On 24th June Brian Morrey, whose daughter has ME, is taking on ‘The Frog Whitton’ (the UK’s ultimate swim-cycle challenge) to raise money for F.O.R.M.E. – the charity that helps fund research into osteopathic techniques for ME/CFS such as The Perrin Technique. On the fundraising page, Brian gives special thanks to those at The Perrin Clinic: Elaine, Ray, Sylveen, Ian and Antoinette.

“In May 2018, this disease affected my 18 year old daughter and life changed dramatically. Fast forward to 2023 and now at 23 yrs old we have a far better quality of life for her… The use of osteopathic techniques appears to be transforming the lives of people living with this debilitating condition, but research into this can only be done through the generosity of fundraising events.


The Frog Whitton route starts and finishes in Grasmere, Cumbria, with a total distance of 102 miles – 96 miles of cycling and 6 miles of swimming!

We hope you will share Brian’s challenge and support his fundraising if you are able to:




“Viral waste products must be secreted or they recirculate, which is why anyone with Long Covid should also look into the osteopathic Perrin Technique.”

Helen Kirwan-Taylor

These were the words of journalist Helen Kirwan-Taylor in an article published on the MailOnline and in the 21st May edition of YOU Magazine. Helen states how she has been battling Long Covid since 2020 and shares her experience of the many avenues she’s tried on her recovery journey.

 “Dr Raymond Perrin believes that Long Covid and ME sufferers do not detoxify properly.”

Helen Kirwan-Taylor

Helen shared on her social media pages that she has started to see Perrin Practitioner Rakhee, adding “After many months of trying, I have finally seen the extraordinary Rakhee Mediratta… I responded quickly to her able fingers which is good but this is a long process”

And whilst the original article itself (link here) focuses on a specialised Wellness Clinic in Spain, it’s another example of The Perrin Technique continuing to be highlighted in association with Long Covid.



A huge congratulations to Dr Ruby Tam who has joined the Scientific and Medical Advisory Board of ME Action!

Dr Tam, who has been a staunch advocate for affordable and quality care for ME/CFS patients, was invited to join the board to serve alongside other outstanding physicians and medical professionals.

The Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (seen here) will keep ME Action up-to-date on the latest research and care for people with ME and other complex chronic conditions. 



The training workshop in Long Island, NY at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine was a huge success with 10 new Perrin Technique Practitioners licenced in the USA as well as 2 in Canada!

It’s a pleasure to welcome Jordan Keys, Director of the Osteopathic Medicine Center, and Sheldon Yao, who serves as Chair of the Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, to the global Perrin network.

As well as Jordan and Sheldon, the other Practitioners based in America were either NYIT faculty members or visiting osteopaths / physical therapists from New York or nearby states. They include:

Danielle Astarita

Jena Blackwood

Joe Simone

Lisa Preston

Nihir Shah

Patricia Kooyman

Sylvia Silberman

To Li

The NYIT class also included the following Canadian osteopaths who flew down from Montreal:

Sonia Léveillée 

Josiane Sorel 

It’s fantastic to have them on board, we welcome them all! Bienvenue a la Famille!

The two day event was organised by Jordan and Sheldon and their team at NYIT and we thank them all especially Jordan who worked really hard to make this first (of hopefully many) NYIT workshops such a success!

Pictured above amongst the workshop class is Trish Meegan from Rhode Island, who trained as a Perrin Practitioner in Phoenix the month before and volunteered to travel to Long Island to model for the treatment at the NYIT workshop. Thanks Trish for literally going the extra mile and helping to train others! 

Flying in from San Francisco to help in the practical training was osteopathic physician Sean Moloney who teaches at the osteopathic college in California. Sean is part of the first Advanced Perrin Technique Practitioner class due to qualify at the end of this year. A huge thank you to all involved!



In April, Ray Perrin was interviewed by Raelan Agle who wanted to find out more about The Perrin Technique. 

Raelan is the author of Finding Freedom: Escaping from the Prison of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and has a popular YouTube channel where she’s passionate about sharing ME/CFS recovery information with others.

The interview has been well received by viewers, with many sharing just how much the scientific explanation behind the technique really resonates with them. To watch the 40-minute interview, see the YouTube video here:

Amongst the fantastic class in Phoenix, Arizona was Dr. Ruby Tam who is a board-certified family-medicine doctor based in Minnesota, USA, and most recently a licensed Perrin Technique Practitioner. 

Dr Tam came across her first ME/CFS patient in 2015 and has since been been vocal about how she wants to devote the rest of her life and career to patients with ME/CFS. Fast forward to the beginning of 2023 and her free virtual clinic kicked into operation!

The ME/CFS Minneapolis Clinic is dedicated to improve healthcare equality to Minnesotans with ME/CFS caused by long-haul COVID, post-viral syndrome, or other physical/mental triggers. It offers free Telehealth visits and in-person Perrin Technique appointments to uninsured and under-insured people with ME/CFS and Long COVID.

This free clinic has since received a Gold rating for meeting the quality standards of The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and Ruby definitely receives a Gold rating from us too!

It has always been our aim that The Perrin Technique can be accessed by all, not just those who are fortunate to afford it. We would like to send our appreciation to Dr Ruby Tam and her ME/CFS Clinic – it is wonderful to hear about the fantastic work you are doing for the community and we are grateful that more ME/CFS patients can have access to help and support, regardless of their financial situation.



As Spring was in full flow in the USA, so was The Perrin Technique workshops. California and Arizona were hosts to the two-day courses for aspiring practitioners to learn the science behind the techniques and the practical skills needed to diagnose and treat patients with ME/CFS, FMS and Long COVID.
