What is the Zona Plus?
The Zona Plus is a high-tech, software-controlled device that guides you through a patented handgrip therapy personalized to your unique physiology. This patented therapy is clinically proven to lower blood pressure in most people in as little as 4 to 8 weeks. The Zona Plus makes it safe and easy to perform this handgrip therapy in the comfort of your own home and see dramatic results in a relatively short amount of time.
How long does a session take and what do I need to do?
Each Zona Plus session takes just 12 minutes. You begin by squeezing the handgrip area of the device as hard as you can with your right hand, followed by your left hand as prompted. This allows the Zona Plus to customize the therapy to your personal grip strength each time, as it will vary from day to day. The device then prompts you to squeeze your right hand for two minutes, followed by your left hand for two minutes. After a one-minute break, the same sequence is repeated. All you have to do is follow the instructions on the screen. Once you’ve completed the session, the Zona Plus displays your results, giving you real-time feedback. If you like, you can then plug the device into your computer and take advantage of a complete set of online tracking tools and software to monitor your progress.
How soon will I see a difference in my blood pressure?
Just like with any therapy, the more consistent you are in doing it, the sooner you’ll see results—and the better those results will be. Most Zona Plus users see noticeable results within 6 to 8 weeks when they use the device as recommended, but results may vary. Some users see results in as little as 4 weeks, while for others it may take up to 12 weeks. You may not see any change for a few weeks, but then over a couple of days see your blood pressure begin to decrease. The key is to stick with this therapy and give your body time to adjust to it. The results are well worth it!
Can more than one person use the same Zona Plus?
Yes! Up to two people can use the same Zona Plus. The device calibrates itself at the beginning of each session to ensure it is optimized for each user. In fact, each Zona Plus comes with two free MyZonaHealth lifetime memberships that provide unlimited access to exclusive online software tools. These tools allow you to track and monitor your progress and, should you choose to do so, share your results directly with your physician.
Do I have to perform the maximum squeeze each time I’m prompted to do so during a Zona Plus session?
Yes. In order to be effective, you must squeeze the handgrip area of the device as hard as you can for 1-2 seconds each time you do a session so the therapy can be personalized for you. If your current grip strength is fairly weak, the Zona Plus can still work for you. The device adapts to YOUR personal strength level to give you the maximum effects. Over time, you’ll likely see your grip strength improve with continued use and the exercise will become even easier to do.
How often should I use the Zona Plus? Can I use it more than once a day?
For best results, we recommend you use your Zona Plus just once a day, 5 days a week. Each 12-minute session is perfectly calibrated to give you maximum results. Testing has shown that doing any additional sessions will not significantly increase the results you enjoy. If you miss two sessions within a week, or an entire week within a 12-week period, you’re still doing fine. Missing more sessions may reduce the results you’re able to achieve.
What happens if I miss a session?
If you miss a session, simply get back on track with your Zona Plus the next day. The most important thing to remember is to aim to perform five 12-minute sessions a week to enjoy the best results.
How much can I expect my blood pressure to go down by using the Zona Plus?
Since each person’s starting point and body are different, results will vary from person to person. However, if used as directed, the Zona Plus therapy can produce an average drop of about 15 points systolic and 10 points diastolic. Typically, the higher your blood pressure is, the greater the drop will be. Because the Zona Plus guides you through a patented handgrip therapy that’s personalized to your unique physiology, the reduction in blood pressure it produces can be as much as ten times greater than what you may see with other types of handgrip therapy. In fact, one recent study that appeared in the Journal of Hypertension found that participants who performed this type of guided handgrip therapy dropped their blood pressure by an average of 13.7 points in just six weeks!
Who can use the Zona Plus?
Just about anyone of any age or strength level can use the Zona Plus and get good results. The Zona Plus is easy to use since it guides you through each session step by step, and is personalized to your individual grip strength at the start of each session. However, if your physician has advised you to avoid any physical exercise, then the Zona Plus isn’t for you.
Does the Zona Plus have any side effects?
The Zona Plus is a natural, medication-free therapy with zero known negative side effects. Keep in mind, this device helps guide you through 12 minutes of handgrip squeezes, so you may feel a slight soreness in your forearms when you first start using it. This is just your body getting used to the therapy and a sign that it’s beginning to work for you.
How does the Zona Plus help lower my blood pressure?
Research suggests the Zona Plus therapy triggers positive physiological changes in your body that naturally lower blood pressure. Regular use increases the diameter of your arteries, makes your arteries more flexible, and improves “resistance vessels” — where the arteries and veins connect. Over time, doing the Zona Plus therapy regularly remodels your arteries and improves your body’s circulatory function. It also changes endothelial dysfunction, a key cause of high blood pressure, and boosts nitric oxide production. The therapy also improves Vagal Tone (your body’s “fight or flight” response) and improves vascular function by 225%.
Will the Zona Plus lower my blood pressure too much?
We have never seen a case where someone’s blood pressure dropped too much just from using the Zona Plus. That’s because each session is personalized to your individual physiology. If you are currently on medication to lower your blood pressure, please consult with your doctor if you feel you are at risk for lowering your blood pressure too much.
Are the effects of the Zona Plus permanent?
As with any type of therapy, the benefits of the Zona Plus are sustained with continued use. The effects will slowly disappear if you discontinue use.
Do doctors approve of the Zona Plus therapy?
Many doctors who are familiar with the Zona Plus use it themselves as well as recommend it to patients to control blood pressure, without medications. Zona Plus has been proven effective in clinical studies and produced thousands of happy customers and doctors all over the world.
Is the Zona Plus FDA-approved?
The Zona Plus is in a category of medical devices that do not require FDA approval. The Zona Plus does have to be listed by the FDA for quality control purposes, and this listing is current.
Can I use the Zona Plus if I have an aneurysm, mitral valve problem, or any other heart/ serious medical condition?
We have not seen any side effects with the use of the Zona Plus, but as always, we want you to be safe. The best person to ask would be your doctor since the answer depends on your particular health situation.
Do I need a computer to use the Zona Plus?
No. You can still get the same blood pressure-lowering results with the Zona Plus without transferring your data to a computer. You’re able to store data for up to 12 weeks within the device, so you can chart your progress manually. However, with the purchase of your Zona Plus Series 3, you are automatically eligible for two lifetime subscriptions for MyZonaHealth accounts. In your private online MyZonaHealth account, you can upload your therapy session data into the secure server on the Zona website to easily track your progress, and share your progress with your doctor.
How long will the Zona Plus device last?
The Zona Plus is a high-quality, scientifically engineered device that is built to last, even with regular use. In fact, it’s been shown to last for more than 10 years. This latest Zona Plus model (Series 3) is built with the same quality standards, so you can rest assured you can continue to enjoy its benefits for a very long time, starting today!

Shipping & Purchasing
What is the money-back guarantee and how do I return my Zona Plus if I’m not satisfied?
The vast majority of Zona Plus users are very satisfied with the results they’ve seen when they use the device as recommended. It’s why we ask that you first use your Zona Plus for 90 days as directed to give it a chance to work for you. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied at the end of your 90-day in-home trial, you can return the Zona Plus for a full refund, less return shipping. Simply call toll-free 1-866-669-9662 for complete return instructions. If you prefer, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and someone will reach out to you within one business day.
Is there a warranty with the Zona Plus?
Your Zona Plus is also covered by a one-year full warranty. This warranty covers any mechanical or electrical defects that may occur. We will fix or replace your Zona Plus at no charge to you. (If anything happens after the first year, we can usually repair it for a small fee).
Will my insurance/Medicare/Medicaid pay for the Zona Plus?
Currently most Insurance companies or Medicare plans do not cover the cost of the Zona Plus. It’s possible your HSA or FSA plan will reimburse you, but it’s best to contact them directly. However, if you can control your blood pressure now, you may be able to save money and avoid unwanted side effects. For example, the average cost of blood pressure drugs runs about $93 a month…or $1,116 a year! So it’s possible the Zona Plus could pay for itself in just months.
Are payments plans available?
While we do not offer payment plans at this time, payment in full is accepted by all major credit cards and PayPal accounts.
Can you ship my Zona Plus to me if I live outside the U.S.?
Yes. We can ship to select countries. International shipping charges are automatically calculated by our system at time of purchase.
How long will it take to receive my Zona Plus?
Your Zona Plus will arrive within 7-10 business days via FedEx Ground (sometimes sooner). FedEx Express Saver and FedEx 2-day are also available for an additional charge. Signature service is also available.
What comes in the box when I order the Zona Plus?
Your package will include the Zona Plus Series 3 with rechargeable battery, carrying case, charging adapter, USB cable, Quick Start Guide, Zona Health Therapy software, and 2 lifetime memberships to MyZonaHealth.
Is the Zona Plus similar to the RESPERATE product?
No, based upon clinical research the Zona Plus™ is much more effective at lowering blood pressure. The independent British Hypertension Society recently reviewed RESPeRATE's studies and published this alert: In the opinion of the BHS, such small effects over very short durations of time do not provide sufficient evidence for this equipment to be recommended. Here are a few sources to consider:
Source 1, Source 2 and Source 3.
Can’t I squeeze a ball or handgrip to get the same results? Or do aerobic exercise?
No. Definitely not. Even though aerobic exercise is absolutely a way to keep you healthy, the Zona Plus therapy is not just about squeezing or exercising. It is about squeezing at a precise amount of pressure for a precise amount of time. The device is computer monitored using complicated algorithms and gives you real-time feedback to make sure you are doing a safe and very specific exercise, which is optimized for your physiology. It has taken MANY years of research to find these exact parameters, which cannot be duplicated without the device. In fact, it is up to 4 times more effective at lowering blood pressure than 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise 3 times a week.
Previous Models (Series 2)
Why does the device turn off before my session is over? (Series 2 Only)
The Series 2 device will shut off automatically after 60 seconds of without use. Also, check the batteries; they may need to be replaced after a few months of use. If it is still continuing to shut off, please contact email@example.com with your contact information and a brief description. A specialist will reach out to you to help troubleshoot your device.
When the green On/Off button is pressed, why does the display flash the low battery symbol and then turn off? (Series 2 only)
Replace the battery (see Preparing the Zona Plus™ for Use in the "Zona Plus™ Series 2 User's Guide.")
Why doesn't the device turn on when I press the on button? (Series 2 only)
Make sure you are holding the button for at least 3 seconds. Check that the battery is correctly installed in the device and that the battery housing is closed. After 4-6 months use, you may need to replace the battery.
Why has the device stopped responding? (Series 2 only)
The battery housing may be loose. Make sure the battery housing is secure and firmly in place (see Preparing the Zona Plus™ for Use in the "Zona Plus™ Series 2 User's Guide.")
Why do I not see the 4-character registration code with I plug my Zona device into my computer?
Typically if you plug the Zona Plus device into your computer for the first time and do not get the 4-character registration code, it is because you have not yet installed the Zona software or that the Zona software is not currently running on your computer. If you are using a PC running Windows, the System Tray will have the Zona icon visible if the Zona software is currently running. This icon is a green sphere with a heartbeat symbol in the center. If you see the icon, verify that the software is still running by placing your mouse cursor over the icon. You should see "Zona" and the version you have installed. If the icon disappears, it means that it has quit running and you might have an issue with your installation.
If you do not see the Zona icon, verify that you have actually installed the software. The default install location is c:\program files (x86)\Zona\ZonaTherapy. On Apple computers the software installs as ZonaPlus in the Applications folder.
Why does my Zona Plus 3.0 display "syncing..." at the end of each therapy?
The Zona device is looking for a valid Bluetooth LTE connection to the Zona server. This is a feature that is not yet supported but will allow for synchronizing with the secure Zona server via a Bluetooth LTE connection instead of using the USB cable.
Why does my screen go dark when I click some buttons in the "My Therapy" zone on the Zona Health website?
The functionality used to place a new form over the parent form is not supported in Internet Explorer version 8 and older. The solution is to use a browser such as Chrome or Firefox or upgrade your Internet Explorer browser to version 9 or later.
What operating systems does the Zona Therapy Software work on?
Windows 7, 8, and 10.
MAC with OS version 10.12.1
Why does the data upload not work for my Mac?
Check that you are running OS X 10.12 or later. Apple no longer supports earlier versions of the operating system.
What happens if my battery stops working/charging? Or if I’m having issues with my device?
Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with all your contact information and a detailed description of what is happening with your device, and a specialist will reach out within one business day.
