Manual Therapy


At Philani we offer a hands on treatment that includes spine alignment, joints loosening, soft tissue and spinal massage.

We focus on misalignments in the spine, as these can cause organs to malfunction and in turn lead to disease.

This Manual Therapy has successfully treated migraines, scoliosis and other skeletal & muscular linked discomforts.

Dorn Method Therapy

a gentle and safe correction of the misalignments in the spine, the pelvis and other joints. Its a safe manipulation without clicking or crunching the vertebrae back into its natural position. 

The Breuss Massage

an intervertebral disc massage that compliments the Dorn Method. Using sensitive energetic manual massage along the spine to dissolve physical, energetic and emotional blockages. This back massage further stretches, energises and regenerates the spine.

CranioSacral Therapy

a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system. Using a soft touch the therapy releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

``Look well to the spine, for the causes of disease``

Zanele helped me recover from a slipped L3 disk. It was a tremendously shaky- scary even- painful time.

I’ve received my second treatment and U must know that my back has improved very the point where the slipped disc is back in position and I improve daily. So I’m very pleased and excited.

Kevin Parissien

I had an appointment with Zanele to try and sort out my intense lower back pain. She not only sorted out my back, but sensed the whole “mind-body-soul” me, and was spot on with her referral to a colleague. I can’t wait until my family makes an appointment with her. A true healer.

I just also wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. For the first time in months and months, I am able to walk without a limp and any pain in my left leg. I feel amazing – so thank you for helping my poor spine.

Tabitha Quelch

I have found the Dorn treatments to be incredibly powerful and effective in shifting emotional debris. I felt totally comfortable and at ease during the session and your knowledge, wisdom and insight were incredible. I have found the treatment to be physically, emotionally and spiritualy beneficial and I would most certainly recommend it to others.
