Mercier Therapy for Pelvic Pain
Restore the health and general well-being within the female pelvis
Mercier Therapy is a soft tissue visceral manipulative therapy technique used to help restore the health and general well being within the female pelvis.
This gentle and noninvasive technique was created to help you reconnect to your divine feminine and to allow your pelvis, 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. Usually with pelvic pain there is a combination of bowel and bladder dysfunction that accompanies the pain as well.
1 in 4 women experience chronic pelvic pain. 10-55% of women ages 15-64 experience urinary incontinence.
