Zero Balancing

Body-mind therapy using highly skilled touch to engender balance between body structure and body energy to amplify wellness.

Zero Balancing


Zero Balancing (ZB) is a hands-on bodywork system conceptually related to acupuncture. It is based on the Eastern concept of an energy system and its relationship to physical structure. It differs from acupuncture in that it uses touch, rather than needles, and works with the energy in bone, rather than the acupuncture meridians. In the Zero Balancing treatment paradigm, an imbalance between structure and energy contributes to a person’s experience of pain, stress, decreased function, and lack of wellness.

Holistic in approach, Zero Balancing does not focus on specific symptoms. However, symptoms resolve as the physical structure and energy system are brought into balance. Incorporating Zero Balancing into Physical Therapy sessions enables treatment to address both the structural and energetic causes of pain and dysfunction.

Gentle and deeply relaxing, Zero Balancing sessions are received while fully clothed, lying on one’s back on a comfortable treatment table.

Zero Balancing can be particularly effective for people who have not improved, or not improved enough, with traditional treatments. Examples of a few of the problems that respond well to Zero Balancing include:

  • Musculoskeletal pain (e.g. back, neck, shoulder, foot)
  • Stress-related diagnoses
  • Pain due to current or previous physical trauma (e.g. falls, car accidents)
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia

In addition, Zero Balancing is a wonderful modality that can increase your sense of well-being and deepen your connection with who you truly are. It is deeply relaxing and provides an opportunity for self-reflection, a time to drop deeply into yourself.
