In addition to Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine, I also offer Mercier Therapy (MT). MT is a gentle pelvic visceral manipulation technique created to optimize your reproductive health. MT addresses adhesions, scar tissue and decreased mobility of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is beneficial for women of all ages facing fertility challenges, pelvic pain, gynecological surgery recovery, or having gone through traumatic birth experiences. Mercier Therapy can be used as a stand alone regimen or in preparation for a medically assisted cycle such as IUI or IVF.
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.
Mercier Therapy is most beneficial when 6 hours of treatment is completed within a 6 week period. My Mercier Therapy sessions are effective and relaxing combining Eastern Medicine education, Mercier Therapy training, and massage therapy experience. Patients report feeling a sense of wellbeing and connection to their reproductive health. MT may also be combined beautifully with acupuncture sessions, creating a holistic effect by addressing both physical and emotional health. Creating a better environment prior to conception will have lasting benefits throughout your pregnancy.
