The Mercier Therapy Shared Fertility Program is 6 weeks in length and can be used as a stand alone regimen or in preparation for a more medically assisted cycle such as IUI or IVF.  We highly recommend that you prepare your body properly prior to starting any medically assisted fertility cycle to help insure a successful first cycle.  The Shared Journey can be completed in time for your stim start.

As a stand alone cycle without assistance is what is most natural and primal for your body.  You will be guided to monitor your own ovulatory cycle along with our help for up to one year after finishing your therapy with us.

The program is custom tailored to each individual woman's situation and will be discussed in further detail during the initial consultation.

When scheduling your consult please make sure to allow 60-90 minutes and bring any past medical records that may be helpful when discussing your history.  During the consult a full medical history will be obtained as well as a pelvic mobility evaluation will be done.

Mercier Therapy is a deep pelvic organ visceral manipulation modality.  When increasing mobility, whether your shoulder joint or your uterus, you're optimizing the true function of the area and helping to return blood flow, which is therapeutic.  When choosing to start the SJFP you'll receive 6 full hours of Mercier Therapy broken down into 1 hour intervals per week for 6 weeks. 

For women coming in from a state or country other than Michigan we can finish your therapy within an intensive 4 day weekend.
