LNTS applies the Tensegrity concept as a new approach to manual therapy centered on the relationship of the whole body with an individual’s interaction with their environment. Based on bio-tensegrity concepts, the method approaches a body comprised of equal forces of tensional compression and distraction. Thus, it must be trained in the same manner in which it exists and certainly during a performance of any movement.
Differing from traditional therapy approaches that treat symptoms and body parts in isolation, LNTS instead examines and treats the global adaptive patterns that develop following injury, trauma, or repetitive movement patterns.
This unique form of therapy derives its foundation from the latest research and clinical findings related to fascia, movement, kinesiology, and proprioception to understand more global concepts related to health and wellness.
Along with physical injury or a disease process, the individual’s response to life’s stresses leads to symptoms and loss of function. LNTS tensegrity principles evaluate and address the whole person; their relationship with their environment creates increased awareness and choices for modified behavior and movement.
