Come join us in our peaceful studio to increase your flexibility and reduce stress in an "AIS" stretching session.
What is AIS (Active Isolated Stretching)?
AIS is a specific unique method of stretching used by many of today's professional athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and various professionals. AIS allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. Each stretch is held for only two seconds and each muscle is stretched in an isolated manner by moving in a specific direction and position.
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. The Mattes Method incorporates a key concept, which states that only relaxed myofascial structures will allow themselves to be optimally stretched. When a muscle on one side of a joint is contracted, the muscle on the opposite side sends a neurological signal to relax or release. Combining this knowledge with a slow controlled rhythmic stretch of no greater than two seconds provides for a neurologically sound technique that does not trigger a reflexive antagonistic contraction which would inhibit the stretch potential of the muscle.
"As life progresses we often begin to lose our flexibility which decreases posture and agility. Human movement is more enjoyable when the body is flexible and capable of performing without restriction."
