Feet ground us to the earth, and when the signals in our feet are damaged or shut down, our body often feels sluggish, stressed and unable to function. Foot zone technique is designed to bring the entire body into balance, and this technique treats the body as a whole. Specific diseases or problems are not addressed, but rather the whole body is brought to a state of homeostasis.
Many use foot zone techniques to complement other treatments when they are suffering from other ailments like anxiety, cancer treatments, cardiovascular issues, asthma, diabetes, headaches or even PMS. Others find the techniques relaxing and even refreshing.
What is Foot Zone Technique
Foot zone technique is direct pressure applied to different areas of your feet. Before starting the session, a foot zone practitioner looks at your foot and seeks for discolorations, texture, tenderness, and overall wellness. A foot zone practitioner always treats the entire body by triggering all acupressure points on the feet that correlate with every system, organ, and cell in the body.

The foot zone technique stimulates all the organs of the body and renews cell systems. It is a holistic approach that works with the knowledge that all the body’s cells and organs are interconnected, and specific trigger points can stimulate the cells in these organs to function at a premium level.
Most people have blocked signals on their feet. A practitioner needs to open up these signal points using pressure and manipulation. There are many styles of foot zone therapy. In some regions of the world, practitioners are taught to use tools, and others are taught to use only their hands. Wellness Life Zone, Foot Zone Academy uses hands and also uses specially designed gem spheres or sticks known as Gemi Tools that help access the signals and amplify the healing process. The idea of foot zone therapy isn’t to force your zones to open up, but instead, a session allows your body, through stimulation of your innate blueprint to wholeness, do what needs to be done to activate the signals from your feet to your brain.
