What is foot zone therapy?
Foot zone therapy is precise, directed pressure to the various “zones” of the feet. The zone therapy practitioner observes the foot and interprets the “messages” it conveys through discoloration, texture and tenderness. When a signal point is triggered within a certain zone, a message goes to the tissue or organ effected through a reflex arc to the spinal cord and then to the brain. Discomfort is experienced in the areas of imbalance where healing is needed.
Zone therapy stimulates every organ and renews the cell system in each treatment. It is a holistic approach that recognizes that all of the body’s cells and organs make up a complex and interactive organism. Some of you may have heard of reflexology, which is a more mainstream name. Modern reflexology and foot zoning were both pioneered by Fitzgerald, but reflexology can tend to focus on one body system that might be having problems, whereas foot zoning treats each session by a complete systematic routine that incorporates the whole body.
It is extremely important that your zone therapy be administered by a certified zone therapist. Much more occurs during a session than meets the eye, and practitioner experience is essential to achieving the full physical, mental and emotional benefit. A session typically lasts 45-60 minutes, and multiple and consistent sessions over a two-month period are recommended to detoxify and establish the bodies restorative process. After this period, you and your therapist will determine a schedule that is based on your individual needs and overall health. You will find that your body will tell you when it is time for another zone therapy session.
