Active Isolated Stretching

Experience Active Isolated Stretching ( A.I.S.) for pain relief, and a dramatic improvement in range of motion and quality of life. AIS is not massage, rather a stretching and strengthening therapy, often combines with other modalities and aftercare to help you continue on your path of wellness. 

Clinical director, Mark Lohmann states "  I have been practicing Active Isolated Stretching is by far the single  most effective modality that we have to offer and A.I.S. is perhaps the most amazing bodywork modality I have ever encountered, hands down." 

If your like most of us...the first words out of your mouth may be " Oh yeh....I stretch, or, I've done some yoga... or, I did that back when i was playing football in college,  or I tried to stretch and I didn't see results".  

AIS is different for a number of very specific reasons....   There is a science to the reasons WHY it is so different, and WHY it works so much better than any other method of stretching out there. For one, we isolate the muscles in an AIS session.  There are over 40 moves for the hip region and over 30 for the shoulders. We do short 2 second stretches, which yields far superior results.   Experience a session at Planet Massage today, and see for yourself what AIS can do for you!

Active Isolated Stretching is best experienced... though a series of sessions with a trained AIS specialist. While almost everyone notices change from your first visit, your therapist goal is to work with you to address problem areas specific to you, and teach proper form and techniques for self care and independence as your aches, pains and tightness vanishes or vastly improve.
