Clients of all ages and health conditions can gain
significant improvement from a method of stretching
known as AIS. It is an efficient and effective exercise system. In addition
to quickly building strength and flexibility, it can help speed recovery from
a wide variety of pain and injury problems. AIS has proven effective in helping
clients, including elderly people, to regain their coordination, fine motor
skills, and full range of motion; helping athletes to achieve maximum performance;
and helping individuals with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, muscular
dystrophy, thoracic outlet syndrome, ALS, and other diseases to slow or even
reverse the progression of debilitating neuromuscular symptoms.
- - AIS
speeds the healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joints.
Combining this technique with other forms of treatment can accelerate the
recovery process by up to 50%. Additionally, increasing flexibility, strength,
and resilience can greatly reduce an individual’s vulnerability to
As we grow older, many of us accept limitations to our body’s functioning
(such as a reduced range of motion, decreased strength and flexibility,
and impaired coordination or fine motor skills) as an inevitable result
of the aging process or degenerative diseases. Through AIS, many of these
declines can be successfully prevented or reversed.
Restoring optimal health
in areas of the body that have been injured, neglected, or overstressed
can have profound effects on a person’s well-being and quality of
Gentle stretching movements
can invigorate the circulatory, respiratory, and neuromuscular systems,
which help alleviate many of the symptoms of stress.
- Flexibility is a key determinant among top athletes. It provides for maximal
strength performance factors such as momentum, acceleration, force, inertia,
levels and angles of muscle contraction and stretching. Flexibility is the
most important factor in the longevity of an athlete and is key to the prevention
and recovery of sports injuries. The primary obstacle to flexibility is
the tightness of the surrounding muscles and fascia of a joint.
