The Dorn-Breuss-Method



back health
This is one of our specialties !!!

Alexandra learned the Dorn Method during her Naturopathic studies in Germany. It is one of the most important manual therapy components Alexandra works with - and people and kids all love it alike. The simplicity and effectiveness of this methods convinces every time. The strong relationship to Acupuncture points and meridians makes this form of therapy the perfect integrative modality for Acupuncture.

The Dorn Method is a form of manual therapy, used to gently correct misalignment in the spinal column and other joints. It was developed in the 1970s by the German lay-healer Dieter Dorn.

The Dorn method is based on the correction of uneven leg length, which, according to Dorn, can be diagnosed in almost every human. Because of that, the pelvis is said to become twisted, and this can result in an asymmetrical, crooked or displaced spinal column.

Corrections of joints or spinal column misalignment are done in a 'dynamic', moving action.The Dorn method therefore uses motion to divert the muscles' tension, and in this relaxed state it is possible to realign the bones.

Misalignment of the spine is treated with gentle pressure using the thumb or hand against the spinous processes, while the patient enacts guided movements such as swinging the leg or arms to distract the muscles' inertia; this is similar to the principle of mechanics known as 'counter pressure'.

Patients often report positive results immediately after treatment. Furthermore patients learn specially designed self-help exercises that simulate the 'corrections' made during the treatment.

The Breuss Massage is a very gentle spinal massage that safely stretches, nourishes, aligns, energizes and is said to heal our back. Often it will be applied before or after a Dorn-Treatment, but both treatments can be used individually as well.

The Breuss Massage will gently stretch your back. We then nourish your spine through the application of fine oils (traditionally used is St. John's Worth Oil that has great healing benefits for our nervous system). Energy healing is applied to finish the whole massage.

This is a unique, very relaxing, totally safe and nourishing massage that will leave the patient less stressed, rejuvenated and more balanced!
