Active Isolated Stretching for Self-Care:  Lower Body | 4 CE credits

 

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of movement.  It uses gentle, rhythmic movements that avoid triggering the myotatic stretch reflex, a protective contraction in tissue being stretched.  The neurological end result is a more balanced, parasympathetic state.  Active muscle engagement with every stretch creates a safe and optimal environment for flexibility gains and healing.  Repetition remodels tissue and creates a "pumping" action, which increases circulation to the targeted tissues.  AIS prepares you and your clients for any activity and promotes faster recovery after an injury.

In this basic-level class you will explore how to stretch yourself and distinguish what each stretch should feel like, while evaluating your own range and movement potential.  Apply this knowledge to build a home stretching program for your clients' own self-care.  Course content is geared towards healthcare and fitness professionals.  Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch.  These stretches are done seated and standing.

CE contact hours:  4 hours (WA, NCBTMB)

Time:  4pm to 815pm (15 minute break)
Cost:  $100 two weeks prior to class;  $125 thereafter.  Includes electronic manual and stretching strap for new students

Active Isolated Stretching for the Lower Body | 14 CE credits

 

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of movement.  It remodels the body using gentle, rhythmic movements that avoid triggering the myotatic stretch reflex, which causes a contraction in the tissues being stretched.  Utilizing the principles developed by Aaron Mattes, this unique stretching modality restores joint mobility, reduces muscular/fascial tension, changes neurology and improves circulation.  The simple yet profound difference is to avoid triggering the myotatic reflex.  Repeated, active muscle contractions along with gentle stretches create a venous/lymphatic pump, decreasing inflammation and combating disease.  Dysfunctional movement patterns are exposed.  Using pain free movements, the tissues are retrained and balance is restored to the joint. 

In this basic level class you will identify the physiology behind AIS and use the techniques to stretch yourself and assist your clients.  Evaluate range and quality of movement before and after stretching and apply the techniques to treat a wide variety of disorders in the lumbar spine, hips and knees.  The material presented covers disc condition, nerve impingement, sciatica, groin impingement,  .S/I dysfunction and ITB syndrome among other disorders.  Course content is geared towards healthcare professionals, personal and athletic trainers.

The class completes one of the requirement for gaining basic AIS level certification AIS Northwest.
