The last half of this hands-on workshop teaches you an intensive, effective stretching protocol for the upper 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.
