What is Active Isolated Stretching?
AIS is a protocol of specialized repetitive stretches, performed in a specific order targeting myofascial (muscle and connective tissue) injury and restriction. AIS works with the primary laws of the body. It allows elongation of muscle and fascial tissue without eliciting the bodies protective mechanisms that would inhibit safe, effective stretching and overall flexibility.
Alʼs passion is incorporating Active Isolated Stretching and strengthening into patients and athletes daily routines as it improves flexibility, strength, overall fitness. This technique is equally effective with athletic performance, as well as the rehabilitation of muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries.
“I believe a therapists relationship to their patient/client is most succinctly a self actuating relationship of teacher to student. I encourage my patients and clients to be proficient in self care, and I will teach you to take care of and maintain your health with the most innovative and effective myofascial technique available.”
