Masgutova Method

What is the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration - MNRI® Method? 

MNRI's main focus is to help people of all ages reach their optimal readiness for growth and learning through integration of their primary motor reflexes. This method was developed by Dr. Svetlana Masgutova in 1989 and she has helped thousands of children through her hands-on work and research development.

What are Primary Reflexes and why are they important?

Reflexes are
 Involuntary actions that respond to specific stimuli. They mature at different times of our development and work to regulate our bodies both during normal or traumatic situations. These primary reflexes are meant to be accessed during specific times of stress. As we grow, these primary motor reflexes do not disappear, but integrate. When these reflexes are immature or re-appear after a traumatic event, there may be underlying neurological issues that interfere with the individual’s ability to function and learn. 

Balanced and Integrated Reflexes

With the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration - MNRI® Method, the individual is given specific physical stimuli coupled with the correct reflexive response to restore their natural development. Once integrated in the brain, individuals move more purposefully without interference.

How can I help my child?

Home programs are shared parents and caregivers in order to continue the learning so important in a child's life. These "exercises" are specific to the child's needs for further growth and development.
