What is Zero Balancing?
Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on, body-mind therapy designed to enhance health by balancing body energy with body structure. Developed in the 1970s by Fritz Smith, MD, a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, ZB combines the Western view of medicine and science with the Eastern view of energy and healing. During an individualized treatment session, the therapist uses comfortable finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize.
Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body, ZB helps to clear blocked body energy flow. ZB amplifies vitality and promotes better postural alignment, mobility and balance. A Zero Balancing session often leaves you feeling with an amplified sense of health and vitality on all levels.
How Can Zero Balancing Help You?
Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life. Zero Balancing can also be helpful with specific goals such as relief from back pain, increasing joint range of motion, improving concentration or sleep, releasing unwanted stress, eliminating old behavior patterns, or boosting well being. Zero Balancing works in conjunction with medical therapy and is not a substitute for it.
Increased feeling of health and well-being
Zero Balancing induces a state of deep rest that allows you to feel truly relaxed and renewed, helping you to feel more vital and alive.
Decreased stress and improved flow of energy in your body
Zero Balancing helps to free the flow of energy in the musculoskeletal system to help relieve stress and boost your body’s natural energy.
Reduced pain and discomfort
Blocks in the body’s energy often lead to imbalance, discomfort and pain. Zero Balancing helps open stuck areas that are the body’s natural shock absorbers: the tarsal bones in the arches of the feet, the joints where the ribs meet the spine, the neck, the hips and the sacrum. Once these areas can move more freely, pain can release.
Enhanced stability, balance and postural alignment
Zero Balancing helps to create a wonderful feeling of inner and outer balance, alignment and organization. When your body is clear and balanced and your posture is aligned, you can move with freedom.
Increased sense of connection, peace, and happiness
Zero Balancing often brings a sense of expansiveness, peace and contentment.
Decreased mental, emotional and physical tension
Zero Balancing works on multiple levels to release tissue-held memory and tension patterns that may be affecting your mental, emotional and physical states.
Support through transitions and transformations
Zero Balancing supports positive changes in behavior or attitude by giving you the chance to state your personal goals for change, which sets the intention for your treatment. With the therapist’s attention and touch, energy is realigned so that old patterns can drop away and resistance to change subsides.
Improved quality of life and increased capacity for enjoyment
Zero Balancing helps us to feel better equipped to handle daily pressures. Many people receiving Zero Balancing find themselves more joyful and satisfied in both personal and work relationships.
