Back in grade school you were probably taught the importance of warm-up exercises and it’s likely you’ve continued with pretty much of the same routines ever since. Since then, Science has moved on. Researchers now believe that some of the more entrenched elements of warm-up regimens and stretches are not only a waste of time but are actually harmful for you. The old presumption that holding a stretch for 20 to 30 seconds — known as “staticstretching” is by today’s principles, absolutely dead wrong. In fact, it actually weakens them. In a recent study conducted, individuals generated less force from their leg muscles after static stretching than they did after not stretching at all. Other studies have found that this stretching decreases muscle strength by as much as 30 percent. Also, stretching one leg’s muscles can reduce strength in the other leg as well, probably because the central nervous system rebels against the movements. Proper stretches should do two things: loosen muscles and tendons to increase the range of motion of various joints. That’s why it’s so important to stretch in the correct manner.
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals.
Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity.
The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.
Active Isolated Stretching is the way to stretch for the future…

Below is a list of frequently asked the questions, followed by their corresponding answers. The chances are good that you'll find the answer(s) below. If you find you’re still having trouble finding the answer you are looking for, please email us at anytime....
"Can anything be done for Scoliosis"?
Scoliosis has been frequently treated successfully with specific AIS exercises to stretch muscles of the trunk, neck, hips and pelvis. Stretching alone will not change the curvature and stabilize the structure. Specific isolated strength exercises for the back, hip, neck and abdominal regions are an important part of the treatment plan. The use of seat belts for stabilization has been a great assistance.
"I sprained my ankle or have foot/arch problems, what do I do"?
Ice frequently. Use a pressure wrap and begin gentle AIS stretching and mild, specific strengthening exercises for each fundamental movement of the ankle (dorsal flexion, plantar flexion), sub-talar joints (inversion, eversion) and specific foot exercises. As the range increases and strength improves, the Mattes Ankle Exerciser is a versatile piece of equipment displayed and described in this web site to restore strength and help prevent ankle sprains, shin splints, foot problems, etc. Use of the Mattes Ankle Exerciser and other specific foot exercises, using a towel, stocking and resistive weights are employed successfully for foot problems and arch development.
"How do I stretch my calves"?
Traditionally, the calves are stretched from the standing position by leaning against a supportive wall, fence, etc. The main problem is the Gastrocnemius (calf) muscle, which is stabilizing the knee and ankle joints, is performing a lengthening contraction to stabilize both joints and the muscle is not relaxed. The best stretching position for a relaxed calf is to be performed in a sitting position. Place a rope or strap around the ball of the foot. Keep the knee straight. Lift the foot and ankle backwards and assist with a rope. For greater specificity turn foot inward 20 degrees and lift the ankle back to stretch outer belly of calf. Next turn the foot outward 20 degrees and pull ankle back to stretch inner belly of calf. As the calf becomes more flexible, lean the upper body forward 15-20 degrees to provide greater stretch potential.
"My hamstrings are always tight"?
The hamstrings are best stretched when incorporating the quadriceps. Use of a rope or strap is helpful. The distal end (insertion) of the hamstrings should be stretched before the proximal (origin) end. The "Bent Knee Hamstring Stretch" is used to stretch the distal attachment. To become more specific the lower leg is first rotated inward to stretch the distal inner hamstrings. Rotate the lower leg outward for the distal outer hamstrings. Incorporate the "Straight Leg Hamstring Stretch" for the muscle belly and proximal attachments. The Knee must remain extended. Use rope or strap to assist. After initial straight leg stretch, perform movement with full leg rotated inward for oblique fibers of inner hamstrings. Rotate leg outward and move leg toward opposite side shoulder to isolate oblique fibers of biceps femoris (outer hamstring).
"Is there any way to prevent Carpal Tunnel and can it be relieved without surgery"?
The prevention of carpal tunnel involves specific stretching for the neck, anterior shoulder/chest muscles and the radioulnar, wrist and hand muscles. AIS have been used by thousands of secretaries, computer personnel and people who do repetitive movements. During the past 30 years, thousands have been relieved from Carpal Tunnel symptoms without surgery by employing specific AIS stretching and strengthening programs.
“Is there anyway do reduce low back problems”?
Most low back problems stem from a couple of different areas. One area that attributes to low back problems is weak abdominal muscles. Many people with low back problems have very under developed abdominal muscles. It is important to build up the abdominal muscles using abdominal crunches or half sit-ups also known as” pelvic tilts”. The strengthening book, "Active Isolated Strengthening" goes into great detail working with the lower back and abdominal muscles. Also, tight hamstrings attribute to many problems associated with the low back problems/pain.
“I like to improve my Golf techniques. Should I stretch”?
Stretching is a very important part of Golf. Not only to prevent injuries but also to improve the power exerted in Golf. Golf, by all means, is a power sport. The greater the amount of strength or power you can exert with the golf club to the ball, the greater the velocity the ball will travel when you can hit the ball. Power equals the amount of strength you can exert over a great range of motion divided by time. What this means is if you can take the strength you already have and use it through a greater range of motion, this will allow you to achieve a greater power potential. Most golfers, who are known as "long ball hitters", are able to achieve greater motion on their back swing and range of motion in the hips on the torso region to achieve greater power on the active swing motion. So flexibility is an intrical part of golf. Increasing your flexibility will also help to prevent injury on the deceleration phase of the swing as well. If the muscles are more flexible, when the shoulders, arms and torso have to decelerate the swing, there will be a decreased chance of injury.
"Would it help for Runners and Walkers?"
Running and walking are very strenuous activities on the body. The exercise affects almost every aspect of the muscular skeletal system. Using Active Isolated Stretching, you will actually warm the muscles (joints and fascia) preparing it for running or walking. Proper preparation for your activity will not only help to decrease the chance for injury, but also to slow the process of fatigue. The more flexible the body is, the more efficient it can be. If the body is properly warmed up, the cardiovascular system is able to better oxygenate the muscles decreasing the rate fatigue or lactic acid. Stretching will also help to remove or decrease fatigue after running or walking by pumping the lactic acid away from the muscles. Thus removing the toxic material from the muscles that causes them to be sore. you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service?

“I couldn’t believe that in a few hours John showed me how to relieve the pain that I had spent hundreds of hours with physical therapists trying to exercise away! My posture and sense of well-being improved so much that people told me how great I looked and even asked me if I had lost weight! I recommend John to everyone I meet who has chronic pain from an injury or an illness. After struggling for years with bad posture, related stiffness in my back, neck and shoulders from old football injuries… I finally found relief !”
» Sid Abramowitz, Former Pro Football Player
Woodstock, GA USA
“John’s amazing success with my knee problems impressed me. I sought his help as a last resort after trying both yoga and many different massage techniques. In just 15 minutes of his masterful touch, my knee swelling and pain disappeared completely. It sounds too good to be true but it really works immediately! I would definitely recommend him both professionally and personally for any joint issues or any other injuries.
»Adrienne Ivey, Licensed Massage Therapist
Roswell, GA USA
"I'm writing to thank you John, once more. For years I've had aching hips, which I attributed to the wear and tear of aging. Little did I realize that by standing and walking as I did, I was unconsciously exacerbating the problem and in fact, causing it. Now, after your sessions and practicing them at home, I get up in the morning, walk two miles and have no pain "
»Elizabeth Blackard, Elementary School Teacher
Claremore, OK USA
"All I can say is that it really works! The pain in my neck and shoulders were so bad that I was having difficulty sleeping. I am finding more relief and am optimistic that soon I will be completely back to normal. You have made a believer out of me."
»Richard De La OSA, Mortgage Broker
Coral Gables, FL USA
"I have been a client of John’s for a number of years. I have fibromyalgia and other issues as well as the usual stressors of life in general. John has always met my needs physically for flexibility and relaxation. I even feel 2 inches taller when the session is over! I recommend him to friends and family frequently. His pleasant and calm personality makes everyone feel at ease."
