I have been working in the health field since 1994 and I love anatomy and physiology. I have owned my own foot zone office with 6 other Foot Zoners working with me in that office.

Angie Christensen

angieAngie is a passionate truth-seeker. She loves constantly learning and frequently asks, “Is there a better way?” Her own health challenges and the needs of her two amazing adopted boys launched her search for avenues of true healing. She has studied nutrition for 15 years, sorting through all the chaos to identify the unchanging patterns of lasting health. She shares the keys she has discovered through her course at www.SimplyDivineEating.com. She has also been trained in neurofeedback and energy healing. Angie rejoices in witnessing the remarkable transformation happening now in the world as God is pouring down truth, light and tools from heaven to help us bring ourselves, families, and the world to a higher level. Angie loves to think, and she thrives on (very limited) quiet time where she can read, ponder, and do energy work. During the rest of the time while juggling the needs of home and family, she loves music, old movies, cooking shows, visiting the beach and wearing warm fuzzy socks.

Eating in Harmony

Have you ever wondered how to choose foods that support your body energetically, as well as physically, emotionally, and spiritually? Nutrition and energy are inseparable as we seek true healing. However, the world of nutrition is so full of contradictions that we are often left feeling overwhelmed, confused and sometimes even paralyzed as we try to figure out what to eat. But it was never intended to be that way. Truth is never complicated. After 15 years of studying nutrition and testing the application of what I learned, I have found that there are lasting principles about food that have remained true for millennia and will continue to remain true. They are so far-reaching and powerful that they answer every question we encounter about food. These patterns were built them into the food system itself. They act as our foundation, allowing us to adapt the specifics to meet our own unique needs. In this class you will learn how to use these principles to discover exactly what YOUR body is designed to eat.

Susan Noall

sue_noallAlmost 15 years ago I was first introduced to Foot Zoning. A few years into this new journey of Foot Zoning, I was told through the Spirit to move the energy by pulling out the pain of one of my clients. I was amazed with how simple and effective that was. This was my beginning point for the Energy Connection. I have study many different modalities and spend countless hours pondering upon the teachings of the Spirit. I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who has shown me simple truths. The Energy Connection is a class I created to teach others the pure and simple truths that I have been taught. Energy work is something that anyone can learn. It is such a blessing in my life to watch people who have been struggling for years overcome trials, fears, pain, and so much more.

The Energy Connection: finding peace of mind on thought at a time

In The Energy Connection you will learn to not only recognize the thoughts and patterns that are causing the conflict and commotion within you, but to also take control of them, one thought at a time. These negative feelings and thoughts can be manifested through anger, fear, frustration, depression, anxiety, pain etc. As we change our perspectives, we are then able to see things more clearly. This allows us to ACT instead of react, to repair instead of demolish, and to begin the path of healing. The Energy Connection is based off of simple truths. As you learn to move and feel the energy in yourself as well as others. Healing can occur very quickly. However, there is work to be done to remain in balance. The work comes from within you. You alone must control the chaos! You cannot allow negative, self-defeating thoughts, beliefs and actions to take over and control your life. The good news is the commotion will stop as balance and peace of mind occur one thought at a time. As you combine energy work into the zone you will be able to bring balance on all levels.

He got injured in a handball match in 1975. That ended his handball carrier. Then he got treatment by Charles Ersdal and that started his interest of natural medicine and especially zone therapy. He started his education in zone therapy in 1977 with Charles Ersdal as teacher. This was Charles first class ever.

Since 1982 Zone therapy has been his only income. In 2001 he established together with Tonje and Robert Ersdal the company Ersdal & Varpe Ans. This company has as a vision to develop zone therapy to an even more effective treatment and to develop material which can be used in education. He has been educating in Norway since. At the same time he has given further education to old therapists in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia.

He has since 1987 to 2001 been member of board in different organizations who organizing different kind of therapists I Norway. He also has been member of a group which has been appointed by the Norwegian government. This group had as their assignment to prepare for a larger report which should assess the different aspects of legalization of natural medicine I Norway.

Introduction to New Discoveries Within Zone Therapy

Charles Ersdal had an amazing ability of developing the EZT system and Terje Varpe, Tonje, and Robert Ersdal have carried on the development. These developments are divided as follows:

  • The blood circulation system
  • The lymph circulation system
  • The area of the inner pelvis
  • The hormone system

Improving the methods of treating the whole body is always very important. We have improved the treatments involving the blood circulation system, especially the upper part of the aorta. By increasing the number of lymph signals, we have increased their effectiveness in treating lymphatic problems. We have developed 20 new signals for the inner part of the pelvis. In treating the hormone system, we have developed a new way of thinking how the hormone system functions. To help identify which hormones that are out of balance, we have divided thyroid treatments into more specific signals.
