Apani academy

This UFZA approved certification program was designed to help teach you how to discover the imbalances, core issues and struggles in our lives.  When we understand that we are more than a physical body – we are spiritual, emotional and mental beings with a wonderful atmosphere around us called the Aura – it becomes easier to find the imbalances that need shifting.  

I've taken my 18 years of experience and knowledge and put together a comprehensive curriculum that will take you to the master level of the footzoning technique.

Our Amazing Instructors

Caralee Skola
My name is Caralie Skola.  Most of my friends and family call me Cara, but I am comfy with either. Many of you still know me Cara Cash, and that’s ok.  I spent a decade identified by that name and still answer to it.  ☺ 

 I am a wife to my amazing and supportive husband, Chad and a mother to 5 brilliant children who teach me all the good stuff. I was born and raised in Utah and have never migrated too far.  Because of that, I crave meeting new people, diversity and ideas that make my thinking stretch. 

 I am owner of Apani Academy of Footzoning and Balanced Health.  I have been footzoning for 18 years and teaching/instructing for 14 of those years.  I am also a Medicine Woman for a local chapter of the Nez Perce Native American tribe. 

I have extensive training in aromatherapy, essential oils, holistic healing, Metaphysical Anatomy, herbs, homeopathics and nutrition.

I first discovered the footzoning modality in a desperate attempt to help my own daughter heal from her congenital kidney disorder.  It was one of those things where I felt completely led by the Divine to find answers and relief.  Our experience with her miraculous healing changed the way our entire family views health and healing, our diet, the environment and how to overcome dis-ease. 

I received my original training in footzoning from The Nordblom Institute.  Since then, it has been a non-stop journey of learning and discovering and remembering.I find joy and fulfillment in helping both by clients and students on their own health journey. 

I love standing as a witness as they discover their innate gifts and uncover the truth about themselves.  Empowerment is irresistible.  Those that I work with often become part of my friendship circle.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ.  He is my master healer and I delight in watching for evidence of his hand working in my life.  I have a deep faith in God and the perfect love that is available to me. 
Valleen Day
My name is Valleen Day- some people call me Val.  I answer to both!

I am a wife and mother of three. I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend and biggest supporter- my husband, Frank. I was born in Arizona and raised in northern Utah.

I am a fourth year foot zoner- I learned from Cara after being a client for a couple of years. This is my first year as a teacher and am so lucky to be a part of Apani Academy of Footzoning and Balanced Health.

I have a passion for learning about anything surrounding natural and holistic healing. My expertise is in essential oils, crystals, and emotional & metaphysical healing. I work with a lot of clients who have suffered trauma in their lives- including abuse, addiction, and ptsd. I love helping people uncover the emotional side of their physical ailments and helping them work through both so they feel whole again.

I discovered foot zoning for myself when I felt I had physically hit a point in my life that I couldn’t move forward without feeling better. I was using prescription medications to facilitate every bodily function- being alert, sleeping, digesting, anxiety... you name it. I knew there had to be another way. Through zoning, I was able to wean off all of my medication and get my body functioning properly on its own. Through my personal experience with zoning and beyond as I’ve become a practitioner, I have been able to learn so many beautiful and natural ways to heal my body. It’s been a trie blessing to not just myself, but my family, friends, and the people who become my clients.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, journaling, being outdoors, watching my son play sports, baking, and spending time with family and friends.

Working with Cara as a client over the years and student in her courses have been transformative experiences. The benefits I have experienced are impactful physical improvements, mental and emotional breakthroughs and enhanced confidence as a practitioner! With her years of not just practicing Foot and Face Zoning but also instructing and mentoring students her wealth and depth of knowledge is invaluable. Cara knows what works. She doesn’t waste time and takes you where you are and leads you to where you want to be. Cara offers simple action steps, services and education that will greatly improve your quality of life! Hands down best practitioner and educator in the state of Utah.

“Cara is exceptionally intuitive and gifted. She was able to help my daughter get to the root cause of her digestive illness and assist with natural healing. I was so amazed by the power of footzoning, I enrolled in her classes to learn this skill for myself. It has been an extremely empowering tool to help keep me and my family healthy. Worth the investment. Thank you Cara!”
Shaylnn T.
“ I have been seeing Cara for years now for footzoning. She is the first one I turn to when I just feel “off”. I always know that I will leave a session feeling better after being zoned. She is so in tune with my energy and very knowledgeable of mind, body and spirit. I recommend her to everyone and am so grateful I found her when I did. She truly helps me survive in so many ways.”
Amber T.
“From the first day I met Cara I knew she had a gift.  That was 14 years ago. I went in search of a healthier way to take care of me and my family. No quick fix prescriptions or surgeries. My kids and I have been going to Cara monthly since then. They very rarely get sick! She is such a kind and loving soul that really cares about people. I didn’t just get a new healthcare professional but a wonderful friend who takes care of my family. I’m so grateful she is part of our lives.”
Kimberly W.
“ My son kept getting high fevers randomly and I couldn’t figure it out. He missed a lot of school because of this. I took him to Cara and we used her knowledge and zoning to figure it out and he hasn’t had any more fevers since. We absolutely love Cara.”
Brandi H.
“I just wanted to let you know that zoning is absolutely amazing! After my appointment on Friday and you working on my optic nerve, especially my left eye, the cloudy blur that I’ve had in the middle of my eye for well over a year and a half is gone.  I have more vision in that eye than I’ve had in a very long time.  So, I am thankful for you and your help.  I plan to continue to work on the things you told me to every night.  The spark of hope that you gave me after our last visit is something I can never thank you enough for.  You have blessed me and my family so much over the years, so thank you!”
Shelia W.
“I had the worst migraine that lasted for 4 days. My neighbor told me about Cara and the footzoning technique. I was desperate to try it.  Headaches are something that have plagued me for most of my life. The session with her wasn’t even over yet and my headache had already disappeared. She helped me to identify what the probable cause of my headaches are and I have found much relief.”

Legend of The Apani

In the Native American culture, the butterfly is a symbol of hope from an ancestor.  It is common practice to tattoo themselves or engrave butterflies on baby cradles to help the infant sleep.  Some even perform “apani dances” in their tribal dance routines.  The legend goes that God took all his favorite colors and put them in a bag. He gave the bag to the children to open, and out flew all these gorgeous colored butterflies!  The children were delighted.  The butterflies had a voice and sang beautifully, but the birds got jealous and reminded God that he had promised them the birdsong.  So, God kept his promise and removed their voice.I chose to name this program Apani to represent the beautiful symbol of hope, balance, symmetry and reminder that there is always a way to show our true colors and transform ourselves back to vibrant health.
