This is the final of two practical courses we offer in Connective Tissue Release – the Hugh Gilbert Method™.

In this 2-day course you will receive fourteen hours of hands-on training in accessing planes of fascia not usually addressed in traditional myofascial or connective tissue release work.

Our Connective Tissue Release 1 course provides a powerful set of releases which can be used to treat a range of symptoms that may remain unresolved by KCR. Over the duration of the two-part course, you will receive a comprehensive toolkit for addressing a diverse set of conditions.

You also will be trained how to make informed selections for which techniques should be chosen in various situation. Taught in a classroom setting, you will directly experience the benefits of these techniques.

NB: Introduction to Connective Tissue and Connective Tissue Release 1 must be completed prior to Connective Tissue Release 2.

Entry Requirements: KCR & Introduction to Connective Tissue

Course Duration: Two Days (14 hands-on hours)

Qualification Obtained: Certificate of Completion of Connective Tissue Release enabling full, immediate implementation.

The Course Teaches: Our Connective Tissue Release courses cumulatively prepare you as a practitioner to assist those who have not yet achieved full resolution of symptoms through the application of the Kinetic Chain Release protocol alone.

You will learn releases specific to the ankles, knees, pelvis, spine and chest, and many more over the two courses.

Although not all clients will require this work, it is nevertheless an exceptional skill set to have available in your toolkit for situations where further intervention is needed.

Connective Tissue Release is KCR Academy’s name for an advanced set of techniques based on myofascial release work.

These were developed over many years by Hugh Gilbert and his eventual body of work is so extensive it has to be taught over two courses.

The general definition for Myofascial release is: ‘an alternative medicine therapy  useful for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.’
