MNRI (Masgutova Neuro-Sensory-Motor Relfex Integration), also known as the Masgutova Method, addresses primary reflexes patterns. When we experience trauma, our primary reflexes come into play in order to protect and serve us. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) coincides with these primary reflex patterns, remaining in an active state. Individuals may experience various symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, difficulty sleeping, difficulty focusing, and sensitivity to sounds, decreased immune system, and more.
MNRI is a non-verbal, body based therapy that uses movement and stretching to address the activity in our reflexes in response to stress or trauma. Following an initial assessment, specific reflex challenges are identified and a basic treatment plan is created. Often clients are provided with a simple home program and instruction on how to apply basic MNRI techniques between visits. MNRI is reported to be a calming, relaxing experience used with both children and adults.
MNRI targets the emotional center of the brain without talk therapy in a gentle and noninvasive way in order to achieve proper realignment of the sensory-motor reflexes. For more information, go to the MNRI website: http://masgutovamethod.com/about-the-method/the-mnri-method-approach-programs
