Dorn Method vs Therapy 

The Dorn Method vs Dorn Therapy

A Yes to Self Responsibility and a No to Back Pain

A holistic, effective, safe and Non-manipulative approach to correct imbalance in the spine and joint-structrure and a True Self Help Method!

Note: Dorn Therapy is NOT the same as Dorn Method!

A method is not a therapy!

Dieter Dorn the founder of this method developed it as a true self help method which is much more than a mere form of therapy.

Excerpt Wikipedia: Method (Ancient Greek: μέθοδος, methodos) literally means a pursuit of knowledge, investigation, mode of prosecuting such inquiry, or system. In recent centuries it more often means a prescribed process for completing a task.

Methods are found in daily practice as well as in science, philosophy and art. In the closer sense a method is a path taken to acquire knowledge and awareness!

The method of Dieter Dorn, the "DORN Method" in its original meaning is not a form of therapy.

This would only be the case if therapeutically applied techniques were used in a medically targeted way to treat diseases.
In such cases the term Dorn therapy could be used.

Dorn therapists often regard the DORN Method as medical manual therapy and focus on the manual application rather than the holistic selfhelp coaching of their patients in mind. This is somehow quite sad but one has to realize: A registered lizensed therapy could limit the use of the DORN Method to a regulated group of people that then no longer would need to be afraid of competitors from the non medical community.
And still it would be good if the Dorn therapy finds its way into conventional medicine in a somewhat integrative medicine approach, if accepted as such. There is already a Dorn therapist association registerd in germany and led by a group of medical practitioners around Jens Koch: „Internationale Gesellschaft für medizinische Dorn-Therapie e.V.“,

The application of DORN in the sense of the method of Dieter Dorn is a help for self-help, where also non-medically trained laymen can help people to promote their holistic balance in self-responsibility.

The manual work of this application with a client represents only a part of the method and serves exclusively to point out possible im-balances and to demonstrate the possibilities of self-regulation through self-help exercises carried out on one's own responsibility.

Exactly how this is to be done is explained, demonstrated and taught by the german DORN association (The DORN movement), "Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Dorn Bewegung e.V.", and as non profit association officially registerd. ( and all approved DORN Instructors in their training courses.

The DORN movement wants that DORN in the sense of Dieter Dorn's method can be used by everyone and is not degraded to a form of therapy which then may only be used by a limited group of people!

Which terms may be used when and how, may be, legally regarded, reason for discussion but is, however, not relevant with the practical work.
DORN applied in the sense of Dieter Dorn is not a, possibly dangerous, medical treatment since no manipulative techniques are used but only the self-regulation of the body is promoted!
This happens through self-help exercises carried out on one's own responsibility, the mechanisms and techniques of which are only demonstrated and taught in every DORN application.

For this reason it is not understandable why only medically trained persons, who are authorized to practice medicine, and not also talented laymen, as Dieter Dorn himself was, should apply the Dorn Method.

The term DORN Method comes from the developer Dieter Dorn and it is not the right (copyright) of any other person, institution or authority to twist the actual meaning of the term and to declare the DORN-Method as a method for medical treatment. The term DORN Method in its origin is a help for self-help method according to Dieter Dorn.

The term Dorn therapy should not be used by non-medical practitioners or laymen to avoid confusion and uncertainty in the public.

The term DORN method should not be used by non-medical practitioners or laymen without further explanation that DORN is a selfhelp method, to avoid confusion and uncertainty in the public.

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.
