At the leading edge of integrative body/mind therapies, Zero Balancing (ZB) is a unique, hands-on, bodywork system of healing. It bridges Western medical and scientific practices from the field of osteopathy with Eastern concepts of energy and healing from the field of acupuncture. ZB aligns the client’s energy body with their physical structure bringing benefit to both client and practitioner across the full spectrum of body/mind/spirit and strongly supports wellness and self-actualization.
Zero Balancing promotes an expansive meditative state in both practitioner and client that is grounded in the body. Clients often experience greater self-awareness and insight into their personal health and well-being while symptoms of pain, stiffness, postural strain, stress, and trauma-related tension improve. Side effects may include peace, happiness, clarity, transcendence, and personal growth as ZB provides a foundation for health and happiness, and brings a person closer to his or her essential nature. Clients often say ZB brings them home to themselves.
“After a single ZB I was able to move my joints without any stiffness or discomfort. I felt more relaxed, limber and calmer than I’d felt in months.” Joshua Kiok, MD
The Core Zero Balancing program is a 50-hour program taught in two 25-hour segments, ZB 1 and ZB 2, separated by a period of practical experience. Each course is 4 days in length and offers 25 CEU hours for Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Nurses, and Acupuncturists.
Course attendees learn to engage, evaluate, and balance the deepest currents of movement through bones, joints, ligaments, and other body structures. Through touch practitioners learn to access and experience the body’s consciousness--the organizing principle that coordinates the physical body and the energy body into one functioning whole. ZB offers the opportunity to address imbalances in energy fields that may precede pathology and illness. Upon completion of the class, practitioners will have gained the basic skills needed to immediately begin to practice full Zero Balancing sessions as an adjunct therapy to their established work.
