Combat the symptoms of Long COVID with The Perrin Technique London

The Perrin Technique London

Most people have heard of Long COVID because it has affected them or someone they know or they heard about it on the news. Long COVID is a term used to describe the presence of various symptoms weeks or months after being infected by COVID-19. The symptoms vary from patient to patient, but one of the most common symptoms found in nearly all patients is profound fatigue. A persistent cough and breathlessness are very common too. Patients report aches and pains in their muscles and joints, and some patients experience heaviness or pressure in their chests. Other symptoms include palpitations, fever and headache.

It is difficult to determine exactly when a patient has Long COVID because the recovery varies depending upon the severity of the illness. If you were affected by COVID-19 and feel that you have still not fully recovered, speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy to learn about alternative therapy to help you where your GP may not have been able to.

Here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we use The Perrin Technique London, which involves osteopathic massages designed to improve blood and lymph flow and remove toxins from the body, to help patients improve their health and wellbeing.

The Perrin Technique

The Perrin Technique London was developed as a result of decades of research by Dr Raymond Perrin, an osteopath and neuroscientist, who found that the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue could be treated by osteopathic massages. Whilst treating a cyclist for lower back pain, Dr Perrin inadvertently alleviated the patient's symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as CFS/ME. His research suggested that specialised massages of the spine and cranium can encourage better fluid motion so that toxins could be drained from the cerebrospinal fluid allowing the optimal function of the different organ systems and the body as a whole. The body is then able to metabolise or excrete toxins more effectively, which may have built up in the system as a result of a virus, such as COVID-19, a bacterial

infection, other environmental factors such as exposure to pollutants in the atmosphere, stress or other illnesses.

Managing the symptoms of Long COVID

Unfortunately, there is no single treatment or medication that can treat the debilitating symptoms of Long COVID. Long COVID can have an impact on all aspects of your life and make your daily activities difficult. It is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to promote good wellbeing. This includes a healthy diet, mild or moderate exercise, good quality sleep, and simply working your way through the day at a pace that suits you without over-exerting yourself, which can otherwise worsen your symptoms.

Here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we can put together a treatment plan to help combat your symptoms slowly but surely. The Perrin Technique London does not produce immediate results, but by undergoing regular sessions, you can boost your health and wellbeing and get back to feeling like your usual self once again.
