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. The Masgutova Method® is oriented on the stimulation of reflex patterns in order to awaken natural, genetic motor resources, self-regenerating strength of motor memory and sensory-motor coherence. This achievement innately carries the implication of the fulfillment of all potentials within movement abilities and learning skills.

The Mission of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute® Neuro-sensory-motor Reflex Integration, LLC is to provide children and adults reliable knowledge and safe tools for the use of natural, genetic motor resources to facilitate successful neuro-sensory-motor development and joyful learning. 

Course Overview:

The MNRI® Introduction to Reflex Integration two-day course provides the foundation for professionals to understand the importance of primary sensory-motor reflex pattern maturation, why a reflex might be poorly integrated, the impact a non-matured reflex can have, and how MNRI® techniques are designed to integrate these reflexes. Primary sensory-motor reflex patterns emerge along a predictable developmental continuum, with each successive reflex emerging to secure a child’s survival and protection as his system mature and advances. When adequately engaged, each reflex anchors neurologically more deeply a physiological, emotional and psychological sense of security, freeing an infant to focus on exploring, learning, and fully advancing through all stages of reflex maturation which are required for life skills.   It is through this complete integration process that reflex patterns form the foundation for related sensory-motor developmental milestones (sitting up, crawling, walking, etc)  for each of us to reach our full potential over time, anchoring emotional and behavioral regulation, and advancing motor, communication, and cognitive learning. Congenital disorders or traumatic events that occur in utero, at birth, or anytime after birth can interrupt the activation, maturation and integration of a primary sensory-motor reflex pattern.  Depending upon the number of reflexes impacted and the maturational deficits of each impacted reflex, a broad spectrum  of disorders and life challenges can occur. 

This class has been called “The Missing Link” by many Occupational, Physical, Speech and Massage Therapists, and Parents

 

 

The MNRI® Introduction to Reflex Integration course explores:

  •  The general MNRI® Method and the role played by the Dynamic and Postural Reflex Integration Program
  • The progression of primary sensory-motor reflex patterns beginning in utero and continuing through life
  • The role primary infant reflex patterns play in establishing subsequent related sensory-motor reflex schemes and the development of advanced physical-motor,  emotional and behavioral  regulation, communication and cognitive abilities.
  • MNRI® techniques to integrate primary sensory-motor reflex patterns through a subcortical approach
  • How to create MNRI® primary sensory-motor reflex integration programs for individual clients
  • How to incorporate use of MNRI® Introduction to Reflex Integration content into daily client practice

Upon successful completion of the 2-day, 16-hour MNRI® Introduction to Reflex Integration course participants will:

  1. Describe the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration process as the basis for successful development for proper functioning and support of learning processes and self-regulation.
  2. Explain the definition of a reflex and reflex pattern
  3. Explore the concept of reflex integration
  4. Discuss the effects of a non-integrated reflex on the brain-body system
  5. Describe how a reflex is a response to a specific stimulus and how it affects motor responses and the nervous system
  6. Explain how stress and trauma affect the neurosensorimotor response of a reflex
  7. Explore how a matured, integrated reflex can protect an individual and improve stress resilience and protection
  8. Analyze and define the Hand/Arm Reflex Patterns for Robinson Hands Grasp, Hands Pulling, Hands Supporting, Babkin Palmomental (Palm-Mouth)
  9. Demonstrate the effective integrative exercises for Robinson Hands Grasp, Hands Pulling, Hands Supporting, Babkin Palmomental (Palm-Mouth)

10.  Analyze and define the Foot/Leg Reflex Patterns for Babinski, Foot Tendon Guard, Leg Cross Flexion-Extension, Automatic Gait and Bauer Crawling.

11.  Demonstrate the effective integrative exercises for Babinski, Foot Tendon Guard, Leg Cross Flexion-Extension, Automatic Gait and Bauer Crawling.

12.  Analyze and define the Core or Gross Motor Coordination Reflex Patterns for Spinal Galant, Spinal Perez, Trunk Extension, Bauer Crawling.

13.  Demonstrate the effective integrative exercises for Spinal Galant, Spinal Perez, Trunk Extension, Bauer Crawling.

14.  Analyze and define the Reflex Patterns for Trauma, Protection & Survival including Moro Embrace, Fear Paralysis, Hands Supporting

15.  Demonstrate the effective integrative exercises for Moro Embrace, Fear Paralysis, Hands Supporting

16.  Analyze and define the Reflex Patterns for Emotional Stability, Fear, and Depression including Bonding, Spinal Perez, Fear Paralysis, Moro, Trunk Extension, and Landau.

17.  Demonstrate the effective integrative exercises for Bonding, Spinal Perez, Fear Paralysis, Moro, Trunk Extension, and Landau.

18.  Demonstrate how these individual corrective programs can be used to enhance overall emotional, motivational, cognitive and motor challenges in a daily practice.
