We are Specialists in the Perrin Technique

The Perrin technique provided in Cambridge, is a specialised osteopathic approach being used clinically since 1989, and now practiced internationally. Which has undergone multiple studies, including in-house NHS trials for its aid in effective diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. These were in relation to the presenting condition of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is often a related condition with Fibromyalgia. Currently the focus of research and the Perrin technique is in relation to Long Covid, which is often a related condition with Post Viral Fatigue.

Michael Parr the consulting osteopath of Elementary Health is the registered practitioner of the Perrin Technique for the Cambridge and Stevenage zones, he has assisted in the training of the approach to fellow osteopaths, and was also the Official Locum for the Perrin Clinic.

The technique is a specialised doctoral research-based osteopathic approach, which is slowly undergoing trials for its effectiveness. With the hope that a few more studies, including for long covid treatment are performed in the near future, to ensure patients continue to be re-assured of current Perrin technique protocols.


Michael is a very conscientious, thorough and dedicated practitioner. He has helped me a lot on my healing journey, willing to go the extra mile to keep me on track and provide reassurance in those low moments. I would highly recommend him as a skilled osteopath and Perrin Technique practitioner.

Perrin Technique Treatment

The treatment aims at manually stimulating and assisting drainage systems, by gentle joint articulation, stretching and relaxation of the surrounding muscles, together with the treatment to the lymphatics. Which can all be assisted with osteopathic approaches, and the treatment to the cranio-sacral rhythm (cranial osteopath cambridge), are extremely useful in the overall treatment.

For more information on this approach, post viral fatigue states, diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome, and the current research in relation to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment and Long Covid Treatment, please look at the official Perrin Technique website.
