The Dorn Method or better said its therapy part is a gentle vertebra and joint treatment. It can be helpful for treating illnesses directly or indirectly connected to the spinal column. It is completely safe but still very effective.

Our skeleton should be symmetrical, harmonic and in a static-dynamic alignment equilibrium. When we 'upset' this 'bone order' then our joints may be moved out of place especially in the spine. 

The results of long-term 'bone dislocations' are as diverse as there are names for illnesses today. When the skeleton is re-aligned people often feel better fast and symptoms of illness can disappear or abate.

The Dorn Method is based on the correction of uneven leg length which can be diagnosed in almost every human today. Because of that the pelvis becomes twisted, or the twisted pelvis causes this functional leg length discrepancy, and this often results in an asymmetrical, crooked or displaced spinal column. The method is based on natural laws of physics and anatomy and combines TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Principals/Knowledge with Western techniques and principals and has produced great results over many years now.


Positive results are often immediately achieved and with some easy exercises, that the patient does after the treatment, the Dorn Method can bring long-lasting relief. Dorn Method is often combined with Breuss massage for better results.

The Dorn Method can help with many problems:​
  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Elbow pain

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Headaches

  • Migraines

  • Hip/knee/ankle problems

  • Jaw problems

  • Shoulder problems

  • Sciatica

  • Scoliosis

  • Tinnitus

  • Different leg length

  • Maintenance and prevention treatments

How many treatments are recommended?

There is no standard number of treatments and in many cases, one treatment can already help. Generally, up to three treatments are recommended and in long-existing conditions, several months of therapy might be necessary so it is best to learn the method and apply it on oneself or family.


Effectiveness depends on the patient self-help discipline (practising self-help exercises), given by the therapist. The first 6 to 8 weeks are very important to stabilize the improved structural alignment and further enhance it.
