Dieter Dorn a true healer passed away

Last January 19th, 2011 a dear friend and true healer Dieter Dorn decided to make his final journey.

After a period of suffering that started mid 2010 with a mild stroke his body finally could no longer stand against cancer that was discovered during his stroke treatment.

He was put to rest in his hometown on the 22nd, January 2011 and the ceremony was attended by many relatives and friends.

The reflections about his life presented by friends touched every present person deeply and made clear that the movement he started named after himself, the Dorn Method, will not stop with his passing but surely continues to bring his healing spirit to the world.

Although already a celebrity whenever he attended events about the Dorn Method like the Dorn Congress he stayed a humble and simple man that never stopped working for others and sharing his experience and passion for balance.

His latest personal experience and research about using music and sounds to positively influence the re-alignment of our spine and body showed again how deep his intuitive understanding of the human resonance was.

Dieter Dorn always supported the integration of different ways and ‘Methods’ to achieve better balance in life and realized that it all needs to start from the ‘inside’.

Although he did not promote the Method that carries his name as therapy but as Self Help Method, it developed into a much greater thing than anybody had expected and the two, Dorn Method and Dorn Therapy, used either as Self Help Method or as a combination of Self Help Coaching and Therapy are now practiced by an ever increasing amount of people all over the world.

Dieter Dorn had a very relaxed attitude towards his fellow human beings who apply the Dorn Method in ways that are quite far away from the original ideas and he said that life will surely find its way to separate the good from the bad.

The sad situation that people bring in their own personal preferences, beliefs, likes and dislikes when practicing the Dorn Therapy Method and often express unbalanced and even aggressive behavior never influenced Dieter Dorn to participate in such situations and he suggested that fair communication always must be supported and will help to balance the energies.

We will miss you Dieter...

A personal note: Dieter Dorn and the Method that he promoted changed my life completely and I cannot express how much I feel gratitude for this.

I will continue to spread the message from Dieter Dorn through my teaching work worldwide and information platforms like

I will also continue to support the international DORN movement and the non-profit association: "Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Dorn Bewegung e.V.", ( with my role as head of DORN international department, and we hope to find many people worldwide that appreciate the idea of connecting Dorn practitioners and teachers worldwide that Dieter Dorn himself inspired as honorary member.

I pray that I will find many friends that understand Self Help / Self Therapy for the purpose of promoting inner balance is a key element in life that will finally help to achieve one of the most important things on this planet: Peace for all!

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.
