What is Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)?


Active Isolated Stretching is a gentle, yet specific soft tissue approach that replaces the currently out dated stretching paradigm.

AIS is a systematic method of stretching that not only lengthens and strengthens the muscles and deep fascia throughout the body, it also helps to realign and restore range of motion of the joints.

AIS is based on the principles of how the body actually works using the origin, insertion and action of every muscles to get to the root cause of the pain. Then gently reeducating the area to work in a more improved functional manner.

The AIS method was created by kinesiologist, Aaron Mattes, and takes restoring physical function to a whole new level. AIS is currently used main stream by professional athletic trainers. Karla is trained and certified by Aaron Mattes and currently the only AIS practitioner in Vermont.
