Any professional concerned with enhancing musculoskeletal health — whether through massage therapy, physical therapy, fitness training, or other modalities — understands that the way people exercise has a profound impact on their overall health, mobility, resilience, and ability to recover from injuries.
While many different types of exercise may be beneficial, one in particular stands out from the rest as a uniquely efficient and effective approach: Active Isolated Stretching & Strengthening (AIS), developed by kinesiologist Aaron Mattes.
Why Practice AIS?
- To enhance your ability to treat and prevent injuries. AIS speeds the healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joints. And by increasing flexibility, strength, and resilience, it can greatly reduce an individual's vulnerability to future injuries.
- To help clients feel younger and healthier. As we grow older, many of us accept limitations to our body’s functioning (such as a reduced range of motion, decreased strength and flexibility, and impaired coordination or fine motor skills) as an inevitable result of the aging process. Through AIS, many of these declines can be successfully prevented or reversed.
- To work with degenerative neuromuscular conditions. By stimulating neural growth, creating new neural pathways, and reducing muscle spasticity, AIS can successfully reduce the symptoms of various debilitating conditions that do not respond to other forms of manual treatment.
What You Will Learn in this Course:
This intensive training will give you a solid foundation in the principles of AIS and the skills to apply them to the neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. You'll learn to:
- Assess the optimal range of motion for each joint
- Maximize the flexibility of every major muscle in the upper body
- Stretch with precision the proximal and distal aspects of the muscle separately
- Take joints to their healthy maximum range of motion
- Efficiently increase strength in perfect alignment
- Use these techniques to speed recovery from injury
