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 energy body and the physical structure. 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 moves beyond exclusively Western scientific approaches to body structure by also incorporating Eastern concepts of energy and healing.  This enables practitioners to work simultaneously with the structural and energy bodies.  Zero Balancing focuses on the musculo-skeletal system, with particular emphasis on key joints, ligaments, and soft tissues that support us in the gravitational field and facilitate energy transmission.
