Dr. Kim is certified in Mercier Therapy, a manual, deep massage technique that mobilizes and nurtures your reproductive organs, reduces adhesions, and promotes blood flow throughout your pelvic space. We focus on bringing warmth to your uterus and ovaries, optimizing your muscles, ligaments, and joints, resolving any restrictions, and encouraging coordination among all structures that support your womb, so that it can do what it knows how to do, naturally!Let's Do This!
Pelvic Floor Evaluation
Many factors influence fertility, so we start with a full-pelvic floor evaluation to assess your pelvic health, prior to your 6 fertility sessions, which helps us identify the potential source of barriers to conception and establish the best plan for you.
Deep Tissue Work
MT includes visceral and deep tissue massage to your muscles and fascia that improves blood flow, decreases scar tissue, and helps enhance organ fertility.
Mercier Therapy is all natural and holistic. It can be used on its own to improve fertility wellness, or, in conjunction with IVF or IUI. Having this care before a transfer can improve your odds of conceiving because we’re getting your body’s biological capabilities in sync first, and it has been proven to increase the success rate of IUI or IVF to 87%.
Fertility Challenges are Rough.
Fertility struggles are draining on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels--it's a WHOLE-self process filled with uncertainty, self-doubt, frustration, and grief, and you deserve support, a true understanding of your anatomy and what's going on inside your pelvic space, and guidance about the ways we can encourage your body to do its magic when it doesn’t experience interference. It doesn’t matter where you are on your fertility journey. We can nourish and teach you about your body, so you feel strong and equipped on this windy road.

CLIENT LOVE <3
"I have known Dr. Kim of Powerful Women’s Health for years, and am very grateful to have her in my life as a friend and fellow colleague. I started seeing Dr. Kim for my own health after trying to conceive for almost two years and wrapping up on 8 months of trying medical interventions with my fertility doctor.
When I decided to pause my fertility medications this past December to focus on resetting my body as I prepared for IVF, I sought out physical therapy care from Dr. Kim after learning more about her Mercier Therapy training and the manual techniques she was utilizing to assist with fertility.
Once I started care with Dr. Kim, I saw improvements immediately with my pelvic health - such as less bloating, less gas pain, decreased abdominal wall and pelvic floor tightness and just overall less inflammation.
These changes are just what my body needed as I am now 4 months pregnant and conceived the cycle right after physical therapy care UNMEDICATED!
I’m so grateful for Kim helping my husband and I on our fertility journey, and hope this review can help point someone else in the right direction to receiving amazing results!"
