Mercier Therapy is a site specific manual therapy technique to help improve organ mobility and restore blood flow for optimal pelvic function. Mercier Therapy has assisted with High FSH, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Premature Ovarian Failure, Luteal Phase defects, Endometriosis, Autoimmune Infertility, and Recurrent Miscarriage.
We work with women who've endured pelvic surgery (i.e. c-section recovery), sexual trauma, pregnancy loss, miscarriage, failed medically assisted fertility treatments and assisted reproductive technology, pelvic pain, endometriosis, PCOS, and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Our protocol is done once weekly in one hour sessions over a 6 week period. We find that this is plenty of deep pelvic organ visceral manipulation to encourage change within the pelvis. There are cases such as endometriosis that will require maintenance due to its aggressive nature.
The Shared Journey includes the protocol of 6 one-hour-long Mercier Therapy Sessions; Supportive supplements/bio-identical hormone protocol; One year of concurrent cycle monitoring; Follow-up visits to review your journal; Should it become necessary to utilize medically assisted options, we will serve as a liaison for you.
You will receive physical, emotional, & informational support over the 6 weekly one-hour sessions, and then beyond that by monthly visits, text and email.
If a woman is planning to start IVF, we would work with her to prepare but never during the stimulation period; we will work during a suppression. There are no pelvic sessions done during any part of an IVF cycle.
While IVF success hovers around 23%, a 4 year evidence-based study concluded an 83% pregnancy success rate with Mercier Therapy.
