Active Isolated Stretching

In Massage, self care, Uncategorized on January 28, 2021 at 5:19 PM

Quickly increase the range of movement in your neck by using a simple technique called Active Isolated Stretching. I’ll teach you two stretches in this video and give you an introduction to what A.I.S. is. By actively using our breath we increase blood flow to the tissues – and that means more oxygen and nutrients getting to the muscles. By specifically engaging one muscle group – the opposite is encouraged to relax – this is called reciprocal inhibition. And by holding each stretch for only 2 seconds we avoid engaging the stretch reflex. Try it out and let me know what results you achieve. As always I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂
