< Mercier Therapy for Pelvic Health>

Mercier Therapy is a soft tissue pelvic visceral manipulation technique created by Dr. Jennifer Mercier to help restore the health and general well being within the female pelvis.

 

Pelvic Visceral Manipulation is for women who have adhesions in their reproductive tract. Adhesions act like glue — disrupting the function of affected organs. Visceral Manipulation involves gentle stretching to loosen tightened areas of soft tissue and is continued until the tension is released. The goal is to decrease adhesions in and around the organs, ligaments, muscles, joints and support structures of the pelvis, abdomen, hips and lower back.

 

According to Dr. Mercier's study, this gentle and noninvasive therapy has a success rate of 83% (IVF’s success rate is as low as 20%).

 

Retraining pelvic organs to return to their normal status and function is the common sense approach to improving your pelvic health.

 

Visceral Manipulation has proven to help the following issues

  • Endometriosis
  • Poly cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic Scaring or adhesions from previous surgery
  • Sexual Abuse trauma
  • Persistent pelvic pain
  • Anovulation

  • Fall onto hip, buttocks, or tailbone
  • Hip surgery
