Why Foot Zoning?

After my daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury, I left no stone unturned to ease her symptoms and improve her quality of life.

My Story

I’ve worked in the conventional medical field for over 45 years and I’ve seen multitudes of good results with quality medical healthcare during that time.  I have equally seen excellent results from friends and acquaintances who have sought out alternative healthcare.  These practices intrigued me.  I had even dabbled some in essential oils and had seen a reflexologist a few times years ago, but it wasn’t until 2007  when I was suddenly faced with a life changing event that I started researching alternative modalities in earnest.

My 4.5-month-old grand-daughter . . .

had suffered a traumatic brain injury which left her with impairments mentally, emotionally, and physically she would forced to endure for the rest of her life. These symptoms most closely resemble those of severe Autism with the addition of being nonverbal, epilepsy, and legal blindness.  My husband and I adopted her shortly after her injury, and my quest to “leave no stone unturned” to help her with these residual symptoms eventually led me to foot zoning and  Wellness Life Zone Foot Zone Academy.

I initially only wanted to learn to do foot zoning to help my family, especially our little girl.

In my training, I had to do numerous zones on different people and the more I performed, the more it became apparent that there was really something here.  More and more people would confirm that the signals I was triggering on their feet during the foot zone directly corresponded to issues they were having or had experienced in their bodies.  They would even share that they could feel positive results for several days after receiving the zone.  I determined that this wasn’t something I could only share with friends and family.  I had to be able to provide this non-invasive modality to others.  Shortly after receiving my certification, Sole Wellness Foot Zone Therapy was established.

Not long afterward, I was introduced to Harmonic Light Therapy . . .

which combines red/near-infrared light and the tuning power of Resonant Frequency to the body.  I purchased this FDA OTC cleared the light system for use by my daughter, but was so impressed by the results it gave in relaxing the nervous system, that it is now a part of the services I offer in my practice.

Thanks for stopping by Sole wellness!

I am a craniosacral therapist and came to Shawn seeking pain relief because I sustained an injury to my shoulder lifting a patient.  Shawn has been giving me foot zone and light therapy treatments and these have been incredible in relieving my pain, discomfort and dysfunction.  After receiving a session I will have up to 50% in pain relief lasting up to six hours.  I have also found that not only do I have the pain relief, but I also have a sense of wellness, a sense of calm, an ability to tolerate the discomfort of the injury itself.  It is really incredible as I have tried so many other kinds of therapies to no avail.  I am so really impressed with the quality of the therapy and think you will be too.  Give it a try, Shawn is great!

Shawn did my feet and it is "amazing!"  My lower back and foot that I've had surgery on felt really good for quite a few days.  I need to do it again!

I'm a disabled vet who suffers from PTSD, and a multitude of other physical ailments.  I have had 3 surgeries in the past 6 months and I am constantly in that "fight or flight" mode where I can't sleep, or relax.  When I have a foot zone and use the red/near infrared lights, it takes me to a very relaxed state where I can actually sleep and give my brain a chance to slow down.  I have actually been known to snore during a session.  I highly recommend a foot zone session by Shawn.
