LMT #002148, NCBTMB-CEP #451030-09, A.C.E Provider A.I.S. – ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING & STRENGTHENING (25 CEUs NCBTMB) by NCBTMB & the State of GA

Active Isolated Stretching & Strengthening: The Mattes Method: Centers on the physiological principles of specific muscle lengthening & strengthening, increased circulation plus oxygen to the tissues, lengthening & strengthening of the superficial and deep fascia. The seminar involves exact details of how to safely lengthen & strengthening 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, osteoporosis, neuropathy and other factors. These conditions include Thoracic outlet, frozen shoulders, Kyphosis, Lordosis, rotator cuff, tennis and golfer’s elbow, neck, wrist, hands and finger problems.

The Mattes Method (AIS) is incorporated into a 3 day 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 and 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” innervation, 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 & strengthened • Isolate the muscles to be stretched & strengthened by using precise localized movements • Perform treatment for specific strength of fundamental movements Materials:

You will receive the Active Isolated Stretching: & Strengthening: The Mattes Method Books and a stretching rope.
