Ancient civilizations understood the reflex connections, known as signals, located in the hands and in the feet that connect with the organs and systems of the body. Evidence has been found in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Asia, and other places in that world showing them working on the body through the feet. This practice has continued through the ages. In modern times, Dr. Eunice Ingham began her study of Reflexology and Zone Therapy in the 1930s and created the maps of the feet we’re familiar with today. She published her findings in her book titled Stories the Feet Can Tell Through Reflexology.
Dr. Charles Ersdal of Norway used reflexology and other alternative modalities to heal his body after suffering a stroke. Through all of his studies, he created what is known as Foot Zone Therapy.
Using the detailed mapping of the body and the Foot Zone Technique, a trained and certified Foot Zone Balance practitioner is able to access the body through the feet to restore balance in the body. An analogy of a computer is often used to demonstrate how Foot Zone Therapy works. Just like a keyboard would be used to access the processing unit of a computer, the feet are used the keyboard to access the brain and systems of the body. A computer that’s been running for a long period of time will not operate at its optimal capacity. In order for it to operate at optimal capacity, the computer needs to be defragmented and rebooted. A Foot Zone Therapy session is comparable to “defragmenting” and “rebooting” the body by balancing the body’s internal vibration, creating the ideal environment for the body to encourage natural healing.
Foot Zoning can access not only the physical body, but also invite balance into the emotional, spiritual, and mental energy bodies.
