As an Occupational Therapist, what does the Masgutova Method mean and how will the Master of Science in Neurodevelopmental Sciences help me professionally?
The Occupational Therapists that are incorporating the Masgutova Method into their practice report that has helped them get to the root of the problem rather than provide a temporary "bandaid" for the issue, understand how the body was designed to work, recognize many "behaviors" observed are due to deficits in reflex integration - NOT a choice that was being made, has provided them with the confidence that they can treat issues that they would typically feel were outside my expertise area.
The Masgutova Method is explained by an Occupational Therapist as:
- the integration of sensory, motor, and brain processing systems that help the brain, body, and emotions work together in an organized way.
- the body's ability to understand and regulate the information coming in to the body and regulate the appropriate output
- The natrual progression of our body's coordination as nature intended
As a Nurse or Medical Professional, what does the Masgutova Method mean and how will the Master of Science in Neurodevelopmental Sciences help me professionally?
As a medical professional, the Masgutova Method teaches you specific reflexes and neurotactile techniques that help reduce the perception of pain. "We know that if pain can be reduced, that healing from injury/surgery/disease process will be enhanced. As a nurse, we also teach a lot of techniques of how to reduce stress whether thats guided imagery, breathing, exercising.... the Masgutova Method teaches tools that will help your patients better manage stress. Depending on where you work, there are specific targets that the Masgutova Method would benefit your patient care....." (R. LaVone).
The Masgutova Method is explained by a Nurse as:
Reflexes are seen in neonates as a means of protection and organizing of the body. These reflexes are automatic and genetically imprinted into each fetus, they do not disappear but are integrated into the whole body system serving as the foundational blocks for growth and development. There are many reasons why this system can be interrupted, but given the proper circuit, it can be restored to its original function.
