Natural Fertility in Dallas
Fertility can be emotionally and sometimes financially exhausting with minimal results. Fertility Massage with Merciér Therapy has shown fertility success rates of over 80% pregnancy rates within one year of finishing the therapy program. IVF cycles generally average anywhere from 20%-40% success rates with costs that are typically 4-5 times that of Merciér Therapy. Our Fertility treatments can be used as an alternative to traditional fertility treatments and as a means of increasing the effectiveness of in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Medically Assisted Reproduction Program
– a gentle and very effective approach to a conscious conception
Most clients we see have typically endured more than one IVF cycle to achieve a pregnancy and was unsuccessful. Our treatment program optimizes the female body, particularly the pelvis, to conceive and increases the success of IVF or can be used as an alternative. To schedule an in-person or online infertility consultation, please use the Book Now and find a time that works for you. Infertility in-person or telemedicine consultations range from 60-90 minutes to evaluate your medical history and discuss treatment options and the therapy in detail. If you have any prior lab work please bring those results with you during your consultation.
When would therapy begin?
If you are currently undergoing IVF, our protocol would be initiated/completed prior to the stimulation portion of a medically assisted cycle. This is to help limit your number of cycles. No work will be done during ‘stim’ as it may disrupt the process and over stimulate the ovaries causing cancellation of the cycle. It is crucial to schedule your appointment well in advance of your cycle start. Our ultimate goal is to assist you physically and emotionally so you will enter your cycle with healthy pelvic organs, hormonal balance and a positive state of mind. Dr. Skip will help you create an optimal environment within your pelvis and entire body to ensure a successful first IVF cycle.
You are encouraged to become educated, explore and better understand your own body’s rhythms prior to going through an IVF cycle. The Shared Journey program will help you recognize natural signs of fertility. Building a solid foundation is a healthy non-invasive solution to many fertility problems. We are often surprised so many women come to us with a misunderstanding of signs of fertility as well as relegating to the normality of the concrete/cement-like tension we feel when palpating their abdomen on the first consultation. Our program is woven specifically to meet the needs of the individual clients and offer a great chance at building your families.
Our Natural Fertility Therapy Program: (sans IVF)
Some families choose the Shared Journey Fertility Program as a stand alone regime without undergoing ‘In-Vitro Fertilization’ for many personal reasons as well as potential health implications of other more conventional methods. One of the most common reasons is the little/limited insurance coverage for IUI/IVF (which is very expensive out-of-pocket, costing around $12,000 per attempt) or for those people making the choice to go for a more natural approach to their pregnancies. No matter your choice we are here with you during the entire process.
Overview of the Fertility Therapy:
Your first visit will include a comprehensive history and evaluation of your pelvic organs and hip/lower back mobility. Your forms must be filled out and completed before you arrive at our Dallas fertility clinic. Take time and careful consideration when filling out these documents.
Expect to spend around 90 minutes with us so we will have plenty of time to explain the program. The second visit will start the Shared Journey program and your first pelvic therapy session. Be sure to bring your calendar as we will want to schedule your dates for the remainder of the treatment sessions.
We will be teaching you how to monitor your cycles for LH surge so we encourage you to purchase the Clear Blue ovulation predictor strips with the smiley face. These are the best and most accurate. Plus they are super cool because of the smiley face reading.
You are never alone with this….we are always here to assist you and answer any questions. Being your support through the entire process all the way to a happy and healthy conception. Please contact our office for an initial consultation to see if the Merciér Therapy: Shared Journey Program is right for you.
Home Care for Optimal Fertility
These techniques and recommendations come from years of research, clinical practice and many, many hours of continued medical education since my graduation over a decade ago. By adding one or some of the following into your healthy new lifestyle you will be increasing your body’s natural fertility and overall wellness by reducing the burden on the overtaxed systems in your delicate body.
These techniques discussed below have been selected for the efficacy, safety and ease of use at home. Some of them may seem somewhat unusual if you are new to the more traditional methods of healing. We have used them for many years with great success and their inclusion in Dr. Skip’s repertoire is not taken lightly. Your protocol should be tailored for your issues specifically, but these are some general things, if done correctly, that are very safe. Please use your best judgment and be sure to read my disclaimer prior to making any decisions – and be sure to use common sense when/if you employ them, and remember you are doing so of your own choosing and volition.
