Hypopressive Abdominal Gymnastics (GAH)
The therapeutic version of the technique is used in prevention and re-education, in the absence of a real pathology, and in the fields of physiotherapy and obstetrics in the case of pathology.
AHG is effective in the first postpartum phase, to reposition the internal organs and for the treatment of dysfunction, often related to the period of gestation, such as diastasis recti, incontinence, hernias and prolapses.
It favours pelvic-perineal and lower limb vascularisation, contributing powerfully to lymphatic drainage and to a significant reduction in the waistline.
Lengthening of deep postural muscles decompresses intervertebral discs, thus reducing pain originating in compression, preventing the onset and development of prolapses and hernias.
The technique, built on the basis of scientific evidence, offers particular postures that aim at the relaxation of the diaphragm, the selective activation of particular hypopressive muscle areas and the consequent relaxation of hyperpressive antagonistic areas. The reduction in intra-abdominal pressure encouraged by the postures is amplified by breathing techniques that are an integral part of the work.
We suggest an initial 2 sessions a week, to then reach up to 5 between classes in the studio and self-managed work at home.
Why choose Hypopressive Abdominal Gymnastics (GAH)
GAH, the therapeutic version of the Hipopressive technique, is essentially based on specific postures, enhanced by controlled apnea.
This practice can be associated with a particular breathing called diaphragmatic aspiration, with a rib opening during the expiratory phase, which has a hyper vascularizing action on the legs and abdomen, improves venous and lymphatic drainage and draws up the pelvic organs.
The indications, at a preventive and adapted level are post-partum recovery, abdominal diastasis, hernias, incontinence (urinary and fecal) prolapses.
