*Zero Balancing I is a prerequisite
ZERO BALANCING has been called “the most revolutionary development in bodywork today.”
Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on bodywork system which 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 musculo-skeletal system – particularly releasing tension and held energy from the bones, ligaments and their associated soft tissues.
Zero Balancing II gives students the ability to provide their clients with the complete Zero Balancing protocol. It is the only Zero Balancing course teaching the complete protocol. Its prerequisite is Zero Balancing I (25 previous hours of ZB study).
ZB II Participants learn special new fulcrums for the ilium and gluteal muscles, the iliotibial band, peroneus longus, and gall bladder meridian; new fulcrums for the tarsal bones and the feet; special fulcrums for the suboccipital muscles, the neck and thorax.
You will also learn more about “framing” – how to individualize sessions based on the unique structural and energetic needs of each client.
ZB II Participants will review and gain far greater skill with all the basic ZB fulcrums and greater fluency with the protocol.
With ZB II, participants will have completed 50 of the 100 hours of coursework required for Zero Balancing certification.
