Highland Neuromuscular Movement Services (HNMS) is based in Forres, Morayshire and operated by Gary Murison. HNMS provides education, advice and Health Promotion services throughout the UK.
HNMS adopts and promotes the Neuromuscular Approach to Human Movement (NMAHM)®, which can be traced back to the early 1930's and the work of T. McClurg Anderson. It was first authored by Vasey & Crozier, and more recently developed by Crozier & Cozens
My career has spanned many years of working in the field of mental health nursing (RMN), care management, communications and training management & facilitation. Throughout these years I have undertaken many post-graduate training courses and workshops - ranging from Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy to Person Centred Planning. I am a qualified SVQ Assessor (D32/33) and Managing Violence & Aggression trainer.
My professional interests include: person-centred planning, effective communications, human behaviours, standard writing/audit, IT, and the development and facilitation of needs-based training packages.
In 1992 I was successful in gaining a study tour grant from the National Board of Nursing and Midwifery (NBS) Scotland, to spend eight weeks in two centre's of excellence in California, studying Brain Injury Rehabilitation.
In 2003 I undertook the university-accredited, Level 3 Neuromuscular Approach to Human Movement (NMAHM)®course, provided by MovES Ltd. I achieved the Level 3 qualification approximately 18 months later. The course very much changed my outlook and understanding of how efficient movement is an essential element in achieving good health and well-being. Since completing the course I have concentrated my efforts, both personal and business, towards developing my knowledge, skills and competency in understanding human movement and its effects. I am also involved in a working group aiming to take the Neuromuscular Approach to Human Movement forward, through the development of MANAS - MovES Academy of Neuromuscular Approach Studies, as well as working through my Level 4 NMAHM® accreditation.
