Saiqa is also qualified to provide Perrin Technique treatments for long-covid, ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
The Perrin Technique is a specialist osteopathic technique which has been continuously developed over the last 30 years by Dr Ray Perrin as a diagnostic tool and treatment approach for CFS / ME. The effectiveness of this approach has been tested in numerous clinical trials, most recently in an NHS trial and published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ Open) in November 2017
The Perrin Technique has also seen some benefit to patients suffering from ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, post-viral fatigue & Fibromyalgia due to similar systematic malfunctions occurring in their bodies. The Chalfont Clinic is a licensed clinic, using The Perrin Technique as an osteopathic approach to treating people with these conditions. Rakhee Mediratta is an experienced Perrin Technique Practitioner; practising the technique since 2007 and is one of the longest standing and most experienced practitioners.
The Perrin Technique is based on Dr Perrin’s theory that different stress factors whether that be physical (through postural problems or injury), infectious (bacterial or viral), environmental (exposure to toxins or allergies), emotional stress (work or family) or more usually a combination of these which leads to an overload on the sympathetic nervous system. This in turn results in a build-up of toxins in the fluid around the brain and spinal cord. These toxins are supposed to drain down the spinal cord and into the lymphatic system where they leave our bodies via the liver but in people with CFS / ME and similar conditions the drainage points into the lymphatic system are blocked leading to the build-up of congested toxins. This accumulation of toxins can irritate the brain, spinal cord and surrounding tissues contributing to the wide ranges of symptoms associated with CFS / ME
The Perrin Technique treatment uses an osteopathic approach designed to manually stimulate motion of the fluid around the brain and spinal cord to encourage better drainage of the lymphatic system. It involves gentle manipulation of the soft tissues and massaging the head, neck, back and chest areas. This promotes healthier functioning of the sympathetic nervous system and the lymphatic system which together helps to alleviate physical symptoms and stressors. Providing the patient doesn't have significant extra stressors over time they should gradually improve and many return to full health and become totally symptom free.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME is a devastating multi-system disorder which is characterized by exertional malaise, extreme fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. It affects many millions of patients across the world.
However, it is still a mystery and there is no definitive diagnosis or treatment for this disease. Patients of all ages, genders, medical conditions or even good health can be affected by CFS/ME at any stage of their life. There are many patients across the world who are suffering in silence.
During the COVID-19 pandemic many patients who were infected by COVID-19 exhibited the same symptoms or very similar symptoms to CFS/ME after having recovered from COVID-19. Patients reported a change in heartbeat, reduced blood pressure, reduced oxygenation of the brain and a feeling of extreme tiredness which significantly affected daily activities, including family life and career. Research shows that there are similar biological issues between long COVID and CFS/ME. This includes cellular dysfunction, slow metabolism and multi-system inflammation. If left unaddressed, then over time, patients are unable to carry out their daily activities by themselves and eventually can find themselves in a wheelchair or can even become bed-bound.
