Kinetic Chain Release

Kinetic Chain Release (KCR)

KCR was developed by Hugh Gilbert a Physiotherapist from Govan, Scotland. He created this protocol over 30 years during his 45+ years physiotherapy career.

This is a simple and effective protocol using a series of mobilizations and stretches to help return the body to its natural dynamic state.

KCR works directly on a number of internal structures including skeletal system, muscular system and connective tissue system.


KCR brings relief from:

Carpal Tunnel                         Chronic Fatigue                          Chronic knee issues

Sprained Ankles                      Migraine                                   Headaches

Scoliosis                                 Teeth Clenching                         Tight calves

Connective Tissue Release (CTR) The Hugh Gilbert Method

CTR is a follow on from KCR. If KCR hasn't successfully resolved an issue then there will be a restriction in the connective tissue system. CTR the Hugh Gilbert Method is a special focused form of connective tissue release and the work is focused on the joints. Specific CTR mobilisations will be performed after a full KCR to help release the connective tissue.

KCR Woman's Health

A special series of mobilisations added onto the end of a full KCR session to help bring ease and relief from a number of women's health issues including menstrual issues and hormone imbalances etc.

Postural Energetics (PE)
