Weekly MNRI Education Portal Series started

Dr Svetlana Masgutova The mission of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute (SMEI) is to provide health, wellness and educational professionals, parents, and caregivers with non-invasive techniques to address maturational, developmental, and life challenges. The Masgutova Method of Neuro-Sensory-Motor and Reflex Integration has its origins in a different way of thinking. Svetlana Masgutova, Ph. D., a Russian psychologist currently working in Poland and the US, has based her method on the work done from the 1920’s to 1950’s by Russian physiologists I. Pavlov and I. Stechenov: neurophysiologists, A. Uhtomsky, N. Bernstein and P. Anokhin; and psychologist L. Vigotsky. These scientists/researchers placed reflexes in the frame of both higher and lower nervous system activity. They saw in infant reflexes not only a protective or survival response to stress or danger, but also the neuro-physiological foundation for physical, emotional and cognitive development. “The first infant movements do not disappear; they continue to work in union with higher nervous system formations…” L.S. Vigotsky, Russian psychologist, 1930 Through her own research on over 3,000 children over the past 20 years in Russia, Poland, USA and Canada and her practical experience with more than 27,000 clients worldwide, Dr. Masgutova has expanded her conceptual understanding of these phenomena and developed her own sensory-motor integration program
