Mercier Therapy | Gynovisceral Manipulative Bodywork

Mercier Therapy is a abdominal internal organs bodywork modality created by Dr. Jennifer Mercier. It’s a non-invasive deep pelvic organ visceral manipulative technique (Gyno-visceral) for women to mobilize the reproductive organs, to restore a healthy blood flow and optimal pelvic organ function.

The goal of the Mercier treatment is to remove organ restrictions and restore movement between the organs and surrounding structures to enhance their natural function. This gentle and non-invasive technique is beneficial for women of all ages.

Mercier Therapy Treatment

Treatments are typically given by healthcare professionals, such as midwives, massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, nurse practitioners, and physicians, and the like. Mercier Therapy is generally not a one-time event. One hour sessions are repeated a few times within a 1 to 6 week period in which the abdominal area is treated to realize the goal of releasing organ and tissue restrictions.

Mercier Therapy can be used as is, stand-alone, or as a complementary treatment in conjunction with, for instance, medical treatments like IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) or IVF (In Vitro Fertilization).
