We all have reflexes that we are born with that are designed to keep us safe. As we grow, some of those reflexes are supposed to naturally integrate (go away) as we outgrow their use.
After an accident or illness, sometimes more primitive reflexes return (reappear and get in the way) and cause difficulty and dysfunction in life. That is why we have therapists who are trained in MNRI® (The Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration) Method. This technique allows those primitive reflexes to be reintegrated to allow you to live your best life. Further, it is used to help people with progressive neurological disease, trauma, and PTSD, and all developmental, as well as acquired neurological disorders.
USE OF A NEUROSENSORIMOTOR REFLEX INTEGRATION PROGRAM TO IMPROVE REFLEX PATTERNS OF CHILDREN WITH DOWN SYNDROME
54 children diagnosed with Down Syndrome completed a Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration Program with objective measures taken pre and post program. The NRI Program significantly improved the reflex functions of the children and is an indication that the neurosensory development and overall functioning of children with Down Syndrome is not static. NRI may serve as a tool for children with other neuro-deficits and learning disabilities.

NEUROSENSORIMOTOR REFLEX INTEGRATION FOR AUTISM: A NEW THERAPY MODALITY PARADIGM
This study obtained 3 groups of children. One group was diagnosed with ASD and received MNRI therapy, while two control groups did not receive MNRI therapy. One control group was diagnosed with ASD, while the other was neurotypical concerning development. Based on the data, MNRI intervention had a beneficial effect on 80% of the children with autism. Areas of improvement included sensory-motor integration as we as physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive development.
