Zero Balancing I is a prerequisite.
**THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW CLOSED. WALK IN REGISTRATION IS STILL AVAILABLE.**
ZERO BALANCING has been called “the most revolutionary development in bodywork today.”
Hear more about Zero Balancing from Fritz Smith, MD
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 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 will learn special new fulcrums for the ilium and gluteal muscles, the iliotibial band and gall bladder meridian; new work for the tarsal bones and foot; special fulcrums for the suboccipital muscles, neck and thorax.
We will also explore framing – learning how to individualize sessions based on the unique structural and energetic needs of each client.
Participants will also 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 half the coursework required for Zero Balancing certification.
