A.I.S - Active Isolated Stretching
The Mattes method is a myofascial release technique that aims to restore flexibility by breaking down adhesions in soft tissue and lengthening the range of motion of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia surrounding the joint.
AIS employs short stretches for just two seconds, so that the stretched area can relax before triggering the stretch reflex.
AIS improves the flexibility and health of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Stretching improves oxygenation, stimulates circulation and helps to remove metabolic waste.
