Active Isolated Stretching

Do you want to learn how to stretch intelligently & effectively, and heal in the process – Active Isolated Stretching is for you!

AIS is one of the methods of stretching most used by today’s athletes, massage therapists, personal trainers, and sport professionals. The AIS method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. AIS allows and even teaches the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity.

The AIS technique involves the method of isolating as much as possible the muscle compartment to be worked on, holding each stretch for only two seconds and repeating the movement for a number of repetitions to achieve increased length and pliability. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

In a session of AIS you will remain fully clothed and do most of the work, while the practitioner instructs, guides and gently assists with the stretch. Assisted AIS sessions are usually longer than massage sessions. You own self stretching sessions can be either brief or thorough, depending on your own schedule. We will teach you a protocol to take home with you. The efficacy of this treatment modality depends on your commitment to stretch daily. We will empower & support you in this undertaking, we will not make you dependent on us.
