This is a nice book. It is a little over my head as far as the references to names of the body's anatomy but still able to be used by the common person for stretching. The explanations of how to do the stretches are complete but not in the best order in my opinion. The Method is explained and then in the notes, you are told additional information about the method. I think it would have been better to include all the information in one place and in the order that you need to do it. It is more like someone talking to you while you try it and then reminding you to do something. But all in all I think it is a good book and the theory behind the exercises makes sense. Since I just received it, time will tell whether or not this helps neck pain that I have had for about 6 years. The spiral bind is nice for laying the book flat as you read it.

After taking a short AIS workshop, then going back to my office to use these stretches with my clients; my clientele has increased and success levels are up. I have also very much benefited from Aaron Mattes' system, which is what really gave me the inspiration and creative tools to infuse with the bodywork I have been doing the last 16+ years.

Aaron Mattes' Active Isolated Stretching is the book we have been waiting for! Incredibly user-friendly with a vast wealth of knowledge, making self-care & client care accessible to all! Aaron Mattes' newest book (Nov 2012) will enhance even more lives with its clarity - a Masterpiece!

I love how thorough the descriptions are for the therapist (which is the 2nd half of the book), and also that the first half of the book is purely for self-care! There is a reason Aaron Mattes is in The Massage Therapy Hall of Fame!
