Active isolated stretching (AIS) accommodates a number of very important considerations. The body is put in the best anatomical position both to maximize an isolated stretch and to warrant safety. You hold each position for only two to three seconds; then you return to the start position and relax. The stretch is repeated eight to 12 times for optimal results. The benefit of repetitions is to increase blood flow oxygen, and nutrition to the muscle tissues. AIS is designed to aid in the rehabilitation and relief of damaged or diseased muscles.

Medical massage combines several manual therapies, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, acupressure, neuromuscular massage, craniosacral therapy, and manual lymph drainage

Lypossage cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid (Lymph edema) that can create the lumps and bulges we know as figure imbalance.  The deeper Lypossage strokes break up adhesions under the skin that can contribute to the dimpled, uneven appearance of cellulite.  Lypossage also tones the muscles, lifting and firming sagging tissue.  Expected outcomes include dimension loss, structural improvements (posture and carriage), diminished look of cellulite, improved muscle tone, improved skin tone, cleansing of the lymphatic system, and improved circulation.
