Intro to Active Isolated Stretching Classes

 

We are now adding Intro to Active Isolated Stretching Classes for those who want to comtemplate certification.

These are exerpts from my upcoming Active Isolated Stretching Classes as written by creator Aaron Mattes. These methods are not only good for athletes but also for the everyday person.  It enhances the quality of your life in every activity.

Athletic Performance:

The efficiency, precision, and freedom with which the athlete is able to move will help regulate athletic performance.  Efficiency is dependent upon training and conditioning.  Facilitated stretching allows for more intense treaining.  Restrictions from pain, spasms, and tension inhibit freedom of movement.  Without freedom of movement, precision is adversely affected.  The Mattes Method with Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) reduces many of these restrictions.

Some beneficial effects of the Mattes Method are:

1.  Active Isolated Stretching improves oxygenation and nutrition of myofascial structures promoting growth and repair.

2.  Active Isolated Stretching stimulates the circulation and drainage of lymph, which helps eliminate metabolic wastes.

3.  Active Isolated Stretching improves flexibility and health of muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

4.  Active Isolated Stretching breaks down the friction and "gluing" among fascial sheathes.

5.  Active Isolated Stretching separates fibrosis and breaks down adhesions that may result from trauma or inflammation.

6.  Active Isolated Stretching realigns collagen fibers.

7.  Active Isolated Stretching reduces muscle spasm.

8.  Active Isolated Stretching reduces the risk  of muscle strain and tear.

Benefits of an Optimal Flexibility Program

1.  Athletes reach peak performance sooner and sustain it longer.

2.  Muscles respond more quickly and powerfully.

3.  Performance is improved with reduced chance of injury.

4.  Muscle stiffness is reduced as excess lactic acid buildup is removed.  Reduction is metabloic wastes allow muscles to rejuvenate quicker after intense workouts or athletic events.

5.  Athletes recuperate more quickly.  Healing of injuries is faster and stronger without the loss of power due to the development of transverse fibrosis.

6.  Reduction in spasms, splinting, and tension as a result of ischemia.

7.  Athletes increase their career span and level of performance.

 

Lypossage

Why do I have cellulite, lumps, and bulges?

The fatty tissue of your body acts as its "toxic waste disposal site," where substances that it cannot metabolize are dumped. This congested tissue has poor circulation (you'll note that cellulite prone areas are cool to the touch).  Lymphatic flow may also be restricted by tight undergarments and pantyhose.

How does it work and is it safe?

Lypossage cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid (Lymphoedema) that can create the lumps and bulges we know as figure imbalance.  The deeper Lypossage strokes break up adhesions under the skin that can contribute to the dimpled, uneven appearance of cellulite. Lypossage also tones the muscles, lifting and firming sagging tissue.

Is it safe?

Lypossage is a non-invasive, natural health treatment that helps to cleanse the body of toxins and retained fluids.  Most clients find that Lypossage enhances their energy and mental clarity.  While there are some contraindications for specific medical conditions, Lypossage can be safely experienced by most healthy individuals.  AIt is much safer than surgical procedures such as liposuction.  However, for those who opt for more dramatic surgical result, Lypossage can be very beneficial before and after the liposuction procedure.

Who can perform my Lypossage treatments?

Lypotherapist are specially trained massage and body professional who have learned this extraordinary hands-on or machine bases technique and are certified to practice under the Lypossage name.

What are some typical results, and how will I know what mine are?

While results vary, cumulative dimension loss over five key measurement points averaged 6.75 inches in the original study.  It is not uncommon to find cumulative inch loss of up to 11 inches. One client in the study lost almost 8 inches in her waist measurement alone.  Most women find that they will drop on or two dress sizes without a reduction in their weight.  Your Lypotherapist will weigh, photograph and measure you before you begin your program and at key intervals of the program to enable you to track your progress.

If you have any questions, please contact us for a free consultation.  This blog is taken from the Lypossage manual to educate you on the benefits of Lypossage.

Massage: Luxury or Necessity

Do the benifits of massage therapy really outweigh the cost?

Well we think so! Not sure if you agree, or not really sure you have enough information to answer that question? We have provided the following information, so that you will be able to answer that question for yourself and find out if you end up seeing the benefits we do.

Mental and emotional well-being is directly connected to physical well-being. It is known that stress lowers the body's immune system response, making you an open target for common illness such as a cold or flu. High levels of stress can cause the development of an illness, even more so for people who experience high levels of stress for long periods of time. Emotional and mental stress can also weaken a body's defense against far more seious diseases and complications.

Chronic pain is one of the most common medical conditions that cause people to turn to massage. However, the various health conditions that benefit from massage is simply outstanding. Joint and muscle pain, emotional and mental disorders, respiratory problems, cancer, chronic migraines, IBS, and diabetes are only a few of the medical conditions that benefit from massage therapy.

Massages are not just a luxury anymore, they are a necessity.
