Today we’d like to introduce you to Dana Sackar.
Dana, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have been a physical therapist for almost 20 years. I have always been passionate about helping others and optimizing health. The birth of my daughter via C-section in 2008 prompted my desire to specialize in Women’s Health. I wanted to help other women who were going through similar post-partum difficulties, as well as women with chronic pelvic pain, digestive issues, infertility, and prenatal care. It has been so rewarding working with this patient population, helping women feel better and getting back to an active lifestyle.
Has it been a smooth road?
It really has. I have been blessed in being accepted to a wonderful community of women at Sweet Pea’s Studio, which specializes in prenatal yoga, childbirth education, and serves families throughout the parenting journey.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Flourish Physical Therapy story. Tell us more about the business.
I am most proud of our fertility success rate. > 80% of the women who finish the Shared Journey Fertility Program go on to become pregnant within 4-8 months. I am a certified Mercier Therapist and perform Mercier Therapy, which is a natural and holistic manual approach to fertility. Through gentle mobilizations of the reproductive organs and pelvic soft tissue, we are able to optimize blood flow and mobility to the uterus and ovaries, in order to restore normal function. In doing so, women who have suffered from infertility for years along with many unsuccessful IVF cycles are able to achieve a healthy pregnancy. For many women, the key is to optimize blood flow in order to wake up the ovaries and improve the quality of the eggs and optimize hormones. We help women who are wanting to get pregnant naturally or prior to starting a medically assisted cycle like IUI or IVF. I have seen many women who have been unsuccessful with IVF, get pregnant with the help of Mercier Therapy. Either way we work to optimize the health of the woman in order to achieve a healthy and successful pregnancy. It warms my heart every time we get positive pregnancy results!
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We plan to continue our one-on-one care, providing the highest quality in order to achieve our patients’ goals. We have already shifted to a private pay practice so we can continue to provide the highest quality of care without restrictions of the insurance industry.
