Dorn Therapy

Dorn Therapy

"One only dies once, and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost and will not present itself again." - José Rizal, Letter to Mariano Ponce

The Dorn method is a form of manual, holistic alternative therapy used to correct claimed misalignments in the spinal column and other joints and is based on the correction of uneven leg length.

It uses a non-manipulative approach to correct such problems. Corrections of joint or spinal cord misalignments 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 apparently possible to realign the bones.

During a treatment, the practitioner palpates the patient's spine. If any 'unbalanced' areas are found, possible underlying misalignments are 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'.
