In April Dr Perrin had his first trip to the southern hemisphere to teach The Perrin Technique. The organistion Club-Physio organised the trip and Dr Perrin was kept very busy conducting two workshops back-to-back with 20 practitioners in Johannesburg and 13 in Cape Town. Dr Perrin had one day free to go down to Cape Point where Ihe saw a colony of penguins and met up with a family of baboons. The monkeys surprisingly werent that interested in The PerrinTechnique ....only if Dr Perrin had any food. So The Perrin Technique is truly going global.

Lectures to the major UK Osteopathic Colleges


Over the past few months Dr Perrin has been invited by the three main osteopathic colleges (The British School of Osteopathy, and The British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London and the European School of Ostopathy in Maidstone) to lecture to their student bodies. They were all excited about the NHS research starting and the interest in The Perrin technique is at an all time high within the osteopathic profession.

Dr Perrin gave his report about the latest other CFS/ME research around the world and also led a practical refresher session on the diagnostic procedure ably helped by Gail Sumner and Kerry Maguire, the two practitioners who assessed the participants in the blind controlled study and came up trumps and were both worthy recipients of the Perrin clinic Personality of the year award.

Obviously to avoid any bias Dr Perrin will not be involved in the project but it is a pleasure to tell you all that on 1st July the NHS research Project into the Perrin Technique diagnosis will officially begin. It will be running for a year so that by July 2016 the results will be ready for publishing.

Dr Perrin is equaly delighted to announce that he is soon to revisit the ESO and run a workshop for a group of tutors at the college who will be teaching the techniques to the students. There will soon be a CFS/ME clinic in the school and the college will be the first in the world to teach the Perrin Technique as part of their undergraduate course. After a refresher course new graduates with experience at the ESO clinic will then be able to become licensed practioners. Hopefully this will be repeated throughout the other osteopathic, physiotherapy and chiropractic educational establishments.
