The Masgutova Method® is a set of programs focused on the restoration and maturation of primary movements, reflexes, coordination systems, skills for optimal performance of natural mechanisms, developmental processes, brain functioning, and sensory-motor integration. You can read more about Reflexes and MNRI HERE.
Watch an overview of how MNRI works
The Mission of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute (SMEI) is to provide health, wellness and educational professionals, parents, and caregivers with non-invasive techniques to address maturational, developmental, and life challenges.
ANATOMY AND NEUROPHYSIOLOGY BASIS OF THE MNRI®
This 24-hour class will give a brief introduction on how anatomy and neurophysiology knowledge is used in the Masgutova Method® programs aimed at effects the functioning of the neurosensorimotor reflex integration used. It also shows the structure of this traditional knowledge in unique application to reflex integration concept

5. Describe the following as part of the lower body Osteology system to support the Masgutova Method:
6. Discuss the Osteology system and its development in utero and infancy with the following:
7. Discuss Arthrology as the science of joints and links of segments of the body and its support for neurosensorimotor reflex integration.
8. Describe the types of joints in the Arthrology systems and their functions in movement system.
9. Explain how ligaments in human body and Ligament Guard Response effect neurosensorimotor reflex integration.

12. Discuss the Thorax connections, rib cage biomechanics and movements as it relates to their role in breathing reflexes functions.
13. Explain the upper limb connections, biomechanics and movements and their effect on the sternoclavicular joint, acromioclavicular joint, shoulder joint, elbow joint, and wrist joints.
14. Explain the Lower limb connections, biomechanics and movements and their effect on the pelvic connections, sacroiliac joint, coxofemoral joint, knee joint, and foot joints.
15. Describe how the Atlas vertebra affects embryologic, and development of joints and motor development.
16. Explain Myology as the science of muscle, fascia, tendons fibers and descending pathways of a reflex circuit.
17. Discuss how Myology effects embryologic development of joints and motor development.
18. Explain how the following are used during reflex integration:

22. Explain how superficial, proprioceptive, interoceptive sensitivity affects pain, protective reflexes and reflex circuits.
23. Discuss the physiology of higher mental functions including behavior, cortex, brain activation, emotions, cognitive functions, executive functions, and conscious and unconscious decision making.
24. Analyze the role of reflex circuit/s in the development of higher mental functions.
