ADHD, ADD and The Masgutova Method


ADD/ADHD is a common diagnosis that can be helped directly, overtime via MNRI ( The Masgutova Method ) restorative techniques which can assist in self-regulation and more organized composure.

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. This results in symptoms that can lead to one or a combination of diagnoses.

The MNRI Method recognizes the underlying causes of ADHD, isolates the impacted primary motor reflexes, and targets the neurosensorimotor dysfunction related to the impacted reflexes with MNRI restorative techniques to reduce or eliminate the resulting automatic, learned, and advanced developmental challenges.

More specifically, the MNRI Method recognizes primary motor dysfunction regardless of the underlying causes, such as:

● Congenital issues, or disease
● Physical or emotional trauma, or prolonged chronic or intermittent stress
● General debilitation (physical, emotional, etc.) caused by any of the above

Addressing the underlying neurosensorimotor mechanisms related to the isolated primary reflexes using the MNRI Method techniques assists in:

● Integrating sensory system challenges
● Activating (existing) or creating (alternating) nervous system pathways
● Integrating primary motor and lifelong reflexes

Throughout intervention, we see improvement of function or restoration of neurosensorimotor dysfunction (or deeper pathology), relating to:

● Automatic motor scheme maturation – Rolling over, sitting up, crawling, walking, etc.
● Learn motor skill development – Fine and gross motor skills
● Learned motor planning development – Skill coordination and execution
● Learned communication development – Speech, language, reading, writing, etc., and resulting relational skills
● Cognitive development – Advanced processing and generalization skills
● Emotional and behavioral regulation and socialization skills

By addressing the underlying dysfunction, the Masgutova Method seeks to help the ADHD child improve his planning, relational, generalization, and socialization issues by addressing the unique combination of primary motor reflexes that signal specific neurosensorimotor dysfunction.

This is why the Masgutova community is broad and diverse. As one of the truly holistic approaches to ADHD, it has a broad application that can help anyone who is faced with a challenge despite the level of function, dysfunction or pathology that exists.
