Strength and Soul is a husband and wife team. Our goal is to create balance through a combination of KCR, Yoga, sport and Nutrition. We aim to create strength in the body and mind, prevent injury, reduce pain and improve physical ability.
Kev and Jo are very similar in many ways but opposite in others. Both have a passion for health and fitness, Kev in contact sports and strength training and Jo in healthy lifestyle and yoga.
strength and soul seemed like an ideal name for our venture with one of us being outwardly big and seemingly strong and the other with feeling, a warm energy, vitality and spirit.
The name goes deeper than that however, we have strength together, strength in numbers. A strong relationship and strong characters.
There are many words associated with the word soul; inspiration, emotion, passion, animation, enthusiasm, commitment, being just a few that could be used to describe us both as individuals and together.
Strength and Soul, so different yet linked in so many ways. Like us, like our relationship and like our business.
Competitive sport has been a huge part of my life from about the age of 6, I managed to stay injury free, mostly, up to the age of 10 then things went downhill! Joking aside I have had a sporting career littered with injury but wouldn’t change it for anything. I represented the district in […]
Yoga has always drawn me in, in various points throughout my life when I needed it most. From a young age I was health conscious but also clumsy and injury prone. I fell playing football when I was around 11 and fractured my coccyx. I remember receiving a book from my grandmother and trying shoulder […]
KINETIC CHAIN RELEASE
Kinetic Chain Release “KCR” developed by Hugh Gilbert is a series of mobilisations and stretches to bring the body back into alignment. Therefore helping to alleviate many problems, weak ankles, knee problems, hip and joint pain, pelvic discomforts, back, shoulder and neck pain, TMJ, headaches, snoring, chronic stress, fibromyalgia, lack of sleep, breathing difficulties, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, teeth clenching and many more.
As well as helping to alleviate pain, KCR also improves physical performance. If your body is “in balance” and working the way it should it simply helps to improve what you can accomplish. It has been proven that strength can improve, athletes can go faster, golfers can hit further, martial arts fighters can kick higher and many more.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE RELEASE
Following on from KCR, your body may require some Connective Tissue Release (CTR). Your connective tissue is like a 3D spider web in your body from head to foot without any interruption.
Your connective tissue surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and organ of the body, right down to the cellular level. Releasing connective tissue can reduce pain further, help the body gain stability, move freely and help to maintain posture and alignment. After a KCR treatment, connective tissue release much quicker and with less of an emotional release.
A fantastic session of KCR with Kev on Friday. Thanks to him and KCR, whilst squatting and running over the weekend, I felt no pain or discomfort in my lower back or hips for the first time in a long time. Great results, thanks again Kev

Lower Back Pain - Ross' Wife
Having seen first hand the benefits of KCR I had to share my experience, I have a very challenging child who reacts before engaging his brain. Constantly on the go, in and out of trouble at school. When Kevin suggested I tried KCR I was completely sceptical but willing to try anything! After the first session the first thing I noticed was how much calmer and more focused my child was. I wasn’t sure if it was specifically the kcr as I was also doing other things however when a teacher pulled me aside to say how well things had been going for the last 6 weeks the penny dropped as it had been 6 weeks since the first session. I have no idea how or why it works but it is making a huge difference to my child. So thanks again Kev!

“After my 2nd KCR sessions my ankle is better then ever (after a bad sprain affected movement). Also my lower back pain is gone so I’m sleeping right throught the night without waking because I’m uncomfortable. I also ran 13k race with no knee or ankle problems at all. I used to struggle with pain after 5k. Thank you!”
