Meet Al Meo: Active Isolated Stretch Therapist

When Al was working on his massage certification, he had the opportunity to receive a copy of the manuals for an interesting technique known as Active Isolated Stretch therapy (AIS). After working on the techniques himself, he was amazed at how much better he felt, and the difference the therapy had made in his day to day life, so he decided to obtain an advanced certification in the therapy.

26 years later, he continues to practice the therapy himself and is able to help Batavia Back & Neck, Ltd. patients overcome injuries, hold adjustments better, and get back to living the life that they love without pain and discomfort.

In addition to AIS therapy, Al is also certified in evidence-based Barefoot training, a therapy designed to correct postural imbalances in the feet.

Motivation and Focused Care

Al believes in not only educating his patients on what they can do to continue to improve while at home, but he motivates them and encourages them every step of the way to take control of their health and wellness, naturally. When you visit Al for an appointment, he’ll get to know you and your injury, diving deep to uncover what’s really going on in your body and tailoring your sessions to what your body needs.

Outside of the Practice

When he isn’t helping people heal naturally in the practice, Al enjoys spending time outdoors, walking his dog Mason (who happens to be a trained therapy dog), gardening, and getting together with neighbors for a weekly wine night. Al and his wife, Catherine, also love to garden, enjoy great food and read.
