How our Postnatal Physiotherapist in London and the Hypopressive method help me after pregnancy?

The post-natal period is a crucial time period for women from a gynaecologic and urological perspective as well as posturally and aesthetically. Typical hormonal changes and gaining weight can put the female body and mind under enormous straight, and in order to relieve this, it’s important for women to start exercising again in a safe manner, and rehabilitating pelvic, back and abdominal muscles to give you back your confidence and fitness.

Why hypopressive gymnastic is so efficient for women?

Post partum period is very important for women from a gynaecologic and urology point of view as well as for posture and aesthetic.
Pregnancy with its weight gain and hormonal changes puts the female body under enormous strain. Women must rehabilitate pelvic muscles,back and abdominals in order to start exercising again in a safe manner.
After giving birth, some women will suffer from abdominal diastasis(stretching of connective tissues), which makes it difficult to start exercising again for it could worsen the symptoms. The Hypopressive Method allows a safe rehabilitation of the pelvic muscles, abdominals and toning. Other types of rehabilitation require working muscles by muscles and might be armful to the general body static.

It does, by extension, improve sexual sensation and ability for sexual pleasure thus 
contributing in a better quality of life for new mothers.

The Hypopressive method can help you both with getting back into shape, and preventing certain post-natal conditions, making sure that time with your new born baby is stress free and enjoyable. The conditions listed below all respond extremely well to the Hypopressive method.

Abdominal diastasis – many women will suffer from this condition after pregnancy. It is a stretching of the connective tissues, which can make it difficult to start exercising again, in case the symptoms worsen (stretching of connective tissues), which makes it difficult to start exercising again for it could worsen the symptoms

Bladder issuesback pain, incognito or loss of sexual sensation ––these symptoms can all be relieved by one of our Physiotherapists using the Hypopressive method for rehabilitation of the pelvic muscles, giving you a much better quality of life

How does the Hypopressive method or Hypopressive Gymnastics work?

After exhalation, the breath is held and maintained for a few seconds, which causes involuntary contractions from the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal wallThe method is repeated and held with different postures and variations.
