How effective is the Perrin Technique?

Many patients may have tried everything to relieve their symptoms of CFS or ME, however the Perrin Technique has received fantastic feedback, not only within the walls of our specialist clinic, but also with a clinical trial to see how The Perrin Technique can assist with a CFS / ME diagnosis. This clinical trial is a recent research study by the National Health Service (NHS) which was published in the British Medical Journal in 2017.

So what are the benefits of the Perrin Technique in London?

Just one of the many benefits of this particular osteopathic technique is the relief from symptoms for patients suffering from post-viral fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and even some neurological symptoms which are caused by similar malfunctions within systematic processes within the body.

Learning the theory behind the Perrin Technique

Many of our patients suffering from symptoms may be unsure of what to expect from the treatment process at our clinic, in addition to the theory behind our practice. Dr Perrin suggests that different stress factors, be they physical, environmental, or possibly even emotional, either individually or as a combination, can lead to an overload on the sympathetic nervous system, which therefore leads to a multitude of unwanted symptoms which are associated with both ME and CFS, which patients therefore wish to alleviate.

So how does the Perrin Technique work

This technique takes advantage of a specialist osteopathic approach that essentially manually stimulates the fluid which surrounds the brain, and spinal cord, which consequently leads to better draining of the lymphatic system. 

What to expect from the treatment

Patients can expect to receive gentle manipulation of the tissues surrounding the back and chest area, in addition to both the neck, and the head. This technique essentially encourages healthy functioning of both the lymphatic system, and the sympathetic nervous system which leads to a decrease of unpleasant physical symptoms, and stressors. 

What can I expect from the consultation?

During this consultation patients can expect an initial session lasting around ninety minutes. Within this appointment our specialist will discuss any of your queries or concerns regarding your symptoms, whilst addressing the ways in which you wish to pursue treatment. Out team will also develop a specialised treatment plan to ensure our patients achieve the best possible results. Lastly, patients receive 30 minutes of treatment as part of this initial consultation.
