point therapy. Learn to understand and treat pain with incredible effectiveness at its true origins.

Featured eCourse

Subscapularis and Infraspinatus are the key internal and external rotators of the shoulder. They have a unique relationship, in that the referral pattern of the subscap flows over its antagonist, the infra. This pair is a key for treating many types of shoulder pain. In this focus course, we go into depth on the best techniques and protocol for treating these muscles. Transform your ability to achieve change in shoulder conditions for less than the cost of a single bodywork session.

Upcoming Classes

Our workshops may be taken individually or as part of a certification program. Some of our workshops are appropriate for new students and have no prerequisites, including Level 1 and Functional Anatomy. All students who wish to complete our program must take our foundational Level 1 training, whether or not they have other bodywork training, as our approach is quite different from other schools.
