History of Zone Therapy

Zone Therapy, in some form, has been practiced as  a healing method for thousands of years. It has come and gone with the rise and fall of civilizations. Hieroglyphics and ancient paintings depicted this therapy has been found in Egypt and India.



The Modern History of Zone Therapy


The modern history of Zone Therapy begins with Dr. William Fitzgerald (1872-1946), an American nose and throat specialist. His accomplishments include: developing a theory describing the electrical circuits or meridians in the body.

In the 1950s a Norwegian named Dr. Charles Ersdal, M.D., M.A., was cured from paralysis using Zone Therapy. This experience insured the following:

  • 26 years of intense research
  • determining that the body contains its own innate healing intelligence
  • healing intelligence can be triggered through specific Foot Zone Therapy
  • how to use the feet's natural "signal" system to establish balance
  • system for elevating your life energy and renewing cells int he body
  • chart the human anatomy as it related to "points" on the foot

One of Dr. Ersdal's most significant discoveries was that the body would consistently respond as a dynamically - interrelated whole, rather than as  separate symptomatic parts.

Zone Therapy has been found to be a "signal", or electro-magnetic system, rather than a reflex system and the body is always treated in its entirety and as a whole.


The Modern History of Zone Therapy


Zone Therapy is precise directed pressure tot he 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 – areas where healing is needed.

Zone Therapy stimulates every organ and renews the cell system in each treatment. Zone Therapy is a holistic  approach which recognizes that all of the body's cells and organs make up a complex and interactive organism.

The results of Zone Therapy do take time. It works with the body's own innate intelligence, and only allows the body to do what it can when it can.

It is extremely important that your Sone Therapy treatment be administered by a Certified Zone Therapist. Much more occurs during a session than meets your eye or awareness, and a practitioner experience is essential to achieving the full physical, mental and emotional benefits. Multiple and consistent sessions over a two month period are recommended to detoxify and establish the body's 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.


Benefits of Zone Therapy


As all of science knows, imbalances or the early stages of ill health occur long before the symptoms are manifest. Therefore detectable imbalances precede observable symptoms. Medically this is called sub-clinical illness. It simply means that an illness or medical problem is not detectable yet. By the time detection occurs, the problem is usually well advanced. With Zone Therapy you gain early detection of these imbalances as they occur. Not only are they detected, they are treated as well.

Zone therapy encourages the body's natural healing capability by stimulating:

  • blood circulation
  • hormone balance
  • lymph flow
  • digestion
  • assimilation
  • elimination
  • function of the autonomic nervous system

Most important benefits include:

  • renewing cell systems
  • rejuvenating life energy
  • bringing the body into balance
  • assess the body's current state of health

Anyone will benefit from Zone Therapy. People of all ages and all conditions of health can enjoy improved health and vitality. You will experience a fuller more active life and can help others do the same.
