treats his Mother in her Denver home. (Photo 1988.)
Mother (1995) JEANNE P. BRINKERHOFF,
Denver, Colorado: "My eldest son has been faithful to
give me reflexology on my demand over the last 28 years. As I
struggled with an inoperable condition this last year, Zachary
has willingly come to my home at least once a week to give me
reflexology. He has always followed my instruction as to the type
of treatment that I felt I needed ... which might vary from visit
to visit. Zachary has kept me well supplied over the years with
different reflex stimulus machines and tools. This enabled me
to effectively work the reflexes on my own feet every day.
"I recently rushed to Afoot Connection
Reflexology Center in my car during a snow squall because I sensed
something was not right with my heart. As I entered the clinic
door my heart went into a severe state of failure ... ventricular
fibrillation. Although I didn't have an appointment ... my son
interrupted the treatment of a regular client when he saw my condition.
He went into an emergency mode in my behalf after placing me in
a spare reflexology chair.
"My state of trembling and the gray color
of my face revealed the crises to him ... he knew I had less than
3 minutes to live unless my heart could be defibrillated. If my
son had called an EMT I would have been dead by the time they
arrived. But Zachary honored my belief in reflexology by addressing
my situation with a reflexology technique as taught to him by
Eunice Ingham. He was able to bring me out of the throes of death
within 20 seconds by using a very deep and painful finger pressure
on my heart reflexology point of the left foot.
"I am certainly grateful for all the treatments
he has given me and the good he has also done for so many other
people since his initial reflexology training back in 1967."
(In this individual case Zachary postulates
that the heart was able to undergo defibrillation through the
current of electricity created by the finger pressure on the sore
reflex. This electrical response is identified scientifically
as the direct current of injury which
signals the brain to release the direct current of regeneration
from the brain. This current of regeneration is an important aspect
of the body's self-healing mechanism.)
Gangrene Almost Took
Scottie was a diabetic who lost control of his blood sugar and the doctor had to take his toes - all ten of them as pictured in the above photo. "Several years later the bottom of my right foot was so deteriorated with another round of gangrene that the doctor said he was going to have to take my leg at the knee. That is when a nurse sent me to see Master Reflexologist Kathie Graham. She removed all the dead tissue and began to expose my dying foot to the light energy of the Reflex Beamer III-3b and her 200mW 830nm Low Level Laser Instrument. The result of daily treatments for a period of 2 months have totally reversed my condition. Last week I got paid for repairing my neighbor's fence - I am able to work part-time again."
Scottie came to MIR Clinic with ReflexoCurist Graham for a round of High Power Laser Therapy with the Galium Arsenide 80,000mW (240mW output) reflex laser instrument pictured above. (Stay tuned for the completion of this healing - coming soon.)
Master Service Tech (1995) TED FINK, Denver, Colorado: "A
Doctor of Reflexology named Zachary Brinkerhoff offered to give
me a free demonstration of Full Spectrum Reflexology one year
ago when I was here under contract at Afoot Connection Reflexology
Center in Lakewood repairing his Lanier Copier. He suggested that
my chronic back pain could be healed by reflex stimulation on
my feet, so I submitted to treatment.
"All signs of sciatica disappeared during administration
of foot reflex stimulation by Dr. Brinkerhoff and the pain down
my leg has not returned since that first treatment. During the
1 1/2 hour session
he employed a pneumatic air hammer tool that rattled my cage,
a Wooden Probe that was extremely painful, an oscillator machine
that shook me up, and alignment of the bones in my feet which
felt good (it was similar to a chiropractic adjustment of the
"I had been under the regular care of a chiropractor for
five years with no improvement in my condition. However, the spinal
correction created by Full Spectrum Reflexology stands validated
by the total absence of sciatic leg pain for the past year.
"When I finished today's repair on Brinkerhoff's Lanier,
he stuck a $20.00 bill into my hand for a job well done. When
I refused the tip he looked really surprised and insisted that
I take the money, until explanation that I would rather have another
ReflexoCure Treatment. It was during today's session that I related
my sciatica cure. Hence this letter.
(Ted's back was still strong six months later, but he was
transferred and no further contact has been established.)
Served on MIR Advisory Board
Podiatrist (1994) ROBERT TIMM, DPM, Grand Junction, Colorado:
I wish to verify that several months ago I was contacted by Dr.
Zachary Brinkerhoff. He requested that I objectively evaluate
and critique the reflexology course that he offered at the Modern
Institute of Reflexology.
Pursuant to this, I subsequently visited his clinic on numerous
occasions. I carefully reviewed the didactic as well as the clinical
portions of his course. Then I researched the Colorado State requirements
for occupational education.
My investigation showed that the reflexology course
given by the Modern Institute of Reflexology is extremely comprehensive.
Its content meets and in some instances exceeds the requirements
of Colorado occupational education.
To further check on Brinkerhoff's competency as a reflexologist,
I arranged for a certified reflexologist a (who I have known for
years) to visit him as a patient. Following her visit, the reflexologist
reported to me that she was extremely impressed with both his
knowledge of reflexology and his manual and instrumental techniques.
Apparently, there is some dissension between different organizations
within the reflexology profession regarding the use of instruments.
After researching the history of reflexology, it was apparent
that the originators of the profession, including Eunice Ingham,
used and recommended the use of instruments. The dissension is
undoubtedly a difference of opinion within the profession that
should be solved internally.
After becoming a member of the MIR Advisory Board I proceeded
to help Brinkerhoff reverse the Dr. Harvey Lampell bone alignment
so that he could perform the Hiss Bone Set Technique from his
wheelchair. Now he can work on a patient who is reclined in a
LaFuma while sitting in his wheelchair.

Fixes Rolfer's Jet Lag
Body Worker (1993) BRITT EWING, Lakewood,
Colorado: "Twice I have gone to Afoot Connection Reflexology
Center for cure of Terminal Jet Lag. This bio electrical
imbalance resulted from my continuous international travels required
to meet the demand as a teacher of a new painless Rolfing Technique
that I developed.
"On my first visit of April 9, 1993 my body
was drawn to the right side, but a combination of the Percus-O-Matic
jackhammer and Sonic Massager applied to the reflexes in my feet
... straightened me up on the spot. Zachary's unique treatment
put me back into a state of perfect equilibrium or balance.
"I plan to bring my friend Steven in for a treatment,"
"I came for my second treatment on August
3, 1995. This time Zachary combined the effect of a new 100 milliwatts
infrared laser as a part of his expanded treatment protocol. I
experienced the results that he guaranteed on every visit! I plan
to bring my good friend Steven Seagal to Afoot Connection Reflexology
Center for one of these Full Spectrum Reflexology treatments.
Steven loves my body work and I know he will certainly appreciate
the dynamic of this jackhammer and laser combination."
Sadly, Britt died suddenly ... before he could
arrange Seagal's reflexology treatment. A chronic asthma attack
occurred while hiking with his daughter into a Red Rocks Concert
near Denver. He succumbed within minutes. "Britt's unexpected
death was a great loss to the Holistic Health Care Family and
I extend my deepest sense of sorrow to his daughter and many friends
for this tragedy. Brother Ewing certainly found a place in my
heart ... I will remember him with fondness forever," relayed
Regress with ReflexoCure
avoided surgery for her cataracts using reflexology.
Recipient (1992) DARLENE CATE, Denver,
Colorado: "My surgeon canceled the cataract surgery for
my eyes on April 30, 1992 following a 1/2 hour Full Spectrum Reflexology
treatment and 3 weeks of self-help. My eyes pulsed for 24 hours
after the initial reflex stimulation with the Percus-O-Matic 'jackhammer',
but I could see clearly by the next morning when I noticed that
the pulsing had stopped. It was great to confirm that specifically
applied reflexology to the toes could make cataract surgery unnecessary
... in my particular case."
Darlene had once been successful dissolving her
cataracts five years earlier by combining reflexology with vitamin/mineral
supplements. At that time they began to bother her during participation
in a transcontinental hike across the USA "I wasn't sure
if it was the vitamins or the self-administered reflex stimulus
back then, so I came to you for dynamic professional treatment
and found out it was the reflexology alone."
Several years after avoiding surgery ... the
cataracts began to redevelop. "After evaluating the causative
factor of their return, I realized it was due to a deeply negative
emotional experience. So I came back to Zach for another "jackhammer"
treatment to help me break that emotional syndrome. It worked
Senior Judge (1988) RICHARD TURELLI, Castle Rock, Colorado:
"While suffering from essential hypertension of a career
in the judiciary, I have sought medical assistance from specialists
in the fields of internal medicine, endocrinology, osteopathy
and chiropractic. None of their treatments or medications have
brought me a cure! By contrast, the FOOT REFLEXOLOGY sessions
administered by Brinkerhoff have helped maintain me! Without exception,
my blood pressure has dropped dramatically following his unique
relaxation therapy. Between visits I use the TS-930 electric foot
roller daily to maintain my electro/chemical balance. Brinkerhoff's
love and professional care have never failed to help and encourage
me since 1972."
Richard always benefits from the old "jackhammer" which
causes him to go into a deep belly type laughter. The laughter
lasts about 5 to 10 minutes before he goes into a deep sedation
state which lasts for the rest of the treatment. He has a deep
interest in herbs and is frequently calling Zachary with a new
discovery that he has found or wonderful experience of relief
that he has experienced. Jurist Doctor Turelli has become a Master
of Herbs over the last 35 years which he continues to share with
his friend Zachary.

My Dearest Brother Zachary:
I left your office so elated with your foot
treatment. I felt it up to the top of my thighs. The warm glow
lasted until I arrived at my home later that same night in Placerville,
Even though you generously gave me that wonderful
treatment ... refusing payment ... I've enclosed a $60.00 check.
It was worth all of that and more.
And you look so terrific! Keep up your great
work ... the world is a much better place with you in it! I'm
so glad you are my friend.

Recipient (1990) MARILYN NORMAN, Lakewood,
CO: Marilyn turned to the local yellow pages hoping to find
help from a Reflexologist. I called Afoot Connection Reflexology
Center and made an appointment for my first reflexocure treatment
... October 30, 1990. The practitioner seemed confident reflexology
could bring me relief from my yeast infection and the pain I was
suffering in my neck. My special pillow wasnt helping very
much and I needed some kind of relief, related Marilyn.
I was surprised when I arrived and found my Reflexologist
was a paraplegic in a wheelchair, but he sure gave me a knockout
It all started with a medical history and
a full disclosure that warned me of possible side-effects from
what was termed Full Spectrum Reflexology treatment. It appeared
that Afoot Connections techniques included instruments and
machines that were supposed to give a greater dynamic in reflex
stimulation. I wanted help. I was ready to get on with the show,
Marilyn relates how much she loved the first phase
of treatment ... a hot whirlpool foot bathThere were four
powerful jets pounding my feet which felt wonderful. As the water
gradually turned hot I began to perspire. When my face turned
red Zachary shut off the pump and swiveled my chair 90 degrees
where he placed my feet on a Turkish towel. He gently dried them
and placed fresh cotton socks on my feet before flipping the switch
to the McDowell Oscillator which was hiding under that towel.
Never in my life have I experienced such violent
action upon my feet. As the oscillator plate went into motion
... my feet became a blur before my eyes ... but it felt great.
During this time Zachary was pressing reflex points on the tops
of my feet ... some of which produced a little pain. But
the best part of the oscillation was to come when the switch was
Zachary told me to close my eyes before he
shut this machine down, said Marilyn. He wanted me
to keep my eyes closed until all sensations subsided. He said
it would be like going on a little trip ... a trip into the experience
of observing the effect of reflex activation on the body. Wow!!
Was he right!! It felt like all this heaviness was sinking down
into my feet. It felt like the heaviness was running out of my
toes. The swell of energy was so overwhelming that I squinted
my eyes even more tightly closed. I felt like I was floating in
the heavens. What a rush. I think that I kept my eyes shut for
about 10 minutes before all the sensations generated by the oscillator
finally resolved. And when I finally opened my eyes it was like
stepping into a new world.
Waiting in Treatment Room #2 was an over stuffed
recliner into which Marilyn lost herself. As if the oscillator
wasnt enough stimulation for the average person on their
first visit ... she got hit with another machine called the Percus-O-Matic
jackhammer. He worked both my feet with that
air-powered percussion machine like there was no end in sight
... and I didnt ever want him to stop, explained Marilyn.
I love anything that has to do with feet, but this was the
ultimate. I knew I had come to the right place if it was help
that I needed. And it was help that I got ... delivered in a way
that I could never forget.
Her treatment lasted one and a half hours. There
was some finger work to the neck reflex and some probe pressure
technique. When Zachary finished the treatment? I was out
... totally relaxed. My body felt like it was totally integrated.
I felt at peace. Since I was on a tight budget Zachary obliged
by only charging for an hour. I couldnt have been more pleased,
but budget constraints and other distractions prevented me from
returning for my second treatment at Afoot Connection.
I held this wonderful treasure of reflexology
experience in my heart for over 14 years before returning for
my second round. As I once again picked up the phone to make another
appointment, I wondered if the guy in the wheelchair would still
be around? As I heard the phone ringing I further wondered? Would
his treatment today be equal to his treatment of yesteryear?
Wittman's Reflex-O-Massager was part of Marilyn's 2nd
treatment 14 years later
I am happy to report that my second treatment
at Afoot Connection by Zachary Brinkerhoff on March 4, 2005 was
equal to my first treatment ... maybe even better. I was disappointed
that the foot bath and oscillator and Percus-O-Matic jackhammer
had been discontinued and replaced, but the radiant energy lamps
on my feet and the new Dr. Rileys Percussive Massager left
nothing to be desired when it came to the the sense of exhalation
as well as the end result. (I loved that 2 tip, but not
especially the 3/8 stainless probe tip.) I came out glowing
like a firefly in full bioluminescense ... filling the dark night
with their radiant light.
Whatever hesitancy Marilyn Norman might have had
to return for regular treatment since 1990 ... it is forever gone.
I have decided to come in for reflexology treatment on a
regular monthly schedule. This is something I intend to do from
now on ... tight finances or not. Ill just consider it part
of my healthcare program ... I am beginning to understand the
value of preventive maintenance.

Lauds Ethics of MIR Clinic
W.R. Ross, DPM
Podiatrist (1994) WILLIAM R. ROSS, Denver, Colorado: This
is my personal statement regarding the clinical competence and
adherence to accepted ethics of MIR Clinic aka Afoot Connection
Reflexology Center located at 4086 Youngfield, Wheat Ridge,
Colorado. My sixty-one years of podiatry experience (20 years
as Chief of Foot Clinic at Denver General Hospital) allow me the
ability to judge Zachary Brinkerhoff, DR, and his operation among
the best I've had the privilege to visit as a patient. All of
his procedures are in accordance with my philosophy: surgery
of the foot should never even be considered until all conservative
measures have been tried.
The treatment I received at MIR Clinic was a very pleasant experience
and I felt right at home under Dr. Brinkerhoff's care. I was thrilled
to find that the Reflexologists at MIR Clinic have been trained
in the Hiss Technique of foot joint manipulation.
I have also been honored with a request to teach the ROSS/HISS
METHOD to students at the Modern Institute of Reflexology; which
I have accepted because unnecessary surgeries have been a poor
substitute for skilled joint corrections through proper alignment
Nurse Gets Help
& Fran Buchholz
Licensed PN, (2004), FRAN & DENNIS
BUCHHOLZ, Lakewood, Colorado: "When I stood up at
the end of my first ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment ... I
could stand and walk without pain. It was almost unbelievable.
I had suffered under misdirected treatment of foot pain from ten
various doctors for the previous four years with no relief in
sight. I had endured 4 pair of foot orthosis and a stint with
casts on both my feet when my husband brought me to Afoot Connection
Reflexology Center. I was overweight due to inactivity, very depressed
and without much hope.
Buchholz, LPN under treatment at
Dr. Zachary didn't bat an eye as I told him my
unhappy story. He confidently began to apply Full Spectrum Reflexology
to my feet with a big smile. The Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer
III-3c was first shined on my stocking clad feet which felt sort
of good, but then came the DRUMmer reflexocure machine which at
times was extremely painful on certain reflex points. I found
myself screaming and groaning in agony, but he just kept working.
By my second session Zachary had crafted a customized wooden probe
reflex tip for the DRUMmer. It cupped around the contour of my
heel in order to reach a key reflex point he had found there.
The action felt wonderful ... though somewhat painful at times,
but it got the job done.
Beamer III-3c radiates Fran's feet.
My newfound ReflexoCurist explained that my body
had a healing process to go through which could take up to six
months, but required my participation by improving my diet and
continuing with prayer and self-treatment everyday at home. He
has continued to include believing prayer and thanksgiving to
the Sovereign Creator and His Beloved Son with each treatment.
"If we include the Heavenly Father in each treatment it
will help keep the human ego out of the equation," he
told me rather pointedly.
However, my husband is convinced that these good
results are due to Zachary's good judgment and wisdom in application
of the knowledge he has gained over the last 37 years of practice.
He probably feels that way because his prostate restriction was
corrected after his first reflexocure treatment. "Hey,
I am urinating like an elephant now," exclaimed Dennis
with a big smile on his face.
Now that my feet seem to be out of crises ...
we are working on other areas of weakness in my mid-back and neck.
My husband and I each bought our own Beamer III-3b at the recommendation
of Zachary. He had encouraged us to use them at home between treatments
in order to assure our complete recovery. He cross-examined me
when I complained that I wasn't making the promised recovery ...
and he nailed me when I confessed to be giving myself only 10
minute exposures instead of the recommended 1 to 2 hour home treatments.
Now that I am following his suggestion ... I must confess my progress
is much better. Of course he continues to offer prayer on each
follow up visit.
"Hope begins in the dark,
the stubborn hope
that if you just show up
and try to do the right thing,
the dawn will come.
You wait and watch and work:
you don't give up."
– Anne Lamott
Update 2006: I recently
came in to visit with Zachary after over a years absence and give
him the good report on treatment of my mid-back and neck problem.
Yes, my back and neck are completely recovered: cured if you please.
I am fully functional because I followed his instruction that
required me to shine the Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer III-3b
on the problem area for at least two hours a day.
I am so impressed with Full Spectrum Reflexology
that I have started studying with the INSTITUTE and hope to eventually
travel with the Transcontinental Classroom II (our new RV) in
order to help provide Tutoring for Students across the USA.
Praises God and Dances
worked on Glafira's feet reflexes for over an hour in order
to help her back.
Patient (1968) GLAFIRA FLEMMING, Desert
Hot Springs, California: It was 10:00 PM and Zachary was closing
up his Zone Therapy Clinic located at the Fountain of Youth Mineral
Spring when a car sped up in a cloud of dust and skidded to a
stop. Three young Mexican boys jumped out and came running over
to the closing door. They pleaded with Zachary to work on their
Auntie's bad back before shutting the door. "Her back
was so bad it took all three of them to shove her up the big step
and into the truck. I worked on her for an hour ... then I had
her stand on the oscillator for 5 minutes," remembers Zachary.
"I know that God sent me to Zachary
Brinkerhoff because he cured my back in only 1 hour with Zone
Reflex on my feet," said Glafira. "I was overweight
at 62 years of age and filled with nervous tension over my daughters
marriage. I had been taking thyroid for over 27 years when my
three nephews drove me that long 35 miles to the Mineral Spa for
my first reflex treatment. I felt so wonderful at the conclusion
of my session (when the oscillator shut off) that I danced all
around the little clinic praising God. Zachary didn't want to
take my last $10.00 bill that I took from my wallet, but I insisted
he accept my donation. I was just thanking God for helping me
find a true doctor and that he was willing to take a 10:00 PM
walkup!" (Then ... Glafira jumped down the big
step and out of the Clinic under her own power.)

Reports My Cancer Cured
pounds K1 point while Reflex Beamer radiates Don's face
Patient (2002) DONALD RUZICKA, Lakewood, CO: "I
came to Afoot Connection to get some help for my lungs which were
heavily congested and breathing wasn't coming easy. I didn't know
quite what to think of the reflexology procedure (DRUMmer and
Reflex Beamer's) until my lungs suddenly opened in the middle
of the ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment and I could breath
with complete ease.
"I was so impressed with the treatment outcome that I purchased
a Reflex Beamer VI-6 for daily self-treatment at home. My intention
was to follow a hunch and use the red/near infrared light to try
and cure the cancer that was on the back of my right hand.
cancer on the top of his right hand was originally the size
of a quarter.
"My physician at the Veteran's Administration Hospital had
diagnosed the mushroom shaped growth as cancer with a biopsy and
he wanted to remove it surgically. I was seeking an alternative
to surgery and hoped this might be my answer. Dr. Zachary didn't
give me much hope with his comment to 'give it a try', but I did
follow his instruction for daily 30 minute applications and it
worked. Eight weeks later it was totally gone ... much to the
chagrin of my surgeon," explained Don.
"Dr. Zachary was surprised when I showed him the cancer
was gone because he hadn't looked at it closely enough to remember
its mushroom shape. But I had another untreated cancer on my left
arm the size of a nickel which helped him get a good picture of
this great accomplishment. My doctor was insisting that I allow
him to surgically remove the cancer on my left arm, but I wanted
to heal it like the one that disappeared from the back of my right
hand. But I finally gave in and made a deal with my Doc when he
agreed to give me my medical records which included the biopsy
reports and photos of the cancer ... if I let him cut.
"By the time he scheduled the cancer surgery on my left
arm ... it had diminished by 75% and what remained tested negative.
It had become non-cancerous. Meanwhile, a third dime-sized cancer
had sprung up on my left hand (which had not been treated with
the Beamer VI-6) which was also removed surgically at that time.
It tested positive. I am happy to say ... there has been no reoccurrence
of any new cancers in the last two years, and I don't believe
there ever will be any." (Don's Phone: 303-935-4039 or
(Zachary postulated the mechanism of action in this cancer
remission after a moment of sincere prayer: "Immediately
after I prayed ... a single word flashed up into my consciousness
from the depths of my belly ... HEAT.
"I immediately shared this intuitive answer to my prayer
with colleagues here at MIR Research Clinic. Six months later
I learned from Dr. Larry Wilson, MD, of Prescott, AZ, that there
was a medical treatment for cancer that used heat. He explained
that the cancer cells will die at a temperature lower than surrounding
healthy human cells.")
Osteopath (1994) Dr. ROBERT S. IVKER,
Littleton, Colorado: "I started going to Zachary Brinkerhoff's
home clinic in 1988 for ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment. We
would trade health services ... my chakra work in exchange for
his reflexology. I have found him to be a highly skilled and thorough
reflexist, as well as being a competent, responsible, and caring
health care practitioner.
"His techniques are diverse from my subtle
energy approach, but the power of the Percus-O-Matic jackhammer
on my K1 points puts me to sleep in his chair every time. A great
stress buster! I plan to continue referring some of my patients
to him at Afoot Connection Reflexology Center for his reflexocure
services in the treatment of a variety of chronic diseases.
"I had Brinkerhoff contribute a section
on reflexology in my original edition of SINUS SURVIVAL and I
also signed his original Doctor of Reflexology Diploma as a member
of the MIR Advisory Board. This was a pioneering effort (on his
part) to enhance the emerging reflexology profession here in the
USA, but the ultimate validation of such an issue will come from
within the profession as it matures."
Initiated My Delivery
Kelly gave birth within 2 hours.
Niece (1987) KAREN KELLY, Greenwood Village,
Colorado: "When I decided to have my first baby on her
due date ... on time ... my mother suggested some reflexology
by my uncle Zach. I was so determined to have my baby on time
that I called uncle for an appointment. My husband Gordon drove
me over to the clinic immediately and the reflexology (reflexocure)
treatment began in earnest with no sign of labor pains.
"Uncle was smiling and talking as he worked
my reflexes on the feet when suddenly I felt like I needed to
go to the bathroom. It didn't take me long to realize that the
feeling to 'go' was really the baby wanting to come out. After
only 10 minutes of reflexology (reflexocure) treatment the baby
was up and ready to make the big move. I guess I was in a state
of excited shock.
"I came back to the treatment room and told
him what was happening. Uncle Zach smiled that big smile and said
Hallelujah. He walked Gordon and I to the door to see
us on our way since his part of the job was done. Soon I began
to have my contractions and within 2 hours of arrival at the hospital
... that same day I had a very smooth delivery and gave birth
to a beautiful daughter ... my first."
ReflexoCure from her brother Zachary.
Sister (1997) Ann Brinkerhoff, Greenwood
Village, CO: "I have been receiving ReflexoCure
(reflexology) treatments from my older brother Zachie since 1969.
I learned long ago not to let him know when a reflex point is
painful because he will go back to that point and keep working
on it. In the last five years he has gone more to machine percussion
and laser light devices which isn't so painful. I don't like pain,
but I sure like the results of his treatments. I take one every
chance I get. Now I use the Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer III-3b
almost everyday which helps me to maintain a higher level of energy
and a wonderful sense of well-being," concluded Ann.
Gear appreciated the Percus-O-Matic's ability to prepare
the patient for chiropractic adjustment.
Naturopath (1992) ROBERT L. GEAR, Jr., DC,
NMD, Phoenix, Arizona: "In 1992 I was exposed to
the 'air-powered' Percus-O-Matic 'jackhammer' when Zachary Brinkerhoff
visited Gear Clinic to observe my World Class Manipulation. Following
a 30 minute Percus-O-Matic ReflexoCure foot treatment, I was strapped
onto my modified McMannus osteopathic table to receive spinal
traction as I have over the last 27 years ... developing the 'Gear
Technique'. What a pleasant surprise! Zachary's therapy allowed
another in a long list of adhesions to come loose and incrementally
increase by sacroiliac joint range of motion. I can credit the
Foot ReflexoCure Therapy with speeding up the process and reducing
the number of treatments that would have been required to accomplish
the same correction without its addition at that time. I was so
impressed that I purchased a Percus-O-Matic machine for use at
Becomes MIR Consultant
Chiropractor (1991) RICHARD H. LONG, DC
(retired), DR, Lakewood, Colorado: "I was so impressed
with the effectiveness and efficiency of the FULL SPECTRUM REFLEXOLOGY
METHOD that I joined forces with Dr. Brinkerhoff in 1991 as a
ReflexoCurist. There are not many techniques or therapies that
will affect me much, but the new Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer's
have proven themselves in clinical applications. The wooden probes
and the Percus-O-Matic also help to effectively clear the soreness
in painful reflex points. I have personally benefited from the
Foot Joint Micro alignment ReflexoCure Pressure Technique that
is part of MIR's training and treatment program. We teach students
and patients only those ReflexoCure (reflexology) techniques that
have been proven effective through MIR Clinical practice."
Bart Nadal, Th.D.
Father (1992) BART NADAL, Denver, Colorado: "My first
visit to MIR Clinic was on January 30, 1992 for reflexology treatment
of prostate stones, hip & shoulder problems, edema, and overweight.
I came on a monthly basis for 3 1/2 years because I was happy
with the results of Full Spectrum Reflexology, but I started coming
twice a month when brother Zachary got a new 100 milliwatts Low
Level Laser Light because of the benefits to my body when used
on the foot reflexes. My edema quickly dissipated and I quit using
my cane. My energy levels at 77 years were great at that time.
I continue in my responsibility as brother superior at St. Andrews
Seminary here in Denver and still fill the role of substitute
priest for numerous Spanish speaking churches throughout the metro
area at the age of 89."

Dr. Berlin's Clinic to evaluate new tool.
Podiatrist (1990) MICHAEL BERLIN, DPM, Denver,
Colorado: "I have personally known and referred my patients
to Dr. Brinkerhoff, a foot ReflexoCurist (reflexologist), for
over 10 years. His advanced foot reflex massage techniques and
therapeutic measures were very beneficial to my patients. Even
in my retirement I continue to recommend his performance of medical
massages in Reflexology and the Hiss Technique of foot joint mobilization.
"Brinkerhoff is a great guy who I hold in the highest regard.
Many times he would call me to his clinic for a complimentary
ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment just to keep me in shape as
an MIR Advisory Board Member. As a practicing podiatrist I would
let him come to my office in order to test his experimental ReflexoCure
(reflexology) percussion tools on my feet. His Percus-O-Matic
jackhammer was profound, but I really like the new DRUMmer. That
is the smoothest machine yet.
"I was the initial inspiration for MIR to adapt foot bone
set (which became Foot Joint Micro alignment ReflexoCure Pressure
Technique) as part of their reflexology practice and teaching.
I remember giving Zachary a video tape of Dr. Shay from California
which demonstrated the Hiss Whip Snap Technique. I felt someone
in the healthcare profession needed to practice this much needed
procedure .. why not Zachary and his reflexology team?"

to Zachary and informed him that I am continuing to maintain my
DPM license in case he might have need of my services in that

(Heel Spur Pain)
Patient (1990) BARBARA DOHERTY, Golden, Colorado:
It was back in 1988 that my teaching career was to start in 1
week; and I couldn't stand on my own two feet. I didn't see how
I could stand before a class of students because of the intense
pain in my heels. But after 2 highly skilled treatments by Zachary
with the Percus-O-Matic 'jackhammer' ... I was totally cured of
my 'heel spur' pain. It was like a miracle. I was able to walk
into my first teaching experience the day after my second ReflexoCure
(reflexology) treatment without an iota of pain in my heels.
Some fringe benefits of these 2 ReflexoCure (reflexology)
treatments were resolution of both my depression and low blood
sugar. I even discontinued my 6 aspirins a day.
(Barbara reported in 2002 that she has been
on her feet teaching for the last 14 years with absolutely no
recurrence of her original heel pain. She was originally
referred for ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatment of "heel
spur" pain by a Podiatrist; and Coors Brewing Company paid
for her two initial ReflexoCure (reflexology) treatments through
her husbands employment benefits.)
Patient (1968) W. J. BANCHERO, Santa Rosa, California: "I
came to Zone Therapist Brinkerhoff at the Fountain of Youth Mineral
Spa for help with a condition of impotence. I was deeply concerned
about this dysfunction, but hopeful that he could help with his
Zone Reflex techniques. That first treatment involved finger pressure
on several sore points and the use of a strong hand held vibrator
to follow up where the fingers found a problem.

When Brinkerhoff finished working on my feet he
had me get up from the green recliner and stand on a big oscillating
foot machine. That thing went crazy as it oscillated my feet which
looked like a big blur when I glanced down at them. When he shut
the switch off after about 5 minutes my bad knee now felt so good
I was able to dance all the way back to the trailer.
When I set eyes on my lovely wife ... I experienced an erection.
Needless to say, we were both very pleased with the results. I
returned for 2 more Zone Reflex treatments during our stay at
the resort just to make sure everything held up for me."

Patient (1968) LOIS DOMENQUEZ, Frazier Park, California: "While
vacationing at the Fountain of Youth Mineral Spring I received
an unexpected blessing. Zone Therapy got my singing voice back
which had been lost for years. I reported many other benefits
to FOY Therapist Brinkerhoff on my second visit: I had relaxed
like a sack, my knee didn't hurt, I lost my craving for food,
my headache and backache were gone, and my eyes were stronger.
I wasn't cured of all my ailments, but I was sure happy to be
Working Grandmother, (1998) MARY HALEY,
Glendale, Arizona: "I was dying of congestive heart failure
at 58 years of age. The prescription heart medication only made
me worse: fluid retention, a hacking cough, puffiness, and shortness
of breath were my lot. I felt like I was going to smother when
I laid down and it was hard to get out of bed. I dreaded facing

type (very painful) reflexology treatments turned me around. Three
months later I am digging post holes and feel 20 years younger.
I know I would be dead by now, except for my daughters dedication
to save me with FULL SPECTRUM REFLEXOLOGY."
Update: Eight years later Mary submitted
to quadruple by-pass surgery. Smoking, bad diet, and work related
stress were factors in reaching this critical point in her life.
Against the advice of her 'friend' she proceeded with the surgery
rather than take the Wholistic approach: strict
diet, stop smoking and give up negative emotional attitudes through
Malignant Breast Cancer
Mary's New Ordeal
Mary survived heart surgery, but not without extreme
suffering that was so intense she felt death would be preferable.
She did quit smoking after surgery and improved her diet, but
the residual effects of her previous life-style manifested as
a malignant breast cancer. Here is her continuing saga:
year old Mary E. Haley of Glendale, AZ was recently diagnosed
with a serious condition of malignant breast cancer by her physician
who recommended surgery. She told the doctor she wanted to pray
about the situation and declined his prescription. "I
couldn't bear another surgery after the suffering I experienced
following a quadruple heart by-pass surgery just last year."
So, she turned to a trusted friend with the overwhelming
prognosis - which was dire. Her friend listened closely and
then he prayed for faith and the ability to follow an explicit
none invasive protocol for killing the cancer - a procedure
for which he clearly laid out.

followed the simple and totally safe Red Near-Infrared Heat
application faithfully - and reported back to her friend within
a week - the good news - that the breast cancer had shrunk in
size from that of a small tangerine down to a large shooter
marble. Her friend encouraged her to report to the
physician and have another biopsy to determine if it was cancer
free. (Biopsy has consistently shown that when the tumor
has been reduced by 50% utilizing the medium of IR Heat - the
tumor at that point will normally be cancer free.)
second report was received at MIR just today: "The
doctor was amazed at the results shown by ultra sound - the
cancer had again been reduced to the size of a regular marble.
'I don't see any need to perform another biopsy,' he had told
me. Further, he wanted to meet my friend who had given me such
excellent and amazing advice which had resolved, in his medical
opinion,a very serious situation."
Since her first report - Mary had continued to administer the
light/heat by the IR Lamp faithfully and said she would continue
to do so until all trace of the remaining tumor is gone. The
initial protocol required that she radiate her breast at close
proximity 2 times daily and to hold the lamp in position until
she emerged from the anticipated sedation state - which is the
marker or indicator of a systemic photon saturation.
The 250 watt red near infrared Halogen bulb in
this lamp evidently generated enough
heat to kill the malignancy.
anticipates that complete dissolution of the remaining tumor
will occur shortly with continued application of IR Energy via
the 250 watt Red Near-Infrared light bulb that is the same wave
length as those you can purchased as an over-the-counter item.
Mary believes you can expect compete resolution - providing
the tumor is on or just beneath the dermis of the skin; has
not metastasized; and the heat is consistently applied (as was
confidently suggested by Mary E. Haley's friend).
am feeling so good - I'm ready to go back to work again - doing
new construction cleanup. Before I started shinning the IR Lamp
on my breast (I was so weak) I could hardly get around the house.
The systemic effect of the light energy is helping to restore
my wounded heart - my whole system. This IR energy - along with
believing prayer - has given me another opportunity to live
and work and enjoy my grandchildren again. Hallelujah. I've
even been able to start cooking again for all the down-and-out
folks through our churches outreach program."
On Mary's last Ultra Sound the marble size tumor had shrunk
even more. She reported it was down to the size of a pea. "I
am feeling so good and so ready to go back to work that I advertised
in the community paper for house cleaning. Right away I got
three homes to clean weekly. With the price of gas over $4.00
a gallon - that is really good because I won't have to drive
to work - I'll walk. And I'll make enough on these three homes
to pay my monthly rental for my mobile home space".
6-24-08: At last report Mary stated in a telephone interview:
"This thing is so small I can't feel it with my finger
when I palpate my breast. There is not a detectable lump anymore,
so I am very interested to see what the Ultra Sound will show
on my next visit. But I am still shinning the infrared lamp
on my breast everyday; and guess what else has happened? That
ugly scar from my scapula down the center of my ribcage that
the surgeon left behind when he performed my quadruple heart
by-pass - that frightful scar is almost gone. While shinning
the light on my breast it was also hitting my scar. All I can
see is a very fine line of scar tissue. This thing might totally
disappear. I feel like the scar tissue in my heart must have
likewise regressed. That is probably why I am feeling so much
better than I have since my heart surgery."
Please note that heat is considered a medically accepted procedure
for assisting to destroy/kill the cancer cell/tumor. Larry Wilson,
MD (of Prescott, AZ) reported that a procedure can be found in
the US Medical Literature with specific instructions - which was
applied in Mary's case.

Podiatrist (1994) R. H. Richardson, Grand Junction,
Colorado: "I personally have had the opportunity to view
the facilities at Brinkerhoff's office and to observe and receive
treatment. During the course of time spent with him, I have found
him quite knowledgeable in the areas of anatomy, physiology and
nutrition. In addition to this, I find his skills of treatment
and expertise of rationale and delivery of services unsurpassed.
His delivery of reflex massage, both manually and with instrumentation,
was demonstrated and provided to myself.
"I am a diabetic and have undergone noticeable diabetic paresthecia
and, on the first treatment with Percus-O-Matic instrumentation,
almost immediately have felt sensations that have been absent
for a number of years. What impressed me is that, without instrumentation,
it would be humanly impossible to deliver the intensity and duration
of mechanical stimulation that is so essential to the treatment
of this almost impossible condition.

for over 45 minutes with the Jackhammer.
"I would be pleased to receive an invitation
to be on his Advisory Board, relative to the MODERN INSTITUTE
OF REFLEXOLOGY. With my past experience and practice, which has
been over 30 years, I feel that I would gain knowledge and understanding
from this individual. My observation is that individuals like
Brinkerhoff are needed; they are an essential part of an acute
delivery system for cost containment and alternate treatment."
is Back on the Job
Patient (1991) ISADORE WEINELAUER, Lakewood, Colorado:
"When I came to Afoot Connection on December 26, 1991, I
could only work 1 day a week as a waiter because my bones and
joints were weak and sore. I was infuriated with Brinkerhoff after
my first treatment because the bottom of my feet puffed up after
he 'hammered' them with the Percus-O-Matic "Jackhammer".
Jackhammers his own feet every day in
to maintain himself. "I received over 350
sessions at Afoot Connection by Dr. Zachary."
But I was back a week later begging for another session. I have
received an average of two hours of treatment every week since
my first visit. I finally quit smoking 'cold turkey' and have
been working a 5 day week since July of '94. Between treatments
I use an electric foot roller twice a day at home, lift weights
3 times a week, do some fishing, and play a little pool. I can
truthfully say that Full Spectrum Reflexology helped get my life
back on track."
Physician (1994) LOUISE COLLIE, MD, Indian Hills, Colorado:
"I have known Zachary K. Brinkerhoff, III, DR, since 1989.
He consistently exudes great confidence and joy in his practice.
I have found reflexology treatments especially beneficial for
foot and arch pain, plantar fascitis, Achilles tendonitis, and
for general stress reduction.
"I feel many surgical procedures used to relieve foot pain
can be avoided through an earlier use of foot reflex massage and
foot joint mobilization. As the patients foot is made more functional
through these techniques the cost can be decreased long term.

"I have enjoyed and benefited from his dynamic reflexology
treatments which I consider complementary to standard medicine.
I am presently on staff at St. Anthony Central and refer patients
to his location regularly for reflexology."
for My Reflexology Treatments
Patient (1991) PATRICIA GERNER, Lakewood, Colorado:
"Internal medicine, physical therapy and chiropractic had
failed to bring relief to an auto injury, a spondylitis on the
right side of my neck at cervical 6/7. I had been suffering with
this condition for 11/2 years when I finally
went to Afoot Connection Reflexology Center for help. Prudential
paid $1,200 to Afoot Connection for a series of 20 Full Spectrum
Reflexology treatments which cured my neck problem and chronic
headaches (my neck automatically adjusted itself with a loud
crack during my 5th treatment when Zachary was working on the
cervical reflexes of my right big toe). I was able to report
to Zachary (a year after my last treatment) that I had
had no recurrence of any pain in my neck."
Patient (2006) Mary Gallagher, Aurora, CO:
My first day back on the job as a flight attendant with Frontier
Airlines was an exhilarating experience that I somehow thought
would never come. I had undergone a lumpectomy of my left breast
along with a few lymph nodes, but after eight sessions of chemotherapy
my life was devastated. However, there I stood (as my balding
head blushed) greeting my first plane load of customers (I wore
no wig or hat). After nine months of recovery it seemed my old
job had taken on a new dimension as I more genuinely connected
with each passenger that came on board.
Attendant Mary Gallagher gives a thumbs
up for the Jackhammer, Beamer and Prayer.
My recovery started when my massage therapist sent
me to see Zachary Brinkerhoff because he thought Reflexology might
be able to assist in my recovery from the after effects of chemotherapy.
When I met Zachary I told him that my body felt as though a Tsunami
had washed through it leaving a scene of total devastation. I'll
never forget that confident smile he gave me when he said, "This
is the type of situation made for ReflexoCure. Fill out this form
and then read the Full Disclosure Statement. We can get started
I was desperate to find healing because I was scheduled
that Friday to return to work. My nine months of sick leave (seven
months generously donated by my flight crew) were about to expire,
so I was willing to follow Jerry Gardner's recommendation to try
Reflexology. I trusted his judgment, but my hope was hanging by
a very thin thread.
As Zachary was reclining me back in the ReflexoCure
treatment chair, I had a prayer of hope and gratitude in my heart.
Then I felt the warmth of the radiant energy Reflex Beamer Lamp
shining down upon my face and I somehow felt I was in the right
place at the right time. It was so comforting and reassuring.
from sedation (note three Reflex
Beamer's) after her 5th ReflexoCure treatment.
That first treatment was like a miracle. When I
came out of my light-induced sedation state my life was pulsing
with vitality again. I felt calm and yet energized. There was
no more Tsunami. Then I remembered how Zachary had applied the
DRUMmer to my feet: at first lightly and then with increasing
intensity. He explained how the percussion machine worked like
the old Chinese Mallets or Hammers applied manually to impact
the sole of both feet back in ancient times. "The main
reflex point of focus will be the K1 meridian (solar plexus) which
is also known as the Chinese Sleep Point," he had said.
It seemed like I was in that heavenly state for
about 4 hours, yet it cost me only $25.00. That night I had a
dream that revealed how the MIR Clinic was like a life raft to
which I could return time and again after having dived into the
waters of the work-a-day-world. Full Spectrum Reflexology has
certainly proved to be my "life raft" as I have gained
strength week by week while making my Frontier trips flight by
Reflex Beamer I-1b helps me to re energize
on the nights before my return flight to Denver."
After my first flight Zachary loaned me a 125 watt
Photoluminescent Reflex Beamer I-1b to take with me on my flights.
"After you get to your hotel and shower, then shine the
light on your feet or face. This will impart energy at the end
of a hard day. You can even sleep with it shinning on your feet
if you want a full charge like you get here at MIR Clinic when
we beam three 350 watt lamps at one time during ReflexoCure,"
he explained to me.
After using the Reflex Beamer on that next trip,
I bought it for $50.00 because it worked so well. I couldn't have
made it on my first double-leg trip last week without the benefits
of the Beamer. Now I return from my flights feeling less fatigued.
I have definitely entered a new realm of my life and it is filled
with joy and gratitude to my Maker whatever the future may hold.
Zachary's prayers of faith given at my request have been very
meaningful to me and an important factor in my significant improvements
both spiritual and physical. Hallelujah!

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells
do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied
to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there
are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just
means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because
they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's
3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells
will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental,
food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing
diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer
cells but also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone
marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage
- like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars
and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8.Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation
do not result in more tumor destruction.
9 When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and
radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed,
hence the person can succumb to various other kinds of infections
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate
and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery (including
biopsy) can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer
cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
CANCER CELLS FEED
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting
off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer
cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc
are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural
substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very
small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white
in color. Better alternative is Bragg's amino's or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce
mucus, especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Cancer feeds
on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened
soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid
environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat
fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also
contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones
and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables
and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit help
put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be
from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide
live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular
levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy
cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try
and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean
sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes
are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate,
which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative
and has cancer-fighting properties. Water: it is best to drink
purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy
metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines
become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein
walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy
the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFA's etc.) to enable
the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements
like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell
death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted,
or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the body, mind, and spirit. A proactive
and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful
and acidic environment. So - learn to have a loving and
forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.
Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down
to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed
to destroy cancer cells (especially hyper baric oxygen).

This information is being circulated at
Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't
freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases
dioxins from the plastic.
Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle
Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard
presented by dioxins. He talked about these chemicals and how
bad they are for us.
He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave
using plastic containers..
This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that
the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin
into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead,
he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic
containers for heating food. You get the same results, only
without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen
and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated
in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's
just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.
He reminded us that a while ago some of the
fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to
paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such
as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be
cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat
causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic
wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
No plastic containers in microwave.
No water bottles in freezer.
