Mercier Therapy is a soft tissue visceral manipulative therapy technique used to help restore the health and general well-being within the female pelvis and abdominal viscera. This deep, gyno-visceral manipulation was created to help you to reconnect to your body and to allow your pelvis and abdomen, a highly emotional space, to re-open to healing and balance. Chronic pelvic pain can be debilitating and difficult to handle on a daily basis. Typically pelvic pain can occur within the structures surrounding the female reproductive organs such as the urinary bladder, bowel, musculature, ligaments, and bones. Also, pain could be coming from the reproductive organs themselves.
Women who have dealt with any of the following may suffer from pelvic pain: Pelvic surgery or conditions of any kind such as:
- laparoscopy, laparotomy, D&C, LEEP, abortion, cystocele or rectocele repair, c-section, bladder sling, or hysterectomy
- Vaginal childbirth
- Sexual abuse trauma
- Urinary tract or yeast infection
- Painful periods
Mercier Therapy for pelvic pain is done over a period of 4-6 weeks and is done in 6 individual sessions at 60 minutes per session. This visceral manipulative technique is done abdominally and requires NO internal/vaginal work. Appropriate referral to an Uro/Gyn Physician can be given for further evaluation.
