Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is probably the best method of stretching most used by today’s athletes, professionals in several foreign countries, including the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, New Zealand Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa.
Stretch therapy (AIS) allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of very precise movements executed by a specialist therapist in order to facilitate healing and recovery of musculoskeletal tissue.
This method of stretching is also known to work with the body’s natural physiological make-up to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia. See a video from the inventor and founder of Active Isolated stretching and owner of StretchingUSA ,Mr Aaron L mattes.
StretchingSA is closely affiliated with Mr Mattes and StretchingUSA ,and is committed in bringing a brighter future for stretching therapy around the globe, by ensuring top quality work done through only the most skilled stretch therapists.
