A note from Lisa:
Trained as a Massage Therapist, I was drawn to Zero Balancing because I was seeking an approach in my touch therapy practice that would bring me greater ease in my own body and help me connect with my clients at a deeper level; at bone level. With ZB's concept of how tension is held in the bone and the unique understanding of how to work with  bone-held energy, ZB was the answer I was looking for. As a massage therapist, I was able to immediately introduce many ZB techniques  into my practice and my clients loved it! Whether you are an OT, massage therapist, acupuncturist or lay person wanting to explore the realm of bodywork, I want to share my love of ZB with you.


Zero Balancing I is the first half of the Core Zero Balancing program and the first course of the Core Zero Balancing curriculum. ZB I introduces you to the technique, theory, touch skills and history of the art and science of Zero Balancing. In these hands-on workshops, you will learn how to perform Zero Balancing sessions and experience what it feels like to receive a Zero Balancing session. 

The instructor will deliver clear presentations and demonstrations of Zero Balancing evaluations and techniques, along with a detailed study guide to inform your ongoing practice.  

You will learn: 

  • A basic treatment protocol that addresses the whole body in about 30 minutes  
  • Theory and principles of ZB 
  • To distinguish body energy and body structure through touch 
  • The skill of using energy as a working tool 
  • The energetic anatomy of the skeleton 
  • The theory and application of Zero Balancing techniques called fulcrums
  • How to give a ZB session that addresses the whole body 

What Participants say about ZB I:

“This course has completely changed my view and perspective of my practice.” -Alan Willoughby 

“I feel the structure and energy [of Zero Balancing] will help get some patients past a plateau I have reached with massage.” -Chris Wilson
