If you have a nervous system, MNRI is for you!!
Masgutova’s Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration is a simple yet profound modality designed to strengthen the body’s neural network by activating the most efficient neurological pathway. “Traumas” in utero and throughout our lives cause compromise in the body’s nervous system. MNRI is aimed at creating order by activating primary reflexes developed at conception to awaken the dormant reflex. The movement and light touch protocols of MNRI “grease the groove” of the more efficient pathway.
An example to illustrate this process: the shortest distance between point A and B is a straight line, which is symbolic of the most efficient pathway.
So imagine we are driving in our car to the grocery store, it’s a straight shot, but up ahead we see sirens and cars are stopped in a long line of traffic. In an effort to keep things moving, traffic police step in to reroute traffic. So we follow the detour onto a scenic route through the countryside. On the way we see a field of sunflowers and decide to stop and admire, maybe even frolic for awhile. Eventually getting back into our car to head to the store in this very long, rerouted path. We will make it from point A to point B but it will take us longer and we will use alot more energy than necessary because of the detour and delay.
All of these traffic jams and detours put extra stress on our bodies, altering the chemical balance of our bodies which may lead to depression, anxiety, loss or lack of motivation, intrusive thoughts, codependency, auto immune issues, weight gain, addiction, adrenal fatigue and many other challenges.
MNRI works to get the body back to optimal health by activating and integrating primary reflexes so that messages and chemicals flow through the body in the easiest and most efficient pathways, from point A to point B.
Masgutova Neurosensimotor Reflex Integration or MNRI is a modality that was developed by Polish doctor Svetlana Masgutova in 1989. As a first responder to a train wreck disaster in Olaf, Poland, Masgutova treated 100’s of children that experienced severe injuries and death as a result of the shock from the tragedy. Through light touch and modeling specific reflex movement patterns, she was able to pull the victims out of shock helping the children to process this horrible event.
This event was the catalyst for Masgutova’s study and development of MNRI. MNRI is used when reflex circuits in the body are shorted or rerouted. Trauma in our lives and/or disruptions in developmental milestones can cause many emotional, cognitive, and behavioral problems. MNRI has been proven to help correct the issues. God has wired us in a very detailed and specific way and the trauma we experience in this life disrupts our wiring. The human brain is not a finished organ at birth — in fact, another 10 or 12 years are needed before even a general development is complete. Structural maturation of individual brain regions and their connecting pathways is required for the optimal development of cognitive, motor, and sensory functions. This maturation eventually provides for a smooth, efficient flow of nerve impulses throughout the brain.
Myelination is the process the nervous system uses to create these pathways but disruptions can cause the brain to not work as effectively or efficiently. MNRI awakens the innate intelligence God has put within us for healing. With the use of reflex integration through touch and movement, the nervous system can effect change throughout the body and correct disruptions. MNRI can optimize wellness potential of clients suffering from a variety of issues including but not limited to worry, fear, phobia, anxiety, depression, aggressive behaviors, co-dependency, brain fog, learning delay, lack of motivation, attention deficit and attention deficit with hyperactivity, autism, cerebral palsy, intellectual development delay and proven to take the delayed to average, average to gifted, and the gifted to genius. The MNRI method does not see a problem to be fixed but rather looks for what is working already and builds on that structure, awakening the innate intelligence of the body. When the body feels safe, it is then free to explore, grow, and activate new higher pathways leading to the body’s optimal maturation and development.
