Zero Balancing (ZB) is an innovative, holistic and powerful hands-on method for integrating the body’s energy and structure. Developed by Dr. Fritz Smith MD, osteopath and acupuncturist, ZB integrates Western concepts of anatomy with Eastern principles of energy flow through the bones and joints of the body. Interruptions to this flow can result from physical, mental or emotional disturbances. ZB mobilizes held energy at the bone layer thus releasing held tensions in the more superficial tissues and layers of the body/mind and throughout the entire system.

This course will present the foundational aspects of Zero Balancing through lecture, discussion, and hands-on practice. As a stand alone therapy, or an adjunct to other types of treatment, ZB techniques learned in this seminar can immediately be incorporated into a health care practice, as well as used by the general public with family and friends.
