“The Perrin Technique may be a missing piece to the puzzle of how to treat these devastating diseases.”

Elizabeth Pasquale, owner of Well On The Way, in White Plains and Ossining, is offering a new treatment for two common and potentially related illnesses, Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome. “Both Lyme and CFS can be devastating multi-system diseases that cause energy depletion on a cellular level and severe physical and cognitive limitations,” Pasquale says. “The Perrin Technique may be a missing piece to the puzzle of how to treat these devastating diseases.”
Also referred to as myalgicencephalomyelitis (ME), CFS is a complex chronic illness that affects about 2.5 million Americans, primarily women. Frequently it is associated with Lyme disease.
The Perrin Technique for the diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME was introduced by Dr. Raymond Perrin in 1989. Perrin, an osteopath and the founder and director of the Perrin Clinic in Manchester, United Kingdom, developed this treatment after working with more than 2,000 patients for more than 29 years. Pasquale is one of the few US practitioners certified in the technique. She is also a licensed massage therapist, craniosacral therapist and specialist in Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
“Dr. Perrin has observed repeated physical patterns among CFS/ME sufferers that can’t be pure coincidence, including spinal irregularities, sore throat and tender lymph nodes,” Pasquale says. “The body’s drainage systems in the brain and the spine aren’t working well enough, and toxins build up and cause dramatic deterioration of health. With the Perrin Technique, toxins begin to drain away, healthy flow is stimulated and the patient gradually returns to health.”
