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.

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.
A 6-hour online course using self-initiated reflex patterns in a standing or sitting position to assist with learning, planning, and the development of inner control are some of the most important functions of the brain and are the basis of successful learning. The development of academic skills depends on the appropriate development of the brainstem and sensorimotor integration. The early movements, prime motor and reflex patterns offered in this class is the foundation of human development. Successful formation of these abilities ultimately depends upon the physiological maturation of the brainstem (extrapyramidal nerve net) for movement, behavioral and learning challenges often result when reflex patterns do not develop properly, are immature, and / or are poorly integrated in comparison with typical patterns of development. In addition, primary reflex patterns may not function appropriately following significant life stressors and / or trauma that children and adults may experience. In fact, data collected from thousands of MNRI sessions over the past 20 years has demonstrated that as the number of non-integrated primary motor reflex patterns in neurotypical children increase, the number and severity of learning challenges correspondingly increase. This class explores the role primary movements and reflexes play in developing higher order cognitive functions including focusing, long-term memory, rational thinking, planning, decision-making, and behavioral and emotional regulation.
