What is foot zoning?
Within each person's feet lie detailed and complex signal systems. This signal system is thought to be connected to every part of the human anatomy: the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, skeletal, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, reproductive, and muscular systems; as well as the emotional and spiritual bodies. These signals are believed to run throughout our bodies, especially to the extremities: the ears, hands and our feet. With this mapping, a trained & certified Foot Zone practitioner is able to access the body.
The knowledge of the reflexes on the feet and other extremitites has been around for thousands of years. Hieroglyphics and ancient paintings depicting this therapy have been found in Egypt and India. Energy work through the feet also has roots in many other civilizations: Arabic, Grecian, Russian, European and even American Indian cultures have developed their own modality of healing through the feet.
In more modern terminology the body is accessed through the feet similar to the way a computer is accessed with a keyboard; allowing old programs to be deleted and gives our subconscious and physical brain the stimulus to correct and renew the body at the cellular level.
From the beginning, each cell in our body has had the knowledge and capability of renewing itself. Our DNA pattern holds a perfect blueprint of our body and is able to heal and rebuild the perfect cell. We daily become subjected to a host of toxins; from the air we breathe, to the food we eat, and the water we drink- even our negative thougths and emotions can be toxic. Compounded with these toxins we regularly experience health robbing stress and it unquestionably takes a toll on us.
Zone therapy encourages the body's natural healing capability by stimulating blood circulation, hormone balance, lymph flow, digestion, assimilation, and elimination. Zoning helps this physical healing occur because it puts the body in a parasympathetic state. Zoning balance does take time. It works with the body's own innate intelligence, and only allows the body to do what it can when it can.
I have personally enjoyed learning about how energy work can be applied during zoning sessions. For instance, I work with chakra signals during the footzone and help those energy centers open and flow. I also can find emotional vibrations that are trapped in the physical tissues and help them release. I also absolutely love applying simple emotional release techniques during the zone but also offer just energy sessions.
