Body Rolling and Active Isolated Stretching are two modalities used to help athletes of all ages, seniors , and anyone recovering from injuries or chronic pain.
Specializing in Flexibility and Mobility Training
I am a Certified Personal Trainer, Yamuna® Body Rolling and foot fitness practitioner and Active Isolated Stretching Educator. I am Certified in Plant Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation. There is a commonly accepted belief that as you get older you get stiffer and naturally lose mobility. Over time, the ability to do the things we are accustomed to doing diminishes. I reject this assumption and believe that everyone should be able to achieve his or her best at every age. This is true for athletes as well as the general public. I help people achieve their best through the use of two primary modalities, Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS).
Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) reduces pain, increases flexibility, prevents injuries and improves posture. Body Rolling is a unique fitness system combining deep tissue massage and body alignment. Body Rolling will help you in your recovery from overused muscles, compressed joints and stress resulting from daily living and repetitive motions and is a simple way to address pain.
In Body Rolling routines you are stimulating bones and in the process enable fluid movement throughout your muscles. Body rolling helps to maintain the neuromuscular and skeletal system as your muscles feel better when loose and not tight. Body rolling enables you to increase your range of motion, muscle strength, tone and circulation as muscles are freed from each other, from bone and connective tissue.
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), created by Aaron Mattes a Kinesiotherapist and Licensed Massage Therapist is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, (AIS) provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
Performing an Active Isolated Stretch of no longer than two seconds allows the targeted muscles to optimally lengthen without triggering the protective stretch reflex and subsequent opposite muscle contraction as the isolated muscle achieves a state of relaxation. These stretches provide maximum benefit and can be accomplished without opposing tension or resulting trauma. (AIS) focuses on stretching groups of muscles individually which results in obtaining optimal range of motion.
The application of Body Rolling and Active Isolated Stretching techniques makes you feel great. I’d love to show you how it works. Call me today to schedule an initial session.
