The Dorn method is a form of manual, holistic alternative therapy used to correct misalignments in the spinal column and other joints.
In its theoretical approach, it is somewhat related to chiropractic and osteopathy, although it is different in its practical application.
It was developed in the 1970`s by the German healer Dieter Dorn. The Dorn method is based on the correction of uneven leg length; because of that the pelvis is said to become twisted and this can result in an asymmetrical, crooked or displaced spinal column.
Dorn uses a non-manipulative approach to correct such problems, this method uses the motion of the patient and the light thumb pressure of the practitioner to divert muscles tension and in this relaxed state it is apparently possible to realign the bones.
The Breuss massage
This massage is named after Rudolph Breuss from Austria.
The Breuss massage is supporting the healing effect of the Dorn therapy from an energetic level. It is an energetic massage on the back, especially on both sides of the spinal column, using special oil with “hypericum” and finishes with a layer of thin paper on the back.
It has the effect that the spine will be stretched and the discs will get more space for regeneration. The oil helps detoxifying and at same time calming the nerves. This massage is done very slowly and softly, with very little pressure, so that it brings the patient into a deep and immediate relaxation, it is done to prepare the Dorn method or after the Dorn treatment for relaxation
