~ A GENTLE YET VERY EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO A CONSCIOUS CONCEPTION ~
Thank you for being a proactive partner concerning your fertility care options.
Mercier Therapy is a soft tissue visceral manipulation therapy technique used to help and restore the health and general well being of the female pelvis. The goal of Mercier Therapy pelvic treatment is to decrease adhesions in and around organs, ligaments, muscles, joints and support structures of the pelvis, abdomen, hips and low back.
The Shared Journey Fertility Program was developed by Dr. Jennifer Mercier - an experienced integrative health care professional, educator and author as a gentle, safe and effective program to help with your fertility challenges.
Mercier Therapy completed an on-going 4 year medical study to show an 83% pregnancy success rate within one year of finishing the Shared Journey Program. The study concluded in September 2012 and was published in Midwifery Today ~ Spring 2013.
