The Zone Technique in Albany

Chiropractic Albany OR Zone Technique Graphic

The Zone Technique is a chiropractic healing method originally created by Dr. Thurman Fleet in 1931 in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Fleet originally called it Zone Therapy. After learning this method of healing in 1993 and refining it over the next two decades, Dr. Peter Goldman of San Francisco, California created his own version. He named it Zone Technique.

"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."

- Dr. Fleet


According to Dr. Fleet, the human brain is composed of six centers. They are: Glandular, Eliminative, Nervous, Digestive, Musculoskeletal, and Circulatory.

Because the body may be properly classified as an ELECTRICAL MACHINE, these six 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 the normal function of the entire center due to the effect of emotional, physical, or chemical stress.

As a Mastermind Certified Zone Doctor, Dr. Brown examines the patient to determine which of the brain centers are not in harmony with the systems they control. This is done by him feeling specific points on the patient'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, he stimulates specific points in the spinal cord.

Stimulation of the proper points by Dr. Brown, 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.


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 chiropractic is all about. For this reason, Dr. Brown primarily focuses on restoring law and order within the body by balancing the zones. We have seen a variety of positive results that have greatly improved patient's quality of life. By restoring communication to the six zones of the body, patients are finding that lifelong issues are diminishing.

The Zone technique doesn't focus solely on correcting misaligned vertebrae, but eliminates resistance within the body to be self healing. We are seeing people come in for back pain, but leave with improved focus, balance, reduced anxiety, and a more positive outlook on life among other things.
