Dorn Therapy

Dorn Therapy or Dorn Spinal Therapy is a therapy that is very gentle, safe and non- manipulative method that corrects misalignments of the spine and other joints of the body. This is performed through self-determined movements of the patient and guidance of the therapist. This method relieves pain and any imbalance in the joints, pelvic, back, neck area and other health problems connected to the effects of misalignments.

The session will be conducted by Kathy, who will access and check for imbalances which may have occurred. The basics of Dorn Therapy starts by firstly assessing the length of your legs as many back and neck problems arise from having different leg lengths. Any differences in leg length will be corrected by balancing the hip, knee and ankle joint. 

This is followed by Kathy, looking for any deviations in the sacroiliac area and correcting any imbalances that may have occurred. Movement forms the basis of Dorn Therapy, where all corrections occur in dynamics. Thus, as Kathy gently applies pressure with her hand on one side of your pelvis, you the client will swing the opposite leg backwards and forwards. This process allows the joints and vertebrae to move back into their correct position naturally, re-aligning your pelvis.

The same procedure occurs along the spine as Kathy checks the lower, middle and upper back, and finally the neck. You the client swing the opposite leg or arm backwards and forwards or move your head from side-to-side, depending on which area of the spine is being balanced.

The therapy is completed with a very relaxing and gentle Spinal Stretch Massage that will nurture, stretch and ease the tension from your spine. You will also receive a set of self-help exercises to do at home that will form an integral part of your maintenance program, assisting with the improvement of your spinal correction and at the same time strengthening and supporting your spine.
