THE LYNO METHOD

We Understand You've Probably Got A Few Questions.

The Lyno Method

The Lyno Method was developed to find a solution for injuries that keep returning without a real reason. If your acute injury appeared for no real reason, Lyno® might reveal why you got injured and remove the cause, which will speed up the healing process.

Arthritis caused by repetitive strain on specific joints, will respond well to Lyno®, as we remove the pattern that is causing the strain. In other words, we remove the cause of the arthritis.

It depends on the type of surgery. We only use the technique on scars older than 6 weeks. However, as Lyno® is not symptom-based, we work on the area which was the cause of the original pain or condition, and therefor not in the area of the surgery. Note that we can only apply Lyno® post-operative once the doctor indicates that you may move the area.

Children respond very quickly to Lyno® as their dysfunctional patterns are not so deeply ingrained and their fascia responds much easier to the technique.

The number of sessions required differs from client to client. Every time you get injured or have surgery, the body compensates and avoids movement in the injured area. When we do the full body assessment, it soon becomes clear if the client has many compensation patterns, as movement will be impaired in many different areas. On average it takes 3 sessions to remove the most obvious patterns and to bring the body back to alignment. It however takes a minimum of 12 weeks of strengthening and focus on the newly restored movement patterns in order to maintain the results. During this time, we prefer to see the client at 2-4 week intervals to ensure that they do not return to old habitual movement patterns.

Lyno® is not a quick fix! It is a team effort between the practitioner and the client to break bad habits and dysfunctional movement patterns, and then to continue the effort until the new patterns become the natural patterns. As soon as this is achieved, the injury will not return.

While most fascia techniques aim to manually release fascia, Lyno® uses a gentle superficial non-invasive but dynamic technique, aimed at the neural system in order to restore fascia mobility. Be prepared for a lot of active movement during the session to activate new patterns.

Bad posture is a symptom of bad movement. The body ‘locks up’ in these bad movement patterns and your posture will reflect that. With Lyno® we assess your whole body and find exactly where your movement is restricted. As soon as these restrictions are removed, muscles are able to function properly again, which results in better posture.

The Lyno Academy

The Lyno Method is based on a full body assessment. You can only call it Lyno® if you have done a full assessment. If you use our technique to release fascia, without performing the full assessment, it becomes fascia release and not Lyno®.

If you plan a strength programme for a client who is stuck in compensation patterns, you might encourage injuries or non-alignment. By doing the full assessment before you start their programme, and are able to release these patterns prior to exercise, you will not only prevent injuries, but also achieve better results.

Many clients remark that they avoid certain positions in yoga due to pain or stiffness. By focusing only on the poses that are comfortable to them, certain parts of the body become overstretched, while other areas remain stiff and immobile. This results in non-alignment and causes unnecessary strain on joints and muscles. Just like with any other form of exercise, it is of the utmost importance to restore natural functional movement prior to exercise in order to prevent injuries.

Lyno® is based on fascia mobility and our main purpose is to restore natural movement. Chronic strain on the body leads to pathological changes. Only once the strain is removed, can the body respond with self-healing. In Lyno® we do not focus on the areas with pathology, but on the cause of the pathology.

The course is suitable for anyone working in the field of movement and who encounters clients with recurring sport injuries.

It is advantageous to have previous knowledge of anatomy but the Lyno® course material provides sufficient information. Prior to each module students are provided with the muscle anatomy relevant to the forthcoming course.

The full course up to the certification exam takes 6 months to complete.

After the 1st and 2nd modules, students are expected to apply their newly gained knowledge by completing 16 hours of practical work. This is best achieved by seeing 4 subjects once a week for 4 weeks. Please note that students may not be paid for these sessions. After the 3rd module, students are required to do another 50 case study hours in order to qualify for the exam.

To become a certified Lyno practitioner students have to complete all 4 modules, including the required practical work, and pass the certification exam.

During the exam the student will be required to perform a Lyno® session on a model provided by the examiner. The examiner must be satisfied that the student has sufficient knowledge and ability to complete the FROM tests, to logically translate the test information into a treatment plan and to effectively perform the manual technique of Lyno®.
