Healing through the Spine - A simple yet very effective method, the 'Dorn Method'
Dieter Dorn a German farmer and sawmill owner developed the method himself more than thirty years ago. The lay healer since trained many people in this wonderful technique since it takes only a few days (usually 2 to 4) to learn and many are now practicing it with equal success.

The basic principles:
The DORN Method or better said its therapy part is a gentle vertebrae 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.
No medication is needed and no medical training is necessary to use the method successful. It can be learned and mastered easily all you need is sensitive, healthy hands.
A talented lay person can quickly help, in many cases, themselves and those around them, but of course to use the DORN METHOD on a professional level more experience, training and knowledge about anatomy, physiology, physical therapy or massage etc. is necessary!
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 a asymmetrical, crooked or displaced spinal column.
School medicine has very little yet complicated explanations for the causes and persons many end up having operations or walk around with special build up shoes or insoles. The Dorn Method proves that we can have the same leg length every day and your body will thank you for that.
The corrections of joint or spinal cord misalignments is always done in a 'dynamic', a moving action. Our muscles and especially tensed muscles will always try to hold the positions of the joints and spine and when they are out of order the muscles assumes this 'wrong' position as the correct one and hold it there or in some cases even cause the blockage.
A static correction e.g. chiropractic, is difficult since it needs to overcome the strength of the holding muscles and the patient is often quite tense since the treatment is done "on" him and not "with" him.
The Dorn Method uses motion to divert the muscles tension and in this relaxed state it is reasonable easy to re-align the bones. The same principal as when getting sand through a sieve, you need to shake (move) the sieve in order to get the sand through it!
Although the therapeutic pressure, which is actually a counter-pressure from the patient side, is encouraging the bones to shift position in the same way it normally does it naturally, the whole functional unit of bones-ligaments-muscles and other tissues is treated at the same time because of the dynamic situation during this treatment.
The Dorn Method can be called a ‘gentle’ Method and NO harm can be done to the patient because the correction pressure is stopped as soon as any (real or intolerable) Pain arises.
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.

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.
The Dorn Method has certain Limitations that must be cleared prior to any treatment!
Remember: The DORN METHOD is NO Replacement for any other form of medical or non-medical treatment but it can be a very effective supplement!
