Zero Balancing: Level I

(25 Hours)

​Discounted prices!

This course is through the Zero Balancing Health Association and taught by a fully credentialed ZB instructor.  Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, ZB is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body.  Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize.

ZB focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement.  By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, ZB helps to clear blocks in the body's energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment.  A ZB session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization.

ZB I teaches you the basic protocol of Zero Balancing.  Here you will learn an interface touch which will facilitate deep and profound work with ease and can be used with any modality.  ZB is an enjoyable and excellent stand alone therapy and can complement and help integrate any work you do.  It is is easy to incorporate into other modalities, including massage, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and craniosacral therapy, allowing you to work on multiple levels in one session.

Engage your clients on a deeper level
Learn how to address deep patterns in the musculoskeletal system by handling energy and structure simultaneously. Zero Balancing will add energetic engagement to your structural work or structural engagement to your energy work. Either way, you will find that you achieve powerful and lasting effects.

Work with greater clarity and ease
Learn Interface Touch that brings clear awareness of both your own and your client's physical and energetic boundaries. Working at Interface protects you and your client, so you can practice any healing art more easily without becoming drained.

Offer an effective session after Zero Balancing I, then expand your skills
Learn a treatment protocol that is effective for clients of all ages and that addresses physical, emotional and mental issues simultaneously. ZB offers your clients bone-deep relaxation similar to meditation that allows them to release old patterns, including stress and pain.

On Completion:  This course is the first step in the Zero Balancing Certification process.  Students will be able to practice ZB on completion and will receive a letter of verification at the end of the class indicating 25 CEUs approved both by the NCBTMB and for massage relicensing.  To learn more about the requirements to become a certified ZB practitioner, go to www.zerobalancing.com and click on "certification" on the right hand side under heading "learn zero balancing.”
