Paul and Paula Rastrick are the founders of Brain Body Fitness and Rehab and the creators of The Brain Body Method ™. They are the only husband and wife team in the country who have worked together in Premier League Football. Paula remains the only woman to have ever been employed full-time integrating Sports Psychology, Yoga and Pilates. She developed and created a fully integrated Yoga and Pilates rehabilitation studio within Aston Villa’s training ground at Bodymoor Heath.

Our cutting edge methodology has been created, developed, researched and applied over many years and is a result of our joint vast experience of working within Premier League Football. Our practice is underpinned by evidence based research gained from our combined 30 years of working within Sports Science and Medicine and our backgrounds in Physiotherapy, Injury Rehabilitation, Sport and Exercise Psychology, High Performance Coaching and Sports Yoga and Pilates.

We believe that the brain and the nervous system is the powerhouse of the body and this is key to unlocking both peak mental and physical fitness at any age and for any body. We use our vast experience and expertise to empower each individual to maximise their peak performance potential by tapping into the power of neuroscience, psychology and transformational coaching. Whether that be to rehabilitate from injury, move away from pain, become physically fitter, stronger and more mentally resilient – we will help you to unleash your performance potential for sport or life. Previously Paula and Paul founded Physiyolates a specialist pilates, physio and rehab clinic in Knowle just outside Solihull in the West Midlands.
