Zero Balancing attempts to move into balance the quality of body energy and physical structure. It uses directed touch to remove the stresses of daily living.
A zero balancing session begins with the certified practitioner evaluating energy fields and the flow of energy throughout your body. The client will remain fully clothed, sit and later lay down on a table. Zero balancing therapy is given by applying gentle finger pressures into areas along the vertebral (spinal) column and lower sacral area. Attention is given to the boney skeleton in particular because it contains the deepest and strongest energy currents.
Zero balancing has been suggested to help relieve stress and pain. It may improve energy levels and bring a sense of well being.
