AIS – Active Isolated Stretching


Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is an effective treatment for deep and superficial fascial release. The AIS method of fascial release provides dynamic facilitated stretching of major muscle groups that restore proper fascial planes for optimal physiological function.
Even degenerative conditions (multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons, and degenerative disc disease…) can improve with AIS; partly by stimulating neurogenesis (the development of nerve tissues) and helping to create new neural pathways. AIS can play a central role in the healing process by enhancing flexibility, strength, and the overall health of both joints and soft tissues.
