Active Isolated Stretching

Posted by admin on 27 April, 2014




Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a technique that is extremely effective in rehabilitating injured muscles. In contrast to traditional stretching, it is less likely to overstretch and tear muscle fibers. You can do AIS yourself with great results, or you may get better results with assisted AIS by booking an appointment with Kristin. The AIS will be paired with massage techniques such as myofascial release and trigger point. Results are usually immediate and dramatic.
