All sessions are run by Alice Housman, Level 1 Trainer in the Hypopressives Method. I attended a Hypopressives Trainers Course in July 2018.

General Disclaimer

  • All products, services and written material are intended for general education and information purposes only, and are not intended as, and do not take the place of medical or professional advice. 

  • I do not provide any medical advise, diagnosis, treatment or medical service.

  • If you have any concerns about any medical matter, you should consult your doctor or other professional as soon as possible.

  • The information I provide on the website is for educational purposes only, and any opinion expressed by myself in my blog or social media posts are subjective in nature. However, I always strive to provide up to date information, and draw from experiences in my own personal life, my professional practice as a nurse and up-to-date research. However, you must not rely on this information.

  • The Hypopressives programme usually takes between 8 and 10 weeks - however, some individuals with long term problems or who have had previous surgery, may take longer to progress through the programme. Before you start the programme, I will discuss expectations with you.

  • Always seek medical advice before embarking on any exercise programme. 

  • Before starting a Hypopressives programme, you (the client) must have completed the health screening tool to assess general suitability for Hypopressives. However, ultimate responsibility in assessing the suitability and safety of Hypopressives rests upon you, the client. If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the contraindications, or have any other health concerns, you may or may not have stated, then it is up to you to get the necessary approval from a medical professional to start the programme. 

  • You are responsible for updating me, Alice Housman with any changes to your health, which may or may not affect the suitability of the Hypopressives programme undertaken.

  • I will provide you with support and guidance, to help you achieve steady results through the programme. The online material is designed to support you through the programme.  The success of the programme will depend on factors including your motivation, time commitment and participation. 

  • Participation in the Hypopressives Programme by yourself, is undertaken with the understanding that no litigation or legal action whatsoever will be initiated, and that no form of compensation or reimbursement or refund will be claimed or applied for at any time now or in the future against Alice Housman, under any circumstances whatsoever. 

  • I use feedback from former or current clients to demonstrate what can be achieved through the Programme, however, there is no guarantee that you will achieve the same results, but I hope you will achieve results that you are pleased with.

  • In using the programme, you acknowledge there is an inherent risk in any fitness routine, and there is no guarantee that you will fully resolve your issues or improve your symptoms significantly as a result of purchasing or completing the Programme.

  • Feedback from you, the client, regarding symptom improvement during the programme will be measured using research based questionnaires - the first is completed at the start of the programme and the same questionnaire is completed at the end of the programme. The result of these are used by myself as anonymised data to provide information, on social media and at events on the effectiveness of the Hypopressives technique. This is purely in the form of symptom and quality of life improvement data collection. I will ask for your written permission. If you do not wish for you results to be included - please inform me by email at alice@alicehousman.co.uk

  • Any feedback given after the course has ended, will be published with your permission, using your first name as a reference.
