At Kenko, we assist with
Natural Fertility Preparation & improve the success
of IVF, IUI and other technologies.
You and your partner may have been trying to conceive naturally, or already gone through Assisted Reproduction Technologies (ART) such as IVF or IUI without success.
Whatever your path,
it is important not to lose hope, and know you are not alone.
Your fertility journey doesn’t have to end with an unsuccessful medically assisted cycle. While treatments like IVF and IUI do have some success, they can take a major toll on a woman's body.
The Shared Journey Fertility program is designed to prepare your body for conception, whether a medically assisted cycle or natural conception, supporting your body as you move through each phase of your fertility journey.
The Shared Journey Fertility Program provides a gentle, non invasive, and holistic approach to infertility.
Nutrition, stress, environment, and physical activity all play a role in the probability of conception.
This program prepares your body for pregnancy by offering a holistic approach to women's health.
Organ function is dependent on blood flow. Fresh blood coming into an organ carries oxygen and the nutrients required for proper function and optimal health. The circulatory system then carries out the waste and toxins. The constant movement and filtering of blood is crucial as organs and other body structures would eventually suffer, and functionality would be inhibited.
If any of the vital organs of reproduction aren't getting sufficient blood flow, they won't function optimally. In the same way that we massage muscles to restore circulation and break down adhesions, we can mobilize the reproductive organs to restore blood flow, and encourage optimal functioning to promote a healthy conception and successful pregnancy.
Did you know?
Many women who complete the Shared Journey Fertility Program have undergone pelvic surgery or procedures that have resulted in creating adhesive-like scar tissue; Mobilizing the female reproductive organs assists the body's natural ability to release restrictions and adhesions that cause pain and dysfunction by bringing blood flow to the area and promoting optimal function.
The Mercier Therapy protocol is included
in the Shared Journey Fertility Program.
It is a sequence of techniques designed to encourage optimal placement of the reproductive organs, enhance circulation, and bring overall balance to the reproductive system.
allows for a natural conception while focusing on a holistic approach to pelvic organ health. A four year evidence based research study on the Mercier Therapy protocol found an
83% success rate.
