The last 12 hours of this intensive, hands-on workshop teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol that can be performed on your clients in 50-60-minute sessions for the full body, which is taught by Ben Benjamin, PhD. Active Assisted Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more effective. Active Assisted Stretching is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired.
What sets AAS apart from other stretching routines is it is not overly strenuous to the practitioner and it is easy to learn.
The client actively participates in the stretching process, with a gentle, timed, targeted assist from the therapist at the end of every stretch to increase range of motion along with many other benefits. These techniques are much easier on the therapist’s body than massage and bodywork.
The upper body stretches include the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands.
The lower body stretches include the low back, hip, thigh, knee, lower leg, foot and ankle. To perform the lower body stretches, we recommend investing in a stretching strap of any kind plus a special seat belt to affix the client to the table. These can be purchased at Stretchingusa.com. Similar straps can be found on amazon and other retailers. Feel free to order straps after the training or not at all - the choice is yours!
