Zero Balancing is a hand on, noninvasive treatment that focuses on the relationship of the physical structure of the body to that of the energy fields within the body. It provides a holistic therapy of the mind and body that increases your vitality and health on all levels. The mind and the body’s energies are used as a tool working for the structure of the body’s health and well being.
It was developed in 1973 by Dr. Fritz Smith who was an acupuncturist and an osteopath. The practice is designed to align the body’s energies within its physical structure to promote health, wholeness and the well being of each individual. Designed to work in tandem with routine healthcare, Zero Balancing quiets the mind, organizes the energy field and creates an internal reorientation.
It is believed that by applying gentle pressure to the foundation joints the energy fields in the mind and body are stronger and clearer. This provides a balanced energy in the skeletal system and enables you to function with a deeper, clearer and harmonic personal strength. When the energy and structure are balanced it is said that past emotional patterns, affects of past traumas and dysfunctional habits are released.
The treatment usually takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes and you do not have to remove your clothing. You begin in a seated position and progress to a comfortable reclined position. The ZB therapist evaluates your energy fields and flows using a very gentle touch. The practitioner identifies disturbed or blocked energy and balances the structures as necessary. The focus of the therapists’ attention may be on the spirit, mind or body, or all three at the same time. Particular attention is given to the skeleton as deepest and strongest energy currents are located there.
The desired effect of a zero balancing session is to alleviate both mental and physical symptoms. It is meant to improve your ability to more effectively deal with the stresses in your life. Creating clear strong fields of energy in the body and mind to promote organization of these fields and provide a sense of well being and completeness within you. After a treatment you are able to function more efficient, are more comfortable and relaxed, you are better able to cope with stressors and enjoy a greater health. Some people have reported that they feel the tension melt away and feel an expanded awareness after a session.
