The Understanding Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME live stream course is designed for any practitioner interested in understanding and managing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) in their patients.

In this online seminar Dr Perrin will show how his model explains the pathological dysfunction of the neuro-lymphatic system in CFS/ME .

The online seminar is designed to practically help the clinician improve their understanding of CFS/ME.

Dr Perrin will show that this is not a new disease and how it affects millions of people all over the world and will inevitably be more present than ever in our clinical lives following the CORVID-19 Pandemic.

Different diagnostic and treatment techniques will be discussed.



At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to CFS/ME.
  2. Be able to identify aetiological and maintaining factors that may have predisposed the patient and increased their susceptibility to developing CFS/ME.
  3. Increase their knowledge of the treatment protocols available to help with CFS/ME.

In 2015 he joined the international faculty of the German School of Osteopathy.  He has lectured internationally and in the UK to patient groups and medical professionals on the diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME and FMS having run workshops throughout Europe, the USA, South Africa, Russia and Canada.
