What is Foot Zone Therapy?

What happens during a foot zone session?  During a typical session, the Foot Zone Practitioner will use their hands, fingers, thumbs, and knuckles to stimulate the signals on the foot.  Occasionally there will be discomfort which is an indication of disharmony in a signal.  A session will typically take about 90 minutes but may take longer depending on the other energy services that the Practitioner provides.

What are the benefits of foot zoning?  The purpose of the foot zone technique is to help bring the body into balance.  The body is designed to heal itself and will do so in the order that will provide lasting benefits.  It can sometimes take 6-10 foot zone sessions for the body to reach a state of homeostasis.  Then regular maintenance sessions are typically enough to keep the body in balance.
Following the first zone session, clients typically report that they either have a lot of energy or they feel very tired (the body heals as you sleep).  Because it can take up to 4 days for the full benefits of a foot zone session to be manifest, some report that they feel no difference (other than a feeling relaxation) for days after a session, but on the third day they face-plant on the bed and sleep for 12 hours.
Every session will be different and every person will experience different benefits and effects.  These are a few of the reported benefits and reactions.

Some have asked if foot zoning is reflexology.  While both modalities work to restore balance and do so mainly on the feet, they are very different modalities.  Reflexology works with reflex points and Foot Zoning works with energy signals.  Foot Zoning works by stimulating energy signals in a specific pattern and specific order.  Whereas Reflexology treatments will vary depending on the problems that the client presents, a foot zone session follows the same pattern regardless the problem.
This is because the body is designed to heal itself and by bringing the entire body into balance (not just specific reflex points), the body is then free to begin the healing process.   As a result, Foot Zoning is a more in-depth and complete method of correction.
Some have asked if foot zoning is massage.  Foot zoning is not massage and does not manipulate the tissues of the body.  Rather the practitioner will use her fingers, thumbs, and knuckles to stimulate energy signals on the foot to open the energy pathways of the body.
Opening the energy pathways begins the process that allows the body to make the necessary corrections to bring it into harmony.  Some will notice results immediately or within the first few days following a session, others notice a feeling of harmony that results in improvement over a period of time.
Foot zoning is a great way to bring your body into balance and bring harmony to your emotional, mental, physical, and etheric/spiritual bodies.  Whether you notice results immediately, within a few days, or over a period of time, everyone agrees, foot zoning just feels good!

Foot Zoning

Foot Zone Balancing is a method believed to correct and renew the entire body at a cellular level by working specific “signals” on your feet.  These signals are connected to every system in the body- the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, skeletal, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, reproductive, and muscular systems, as well as the emotional and spiritual bodies.  So by accessing and stimulating these signals, one can access their connected systems, thereby bringing balance to the body.

Improvements often seen from a Zone:

  • Release of tension
  • Increased energy levels, improved alertness
  • Improvements in digestive function and health
  • Improved uptake of nutrients and removal of cellular waste
  • Improvement in hormone production and balance
  • Better lymphatic circulation and drainage
  • A stronger and more appropriately responsive immune system
  • Healthier cells, tissues, organs, nerves
  • Faster and better recovery from illness and injury
  • Improvement in inflammation and pain throughout the body
  • Better mobility of joints and muscles
  • Improved sleep habits, less dreaming
  • Removal of toxins from cells and organs of the body
  • Improved emotional and nervous system stability
  • Improvements in mental and spiritual perspective
  • Improved resilience and ability to cope with stress
  • Improvement in the functioning of the body's electrical and energy based systems
  • A myriad of clues about the condition of the body at the present time, and to some extent, a record of past trauma and the healing that has, or has not taken place

Possible reactions after a foot zone could include:

  • Increase in urination
  • Headaches (caused by detoxifying of the body)
  • Colon becomes more active
  • Change in sleep patterns
  • Decrease in pain
  • Deep state of relaxation
  • Tiredness
  • Increased energy
  • Detoxification of the body
  • Thirsty or dry mouth
