This twelve lesson program has been designed
like a many layered cake which has been sliced into twelve pieces.
Dr. Brinkerhoff identifies each lesson as a slice which gives
the student a taste of the whole; whereby learning is facilitated
by exposing the mind to these small bits of each subject listed
below. Thus, starting with Lesson #1 the learner will have enough
reflexology information to initiate a treatment and thereby able
to gain a fair level of confidence based on the positive feedback
from the recipient ('Oh, that feels so good' or 'I am so relaxed'
or 'Wow, my headache is gone').
Harvey Lampell, DPM visits Dr. Brinkerhoff's booth in
Australia. Dr. Lampell gave every participant a Foot Joint Alignment
treatment during his presentation. This technique is taught through
MIR's Home Study Package on DVD.

was granted a full scholarship to attend the Academy of Physical
Education in Pottsdam outside Berlin, Germany. At this school
I learned two systems which were new to me and which have ever
since stood me in good stead.
there was a German way of administering massage called 'Deep Fascia'.
This method utilizes a manipulation by kneading of the muscles
beneath the skin. Today in the USA we refer to it as 'rolfing'.
To perform it properly requires a thorough knowledge of both bone
and muscle structure. The masseur must have hands practiced to
make every move meaningful.
second technique was 'Zone Therapy'. In America this is now referred
to as 'Reflexology'. All organs of the body have nerve extensions
which terminate in the soles of the feet. If pressure is applied
to the correct points on the bottom of the foot it can have an
immediate effect upon the desired organs and upon those muscles
which surround them.
great Irish Professor of Medicine, Dr. William F. FitzGerald,
a leader in the fields of neurology and physiology, (introduced
his newly discovered techiques) of Zone Therapy to the medical
profession (before taking it to the chiropractors). Today, however,
relatively few American doctors or therapists are familiar with
this way of affecting relief from pain and, in some instances,
actually bring about cures.
Mildred Carter, who studied the works of Drs. Fitzgerald and Joseph
Riley, has published here in America a book explaining this method
and how it can be used. At first blush the idea of affecting the
heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, and other organs of the body by
pressures applied to the soles of the feet may seem meretricious.

in the hands of a knowledgeable therapist is a valuable tool.
In actuality its effectiveness is similar to that achieved by
acupuncture. I don't for a moment want to give the impression
I believe all types of human ills can be treated by pressures
applied to the soles of the feet. I do say without hesitation
that in certain types of physical disorder; Reflexology is the
quickest and most effective modus operandi available.
I have come across aches and pains which could be relived in no
other and which suddenly evaporated under this method of treatment.
Specifically, I have been successful in treating chronic headaches
and sinus with this technique. I have never, in all my years of
practice as a physical therapist, come across a headache I could
not help within five minutes of commencing reflexiological treatment."
