Mercier Therapy

A gentle and extremely effective approach to a conscious conception

Whether you are preparing for pregnancy or experiencing fertility challenges, our holistic approach can support you in optimizing your fertility. Mercier Therapy {MT} is a safe, gentle, and external pelvic visceral manipulation technique designed to restore the health and well-being of the pelvis by addressing scar tissue, adhesions, malalignment or decreased mobility of the pelvic and reproductive structures. Mercier Therapy provides an integrative and comprehensive approach for a variety of pelvic issues for women of all ages.

 The goal of Mercier Therapy is to restore mobility and proper blood flow to the pelvic organs which optimizes their function. It can be used as a stand alone therapy at any time. It may also be used as an adjunct to other assisted reproductive technology techniques (ART) such as IUI or IVF. The therapy protocol is started and finished prior to the stimulation portion of a medically assisted cycle. Therapy is typically 6 sessions performed over a period of 4-6 weeks. *
 

Mercier Therapy concluded a four year, evidence based research study in September 2012, indicating an 83 percent pregnancy success rate.
The abstract, “Mercier Therapy Helps Infertile Women Achieve Pregnancy” was published in the spring 2013 edition of Midwifery Today.

• Sessions may be broken up in various ways if necessary.
For example, 4 days of 90-minute sessions may be done to fit the work in prior to a stimulated cycle if pairing The Shared Journey Fertility Program™ with IVF or IUI.
This is also done for women traveling from out of town.
