What is foot zoning?
By Amy Young
Have you ever heard of foot zoning? I am often asked what foot zoning is and how it works.
Essentially, your body is mapped out on your feet and can be read during zone therapy. Zone therapy is a series of specific, directed pressure to the different zones of the feet. During the session, the zone therapist observes the foot and interprets the messages or signals it conveys through touch.
A foot zone isn't a massage. (Although foot massages are wonderful, aren't they?) In fact, discomfort is experienced during foot zoning in the areas of imbalance or areas where healing is needed.
Foot zones are a holistic approach that aids the body in the healing process.
People of all ages and toxicity levels benefit from being zoned--from a newborn baby to an aging elderly person.
After a session is complete, the zone therapist will apply essential oils to aid in the experience and healing process. Then they will make suggestions from essential oils, supplements and diet, to exercise, depending on what the signals felt like. All of these suggestions are meant to assist the body to becoming more healthy.
However, this is not a quick fix. It usually takes a few zones for the client to feel the full effect though some feel relief after the first session. Every body is different!
