Symptoms of ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There is a wide range of symptoms but most notable are:

  • Post exertional malaise - inability to cope with activities of daily living and exercise
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Disturbed sleep patterns particularly difficulty getting to or remaining asleep
  • Non-restorative sleep and poor-quality sleep
  • Difficulty focusing attention and memory recall
  • Difficulty reading due to poor visual focus
  • Spinal Joint pains
  • Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Menstrual cycle and other hormonal imbalances
  • Sensitivity to loud sounds and bright light 


You will receive:

  • The Perrin Technique, which is a combination of lymphatic draining targeting lymphatic back flow, gentle spinal mobility, and craniosacral therapy used in conjunction with a gentle lymph drainage and spinal mobility home program
  • Holistic advice on pacing your daily activities, an anti-inflammatory diet, breathing techniques, wellness and mindfulness exercises for stress relief and management, and talk therapies or counselling.

Patients suffering from Long COVID symptoms are also responding to The Perrin Technique. The NHS is currently sponsoring a study to show the efficacy of The Perrin Technique home rehab program as a stand alone treatment to treat the symptoms of Long COVID.
