A gentle and safe therapy for back, neck and joint pain
What is “The Dorn Method”?
The Dorn Method is a manual complementary therapy discovered by Dieter Dorn around 40 years ago. Dorn is a manual complemenary therapy that is used to address back, neck and joint pain. Today Dorn is gradually spreading throughout the world. It is widely used in Germany, where it originated and has been here in the UK for around 10years.
The Therapy is very gentle and safe and aims to realign the spine and other
joints into their correct positions. Dorn uses the dynamic movement of the
client working together with the therapist who uses gentle thumb or hand
pressure to ease joints back into place. This approach is unique and does
not cause undue stress to the client’s soft tissues or joints. Unlike other
therapies which employ manipulation, there are no sudden jerky
movements, crunching or clicking that some clients dislike.
Your Dorn Method session usually finishes with a “Breuss” massage. Unlike
conventional massage, this massage is carried out along the spine. This
complements the corrections performed previously and helps to relax, nourish
and invigorate the spine.
Bowen Technique and Dorn Method in combination
For some clients, it has been found that using both Bowen and Dorn in the same
treatment session is a very effective combination. Clients with back and neck problems and issues
like sciatica, for example, seem to respond very well and usually quite quickly when
treated with these two therapies. Bowen moves are done first then followed by the
appropriate Dorn moves.
Bowen is very effective for helping muscles, tendons and fascia to relax and soften thus
allowing any misaligned vertebrae to slip easily back into place using the gentle
corrections of Dorn. All the usual after care advice is the same and in particular, it is
recommended to take it easy for a few days and not do any sport or over exert oneself.
A session using this combination of therapies takes a little longer, allow approximately
1.5 hours . For pricing, click here.
