What is the Perrin technique in London?


If you need help with any of the conditions we’ve mentioned, then it is highly likely that you are suffering with a stress load on your sympathetic nervous system. Simply put, you might be stressed out about work - burning the candles at both ends trying to get everything done for the boss - whilst also juggling family life. This emotional stress can release toxins in and around the brain and spinal cord. Similarly, you may also have stress caused by environmental factors such as being exposed to toxins or allergies; you may have physical stresses with injuries or postural difficulties; you could even have been suffering from a viral or bacterial infection which has left you feeling weakened. Any of these things will be releasing the toxins into your body that take their toll on your body.


The Perrin technique aims to improve the symptoms of stress on your sympathetic nervous system. Ordinarily, the toxins produced are around the brain and in the spinal cord; the toxins are formed from any of the stresses you have experienced and would ordinarily drain away down the spinal cord and go into your liver to then be removed from the body. If you have ME, CFS or other similar conditions, then you may experience a build-up of the toxins as the way they would normally drain away to the liver can be blocked. When the toxins are congested, it can exacerbate the symptoms of ME or CFS.


The Perrin technique involves encouraging the circulation of fluid around the brain and spinal cord and therefore improves the drainage to the lymphatic system.


How does the Perrin technique in London improve the drainage of toxins?


Using osteopathic treatment, your osteopath here at Rakhee Osteopathy will encourage circulation of the fluid by manipulating the head, neck, chest and back. Gentle massage is carried out on soft tissue, along with manipulation of the neck, chest and back. It aims to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system and sympathetic nervous system.


What results should I hope to see?


It is hoped that we will be able to give you a healthier functioning nervous and lymphatic systems. If both of these things improve, then you should also hope to see a reduction in the stressors and their associated symptoms leading you towards better health, where possible.


What do I need to do?


If you think that you could benefit from treatment, you will need to book in for a consultation. We will need to be together for about 90 minutes while we take your history and examine you. We will also explain in detail what the treatment involves and you can ask questions before any treatment starts. The aim is to help to improve your quality of life, so we want you to fully understand what is involved in reaching your goals.
