Dr Svetlana Masgutova

The Masgutova Method®

of Neuro-Sensory-Motor and Reflex Integration has its origins in a different way of thinking


Dr.Svetlana Masgutova

Svetlana Masgutova, Ph. D., a Russian psychologist currently living 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. Sechenov: neurophysiologists, A. Uhtomsky, N. Bernstein and P. Anokhin; and psychologist L. Vygotsky.

 What Is A Reflex ?

A reflex, in its simplest definition, is a conscious or unconscious behavior (output) occurring in response to a change (input).

Scientific investigation continues to reveal the subtle complexities of reflexes and how hugely important they are to our ability to exist. It is not surprising, therefore, to find references to reflex action as far back as the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, Anaxagorus (500 B.C.) who spoke of a self-organizing nature of the mind’s activity and Plato (400 B.C.) who proposed that sense experiences act to guide assertions about the outside world.

Why is Reflex Integration important?

It has become apparent through the thousands of assessments completed by Dr. Masgutova that as the number of non-integrated primary infant reflexes increase in an individual, the range and severity of motor, communication, and cognitive challenges and emotional and behavioral regulation issues correspondingly increase.

Motor movement reflexes can be categorized according to the number and combination of muscles, joints, and limbs involved in executing a particular motor response. Somatic reflex categories include motor reflex actions, movements, patterns, and schemes. This structural characterization can be applied to all sensorimotor  reflexes whether they are lifelong, primary, innate or acquired.

  1. Thank you for the help you and your foundation are providing for families. Seeing you teach Akhil on U tube was impressive and inspirational.  The Webinar was great. I will appreciate receiving  the slides. My daughters and I have benefited a lot from Svetlana and her programs. I understand you taped the session. How can people access the tapes? What are the plans for the classes? Where can people get information about them? Thank you for your great help.  S. Davis

  2. I was listening yesterday Dr. Masgutova webinar. I would like to say thank you for that opportunity and thank you for the speaker. It was very interesting especially the questions and answers part.
    I also would like to know if there is any information already available when would be the next Masgutova webinar?
    Best regards from Estonia

  3. Thank you for organizing these webinars. I have a question for Dr. Masgutova:

    Which reflexes should we work on for aggressive biting behaviors in children with autism? And do we take chewy tubes away from them?

    Thank you.
