Coaching The Body

Coaching the Body is a highly unique approach to therapeutic bodywork that utilizes techniques from traditional Thai massage as a means of efficiently treating trigger points in muscles and restoring normal motion across joints.  Nikelle began studying with Chuck Duff, the founder of  the CTB Institute in 2014 and completed certification in 2019. 

Clinical Thai Bodywork

Coaching The Body,™ formerly called Clinical Thai Bodywork, grew out of Chuck Duff's frustration with the absence of anatomical knowledge and clinical relevance in traditional Thai massage training. Early in his bodywork career, he attracted clients with serious pain issues, and found that his traditional training had not prepared him to help them. Thai massage training taught him many techniques but not their muscular effects or how to apply them in clinical cases.

The Missing Link:  Travell & Simons System Of Myofascial Trigger Points

Chuck met Claire Davies, author of the Trigger Point Workbook, in 2002 and realized that the Travell & Simons system of myofascial trigger points added a critical missing element for understanding and resolving pain conditions at their origins.

The CTB™ approach grew out of Chuck's exhaustive study of trigger point theory and going back and re-analyzing everything he had learned about the traditional poses -- a process that took many years.
