About Active Isolated Stretching

Why experience Active Isolated Stretching?

  • To enhance your ability to treat and prevent injuries. AIS speeds the healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joints. Combining this technique with other forms of treatment can accelerate the recovery process by up to 50%. And by increasing flexibility, strength, and resilience, it can greatly reduce an individual’s vulnerability to future injuries. When minor strains or tears do occur, continued AIS work helps to prevent the buildup of scar tissue —a major contributor to stiffness, inflexibility, chronic injury, and pain conditions.


  • To help you 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, often dramatically improving a person’s well-being and quality of life.

  • 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 — including Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other diseases — that do not respond to other forms of manual treatment.
