Battling CFS/ME and post covid syndrome using The Perrin Technique in London

post covid syndrome using The Perrin Technique in London

Chronic fatigue syndrome also known as CFS/ME is a severely debilitating disease which often begins with a loss of energy and tiredness and can quickly progress to extreme lethargy and fatigue, even leaving some patients with loss of mobility, lack of coordination, and mental weakness until they require full time care and are wheelchair or completely bed bound.

Introducing The Perrin Technique

Dr Raymond Perrin, an osteopath and neuroscientist, has studied this devastating disease extensively throughout the last couple of decades, achieving a doctorate for the immense research and contribution he has made in this field. In the late 1980s, Dr Perrin was treating a cyclist who had presented with lower back pain and a restrictive upper back. Although the cyclist was also complaining of symptoms of CFS/ME, Dr Perrin assumed that this was a separate matter. In the treatment of his lower back pain and restrictive upper back using osteopathic massage techniques, Dr Perrin inadvertently helped alleviate the patient's symptoms of CFS/ME at the same time. This led to the introduction of The Perrin Technique.

Here, at Rakhee Osteopathy, we are proud practitioners of The Perrin Technique in London and have helped many patients over the last 14 years with alleviating their symptoms of CFS/ME using specialised osteopathic techniques including The Perrin Technique. Recently we have begun helping patients alleviate symptoms of tiredness and fatigue following infection by Coronavirus also known as Post Covid syndrome. The symptoms which remain following Coronavirus infection are very similar to those of CFS/ME and therefore we recommend those who are not feeling back to their usual self following Covid to contact us here at Rakhee Osteopathy for a consultation to find out how and why The Perrin Technique in London may be beneficial in the treatment of Post Covid Syndrome or Long Covid. We have been recognised twice for our excellence by Dr Raymond Perrin himself and are here to help you get your life back on track very soon.

How does it work?

The Perrin Technique in London involves specialised osteopathic massages which are thought to manually stimulate the lymphatic system into better drainage so that the body gets rid of toxins, waste products and other harmful substances quicker then it may be doing so in a patient suffering from CFS/ME or Post Covid Syndrome. This technique is based on the idea that such symptoms are caused by excessive harmful substances building up in the cerebrospinal fluid and around the brain. Here at Rakhee Osteopathy we will put together a treatment plan which consists of specialist massages which are carried out by our experienced practitioners and we will also teach you simple massages and exercises according to your tolerance levels and your requirements which you can carry out by yourself or with the help of a friend or relative at home. By putting together a treatment plan which you can adhere to, we can help ensure that you will begin to notice a reduction in the severity of your symptoms slowly but surely until we can hopefully achieve a full recovery altogether. Speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy today to find out more and we hope to help restore your health.
