Thai Bodywork was founded by Chuck Duff in 2001 in Evanston, IL, when Chuck began offering Thai massage workshops in addition to his private practice. The school has grown steadily since that time, and now offers more than 30 workshops per year. Chuck’s focus on the therapeutic benefits of Thai massage led him to develop Coaching The Body as a modality and he taught the first CTB course in 2005.

Thai Bodywork is now the only school anywhere that offers not only a full repertoire of Thai bodywork techniques, but an in-depth understanding of the muscular effects of each technique integrated with professional training in trigger point therapy. Our students learn to treat specific pain complaints with a high rate of success using CTB. We offer two levels of professional certification in coursework approved by NCBTMB for continuing education in massage. Some of our courses are also approved for continuing ed in physical therapy.

Our courses are primarily offered in intensive workshop format, and students may design their own path and schedule through the program. Anyone is welcome to attend our Level 1 training, with or without prior bodywork experience.

Our school attracts students from many demographics, including yoga teachers who wish to gain an understanding of hands-on work, physical therapists looking for a more efficient way to deal with pain and dysfunction, massage therapists interested in an approach that involves reliable clinical benefit, movement and is kind to their bodies, individuals wanting to transition to a new career in the healing arts, personal trainers wishing to provide benefit to their clients with pain, and many more.
