The role of the Perrin technique in the successful management of CFS/ME

The Perrin Technique in London

The Perrin technique in London is an osteopathic technique which has been designed for the diagnosis and management of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or CFS/ME. The name translates to extreme tiredness which lasts for a long period of time with muscular aches and pains, and associated inflammation of the brain and spinal cord.

CFS/ME is a complicated disorder often referred to as ‘the black hole’ of medicine. Despite many years of research into CFS/ME there is still no definitive diagnosis or treatment for this disease. CFS/ME is a multi-system disorder affecting people from all walks of life at any age and of any gender, sometimes without any warning. It is thought to occur as a result of the build-up of toxins in the body which places pressure on the sympathetic nervous system. This continues to function until a stress factor pushes it into overdrive and it cannot maintain the body’s homeostasis any longer. The stress factor could be a variety of different issues. It could be a physical stress factor, a psychological stress factor such as a traumatic life event or it could be an illness such as a virus, for example COVID-19.

What is the Perrin technique?

The Perrin technique in London uses visual and manual assessment of your body and your symptoms to help provide you with a positive diagnosis for the disease. You may have been diagnosed by your GP or health practitioner, but sometimes many patients are yet to receive a positive diagnosis and this can make it more difficult to manage the disease. Here at Rakhee Osteopathy we will either diagnose you with CFS/ME or we will try and help you find the cause of your symptoms. We will then be able to put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you which will help ease your symptoms and begin to get your life back on track once more. To begin with, patients are looking to start carrying out their own personal needs by themselves, then going about their daily activities and slowly returning back to work and to their usual lives again.

The Perrin technique in London is designed to help eliminate toxins from the body. It uses specialist spinal and cranial massage techniques which are thought to promote lymph flow around the body. The lymphatic system is involved in the drainage of toxins from the body. By stimulating lymph flow using massage techniques, the technique aims to detoxify the body and over time alleviate the symptoms that are associated with CFS/ME. The technique cannot achieve instant results, you will have to be consistent with the treatment plan and your Perrin practitioner will show you simple exercises which you can also carry out at home or with the assistance of a friend or a loved one to help your recovery.
