“I really enjoyed the course, so practical and logical and easy to facilitate, you can’t help but wonder why you haven’t always done it this way. I have immediately put the Dorn method to work in my practice with great results.”

"I have found the technique helps with almost every client I have! I know I would not have been as successful in helping people without the method you have taught me."

"I would like to thank Brigitte for a Wonderful weekend. Learning the Dorn Method was a Fantastic experience, as a client I found the treatment very effective and liked how powerful it was for something so gentle. As a Therapist I am really excited about Introducing the Dorn Method to my clients as i'm sure it will be life changing for so many of them. The simple self-help techniques complete the Dorn package perfectly to ensure that the effects of the treatment will be long term. I went on the workshop after my Friend had highly recommended it and i'm really glad I did!"

About us
I qualified in Remedial/Sports Massage in Sydney Australia at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies in 2002 and been practising since then. I set up my own business Lucy Bradley clinic in Plymouth UK in 2005 and treat many clients with a number of back, joint and muscular problems. I offer a wide range of treatments such as hot stone remedial massage, reflexology, lymphatic drainage and now The Dorn Method.

How we are using The Dorn Method today and what are the results?
I qualified in the Dorn Method with Brigitte in September 2010 and went on to do the advance with Thomas in February 2011.

I have found the Dorn to be an excellent treatment and have had many successful results. The Dorn works so well with my remedial stone massage as it can gently help to correct imbalances in the body in a very fast and effective way which in some conditions could take many massage treatments. It works very well with clients who suffer from scoliosis, arthritis and spasms in neck and shoulders.

I have really enjoyed learning this technique with Brigitte and then with Thomas and I am so pleased to be able to offer this wonderful treatment to my clients.

Dorn Method Nottingham

Scorpio Clincs Owner: Paul Knowles
Years in practice: 3
About us
I started studying The Dorn Method with Instructor Brigitte Nath at Stratford upon Avon in May 2010 and in February 2011 was happy to complete my Advanced Dorn Method Course with Brigitte and Thomas Zudrell.

Since then I have started my own business Dorn Method Nottingham and have put together a website

Dorn Method Nottingham is totally devoted to promoting The Dorn Method and Breuss Massage Therapies and nothing else. Since qualifying I now work from a local Therapy Centre and our Therapy room at home. My clients range from 5 to 75 years of age and come from all walks of life.

How we are using The Dorn Method today and what are the results?
Most of my clients come to me with Back and Joint Pain. Clients have found that The Dorn Method effectively relieves the pain after just one or two treatments. Other clients have found The Dorn Method has helped them with Depression and has improved their general mental health, some with digestive problems, respiratory problems and I have helped ease tension and pain in a client with the neurological disorder Parkinson’s. Acute pain can often be relieved quickly whereas chronic conditions mostly need more time.

I am currently working to encourage new mums to experience Dorn after going through the traumatic process of childbirth and helping them to bring re-alignment and balance back to their bodies as many experience Back and Joint Pain.

Scorpio Clinics - London, UK

Scorpio Clincs Owner: Sophie Dhenin
Years in practice: over 20
About us
Scorpio has been established for over 20 years and we now occupy three sites and employ 15 therapists. We offer physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture and Western dry needling, pilates, massage and nutritional advice. We pride ourselves in offering not just the more mainstream types of manual therapy but also other techniques not necessarily found in most clinics. These include the Graston Technique, three different types of Western needling techniques (Gunn, NielsenTM, myofascial trigger point release), Scenar therapy, Ko medicine (collateral meridian therapy) – and, of course, Dorn Method.

How we are using The Dorn Method today and what are the results?
I’ve been using Dorn since summer 2009. Of course I don’t use it on every patient who comes through the doors: I select it as only one treatment system from the large arsenal of techniques available to every manual therapist. I find it particularly useful for children, old people and those with osteoporosis, whiplash /road traffic accident victims, and for those who have multiple problems.

For example I am currently treating a 40 year old lady who presented with pain in her left shoulder, right hip, knees, left heel and right hand. When she first came she said she “hurt all over” and that all her joints were stiff. There was no history of trauma: all her symptoms had developed gradually over the previous year. She was hypermobile, had a leg length discrepancy and a sacral torsion. There were scattered areas of segmental restriction throughout her spine but especially at all the junctional areas.

Dorn was the obvious technique to select, along with pilates to increase her body awareness and restore her core stability.

To date she has had five Dorn sessions. When she came in last week one of my colleagues remarked that she seemed to have undergone a personality change. She is much more cheerful, she reports that her general stiffness has disappeared and that most of her symptoms except for the hand pain have massively improved. For my part, each treatment is getting easier: I can restore her leg length equality much more quickly and the segmental restriction is less marked. And it’s nice to have a patient who comes in radiating optimism and happiness where there seemed to be none at the beginning.

The Maple Clinic - Co Dublin, Ireland

Scorpio Clincs Owner: Karen Doyle
Years in practice: 2
About us
The Maple Physical Therapy Clinic opened its doors two years ago and since then has been providing relief to clients from all backgrounds and ages, through use of hand on deep tissue treatments, gentle osteopathic techniques, kinesio taping, Dorn Method, and rehabilitation exercises. The Clinic also works closely with cycle teams providing treatment at training camps and competitions nationally and internationally.

How we are using The Dorn Method today and what are the results?
I have been using Dorn since September 2009, and integrated it straight away into my client treatments after the training course. I found that it compliments Physical Therapy treatments very well and it is particularly useful for clients with neck pain, and those with pain of sacroiliac origin.

I work with a cycle team and have used Dorn techniques to treat neck pain they experienced from the hyper-extended position they adopt while cycling. It gives them relief very quickly and the homecare exercise is excellent to help them continue to get the benefit after my treatment.

It is also very useful in the treatment of acute low back pain of sacroiliac origin. A client who had difficulty walking due to her back pain got immediate relief from a short treatment using only the Dorn Technique, and continued to get further relief from her homecare exercises until the next treatment. At her next treatment she was in a lot less pain which allowed me treat her using both Physical Therapy techniques and the Dorn techniques.
