The Perrin Technique


The Perrin Technique is a manual system of diagnosis and treatment that has helped hundreds of patients with CFS/ME, and has totally cured many since 1989.


Its effectiveness was tested using two 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.

The science behind The Perrin Technique


Raymond Perrin’s research at the University of Salford in conjunction with the University of Manchester, coupled with hundreds of successful clinical case studies and the latest findings in neurophysiology, has provided strong evidence that CFS/ME involves a disturbance of the drainage of toxins from the brain and muscles.


These poisons often enter the body in the form of viruses, bacteria and other microbes, parasitic infection or due to environmental toxins such as pesticides.


Hover, many toxins are simply an overproduction of chemicals naturally produced within the body to help the immune system with fighting infections, inflammation and stress.


Constant physical and emotional stress can lead to this type of over production. The excess of toxins in the brain and spinal cord should drain out into lymph vessels and be broken down by the body’s lymphatic system and liver. CFS/ME patients have a reversed drainage which leads to toxins building up in the central nervous system causing the dysfunction of the brain and spinal cord. This explains the many different symptoms complained of by CFS/ME patients.
