Active Isolated Stretching Course Content:

Learn about a whole-body dynamic technique for stretching muscles and fascia specific to joint movement and along fascial lines.  Based on the principles of Active Isolated Stretching developed by Aaron Mattes, this stretching system restores greater joint mobility, reduces muscular and fascial tension, and dramatically increases blood and lymph circulation for faster healing from injury.  Aaron’s discovery of the time sensitivity of the spindle cells makes this approach unique for stretching muscle and fascia.  This is the unique feature of AIS that sets it apart from all other systems.  Each stretch is held for about 2 seconds to avoid triggering the myotactic stretch reflex.  Repeated, active muscle contractions return restorative blood and lymphatic flow to the body decreasing inflammation and combating disease.  Dysfunctional movement patterns break down quickly and unfavorable postural habits correct themselves.

New to our classes is the expansion of AIS into the realm of Anatomy Trains®.  Applying AIS principles to stretching fascia has shown even more dramatic results than previously realized with AI stretching alone.

Manual Ligament Therapy for the Lower Body (April 25, 2014)
Atlanta School of Massage, Atlanta, GA / Instructor: Joshua Morton

Research has revealed that ligaments are a significant source of muscle pain and dysfunction.  MLT is the only known technique that recognizes and utilizes this fact to its fullest.  With this advantage, MLT is able to resolve both simple and difficult injuries and pathologies, quickly, with little or no discomfort to the recipient or practitioner.

Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) uses the sensory qualities of ligaments to correct muscular and fascial imbalance / dysfunction by nearly eliminating hypertonicity gently and often within seconds. The end result is that clients feel better painlessly and with very little effort on the practitioner’s part.

MLT is a perfect precursor to ANY other treatment modality you enjoy using.  Using MLT as a “primer” before your other work will take you further and faster in helping your clients heal.  Work smarter, not harder and experience the difference.

In this class you will learn a variety of releases for the lower body - the lumbar spine, hips and knees. This class covers all the protocols for these joints to give you an entire set of releases for taking care of your clients. 

This class is designed to be an adjunct to the AIS class that follows on Saturday and Sunday.

Tuition:  $150 early enrollment (on or before April 12th); $175 thereafter; $25 enrolled massage student discount.

Manual Ligament Therapy for Scoliosis (May 30, 2014)
Twin Falls, ID / Instructor: Joshua Morton

Research has revealed that ligaments play a significant role in pain and muscular dysfunction.  Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) is one of the few techniques that utilizes the proprioceptive qualities of ligaments, which register joint instability and muscular tension.  With this advantage, MLT is often able to resolve both simple and difficult injuries and pathologies, quickly, with little or no discomfort to the recipient.

This class is an introduction to Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) as it relates to scoliosis.  Class content includes releases for the spine, shoulders, neck and hips.  You will learn about the physiology behind this technique and gain a new understanding of ligaments and the role they play in muscle and fascial dysfunction.  This is not an in-depth class concerning the entire system but it is a good introduction to the power of the work.  Almost effortlessly you will learn how to create quick change in your clients’ dysfunction that lasts!

Invest in your career and learn how to address the muscular and fascial systems with Manual Ligament Therapy.  Using the proprioceptive sensory qualities of ligaments, MLT relaxes hypertonic muscles immediately with very little effort on the part of the practitioner.  Best of all, it is extremely gentle and painless for the client.

This class is designed to be an adjunct to the AIS class that follows on Saturday and Sunday.
Special Deal: Register for the entire 3-day weekend and receive a $50 discount off the tuition for each class ($100 total discount).

Manual Ligament Therapy for Lower Body (May 31-June 1, 2014)
Bellingham, WA / Instructor: Stephen Wadsworth

Invest in your career and learn how to address the muscular and fascial systems with Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT).  Using the proprioceptive sensory qualities of ligaments, MLT relaxes hypertonic muscles and fascia immediately with very little effort on the part of the practitioner.  Best of all, it is extremely gentle on the client.

Research has revealed ligaments play significant role in pain / dysfunction.  MLT is the one of the few techniques that recognizes this fact, while most other therapies normally address the muscles and tendons.  With this advantage, MLT is often able to resolve both simple and difficult injuries and pathologies, quickly, with little or no discomfort to the recipient. 

Learn about the physiology behind this technique and leave with a good understanding about the role ligaments play in muscle and fascial dysfunction.  This class covers the application of MLT and specific releases targeting the lumbar spine, torso, hips and feet.

Students who attend both an Upper and Lower Body MLT class receive basic certification in Manual Ligament Therapy.

New Auditing Policy: As research in this field develops and public interest and demand for effective stretching techniques grows, we want to make certain that Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is practiced at a high level of expertise.  In this vein, AIS Northwest is dedicated to promoting a more highly trained group of AIS practitioners to meet the needs of the public.  If you have previously taken an AIS seminar sponsored by AIS Northwest, you now have the opportunity to audit a seminar of the same content at no additional cost (course materials not included) provided space is available and prior approval has been obtained from one of the AIS Northwest instructors.

Attention Current Students: In recognition of your special interest in going above and beyond what you are currently learning in your program, AIS Northwest happily extends a special discount of an additional $25/day off any AIS seminar you sign up for. You must be enrolled in a course of study to qualify for this discount. (Note: This offer does not apply to seminars taught by guest instructors or sponsored by other organizations.)

Special Discount: If you have taken one of our "Introduction to AIS" seminars in the past two years, you qualify for a special discount of 25% off the total tuition for one of our other seminars that delve deeper into the material. A manual and strap will not be provided. You will receive an electronic copy of the course manual that you can print out yourself. (Note: This offer does not apply to seminars taught by guest instructors or sponsored by other organizations.)

Auditing a Class for Credit: Former students who are interested in repeating a class for credit at half off the tuition should contact AIS Northwest with their request (phone: 360-738-9800; e-mail: aisnw@comcast.net). In order to receive CE contact hours credit, you will be required to attend a class full-time.
