The Perrin Technique™

M.E. and 
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

M.E/CFS Treatment Eastbourne

What is the Perrin Technique?


The Perrin Technique™ was developed in 1989 by Dr Raymond Perrin PhD, a now renowned British osteopath. The technique involves the stimulation of the lymphatic system to promote adequate drainage of neurotoxins from the central nervous system.  At Jane Reynolds & Associates we are committed to providing this cutting-edge method for clients in Eastbourne.

In 2017, a clinical trial sponsored and controlled by the NHS was performed and the results demonstrated the huge potential of the Perrin Technique™ to for the diagnosis of M.E. A current research project is underway to demonstrate the effectiveness of this manual treatment for not only M.E and other post-viral fatigue syndromes but specifically long Covid.

According to Dr Perrin, following a severe viral infection, M.E. and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CSF) can develop.  This is caused by an accumulation of chemicals and other toxic substances in the brain and spinal cord which inflame the systems and lead to a dysfunction of the sympathetic nervous system. This part of the nervous system is vital for healthy lymphatic drainage.



Who Can the Perrin Technique™ Help?

The main ailments that the Perrin Technique™ is used to treat are those which cause chronic fatigue and other long-term pain or fatigue syndromes. In recent years, the efficacy of the technique for M.E. (otherwise known as Myalgia Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) has become apparent, and the impact of the Perrin Technique™ in alleviating symptoms has been enormous for many sufferers.

Following the global pandemic, a certain segment of COVID sufferers developed Long COVID and Dr Perrin is leading research into the effects of his technique on these people.  Jane Reynolds suffered herself with Long COVID and found the Perrin technique™ helped her.
