The Perrin technique for improving the lymphatic drainage system

the Perrin Technique in London

The lymphatic system is important for the detoxification of the body. In certain conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), Fibromyalgia and other similar illnesses including long COVID, it is thought that the lymphatic system is unable to function correctly. This results in the build-up of neurotoxins in the body, especially the cerebrospinal fluid and this has a negative impact on the sympathetic nervous system. The system is responsible for maintaining the homeostasis of the organ systems, as well as activating the body’s response to dangerous or stressful situations also known as fight or flight. The sympathetic nervous system plays a role in almost every organ system and therefore, if it is not functioning correctly it can have devastatingly debilitating effects on the patient.

If you suffer from CFS/ME or another similar disorder which results in chronic fatigue and other long-term symptoms which prevent you from carrying out your daily activities, then you need to speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy and find out about the Perrin technique in London.

Role of the Perrin technique

The Perrin technique in London is thought to help stimulate the lymphatic system using specialist massage techniques. These help to remove neurotoxins from the cerebrospinal fluid into the blood, so that they can be circulated to the liver for metabolism and detoxification. If the neurotoxins are effectively removed from the cerebrospinal fluid and tissues of the body, then the sympathetic nervous system can begin to function correctly. Thus this will help combat the symptoms of CFS/ME and other conditions such as long COVID.

At the initial appointment our award-winning Perrin technique practitioner will take a detailed case history. They will look at any medical reports you may have, learn about any medication you may have been prescribed and then carry out a physical examination to help make a diagnosis. The Perrin technique in London looks for 5 specific physical characteristics which are used to provide you with a definitive diagnosis of CFS/ME. The findings will be used to put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. We will explain how long the treatment will need to continue and book you in for subsequent appointments that are suitable for you. We are also able to offer home visits for those patients who are bedbound or unable to visit us in person.

The appointments involve specialist massage techniques of the head, neck, chest and back which are designed to stimulate the healthy flow of lymphatic and cerebrospinal fluid, to remove toxins from the body and reduce the strain on the sympathetic nervous system.
