Workshop Description:

ZERO BALANCING has been called “the most revolutionary development in bodywork today.”

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on bodywork system designed to align the body both energetically and structurally. Zero Balancing focuses on the whole person, while addressing specific needs - profoundly relieving pain, tension, and discomfort. Considered at the leading edge of body/mind therapies, ZB includes Western scientific approaches to body structure but unites them also with Eastern concepts of energy and healing.  This enables practitioners to work simultaneously with structure and energy.  Zero Balancing focuses on the musculo-skeletal system, with particular emphasis on the skeletal aspects: bones themselves, key joints, ligaments, and soft tissues that support us in the gravitational field and facilitate energy flow.

You can take this course as an individual workshop or as the first course in the new TLC Intensive Zero Balancing Certification Program.
