Active Isolated Stretching/ Strengthening (AISS) is a complete form of bodywork that has been in development by Kinesiologist Arron L Mattes for the past 30 years. It is the most effective and specific form of stretching and muscle activation in the bodywork world. At our clinic, Thomas specializes in Orthopedic massage and AISS. In 2012, he received permission from Aaron Mattes, the founder of the Active Isolated Stretching/ Strengthening technique, to teach AISS to the massage community as continuing education.
