Mercier Therapy for Fertility
What is Mercier Therapy?
Developed by Jennifer Mercier, ND, Ph. D. L.M.T., Mercier Therapy is a deep pelvic organ visceral manipulation technique that decreases pelvic adhesions and organ restrictions, breaks down scar tissue, restores blood flow and circulation to the reproductive organs, increases mobility and brings these organs back to optimal natural function.
Recent studies indicate that many causes of infertility of unknown origin may be mechanical in nature. Mercier Therapy addresses these mechanical issues via hands on organ manipulation techniques. Just as one would receive massage to the neck or back to help loosen tightness in the muscles, we can lessen restrictions between organs, muscles, fascia and skin that may be preventing the reproductive organs from working optimally.
Anyone who has had an injury may develop tissue restrictions in any part of the body independent of where the injury was. If you've ever fallen on your tailbone, suffered whiplash or had the wind knocked out of you for example, you may have tissue restrictions deep inside. These tissue restrictions could be preventing you from being able to ovulate normally, prevent the egg from travelling through the Fallopian Tubes correctly, or have caused the uterus to be tilted one way or another that prevents normal function of the organ with the result being difficulty conceiving. By loosening restrictions and increasing blood flow to the organs, your pelvis is brought back to balance and Nature can do her thing.
What conditions can Mercier Therapy help?
Mercier Therapy can help treat infertility/low ovarian reserve/high FSH, endometriosis, PCOS, amenorrhea/dysmenorrhea, annovulation, sexual function, pelvic surgical scar tissue, bladder and GI issues, and pelvic or hip injuries.
How does the Mercier Therapy Program work?
The program is custom tailored to each individual woman's situation and will be discussed in further detail at a consultation.
During the consult, a full medical history will be obtained and a pelvic organ mobility evaluation will be done. I will also look at your overall body alignment which includes watching you move and breathe.
When scheduling your consult, please make sure to allow 60-90 minutes and bring any past medical records that may be helpful when discussing your history.
Our fertility program is 6 weeks in length and can be used as a stand alone regime or in preparation for a more medically assisted cycle such as IUI or IVF. We highly recommend that you prepare your body properly prior to starting any medically assisted fertility cycle to help insure a successful first cycle. The Shared Journey can be completed in time for your stim start.
A stand alone cycle, without medical assistance, is what is most natural and primal for your body. You will be guided to monitor your own ovulatory cycle and will receive our help for up to one year after finishing your therapy with us.
