Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S.)
The Mattes Method is a scientific stretching method developed by Aaron L. Mattes. It is a manual technique that combines a series of short, controlled stretches with intervals of relaxation, which overrides your muscles tendency to contract when stretched tight. If you suffer from neck, back, shoulder, hip or knee pain or stiffness, AIS is a safe solution that offers tremendous relief quickly. When the body starts moving and working properly, pain symptoms often go away. In addition to learning how to stretch for a life-time of physical health, AIS benefits you with increased circulation, reduced risk of injury, improved posture, greater muscle strength, faster healing times, relaxed muscles and increased muscle potential. AIS has been used by thousands of professional and amateur athletes to increase flexibility and performance while reducing the risk of injury.

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.)
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fascistic, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.
What is an ART treatment like?
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
Yoga is the union of breath, body, mind, and soul. The practice comes in many forms. Yoga is suitable for anyone at all fitness levels. Not only will you build strength and flexibility, and also leave with a deeper sense of peace and relaxation.
