About Thomas 

Thomas Zudrell and the Dorn Method

The "Force" behind the mission to make the DORN Method free accessible and popular worldwide.

Thomas ZudrellThomas Zudrell the person behind this website realized during his time in the Philippines (1995 until 2006) that there was very little Information about the Dorn Method available and basically nothing in english language.

Being a Co-Founder of AWHAI, Academy of Wholistic Healing Arts Inc., a Non Stock Non Profit Corporation in the Philippines and a multi awarded Healing Center and School for Alternative Healing Arts, he decided to not only bring the Dorn Method to the Philippines but teaching it worldwide.

In 2004 Thomas Zudrell started www.dorn-method.com as an international information platform for the Dorn Method and the first english book about the Dorn Method followed soon in 2005 published also in the Philippines.

Back to Germany (since 2006) Thomas Zudrell became the most active international Dorn Method Instructor and Founder of AHHAI, Academy of Holistic Healing Arts international, a sister institution of AWHAI that integrates different complementary medical approaches and coordinates with Medical and Alternative Medical Practitioners as friends around the globe.

Being a founding member of the german DORN association in 2015:
"Deutsche Gesellschaft für die DORN Bewegung e.V.", www.dorn-bewegung.org
he is now the head of the Dorn International department of the DORN Movement (DORN Bewegung).

Thomas Zudrell continues to train people in DORN to the highest standards and is always ready to cooperate with interested people around the world to set up such trainings.

Dieter Dorn receives his copy of the book of Thomas in 2006 during an advanced level training workshop:

Thomas lives following the Motto:

  • The most important deed is always Love

My Chinese star: Tiger (May 1962)

One of my favorite Texts: Desiderata (click to read and listen!)


Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

NOTE: Never try to use the DORN Method on other people without proper training best conducted by an authorized DORN Method Instructor. Although the DORN Method and the Self Help Exercises are very safe if done correctly, the DORN practitioner is not responsible for any consequences resulting from the application during the manual session and Selfhelp exercises. In any case it is advised to consult your doctor first because health problems and back pains may have other causes than misaligned joints and vertebrae and should be checked by a trained medical doctor or other healthcare professional. The DORN Method has certain Limitations that must be cleared prior to any practical application! Remember: The DORN Method is NO Replacement for any other form of medical or non-medical treatment but it can be a very effective complement in an integrative medical system.
