Dieter Dorn

Dieter DornDieter Dorn was a sawmill owner who was born in August 1938 in South Germany. Over 35 years ago he injured himself while working and consequently suffered sciatic pain. He asked a local old farmer to help him with his pain using some very basic and practical techniques. Soon after, the old Healer died without having ever given his knowledge to Dieter Dorn who then took on him to figure out the treatment according to what he had experienced and his common sense.

“Dorn’s first patient was his wife who for several years had suffered from severe headaches. According to some doctors, the transverse processes of her cervical vertebrae where too long and could be shortened by surgery but she refused to be operated upon. Dieter Dorn checked his wife’s neck and found that the vertebrae were only twisted and that the x-ray was not a correct reading. He gently pushed the vertebrae back into place and since then her headaches have been history. She has since become the most prominent patient of Dieter Dorn.

That was the beginning of the DORN METHOD!

Soon after, Dieter Dorn helped many people in the neighbourhood by correcting their unequal leg length and aligning their joints. To his surprise many other ailments like knee pains, heart problems, hearing problems and others also seem to have disappeared.

The answer to all this he discovered by coincidence in a book about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where acupuncture and acupressure were among the techniques used to cure many ailments.

During the course of his treatments he observed that he was also addressing the meridians (nerve pathways) along the spine. Because of the connection between the spinal cord and the inner organs connected through the spinal nerve pathways, many problems disappeared when the misaligned vertebrae where corrected.

By meeting and assisting Dr. Thomas Hansen M.D., Dieter Dorn started to lean more about anatomy and physiology, and together, they explored the potentials of this new method for an extended period of time.

Some years later, Dieter Dorn decided that it was time to teach other people this wonderful method, and he started to give seminars. Many learned from him and are now following in his foot steps with equal success.

Today, more and more people from the medical field, like doctors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, non-medical practitioners and chiropractors, attend these seminars and are amazed about what they learn”.
