Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of movement. It remodels the body using gentle, rhythmic movements that avoid triggering the myotactic reflex, which causes a contraction in the tissues being stretched. Utilizing the principles developed by Aaron Mattes, this unique stretching modality restores joint mobility, reduces muscular/fascial tension, changes neurology and improves circulation. The simple yet profound difference is to avoid triggering the myotactic reflex. Repeated, active muscle contractions along with gentle stretches create a venous/lymphatic pump, decreasing inflammation and combating disease. Dysfunctional movement patterns are exposed. Using pain free movements, the tissues are retrained and balance is restored to the joint.

In this basic level class you will identify the physiology of AIS. You will use ROM and palpation to evaluate quality of movement and muscles before and after treatment. Determine through assessment when it is safe to perform stretching and which stretches to apply. The techniques taught will treat a wide variety of disorders in the shoulders, cervical spine and jaw. The material presented covers frozen shoulder, TMJ, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash and other upper body conditions. Course content is geared towards healthcare professionals and athletic trainers.
