Zero Balancing is a unique achievement in body-mind therapy that bridges Eastern and Western healing philosophies. It can be defined as the art and skill of balancing and integrating both body energy and body structure through skillful touch. ZB assists clients to release held tensions and find balance and integration on all levels.
Zero Balancing was created in the 1970s by Dr. Fritz Smith, M.D. and Osteopathic Physician, Rolfer and Five-Element Acupuncturist. Dr. Smith has continued to develop ZB and oversees practitioner training still today.
Over the past decades Zero Balancing has been steadily growing as a recognized, cutting-edge, whole-person modality by health practitioners worldwide.
* Improves wellness by releasing underlying causes of stress and pain.
* Is simple yet powerful, it focuses on the whole person while addressing specific needs.
* Brings the body back to balance by releasing tension in the bones, joints, soft tissues and improving performance in our bodies' energy systems.
* Is integrative and cumulative. People report a continued growth of benefit when receiving Zero Balancing sessions regularly.
* Is a powerful body-mind therapy that is both deeply comfortable and invigorating to receive.
* Uses specific, gentle, finger pressure and skillfully held stretches or compressions, called fulcrums, that provide a point of stillness (a stationary point) around which body energy and body structure can reorganize. We simply stimulate the body to heal itself.
The ensuing result of Zero Balancing sessions is the release of held tension, restrictions and pain and the discovery of a new level of healthy integration, something we call "A New Higher Sense of Normal."
We at the McKay Center for Health and Healing have a ZB-Centric therapeutic approach. Zero Balancing amplifies, balances and integrates the benefits of other bodywork approaches that we use. We have a very powerful toolkit of modalities that allows us to address specific issues. Using Zero Balancing, we can then balance and integrate the specific work needed by each individual.
