Holistic Dorn Therapy: Gentle Treatment for Back and Joint Pain with Individual Assessment and Targeted Correction - Natural Healing Practice TEN St.Gallen Hinterberg

Dorn therapy is a holistic treatment method rooted in manual medicine, pioneered by Dieter Dorn in Germany during the 1970s. It is based on the idea that many physical ailments stem from misalignments in the spine and joints.


At the core of Dorn therapy lies the manual correction of vertebral and joint misalignments, achieved through gentle movements and pressure techniques. The therapist works with their hands, often incorporating specific movements by the patient to realign vertebrae and joints to their natural position.


A fundamental aspect of Dorn therapy is the consideration of the entire body as a unified entity. Frequently, discomfort in one area of the body is the consequence of misalignments or blockages elsewhere. By rectifying these imbalances, pain can be alleviated, and the body's natural function restored.


Dorn therapy can address a variety of complaints, including back pain, neck and head pain, joint issues, disc problems, and even internal organ discomfort caused by spinal misalignments.


A typical session at the Nature Healing Practice TEN St.Gallen Hinterberg commences with a comprehensive anamnesis, during which the therapist evaluates the patient's individual complaints and medical history. Subsequently, the spine and joints are examined for misalignments and treated accordingly.


Dorn therapy is a gentle and non-invasive treatment method, typically well-tolerated by patients. It can be used preventatively or therapeutically and is often integrated into a holistic treatment plan that includes nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle considerations.

However, it's important to note that Dorn therapy may not be suitable for everyone and can be contraindicated in certain cases, such as acute injuries, advanced spinal conditions, or specific neurological disorders
