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.
The MNRI® Family Educational Conference is the most comprehensive MNRI® treatment option available to families. This is currently the only regularly scheduled venue through which families have direct access to Dr. Masgutova. In addition to the expertise of Dr. Masgutova, certified MNRI® Core Specialists from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Russia, travel to the conference location to provide the 6 hours of treatment your child will receive during each scheduled conference day. Early on in the conference, Dr. Masgutova completes an in-depth assessment from which she forms the conference plan that will guide your child’s treatment. The intensive 6-hour days are split into 6 sessions per day; each session focusing on MNRI® techniques related to one of Dr. Masgutova’s many core program courses. While treatment is concentrated and intense, long lunch hours and dinner breaks as well as a free day in the middle of longer conferences, help to provide some rest in within and between the busy days. Throughout the conference, parents get significant exposure to MNRI® Method techniques and receive instruction from the Certified Core Specialists during each of the different MNRI® program sessions on how to carry on treatment at home.
Families attending 5-day conferences are provided:

Core Specialists and other conference support resources travel to the conference from the U.S., Canada, Poland, Russia and other countries. Travel arrangements for these resources are made in advance to ensure timely arrival and to mange flight costs. As a result, the closer a cancellation occurs to the actual conference date, the higher the potential non-retrievable costs. Any funds held back due to cancellations will go towards covering these non-retrievable costs.
MNRI® Core-in-Training Specialists and IPET Core-in-Training Specialists attending for Clinical hours must register 4 weeks before the Conference and have all required paperwork completed.
Lunch will be provided by The Masgutova Foundation. If you have special dietary needs for health reasons such as Gluten Free, Casein Free, or Vegetarian, etc, please list this information on the Medical Form.
MNRI Family Conferences are staffed by a diverse field of professionals who have been certified as Core Specialists. Many of these professionals run their own practice in addition to assisting us. As such, some conferences may have a limited number of staff.
In order to provide the best service possible for our families, we limit the ratio of Client to Specialist to 1|1.
With our desire to maintain a high level of service, cancellation of registrants may occur if there are not enough Staff. Registrants will be informed of this 10 days before the event takes place. If MNRI is forced to cancel any registrants, a full refund of the conference fees will be given. Cancellations will be offered first on a voluntary basis. If there are not enough volunteers, cancellation protocol will be enacted starting with the most recent registrants.
Full refunds will be given for registration cancellation up to 22 days prior to the conference.
Deposits will not be refunded for cancellation 11-21 days prior to the conference.
Cancellation within 10 days of the conference is non-refundable due to the financial commitments that the organization has made to hotels, travel expenses and salaries of Core Specialists from around the world.
We recommend that attendees who will be flying do not purchase their flight until after the 10-day window has elapsed to avoid a nonrefundable circumstance with the airline. SMEI/Masgutova Foundation is not liable for any ticket costs related to the course being canceled. SMEI/Masgutova Foundation is not liable for any costs related to transportation (airline tickets, train, taxi, etc) due to the cancellation of an event.
* A 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee) will be withheld on all refunds that were processed using credit card/Pay Pal. If a participant wishes the refund to be paid directly to their account via credit card/Pay Pal, the participant will be charged an additional 2.5% transaction fee (processing fee).
