Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today’s athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity.
The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is known to work with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.
The Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, Active Isolated Stretching provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
Marty’s Active Isolated Stretching treatments have proven very effective for a range of muscular problems and conditions to include Parkinson’s Disease; Stroke; Back, Knee, Shoulder and Neck Problems; and especially feet problems such as Plantar Fasciatis, Bunions and Hammer Toes.
