Aboutthe Utah Foot Zone Association
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.
Promoting the continual Education and Growth of our members.
Developing a general code for ethical behavior among association members.
Striving to find new ways to unify the foot zone community
Helping to guide legislative decisions, providing greatest freedom for certified Foot Zone Practitioners and Educators.
Kathy has been involved with natural healing for over 40 years. She has had experiences in many modalities but has found her home and love in the art of Foot Zone Therapy. Kathy studied with Karti Nordbloom and graduated from her school in 1991. Since that time she has wanted to change the laws to allow Foot Zoning to reach a much larger audience. The creation of the Utah Foot Zone Association, and the changing of Utah laws, has been a dream come true for Kathy. She and her daughter founded the Academy of Foot Zone Therapy, which is located in Southern Utah. She has been teaching, training and certifying both zoners and instructors for over 15 years and appreciates the opportunity to work with those who share her love for natural healing.

UFZA Chairman Elect
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.

SecretaryMarissa 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!
