Human movement is more enjoyable when the body is flexible and capable of performing without restriction. Stretching techniques should be included in everyones daily schedule and it should be a painless process to help improve the quality of life. Aaron L.Mattes has dedicated almost 40 years developing and perfecting his method of ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING to improve people's lives, their health and their ability to become more flexible. Flexibility is possibly the most important factor in the longevity of an athlete and is key in the prevention and recovery of sports injuries.

Active Isolated Stretching ( A.I.S.) incorporates a key concept,which states that only relaxed myofascial structures will allow themselves to be optimally stretched. Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S.) utilizes a gradual stretch of no greater then 2.0 seconds to a specific isolated muscle which can promote a full range of motion and flexibility without activating antagonistic muscle group contraction. 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 (A.I.S) is a vital component of injury prevention, rehabilitation,sports training and performance, longevity enhancement and in general a healthier lifestyle.
