What is CFS?

Chances are if you’re reading this you already know what ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ is and how it makes you feel, or maybe a loved one is suffering from it and you want to get them aid. Whatever has brought you to this point we want to help and we want you to have a well-rounded understanding of the problem, so that you can understand our solution for this complicated disorder.

CFS is characterised by extreme fatigue that can’t seem to be explained by any other underlying issues, in fact, the cause is still unknown which makes it very difficult for doctors to treat it. It can get worse with mental or physical activity and seems to abate with rest, but you can’t spend your life in bed not having any energy to perform basic tasks and we don’t want you to, which is why the Perrin Technique in London was created.

What is the Perrin Technique?

This technique was created by Dr. Ray Perrin to diagnose and treat patients with CFS, it has also had success with patients suffering from fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and neurological conditions. Dr. Perrin had a theory that different stress factors, whether they be physical, from infection, environmental, emotional or a combination of these, can lead to an overload on the sympathetic nervous system, which leads to a build-up of toxins around the brain and spinal cord. Normally these toxins are drained from the body through the lymphatic system, but in people with CFS there are blockages that stop this drainage, allowing the toxins to build up and have an adverse effect on the brain which may cause the symptoms of CFS.

What the technique does is use osteopathy to release these areas that are holding on to toxins, to encourage the body to use its lymphatic system to carry the toxins through the liver and out the body. So while drugs are used to treat symptoms, the Perrin Technique in London treats the problem.

How does it work?

This treatment takes a holistic whole-body approach through movement, stretching, and massaging your muscles and joints, it is not physiotherapy nor chiropractics, but rather an analysis of movement that can trigger releases within the lymphatic system to help drain toxins that may cause fatigue and other chronic conditions.

Osteopathy is a drug-free and non-invasive technique that, through strengthening and manipulating the musculoskeletal framework, can improve health across all body systems. So if you are struggling with being tired all the time, have unexplained joint pain and feel generally unwell without explanation, this is the therapy for you.
