MIR has moved from Lakewood to the new 3,600' facility at 4086 Youngfield, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033. "Here we have well kept lawn, trees and flowers," said the Director Zachary Brinkerhoff. "Not only
do we have a clear view of the Rocky Mountains, but we have a wilderness park with three small lakes and
good perch fishing in our backyard."

Graduate Speaks Up
Dawn Horn stopped by the Institute for an update
and treatment at the hand of Zachary Brinkerhoff. Below is
her letter of thanks to the MIR Staff for assisting in
discovery of her purpose in this life.
May 23, 2008
First, I am writing to thank you and your staff
for all the support over the years, and the ability to answer
any questions I have had. Second, I want to give you an update
on where reflexology has taken me in a relatively short period
of time. I am so grateful for all the exciting experiences and
the wonderful people I have met by launching into this wide-open
field of Reflexology. Thank you for sharing yourself in this
I started my quest to find a source for learning
reflexology as a result of an illness which could not be resolved
medically. I was unable to get any answers about how to heal
myself. I became so impatient with the medical options in my
area of Nebraska that I was beginning to think I might be in
need of some mental health assistance. At that time I was in
session with a therapist when she asked me what I planned to
do with my life after my situation was resolved? I remember
saying that I couldn't think beyond the pain in my feet, and
that I would give big money to a reflexologist.

At that time there were few complementary and alternative therapies
offered in my area. I remember the therapist saying, "Why
don't you learn reflexology? You could then benefit from it
and also offer it in this region of our State?" So
learning reflexology through MIR's Home Study Package became
my mission. And yes, I builded a successful practice in North
Platte which was an outgrowth of earning my 100 hours of practicum
required for graduation. This was a time of self-healing as
well as treating and guiding others to discover a more natural
way to better health.

After my husband's retirement from the railroad
our family agreed unanimously to make a move to live in Vail
valley, Colorado. What a blessed family adventure it has been.
I just finished working through my third ski season, which has
brought a wealth of friendships and wonderful travel experiences.
My clients have sent me to help their relatives in Costa Rica,
Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Ohio, and Florida. Again, relatives
have been brought to Vail for treatment by my hand. These sick
and suffering have come from Ohio, New York, and Baltimore.
It has been so rewarding to meet and help people from these
many different places and walks of life. Zachary, let me repeat
how truly grateful I am for your support and guidance.
What an inspirational career choice! Last September
I attended a workshop in Washington State taught by Inge Dougans
with the assistance of a staff member at the International School
of Reflexology & Meridian Therapy. I plan to continue to
learn all I can - next will be Korean Hand Reflex Therapy -
and to keep on inspiring others to experience and to fully utilize
reflexology to help gain and maintain excellence in health.
God Bless you and your work!
