Kinetic - Energy in Motion

Chain - Connection

Release - Return to Health


Kinetic Chain Release (KCR) is a system of medically and scientifically approved gentle mobilisations and stretches as developed by Scottish Physiotherapist Hugh Gilbert.  It is a type of remedial massage, but not in the relaxing traditional sense lying on the couch for the whole time - some techniques are lying on the back, then the front, on a chair.  It is a simple powerful, total body technique that rebalances the whole body.  It doesn't just help ease the painful or troublesome area, it supports the whole body so there is no negative knock-on effect.

KCR is a scientifically proven, 23 step protocol of mobilisations and stretches that quickly and effectively shortens injury and recovery time, and releases a multitude of aches and pains and rebalances bodies fast.

The KCR bodywork protocol quickly brings bodies back into balance, alleviating problems such as weak ankles, knee problems, hip and joint pain, pelvic discomforts, back, shoulder and neck pain, RSI and headaches.

The rapid restorative effects of bringing the body back into balance quickly restores energy levels.

KCR is great for assisting in the full recovery from a range of physical injuries

KCR often alleviates and releases a wide range of chronic pain issues

KCR has been proven to improve physical strength, suppleness and flexibility

KCR was matched against a wide range of other bodywork treatments in a controlled, scientific study* and proved itself to be the quickest and most effective method to return the body to health.  KCR proved itself to be a Gold Standard to restore the body.  * FOTO Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes USA

KCR will not only restore your body to its pre-injury state of health but will also improve performance levels

KCR will also reduce natural wear and tear and effects of ageing on the body

The body is an interconnected network.  If one part is 'out', all parts are 'out' leading to all kinds of problems.

KCR improves your core strength making your body stronger, faster, more supple and more flexible and is suitable for all ages from the very young to the aged.

To look at the science behind Kinetic Chain Release, and what clients say about KCR, visit the KCR website.  The cast of Cat's, the Musical, took a KCR Practitioner on tour with them.
