Fertility challenges, pelvic pain, and post surgery scar tissue are just a few of the conditions that can be addressed with Mercier Therapy. This soft tissue visceral manipulation technique is beneficial for women of all ages. Mercier Therapy is a gentle and noninvasive approach that improves the mobility of the reproductive structures, optimizing health and wellbeing within the female pelvis.
The female pelvis is a very complex and sacred structure that includes the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. These are held in place by various tendons and require movement for optimum health. The structures within the pelvis can develop adhesions over time which prevent movement and proper blood flow. The adhesions can be caused from gynecological issues, surgery, and trauma. Just like stretching our external body to stay flexible, it is important to break up adhesions in the pelvis to keep it flexible and in optimal health. Increased blood flow improves circulation and hormone production, decreases pain, and reduces scar tissue.
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control reports assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vetro fertilization (IVF), have less than a 30 percent success rate? Due to this low rate women are in need of a successful treatment option that can be used alone or in addition to ART. An evidence based research study proved Mercier Therapy to have an 83 percent pregnancy success rate! The abstract entitled, “Mercier Therapy Helps Infertile Women Achieve Pregnancy” was published in the spring 2013 edition of the Midwifery Today journal. Mercier therapy also combines beautifully with other complimentary therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Stay tuned for more information on how Mercier Therapy and Acupuncture is the perfect combination, addressing both the physical and emotional wellbeing of your fertility journey.
