Why Do We Foot Zone?
Every foot zoner has a story. Here's ours.
Life changes and career changes follow inspired action:
Thank you for your time, we hope our long story is entertaining and inspires you in some way.
My name is Brad Noall and my wife’s name is Susan. We live in Wellsville, Utah and have been here for 32 years. We have been married for 34 years and have 5 fantastic kids, 3 daughter in laws and 6 fantastic grandchildren. We have ran a Landscape business since 1984 and have totally enjoyed it. We both love to work outside and love to play hard. It has always just been a way of life.
Yes, We really do work on feet! If someone would have told us in 1998 that we would be rubbing people’s toes and helping them find balance, we would have both laughed out loud. Life is nothing liked we planned. Susan was the first to get trained in 1999, shortly after, in the year of 2000 I received my training. Now, in 2020, four of our 5 children are trained Foot Zoners, and all 3 of our daughter in laws are Foot Zoners too. Susan also teaches her Energy Connection course and our daughter Bree is one of our many Instructors.
Something Needed to Change
So how does someone go from playing in the dirt and grass to working on feet? I’ll tell you, it is quite a story. After our last child, Susan had postpartum depression, the good old baby blues and she had it bad! Sue thought that after 5 kids it was normal to be tired, overwhelmed, grumpy, moody, up and down emotionally. As her husband, I could hardly do anything right. I didn’t know if I should duck coming around her or just avoid her all together. I knew something wasn’t right and she knew it also. Even though she was not one to take any medications, not even an aspirin, we both agreed that she should go to the Dr. and address the issue and hopefully get some help.
Wellness in a foot rub? It's worth a try!
It was at this time I heard of this weird thing where someone could rub your feet and make you feel better. It was something called Foot Zoning. We thought it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try. We made an appointment for both of us thinking it would be a nice relaxing foot massage. Keep in mind that at this time in our lives we were both fairly active and thought we were in great physical shape.
Well, Sue was zoned first and the Foot Zone Therapist found everything on her feet that we knew was wrong with her and much more, and yes she did feel it! In the old days, 20 years ago, it was taught to use a very hard and firm pressure.
I was next in line, and boy did I have a shock coming, Remember, I was not the problem right?
There may be something to this!
When I was zoned, almost all of the signals in my feet were shut down; I was apparently worse off than Sue. I was told that I was one of the worst clients that she had ever zoned. This was because of the chemical poisoning that I had from being around chemicals in the landscaping business and an extremely poor diet I had for 20 years prior. The practitioner told me my body would most likely detoxify and I could possibly not feel very well.
I thought to myself, “I am in control of my body! I will be just fine.” Still, I was very skeptical when I got home, I fell fast asleep on the bed and didn’t wake for three hours. The next day I could taste chemicals in my mouth. I figured there has got to be something to this!
The happy Susan was back!
Susan was instantly impressed. Before we left the appointment, she was feeling so much better! She knew in her heart that she had to learn how to Foot Zone. She was very insistent with the practitioner that she needed to take the classes. At that time, way back in 1999, the Foot Zone training was difficult to come across, it was only advertised by word of mouth.
Sue felt it necessary to have several treatments over a 14 day period to get a jump start on her recovery. She said in that short time her emotional imbalance, postpartum and energy had a 180 degree change. Susan even commented that all of the colors seemed to be brighter!
She and I both felt that there was no need to seek medication anymore. As she tells everyone, “the happy Sue was back!”
We have got to learn how to do this!
Sue was truly blessed. One week after our first Zone appointment she found a class starting in our area. She initially had a hard time making contact with the instructor. Not knowing if she could get into a class, or more importantly how we were going to pay for it.
She left a message with the instructor saying that she was going to show up at the class and if it was full she would simply go home. She was determined to take Inspired Action.. We still had no way to pay for the training, our finances were extremely tight and we were barely able to cover our business payroll. But we had a very strong belief that she needed to be there.
Of course, we received in the mail, just two days before the class started, a check from the IRS, paying us back for overpaid taxes from the year before. It was just enough to pay our charitable donations and to pay for the class and the books. She showed up to class and was obviously not sent home. We haven’t looked back since then.
For me, I had no desire to learn how to foot zone at that point. I was very happy with Sue just practicing on me. After Sue graduated, and after I addressed several energy issues in my own body that were holding me back, (that’s a story we will save for later) I got the urge to become a Foot Zoner. I went through the classes and graduated.
We are only the messengers, not the message.
Our lives have been greatly blessed because of this wonderful tool we have learned. We have seen miracle after miracle. We have seen people’s lives changed, we have seen relationships get better, and we have seen people overcome health problems. To help someone’s body heal itself naturally and to see them change for the better brings such great fulfillment.
What Susan and I do is nothing magical. It is not about what we do; it’s about the Foot Zone. People have been accessing the human body through the feet since the beginning of time. As long as the Foot Zone is done correctly and completely the person being zoned will experience benefits.
Sue and I both believe that we are just a tool in the hands of Someone greater! We are just the messengers, NOT the message.
