Fed up with having chronic fatigue syndrome? An introduction to the Perrin Technique in London

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

Perrin Technique in London

In the modern world, many people feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Longer working hours, higher demands from bosses or clients often mean that fewer people are actually able to make time for themselves to decompress and relax both their body and mind.

Of course, stress is no good for anyone and can lead to an array of disorders, from undiagnosed pain, to sleep disorders and may even lead to mental health problems. It has long been theorised that unusual exposure to stressful situations can overwhelm the sympathetic nervous system, which while harmless in some people due to lymphatic drainage, can be detrimental to others who have problems who have issues with lymphatic drainage points.

So, what can be done? You could try to ignore the associated symptoms of poor lymphatic drainage or you could turn to a more natural, safe approach to help your body get rid of those toxins without any unpleasant side effects.

Known as the Perrin Technique in London, this osteopathic procedure can help patients with lymphatic drainage problems. Performed by Rakhee Mediratta, this specialist technique will help you to literally drain the stresses of life away, all while undertaking a personalised and targeted massage. Bliss!

Of course, you probably want a bit of background before booking your appointment for the Perrin Technique in London with us. Here is our brief introductory guide for you to look at.

What is osteopathy?

Firstly, let's look at the basics behind the Perrin Technique in London.

Osteopathy is a complementary medical technique, which involves treating medical conditions through massaging and manipulating of the musculoskeletal structures throughout the body. Many patients are referred to osteopaths to manage chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

What is the Perrin Technique?

Loosely based on the principles of osteopathy, the Perrin Technique involves manipulating the soft tissues, while also gently massaging the chest, head, back and neck. This has been found to reduce issues with lymphatic drainage, and to help reduce stress throughout the body, while also promoting improved functioning of the sympathetic nervous system. Perfect!

What conditions can it treat?

This technique has been developed over the last 30 years to target common conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

As the name suggests, chronic fatigue syndrome often causes those who suffer from it to feel extremely tired during the day, alongside other sleep disturbances such as insomnia. Alongside this, patients often also report having frequent headaches, sore throats, aching muscles, foggy thinking, and even flu-like symptoms. There is no known cure and as you can imagine, these symptoms can have a detrimental impact on day to day functioning!

Does the Perrin Technique work?

Patients who suffer from CFS and undertake the Perrin Technique see a gradual improvement in their symptoms, provided they are kept free from external stresses. Return of energy, better sleep, and improvement in mood are often reported, so if you suffer from CFS and have tried everything else, this technique could help you to feel better sooner!
