Zero Balancing is a bodywork system developed by Dr Fritz Smith of California in the USA. Dr Smith is a medical practitioner, osteopath and acupuncturist with a lifetime of experience of both Eastern and Western healthcare systems.
Zero Balancing offers a non-diagnostic approach, which focuses on improvement of overall function, rather than identification and focus on disease. Its aim is to improve and optimise the relationship between the structure of the body, and its energy systems. By utilising a whole body approach, addressing our natural energy flow, and respecting the dynamism of our structure, Zero Balancing helps optimal health to shine through.
The technique involves the application of light pressures and gently held stretches called fulcrums to specific small joints of the skeleton. The function of these joints is to transmit deep forces (energy) clearly through the body. Zero Balancing fulcrums enhance this function, facilitating a deep level of relaxation and increased sense of ease and well-being. By virtue of this relaxation, a sense of clarity in the mind and freedom of expression in the emotions may also be achieved.
Zero Balancing can be useful for body pain problems, stress reduction, injury and structural misalignment, and improvement in flexibility and posture. It can also enhance a feeling of well-being, or restore a sense of ‘grounding’ in the body, helping us to feel truly and happily present within ourselves.
