MNRI Therapy

Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration : Dynamic Postural Reflex Pattern Integration

The MNRI Reflex Pattern Integration Program techniques are designed to promote the activation, maturation and integration of dysfunctional or deeper pathological primary motor reflex patterns. Primary motor reflex patterns provide protection and security while present and active, and support optimal development when appropriately integrated. When a primary motor reflex pattern does not emerge, mature, or integrate as it should, the body is signaling that some part or combination of the underlying neurosensorimotor system related to that reflex is not functioning as it should. The impact of any one or combination of non-integrated reflex patterns can lead to emotional and behavioral dysregulation as well as motor, communication, or cognitive challenges. The number and magnitude of challenges will vary depending on the number of reflexes impacted and the maturational deficits of each reflex. When successful, MNRI Reflex Pattern Integration Program techniques can change lives by improving simple function when challenges are physically pervasive and even restore function when full integration can be achieved. Potential exists in each us for functional improvements regardless of the challenges faced. When primary motor reflex patterns can be influenced using MNRI restorative techniques to emerge, mature and integrate, where once they had been dysfunctional or pathological, the possibilities for functional improvement are often surprising.

General Diagnoses that can benefit from MNRI Restorative techniques:

The human body’s ability to adapt in the face of challenges is truly amazing. If neurosensorimotor pathways are blocked, the body, without outside intervention, will attempt to find alternate compensating neural paths to achieve its motor program goals. When the body is left to its own accord, however, the primary motor reflexes relating to the blocked neural pathways will remain in a role of protection, compromising the subordinate role the reflex serves in more complex patterns, schemes, learned skills and advanced motor, communication, and cognitive development; resulting in symptoms that can lead to one or a combination of DSM IV diagnoses, including among many others:

Cerebral Palsy
Dyslexia Dysgraphia
Emotionally Disturbed (ED)
Learning Disability (LD)
ADHD Inattentive, Hyperactive or Combined type
Oppositional Defiance Disorder
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
