Wellness Life Zone has discovered and documented each individual acupressure point on the map of the foot zone, for every single vertebra of the spinal column. The backbone is a series of individually aligned bones known as our vertebrae. Peripheral nerves originate at the spinal cord, and exit between each vertebra to their perspective targets throughout the body. When a vertebra bone becomes misaligned, it can pinch one of the peripheral nerves responsible for servicing specific bodily functions, causing issues.

During a Wellness Life Zone, foot zone session, issues involving the spinal column misalignment, and the pinching of peripherals nerves, due to the misalignment, can be addressed through the acupressure points on the foot zone map of the feet.


Today’s blog is about the thoracic vertebrae, which are a series of 12 vertebral bones, aligned just below the cervical neck bones, and end above the lumbar bones of the back.  The 12 thoracic bones form the middle segment of the vertebral column.  Each thoracic vertebra is associated with a rib, and form the posterior part of the rib cage.  Beneath each vertebra, extends a set peripheral nerves to a target in the body, servicing many areas, such as the shoulders, arms, organs of the chest, etc.  Do any of the following symptoms apply to you?

T1- If you are experiencing shoulder pains, neck cramps, lower arm and hand pains, ligament inflammations, finger sensations, you may be experiencing a misalignment from T1.  However, T1 also effects the esophagus, trachea, and heart.

T2- This nerve controls the heart, its valves, and covering coronary arteries.  It also controls the lungs and bronchial tubes.  If you are experiencing symptoms of heart trouble, some disruption in heart rhythm, chest pains, or fears, it may be due to injuries from T1-T6.

T3- This nerve controls the lungs, bronchial tubes, pleura, the chest, breast, and the heart.  If you are experiencing pain and symptoms such as bronchitis, influenza, pleurisy, pneumonia, coughing, asthma or breathing difficulties, this thoracic vertebra may be pinching off its peripheral nerve.

T4- This nerve controls the gallbladder and its common duct.  It also controls the heart, lungs, and bronchial tubes.  If you have gallbladder trouble, including gall stones, liver jaundice, headaches on your right side, along the gallbladder meridian, T4 may be pinching this nerve.,

T5- This nerve controls the esophagus and stomach, the liver, solar plexus, circulation throughout the body, and the heart.  If you are experiencing anemia, arthritis, circulatory weakness, disruptions of the liver, fatigue, low blood pressure, or shingles, T5 may be pinching this nerve.

T6- This nerve controls the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, and peritoneum.   If you are experiencing diabetes, heartburn, or stomach and digestive problems, it may be due to T6 vertebra pinching this peripheral nerve.

T7- This nerve controls so many organs, including the appendix, adrenal cortex, colon, kidneys, ovaries, pancreas, spleen, testes, and uterus.  Many people with a back injury from T7-T12 region, may be experiencing pain or symptoms of duodenal ulcers, feelings of weakness, hiccups, possible lack of vitamin uptake, or stomach complaints, T7 may be pinching this peripheral nerve.

T8- This nerve also controls many of the organs like T7.  This nerve controls the adrenal cortex, gallbladder, liver, spleen, stomach, they pyloric valve, and small intestine.  If you are experiencing pain and symptoms of spleen problems, or a weakened immune system, this nerve may be pinched.

T9- This nerve controls the adrenal cortex, gallbladder, ovaries, pancreas, spleen, small intestine, and uterus.  If you are experiencing allergies or nettle rash, this nerve may be pinched.

T10- This nerve controls the adrenal glands, appendix, kidneys, large intestine, ovaries, pancreas, spleen, testes, and uterus.  If you are experiencing clogged arteries, chronic tiredness, this nerve may be pinched.

T11- This nerve controls the adrenal gland, kidneys, ileocecal valve, large intestine, bladder, ureters, and uterus.  If you are experiencing, skin conditions such as acne, boils, eczema, psoriasis, spots, or raw skin, this nerve may be pinched.

T12- This nerve controls the ileocecal valve, large intestine, lymph circulation, small intestine, large intestine, kidneys, and bladder.  If you are experiencing problems with the intestinal tract, gas, rheumatism, infertility, erectile dysfunction, or disruption of growth, this nerve may be pinched
