Traditional wisdom informed

Thai bodywork and trigger point therapy, a perfect match. According to several studies and our own experience, the vast majority of pain cases are due to trigger points in muscles, yet very few practitioners are trained to be competent trigger point therapists. We have amazing success applying these principles, and we know how to train great therapists.
Three ways to study
Workshops and CE
We have online video
streaming and courses available for learning away from the classroom.
Take courses at your own pace. Our courses are approved for CE in massage by NCBTMB. No prerequisites for Level 1.
We offer two levels of certification: TBP (Thai Bodywork Practitioner) and CTBP (Clinical Thai Bodywork Practitioner).

Being a great therapist doesn't have to be hard on your body.
Our unique HandsFree style classes integrate principles from martial arts, bodywork and yoga. Massage therapists – save your hands, establish a sustainable practice for years to come. Our courses are approved by NCBTMB and the Illinois Physical Therapy Association for continuing education.
We offer a variety of financial assistance options, including discounted prepayment, time payment and work study.
You can design your own path through our workshops, taking one at a time or planning your entire certification. Remote study when you're away.
