Service Description

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of motion. 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 for any activity and promotes faster recovery after an injury. In this basic-level class you will explore the AIS method of movement and distinguish what each stretch should feel like while evaluating your own range, quality and movement potential. You will be able to apply this knowledge to build a home stretching program for your clients’ own self-care. Course content is geared towards massage and physical therapists as well as other healthcare and fitness professionals. Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch and bring a yoga mat.
