    Abstract/Description

    This two phase, mixed methods study, developed and evaluated the effectiveness of a model for teaching the neuromuscular approach (NMA) to human movement. From an original volunteer sample of 74 students, 33 completed the 15-week (Phase 1) moving and handling training which demonstrated that the model resulted in significant change (p<0.05) in movement patterns and detection of potentially hazardous postures. Phase 2, using 24 students, showed that the model worked successfully (95% positive evaluation) in the context of a Complementary Therapies degree programme.
