Licensed Perrin Practitioner Nik Altmann is succeeding in trying to make the Perrin Technique more visible in Austria – as last month he appeared in the local news!.

“Nikolaus Altmann knows how sufferers of chronic fatigue can overcome it. The man from Wachau completed his training as an osteopath in Great Britain and recently returned to Krems. He has “The Perrin Technique” in his luggage….”

Dr Ray Perrin presented his lecture ‘Long-COVID/Post COVID-19 Syndrome: An Osteopathic Approach’ at the 2nd Israeli Osteopathic Congress in Tel Aviv. 

Also amongst the lecturers were licensed Perrin Technique Practitioners Jöry Pauwels (based in Belgium) and Vincent Staf (based in France)!

The event was attended by leading experts from around the world to share scientific research and show the connection between osteopathy and other areas of medicine. Participants from the USA, France, Belgium, Russia, Great Britain and Israel were in attendance as well as hundreds of international viewers on Zoom.

On the second day of the event, Ray ran his diagnostic workshop “An osteopathic protocol to aid diagnosis for ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Long-COVID” and he will be returning to Israel in November to give a two day Perrin Technique training workshop.

Sunday 19th March saw the return of the Run Wigan Festival which consists of a half-marathon, a 5K run and a family mile. Perrin Technique Practitioner Sue Capstick and her team at The Bridgeman Physiotherapy Centre in the North West of England are an associate sponsor of the event and were back providing pre + post race massages to raise funds for the F.O.R.M.E. Charity (Fund for Osteopathic Research into M.E.)

Sports therapy students from Wigan and Leigh College, Edge Hill University and University of Central Lancashire volunteered at the stall to provide the sports massages. as well as the numerous volunteers needed to man the stall…. to keep up with all the donations that were flying in! 

Around £575 was raised on the day, to add to the thousands that Sue Capstick & her clinic have raised for the charity over the years. See donation page here.

Practitioners like Sue have excelled in raising much needed funds for the FORME Charity, that finances continued research into The Perrin Technique.

We thank her and her team at The Bridgeman Centre for their fantastic effort once again!



Last month, Dr Perrin held a diagnostic and treatment training course at the Osteopathie Schule Deutschland GmbH in Hamburg. 

He was ably assisted by licensed Perrin Practitioner, and member of the Advanced Practitioner course, Rakhee Mediratta. It was a pleasure to also be joined by existing Perrin Practitioners Michael Kaufmann and Sven Limberg who attended the workshop as a refresher course.

Michael, Sven and Rakhee are pictured above, alongside Dr Ray Perrin at the OSD, Hamburg

As a result, we have four new additions on the map to accompany the growing number of licensed Perrin Practitioners based in Germany! A very warm welcome to:
