Active Isolated stretching is a game changer when you want to lengthen muscle and correct posture.

 

” The Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.

Over the past few decades many experts have advocated that stretching should last up to 60 seconds. For years, this prolonged static stretching technique was the gold standard. However, prolonged static stretching actually decreases the blood flow within the tissue creating localized ischemia and lactic acid buildup. This can potentially cause irritation or injury of local muscular, tendinous, lymphatic, as well as neural tissues, similar to the effects and consequences of trauma and overuse syndromes. ”

Michelle’s training  of the osteopathic model allows  AIS technique in her treatments sessions to aid recovery of injury as well as structurally align posture thus reducing pain.Treating the casing around muscle and not just the muscle is the key to long term lengthening.When the fascial casing learns a new size the muscle it houses can fire with greater ease.

Active stretching refers to a physical activity in which an individual gets in to a particular position where the muscles are stretched and maintains that position without support. Active stretching usually increases active flexibility while strengthening the agonistic muscles.
