History of Foot Zone Therapy
Foot zone therapy, in some form, has been practiced as a healing method for thousands of years. It has come and gone with the rise and fall of civilizations. Hieroglyphics and ancient paintings depicting this therapy have been found in Egypt and India.
The modern history of zone therapy begins with Dr. William Fitzgerald, an American nose and throat specialist. His accomplishments include developing a theory describing the electrical circuits, or “meridians,” in the body. In the 1950s, Dr. Charles Ersdale of Norway was cured from paralysis using zone therapy.
This experience inspired 26 years of intense research into the human body’s own innate healing intelligence that can be triggered by specific points. Ersdale learned the feet’s natural signal system to establish balance, elevate life-energy and renew cells in the body. He was able to chart the human anatomy as it relates to “points“ on the foot. One of his most significant discoveries was that the body would consistently respond as a dynamically interrelated whole, rather than as separate symptomatic parts.
Zone therapy has been found to be a signal or electro-magnetic system, rather than a reflex system, and the body is always treated in its entirety as a whole.
