What Students Say After Training With Dr. Manzanares:
Diana Palma from Indiana
Yes there is a scientific basis to reflexology! I always knew there was more to reflexology than zone theory. Dr. Manzanares has brought reflexology in to the 21st century with the development of the first intricate medical-based reflexology maps and researched protocols. Most important is his discovery of how it works through the central nervous system. Dr. Manzanares has dedicated his whole life to the field of reflexology and is truly the Modern Day Father of Reflexology. His classes have changed my life and my career. I am so grateful for the contributions he has made to this field. Thank you Dr. Manzanares!

Lise Grondin-Danault from New Hampshire
“I can help you with that!” is a phrase I now use when people call to schedule their first session with me. Why? Because since May 2011, I have been diligently attending Dr. Manzanares’ seminars, and studying and implementing his science-based Method of Reflexology. Achieving Proficiency Certification from the doctor himself shows me how dedicated he is to advancing the practice of reflexology. His cutting edge protocols have given me the tools I needed to get to the next level in my practice, which is exceptionally beneficial to my clients and their well-being. Thank you Dr. Manzanares, I look forward to continuing my studies with you!

Bernadette Marnell-Palumbo from New York
Dearest Linda,thank you for orchestrating such a terrific weekend. Dr. Jesus Manzanarez is a healer and an incredible educator. What an intense training by such an experienced well mannered Doctor. So inspiring. It is time for us (our country) to be integrated in medicine way more than we are. Europe is so much more open to combining different ways to help and heal people. Studying under him has given me much hope. Much gratitude from the bottom of my heart reflex.
Iris Aharonovich from Massachusetts
I want to thank you for the amazing opportunity to take part in Dr. Manzanares' training. It was so knowledgeable, giving so much power to the reflexology treatment. As a reflexologist since 2000 and having taught reflexology in Israel for 3 years with doctors this seminar was like going back home. I was so pleased to see how many are taking advantage of learning reflexology based on science. I am looking forward to more classes.
My reflexology practice has changed for the better since taking Dr. Manzanares' training. Please come to teach in Canada.
Julie Bushman from Iowa
The knowledge and insight from Dr. Manzanares class was priceless! I am thankful to experience the beginning of a huge paradigm shift between allopathic and intuitive medicine. It is great to know that science can back up what reflexologists have known for years! Thanks to Dr. Manzanares's research, I feel validated as a reflexologist! Having applied what I learned in Dr. Manzanares' class on my clients, the feedback I have received is further validation. I look forward to continuing my journey with deeper study using his methods.
Renee Settels from Illinois
I have had 4 classes with Dr. Manzanares over the last two years and I can't believe how my Reflexology skills have improved. My clients have noticed the difference as well and they say that I am only getting better and better. Dr. Manzanares has done some amazing research and can explain exactly how Reflexology works. Thanks to his classes I can better locate specific reflex points on the feet, and by following his protocols better help my clients. And that's what it is all about. A big thank you to Dr. Manzanares!
(Renee Settels completed 96-hours (six classes) of classroom training with Dr. Manzanares in Chicago, Illinois on May 12, 2013. With completion of her 6th class, satisfactory written and practical exam, she was awarded a Certificate of Proficiency in the Manzanares Method of Reflexology.)
Debbie Hitt from Ohio
I loved Dr. Manzanares class and truly appreciate how he adapted his pace for us yet encouraged us to push on! I love the science and research behind his work. I am so grateful that he is willing to share his knowledge and provide us with the opportunity to be a more credible and effective Reflexologist! I heard great feedback from others in the class as well.
Jan Mitchell from Iowa
I just worked on my first client after taking Dr. Manzanares' class. She has experienced pain behind her ribs for several months and a history of leukemia and heart attack. After using the reflexology techniques I learned in class, her pain was completely gone. Thank you for the joy this has given to both my client and me.
Tony Bohr from Iowa
Thank you Dr. Manzanares for coming to Iowa and for sharing yourself so willingly. What a big rock into my pond of knowledge.
Nancy Potter from Illinois
What an inspiring weekend at Dr. Manzanares' class. My background is nursing and I have used reflexology for serveral years. However my thumbs have never been a strong point. I was elated to hear that the Manzanares Method is more thumb-friendly. The doctor's work is remarkable. Two days are clearly only a beginning and I plan to continue the study with Dr. Manzanares.
Mary VonRanker from Washington:
I received a text message today, “…having problem w/ hemorrhoid and am in pain… think reflexology would help?” I turned to Dr. Manzanares' book and followed the reflexology protocol. My client could walk out; pain was reduced and we scheduled 2 more sessions according to the protocol! I am stoked! Many of my clients have reported results with my using the exact techniques that you taught us in class.
I have completed my second full weekend of training where you showed in-depth photographs of the procedures you used to document the reflexology map. I am so grateful to deepen my reflexology work with such precision, and I am committed to continuing your course of training and complete the Manzanares Method proficiency certification. Thank you Dr. Manzanares for your commitment and dedication to this incredible modality!
Linda Neff from Ohio:
I truly believe in this method. I have seen such a drastic improvement in my patients using the techniques and knowledge of Dr. Manzanares. A client had a severe trauma to her body, causing difficulty walking steadily. After Dr. Manzanares’s seminar, I used his method on her for the first time and after the treatment she got up out of the chair and walked with much greater speed and was more steady. One month later, she continues to walk with a steady balance and has more vitality.
Mary Ehle from Wisconsin:
My clients already feel and appreciate the difference. I almost feel reborn into Reflexology and once again am thrilled to be able to give reflexology.
(Mary Ehle completed 96-hours of classroom training with Dr. Manzanares in Chicago, Illinois on May 12, 2013. With completion of her 6th class, satisfactory written and practical exam, she was awarded a Certificate of Proficiency in the Manzanares Method of Reflexology.)
Sarah Preusker from Illinois:
This work is extremely important for reflexologists. I have been practicing Dr. Manzanares’ method since June, 2010 and my understanding has become more refined with each class. I have always had so many unanswered questions regarding reflexology - the Dr. covers them! Looking forward to the next workshop.

Ann Hauer from Michigan:
I can honestly say that Dr. Manzanares’ method of Reflexology has completely influenced my life for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have managed with this style of Reflexology (and the use of pure essential oils) to keep my R.A. in submission / remission for almost two years now… completely pain-free. I love his work as I do feel it is more defined compared to anything I have ever tried.
Bill Flocco from the American Academy of Reflexology in California:
For the first time since Drs. FitzGerald and Riley came up with the reflexology map of the human body concept on the feet, we have new insights from Dr. Manzanares. Discovering that the tissue variations found in tender reflexes is organic in nature, meaning an increased supply of nerve endings, is just one of many scientifically based insights to be gained during classes with Dr. Manzanares.
Catherine Vestraci from Maryland:
As an experienced RN, taking Dr. Manzanares' workshop was an experience I embraced. It not only was a great adjunct to what I've already practiced and taught for years but provided validation feedback from clients. I can hardly wait for the next class. What a progressive, wonderful opportunity for those of us in the US.
Stephenie Cooke from Arkansas:
A unique and fresh perspective to Reflexology principles and practice - the scientific and physiological aspects of what we do, how we do it, and how it is actually affecting the body. We need what Dr. Manzanares has to share with us!
Julie Thompson from California:
It was interesting and informative to take the Reflexology course with Dr Manzanares and to participate in the hands-on. His medical research makes for positive impact on Reflexology.
Linda Bussard from Washington:
I have been using the mapping information that I received in Dr. Manzanares’ class and have consistently found that it makes a difference in finding the deposits in the feet.
Cindy Bernstein from California:
It was fascinating to learn about Dr. Manzanares studies and how he has integrated reflexology into his family practice for over 27 years. I learned so much in the hands-on of locating deposits in the feet and hearing the feedback that he gave each person. His teaching style, integrating lecture with hands on experience, I found to be very effective. I have a bolstered sense of confidence in speaking about reflexology to clients and prospects, with the knowledge of Dr. M’s medical and scientific studies.
Jacqueline Lyczewski from Washington:
During my weekend I learned so much that I wish to attend another of Dr. Manzanares’ seminars. His techniques will be a valuable asset to anyone’s practice. It was a wonderful learning experience.
