Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)

Instructor: Diane Waye

Learn & practice the powerful tool of Mattes Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) while earning continuing education credits for your professional certifications. Solve tissue issues, alleviate pain, facilitate longevity of joints and optimize movement patterns for your clients and yourself.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is an extremely effective and valuable myofascial therapy used by massage therapists, medical professionals, trainers, PT’s, PFT’s, and coaches to trainers, and world-class athletes.

With Active Isolated Stretching (AIS):

  • Increase joint ease, range of motion, and function.
  • Improve circulation, oxygenation, and clear lymph.
  • Open the flow for the meridians of acupuncture (as most are deep fascial planes).
  • Energize, relax, restore and refresh bodies with science.
  • Cultivate a light touch to work with neurology in this scientifically sound way.
  • Feel amazing about your work – and in your own body!

The assisted stretching you will learn will help you for years to come. Invest in your business and your health!

While non-professionals with a working knowledge of anatomy are welcome, this workshop is designed primarily for bodyworkers, physical therapists, OTs, athletic trainers, chiropractors, nurses, and other health professionals who want to expand their ways of working with their clients and patients by learning this state-of-the-art flexibility paradigm. Bodyworkers and health professionals will recognize the scientific principles that make AIS so effective. Neuromuscular and neurological reprogramming and myofascial release are intrinsic to The Mattes Method.

Prerequisite (see above). Bring two sheets to class.
Tuition: $650 – which includes two recent books by Aaron Mattes, and a strap.  Enrollment is limited to preserve the quality of the learning environment.
