or may have been practicing for many years, but has reached a
decision to become a credentialed reflex practitioner and enter
the professional realm by choosing to qualify for the FREELANCER
500 Hour Professional ReflexoCure Certificate. This diploma qualifies
a person to receive placement on MIR’s web site and entitles
them to apply for professional Malpractice/Liability Insurance

Make Your DREAM
Let the JOURNEY
Dear Dr. Zac,
It is my pleasure to know you. I feel excited knowing that I am
not alone doing this wonderful natural healing service which is
our avenue for bringing comfort to the needy who have an illness.
I have returned to the USA after training nearly 200 foot doctor
missionaries in the Philippines where I grew up.
I was born into a village without a modern doctor.
To this day my village only has a foot doctor who does natural
healing. I used to pick some herbs and run errands for him which
allowed me to observe him doing the healing. I became the product
of that foot doctor: that is why I am a true believer of natural
healing (such as herbs and massage). But my focus was always on
SPIRITUAL HEALING more than anything else.
By the year 1960 I began seriously learning through another foot
doctor in our neighboring village by doing in-service training.
It is inspiring to think that foot-work is what I have continued
to do from my graduation until this very day. I always sought
improvement in my foot doctor ministry by going to schools of
reflexology and reading books.
Now I am preparing my application packet in order
to present my qualification for the Doctor of Reflexology certificate
issued by the Modern Institute of Reflexology.
I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.
October 21, 2005
you do what youve always done,
youll get what youve always got."
