Zero Balancing

What is Zero Balancing ?

Zero Balancing is a powerful, hands-on method of balancing body energy with its structural components. It is a technique developed by Dr. Fritz Smith - an osteopath, acupuncturist and physician - in the 1970's. Dr Smith published a book describing his methods ('Inner Bridges').

Zero Balancing uses finger pressure and held stretches, inviting the release of tension that may have accumulated deep in the body. The quality of the touch enables harmonisation between the energy and the physical.

    What happens in a Zero balancing session ?

    Zero Balancing is hands-on bodywork. Clients remain fully clothed and lie on their backs during the session, which may last around 40 minutes. The practitioner and client talk briefly together before starting the session to ensure that the work is both safe and appropriate for the client. The Zero Balancer follows a protocol that starts with the lower back, legs and feet, and moves to the upper body and head before returning to the feet. Around this protocol, the work is tailored to each individual's needs at that particular time. The touch is clear and distinctive and should feel good to the receiver at all times.

    People respond to Zero Balancing sessions in different ways and every session is unique. It is common for the client to feel generally relaxed and refreshed after a session but it may take up to three sessions before specific changes become apparent. Receiver and practitioner can then decide together on the frequency of any subsequent sessions.

    Some people like to use Zero Balancing as a regular support to their life, helping them to reach and maintain a higher level of functioning, whilst others choose to have occasional sessions as and when they feel the need.
