Created by Fritz Smith, MD, osteopath and acupuncturist, Zero Balancing is at the leading edge of current body/mind therapies and can be described as "acupressure to the bones."
Zero Balancing goes beyond the Western medical concept of body structure by incorporating an Eastern understanding of energy and healing. It enables the practitioner to work simultaneously with the structure and energy of the bones to help return balance to the whole system.
In a Zero Balancing session your bones, and therefore your full body, are attended to from head-to-toe. It is received through clothing and the pressure used is often described as a "feel good" compression - not too much and not too light either. It is definitely not an "adjustment."
At the end of the session clients feel calm, "worked on," and more at ease with emotional and physical challenges that come their way. Other benefits include a quiet mind, less muscle tension and pain, reduced anxiety, and more joy!
Zero Balancing can be thought of as a sort of nervous system "detox." This is great therapy for those who want to seriously relax from stress in their life and begin to change the way their body responds to stress.
Nearly everyone can benefit from Zero Balancing - it is ideal for addressing a wide range of conditions as well as promoting and enhancing already existing wellness. The process is designed to be complementary with all other modalities, including primary healthcare.
Zero Balancing is a holistic therapy that empowers the recipient to manifest wellness. By integrating the body, mind and spirit to promote optimal functioning, ZB can prove valuable in maintaining and enhancing wellness even in the hectic pursuit of daily life.
