Here is my story and passion:
I realized in my early 20’s that I had some reproductive health issues that eventually turned out to be endometriosis. The pain was intense and symptoms unmanageable. Once the diagnosis was made I set out to find solutions to help myself manage.
During my graduate school program I had a thought and theory on how to better serve women that suffered as I did. The wheels were turning and skipping forward a bit Mercier Therapy was born.
During my first marriage I was not able to get pregnant and knew that it was from the endometriosis but at that time I was working in private practice and teaching a lot so I really did not address it to move forward with any medical treatment.
By the time I was married for a second time I was 35 and really wanted to become pregnant. My husband and I were told that I’d need IVF treatment due to the fact that the endometriosis had progressed to an aggressive stage 4. I knew what an IVF cycle could potentially cause and that there would be possible long term side effects to my health, emotional trauma due to a 71% failure rate, and compromise on our marriage and financial difficulties in paying for an expensive treatment that yields very little on the first and second cycles.
I had already written curriculum for Mercier Therapy Professional Training so why hadn’t I asked my trainees to use my therapy on me? Silly. With the next training class I asked each student to work on me and voila…..pregnant for the first time in my life at age 35. I was shocked, amazed and grateful.
My work has touched so many women and I am in awe each time I hear of a pregnancy from a women that may have failed traditional medical treatment or just wanted to work with a more holistic approach. The Mercier protocol helps couples to create their families in a gentle and conscious way.
My life has been blessed but not only with my own outcome but also with the outcomes from other families. This work is truly amazing!
