Studying Zero Balancing
Zero Balancing faculty offer in-person classes structured as continuing education intensives for health care professionals. If you want to offer a holistic body-mind practice that incorporates skilled, mindful and compassionate touch, the path to learning Zero Balancing includes:
- the theory and practice of working with body structure and energy
- hands-on instruction in both physical and energetic anatomy and physiology
- learning to work with energy through direct touch to the skeleton and other tissues
- learning, practicing and embodying the ZB session protocol
- giving and receiving ZB sessions
- obtaining feedback from experienced practitioners
Zero Balancing Curriculum & Courses
The study of ZB begins with Core Zero Balancing — taking Zero Balancing I followed by a period of practice and then taking Zero Balancing II. Completing Core Zero Balancing provides a solid foundation to begin to offer ZB sessions and is a prerequisite for most other ZB courses.
We strongly encourage those who want to offer ZB professionally to continue with the ZB Foundations group of courses and to join our Certification Program.
Zero Balancing in-person courses involve substantial hands-on practice. Students experience the benefits of ZB by exchanging work with fellow students, class assistants and also through receiving touch from the instructor. Learning ZB well involves exploration and practice outside of classes. Receiving ZB sessions is a must for students and can accelerate learning. Find practitioners in your area. Students can find additional support through ZB study groups, certified mentors and tutorials with faculty members.
See below for groups of courses and links to course descriptions. Search the Events Calendar to find specific offerings, including online programs and special events.
These courses define and teach the foundational skills and principles of Zero Balancing. With the exceptions of Introduction to Zero Balancing and the Advancing Skills Day classes, each course satisfies ZBHA Certification requirements.
