Active Isolated Stretching

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a method of muscle lengthening and fascial release that can be used as a type of Athletic Stretching Technique to provide effective, dynamic facilitated stretching of major muscle groups. More importantly, AIS works to help the body re-educate soft tissue by providing functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.

AIS can serve as a stand-alone session, or can easily be incorporated into a massage as well. Active movement of the antagonist muscle by the client coupled with a 2-second stretch to the target muscle enhances lengthening of muscle tissue while not engaging the stretch reflex.

Clients who have received AIS commonly report:

  • Increase in joint flexibility and restoration of full Range-of-Motion.
  • Increase in muscle-tendon flexibility
  • Increase in body awareness
  • Decrease in pain surrounding a joint

NOTE: Clients should wear clothing made from stretchable fabrics, and/or “gym-type” clothes to session. Those that do not will be offered a massage therapy session and/or asked to rebook.

1 hr: $100.00
