Chronic Fatigue Relief for CFS/ME and long COVID


chronic fatigue relief london

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a multi-system disorder that is characterised by extreme fatigue that does not go away with rest or sleep. It is also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or CFS/ME. It is estimated that CFS/ME may affect up to 2.5% of the general population, however it still remains a black hole of medicine. There is much confusion around CFS/ME and because of this there is no definitive diagnosis or treatment, despite advances in medical research and technology. Studies show that although it can affect patients of all ages it is more likely to affect patients over the age of 30 and those with a family history of this illness. CFS/ME is associated with other conditions including fibromyalgia, long COVID and mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. If you are affected by symptoms of CFS/ME or if you have had a positive diagnosis, then you need to speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy and find out about Chronic Fatigue relief London.


Long COVID


It is thought that an infection, bacterial or viral, could trigger CFS/ME in susceptible patients. For example a significant percentage of patients who have been infected by COVID-19 find that they experience Chronic Fatigue many months after they are no longer infected. Other long COVID symptoms are also similar to those of CFS/ME, and similarly there is no definitive diagnosis or treatment for long COVID either. If you are suffering from long COVID then you can also speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy and find out about Chronic Fatigue relief London. We have been helping patients with both CFS/ME and long COVID combat their symptoms so speak to us today to find out more.


Chronic Fatigue relief


At Rakhee Osteopathy we use The Perrin Technique to provide Chronic Fatigue relief London. The Perrin Technique is based on Dr Raymond Perrin’s theory that CFS/ME and other similar illnesses such as long COVID occur when triggers such as an infection, an accident, physical trauma, emotional trauma, allergic reactions or exposure to pollutants result in an over strain of the sympathetic nervous system. This results in numerous symptoms that have devastating impact, affecting all parts of the body. The body thinks that it is in constant fight or flight mode and over time this results in Chronic Fatigue and other difficult symptoms, such as cognitive dysfunction which include sleep disturbances, poor concentration, brain fog and even memory loss. Patients can experience palpitations, anxiety, depression, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.


The Perrin Technique


To help control these symptoms we use The Perrin Technique. The Perrin Technique is an osteopathic massage technique. It includes massages of the head, neck, back and chest that are designed to help remove toxins from the body so that the sympathetic nervous system can relax and rather the parasympathetic nervous system can regulate the body to bring back normality. We will assess your symptoms and look for signs of CFS/ME so that we can put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. This may take many months or you may begin noticing a change after a few sessions of undergoing The Perrin Technique. Speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy today to find out more.
