ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING
The Mattes Method (AIS) centers on physiological principles of specific muscle lengthening, increased circulation and oxygen to the tissues, and lengthening of the superficial and deep fascia.
AIS is one of the methods of stretching most used by today’s professional athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. It allows the body to repair itself and prepare for daily activity. The technique involves holding specific stretches for one to two seconds, which enables the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of joint, muscles and fascia.
The AIS Method teaches you specific corrective exercises to strengthen and lengthen muscles for injury prevention and rehabilitation. You will learn hands-on techniques that enhance physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, osteopathic medicine, athletic and personal training, energy work and all massage modalities and techniques.
AIS is an outstanding modality for improving posture, eliminating abnormal curvatures such as scoliosis and kyphosis as well as restoring proper body alignment. It also helps eliminate physical pain caused by repetitive stress and chronic pain due to old athletic injuries or injuries in general. AIS can affect positive change in such conditions as carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, neck and back pain and well as shoulder and rotator cuff condition
