Zone Therapy

 What is Zone Therapy?

Zone therapy is the simplest method of giving treatment. According to this therapy, by applying on-and-off pressure on the tips of the fingers or toes, which represent five zones on each side, the energy imbalance in the zones can he corrected to relieve pain and restore health.

The whole body is divided into ten equal longitudinal zones, running the length of the body from the top of the head to the tip of the toes and fingers. As the zones end on the finger tips and tips of the toes, the entire body can he manipulated by applying pressure on the tips of the fingers and toes. Any imbalance in any part of the zone can be corrected by applying pressure on the corresponding finger tips.

What is a referral area?

Since similar zones pass through the fingers and toes, the legs, beginning from the hip joint can be relieved from pain by manipulating the ‘Referral’ area on the corresponding hand, starting from the shoulder joint and vice versa.

The corresponding referral areas are:

Shoulder - Hip       

Forearm - Calf

Upper arm - Thigh 

Wrist - Ankle

Elbow - Knee   

Hand  - Foot

Fingers - Toes

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. William Fitzgerald of USA observed at the beginning of this century, that the direct pressure applied on certain points in the body produced an anesthetic (analgesic) effect on the corresponding part of the person. He is known as the Father of Zone Therapy. He systematized the body in zones. This knowledge is being used for therapeutic applications. Zone therapy was popularized by Dr. Edwin Bowers who worked with Dr. Fitzgerald. Dr. Riley's assistant, Mrs. Eunice Ingham, charted the feet in relation to the zone therapy and their effect on rest of the body.

Zone Therapy cures stomach aches !!----Author's Personal Experience

"Once I myself had a slight stomach ache after dining out at a party. Having worked with Zone Therapy on so many people, I felt I should try it out on self to get relief from the stomach ache.

I started applying on and off pressure at the tips of the index and middle fingers for 3 minutes. I felt a great relief in just another couple of minutes. It is indeed very difficult to explain the cure but one can certainly experience it."
