Peeing Sand

From the title you can see that this story might have a little TMI (Too much information). Welcome to the world of foot zoning.

Kim had been coming to me for regular foot zones for close to a year, having paid me a visit about every month. Definitely what I would consider a regular. With regular…Continue Reading

Lyme’s and Hashimoto’s At Bay

I had a client who was suffering from Lyme’s disease and Hashimoto’s disease. She was barely functioning and her quality of life was very minimal. She had never had a foot zone done before and decided to give it try. After her first foot zone, she found a sense of hope for the first time…Continue Reading

A Moment of Clarity

A Moment of Clarity

Alzheimers and Dementia can be such trying illnesses. Although I have never seen a foot zoning contribute to a complete recovery from these illnesses, I witnessed a little miracle while foot zoning a beautiful women named Falanika.

Falanika had been suffering for years with Alzheimers when I meet her. The disease had progressed to the point that she required…Continue Reading

Vaccinating my children

Vaccinating my children

Vaccines are a controversial subject within the holistic health world and the purpose of this post is not to push an agenda. I believe each person should make that decision for their own family.

Personally, I feel that it is a wonderful thing that we no longer have to worry about awful childhood illnesses like polio. So, I always vaccinated my…Continue Reading

Spinal Headache

Spinal Headache

When I went into labor with my first child, Alison, it was a long process. Almost a full day of labor before I was admitted to the hospital. At that point I was on my second night of no sleep and I was worn out, so when the doctor said it was time to get an…Continue Reading

The perfectly preserved quarter

The perfectly preserved quarter

I have had many cool things happen to clients as a foot zoner, but this experience is one of the funniest! To save this client some humiliation, lets just call her Maggie.

Maggie came to see me about a month after her last foot zone bringing with her a treasure. She showed me a quarter zipped in ziplock bag.…Continue Reading

An injury at the beach or something else…

I love Saturdays in Hawaii. We often spend part of the day lounging on the beach and playing in the water. My children’s new favorite game is riding on a tube together while catching the waves. Wipeouts like the one in the video happen frequently. In this video I happened to catch my youngest, Isaac, getting hurt. If you watch carefully, you can see him emerging from the water and grabbing his neck. Soon after the wipeout Isaac began to complain of a sore neck. I spent the remainder of the outing in the calm waters with him lounging in the tube. When we arrived at home he continued to not feel well and asked me for a foot zone. I love it when my children ask me for a foot zone.

I proceeded to foot zone Isaac, thinking I would need to work his neck muscles and maybe focus on aligning his back. As I worked the first and second areas of the foot zone, most of of the signals on Isaac’s feet felt sore to him. Since this kind of response is usually typical of sickness, not injury, I thought that seemed a little odd.

The third area of a foot zone is where we treat the back and neck. As I moved into this area, I learned that the lymphs in the back were tender but the muscles on the neck were better than I expected. My last clue came when I moved to the bottom of his foot and hit the thymus signal. The thymus regulates the immune system. When this signal is off, the body is usually dealing with a virus. Isaac’s thymus signal felt crunchy, a clear indication of a problem. My suspicions were confirmed. Isaac was dealing with more than just a strained neck. I came to the conclusion that he probably had a virus and not a serious neck injury. Sure enough, within an hour of receiving a foot zone, Isaac had a low-grade fever. Did the foot zone heal the virus? Unfortunately, in this case, no. It helped, but a foot zone is not always a quick fix. I am just thankful I knew the reason he wasn’t feeling good. No damage to his neck, just a 24-hour virus.

What should you expect when getting zoned? While each foot zoner is unique in practice and approach, let me try and help those new to the therapy understand what they might expect. To do this I will share with you what my clients experience.

You will be welcomed into my home and asked to remove your shoes and…Continue Reading
