The Perrin Technique

​What is The Perrin Technique?


The Perrin Technique is an osteopathic method which diagnoses and treats patients suffering from Myalgic Encephalitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia and new studies suggest the Perrin Technique treats some symptoms from long covid.

The Perrin Technique was developed in 1989 by British osteopath and neuroscientist Dr Raymond Perrin DO PhD. Dr Perrin’s theory is that different stress factors whether physical, allergies, emotional or infections lead to an overstrain of the sympathetic nervous system. In ME/CFS sufferers the sympathetic nervous system may have been placed under stress for many years before the onset of symptoms.

The intention of the technique is to drain the toxins from the body by stimulating the lymphatic system. It is vital to have healthy lymphatic drainage to prevent further accumulation of toxins.

What happens in the Initial Consultation?

To treat the symptoms of CFS/ME, Tessa our Perrin osteopath, will target the lymphatics on the chest and back. The aim of this approach is to target and improve the lymphatic system, focusing on increasing fluid motion around the brain and spinal cord.  Through a series of massage techniques, toxins are drained from the blood and detoxified and released from the body by the liver.

How much will it cost to book Perrin technique treatment in Solihull?

At Solihull Osteopathic Practice we like to spend our time getting to know you and the challenges you are experiencing with your health.

The initial consultation will be 1 hour 45 minutes long. This will include a diagnosis, scoring the severity of your symptoms, establishing a treatment plan and timeframe for your improvement. 

We recommend that patients bring a chaperone to the first few appointments as we require a lot of information, and this can be quite tiring for the patient

Our charges for Perrin technique treatments are as follows:

Initial consultation and treatment


( 1 hour and 45 minutes)  £120.00

Follow-up Appointments



(30 minutes) £54.00
