Becoming A Certified Reflexologist

Reflexology is something I’ve used and loved since I was 8 years old. I began learning about Reflexology when my aunt bought me a book by Mildred Carter – whom I consider to be the mother of American Reflexology.

Eunice Ingham is the woman who took zone therapy even further – mapping reflex points in the feet and building the first Reflexology educational institution. She is, without a doubt, the mother of Reflexology.

However, Mildred Carter brought this healing method to the people here in the United States. Her straight-forward, no-nonsense, easy to understand books (Body Reflexology, Hand Reflexology and Foot Reflexology) gave everyone, from doctors to mechanics and housewives, a viable, effective way to enhance the health of themselves and their families.

Carter, now 93 years of age, is still going strong and practicing what she has preached for decades – Reflexology works.

I received my first certification in Reflexology from a very solid school in the UK. Then, through coincidence (or synchronicity!), I came in contact with Dr. Zachary Brinkerhoff of the Modern Institute of Reflexology in Denver, CO.

He practices what he terms “Full Spectrum Reflexology” – using hands, near-infrared light and tools such as the ‘Drummer’. I am almost at the end of my training with him, and, have to say that the addition of light and percussion instruments makes a HUGE difference in the effectiveness of Reflexology treatments.

Mildred Carter, my childhood Reflexology heroine, is on the Advisory Board for the Modern Institute of Reflexology – that, to me, shows much as to the institute’s credibility, effectiveness and ethics.

So, if you are considering the study of Reflexology, take the time to check out the home-study course at the Modern Institute of Reflexology. It has my recommendation, and more importantly, the support and knowledge of the ‘American Mother of Reflexology’ – Mildred Carter.
