"I would like to see all our principles incorporated into healthcare, starting with an acceptance that energy is real and a vital part of health ... I would also like to see people understand that health is an actualization of potential and not just an absence of symptoms."

"I would like to see all our principles incorporated into healthcare, starting with an acceptance that energy is real and a vital part of health ... I would also like to see people understand that health is an actualization of potential and not just an absence of symptoms."

Zero Balancing is a form of bodywork that combines aspects of yoga, meditation and structural acupressure.

It is carried out with the person lying on his or her back.  A short discussion takes place before the session to make sure there are no precautions or contraindications. Other than that, the main purpose of talking is to engage the person with their own experience of their body; to mention any past injury - especially to bone - as well as any current complaint or restriction; and to put the session in the context of their current situation in life/work/relationships. It is a matter of discretion on either side how much 'personal stuff' is mentioned - and you don't have to say much at all.

During the session however it is not necessary or usual to talk. This allows a person to more deeply feel their body sensations at the places of contact, as well as letting the mind enter a state of expanded awareness, anchored by a steady respectful touch. Zero Balancing promotes a deep state of relaxation and it is common for people to feel refreshingly rested and revitalized afterwards.

 

Many people develop a more positive outlook after ZB, and go on to make major life changes.
