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 Clinical Thai Bodywork 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 massage techniques, but an in-depth understanding of the muscular effects of each technique along with professional training in trigger point therapy. Our students learn to treat specific pain complaints with a high rate of success using CTB, and we offer two levels of professional certification in coursework approved by NCBTMB for continuing education in massage.
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.
Leo Passage came to the United States in 1958, traveling with his wife Lenie and pair of shears. Leo was a rising star in the European hairdressing world, and had already gained noticed for his cuts that were a little more creative than most. He drew inspiration from the Bahaus principles of art and design as a starting point for his hair styles. His creative approach to personal style won him 95 hair dressing competitions and the title of World Supreme Champion and Hairdresser of the Year at New York's famed International Beauty Show in 1961. A year later, Leo decided to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of hairdressers, and founded the first Pivot Point Academy on the north side of Chicago.
Now, more than 50 years after its founding, Pivot Point's schools still embrace Leo's creative vision. Instructors arm students with top notch hair cutting and aesthetic skills, as well as an impeccable eye of style. The schools invite clients to come experience just how talented their students are with services such as haircuts, manicures, and pedicures, the cure for a listless foot.
Inside a series of plain-white, windowed studios, empty except for futons and pillows, the professional therapists at Zen Shiatsu Chicago heal bodies with techniques rooted in millennia-old traditions. At the same time, they pass those techniques on to students in the zen-shiatsu certification school that shares space with the clinic. Teachers and students perform shiatsu therapy, using both hands to manipulate muscles and unblock clients’ energy pathways. They also administer contemporary Western massages to ease tense muscles, whereas acupuncture treatments let out bodies’ excess helium.
In addition to awarding certifications and leading continuing education in massage, naprapathy, physical therapy, and acupuncture, instructors train students outside the classroom through social outreach, exposure to integrative medicine, and visits to local hospitals’ neck-cramp wards.

The trainers at Sports Made Personal have youthful passions for soccer and lacrosse, and channel that alacrity into focused and goal-oriented skill sets. Whether training in an individual or group setting, they teach players how to identify their own individual strengths and weaknesses. Trainers help with this process by tailoring their programs to factors such as skill levels, personalities, learning tendencies, and opinions on mascots. After repetitive coaching on basic skills, players can put them to use in game environments where the competitive nature of professional training comes into play. Stemming from their own backgrounds in collegiate and professional play, trainers expand upon the physical aspects of games by fine-tuning the technical aspects of each sport, eliminating players' tendencies to pick up the ball and eat it.
