Zero Balancing Benefits

ZB offers powerful benefits to people of all ages.

Increases feelings of health and well-being

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


Releases stress and improves the flow of energy in our bodies

Did you know that bones and other connective tissue conduct energy? Zero Balancing uses touch to release deep tension and free the flow of energy in the musculoskeletal system. This relieves stress and boosts your body’s natural vitality.  


Reduces pain and discomfort

Blocks in the body’s energy often lead to imbalance, discomfort and pain. Zero Balancing works to open restrictions in the skeleton’s natural shock absorbers, such as the tarsal bones in the arches of the feet, the joints where the ribs meet the spine, and the sacro-iliac joints. Once these areas are free and balanced, pain symptoms often resolve.


Enhances stability, balance and freedom

Zero Balancing helps to create a wonderful feeling of inner and outer balance. It’s like feng shui for your being. 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

People who receive ZB often feel more connected to themselves, to others and to the world. During a session and afterwards, people experience a sense of expansiveness, peace and contentment.


Releases mental, emotional and physical tension

Zero Balancing works on multiple levels of the body-mind to release tissue-held memory and tension patterns that may be affecting your mental, emotional and physical states.


Supports us through transitions and transformations

As our life changes we can feel out of balance. At the beginning of a ZB session you can state an intention to align with your goals and desires. As the practitioner engages your bodymind, inducing a deep state of ease, you can let go of any resistance and empower your ability to change. People use ZB to improve relationships, clarify life goals, manage the stress of big changes like a move or a new job, and support personal growth. ZB can help you release old patterns and open to new possibilities.


Improves quality of life and increases capacity for enjoyment

Many people who receive ZB on a regular basis find themselves more joyful and satisfied with their lives as they unfold.

Investigating the Effects of Zero Balancing on the Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Dimensions of Wellness: A Phenomenological MIxed Methods Pilot Study


Rhoads, Misty L.; Murphy, Mary; Doucette, Michele; Gentile, Tom; Rhoads, Dylan; and Watson, Jacob (2021) "Investigating the Effects of Zero Balancing on the Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Dimensions of Wellness: A Phenomenological MIxed Methods Pilot Study," The International Journal of Zero Balancing and Transformative Touch: Vol. 1 : Iss. 1 , Article 11.
Background: Today, the necessity for relieving undue stress on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels is evident at this time of concomitant global crises from the pandemic, societal inequity, and climatic challenges. Methods to restore and enhance human well-being are critically needed.The study of overall wellness has not yet included the role that skilled, conscious touch may play in supporting the dimensions of wellness, an awareness of which this study seeks to elevate by exploring the effects of receiving positive touch on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of wellness.
Results: Based on the results of this study we conclude that Zero Balancing is an integrative, low cost, simply administered, holistic therapy with multiple benefits. We also suggest this body therapy, with its focus on skilled, conscious touch, does facilitate wellness in the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of wellness.
