My name is Karen Ames. In December 2014., I was in a car accident that left me with a Traumatic Brain Injury. Refusing to live my life in pain, I sought out new alternative methods of healing. In October 2016, I found Foot Zoning. After one session, I felt an immediate difference in my brain function. After several sessions, I noticed a decrease in tremors, neuropathy and restless leg syndrome. I have been getting ZONED now for 18 months. I no longer take prescription pain medication. My tremors are significantly reduced. I no longer have restless leg syndrome or suffer from effects of neuropathy. I am now a certified Foot Zone Practitioner and instructor for Wellness Life Zone Foot Zone Academy. Call or text today to begin Zoning For Life.
I have been a certified Foot Zone practitioner for 11 years. For the last 3 years, I have been a certified Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner. I am currently working toward being a certified Emotion code practitioner. I have had quite the journey in the discovery of my truth. I became aware of the power of energy work in 2005 because of the physical suffering of my daughter and my own chronic physical pains. I was young yet I felt like I was 80. I began the path of self-discovery to uncover the cause behind the pain. I learned that the limiting attitudes and beliefs accumulated from mental and emotional traumas of my ancestors and my own life experiences were keeping me trapped in undesirable vicious cycles in my life. Once I began the process of reconnecting disrupted energy in my body due to those limiting beliefs and attitudes, I began to overcome my physical and emotional ailments allowing me to thrive spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically... becoming my most authentic self.

Board Members included Dr. Charles Ersdal, and instructors Katri Nordblom of the American Foot Zone Association, Mary Jo Morgan, Julie Holderegger, and Raya Johansson. A year after Doctor Ersdal’s death, Amber started to teach Foot Zone classes in Utah in 1996, instructing basic fundamentals of the technique to help moms administer health needs to their families. She developed flow charts, workbooks and made a DVD for easy Foot Zone study. Over the past 20 years she has worked on several hundred clients with broad varieties of conditions. She studies the issues in-depth, and helps bring clients back to a normal line of health. Through her studies, much inspiration and new discoveries of the Foot Zone have come to her. “It has been a privilege to use the Foot Zone and new discoveries on clients, and see health benefits occur with such a simple technique. I love my career! It’s fun to wake up with passion for what I get to do every day. It’s rewarding to meet clients, and see changes take place for good in their lives. Earlier in life I was so sick, with no answers for me and wondering where to turn. So I get what so many are going through. I have been there too. Foot Zone Therapy gave me back my health and this is exactly why I am a Foot Zone Practitioner and certify others in this field today. “ Complimentary to the Foot Zone, Amber is a Certified LifeLine TM Practitioner by Doctor Darren Weissman of Chicago, who also trained her in Muscle Response Testing, harmonizing subconscious emotional patterns of reaction that may inhibit optimal health, success and joy.

Mindy Nielson has a passion for learning about nutrition, exercise, and the body’s overall ability to heal itself. In a quest to overcoming her health challenges, she began a search for alternative methods. Her own personal search led her to the Foot Zone technique. After the very first appointment, she knew that she had found the help she had been searching for. Each time she had a session, her body continued unraveling imbalances and brought such a life altering change that she knew she needed to bring this to others. Mindy has completed two advanced certification courses in the Foot Zone Technique, and is a Certified FootZone Instructor. Mindy is currently completing her degree in Public Health Education at BYU-I to deepen her knowledge of health and wellness. Mindy has witnessed the benefits of whole food, sleep, sunlight, meditation, exercise, water, and fresh air. When these things are implemented into one’s daily regimen, they aid in healing naturally. She knows that when a person is awakened to the knowledge of health, it empowers them to regain control of their purpose, and as one regains control of purpose, they are able to fulfill their greatest potential. Mindy has seen how the Foot Zone has brought about many miraculous moments in not only her own life, but in the lives of her clients. Nothing brings Mindy greater joy than sharing this hidden treasure of knowledge with the world.

Sharla started Foot Zoning in 2004 and has certification from two different Foot Zone Schools, including learning from one of the very best, Amber Jensen, who was a student of the late Dr. Charles Ersdal. In 2014 Sharla opened up Wellness Life Zone, Foot Zone Academy with Amber Jensen, and with her they have discovered over 80 additional foot zone signals and created beautiful, detailed, illustrated charts that are color coordinated and very easy for our students to understand and follow.

Jill has worked in the corporate world for many years, however, her true passion is holistic healing, nutrition and exercise and how they benefit the body and mind. When she discovered foot zoning and saw how it benefited her she became a Foot Zone Practitioner to help others learn how foot zoning can help them. "Thinking of how foot zoning has helped me and how passionate I feel about holistic healing, I decided to start researching which school would be best for me. I found Wellness Life Zone and they by far had the best technique/modality (I had several instructors from different schools zone my feet) and the best materials for teaching. I also liked that I would be in a classroom setting versus someone’s home. What is so great about Amber and Sharla, is they are always improving their material. They just keep getting better and better! Now that I have graduated, I can say that Wellness Life Zone exceeded my expectations!"
