We Understand You've Probably Got A Few Questions.
The Lyno Method
Does Lyno work for acute injuries?
The Lyno Method was developed to find a solution for chronic and recurring injuries. If your acute injury appeared spontaneously and without a traumatic event, Lyno might reveal why you got injured and remove the cause, which will speed up the healing process.
Will Lyno help for arthritis?
Arthritis which is caused by repetitive strain on specific joints, will respond well to Lyno. We do a full body assessment to find the areas where we need to release the fascia which is causing strain on the joints.
Is it safe to have Lyno after surgery?
Yes, as soon as the surgeon confirms that you can be active again, we can start the releases.
Will Children benefit from Lyno?
Children respond very quickly to Lyno as their dysfunctional patterns are not so deeply ingrained and their fascia responds much easier to the technique.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of sessions required differs from client to client. We all have a different timeline of traumatic events, which includes both physical and emotional trauma. We always book 3 sessions in the first 2 weeks. From there we space the sessions by adding an extra week in between each session. Our aim is to get our clients independent as soon as possible.
Will Lyno take my injury away forever?
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.
Is the Lyno technique painful?
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.
Can Lyno improve my posture?
Bad posture is a symptom of limited movement. As soon as your movements become restricted, it will reflect on your posture. our full assessment will show up all the limitations in movement and will allow us to restore your posture.
Does Lyno have an effect on old emotional trauma?
Yes, all trauma is stored in the body and show up as limitations in movement. When we facilitate the release of immobile fascia due to previous emotional trauma, the client often experiences a notable emotional release.
The Lyno Academy
Can I use the Lyno technique as an extra tool in my toolbox?
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.
How will the Lyno course benefit a personal trainer?
If you plan a strength programme for a client who has limited mobility, you might encourage injuries or non-alignment. If a personal trainer is able to restore the alignment and function before the client starts with strength work, there is a better chance of reaching an optimum result without getting injured.
How can Yoga instructors benefit by doing the Lyno course?
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.
Does Lyno treat pathology?
Lyno is focused on fascia mobility and our main purpose is to restore free 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.
Who may register for the Lyno course?
The course is suitable for anyone working in the field of movement, physical therapy, massage and trauma.
Do I need an anatomy background to register for the Lyno course?
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.
What is the duration of the Lyno course?
The full course up to the certification exam takes 6 months to complete. The online course takes at least 8 months to complete.
Is the Lyno app compatible with all mobile/cell phones?
No, unfortunately it does not work with phones who are not registered with AppStore or Google Play Store. Some cheaper phones also do not have the correct specs to work the goniometer on the app. Please contact us if you want to make sure if your phone will work.
How do I become a certified Lyno practitioner?
To become a certified Lyno practitioner students have to complete all 4 modules, including the required practical work, and pass the certification exams.
What is the format of the Lyno Certification Exam?
During the exam the student will be required to perform a full Lyno session on a model. 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 apply the technique.
