Course times : 8am – 5pm
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM; Anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment with award winning Osteopath Dr Raymond Perrin.
Manchester based osteopath and neuroscientist Dr Raymond Perrin DO PhD won the Research and Practice Award given by the Institute of Osteopathy in their first ever national awards ceremony held at their Annual convention in Egham, Surrey, Nov 2016. Dr Perrin was the recipient of the award given for his 26 years research into the physical diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME and fibromyalgia which is now the subject of a new NHS research trial at Wrightington Hospital in Cheshire.
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM; Anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment
Ever since Aselli first documented the lymphatic system nearly 400 years ago there has been one basic consistency within the medical world whether orthodox or complementary regarding this incredibly important part of the human anatomy and physiology which is involved in every pathology to affect our health and that is Ignorance.
The ignorance is not usually the fault of the practitioner; it is the educational system that lays much more emphasis on the other important systems of the body for example the cardiovascular-respiratory, gastro-intestinal and in physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and other manual therapies it is the neuro-muscular skeletal systems. However healthy lymphatics are paramount in all these systems and we as healthcare need to go back to the roots of osteopathy as its founder Andre Taylor Still said over a hundred years ago – “illness is mainly due to stagnation of body fluids and that if you can stimulate blood flow and other fluid motion including cerebro-spinal fluid and lymphatic drainage then the body will recover”
Stagnation in the lymph results in “fermentation, fever, sickness and death.”
When asked about the “eternal truths” of manual therapies, he responded, “[Those truths] are found in the spinal column with all of its intricate bony framework, plus the beautiful circulation of blood and lymph through the nerve centers of the spinal cord and throughout the whole body.”
The father of cranial treatment William Garner Sutherland said – “When you tap the waters of the brain by compressing the fourth ventricle see what happens in the lymphatic system. Visualise the lymph node that is holding some poison that has gathered there, changing the constituency before the lymph is moved along into the venous system”
Still admitted, “Possibly less is known of the lymphatics than any other division of the life-sustaining machinery of man.”
Do not be ignorant any more: Learn the techniques of physical therapy pioneers such as Millard, Barber, Miller, Millie, Zinc, Sutherland and even Still himself as well as understanding seminal lymphatic techniques of manual lymphatic luminaries such as Emile and Astrid Vodder as well as discussing up do date manual lymphatic drainage of Dr Bruno Chickly.
With practical technique sessions on examining the lymphatic system, diagnosing lymph pathologies and rediscovering pedal, thoracic, abdominal pump techniques and so much more including the award winning and ground breaking Perrin Technique developed by Dr Raymond Perrin himself designed to drain the recently proven neuro-lymphatic (glymphatic) system.
This course is a must for any medical practitioner and all physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and manual therapists unless you are happy to leave out diagnostic signs that can save a patient’s life and techniques that can speed up the healing of all your patients and really make a difference.
