Our focus and primary treatment technique at Stretch is Active Isolated Stretching.
AIS involves muscle rehabilitation and injury prevention using a scientific approach to stretching, as developed by Aaron Mattes in Florida, USA for the last 35 years. Through reciprocal innervation of muscles that are actively contracted, the antagonist muscles will be relaxed and therefore safely stretched so as to increase joint and muscle mobility.
This method of muscle lengthening and fascial release provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, and importantly functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. With AIS, we work on increasing flexibility and re-aligning posture to relieve pain and discomfort. Treatment can also boost sports performance and reduce long term wear and tear from poor postural symmetry. Due to the fundamental principles of this technique it is quite gentle and people are only taken to their individual body's natural barriers, making it suitable for just about anyone, including those rehabilitating, and for those with busy lifestyles, poor posture or mobility it an make a big difference.
