Advanced Integration

Our therapists are trained in a variety of modalities that can help clients seeking to improve performance and balance, recover from subacute injuries or pathologies and deal with chronic pain or musculoskeletal issues. One or a combination of the following modalities may be used to best address your body’s specific needs. Tap any name for more information.

  • Active Isolated Stretching
    Open or Close

    Active Isolated Stretching (AIS): is a method of muscle lengthening and fascial release developed over the course of the past 42 years by kinesiologist Aaron Mattes. The AIS method differs from other types of stretching and strengthening programs in several important respects.

    • Specificity: AIS movements are precisely targeted to stretch individual muscles and parts of muscles, rather than larger muscle groups. There are over 170 separate stretches which can be combined to develop customized regimens tailored to the specific needs of any client.
    • Active Initiation: Each AIS stretch is initiated by the client, which helps increase the temperature of the muscles and the fascia to enhance flexibility and create a more efficient stretch.
    • Incremental Assists: The practitioner provides just enough assistance at the end of the client’s active range of motion, to typically add two or three degrees with each repetition.
    • Gentle Motion: Studies confirm that to avoid injury, it is important to use 50% or less of the maximum force for the muscles being stretched. The gentle stretches of AIS are designed to help client’s avoid a defensive mechanism known as the “stretch reflex”. A movement that is overly sudden or severe will cause the muscle being stretched to reflexively contract.
    • Brief Duration: The key to avoiding the “stretch reflex” altogether is to hold a stretch for only a short time--no more than two seconds.
    • Multiple Repetitions: Results are achieved much more quickly by using 6-10 repetitions of shorter stretches. This helps increase the range of motion by as much as 60 degrees in a relatively short period of time.
    • Deep Breathing: This helps to increase the flow of oxygen to the muscles, decrease muscle fatigue, and encourage the release of muscle tension and fascial restrictions.

  • Active Release Technique (ART)
    Open or Close

    Active Release Technique (ART): 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 fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

    How do overuse conditions occur?

    Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

    • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
    • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
    • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

    Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

    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.

  • Kinesio Taping
    Open or Close

    Kinesio Tex Tape is comprised of a polymer elastic strand wrapped by 100% cotton fibers. The cotton fibers allow for evaporation of body moisture and allow for quick drying. There is no latex in the tape. The thickness of the tape is approximately the same as the epidermis of the skin, limiting the body’s perception of weight and after ten or so minutes the patient will generally not perceive there is tape on their skin. The tape usually stays on 3-5 days and even after it has become wet, it will remain effective.

    The Kinesiotape may be used for a wide variety of clinical applications. There are 6 current Corrective Techniques.

    • 1) Mechanical Correction “Recoiling” - tape can be used to assist in the positioning of muscle, fascial tissue, or joint. Functional support can be maintained without losing active range of motion or inhibiting circulation.
    • 2) Fascia Correction “Holding” - to create and/or gather fascia in order to align the tissue.
    • 3) Space Correction “Lifting” - to create more space directly above an area of pain, inflammation, swelling or edema.
    • 4) Ligament/Tendon Correction “Pressure” - to create increased stimulation over a problem area to simulate more normal tissue.
    • 5) Functional Correction “Spring” - used to create a sensory stimulation to either assist or limit a motion.
    • 6) Lymphatic Correction “Channeling” - the tape helps to reduce pressure by acting as a channel to direct excess fluid to the nearest lymph duct.
    • Note: Clients with body hair will need to shave the areas receiving the tape.
