The Perrin Technique: on the road to recovery from CFS/ME

Perrin Technique in London

The Perrin Technique in London is an osteopathic technique established by Dr Raymond Perrin, a registered osteopath and neuroscientist, in the late 1980s, when he treated a cyclist for lower back pain and inadvertently helped to alleviate the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as CFS/ME, at the same time. Following this experience and encouraged by successfully treating the cyclist, Dr Perrin went on to carry out many years of research into CFS/ME, which earned him a doctorate and significant recognition amongst his peers. Today, he is regarded as a specialist in chronic fatigue syndrome. The Perrin Technique in London has been put through a number of trials and was recently tested by the NHS. Here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we are proud practitioners of The Perrin Technique in London and we have been awarded for excellence twice by Dr Raymond Perrin himself because of our service and technique.

What is CFS/ME?

CFS/ME is a brutal illness that is difficult to diagnose and, therefore, challenging to treat. It is a disease with serious complications that take over your life, beginning with headaches and tiredness and progressing to exercise intolerance and difficulties carrying out daily activities. It can result in the loss of mobility and coordination, lapses in memory and even becoming wheelchair-bound or bed-bound. It is an illness that affects people from all walks of life and at any age, being found in children as young as 5 years old all the way out to those enjoying their retirement. It can affect people with healthy and active lifestyles as well as those with a more relaxed and quiet life.

If you or your loved one have been affected by such symptoms or if you have been diagnosed with this devastating disease, then it is important that you contact us here at Rakhee Osteopathy. Given the immense difficulty of diagnosing CFS/ME, many people still suffer due to misdiagnoses. However, here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we will use our knowledge and expertise to provide you with a reliable diagnosis of the illness and work with you to put together a suitable treatment plan which you are able to adhere to successfully. We can help to alleviate and eventually combat the devastating symptoms of this disease.

How does the Perrin Technique work?

The Perrin Technique in London uses specialised osteopathic massage techniques to manually stimulate the lymphatic system into draining cell waste products and other harmful toxins that may have built up in the nervous system. These toxins are responsible for preventing the healthy functioning of other systems in the body, such as the central nervous system, which may then result in the loss of mobility and coordination often found in CFS/ME patients.

So, book an appointment with one of our friendly and qualified practitioners here at our conveniently located, London-based practice today. Let us work with you to help you slowly but surely get your life back on track.
