About

the Utah Foot Zone Association
The Utah Foot Zone Association has a vision of where we are going

Where are we going?

We resolve to work together in unity for the benefit of the Foot Zone Community; to assist, promote, support, and encourage foot zone practitioners and Educational Entities to practice their trade in freedom, without fear of undue restraint.  This association will never impose any unnecessary requirements or restrictions. It will fulfill the measure of its creation which is to provide a safe working arena where foot zone practitioners and training programs are free to teach and zone as they deem best for their students, clients and themselves while adhering to the tenants of these By-Laws.  We embrace our diversity and combine our efforts to benefit the trade of Foot Zoning and protect the public by recognizing those practitioners meeting professional standards.

Kim Stewart

Kim Stewart

Communications Director

In her early 20s, Kim Stewart was surprised to discover that modern medical doctors did not meet all of her family’s needs. She has been building a personal health toolbox since that time. In 2012 Kim became a certified foot zoner with Kristen Bowen studio. Because she wanted to understand even more, she earned a second certification with Susan Tiede at The Foot Zone Center in 2014.

Kim continues her life-long education through reading, workshops, conferences, and studying many modalities and health practices. Foot zoning allows this stay-at-home mom and grandma the opportunity to passionately serve family and friends.

Amber Jensen

Amber Jensen

UFZA Chairman Elect

In 1992 -1994 Amber studied Foot Zone and graduated with Doctor Charles Ersdal M.D., M.A., father of Foot Zone Therapy Technique. In 1996 she created her first Foot Zone curriculum, advancing it over the years for easy study. In 2013 Amber and Sharla Pearce developed a color coded foot zone curriculum including animation, with new signals they had discovered over several years. In 2014, they opened Wellness Life Zone and the Foot Zone Academy. They teach three levels of foot zoning, including certification with the advanced signals, gem tools and the gemi zone. They also teach continued education for all foot zone practitioners and holistic healers, including the gemi zone and tools, the gentle healing classes for emotion and energy work, and online anatomy physiology with the 4 bodies of health.

“It’s rewarding to see clients and students have changes take place for good in their lives. Foot Zone Therapy gave me back my health and this is exactly why we opened the Wellness Life Zone Center, and are certifying others in this field today.”

Complimentary to the foot zone, Amber is a Certified LifeLine TM Practitioner by Doctor Darren Weissman of Chicago. She is trained in Cranial Sacral, Allergy Release, and the Neuro Emotional Technique from Nancy Wilson of Oregon. Amber has in-depth studies of anatomy and physiology, gem therapy, color therapy, Tao 5 element energy work, health supplementation, greens, tinctures, chakras and aroma therapy.

Amber is married to Douglas B. Jensen. They have 6 children, 5 grandchildren. Amber works closely with the youth in her church, and loves the quotes, “A smile is a curve that can set most anything straight” and “There isn’t anyone I can’t love when given a chance to know their story.”

Claire Miller

Education Director

My name is Claire Miller. I am relatively new to foot zoning but have been a client for several years. I have worked in the energy field for a very long time using neurolinguistics therapy, emotion code, and eliminating self-defeating behaviors. Foot zoning has changed my life and I love every minute that I am involved in serving another person.

It is my desire as a board member to serve you and help promote our practices in a way that others can see the great benefits and enjoy healing.

Tammi Sumsion

UFZA Historian

Healing has always been a part of Tammi’s life. Growing up in a family where her grandfather was the coach for the local first aid teams in Wyoming but was always sought out to help with medical issues until a doctor could be located, Tammi knew that healing others was where she wanted to spend her time studying. Graduating as a Respiratory Therapist she has had many experiences in the hospital and homecare healing and helping other people. Even though she has been trained in allopathic medicine she has always tried to seek out holistic ways to heal before using allopathic measures. She loves learning about the human body and especially loved her human anatomy courses during her study. She has been married for 15 years and has 3 beautiful children, 2 boys and a girl. She was introduced to foot zoning when her oldest son was diagnosed with autism and would have him zoned weekly. She saw some wonderful improvements with him and has been hooked ever since. Having the love of learning, two years ago provided her the opportunity to learn how to zone and she became certified in March 2017. Learning the modality of foot zoning has been a great blessing in her life as well as her family and friends lives. Although she is new to this practice she looks forward to learning from all those she is surrounded by who have such great knowledge in the healing of the body and soul.

Marissa Webb

Marissa Webb

Secretary

Marissa has been a Foot Zone Practitioner since June of 2013, and has been happily married to her husband, Cameron, for almost 3 years. She first learned about the world of Foot Zoning as a senior in high school. She heard about Foot Zoning and decided to try it after suffering with chronic migraines, constant stomach aches, and hormonal problems for several years. She started to get relief from the symptoms she had struggled with for years! She fell in love with the treatments and decided to become a Foot Zone Practitioner herself, because she wanted to help other people feel their best too. She loves working with her clients of all ages, and loves seeing the hope come back into their eyes as they start to feel at peace in their body again, and to recognize changes in themselves, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. She is honored to be a part of their personal healing journey. Marissa is looking forward to the opportunity to serve on the Board, and is excited to be able to connect more with other Foot Zoner Practitioners!
