What is Foot Zoning?
Foot Zoning is an exciting modality that recognizes the ability the body has to heal itself! In a foot zone we simply trigger signals in the feet to help the body remember its innate “gift to heal”. This is done by working with energy pathways in the feet which allow the body to recognize and connect to the Perfect Blueprint that is inherent in each individual!
Foot Zone Practitioners use specific techniques to trigger signals in the feet that correspond to all the different parts of the body. We follow a detailed map in each session to reach every signal in the body and do this in a specific order to get the most benefit from every foot zone. This is an amazing holistic approach to health that recognizes that the body’s parts, organs, and systems work together and function as a whole. When all of our systems are communicating efficiently with one another we have the best chance of enjoying good health!
The benefits of receiving foot zones are AMAZING! Regular tune-ups not only aid in physical health, but also have been found to release emotional disturbances, and bring clarity to mind and spirit. We are much more than just a physical being. In foot zoning we can access and gain information relating to the physical, emotional, mental, and energetic bodies.
Who would have thought that so much information could be found in our feet! Foot Zone Practitioners are able to feel imbalances and correct energy disturbances using this magnificent gift that God has instilled in each of us.

History of Foot Zoning
The signal system of the feet has always been with man. Evidence that dates back thousands of years has been found in China, India, Egypt and other civilization showing the practice of using the feet for healing purposes.
In the twentieth century, Foot Zoning received credibility and popularity after 3 doctors published information relating to Foot Zoning and its principles. Dr. William Fitzgerald, an ENT, discovered ten areas of the body and the various ways they were related to the hands and feet. He found that by applying the right amount of pressure in precise locations he was able to relieve areas of pain throughout the body. In 1916, Dr. Browers published Dr. Fitzgerald’s findings and officially referred to the areas of the body as “zones”. Dr. Charles Ersdal was cured from paralysis by reflexology (a form of zoning), but noticed varying results in others. He spent over 26 years researching Foot Zoning and its principles, methods, and results. Dr. Ersdal is credited with extensively charting the foot zones and their corresponding trigger points. He is also credited with creating the basic standardized methods used today. Certified Foot Zone Practitioners are available all over the world and Foot Zoning has developed into a highly respected alternative therapy.
How to Prepare for a Foot Zone
Do your research to find a good foot zone practitioner. Ask for recommendations from others who have had a good experience with theirs. A good foot zone practitioner has worked hard to learn and understand the zone to be able to help you receive the most benefit from your foot zone session. It is important that these treatments be administered by a certified foot zone practitioner to experience the full physical, mental, and emotional benefits.
A foot zone session usually takes place while sitting in a comfortable chair and typically takes anywhere from about forty-five minutes to an hour and a half depending on your current state of health. Multiple and consistent sessions are recommended in the beginning to reestablish the body’s restorative process. After this, you will be able to work with your practitioner to determine a schedule based on your individual needs and overall health.
It is important to make sure you are well hydrated before you get your feet zoned because your energy systems works through a communication system highly reliant on water. Also, make sure that you have eaten something healthy because your body will need energy to heal.
And of course, come with clean feet!
