The Alexander Technique
Guided self help that can bring positive change to our lives
The Alexander Technique works on the premise that there is a relationship between the head, neck, and back that FM Alexander called the Primary Control, which as children we use automatically but that with time and poor habits becomes compromised.
"The class not only helped me overcome a persistent back problem but proved to be a revelation in how to live fully, freely and authentically. Life changing." - Kim
The Alexander technique gives us choice when there was only automatic response.
It helps us recognise our automatic poor habits and heightens our conscious awareness of ourselves and surroundings so that we CAN choose how we move and respond.
Learning the technique helps us
* Relieve pain and stress
* Improve posture
* Breathe with greater ease
* Find more freedom of movement in everyday activities
Deborah Cranston MSTAT CNHC has been teaching the Alexander Technique for over twenty years.
Using subtle hand contact, Deborah conveys to her pupils new ways of moving in activity.
Through repeated actions such as sitting, standing and walking, pupils become aware of their unhelpful habits and learn to override them using a new lighter approach.
Testimonials from class attendees:
“I have suffered with back problems on and off for years and tried everything. Started Deborah’s classes last January and have loved them. You learn how and why your body moves, it all makes sense and I am getting better, it really works. It’s not a quick fix and takes time and I am glad I am learning these things now to help me in later life”. - Marie
"I am so glad that I decided to join your class and learn about the Alexander Technique. I am finding it enjoyable, interesting, and although I have been attending for only a short time I do believe that learning this Technique will have a positive and beneficial effect on my physical well-being. The class is friendly and everything is explained to us very clearly – what more could one ask." - Barbara
