About the Workshop:


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

The course "Zero Balancing II" is the only Zero Balancing course that teaches the entire ZB protocol.  It builds on, and requires as pre-requisite, "Zero Balancing I."  Together ZB I and II constitute the "Core Program" and half of the course requirements for certification in Zero Balancing.

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on bodywork system that aligns energy and structure. Simple, yet powerful, it focuses on the whole person, while superbly addressing specific needs and symptoms. Considered at the leading edge of body/mind therapies, ZB integrates Western scientific approaches to body structure with Eastern concepts of energy and healing.  Zero Balancing focuses on the balance of energy and structure within the musculoskeletal system – particularly releasing tension and held energy from the bones, ligaments, and their associated soft tissues.

Zero Balancing II Participants learn special new fulcrums for the ilium and gluteal muscles, the iliotibial band, and gall bladder meridian; new work for the tarsal bones and foot; special fulcrums for the suboccipital muscles, neck, and thorax.

You can take this course as an individual workshop or, if enrolled, as part of TLC’s new TLC Intensive Zero Balancing Certification Program(pre-requisite ZB I).

In this workshop, we also explore "framing" - learning how to individualize sessions based on the unique structural and energetic needs of each client.  Participants will also review and gain far greater skill with all the basic ZB fulcrums, gaining greater fluency with the entire protocol.

Benefits of Zero Balancing may include:

  • Resolution of musculoskeletal pain and tension not responding fully to soft tissue work
  • Enhanced postural alignment
  • Heightened  sense of connection, peace, balance, and harmony
  • Helping release "tissue-held" memory
  • Centering oneself
  • Reducing stress and promoting better flow of energy in our bodies
  • Relieving problems arising from excessively stimulated sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight)
  • Heightened sense of spiritual and emotional wellness - easing anxiety, chronic anger, depression, etc.
  • Specific benefits from techniques addressing pain in the back, hips, feet, torso, shoulders, arms, neck, and head
