In 1997, Cade, Christine’s eldest son, was diagnosed with neonatal lupus. After seeking traditional western medical advice, with little success, and after his having been subjected to excessive testing, she and her mother Kathy Duvall sought the healing power of Foot Zone therapy, through which her son became miraculously symptom free. The efficacy of Foot Zone therapy during her son’s illness set Christine and her mother on the path of learning to practice Foot Zone, so that others might also have a chance of improved health.
Christine and Kathy created the Academy of Foot Zone Therapy. They have developed a full curriculum and four text books, which laid the foundation for building the academy. They are currently working with 12 instructors, a data base of providers, monthly conference calls and an annual Foot Zone Therapy conference. Christine has practiced and studied Foot Zone therapy for over ten years. In 2004 she moved to Everett, Washington and has made it her passion and full-time profession.
