The Breuss Massage


The Breuss Massage is a very gentle Spinal Massage that safely stretches, nourishes, aligns, energizes and heals our back! It was developed by the late Austrian Healer Rudolf Breuss and it is a perfect combination with the Dorn Method. Most Dorn Method Courses also teach the Breuss Massage today.

Rudolf Breuss said that there is no such thing as ‘wear’ if the intervertebral disc but the discs are somewhat ‘degenerated’, and he was convinced that regeneration is possible. Certainly the results achieved with the Breuss Massage suggest that this is quite possible!

For basic understanding: Our Spine is like any other living organism, it is in a constant state of ‘stress and relief’, needs nourishment, rest but also the right amount of ‘stress’ in a sense in form of active movements to maintain its strength and function. During the day our Spine and especially our ‘discs’ are stressed and they need to fulfill their duty as shock-absorbers whenever we stand , walk or sit. Because of that the discs are squeezed, some of the liquid within gets out and the discs gets thinner. We are actually a little shorter in the evening compared to the morning after standing up! During sleep the Spine relaxes and stretches out and the discs somewhat can regenerate by ‘sucking’ the liquid they lost during the day back in, almost like a dry sponge placed in water. This mechanism is altered in a negative way when our metabolism is not in a balance or impaired for many different reasons.

The Breuss Massage is actively replacing in a sense a whole and healthy full night sleep by stretching the Spine and Using natural Oil in the Process the discs are nourished like the sponge given water. In this relaxed state the Spine also can be safely and painless re-aligned.

Healing Techniques further help in the regeneration process and balance the Spinal Energies so Blockages in the Physical as well as in the Psychical and Spiritual Levels are resolved!

I use the Breuss Massage in combination with the Dorn Therapy or as its own standing form of therapy. When the patient has strong sciatic pains or is very tense then I usually do the Breuss Massage before the Dorn Therapy to take away some of the pain and tension which can make the following alignment more effective. Time required is only about 25 minutes but can easily be longer if you want. Everybody who learns and experiences the Breuss Massage is convinced that this Massage technique is unique, highly effective, safe and totally relaxing. It has a definite potential to become a often asked for Massage Therapy in Wellness centers, Rehabilitation Facilities, Therapy Centers and other Health Clinics.

Because the Breuss Massage contains some Non Manipulative Healing Techniques it can be a link between Physical and Non Physical Therapies like Healing and bring both Sides closer together, which in turn allows a more ‘wholistic’ approach towards health and well-being.
