Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a systematic method of muscle lengthening and fascial release that redefines what it means to “stretch.”  AIS is a type of facilitated stretching that employs active movement on the part of the recipient to balance the pull of soft tissue across a specific joint, providing both functional and physiological restoration to both the superficial and deep fascial planes.

Over the past few decades many experts have suggested that stretches should be held for 60 seconds.  For years, this prolonged static stretching technique was the gold standard; however, prolonged static stretching actually decreases the blood flow within tissue and creates localized ischemia and lactic acid buildup.  Similar to the consequences of trauma and overuse syndromes, this type of stretching actually works against the physiological laws that dictate how the body functions by potentially causing irritation and injury to local muscular, tendinous, lymphatic, and neural tissues.
