Stretch & Align: Active Isolated Stretch (AIS)
Stretch & Align is a comprehensive stretch therapy that alleviates joint pain and helps you recover from lower back, neck & shoulder pain including sports injury through a series of precise stretching and strengthening exercises.
It is a scientific approach based on the established principles of Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) developed by Registered Kinesiotherapist Aaron Mattes. With Stretch & Align, we work on increasing your flexibility and re-aligning your posture to relieve pain, discomfort, and tightness. Regular sessions will also boost sports performance, whether in tennis, golf, running or paddling, and reduce long term wear and tear from poor postural symmetry.
Due to the fundamental principles of this technique, Stretch & Align is quite gentle and people are only taken to their individual body’s natural barriers, making it suitable for just about anyone, including those rehabilitating, and for those with busy lifestyles, poor posture or mobility.
Preparing for a triathlon or a friendly weekend game of tennis? Condition your body to boost your performance for that physical challenge.
As part of your rehabilitation, focus on making the injured area stronger and more flexible than it was before the injury occurred.
