Balance Your Body with the Zone Technique


Whether you suffer from pain, headaches, poor digestion, restless sleep, weak focus, low energy or immune system issues, balancing your body can help you heal!

The Zone Technique Helps You Heal By Finding and Fixing Any Disturbances in the Signals Between Your Brain and Your Body

Imagine that your body is a bit like an electrical system, powered by six “circuits” that formed in your brain during your embryonic stage of development.  These six “circuits” regulate and influence:

1.    Your glands

2.    Your elimination process

3.    Your nervous system

4.    Your digestive organs

5.    Your muscle system

6.    Your circulation

When your body experiences and responds to emotional, physical, or chemical stress, you experience a disruption in the normal function of one or more of these circuits.  It’s a bit like that circuit “shorted out.”  The results of a “short circuit” can create symptoms in the body…….from headaches and pain to indigestion, depression, insomnia, and everything in between.

Before Dr. Theresa makes an adjustment, she feels six specific points on your head to determine which of your brain’s “circuits” is out of harmony with the bodily systems they control.  When she finds the circuit that has shorted out, Dr. Theresa makes a chiropractic adjustment that stimulates specific points on your spinal cord.

These adjustments allow a proper flow of signals between the spinal cord and the “circuits” in your brain that need balancing.  The balanced “circuit” can then send the proper signals back to the malfunctioning system in your body.  The result is that your body becomes better able to heal itself.

This is what we mean when we say the Zone Technique “balances your body.”

This is what to expect after a Zone adjustment………

First Zone (Glandular System)   We are restoring normal nerve life to all the glands in your head. You will notice an improvement in your Memory, an improvement in your Energy, an improvement in the texture of your Skin, and an improvement in your Hair.

Normal nerve life is being restored to the glands in your Stomach, to your Thyroid Gland, to your Adrenals, and to all Glands of digestion. You will notice an improvement in your Appetite, in your Digestion, in your Ability to Sleep, and in your Elimination.

Nerve life to your entire Glandular System is being increased. This brings on a feeling of relaxation, a better outlook on life in general. You are not so apt to lose your temper or to become irritated. You will also be able to concentrate better.

Second Zone (Elimination System)   The adjustment of the nerves to the Sinuses will cause drainage from that area. Mucus will be eliminated and will drop from the nasal passage into your throat, especially in the morning. Also, there will be much blowing of mucus from the nose.

In order to get all accumulated mucus out of the bronchial tubes and lungs, we are stimulating the nerves to those areas. You will begin to cough up this mucus. SPIT IT OUT – Do not swallow it.

In order that the accumulated toxins in the body can be quickly eliminated, we are restoring nerve life to your Kidneys. They will filter better, and you will notice that they work more frequently. You will begin to drink more water, as this is required by the kidneys during this eliminative period.

The nerves to the Small Intestines and the Colon are being restored to normal. You will have more bowel movements than in the past. Do not become alarmed if you notice a few cramps in abdomen. Nature is merely cleaning you out.

Third Zone (Nervous System)   We are adjusting the nerve supply to your central nervous system. There should be an improvement in your nervous condition. The Eyes will become stronger. The Ears will become keener, and in general your Sense Organs will normalize themselves.

The nerve supply to the Solar Plexus is being restored to normal. Your Digestion will improve and you will not take things so seriously – Relaxation will come to you and you will soon want to take a nap each day. Do So – it will help to restore you to health.

Adjustment of the nerve supply to Generative Organs will bring an immediate improvement in that area.

Your Third Zone restoration will bring better appetite – better digestion – better elimination – a more relaxed feeling- better sleep – better nerves.

Fourth Zone (Digestive System)   As the nerves to the Liver are being adjusted, you will notice an improvement in our appetite. Food will taste better and will be digested better.

Restoring the nerves to the Gall Bladder to normal will bring about better digestion and better elimination from the bowels.

Restoration of the Stomach Glands to normal will enable you to eat foods that have upset you in the past. Your appetite will improve and digestion troubles will disappear.

All Glands to the Intestines are being stimulated. This will enable you to assimilate food better. There should be a tendency to return to normal weight.

Fifth Zone (Muscular System)   All muscles in the neck region and arms are being restored to normal. There will be better movement and a more normal feeling in these muscles.

Nerve life in proper amount is being sent to all muscles of the chest, abdomen and back. Muscle contractures producing distortion in the spine will release. Normal tone is being restored to other muscles, thus further aiding in straightening distortions ad curvatures. Pain will diminish, and a feeling of ease, as well as of increased strength and suppleness will be noticed.

Muscles of the pelvic region and thighs are being restored to normal. You will not tire so much from walking. Greater strength will become apparent.

All muscles from the thigh down to the feet are being normalized. Pain in these regions will disappear, and there will be noticed a general relaxed condition.

Sixth Zone (Circulatory System)   Adjustment of the nerves to the Thyroid Gland will have a tendency to regulate your Blood Pressure. If too high it will decrease. If too low it will increase. The Thyroid regulated blood pressure.

All nerves to the Heart are being restored to normal. There will be a change for the better, and you will notice a feeling of ease and strength all over your body.

The blood vessels of the back – arms – chest and abdomen are being brought to normal, and better circulation will naturally result. Aches and pains in these parts will leave, and a feeling of strength and well-being will appear.

Blood vessels – lymph vessels of the lower extremity will be brought to normal, and you will become aware of more circulation in this area. You will not tire so easily, and in general will notice more ease of improvement in your limbs.
