It is based on many of his influences and experiences. One of his major influences was the teachings of Dr. Thurman Fleet who created Zone Therapy in 1931 in San Antonio, Texas. After learning Zone Therapy in 1993 and refining it over the next two decades, Dr. Peter Goldman of San Francisco, California created The Zone Technique.
How the Zones work:
Dr. Fleet taught the following - "there are only six kinds of disturbances that can affect the human body. These are GLANDULAR, ELIMINATIVE, NERVOUS, DIGESTIVE, MUSCULAR, and CIRCULATORY. All diseased conditions, aches and pains, and other discomforts experienced by the body can be attributed to one or more of the above disturbances to the body’s 6 systems or Zones."
According to Dr. Fleet, the human brain is composed of many centers. These centers form in the embryonic stage of life and develop from the dorso-medial ectoderm of the embryo. There is a center which controls the glands of the body, a center which is associated with the organs of elimination, a center which regulates the central nervous system, and which is differentiated as an ectodermal neural plate in the dorso-medial region of the ectoderm.
The digestive organs are regulated by a brain center. In the motor cortex of the brain we find a center which controls all of the muscles of the body, and in the caudate nuclei (both), we find the center which regulates the flow of fluids (circulation) through the body.
Because the body may be properly classified as an ELECTRICAL MACHINE, these 6 brain centers represent the POSITIVE POLE of the body, and specific related points in the spinal cord represent the NEGATIVE POLE of the body. When there is a disturbance in any of the bodily areas, one or more of these centers are “shorted out." There has been a disruption of normal function of the entire center due to the effect of emotional, physical, or chemical stress.
The Zone Practitioner examines the client to determine which of the brain centers are not in harmony with the systems they control. This is done by the Zone Practitioner feeling specific points on the client's head. These points are related to the six brain centers by nerve connections. When a brain center is not sending the proper signals to its system, all bodily material associated with that system suffers. In order to correct this, the Zone Practitioner stimulates specific points in the spinal cord.
There are six sets of four points in the spinal cord (negative pole) that are related to the six brain centers (positive pole). Stimulation of the proper points by the Zone Practitioner sends healing energy up the spinal cord to the brain centers that need balancing. The balanced brain centers then are able to send out the proper signals to the body’s systems and the body is better able to heal itself.
Why the Zone Technique?
Dr. Pete's results speak for themselves. While he gets incredible results with musculoskeletal cases, about 80% of his patients come to him for systemic health imbalances, most after they have tried and failed with medical doctors, other chiropractors, acupuncture, homeopathy, etc.
How Dr. Pete developed the Zone Technique:
When most people think of chiropractic, they think of neck and back pain relief. Of course chiropractic is an excellent way to relieve neck and back pain, but this is only a fraction of what the original chiropractic is all about. The founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer, taught that altered nerve flow was the root cause of disease, and that misaligned spinal vertebrae negatively effect nerve flow. He taught that restoring the vertebrae to their proper alignment would restore health. Dr. Pete carries on this tradition.
Specifically, Dr. Pete's Zone Technique is built upon the principles of Palmer's real chiropractic, combined with the teachings of Dr. Thurman Fleet (1895-1983). Dr. Fleet created Zone Therapy in 1931. The healing results his patients achieved were unparalleled.
In the early 1990's, Dr. Pete began studying alongside several of Dr. Fleet's top students and created his Zone Technique.
Since graduating chiropractic school, the phenomenal results have continued, leading to patients flying from all over the world to get adjusted by Dr. Pete.
Zone Therapy yields amazing results!
I was personally trained by Dr. Pete Goldman and it has revolutionized my practice. Zone Therapy is a timeless healing art.
When the body is in balance, the brain sends the proper signals to every cell, organ and body system, allowing it to function optimally. Stimulating the appropriate points along the spine opens nerve flow to the affected areas resulting in often immediate improvement.
Think about this...a body in balance: doesn't hurt, isn't depressed or anxious, produces abundant energy, sleeps well, finds it's healthy weight, thinks clearly, has perfect circulation and healthy digestion.
