The Lyno Method is a non-therapeutic body of knowledge providing a system to identify movement patterns, to restore optimum mobility and support a balanced, flexible and fully functional body. The aim of The Lyno Method is not only to create an awareness of body movements and habitual patterns, but also to guide the client towards neutral movement and more efficient movement patterns.

The results of the FROM Test, the Bunkie test and the Camber Test , the Lyno practitioner is able to work out exactly in which compensation patterns the client moves. These patterns could include a combination of linear, diagonal, spiral and ipsilateral movements of the whole body.

Lyno Method & Tests

FROM Test

The Lyno FROM Test consists of 65 functional and mobility tests.

The FROM Test is designed to give a full record of movement throughout the body and the analysis of this test enables the practitioner to design a program which will include facilitation of movement in restricted areas and conditioning of new balanced movement patterns.

Discrepancies on The FROM Test gives information on compensation patterns, the cause of imbalance and muscle dysfunction. The results of The FROM Test provides the information needed to determine if the body is locked in dysfunctional compensation patterns.

Bunkie Test

The BUNKIE Test shows which myofascial tracks are dysfunctional.

Camber Test

The aim of the Camber test is to determine if the calf can contract through full range of dorsiflexion and plantar-flexion in the neutral ankle position as well as in pronation and supination. The ability to perform this test not only relies on full calf muscle function, but also on neutral function of all the other body slings.

The moment one body sling becomes locked and dysfunctional, the rest of the body is forced to function in a compensation pattern, which will affect the function of the ankle and the muscles in the lower leg.  While performing the test it shows clearly when compensation patterns are present.
