The Reflexology Starter Kit!
(Reflex-O-Massager not included.)

The Reflexology Starter Kit has many extra's to help you perform self-treatment and assist in determining if you have a "call" to become a ReflexoCursit (reflexologist). The Log Book provides you a means to record the time worked on family and friends, so that all this experience can be counted towards the 100 hour requirement of the MIR Home Study Program; should you decide at a later date to continue your pursuit of a ReflexoCure (reflexology) career. (This Kit does not include Dr. Wittman's Reflex-O-Massager.)

This Kit contains the new lightweight halogen powered Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer I-1 device shown above with a universal clamp. This compact clamp-mount BEAMER I-1 or I-1b is the outgrowth of a 12 year light therapy research project here at MIR Research Clinic. The BEAMER I-1 comes with complete instructions on basic procedure and safe self-application. This is a modern version of Dr. Fitzgerald's therapeutic radiant energy heat lamp used back in 1917 in Zone Therapy Treatment.

You will likewise be thrilled with the dynamic of the 'all-in-one' ReflexyCure Probe by Nicole; and it's simplicity of function. It is a viable reflex stimulus tool for feet, hands and body reflex points. It also carries a lifetime warranty when properly used. It comes with a customized chart showing how to work the terminations/origins of the 24 meridians; which are all equally divided between both the feet and the hands. For self-help applications Nicole's ReflexyCure Probe will be used primarily on the reiterative Solar Plexus point (see Wittman Chart to right). This is the same location as the Kidney One Meridian point for those that follow the Meridian system.

The MIR Reflexologist Log Book is recommended for all MIR Students to help them maintain a record of all reflex work done. The Log Book contains over 20 pages of vital reflexology (reflexoCure) information in the front and back sections. You will find 'off-the-beaten-path' research that's exclusive to the INSTITUTE. Read about regeneration of salamander hearts that had been 50% cutaway; and how they were totally regrown without scar tissue within 12 hours. A mystery is solved by Robert O. Becker, MD. Find out how this salamander heart research relates to the 'massive stimulus' recommendation of MIR and the dynamic reflexology (ReflexoCure) results.

The Reflexology Decoder Chart (Hands and Feet Reflexes) is no longer available, but our replacement is either Mildred Carter's foot and hand charts (2 double-sided) or Dr. Bernardin's well researched 4-color foot wall chart (based on his ten years of Reflexology treatment and observation).

Inset from Dr. Bernardin's 4-color Wall Chart.

Dr. Brinkerhoff's MIR Video #1; Reflex Technique Demonstration: demonstrates various tool techniques as well and some relaxation procedures commonly used among ReflexoCurists (reflexologists). This video is drawn from the Home Study Package so as to give you another glimpse into the World of Professional Reflexology.

Dr. Riley's Ultra MASSAGER video demonstration will give you another unusual glimpse into the world of the professional ReflexoCurist (reflexologist) which shows how very easy it is to give a dynamic professional treatment with no strain on your part. This is the same machine used by Eunice Ingham's teachers and employers ... Dr. Joseph Shelby and Elizabeth Ann Riley. You will see how to get 'shockingly' good results with the DRUMmer percussive action; which is similar to the percussion/tapping impact of Dr. Wittman's Reflex-O-Massager. The applications is the same for both machines, so watch the angles of approach by keeping the instrument perpendicular to the bone (as shown in the video).

Dr. Wittman's New Reflexology Hand Book is the original edition of this plainly written primer for the novice. This collectors item, penned by the founder of the INSTITUTE, shows a reiterative point overlays on an actual photographs of the feet and hands. Although Wittman himself used his Percuss-O-Flex machine to stimulate these reflex points; he also taught the use of finger pressure techniques. He also included a long list of bioelectric disorders which he treated successfully in his Oak Brook, Illinois practice; and has defined the reflex point combinations for treatment of many dysfunctions.

Note Wittman's unique placement of Breast Reflex
which is positioned in Zones 3 & 4 or
Gallbladder Meridian Source Point.

Let your DREAM come True
Just Like Donna Bean!

Donna M. Bean, PR

When Donna M. Bean of Gwinnette County, Georgia, decided to train with Modern Institute and become a Reflexologist ... she ran into governmental regulations that required a reflexologist become licensed as a Massage Therapist. Here is her story:

I was asked to write my story about overcoming ill conceived governmental reflexology regulations in order to inspire others to follow their heart when confronted with such barriers. I want to let people know that just because someone says something, or the government makes a law, that doesn’t mean you can’t change it. So, here’s my recent experience with such rules and regulations.

Well, as most of you know, I have been trying to get a business license in Gwinnett County for Reflexology. When I first called the county I was told I needed a certification, three letters of recommendation from registered voters in the county I live in, and I had to complete the application for the license. I thought, "NO PROBLEM!!"

After completion of my 350 hour reflexology training course I got the required letters and filled out the application ... then off to the business license department I went. When I got there I was told that I had to have a National Certification, so the clerk gave me the number to call in order to get that "certification".

OH BOY!! When I called I discovered that I had to complete a 500 hour course in Massage Therapy or bodywork, and then send them $250.00 just to be able to sit and take a test. The county was going to make me become Nationally Certified in Massage Therapy to get a license to practice as reflexologist.

At first I said okay, no problem. So I continued my reflexology studies and completed requirements for my 500 Professional Certification with Modern Institute of Reflexology (MIR), which is the 500 hour course that the National Certification Board required.

After reading the test center’s booklet and Website, it said that you have to have in-class hours. OH NO!! MIR's courses were home study. So I called the center, "Are you sure it’s in-class hours???" They said, "No, the certification from MIR would do".

Great!! I continued to talk with the gentleman asking questions. I asked, “How much of the test would be on Massage Therapy??” The answer was, about half. Another question was, “What would happen if I didn’t pass?”. The answer? You can pay $250.00 to take it again, but you can only take the test three times ($250 each time). I thought to myself for a moment and told the gentleman okay, and hung up the phone.

Okay, I was going to have to do some major studying. This bothered me for a couple of weeks, but I could not quit thinking about my problem and ways around this law that my county had. So, I phoned the President of Modern Institute of Reflexology, Zachary K. Brinkerhoff, III, and he told me to hang tough and have faith and fight it. Then I spoke with family, friends and massage therapists who said, “that’s just crazy ... Reflexology and Massage are different."

I asked myself if this was God’s way of testing me (to see if this is really what I wanted to do) or was I going to give-in or just give up and do something else. My answer to Him was "YES, this is what I am going to do!! It feels right." With all the pain I had been through with my legs (ankles and knees) ... I knew what it felt like to hurt. Now I know how to help other people. I felt like this was the reason that I was here ... reflexology is what I am supposed to do. I have always been told that if something is hard to get ... don’t give up ... it will just make getting it feel so much better and worth it.

I decided to call every government license agency for Georgia and found that I didn’t have to get a state license. So my question to myself was ... why should I have to get one from my county. There’s got to be another way. So I called the county and asked them what to do next. The clerk told me to send the application back in and the Board would deny it. Then they would send it back to me with the Appeal Process. That process would start when I sent a Letter of Appeal along with $500 dollars for the appeal.

So I said, “YOU’RE KIDDING”. The guy I was speaking with (and had been speaking with since the beginning of the mess) said I could write a letter asking them to waive the fee and send it with the Letter of Appeal. The Board could either waive the fee or make me pay, but they would decide after reading the letters.

So, I wrote a nice little letter asking them to waive it, and of course they did. I also sent in a Letter of Appeal along with that letter. When I called to make sure they got the letter, they said they would set up the process and make an appointment for me to go before the members of the Gwinnett County Board to let me have my say.

I made up my mind … the County was in for a fight. I was not going to give up and I WASN’T going to pay anyone any money to take a test that I wasn’t qualified to pass. I was going to set a precedent for Gwinnett County. I was going to get my license for Reflexology and I didn’t care how many appeals I was going to have to go through. I was going to win.

"My Chocolate Lab begs to have his ear reflex points worked with the DRUMmer," said Donna.

So, along with the Letter of Appeal and a request for waiver, I sent letters from everyone who had written recommendation letters to the reflexology school and the county ... along with letters from my Chiropractor and Nurses who are my patients. I also included a letter from my orthopedic doctor stating that I was not physically able to be a massage therapist. I also sent in the name and address of every association in the United States for reflexology and made sure to include their phone numbers. I didn’t stop there ... but also included the history of reflexology and how it has evolved over the years. This data showed how it can benefit individuals. Then I added information from a couple of Websites that I had downloaded during my studies. I gave them so much data on reflexology they were probably choking on it.

A week later they left two messages on my cell phone asking me to call them. I was expecting they wanted to make an appointment time for my appeal to the Board. So I called them back. Since I had sent them all that information, the gentleman said they had decided to do some further checking on reflexology. After doing their research the Board had decided that I was right. Reflexology and Massage Therapy are not the same. I was informed that they were going to separate Reflexology from Massage Therapy and put it in a separate classification. That meant I didn’t have to go in front of the board members to fight my case.

So, today I went to pick up my business license – REFLEXOLOGY FOR THE SOLE!!!!!

I want to thank everyone who was there by my side and those who stood with me in spirit!! I got my answer ... this is what God wants me to do.

Thanks and God Bless!
