Breuss Massage

The Breuss Massage is a very gentle Spinal Massage that safely stretches, nourishes, aligns and energises the spine.

The Breuss Massage – named after its inventor Rudolf Breuss – is used in combination with the Dorn Method.

Rudolf Breuss did not believe in ‘wear and tear’ of the intervertebral discs, instead he believed that discs can 'degenerate’, he was convinced that regeneration was possible.

Breuss massage is:

  • generally carried out prior to the Dorn Treatment and highlights imbalances of the vertebral column.
  • a relaxing, nourishing and gentle massage which helps dissolve psychical and somatic blockages.


The spine is like any other living organism, which is in a constant state of ‘stress and relief’.

It not only needs nourishment and rest, but also the right amount of ‘stress’ in the 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. These discs are consequently squeezed and some of the liquid within gets out decreasing the discs size.

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 can somewhat regenerate by ‘sucking’ back in the liquid they lost during the day, almost like a dry sponge placed in water.

This mechanism is altered in a negative way when our metabolism is not in balance or impaired for many different reasons.

The Breuss Massage actually stretches the spine, and acts rather like a whole nights worth of healthy sleeping.

  • an effective method to enhance the regeneration process of undernourished intervertebral discs, and a simple and effective way to treat and cure sciatica, lumbago, ect.
