What is the Dorn Method?
The Dorn Method is a gentle, effective and safe way to correct misalignments of the Spinal Column and other joints, helping relieve back pain, neck pain, headaches, hip, sciatica, jaw, knee, shoulder and many more problem areas.
It is a revolutionary approach to back and joint pain which was developed in Germany around 35 years ago by Dieter Dorn.
Dorn consists of a range of techniques and simple exercises which aim to help joints and vertebrae slip back into their natural positions. In addition, a very gentle spinal back massage is given to safely stretch, align, energize and relax the spine.
The beauty of Dorn lies in its simplicity which can be used to safely correct any imbalances and joints in the body.
It is used to treat not just back pain, but also sciatica, headaches, neck pain and many other related common health problems so prevalent today. Dorn is a very gentle discipline because the therapist works together in harmony with the client, using a ‘dynamic’ approach which enables joints to move easily back into place and restores balance to the body.
It avoids unnecessary stress to muscles and ligaments and involves no jerky manipulation or ‘clicking’ and ‘crunching’ of joints, which so many people fear or dislike.
Treatment begins by focusing on restoring balance to the body to help remove underlying stresses and strains on muscles, joints and ligaments, and to help prevent future problems from occurring.
How it works
One of the key features to Dieter Dorn’s success and his methods effectiveness is its approach to getting joints to move more readily back into their correct natural positions and then stay there.
Rather than forcefully trying to move the vertebrae, The treatment works by cleverly ‘distracting’ muscles whilst corrections are made. This form of dynamic correction is usually readily accepted by our bodies.
Many people report immediate, positive results and require only a few treatments. It is also a true self help treatment, free of unpleasant side effects, completely safe with no medication being required. People who come for treatment are shown very simple tips and techniques to take away with them so they can help themselves to stay pain free.
