Dorn Spinal Therapy
Dorn Spinal Therapy is a gently, manual method of physical therapy used to correct posture and spinal alignment without manipulation.
Originating in Germany this treatment is used for many kinds of back and joint problems and is very effective in treating headaches.
The technique is applied during motion, meaning that the muscle tension of a resting body can be avoided. Only a small amount of pressure needs to be applied to move the joint into the right position while the moving limb on the opposite side functions as a safety barrier.
To make this method work the client is asked to do specially designed self-help exercises. These are simple and already familiar as they are based on the treatment movements performed by the practitioner, and they ensure the corrective process.
The number of treatments needed depends on the response of the individual. On average three treatments give the needed benefit. An acute problem can sometimes be resolved in one session while chronic pain may need several treatments to achieve a positive outcome.
Uschi is a highly experienced and respected Massage Therapist who specialises in the Dorn Spinal Therapy Method.
