CFS ME Perrin Technique


The Perrin Technique™ is a manual system of diagnosis and treatment that has helped many hundreds of patients with CFS/ME, since 1989. The Perrin Technique™ was developed as a result of a chance discovery during the clinical practice of a Manchester osteopath, Dr Raymond Perrin.
