What is the CTB Membership?

The CTB Membership is a 2 year training program that, in total, covers the treatment of pain throughout the entire body. Most students begin with Year 1, which will be dripped out as online streaming videos every week (45mins-2hrs) for 52 weeks. There's no deadline for when you need to complete this material, as you will have access to it forever and can view it in your own time.

What material does Year 1 of the CTB™ Membership cover?

Year 1 of the CTB™ Membership covers all the areas of the body that are going to have an impact on 80% of all the pain that comes through your clinic doors or that you yourself experience. Due to the referral patterns and satellite referral patterns produced by trigger points, treating the shoulder joint and hip joint can relieve pain as far from the joint as the wrist and hand (shoulder), foot and ankle (hip), low back (hip) and head and neck (shoulder).

Using our protocols developed over decades, as well as our system for navigating perpetuating factors such as hyperpronation, leg length discrepancy, breathing dysfunction and workplace ergonomics, you will be guided through an entire system of pain treatment.

If you're not sure that the Muscle Liberator™ is something you want to bring into your clinic, have no fear. We teach all of our techniques both manually and with tools. We recommend you keep the tool if for no other reason than have a killer self-care routine at home.

All of our training is done with proper body mechanics on the floor, but if you're someone who works primarily on the table, we have modification trainings on our Member Mastermind Forum group.

And don't forget, each pain area module has a self-care training either for use on your own pain or to bring to your clients. Self-care is key to coaching the body back into normal functioning and it will empower you and your clients to continue making progress.

Year 2 of the Membership is equally important. It covers advanced topics that are very important for a professional clinical practice, such as Head and Neck Pain, Foot and Ankle Pain, Back Pain, Forearm and Hand Pain, and much more.
