Zone Technique

Why Zone Technique?

When most people think of chiropractic, they think of relief for neck or back pain. While chiropractic is excellent for pain relief it is only a fraction of what chiropractic has to offer. In the early days of this profession, chiropractors helped and were sought out by people with all types of problems like, issues with their breathing, stomach, digestion, infertility, vision, sleep, fatigue, hearing, memory, emotions, vital organs, hormone imbalance, and many others. Today, doctors that utilize the zone technique are getting these great results once again.

Dr. Thurman Fleet founded Zone Therapy in 1931 after reading a British copy of Gray’s Anatomy which detailed the correlation between different areas of the brain and 6 points on the back of the head. Dr. Fleet taught that, “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 six systems or Zones.”

Before enrolling in Chiropractic school, Pete Goldman was a patient of Dr. Kayata in Brooklyn who was a student of Dr. Fleet. While in school, Dr. Pete sought out and learned as much as he could from three more students of Dr. Fleet. Combining the knowledge of Dr. Fleet and his four mentors Dr. Pete refined and developed Zone Technique.

Dr. Pete has been practicing since 1997 using the Zone Technique and his results have been nothing short of amazing. He has worked with many elite athletes, but day in and day out he helps people from all walks of life just like you. In 2017, Dr. Pete opened Zone school sharing this amazing healing technique with other doctors around the world.

Personally, since starting to practice the Zone Technique I have seen greater results than I did in the first 9 years of practice. I am excited to share this healing technique with my patients because my greatest joy in the office is seeing people get better from aches, pains, and illnesses that have reduced their quality of life.


Zone 1 – Glandular System

Z1Your body’s glands create more chemicals than a pharmaceutical company, this zone is your inner pharmacy. The brain sends signals to the 200+ glands in the body, releasing essential hormones and chemicals for perfect health.

Various kinds of stress including thoughts, emotions, and environmental toxins affect the glandular system. If these stressors are intense enough or last over a long period of time it causes an imbalance of the glandular system. This imbalance prohibits normal nerve energy from the brain center to the glands, resulting in too little or too much of certain hormones being released.

For example, prolonged fear or worry stresses the adrenal glands and over time causes illness. This imbalance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to your glandular organs creating a multitude of problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 1 can cause symptoms like…

Memory loss, insomnia, skin rashes/conditions, alopecia, hair loss, menstrual irregularity, male and female infertility, thyroid dysfunction, hypothyroidism, low energy, adrenal insufficiency, depression, erectile dysfunction, quick to anger, lose temper easily, lack of concentration or focus, low immunity, excessive appetite…

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 1 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 1 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Glandular Health:

  • Strong immune function
  • Great concentration and memory
  • Perfect sleep
  • Normal appetite
  • Excellent skin, hair, and nails
  • Normal energy and emotional balance
  • Excellent reproductive function

Zone 2 – Elimination System

Z2The purpose of this zone is to eliminate or flush out built up waste and toxins from your body. The organs in the elimination zone are the sinuses, lungs, kidneys, intestines, bladder, colon, and skin.

Each cell in your body produces waste material as a natural byproduct of living and these need to have a way of being flushed out. Just like the plumbing system in your house, when it is “backed up” it is a dirty place to live. It is the same with the body when you have improper elimination, it prevents the waste from being flushed out, poisoning it from the inside out.

When the elimination system is working at 100%, you could ingest less than ideal food, dirty air, allergens, bacteria, and viral particles without even knowing because you can flush it out without getting sick. Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause an unbalanced brain center causing a compromised elimination system.

An Unbalanced Zone 2 can cause symptoms like…

Plugged or runny sinuses, throat pain, cough, lung conditions, kidney problems, bloating, bladder problems, constipation or diarrhea, or lymphedema.

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 2 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 2 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Eliminative Health:

  • Fewer colds and flu
  • Normal breathing
  • Strong immunity
  • Normal bowel and bladder function
  • Proper allergen response

Zone 3 – Nervous System

Z3This zone consists of 45 miles of nerves and is considered the master balancing system of the body. It normally switches you “off” and “on”. It allows you to relax, digest food, and sleep well at night. At the same time, it gets you up in the morning refreshed, energized, and ready for action.

Many people are stuck in an “on” or “off” state due to stressors in their life, many doctors call this depression or anxiety. This causes an overload to your nervous system. Just like the electricity in your house when there is an overload the fuses burn out.

When your nerve zone “burns out”, you have low energy and lose your zeal for life. Lack of sleep, poor diet, not enough movement, and prolonged emotional stress can all wreak havoc on the nerve zone.

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause an unbalanced brain center causing a compromised nerve system. This imbalance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to, from, and throughout your nervous system creating a multitude of diseases and problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 3 can cause symptoms like…

Poor eyesight, balance issues, headaches and migraines, dizziness, poor sleep, low energy, unable to relax, nervousness, hearing loss, tingling in extremities, food and environmental allergies, indigestion, appendix problems, mood swings, male and female hormone imbalances, and infertility.

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 3 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 3 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Nerve Health:

  • Excellent balance
  • Strong mental acuity
  • Normal digestion and elimination
  • Normal sleep
  • Ability to relax and be energized
  • Normal sensory function; touch, taste, smell, hearing, sight
  • Ability to heal quickly
  • Normal emotional adaptation

Zone 4 – Digestive System

Z4Your body can be compared to a high-performance car. The cleaner and purer the fuel that is put in the better it runs. In order to use that fuel your body needs to break it down into the proper elements. The digestive system is responsible for breaking down food and turning it into usable energy and “building blocks” for your body.

The organs of the digestive system include the saliva glands, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and the intestines. When this system is unbalanced you can put the best organic food, “fuel” into your body, but it is unable to extract all the nutrients. Many people are malnourished because their body is unable to break down the food into the proper usable elements.

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause an unbalanced brain center causing a compromised digestive system. This imbalance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to the digestive system creating a multitude of diseases and problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 4 can cause symptoms like…

Excessive appetite, acid reflux, food allergies, GERD, liver problems, fatty liver, indigestion, jaundice, poor taste, heartburn, gallbladder issues, pancreas, Type 2 diabetes, weight gain, IBD irritable bowel syndrome.

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 4 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 4 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Digestive Health:

  • Normal weight
  • Normal bowel movements
  • Normal function of gall bladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, stomach
  • Normal digestion and assimilation of all foods
  • Normal blood sugar levels

Zone 5 – Muscular System

Z5This zone is responsible for keeping you upright and moving; its organs include 637+ muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, and bones. When working properly this zone replaces the muscle and skeletal cells every 7 years.

An unbalanced muscular zone can create acute or chronic muscle pain, stiff joints, asymmetrical muscles, atrophy and weak muscles, spasms. Accidents, falls, or any physical trauma can also negatively affect the muscular system. Emotionally, when you are angry or stressed the muscles in your body contract and causes fatigue in your whole body.

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause an unbalanced brain center causing a compromised muscular system. This imbalance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to, from, and throughout your muscular system creating a multitude of diseases and problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 3 can cause symptoms like…

Headaches, pain in the neck, back, arms, wrists, hands, hips, legs, feet, chest and also muscle weakness, loss of range of motion in joints.

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 5 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 5 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Muscular Health:

  • Normal feeling in all limbs
  • Strong muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and joints
  • Ability to move freely in all joints,
  • Great balance

Zone 6 – Circulatory System

Z6This zone includes the heart, arteries, veins, and the lymphatic system. These 60,000 miles of circulation pathways carry oxygen from the lungs to every single cell in the body. It brings nutrients from food that has been broken down and absorbed to produce energy. It also carries carbon dioxide and cellular waste to the lungs and kidneys for elimination.

The circulatory system also carries the hormones released by the glandular system. The lymphatic system is a filtering system collecting waste from the arteries and veins. Then the lymph nodes, full of white blood cells clean up debris and purify the lymph fluid which is then returned to the circulatory flow.

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause an unbalanced brain center causing a compromised circulatory system. This imbalance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to the circulatory system creating a multitude of diseases and problems.

An Unbalanced Zone 6 can cause symptoms like…

Thyroid conditions, blood pressure issues, heart problems, headaches/migraines, cold hands/feet, poor circulation.

Balancing the Zone…

Dr. Watson will perform a Zone 6 specific adjustment which balances the zone and then hand you a Zone 6 Slip which describes what you can expect from the adjustment.

As this Zone becomes more balanced you can expect…

…Perfect Digestive Health:

  • Normal thyroid function
  • Normal cardiovascular function
  • Normal lymphatic function
  • Normal heart and lung function
  • Excellent blood flow to all organs and tissues
