The Perrin Technique
The Perrin Technique is a manual system of diagnosis and treatment that has helped many hundreds of patients with CFS/ME since 1989.
What happens in the initial consultation?
You will first fill out a questionnaire detailing your main medical history. You will then have a comprehensive consultation with the practitioner which should last a total of about 90 minutes. During the session, your practitioner will spend time explaining CFS/ME and the reasons for the technique plus take a detailed medical case history.
This will be followed by an examination of your spine, abdomen, head and the lymphatics of the thorax which includes the breast tissue ( a chaperone should attend the initial consultation). In the case of a diagnosis, the patient will be given a score out of 10, with 10/10 being perfectly healthy.
What happens in the treatment sessions?
The treatment aims at manually stimulating the drainage of the offending toxins from the central nervous system with gentle stroking towards both collar bones where the lymph drains into larger veins eventually reaching the liver.
Here, the poisons are finally rendered harmless. Gentle manual treatment to the cranium and spine with relaxation of the surrounding muscles together with specific lymphatic drainage techniques eventually improve the health and function of the body as a whole.
Has it been tested?
Yes! Its effectiveness was tested using two separate clinical trials. The first examined the change in the symptoms following a year of treatment. The second repeated the first study and used MRI scanning in order to examine further the possible mechanisms of the improvement.
