BodyWorks, discovering Active Isolated Stretching with Mike Coffey LMT

A lot of people say that they feel 10 years younger after just one session with me.
How young will you feel?

I have a couple of regular clients in the states right now, so I will have some new openings for a limited time.

I am extensively trained in manual therapy which means I am “hands on” with my clients. This may include massage and joint mobilization and manipulation, as well as muscle stretching which we achieve using a wide variety of techniques. To complement manual skills I sometimes make use of different modalities to reduce pain and inflammation including Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Active Release Techniques (ART) Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) and trigger point therapy is also widely practiced. AIS practitioners are highly trained in exercise prescription and often give clients exercises to do at home to help resolve their conditions.

Whether you're negotiating the uneven sidewalks and streets of Cuenca, bird watching, hiking in the Cajas or an exercise enthusiast or competitive athlete, Active Isolated Stretching can help your training and recovery become more efficient and more fun.

Stretching is an activity that eludes most of us as runners, walkers, and hikers. When I ask my clients, "Have you stretched since I last saw you?" most sheepishly look away and mumble, "Nooo." Stretching is something we all want to do and know it is good for us, yet somehow drop it from our exercise programs.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a technique that helps people maximize the effectiveness of stretching without causing the sort of discomfort that keeps a lot of us away from it.
You may be asking yourself, "What is Active Isolated Stretching?" AIS is a specific stretching program helping both professional and amateur athletes become more agile and less injured.

I've been working in this field since the 90’s I have trained in a wide variety of therapies including Massage Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Bodywork, Reflexology and Active Isolated Stretching. I have spent many years developing an integrated technique and unique philosophy of pain relief.

I also work with an array of conditions including:

• Spinal pain and injuries (e.g. disc prolapse)
• Headaches
• Sports injuries (e.g. ligament tears)
• Fractures (e.g. broken arm)
• Musculoskeletal problems (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)
• Post-surgical rehabilitation (e.g. following a knee replacement)
• Biomechanical problems (e.g. “flat feet”)
• Arthritic conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis)
• Neurological disorders and diseases (e.g. stroke)
• Cardiothoracic conditions (e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders)
• Pediatric conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy)

This is just to name a few.
