Active Isolated Stretching(A.I.S) is an important part of warm-up, warm-down, training and rehabilitation. Specificity in your stretching routines are important to achieve maximum circulation, oxygenation, relaxation, lymphatic circulation, nutritional deliverance and tissue elongation.

The process begins with identification of the specific muscles and tissues to be stretched. The opposite side antagonist muscle contract to move the muscles to be stretched. The golgi tendon and myotatic stretch reflexes act as safety mechanisms to protect the tissues acted upon. “No pain, no gain” is a dangerous philosophy. Any program which places the joints, muscles, fascia and other connective protocols will endanger the tissues acted upon.

By attending our group sessions you will discover a variety of detailed specific exercise protocols for Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S.) that can increase tissue-joint movement and improve physiological function without the pain and injury potential that exists in many programs.

Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S) is a vital component of injury prevention, rehabilitation, sports training and performance, longevity enhancement and in general a healthier lifestyle.
