Active Isolated Stretching

AIS is a gentle form of flexibility and deep muscle strengthening that reduces muscular compensation and balances the overall structure. Dr. Carter specializes in increasing the fitness and integrity of the spinal muscles for a high performance posture. AIS is assisted by the practitioner and can be learned for self-care. Dr. Carter is certified and has been practicing AIS since year 2000.

Tai Chi/Chi Gung

Dr. Carter wrote his doctoral dissertation on "The Efficacy of Tai Chi for the Treatment of Anxiety" and is a certified Master Instructor practicing since 1989. We offer Tai Chi and

Gi Gung for self-care practice, health and meditation. Many studies support the benefits of Tai Chi and Chi Gung for different health conditions as well as general health, longevity and postural integrity.   


The Dr. Jon Sunderledge method of acupuncture was developed in the most successful acupuncture clinic, on many levels, in the world. The results from this system are virtually unheard of in the acupuncture world. Dr. Kelly was first treated from Dr. Jon for a foot fracture that, according to the orthopedic surgeon, required a full leg cast and to screw the foot together. Ten acupuncture treatments and some self care later allowed 100% recovery. Dr Kelly was sold! He studied and consulted with the late Dr. Jon for the next 20 years.

“…Kelly Carter is undoubtedly one of the finest Active Isolated Stretching Practitioners...”
   Aaron L. Mattes, Developer of A.I.S.

 I've been working with Kelly since 2005 and every session I have with him, I learn something new. He is truly a healer of the body. Whether he uses Lifeline Technique, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), or Olympic Weightlifting he will find a way to unlock your body and get it working properly again. He has taught me to not only stretch my body but also strengthen it properly. I can't think of a better gift you can give your body than learning how to keep it limber and strong, and Kelly can teach you these skills. I'm very grateful for all his help and highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning more about the power of their own bodies.
