Dr. Chikly put together quite an exceptional method for fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS - called ME in the UK), that is revolutionizing the diagnostic and treatment of these conditions.
CFS and FM share the commonalities of reduced midbrain and cortical blood flow, autonomic dysfunction, and abnormal lymphatic flow.
There is a need for non-invasive and effective treatment for the growing population of people suffering from these conditions.
These disorders have to be treated with a specific protocol in order not to precipitate an aggravation of the condition
Dr. Perrin's approach was voted “the best manual technique for ME” by the members of the UK ME Association (2010) and “A cost effective way to diagnose ME” by the British Parliamentary Inquiry (2006).
ASSESSMENT: The assessment will be done over 6 specific key lesions (3 in the front of the body, 3 in the back) + "limbic" structures in the brain for the possible emotional causes of CFS/FM, a protocol developed by Dr. Chikly. We will present one of the specific points of Dr. Perrin for these conditions. Dr. Perrin's points have been the subject of a preclinical study and are now under scientific investigation by the National Health Service (an equivalent of the US NIH) at Lancashire University, UK.
TREATMENT: The treatment will be principally a blend of Dr. Chikly’s lymph and brain techniques. The lymph techniques will include superficial and deeper lymph, mapping and rerouting, and some specific viscera work using a lympho-fascia release approach (fluid dynamics) to viscera such as the heart, stomach, pancreas, liver, etc. The brain techniques will include the brainstem, pons, mesencephalon, etc. Specific sacrum intra- or inter-osseous techniques will be also presented.
Once mastered, this is a 20 to 30-minute hands-on treatment for chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. It may be repeated 2-3 times to typically reduce the majority of symptoms.
MS with important fatigue can present the same specific points during the manual assessment and can typically respond to the same treatment protocol.
Many cases of infectious mononucleosis (mono) also respond very well to this treatment.
Bring comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Some of these approaches require touching exposed skin, we encourage you to bring a bath towel, lab clothes, and appropriate undergarments so that you are comfortable.
Short fingernails are required for some techniques.
Due to the potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class.
