 (September 14-16) ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING (A.I.S.)

Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S.)

3 Days - taught by John R. Howard, LMT #002148, NCBTMB-CEP #451030-09, A.C.E Provider

DATES: September 14, 15 & 16 2018
Stretching

A.I.S. - ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING: (24 CEUs approved by NCBTMB & the State of GA)

Active Isolated Stretching: The Mattes Method centers on physiological principles of specific muscle lengthening increased circulation and oxygen to the tissues, lengthening of the superficial and deep fascia. The seminar involves exact details of how to safely lengthen muscles and fascia simultaneously maintaining a physiologically based agonist-antagonist relationship.

The seminar is 15% lectures, 85% hands-on work. Detailed approaches to each muscle surrounding a joint, various indications and contraindications related to diseases, injuries, joint replacements, and osteoporosis and aging factors. Carpal tunnel, thoracic outlet, tendonitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, whiplash, cervical problems, kyphosis, rotator cuff, more sports injuries and chronic pain conditions are discussed and demonstrated during the seminar.

This 3-Day workshop will cover the following selected areas:

  • Purpose of stretching
  • Reasons for lack of flexibility
  • Basic overview of stretching techniques - Ballistic, passive, static stretching,
    Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
  • When is stretching important - warm-up, warm down, rehabilitation
  • Outline of important Active Isolated Stretching principles - identify, isolate,
    intensify. Physiology - blood flow, oxygen (exhalation, inhalation), stretch
    reflex, Golgi tendon reflex, fascia, joint capsule, muscles
  • Active Isolated Stretching considerations - Sherrington's Law, "no pain, no
    gain, Innervations, inhibition - concentric, eccentric contraction, external
    assistance Active Isolated Stretching - Rehabilitation Modality - trigger points,
    bio mechanical stress, soft, pliable scar, removal toxins, acids Active Lymphatic
    system, Aids in lung ventilation, Nourishes and lubricates muscles Specific injury
    techniques
  • Identify the specific muscles to be stretched
  • Isolate the muscles to be stretched by using precise localized movements
  • Perform treatment for specific strength of fundamental movements

Materials: You will receive an Active Isolated Stretching: The Mattes Method Book and a stretching rope.
