Kendall Eckert came to the USA to expand his reflexology horizons
and establish not only a practice, but fulfill his vision of establishing
a school that would prepare a student to become a bonafide professional
practitioner able to fit into the medical model. "So
many reflexologists are not practicing full time and are ill equipped
to qualify for a National Provider Identification Number (NPI
number) through the American Medical Associations (AMA) National
Uniform Code Committee (NUCC). It is my goal to estalish a school
here in Hendersonville, TN that will turn out reflexologic practitioners
qualified to work in the medical arena."

Kendall was drawn to the Modern Institute of Reflexology through
a past encounter with Dr. Brinkerhoff at the 1990 Council of North
American Reflexologist conference which was held in Toronto.
"I remember both Zachary and Mildred Carter were speakers,
and every body was abuzz about his presentation on Water the Conductor.
Mildred even added his information about the effect of dehydration
on reflexologic outcome of treatment in her publication: Body

Kendall. "Mildred was such a lovely person - so gentle
and kind in her teaching presentation."

Reflexology in Delaware
Patterson advertises on his Beach Buggie.
Sometimes when you find
your bliss in life a person may run into roadblocks. This is the
story of finding my 'calling' --- an odyssey filled with challenges
to prevent being able to legally practice the profession that
God wanted me to do. My chronicle of this journey is dedicated
to Zachary Brinkerhoff and his support, Tod Zimmermann and his
belief, and a slew of people who supported me through prayer,
letters, and encouragement.
on recipient in his home setting.
My journey began in 1977 at a
small hospital in Lewes, Delaware with a fledgling department
called Integrative Health. Here a visionary coordinator named
Cheyenne Suzader had a student of the International Institute
of Reflexology do a demonstration of Reflexology. I decided to
give it a whirl and from that day on my life was going to be very
different. After my initial session, I felt that this was something
I wanted to learn. I went home that night understanding the principles
involved and the techniques used. I felt as if I had done this
before. I was able the next day to work on my roommate's feet
and stop his backache. It was then I decided I needed to get trained.
It was here the struggle began.
pessimist ever discovered
the secret of the stars
or sailed an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway
for the human spirit.
In my search I could find no schools to teach reflexology in
the area. I received information about the school in Florida that
traveled around the country to give weekend training (followed
by case studies, books, and video and so on). The problem was
that these seminars were not close enough to attend and took about
three years to complete. I found a school in Pennsylvania that
could be completed in a year, but this was for three 1-week sessions
and I was not able to do that. I became frustrated and discouraged.
& Zachary onboard the TCC in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
I finally found the Modern Institute of Reflexology Website and
inquired about the Home Study Package. I had my doubts about home
study with a one-stop visit from the MIR Transcontinental Classroom.
However, after much prayer I decided to do it. This was without
a doubt one of the best decisions in my life. It took a year
to complete the course (I maintained a 99% grade point average),
but it was worth it because I was able to use my skills to help
my best friend with cancer. He had less pain and better body function
because of Full Spectrum Reflexology (I used him as one of
my case studies required for graduation). Working with a
cancer patient allowed me to really experience just what Reflexology
could encourage the body to do. I think this was a preamble to
my client experience because God seems to send me unusual and
difficult cases; for which I am able to encourage balance and
achieve homeostasis; much more than I would ever have thought
DRUMmer hammers K1
After researching the regulations and rules and laws in Delaware
for this discipline, I could find no indication of reflexology
as a modality of massage that needed to be licensed in my State.
So, I decided to use Reflexology as part of my ministry for body,
mind, and spirit since I was an ordained minister of the Universal
Life Church. I had been a lay minister and CEO for the Metropolitan
Community Church in Rehoboth Beach for five years and had used
healing touch, laying on of hands, anointing, prayer, and meditation
to assist in healing all during those five years. Reflexology
just seemed to be a natural addition to ministry.
It was in this time period that I lost my employment and was
denied unemployment benefits. Then a chiropractor friend of mine
offered to let me work in his office. I already had a business
license so I thought, 'I have nothing ... so what do I have to
lose?' After I had started working in the chiropractors office,
I won unemployment benefits which allowed me to have a cushion
while I built up my practice.
I used 10 minute free introductory coupons to encourage people
to give reflexology a try since not many people knew a thing about
the profession. These coupons proved to be a very good way to
demonstrate what I knew and almost always resulted in a scheduled
appointment. Combined with prayer and faith (and a lot of help
from my friends) I was able to survive while educating the public
about the remarkable relaxation and equilibrium benefits of reflexology
(which leads to a healthier lifestyle and biological balance).
Some people may think that this was a great start, but the biggest
challenge was yet to come. In October of 2003 I received a letter
from the Board of Professional Regulation that a complaint had
been lodged against me for practicing reflexology without a license.
This complaint was going to be investigated by the Board to see
if criminal charges would be brought against me. Needless to say
it was an unnerving time (I even considered moving to Pennsylvania
to practice, but Zachary told me to stand firm), but I believed
that I was operating within the framework of ministry and had
copies of the laws I had dug up early on to back me up.
matters of style,
swim with the current;
in matters of principle,
stand like a rock.
It was not until April that the case was resolved. I was investigated
and interviewed. The investigators agreed I had the education
and that I was not a fly-by-night. They saw that I was doing ministry
as well. They told me I had done my homework and research, so
I believed they felt that I was a professional. (I had also contacted
my state representative who also helped.) They advised me after
a couple of days to apply for a Certified Massage Technician license.
So, I did and was duly licensed by the Delaware Board of Massage
and Bodyworks. I was approved even though my reflexology education
was mostly MIR's Home Study Program with only eight hours of Tutoring
via Transcontinental Classroom. This was an unusual approval made
by the Board, certainly not the norm. But this case has certainly
set a precedent that other states can now begin to follow.
At his Long
Neck office Dave is shown doing
ReflexoCure on both feet simultaneously
which doubles the dynamic.
What did it take to achieve this? I researched every law in every
state and was able to show the lack of consistency in the laws:
from no laws to very strict laws; from reflexology license to
inclusion under massage. I was able to show that reflexology is
a stand alone outside of massage. I was able to prove that no
massage school in Delaware and surrounding states had full training
programs for massage (in-class setting or home study). What little
reflexology that was being taught was CEU's for massage or cosmetology
(nail technicians). Twelve hours was the maximum time being taught
and what was being taught was foot massage (this was information
passed to me from their clients and students). It took research,
determination, belief, prayer, emotional balance, and letters
of support from clients about my work and my ministry to encourage
the right outcome. I believe this is my calling and I believe
I proved it to all involved in the investigation.
in Long Neck, Delaware.
The next few months were good and business grew. I did not set
the world on fire, but I was able to live with my income. I was
asked to teach by the Delaware Technical and Community College
for their massage class. The first year was for 12 hours in 2003,
the second was for 24 hours in 2004 and in 2005 I will again t
each 24 hours. We are looking to start a full course and continuing
education credits in the near future. It has been very gratifying
for me to be able to know that a state school is teaching correct
Reflexology and wants to create a full course. This is what I
call a God moment and proves that tenacity and intent can move
My business continues to grow and I know that I
will be earning a comfortable living very soon. I am proud to
be a graduate of the Modern Institute of Reflexology and I am
pleased to be a successful professional in my field. However,
much still needs to be done on a national level to open dialogue
and to establish national certification and testing for Reflexology
his new Beach Buggie.
Many states will want to see the testing and certification even
though I do not believe that indicates what a practitioner knows.
It isn't until you are actually working that the knowledge about
reflexology sets in and you become a professional. My advice as
a new graduate is to consistently practice in order to learn your
craft from each client you serve. They and their bodies will teach
you. Reflexology is a sacred profession based in religion from
the Egyptians and others ... down to the Mennonites and Amish
... to you. Keep your eye on your goals and believe that you can
do it and CO-create it.
It is time
for some of Dave's Yummies.
Permit me to share one last experience with you. In March of
2005, I was asked by the contact person on the Board of Massage
and Bodyworks in Delaware to apply for a Board position. I was
subsequently appointed by Governor Ruth Ann Minner as a Board
Member on April 4, 2005 for a term of three years. This position
is an answer to prayer and a confirmation of my Reflexology practice.
Now I will be a part of the process of creating better rules and
criteria for licensing. My hope is to see stand alone professions
like Reflexology and Acupressure separated from massage with criteria
of their own, so that Bodywork outside of massage is recognized
as being unique. I also hope to see legal wording become crystal
clear so that there is no question of what is written in law and
regulations by anyone visiting any Website that attempts to address
this issue. I hope to see Delaware be a model for all state laws
concerning alternative healthcare practice nationwide. It will
happen! So, pray for me ... and Zachary ... thank you more than
I can ever express. Dave.

Doctor Graduates from MIR
Dr. Alfred Reinhard Bird Bear Obes
"I have a military and medical
career behind me, being proud of them because nothing was given
to me but everything had to be earned. As a professional, medical
doctor and specialist as an intensivist, anesthesiologist, emergency
specialist, medical consultant for surgery, internal medicine,
gynecology, obstetrics and infant intensive care as well as former
adjunct to dialysis and officer of a major blood bank, as a former
medical confidant of local and district law enforcement and border
patrol and as former head of the intensive care units of a major
general hospital with all disciplines of medicine represented,
working with two universities, and as colonel of the Armed Forces
(NATO), I want to congratulate Dr. Zachary Brinkerhoff, DR on
his great reflexology program and his tremendous lifetime achievement
in behalf of reflexology.
Alfred cuts his beard every spring.
"My introduction to Full Spectrum
Reflexology was administered by MIR Student Richard Crow's Heart
Jr. which included the hands, ears and feet. I was so impressed
with the beneficial and benevolent reflexology treatment which
I received that I thought to enroll myself in the Reflexology
Home Study Course. I became fired up about the issues after studying
the free sample reflexology lesson. The concise no nonsense style
of the reflexology lesson convinced me and my wife Iris that we
both should take up the reflexology study course. We are both
in agreement not only with Dr. Brinkerhoff's wonderful reflexology
concept but also with the particular tone and method developed.
Especially, we love the uplifting message reflected throughout
the reflexology lessons and are glad to have been his students.
I am so very impressed that Zachary has revived an ancient art
the way he did: passionately and methodically.

"It was more than thirteen years
ago that I experienced reflexology by a good man who somehow relieved
and refreshed us Sundancers by pushing hard on certain points
at the soles of our feet. I vividly remember how we exhausted
dancers initially twisted in agony ... until a wonderful relaxation
came over us. We wondered why certain points should be that painful
while otherwise there seemed to be no problem at all! Hence, I
can appreciate the "shock-type" reflexology advocated
by the INSTITUTE and in turn administer the same to others.
Iris Bird Bear works Spleen Source Point.
"My wife Iris has taught the
Native language and culture in the school district of Newtown,
ND for many years. As an MIR Student she anticipates completing
her reflexology studies and assisting me in my new Reflexology

which is the best advertising."

The Question may be twofold: why
having Reflexology applied and why doing Reflexology. My answers
for both are the same.
1. Reflexology is not invasive.
2. Reflexology is not prescribing any medicine.
3. Reflexology is advocating knowledge and natural life,
natural food/diet and natural lifestyle.
4. Reflexology is empowering the client to take care
of him/herself, and will interest the patient in care of the
human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of
5. Reflexology involves the heritage's of all peoples
and all races around the globe, ancient as well as contemporary.
6. Reflexology has a forward outlook to include promising
7. Reflexology is seeking to uplift humanity from the
morass of ignorance.
8. Reflexology opens new pathways to health and fulfillment.
9. Reflexology invites new aspects of spiritual approach.
10. Reflexology helps as all-inclusive treatment to gain
courage, faith, strength and ultimately happiness.
11. Reflexology is by all these bright prospects a humble

in New Town and we happen to have several patients in common.
From all the input that I have received
from several patients that Alfred has done treatments on, he has
been quite effective in the relief of their myriad symptoms and
complaints. In this part of our country most patients have to
have pretty serious problems before they would even consider any
type of alternative therapy. Alfred has been working with some
very tough cases indeed.
Alfred was a practicing MD in Europe
years ago and continues to exercise good judgment in the care
of his patients. I have no reservations about continuing to send
him patients who are looking for another avenue of therapy when
Western allopathic medical therapies seem to fall short.

it was the most generous at freely sharing their reflexology secrets.

When Sara first tried
to open her office in North Aurora where she grew up, the village
officials refused to allow it, informing her that she didn't comply
with village ordinances. She was told she needed a certificate
of registration, a massage license and fingerprinting, but she
was able to prevail at her hearing by clarifying that those requirements
applied to massage therapists ... not to reflexologists in the
State of Illinois.
"As a Reflexologist I am
legally exempt," she stated to the Village Father's. "For
example, a reflexology session doesn't require a client to disrobe,
except for removal of shoes and socks." (Sara finally prevailed
and was given the OK from the village.)

Noah continued his post graduate
studies with M.I.R. under the teaching of Dr. Clement

I needed to find a way to save my thumb joints. The Percuss-O-Flex
reflexology machine worked great. My patients responded well and
my thumb is still in good shape,” explained Noah.
“The POF gave me better results in less time and with less
physical exertion. And clients said that they loved the feel."
Noah continued to order the POF
reflexology machines from M.I.R. over the years and resold them
to clients. He encouraged self-help. “I called in an
order one day and discovered MIR had a new machine called the
reflexology machine that was even more powerful. Mister Zachary
had taken over the reins of MIR and sent me a new 'jackhammer'

Modern Institute of Reflexology
In September of 2006 a Colombian
named Jairo Soto Rodriguez will have paid his debt to the People
of the United States of America for the charges leveled against
him in Federal Court for which he was convicted and subsequently
incarcerated in Miami, Florida. Upon release he will be deported
to his homeland of Colombia, South America.
Although Jairo was convicted on the
testimony of a convicted felon, he decided to make the most of
his time in the Federal Correctional Institution and asked his
friend Silvio J. Camodeca, DDS (a Wholistic dentist in Chicago)
to become his sponsor. Dr. Camodeca contacted his associate Zachary
Brinkerhoff in Denver and arranged to enroll Mr. Rodriquez into
the Home Study Program of the Modern Institute of Reflexology.
"Between Zachary and myself we covered the cost of the
reflexology course," said Dr. Camodeca.
Jairo was thrilled when he finally
received his Reflexology Home Study Package on 6/12/97 and began
performing reflexology on a few friends in his group. By 3/12/98
he was well into his studies when he wrote: "I have a
patient with a problem in his back. I have worked on his reflexes
about an hour a day (Monday to Friday) for 2 months and he got
real good (it's not as bad as before the treatments), but He still
has a problem with his back. Please send me your opinion how he
can get his back out of the remaining stiffness. I repeat again,
his back got looser than before. Thank you for your great help.
Sincerely, Jairo Soto."
This Photo provided by courtesy of Federal Bureau of Prisons.
During a phone call in late '98 Jairo
was told by Dr. Camodeca that Dr. Brinkerhoff was coming to Miami
with the MIR Transcontinental Classroom ... the Big Bus: "I
was so happy to hear that you would like to visit me. I'm very
excited to get to meet you and I'm looking forward to see you.
I was glad to receive the Certificate of Completion for MIR's
Reflexology Home Study Program. Thank you for your help and wonderful
teachings in this ancient field.
"I would like to enroll into
the 500 hour Professional Reflexology Program "hands on"
Polishing School ... I'm trying to get the money for that advanced
course soon. I will do my best to continue this study and to keep
on working until I get to perfection. Kindest regards, Jairo Soto."
"... I was in prison,
and you visited me."
Matthew 25:36 (Berkley)
When the TCC finally arrived to visit
Jairo, he couldn't come out for class. So Zachary went into the
facility after a security check that took two days. "It
was a great experience," he said. "Jairo was
so excited to meet me and introduce me to some of his friends
that he had treated with Reflexology. I updated him on some techniques
and I listened to his long range goal to 'build a little cabin'
in which he will establish a practice in reflexology and natural
health in Cali, Colombia. Our 3.5 hour visit passed so quickly
... we had such a great time together."
Jairo has had 10 years to prepare
for his new start in life: "I have continued to study
Wholistic subjects while in prison so that I will be prepared
to operate my new Reflexology Health Center in Cali.
I plan to have health seminars and Dr. Zachary has agreed to visit
my country in order to help teach the Reflexology classes. Things
are looking very promising and I am so excited at the opportunity
that I have been able to envision," said Jairo. "I
have done so well with Dr. Zachary's Reflexology Home Study Program
and Reflexology Tutoring that two of my fellow inmates are now
planning to take the reflexology training course for themselves."
Due to Jairo's extensive studies
into the many avenues of Holistic medicine, his vision for his
"little cabin" has enlarged. "When I get back to
Cali I am going to open a Holistic hospital. I want you to come
help me get it started," he said to Zachary during a July

CLINIC on the Island of Mauritius. It is the mid of summer and
so hot that I have to work bare footed and in my shorts. Otherwise
I would melt." Wrote Maurice D'Arifat in a report to
Drs. Richard Long and Zachary Brinkerhoff.
Maurice got his start with M.I.R.'s advanced reflexology
techniques when he ordered a Reflexology Starter Kit through the
Internet and began to experience the Full Spectrum Reflexology
Method. He next ordered a Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer V-5 to
do some further experimenting.
Things went so well with his clients that he finally
ordered Dr. Riley's Ultra MASSAGER aka DRUMmer reflexology machine.
Maurice was glad that he did: "The DRUMmer reflexology
machine is great and WORKING MIRACLES. All of my clients now receive
a full treatment of Reflexology plus some time with the BEAMER
Maurice uses the DRUMmer reflexology machine not
only on the feet, but also on other selected energy points over
the various body meridians. He particularly likes the specialized
brass and stainless steel tips for these specific points. He has
concluded that 4,400 impacts a minute with the DRUMmer is much
more effective than the traditional finger pressure technique
that he had used for years. "All of my clients have expressed
their satisfaction with my new approach. As you can see in my
pictures; I am using some of the tips to stimulate acupuncture
points with success."
"I am becoming famous around the Island
now because people are beginning to talk about their good results.
My reputation is growing by word of mouth." Maurice was
so thrilled with the positive feedback of his clientele that he
became qualified for credentialing through M.I.R. He completed
more than his 500 hours of practicum which is required to become
a Freelancer Professional Reflexologist with the Institute. "I
decided that I was going to work essentially along the line of
your method. Attainment of the Freelancer Professional Diploma
from your Institute will honor my clinic."
Maurice was told that Dr. Pretidev Ramdawon, MD
(also on the Island of Mauritius) was a colleague of Dr. Brinkerhoff;
so he dropped by for a visit to learn a little more about Dr.
Pretidev's use of Low Level Laser in treatment of Diabetes Mellitus.
D'Arifat recently requested of M.I.R.: "Do not forget
to send me a quote for the laser equipment you use in reflexology
treatment adjacent to Dr. Riley's Ultra Massager aka the DRUMmer
Maurice is moving forward in the development of
his vocation with additional experience and credentialing from
the Modern Institute of Reflexology. Likewise, the Institute is
here to help you take your next step into The World of Reflexology;

Air Line Has Real "Foot Fairy"
Kathy Graham had worked for United Air Lines for
over 18 years as a Ticket Counter Agent in Denver, CO; before
she enrolled with Modern Institute of Reflexology. Early in her
studies she had a series of debilitating strokes; and was forced
by her condition to take medical leave from UAL in 92. Kathy
dropped out of the Reflexology Home Study Program and disappeared
into her own world.
I was confused and scared ... my future
was uncertain, stated Kathy. But Dr. Zachary
kept on my case to finish the MIR reflexology course of study.
I didn'tt think he knew how sick I really was, so I challenged
him. I told him to CURE me; and only then would I finish his damned
Dr. Brinkerhoff accepted Kathy's challenge for a cure; and she
came regularly to MIR Research and Development Clinic for treatment
at the hands of both Staff and Students. Surprise! Surprise! Kathy
finally got her cure with a year of effort and dedicated reflexology;
and UAL got their first honest-to-goodness real live Foot Fairy
when she was able to return to work!
Since I made a good wage at United I
wasnt charging money, but Dr. Zachary told me I couldnt
graduate unless I learned that the laborer is worthy of her hire.
He suggested I install a donation box since that is the way he
started his Reflexology practice in California. Well, I got one.
I had told my recipients that I expected a $35/hour donation,
but I was afraid to open my money box ... so I kept putting it
off. When I finally opened it up; there was over $2,000 in checks.
And none of them bounced ... no rubber in there. I had finally
Besides my full time job at UAL, I was
treating reflexology patients late into the night. Sometimes I
only got 3 or 4 hours sleep because of demand for my services.
I saw gapping leg ulcers healed; and people brought off their
death bed. I was summoned on the job to treat fellow employees
who had been injured on duty.
It wasnt long before my fellow employees branded me
as the Foot Fairy. The name stuck ... I liked it. Soon I began
to fly ... fly to other cities to help relieve the side effects
of stress on other UAL employees. Especially since 9/11 when we
lost two planes.
Kathy took early retirement from UAL and opened
a reflexology clinic in Aurora, CO with former MIR Graduate Mary
Marshall. They called their new place: A Key to Health. They operated
at full capacity and were both excited to have finally reached
that point of confidence to lease a facility.
Kathy and Mary recently dissolved their reflexology
clinic operation. Kathy has moved into her full time reflexology
practice into a special reflexology room provided by the Administrator
of a retirement home right there in Aurora. Not only does she
work on residents at a reduced rate, but she is allowed to bring
in outside clients for reflexology treatments.
"I am thankful to Dr. Zachary and the MIR
staff for seeing me through to graduation and preparing me to
become successful in my new reflexology vocational career. My
once uncertain future is now more secure than ever.. with the
help of God and Reflexology.

When MIRs Transcontinental Classroom
stopped in Milford, PA to demonstrate Dr. Rileys Reflexology
Massager ... I was thrilled! I felt honored to have the Big Bus
pull up in front of my Chiropractic office ... right there on
Milfords main street," exclaimed Jay Kaufman, DC.
I tried to get the local paper to come and write the
story up, but to my disappointment they declined. Brother Zachs
lovely wife Rachel was traveling with him and needed a cervical
adjustment. So after receiving my DRUMmer
reflexology machine demonstration, I gave her a chiropractic adjustment;
and we had lunch before they went on their way. What a joyous
and inspirational time!!!
A month later Dr. Jay decided to take MIRs
Reflexology Home Study Course. Zacharys notes
are better than any course I took at Chiropractic School. His
Reflexology Home Study is
concise, entertaining, pertinent, and his information is off
the beaten path. His reflexology course has helped open
my spiritual eyes and given me a new vision for my life. I have
learned that I dont need to fit into a man made institutional
mold!!! I can be my own creative self (like a snowflake, a finger
print or a grain of sand) under the directive of our Creator."
I studied hard and averaged 98% on my
test scores. The inspiration I got from God through this reflexology
course has revolutionized my health care practice. My main focus
in this union of Chiropractic with Reflexology:-- MIRs Dynamic
World Class Foot Joint Micro alignment Reflexology Pressure Technique.
Within 2 minutes of watching MIRs third video on this subject,
I was able to perform the foot joint micro alignment reflexology
pressure technique procedure because of my chiropractic training.

I am having fun and enjoying myself like never

necessities of life. As a student I averaged a $17.50 donation

by the bank president. As a graduate I now charge $35.00 per reflexology

Dr. Jay recently married his long
time associate Sharon and merged their Naturopathic and Chiropractic
professions: now known as Kaufman and Kaufman. Jay now makes house
calls as a professional reflexologist and with the help of his
wife has become a representative/associate of the Modern Institute
of Reflexology: "I think MIR's offering for training as
a reflexology practitioner is the best educational opportunity
available for those wishing to get started in the Holistic healthcare
professions. My passion for this progressive reflexology training
program is directed toward informing the young people through
high school career shows, seminars, and personal contact through
my reflexology practice."
Dr. Jay has been a great help to the INSTITUTE
by giving many positive suggestions to further enhance the Reflexology
Home Study Program. MIR
appreciates input from all students and graduates in order to
make the course even better. "This course is a living
organism; pulsing with the life of many contributors; woven into
the tapestry of a Reflexology Home

Town USA Gets a Reflexologist.
Thief River Falls, Minnesota hasnt
been the same since Stephanie Fimrite graduated from MIR on 10/05/00
and began her Reflexology practice. In photo to the left Stephanie
sits inside the Transcontinental Classroom where she personally
experienced every aspect of the Full Spectrum Reflexology Method
during a fifteen hour tutoring marathon. Zachary Brinkerhoff was
the Tutor who answered her summons for help.
I got so much reflexology
treatment during that 15 hour marathon with Zachary; that the
skin on my face had a severe acne breakout the next day. It scared
me, so I called him on his cell for help. He was rolling down
the highway as he assured me that everything would be all right;
it was all part of the dynamic reflexology treatment that I had
received onboard the Transcontinental Classroom. It was certainly
a learning experience, explained Mrs. Fimrite. Reflexology
is certainly a powerful therapy with cleansing after-affects
Thief River Falls is a town of less than 10,000 inhabitants, but
Stephanie has managed to work with the challenges which that presents
... with the help of MIR. I want to thank you, Zachary,
for coming into my life and making my dream of having my own business,
and being able to help others come true!! I feel your teachings
have truly blessed and changed my life. Thank you and may God
continue to bless you!!! Thanks for your time (on the TCC and
telephone), and all the wisdom I have learned from you,
wrote Stephanie in a letter.

When she called Zachary a year and
a half later she gave another good report: When Dr.
Rileys Reflexology Machine came on 03-31-02, I put it to
work immediately. Within a few months I had doubled my reflexology
practice ... because of this wonderful machine. Presently I am
working on 12 people a week. My goal is to have 20 regulars a
week. I am so excited because that is a conservative goal ...
a realistic projection for the growth of my little reflexology
clinic. My children are doing great and the relationship with
my husband is better than ever. He has always given me complete
support to become a Reflexologist .
Stephanie has been charging $20.00 for a 1 hour treatment. For
a 2 hour she gets $35.00. She attained her goal of 20 treatments
a week, but she had a third child recently: "With three
children I am so busy that I now limit myself to 15 customers
a week. That allows me time to care for the household; my husband
and three children."
May 10,2005 update:
"On November 1, 2004 I moved my 'Natural
Solutions' office to the Professional Center in downtown Thief
River Falls in North Western MN. I added a few services to my
business in order to 'pamper' current Reflexology clients and
draw in new people as well. By the end of December it appeared
my move was a good one.

"I have had my Reflexology business for
almost 5 year now and I don't regret one minute. Each year my
business has grown and I am so thankful I followed my dreams and
goals and had the strength to hang in there thru the slow times
to reach this point. Because this is my business, I am able to
schedule time off to be with my family and spend time with my
kids. I am coaching my sons soccer team for the second season,
because I can set my own hours. The flexibility is one of the
things I love about my career.
"My goal is to keep between 10 and 15 Reflexology
treatments on my books each week and fill in spaces here and there
with the other services I offer. That is where I am at now and
I have been keeping that steady each week since the start of the
new year. I have worked on babies with colic, women with fertility
problems, people with different types of pain, and many people
who just need to relax and relieve stress. It is such a gift to
know you have helped someone. People ask me where I work and I
have to think a minute because I don't feel like I go to 'work'
each day and I don't call it a 'job'. It feels like home to me
in my office and the people I work on feel like my guests. Yes,
I get paid for what I do, but I also get the reward when people
come back and say: "That treatment helped me so much."
"I enjoy every one of my clients and I
love what I do!! Growing up I always wanted to have my own business.
I didn't know what that would be, but when I decided on Reflexology
it just felt like the right place for me. I was so thankful to
find such a great school like The Modern Institute of Reflexology
and such helpful people like Zachary. I feel like this was the
turning point in my life and it not only gave me the career I
wanted, it also steered me in the right direction of my life,"

takes Modern Reflexology
to Arabic World.
Hisham AlJaser of Kuwait enrolled with Modern
Institute of Reflexology's Home Study Course. He purchased every
item not included in the HSCC package (the Percus-O-Matic 'jackhammer';
200 milliwatt Laser; Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer V-5) and completed
the reflexology course. He phoned Dr. Brinkerhoff in Denver with
"I like your method of reflexology because
it works better than the thumb walk technique which I learned
from another school. I want to come to Denver and get a franchise
of the INSTITUTE so I can teach this in the Arabic World."
& Hisham dine at
Lebanese Restaurant on initial meeting in Denver.
Hisham flew to Denver from Kuwait for a six day
review of the Institute's structure in order to reach an agreement
on obtaining a reflexology franchise. Dr. Brinkerhoff wanted to
make sure Hisham was qualified to teach the Full Spectrum Reflexology
Method and run a branch of M.I.R. By the third day Hisham finally
agreed to work on Zachary's wife since she apparently had a medical
need (otherwise he couldn't have touch her as a devoted Muslim).
Hisham laid Rachel on the floor and
went to work: pulling an arm here; pushing a leg there; manipulating
the bones of the feet like a Master craftsman; cracking the back
with what appeared to be a chiropractic manipulation. "These
are the techniques that are passed from Father to Son in the Arabic
world; and the meridian points I worked are Chinese Medicine,"
he said with a smile.

Afterwards Rachel took her husband
aside and excitedly reported: "This is the best reflexology
treatment I have ever had from any Bodyworker; at anytime in my
whole life. This man knows what he is doing. He is really, really
good." Immediately after Rachel's report on Hisham's effectiveness,
Zachary went back into the office to announce: "Hisham, you
have qualified for the reflexology franchise." The next two
days were spent conceiving a plan and coming up with a reflexology
program that would fit within the Arabic Culture.

Hisham further demonstrated his skill as a 7th
degree Black Belt in Brazilian Ju Jitsu; and talked of his experience
with another franchise he held with a Martial Arts school out
of England. "I have 30 Black Belt students under me; and
they have between 900 to 1000 students under themselves. I am
already organized with my cells in Morocco, Iraq, Lebanon and
Syria; so those are the countries I want to include in this reflexology
franchise agreement." A gentleman's agreement was
made with a handshake, a smile and a prayer ... and it
has been honored to this very day by both parties.
Hisham received his Certificate of Reflexology
Home Study Course Completion and was then further qualified for
the experiential Doctor of Reflexology diploma issued by the Modern
Institute of Reflexology Credential Confirmation Board (MIRCCB)
located in Hiawatha, Iowa. Upon his return to Kuwait Dr. Hisham
received the needed assistance from the Minister of Defense in
helping to establish the M.I.R. Branch; and just recently completed
a fourth class of first level foot reflexology training.
memorable visit to USA and M.I.R.
There are three levels of reflexology in the Kuwait
Branch of MIR. They are identified as (1) Foot Reflexology; (2)
Hand Reflexology; and (3) Ear Reflexology. "You will have
to come to Kuwait to help with the final training of our first
graduating class," said Hisham through a translator on 7/04/03.
"Dr. Zachary is becoming famous in Kuwait
through the work of this branch of the Institute. We are leading
the way for women to find a new freedom in Arabic Society; I am
developing a Reflexology course for women," reported Hisham.
Although Zachary is a disciple of Yahshua the
Messiah and Hisham is a disciple of Mohammed the prophet ... they
each developed a kinship between themselves during that six days
in Lakewood. A brotherhood in the Spirit of the Sovereign Creator
which is a bond that is closer than a fleshly brother. "I
am so sad to leave," said Hisham on the day of his departure.
"As Hisham left Denver for Kuwait I felt
part of me was leaving too," said Zachary. "We had developed
this very deep spiritual love that has never faltered to this
very day; and never will."

Marvals & Brinkerhoffs
dine in Little Cuba after Transcontinental Tutoring.
"Dear Zachary: It felt so good to receive
your Email and hear from you after so many years. I followed your
recommendation and went back to review your new reflexology Website
yesterday. I saw that there are a lot of new reflexology information
and things you have added over the last few years. The INSTITUTE
even has an advanced reflexology certificate available now? What
is the price of the new reflexology DRUMmer and the laser? Well,
I printed off every single page of the new reflexology Website
and was very proud showing everyone around our island of Aruba
that you are my reflexology teacher," wrote Marlyn Marvel
in a recent Email.
Marval admired the Big
Bus' cockpit as he studied the instrument panel and gazed
out the windshield.
She and her husband met with Dr. Brinkerhoff for
hands on reflexology tutoring aboard M.I.R.'s Transcontinental
Classroom in Miami, Florida.
"I think the hands on reflexology practice with a teacher
(which you formally required at that time) gave me the help I
needed. It enabled me get through the Reflexology Home
Study Program a lot easier and gave me insights to get started
in my new reflexology practice," wrote Marlyn as she reflected
on that memorable experience. "I certainly did enjoy meeting
you and Your wife Rachel, you are both very nice people. I will
always remember your hospitality and how you helped me to feel
right at home in your Big Bus ... the motor coach ... the Transcontinental
Marlyn and her husband returned to Aruba after
two days of reflexology tutoring
and a tour on board the TCC of Homestead, Florida just south of
the Miami International Airport Hilton (where they had met). Now
she was inspired to finish her reflexology studies and soon began
building her reflexology practice. "My reflexology clinic
that I opened is next to my house. I named it the M&M New
Age Center ... since I have added some other alternative healing
techniques into my reflexology practice which work well in combination
with Full Spectrum Reflexology."
This native of Aruba is very busy keeping her
household, attending a steady job, caring for both her children
and husband. But she continues to build for the future with her
reflexology practice: "Because I am still working at my old
job, I only have time to see one person a day, but on my two days
off ... I am able to schedule three appointments per day. I would
say that in a week I see about ten persons; and I make between
Af 350 to Af 500 a week; which is between $200 to $300 in United
States Dollars. So I average $250 USD a week."
Mrs. Marval certainly thinks this extra effort
to build her new reflexology practice has been worth the time.
She enjoys it and is making money too. "Every month my reflexology
practice makes our family an extra $1000 USD. I have all types
of clients from professional people to housewives; so this diversifies
my work and keeps it interesting. My only form of advertising
has been word-of-mouth."
Marlyn is planning to expand in the near future
if the present demand for her therapeutic reflexology services
continues to grow: "I might go full time next year if things
go the way I want this year. My desire is to open a Holistic center
which will feature Full Spectrum Reflexology as taught by the
INSTITUTE. Presently I charge Af 50.00 which is $30 USD, but the
competition only charges about Af 25.00 for a reflexology treatment.
"There are a lot of people giving reflexology
here on the Island, especially massage spas. However, none
of them perform it like the way you have taught me: the Full Spectrum
Reflexology Method. I always explain that my reflexology
technique is a little bit different than how the others do it.
Their fee of Af 25.00 is about $12,50 USD; which is a lesser charge
than mine, but my clients keep coming back and the clinic is wanting
to grow. Soon I will have to quit my job and make the jump to
full time reflexology practice."
This Islander has very deep feelings about the
INSTITUTE and the Full Spectrum Reflexology Method: "Definitely,
everything that I know about reflexology I learned from the Modern
Institute of Reflexology. It was worth my investment to take
the reflexology course and then to do the Transcontinental Classroom
by flying into Miami. On board the TCC I was able to receive
personal reflexology tutoring
from Zachary's hand. It meant so much to both my husband and I
to have that experience together.
"Zachary, it was very nice hearing from
you again after so long a time. I admire you for your perseverance
and for making all the reflexology research
that you do. You are always seeking to find out the best way to
do everything! You are truly a fighter and an example for a lot
of people. God Bless you. Love and Blessing," wrote Marlyn
Marval in an Email dated 9/07/2003.

USA Reflexology Profession.
Amarjit S. Ghuman came to the USA seeking a new
life. He grew up in India as a Sikh and received his schooling
in the medical professions. One of his internships involved making
special insoles for lepers to help protect the feet from developing
ulcers that result from prolonged pressure on bony prominence's.
"I made over 10,000 of these insoles while working at a Catholic
sanitarium. My work with feet in India must have inclined me towards
cooked an Indian meal for Zachary when he visited the
Detroit area for a Transcontinental Classroom visit with

Amarjit enrolled with the INSTITUTE in 1998 and
received a Transcontinental Classroom visit in the fall of that
year. "During the TCC
visit I expressed a desire to become a Naturopathic doctor, but
Dr. Brinkerhoff encouraged me to stick to my reflexology pursuit.
He explained that all of my experience making insoles to prevent
pressure on the lepers feet back in India; could be turned around
and applied as reflex pressure to area's needing reflexology activation.
He told me plainly that with all of my medical background I could
earn my Doctor of Reflexology
with just 2500 hours of reflexology practice," related reflexologist
Amarjit is a reflexology tutor for the INSTITUTE
and has also built a steady part-time reflexology practice that
has given him $600 of extra income each month; and a lot of good
reflexology experience toward attainment of his Doctor of Reflexology
diploma. "My business name is Homey Care Inc. which operates
in the Farmington Hills, Michigan area. I also have another location
in Dearborne. Most of my regular reflexology clients have long-standing
problems like closed head injury, arthritis and Cerebral Palsy;
which have responded well to my reflexology sessions. I have also
dealt with prostate cancer clients. In addition I have reflexology
recipients who call occasionally, plus a few new ones trickle
in by word of mouth."
Amarjit's recent marriage to Suknindar brought
him a ready made family, so he has maintained his steady job for
now. But Amarjit is steadily building toward a future as a full-time
Doctor of Reflexology. "Thank you Dr. Ghuman, for your caring
contribution to health care in the USA. We need more reflexology
practitioners with your commitment to humanity," stated Zachary
emphatically during Amarjit's recent visit to Denver Campus.
You can contact Amarjit Ghuman on his cell phone
@ 1-248-752-3497. Give him a call when you are in the Farmington
Hills area of Detroit, Michigan. You will enjoy the benefits of
his unique Indian style energy work that flows out of his reflexology
techniques which are founded on his solid background of medical
training and practice.
Amarjit made a break and came to the New World
where he became a reflexologist. May his bold move inspire you
as it has Dr. Brinkerhoff and others at the INSTITUTE.

From a Nuclear Trigger Maker
Into a ReflexoCurist Practitioner
Flats Nuclear production plant.
Virgil L. Kale em retired when the
federal government shut down Rocky Flats. The facility was the
site for manufacture of nuclear triggers for the big bombs. "I
used to make nuclear triggers for the USA nuclear strike force,
but after retirement Allah led me to the Modern Institute of Reflexology.
Here I found a total change in my direction. I went through their
ReflexoCure Program and became a ReflexoCurist". Virgil is
now a man of peace ... a Lay Minister of Foot ReflexoCure and
"After I graduated from the
INSTITUTE my wife suffered a stroke. I began ReflexoCure on her
big toes in an effort to help in her recovery. That toe on the
left foot really had a lot of pain; which reflected the stroke
on that same side of the body. I worked on her three times a week
which coincided with her trip to the treatment center. Her continued
improvement is partly attributable to the reflexology, but it
has been a hard three years," related Virgil to Dr. Brinkerhoff.
"I'm getting tired ... but willing to wind this project up
and get her maximum recovery."
Kaleem prepares his wife for a trip to the rehab center with
a little make-up and reflexology to the left great toe.
Two years ago Virgil made an important
decision and purchased the DRUMmer ReflexoCure machine aka Dr.
Riley's Ultra Massager. "When I started using the DRUMmer
reflexology/ReflexoCure machine on my wife's toes, it seemed to
be less painful and more effective. Last week in a meeting with
Dr. Zachary the suggestion was made that I step up the length
and intensity of her DRUMmer reflexology aka ReflexoCure treatments
a few notches in order to attempt a full recovery. I didn't want
to cause too much pain, but if pain will give increased recovery
.... then it has a purpose. Now my wife's ReflexoCure (reflexology)
treatments are longer and more intense .... but still not too
painful .... thanks to the DRUMmer ReflexoCure (reflexology) machine."
In a conversation with Zachary his
wife said, "Since Virgil has stepped up the intensity and
length of the DRUMmer ReflexoCure
(reflexology) treatment ... my rate of improvement has greatly
increased. I am doing so much better now. I am feeling wonderful."
Both Virgil and Zachary are anticipating a full recovery through
the dynamic of this advanced DRUMmer ReflexoCure (reflexology)
caught in action by Brother Jeff's Community Guide Magazine.
Over the years Virgil has seen his
greatest ReflexoCure (reflexology) successes helping folks with
pain in the legs, back and shoulders. "I have had some cases
where the sinuses really improved which made the recipients of
the treatment happy. I know this DRUMmer ReflexoCure (reflexology)
machine has a powerful effect on the digestive system because
I can hear the intestines start to growl when I work on the K1
median point," exclaimed Virgil. "People always seem
to feel good afterward ... I haven't had any negative feedback
However, now that Virgil has stepped
up the intensity of the DRUMmer ReflexoCure (reflexology) machine
treatment, he will be getting more negative side effects through
the greater dynamic of the increased photo-bio electrical cascade
and the resultant disequilibrium/equilibrium action at the cellular
Recently Virgil joined the team at

Denver, Colorado. A few of the many services include: Colon irrigation,
Detoxification programs, Healing Touch, Herbal body wraps, Massage
Therapy, Nutritional Counseling and of course Virgil's specialty
of Foot and Hand ReflexoCure aka Reflexology. "I make $25.00
a treatment over at the SOURCE when part of a package deal. Otherwise
a specialty reflexology treatment is $50.00. We have a great team.
I look forward to building a wonderful practice at this location."
is serious when it comes to administration of the DRUMmer.
Virgil still operates his private
Reflexocure (reflexology) practice out of his home: Phoenix
Reflexology Clinic at 3180 Downing Street in Denver. "I still
make house calls for my regulars that have been with me since
my early days as a Student in Training. I make from $50.00
to as little as $5.00 per ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment.
The people pay according to their ability. When I do ReflexoCure
(reflexology) on invalids there is no charge to them. As a Muslim
I have always considered ReflexoCure (reflexology) as a ministry
to help people in need. When I found out that the INSTITUTE had
a Commission as a Lay Minister of
Foot Reflexology ... I called to find out how to qualify.
I sure did want that special Commission."
When Virgil found out that he could
qualify as a Muslim for MIR's Commission ... he was ecstatic.
"Yes, I do agree to abide by the requirements: to
love my neighbor as myself, to love my enemies and to include
verbal prayer with a ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment if the
people so desire. My patients will know that I am a prayerful
man when they see the Commission hanging on the wall and it will
encourage them to request prayer during treatment.
If I detect through conversation
that a person is a strong Christian, then I offer to pray with
them. They always say yes. So I will then pray for Jesus to help
me give a good treatment and to help the client to receive healing
in their body."

Claims Reflexology Miracles!
On August 9, 2003, Pakistani Ijaz
Yamin Ansari discovered the INSTITUTE'S Website and became very
excited to learn the Full Spectrum Reflexology techniques.
Dear Sir: I live in Wazirabad, Pakistan, a city
of 5 million. I find on Internet that you are working to introduce
the Reflexology. I only heard its miracles, and want to study
reflexology. My present occupation is Homeopathic Doctor, I am
new in it. I am 21 years old. So this interest forces me to search
the college which can teach me to do better. I became very happy
that you are working at international level and you are also working
in distance learning courses. This is the good way to teach the
boys who are away from your college. I am really impressed with
your reflexology techniques because I never heard about such a
method. I want to study reflexology from your college. Your reflexology
course is covering more great features than all others. Please
help me to get this reflexology course. Thanks.
Yours obediently ... Ijaz Yamin Ansari
Dear Zachary: I have received the parcel by paying 4230 Rs. I am
very happy with this and starting my new reflexology career. Dear,
tell me the time that on one reflexology point I put the DRUMmer
reflexology machine so I can be able to reflex the point. And explain
me about the uses of the different DRUMmer reflexology tips. For
example what tip on what point is better work or in what disease
what tip can better work. DRUMmer reflexology hand piece head gets
heated when I use it after 5 minutes, so what can I do with this?
And also send me the explanation on arthritis
or gout reflexology points which can cure sooner arthritis pain.
I will try my best for doing better and for the development of
reflexology in Pakistan, and treat patients with kind heartedness.
Thanks for helping guidance.
I do a prayer from ALLAH for me and you and DRUMmer
reflexology machine... Ijaz.
Dear Zachary Brinkerhoff: A big patient in the

and he has a well running barber shop. I told him about reflexology's
Miracles so he came to me and I treated him with DRUMmer reflexology
machine and laser light lamp. Now He is feeling better in his
chest congestion and pain with cough. After he is feeling better
he will refer some other patients.

I am also a computer hardware engineer. And at the end of picture
is also another brother which is reading in class 5 and also has
ability to handle both the computer and DRUMmer reflexology machine.
Your Loving Student ... Ijaz.
Dear Zachary: I saw the DRUMmer reflexology machine video more than
15 times. I wish to see the video and way of teaching (which very,
very good) again and again when I am in my little clinic. DRUMmer
reflexology machine is the miracle of the modern Science technology.
It gives result on every body that I apply it as you demonstrate
in video. Every one gave positive feedback (feeling better) after
5 or 6 minutes. I was surprised what a wonderful results it gave.
I pray to ALL MIGHTY ALLAH: make me to be helpful to HIS human beings.
I will try my best to make a sweet smile to those who are worried
about their physical and mental condition.
Thanks for your greatest guidance ... Ijaz.
Dear Zachary: I am so sorry that I can not reply
you sooner. I am so busy in reflexology studying that I forgot
to check my Email in box and away from the computer. I did not
receive lesson #2 because my Email box is full now I will send
you another Email address so I could able to download my lessons.
Thanks for your emailing instruction and I have
also not forgotten you and your spiritual kindness.
Your Loving Student ... Ijaz Yamin Ansari
Dear Zachary: I am very happy and getting very
good results with Beamer and DRUMmer reflexology machine. I have
only one question about Beamer? Is the red Beamer light equal
to the red of colour therapy? Because in colour therapy it has
also good results and it stimulates all the body and aura. And
tell me about that patient which I cured on first treatment with
DRUMmer reflexology machine, but 2 days later he came to me and
told me that the problem is persistent Now what do I do with him?
He is suffering in arthritis. Also tell me how many lines I could
take for one patient?
I cured many patients with only first treatment
with DRUMmer reflexology machine and ear reflexology massage.
I found that Reflexology is more faster healing method than any
other healing method like homeopathy, allopathic, herbal etc.
Yours Loving student ... Ijaz Yamin Ansari
Dear Zachary: Thanks for great guidance. I am
always doing reflexology on foot point according to the problem.
For this I prepared a reflexology bed chair in Pakistan with remote
control. I also always pressure on K1 point with DRUMmer reflexology
machine in my daily practices which give good result. As you advise
me to go to river and got two stone for K1, so I will go today
to achieve this target. Because a big Pakistan river CHANAB is
near to the Wazirabad.
Dear can you send me that K1 point diagram which
I see on your Website in a big picture and then print out that?
When I pressure on K1, I want other people to see it for Placebo

DEAR ZACHARY: I have a Christian patient Name
Ravis George. He came to me for his left shoulder stiffness and
both forearm pain. After two massage with DRUMmer reflexology
machine he is feeling much better. I also give him some Homeopathic
medicine to speedy up the process of healing. He is a poor worker
and is not able to give me the fee for DRUMmer reflexology machine
treatment; that is why I did not ask him for fee because my aim
is to help those people who are suffering in problems. If I asked
my fee from Ravis, then he will not able to come back to me again
for reflexology. I do not want that to happen. I want to introduce
the DRUMmer reflexology machine to many, many people in Pakistan
not only in my city of Wazirabad. Thanks for emailing me and remembering
me in prayer.
Yours Loving Student ... Ijaz Yamin Ansari

Israeli Physician Impressed
by DRUMmer Treatment.
Shimon Rochkind, MD, Sorasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel
shows his pleasure and joy following a positive outcome of a Full
Spectrum Reflexology treatment prescribed by him for a brain injury
patient during 2002 NAALT Conference in Atlanta, GA, USA.
Dr. Rochkind wasn't sure what reflexology
was all about when he accepted an invitation from Zachary Brinkerhoff
to experience the DRUMmer reflexology machine aka Dr. Riley's
Ultra Massager. He had met Zachary at the '98 WALT Conference
in Kansas City and visited with him on brief occasions during
subsequent NAALT Conferences held here in the USA, but didn't
really understand what a doctor of reflexology was?
Reflex Beamer III-3b
It was the last day of the Atlanta
NAALT Conference when Dr. Brinkerhoff finally made a presentation
when called upon at the Expert Panel Discussion. His brief on
the systemic-effect within the human frame (which he induced by
non coherent red/near-infrared light energy) had contradicted
Shimon's research published 30 years past. However, M.I.R. Research
and Development Clinic studies showed that there was a systemic-effect
upon the human frame induced by both incoherent and low level
laser light. Shimon was a little unsettled with this new report
on the systemic-effect.
The day after the Conference Zachary
had an opportunity to visit with Shimon about the Israeli/Palestinian
conflict while visiting in the hotel restaurant. He shared his
viewpoint that the Israeli's had the greatest responsibility to
settle their ongoing dispute (with which Rochkind disagreed).
When Zachary had made his point ... the issue was dropped in order
to avoid any argumentation. Then, just an hour later, Zachary
was offering Shimon an opportunity for a free post-conference
demo of his profession: a reflexology treatment with the DRUMmer
Rochkind, MD, was amazed with the results of
the DRUMmer reflex action.
A combination of humility, professionalism
and curiosity moved Shimon to accept the offer and he was startled
at his body's response: "I can't understand how that jackhammer
machine pounding on the bottom of my foot at 4,400 impacts per
minute (which does feel good) can cause me to feel sensations
all over my body at specific points. I have never experienced
anything like this," exclaimed Shimon, "I just
don't understand what is going on?"
Following his brief ten minute DRUMmer
reflexology treatment, Shimon was so impressed that he made a
request of Zachary: "There is a resident of Atlanta who
survived a bullet wound to the head in the Atlanta Trade Center
shooting 2 years ago. As a Russian Jew he turned to Israel for
help in his recovery, but there is nothing we can do for his remaining
paralysis. I have an appointment with him here at the hotel in
30 minutes. Will you give him a DRUMmer reflexology machine treatment?
Do you think reflexology can help him?"
Zachary assured Shimon that the reflexology
would help and agreed to give his patient a Full Spectrum Reflexology
treatment. Thirty minutes later Yosef hobbled into the restaurant
leaning on his cane with his wife at his side. As they seated
themselves at the restaurant table for consultation, Zachary explained
to Yosef and his wife that he would concentrate reflexology treatment
on the K1 meridian point located on the bottom of each foot; and
also on the ends of his toes ... using the Texas Toe-Nut
reflex tip. This would be followed by radiation to the dorsum
(top) of his bare feet using the red/near-infrared rays of the
Photon Beamer VI-6.
"When you come out of the
sedation state following exposure to the Reflexology Beamer, your
right hand (now clenched into a fist) will open smoothly and lay
flat. This will be an indicator of the ability of this dynamic
reflexology treatment to affect the injured area in your brain.
This will be a first step ... a means to encouraged you to continue
daily self-help reflexology treatment at home in order to attain
your maximum potential for recovery which could take up to a year."
wife was very pleased when she saw Yosef's hand stay open.
Yosef seated himself in the chair
and submitted his right foot for treatment. After 20 minutes of
intense DRUMmer reflexology machine treatment to the K1 and then
all ten toes, Yosef's feet were put under the Beamer for the second
stage of reflexology treatment.
This reflexology treatment was conducted
under the scrutiny of Dr. Rochkind who kept asking the recipient:
"Yosef, your hand, how is your hand?" Each time
Yosef would respond by trying to unclench his fist by pulling
on the fingers, but the fist would not remain unclenched. However,
Shimon seemed to remain hopeful.
When Zachary observed Yosef's emergence
from the sedation state, he turned off the Beamer and commented:
"Reflexology treatment is over." Immediately
Shimon jumped up from his chair and ran around the table to Yosef's
side. "Yosef, give me your hand ... let me see your hand."
and his wife were told by Dr. Rochkind that insurance
would pay for M.I.R.'s Home Study upon receipt of his
prescription in order that they have the equipment to
finish the treatment program. An Israeli Physicians order!
As Shimon lifted Yosef's hand into
his open palm... he pulled his Yosef's fingers back to open the
fist. To both their amazement the fingers laid flat and stayed
in position ... the hand stayed open ... the fist was gone.
Shimon stood in awe ... looking at
the open hand. When he realized that the hand was going to stay
open, he look up, pointing his finger at Zachary, and said, "You
have a job in Israel."
Zachary knew Dr. Rochkind's invitation
to work in Israel was sincere, so he responded with a counter
offer: "I will be happy to visit Israel in order to train
one person in each Israeli hospital in our Full Spectrum Reflexology
techniques; which you have witnessed here today. But I will have
to give equal time by sharing my advanced reflexology techniques
with the Palestinians too."
Shimon responded immediately: "I
perform medical services for Palestinians too. I understand your
need to give them equal time."
However, Zachary's trip to Israel
was postponed indefinitely by an emergency back surgery to strengthen
a Charcot sacrum joint. His plan for bringing these advanced reflexology
techniques to Israel through Shimon Rochkind's invitation hit
a snag. However, new opportunity presented itself to accomplish
the original mission when MIR enrolled the
first student from Israel: the Reb Dovid Wheeler.
R' Dovid Wheeler treats recipient at his home
clinic in the Judean Hills of Israel.
R' Dovid initially studied with The School
of Natural Health Sciences in London via correspondence. He
was awarded a Diploma in Reflexology with a grade of 'A' which
led to his interest in the offerings of the Modern Institute of
Reflexology and their strong advocacy of reflexology instruments.
"Zachary, I just wanted to say thank you so much for your
time last night on the phone. I have been studying your Website
for six months and am so excited about this opportunity to get
started with your program. Hopefully I will be able to represent
MIR here in Israel as we previously discussed," said
Dovid via Email.

reflex point on the great toe of a believing recipient.
The Home Study Package arrived simultaneously
with his first child ... a healthy 7.5 pound son. "I did
receive the package and I have started to read the material (WOW
there is a lot to read) but I also need to work with my wife and
new child as well."
R' Dovid's wife has been the initial
recipient of her husbands practicum requirement to accumulate
100 hours of reflex experience. "I am so excited about
reflexology ... I can hardly sit still. I'm having great results
working on my wife Rachel's post pregnancy issues. We have been
doing Reflex Beamer work daily (started at 7 minutes and now going
to 30 min ) and on alternate days stimulating the key foot reflexes
with Dr. Wittman's Reflex-O-Massager. In just two days she noticed
"On April 5th Meir had another
attack, but with a new found intuitive confidence I just jammed
my index finger (the thumb I find is too strong for his little
foot) into the K1 points. After a few moments he was very much
sedated. I felt relieved for two reasons: a] I had always been
afraid that I would hurt him (being unable to get verbal feed
back about how strong I was working) and, b] Yet knowing that
strong reflex stimulus really worked ... and that I should have
more Bitachon (trust from above) that what I am doing (whether
too strong or not) is the correct thing to be doing. Again, thanks
Zacharyah, for your encouragement to be more aggressive in treatment,"
wrote Dovid in a recent Email.
"I have not been working
regularly on Rachel for the last week or so ... since the Reflex
Beamer I-1 overloaded my converter. She really enjoyed the Beamer
part of the treatment and has missed the comfort and healing of
its soothing radiant energy. Her symptoms quickly disappeared
after the deep, heavy reflex treatments which I applied immediately
after the delivery of our son. Then I lightened up and put her
on a regular program: alternating between the Reflex-O-Massager
and the Reflex Beamer I-1 every other day. Once the new 240 volt
BEAMER III-3b arrives, we will go back to our regular reflexology
maintenance program. We are planning to arrange her treatments
around Meir's feeding schedule."

Shahrazad's travels all over the world have given
her a chance to receive reflexology treatments in Thailand, Philippines,
Taiwan, and Sri Lanka. As a result of this experience, reflexology
became like a passion which inspired her to collect charts and
practice on herself and her many loved ones. "My best
patient is my husband who was diagnosed with prostate cancer while
visiting in the USA. They wanted to operate on him right away,
but I begged him not to ... and he agreed to try an alternative
approach to treatment."

Shahrazad and her husband returned to the kingdom
in order to deal with this life-threatening disease. He changed
his hectic businessman lifestyle, started a new diet, they both
prayed a lot, and she began daily finger pressure on the reflexology
points for the prostate gland located on both feet and hands.
Six months later he went in for another test to
check for prostate cancer: it was negative. And to this day, according
to periodic medical scans, her husband remains cancer free.
"After our success with reversing my husband's cancer, he
began to encourage me to seek more knowledge in the science of
reflexology because of his unresolved lower back pain. My queries
led me to enroll with the MIR Home Study Reflexology Program which
introduced me to percussion machines and radiant energy ray lamps.

Shahrazad has been blessed with a great variety
of successful reflexology outcomes. An MND (motor neuron disease)
patient is a very dear friend who was sent home with little hope.
He was in such a state of daily degeneration that she offered
him a reflexology treatment in hope that it might help. They both
prayed that reflexology could somehow stop his downward spiral
and begin to improve his quality of life. "My friend tells
me that after every treatment he feels like someone filled his
batteries. Since he doesn't live here in the kingdom, I taught
his nurse how to help him with reflexology when they aren't able
to make the return trip for the next needed treatment (his nurse
was my first reflexology student)."

Where do the roots of Shahrazad's
calling to reflexology originate? She thinks it occurred at the
age of twelve when she was attacked by a virus which paralyzed
the upper right side of her body. In those days there was no medical
treatment available, so the doctors sent her home with no hope
for recovery. But her Mother refused to rest until she found a
solution for her daughter's paralysis ... the answer turned out
to be reflexology. "I understand now that I was treated
by reflexology," stated Shahrazad with a reflective thought.
"I remember how something
'clicked' one day in my body and at that moment I began to improve.
Although it took lots of reflexology and many months to fully
recover, my Mother never gave up. She wanted to assure that I
would never miss another day in school again."
Nora gives her daddy hand reflexology.
When Shahrazad first began to learn
the art of reflexology by practicing on loved ones, she noticed
a consistent manifestation that caught her attention and interest.
The moment that she would take the feet of an ill recipient into
her hands ... a strange feeling would occur. She felt as if she
had entered into the inquirer's body. In some cases drops of sweat
would begin dripping from her forehead, even though the cooling
system might even be on coldest setting.
"After experiencing such
a reflexology outcome, I will feel very drained. But following
several treatments with the same person this phenomena will usually
cease. It is like a heavy load has suddenly been lifted. When
this point in the process has been reached, the recipient will
confess that they feel refreshed ... feel like a new person. What
a joy to be a part in such a healing," she exclaimed
with a smile.
Riley's Ultra Massager
"The DRUMmer reflexology
machine has taken the pressure off of my thumb joints when giving
the deeper type reflexology treatment required in some cases,"
she said. "This handheld reflexology percussion device
may also enhance reflexology treatment outcome ... when combined
with the Reflex Beamer infrared ray lamp. I pray that God Almighty
may continue to give Dr. Brinkerhoff the strength to keep up this
great work of the Modern Institute and enable him to contribute
