Treatments & Options

Zone Therapy

Zone Therapy is a branch of Alternative Medicine. It is a comprehensive treatment of the whole body that is administered through the feet and ankles. It was designed to balance and normalize the entire body as it stimulates the body in it's entirety every time to bring you true whole body wellness.

Zone Therapy helps to normalize and optimize the functioning of the entire body by targeting all of its systems; blood circulation, lymph circulation, hormone balance, elimination, digestion, assimilation, and the autonomic nervous system. It is delivered by triggering specific points on the feet that transmit a corrective signal to the brain, autonomic nervous system, and the specific area in order to restore health to that area. The treatment is delivered in accordance with the studies and mapping established by Dr. Charles Ersdal MD (MA). 

For receipt of the treatment you will be barefoot and the practitioner will apply pressure to multiple areas of the feet and ankles. This therapy is offered at all locations.

We believe that true health consists of treating all aspects of the mind, body, and spirit therefore in addition to offering Zone Therapy we are excited to support people on their mental, emotional path of growth by offering The Avatar Course.

Avatar is a series of courses that provide people with extremely effective experiential tools and exercises for exploring consciousness and broadening their potential and abilities. Matilda began her practice of Avatar at the age of 12 and her love for this work grows every day.
