AIS (Active Isolated Stretching)
The Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
Active Isolated Stretching is the creation of Kinesiologist Aaron L. Mattes, MS, RKT, LMT. Aaron began his creation of Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) over 40 years ago.
AIS Stretches are performed seated on a chair developed by Aaron Mattes or on a cushioned table.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Stretching
PNF Stretching is a form of flexibility training used to increase range of motion, increase flexibility and stability within a joint. The contract and release method is simple and effective in helping individuals meet their goals of targeted muscle activation to regain movement loss due to age, movement habits, injuries and reduce pain due to muscle flexibility imbalances. PNF stretching sessions are performed by Trainer that has specialty training in PNF.
