Active Isolated Stretch (AIS)

Active Isolated Stretch techniques involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds.  This method of stretching is also known to work the body's natural makeup to improve circulation and release the elasticity of muscle, joints and fascia. This method is most used by todays athletes, it allows the body to repair itself and prepare for daily activities.  

 

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)

Fascial Stretch Therapy is facilitated with a stretch therapist. FST can achieve a greater range of motion with no pain or tension all the while producing an enormously high level of stretch.  The stretch involves moving the body in a wave like motion and incorporating deep breaths synchronized with the movement. Some of its many benefits are decreased joint aches and pains, greater balance and flexibility, improves posture and mobility, shorter recovery after exercise and increase blood flow to exhausted muscles.

 

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is a more advanced form of flexibility training which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle groups being targeted.  It’s a series of movement patterns allowing the muscle to work against forces provided by a therapist and relaxations to follow when released from the muscle activation.
