Why have a Dorn Method treatment at Therapy House?
If you suffer from problems such as back pain, sciatica, scoliosis, neck and joint paints, migraines or hip problems, the Dorn Method is a long-established, non-invasive holistic therapy that can help you.
The Dorn Method combines treatments at the hands of our skilled Dorn Method therapist with gentle exercises you can repeat at home. Using the Dorn Method, we aim to relax the muscles that may be pulling your bones out of alignment and gradually restore the correct positioning of your bones and joints, relieving your pain and discomfort.
- Relieves back & joint pain
- Safely stretches, aligns & relaxes the spine
- Uses gentle pressure
- Eases muscular tension
- Low risk & non-invasive
- Long-term benefits
The Dorn method is a gentle, non-manipulative therapy used to correct misalignments in the spinal column and other joints. It is based on the concept that our muscles try to compensate for poorly positioned joints and spines, and our therapist uses motion to relax the tension in these muscles and realign the bones.
The Dorn Method can help to treat issues such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Jaw pain
- Joint problems
- Hip problems
During a treatment, your Dorn Method practitioner will apply pressure with their thumb or hand to the area being treated, while you are asked to enact movements such as swinging your leg or arms. This creates ‘counter pressure’ which allows the misalignment to correct itself without force.
Your practitioner will then teach you exercises you can do yourself to simulate the corrections made during treatment, for ongoing improvement.
Dorn therapy is often combined with Breuss spinal massage.
Your appointment will take approximately an hour.
The number of Dorm Method treatments you need will depend on your individual case; many people find that just one treatment can help but if you have a long-existing condition, you may need several months of therapy, which will include ongoing exercises that you can use at home.
Again, this will depend on your individual case. If, for example, you have an advanced case of scoliosis, the Dorn Method may not reverse any body shape distortion entirely, but it is likely to improve your symptoms, especially if you commit to carrying out the exercises we give you to use at home.
The Dorn Method may not be suitable if you have limited mobility because this therapy works by using the movements of your joints and muscles. However, if you have a third party such as a carer or family member who is able to assist you, the Dorn Method can be an effective therapy for maximising your mobility.
Many people find that the Dorn Method is a gentle and non-invasive way to address a whole host of aches and pains.
