Solve Stress and Heal Trauma: Nervous System Interventions with Dr. Svetlana Masgutova

How healthy is your nervous system?

My latest interview is a special one that covers the very foundations of human performance and muscle building: the nervous system.  If high performance, longevity, and optimal brain function are important to you, this episode is for YOU.

Dr. Svetlana Masgutova is the creator of the MNRI® – Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration Program.  Dr. Masgutova has been leading research since 1989 for the MNRI® Institutes and has studied the influence of primary sensory-motor patterns on different aspects of development and learning. Her work focuses on the concepts of Reflex Integration to facilitate sensory-motor rehabilitation, emotional recovery from traumatic stress, as well as learning and developmental enrichment.

Although Dr. Masgutova’s background is in clinical psychology, her early experience working with PTSD in victims of disaster (particularly children) led her to pursue the path of working through subcortical neurological pathways, to find an alternate connection between sensory stimuli and motor response patterns, that has gone on to provide massive benefit to over 300,000 people across the globe.

You’ll learn:

  • How to identify, and begin to eradicate, your own trauma.
  • Tools to govern and CHANGE stress responses.
  • Why nervous system health is SO important for athletes and high-performers.
  • What the driving factors are for neuroplasticity and neurogenesis.
  • How to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
