Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a modality of stretching and strengthening developed by Aaron Mattes, MS, RKI, LMT. Nearly forty years ago, Aaron Mattes began to dissect movement and develop exercise protocols to increase flexibility and to strengthen specific muscle groups, individual muscles, and parts of those muscles. Over the years, his combination of flexibility and strengthening exercises have become systematic, progressive, and effective.
The techniques can be done in a chair or on a table. The practitioner instructs the client in how to perform the stretches, which isolate and stretch specific muscles, gently and incrementally using multiple repetitions and deep breathing. After a session, one feels more flexible, relaxed, stronger, and more balanced. In addition, clients can learn AIS stretching and strengthening exercise protocols to do on their own.
