Workshop Description:

 The basic trilogy of Zero Balancing is Core ZB, Alchemy of Touch, and Geometry of Healing. In the Core program we teach the underpinnings of ZB, including the use of energy as a working tool. In Alchemy of Touch we teach how to amplify vibration in the body and how to work in high-energy fields. In Geometry of Healing we teach how to slow vibration and work with elements within the field itself and within the gap.

The focus of this year’s workshop is how to create and navigate higher energy fields and then put them to healing advantage for the client. One metaphor regarding Alchemy of Touch is that of cooking. When we turn up the heat in cooking, change begins to happen; when we put a lid on the pot, change becomes faster; when we lock down the lid and create a pressure cooker, things happen even faster. So it is in the body when, through touch, we create these different levels of energy, change not only happens faster in the body but also old resistant imprints may lessen and deep healings occur.

This program is apropos for any person who has completed Core ZB. In the course of empowering known fulcrums and presenting new ones, there is always some review of the basic foundational fulcrums. Everybody wins – your core ZB’s will improve as you sharpen your basic skills, and new possibilities will open as you learn how to create and navigate amplified fields of energy. The hidden gems you will discover and the transformation of your work will surprise even those of you who already do Alchemy of Touch.

About the Instructor:


Jamie Carmody, LMT

After completing a BA at the University of Texas at Austin and several years of travel, including three years living in Spain, I began my massage career in 1994. In 1999, I took my first Zero Balancing Core class and knew that Zero Balancing was for me! Since then, the bulk of my study has been focused on Zero Balancing with Dr. Fritz Smith, Zero Balancing’s founder. I became certified in 2002. I now proudly and enthusiastically form part of the Zero Balancing faculty and look forward to bringing ZB more fully into the lives of my clients and the greater community.
