Zero Balancing (ZB)

Zero Balancing is a gentle, yet powerful, hands-on method of balancing body energy with body structure. Using finger pressure and held stretches, it invites the release of tension accumulated in the deep structures of the body. The specific quality of touch enables physical structure and energy to be engaged simultaneously, whilst establishing a clear interface between the practitioner and the client in which boundaries of touch and communication are distinct and non-intrusive

How does Zero Balancing work?

ZB focuses on groups of joints that are involved with the smooth transmission of forces through the skeleton. This improves the function of these joints, hence promoting optimum balance and encouraging natural re-alignment and improved posture. Body pain usually occurs in areas where energy flow is blocked. ZB restores energy flow thus removing the cause of pain and improving body awareness.

What happens during a ZB session?

ZB is a hands-on bodywork. It is done with the client clothed and lying on his/her back. A short health history will be taken before the session starts. A session may take anywhere between twenty and forty minutes. It is often recommended that a person has three weekly sessions to begin with, and then decides with their practitioner what frequency would best serve them.

After a zero balancing session people often feel relaxed and invigorated. ZB generates an active and conscious state of wellbeing, producing a deep sense of physical and emotional unity.
