The Zone Technique was created by Dr. Thurman Fleet in 1931. In addition to aligning the spine to allow for proper nerve flow, the application of The Zone Technique stimulates the spinal cord in specific places to balance the centers of the brain. This allows the brain to properly communicate with the cells of the body so that the body can be balanced.
