The creator of the Hypopressive Abdominal Technique (HAT), Marcel Caufriez (physiotherapist), developed this technique in the course of his research on urinary incontinence related to abdominal efforts and the poor distribution of the pressures that occurs in the abdomen causing the relaxation of the pelvic floor and the deep musculature of the abdomen.

In addition to its therapeutic utility in the urogynecological field, hypopressive techniques produce other important benefits for those who practice them:

  • Reflex power of the perineum muscles
  • Strengthens the deep abdominals, which are the muscles that mark the waist and stabilize the lumbar spine
  • Decompresses the lymph nodes of the pelvis, preventing the legs from swelling and feeling heaviness
  • Strengthens the muscles of the vagina, bladder, anus and rectum, preventing incontinence and improving sexual function
  • Prevents the descent of the pelvic organs, or prevents the descent from progressing
  • Strengthens muscle chains that participate in posture, improving postural correction

The HAT is indicated for almost any person, male or female, but especially in cases of:

  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Post-partum recovery
  • Menopausal period
  • Abdominal weakness
  • Abdominal pain, slow intestinal transit or constipation
  • After abdominal or gynecological surgery
  • Drop of matrix, bladder or rectum
