It typically starts with cramps and pain. A women’s first awareness to her pelvic and sexual organs typically begin when her menstruation begins. Frequently that is accompanied by cramps, pain and bloating. What then ensues is an attempt to deaden the sensation to our pelvis. This self-preserving technique seems to work through most of our teen and young adult years. We take pain meds, ignore the problem, and maybe take birth control to help deal with pain and the possible irregularity of our cycles.
We ignore our pelvis and the organs within and only pay them mind in a negative way when we are tired of cramping or bleeding.
But now you’ve reached the age where you want to get pregnant. And perhaps it hasn’t been as easy as you thought it was going to be and suddenly you’re forced to bring awareness to our pelvis and the organs within. We again associate our reproductive organs with negativity. Why aren’t the organs working like they are supposed to? Why does it seem that you will need every intervention to become pregnant? Why does this hurt so much?
Suddenly, we become acutely aware of what doesn’t seem to be doing its job. But how do we fix the function? How can we coax our ovaries and uterus to open up, cycle naturally and ultimately, grow life? Is it possible to do this without medical intervention?
Mercier Therapy aims to change both the function and the negative associations. By manipulating the tissues, blood flow, scar tissue and pelvic tension are all addressed. The treatment begins with warming the tissues, evaluating your organ position, and ultimately, enhancing blood flow and function. Your Mercier Therapist has two goals: one psychological and one physical. The therapy aims to develop a healthy awareness of your reproductive organs and, through visceral manipulation, heal and prepare the uterus for conception.
