What Do Hypopressives Do?

Hypopressives are not just another fitness trend; they are a revolutionary approach to improving core strength, pelvic floor function, and overall body wellness. Particularly for those experiencing symptoms of prolapse, hypopressives offer a targeted, effective solution. But what do they actually do? And how can you integrate them into your wellness routine?

1. Understanding Hypopressives

At its core, hypopressives involve a series of postural and breathing techniques. These exercises lead to a reduction in intra-abdominal pressure, hence the name ‘hypo’ (meaning ‘low’) and ‘pressives’ (related to pressure). They provide a holistic approach to body wellness, targeting the core, pelvic floor, and even the postural muscles. If you’re new to this technique, our “What are Hypopressives” video offers an insightful introduction.

2. Addressing Prolapse Symptoms

One of the standout benefits of hypopressives is their ability to alleviate symptoms of prolapse. Prolapse occurs when organs, such as the uterus, bladder, or rectum, descend into the vaginal canal due to weakened support structures. Traditional exercises might increase intra-abdominal pressure, exacerbating the problem. Hypopressives, however, reduce this pressure, offering relief and fortifying the pelvic floor. The outcome? Improved control, reduced discomfort, and enhanced quality of life.
