Mercier therapy promotes energy and blood flow within the pelvis, breaks down adhesions, and allows the structures within the pelvis to realign. Mercier improves fertility by improving:
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.
