Correct Backpain, Sciatica, Scoliosis, Neck and Joint Pains, Migraine, Hip-Problems, etc
Dorn Therapy is a gentle form of manual therapy that guides and restores the body to its natural alignment in the joints, neck and spine.
The therapy originated in Germany thirty five years ago but has its origins in the ancient folk-healing practices of many areas of Europe which can be traced back to the 14th century and beyond.
Dieter Dorn, the owner of a small sawmill in rural Germany, was suffering from severe chronic sciatica which years of medical treatment was not able to cure. He found a local man, a farmer, who still had the old knowledge which had been passed on for generations in that area. The farmer treated Dieter Dorn and the sciatic pain was gone!
Dieter was fascinated and began to learn the technique from the farmer. Sadly, the farmer died and Dieter Dorn knew that he had to collect and preserve this knowledge before it was lost. Fortunately, he was able to do just that and it came to be known as Dorn Therapy.
It is now used in German hospitals and is practiced across Europe and worldwide. There is even a yearly Dorn Congress in Switzerland!
Of special interest to Dorn practitioners is the length of the legs. Often, one leg is slightly longer than the other and this produces a chain of effects throughout the body, beginning with a tilted pelvis and ending in faulty posture. This alters the body’s centre of gravity and the body compensates with a range of painful adjustments, causing headaches, hip pain, to sciatica and severe muscle and joint pain.
Simply by using gentle finger pressure, the therapist is able to relieve any discomfort or chronic pain experienced by clients. Conditions of pains and aches of the physical body especially the back, neck and joints are immediately relieved to a great extent.
Depending on the person’s condition, 1 to 3 sessions may be required to restore the body to its natural posture.
Conditions that can be treated using Dorn therapy include:
protruding or prolapsed discs
arthritis of any joint
differences in leg length
any kind of pain in the spinal column
pain in the neck or shoulders
chronic inner conditions such as asthma or angina
blockages in the flow of Chi

Terry McCarthy is a Dorn Therapy practitioner. He learnt the technique from Barbara Simon, a German therapist who was a student of Dieter Dorn, the founder.
Terry has been doing bodywork since the 1970’s and has undergone training for various techniques such as Alexander technique, positional release therapy, myofacial therapy, trigger point therapy, Bowen technique and Rolfing.
“I went to try out Dorn therapy for my shoulder ache, and numbness in the hands and feet. On the first session, Terry checked my posture and told me that I was not standing straight and because of that, some nerves were pinched in my chest & shoulder area. Major muscles on my hip, legs and thighs were also inflamed and strained. After the 1st session, my shoulder discomfort reduced tremendously and some part of the hips, legs and thighs were also released. On the second morning, the numbness at my right leg is no longer there. By the second session, I could feel myself standing straight without the usual slouch. Throughout the therapy , Terry was friendly and communicative explaining what he was going to do on me from time to time. He was also gentle in his approach.” – BL
“Within 10 seconds, Terry had found the origin of my sciatica – something that had eluded medical professionals for over 6 years. After the first treatment, my right thigh, which had been locked rigid as a secondary symptom for all this time had relaxed by 50%. By the morning it was as if there had never been a problem. I was so impressed that I flew from Thailand to Kuala Lumpur to get another couple of treatments. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with Terry’s gift for healing. I had not been able to sit down pain-free for over 6 years but after three treatments I am sitting in more comfort than I could ever imagine. Thanks Terry!” – Nick Diblik, UK
“I got into a motorcycle accident but luckily Terry was there to help me back onto my feet quickly. I had a fractured knee cap, with heavily damaged muscles and ligaments. My Scaphoid bone (in the wrist) had a split fracture, so I had to go through a Herbert screw fixation surgery. I did not go through any physiotherapy, although Terry gave me treatments regularly. It is very difficult for me to explain what Terry did to me when people ask, but I enjoy saying that I think he truly has a magical touch. Both doctors for my wrist and knee were astounded to see how quickly I recovered. I’m presently very active and doing things which others, who have had similar knee injuries are incapable of. I may never thank you enough Terry for giving me the privilege of being treated by you. Thank you for sharing your true gift and wisdom with us all.” – Seb Payne, Canada
