Would you  like to?

  • treat or prevent urinary incontinence?
  • treat or prevent hernias (inguinal, umbilical, disc)?
  • treat or prevent organ prolapse (uterine, bladder, rectum)?
  • tone the abdominals and reduce waist size (average 8% reduction)?
  • normalize posture and muscle tensions?
  • recover your core after having a baby?
  • increase your abdominal and pelvic floor muscle tone (average 58% increase)
  • improve your sexual function and your ability to orgasm (through less pelvic congestion and increased pelvic blood circulation)?

How can I help you achieve these things?

In February 2013 I completed my training to become a Hypopresive Method Instructor.

The Hypopresive Method, whilst being fairly new in the UK, has been around in Spain and France for the last 30 years and has been constantly tested and developed in a clinical and therapeutic setting over in Europe.  Dr. Marcel Caufriez created the Hypopresive Method – he started developing the techniques in 1980 when he saw that a woman’s uterine prolapse reduced during a vaginal exam when she performed diaphragmatic aspiration.  From here the techniques have developed into a system of physical therapy treatments for various urinary, digestive, and vascular problems, preventative methods, birth facilitation, and performance enhancement.

How does it work?

The idea behind the technique is to train your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to work naturally i.e. to activate involuntarily. So, even when you are not thinking about them they are doing their job – one of their main functions is to support our internal organs and they should also support our back and keep our tummy flat.  Unfortunately, many of us have lost this involuntary control of our pelvic and abdominal muscles leading to various issues such as incontinence, prolapse, hernias, back pain and ‘soft’ abdominals.

The method is basically a series of breathing exercises performed in various postures and whilst this sounds easy enough it is actually a demanding technique with very specific requirements and very different from anything else you will have done before.

How can I learn the technique?
