Mercier Therapy for Pelvic Pain
Mercier Therapy is a soft tissue visceral manipulation therapy technique used to help restore the health and general well being within the female pelvis.
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.
Women Who have dealt with any of the following may suffer from pelvic pain:
- Pelvic surgery of any kind such as: laparoscopy, laparotomy,
D&C, LEEP, abortion, cystocele or rectocele repair, c-section, or hysterectomy
- Vaginal childbirth
- Sexual abuse trauma
- Urinary tract or yeast infection
Mercier Therapy for pelvic pain is done over a period of 4-6 weeks and is done in 12 individual sessions at 30 minutes per session. This massage technique is done abdominally and requires NO vaginal work.
