Zero Balancing 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. Zero Balancing 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, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment. A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization.


Zero Balancing (ZB) offers many powerful benefits to people of all ages. Here are some of the compelling reasons why you should experience it for yourself:


Increases feelings of health and well-being

Zero Balancing induces a state of deep rest that allows you to feel truly relaxed, renewed and well. Regular sessions may help you to feel more vital and alive.


Releases stress and improves the flow of energy in our bodies

Did you know that bones and other connective tissue actually conduct energy? ZB helps to free the flow of energy in the musculoskeletal system to help relieve stress and boost your body’s natural energy.


Reduces pain and discomfort

Blocks in the body’s energy often lead to imbalance, discomfort and pain. Zero Balancing helps open stuck areas in the body’s natural shock absorbers: the tarsal bones in the arches of the feet, the joints where the ribs meet the spine, the neck, the hips and the sacrum. Once these areas are free, pain can release.


Enhances stability, balance and freedom

ZB helps to create a wonderful feeling of inner and outer balance, alignment and organization. When your body is clear and balanced and your posture is aligned, you can move with freedom.


Amplifies the sense of connection, peace and happiness

Zero Balancing is deeply satisfying. Often during a session, you experience a sense of expansiveness, peace and contentment.


Releases mental, emotional and physical tension

ZB works on multiple levels to release tissue-held memory and tension patterns that may be affecting mental, emotional and physical states.


Supports us through transitions and transformations

A Zero Balancing session supports positive changes in behavior or attitude by giving you the chance to state your personal goals for change – which then become the focus of the session. With the ZB practitioner’s attention and touch, energy is realigned so that old patterns can drop away and resistance to change subsides.


Improves quality of life and increases capacity for enjoyment

Zero Balancing helps us to feel better equipped to handle daily pressures. Many people who receive sessions on a regular basis find themselves more joyful and satisfied in both personal and work relationships.

Ben has a charming, open mind and listens to verbal and body cues to help in Zero Balancing treatments. Relaxing atmosphere. The utmost relaxing experience!! - JD
My experience was very positive. I went seeking acupuncture for weight loss. At the time of my appointment I received an upsetting phone call which triggered, what I would describe as, a panic attack; something I am not prone to. I asked Ben if he could use the needles to calm me as I know that can help. Instead he felt that zero balancing might help more. It was my first experience with this kind of body work. It was amazing. I came away with completely different energy and a clearer perspective on my problems. And no panic! Yay!
Thank you, Ben!
