  • What is Zero Balancing?

  • It is a system of manual therapy combining gems of healing practices from East and West, developed in 1973 by Fritz Smith, MD. Our anatomical techniques have roots in osteopathy. Our energetic focus is informed by acupuncture.

  • What does Zero Balancing do?
  • Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life. Zero Balancing can also be helpful with specific goals such as relief from back pain, improving concentration or sleep, releasing unwanted stress, eliminating old behavior patterns, or boosting well-being. Zero Balancing works in conjunction with medical therapy and is not a substitute for it.

  • How is Zero Balancing done?
  • A ZB session begins with a discussion of your current state of health and goals for your Zero Balancing treatment. Goals may range from reducing tension or discomfort in a particular area to improving energy level to helping with sleep issues or stress relief. You will first sit and then lie on your back, fully clothed, on the massage table. I will assess your body for tension, particularly tension held in the bones and joints. Then I will place gentle finger pressure or traction called fulcrums into areas around the spine, ribs, hips, feet and neck to support the body, allowing it to deeply relax and release held tension in these areas. Zero Balancing enables your own energy to flow in stronger, clearer ways – helping you to feel more like yourself and more at home in your body.

  • Who needs Zero Balancing?

People seek Zero Balancing when their lives are hectic, if old injuries keep them from moving freely and to slow down and connect with themselves in a deep way. Children, teens, adults and seniors can all benefit.
