Zero Balancing, a gentle yet powerful system of touch, was developed by Fritz Frederick Smith, MD, a doctor of osteopathy and medicine. His extensive study of Western scientific models and Eastern principles of energy and healing afforded him a unique insight into the relationship between energy, qi (also known as “chi”) as a force in the body, and structural anatomy.
Dr Smith’s desire to integrate both principles into a single therapeutic system culminated with his developing Zero Balancing in 1975. A recent study into the effects of Zero Balancing shows that it is a highly effective means for reducing stress, anxiety and tension.
The simple average for measured stress reduction during a 30 minute Zero Balancing session was 61%, versus an average of 12% for clients during a rest period. Not only did the study evidence this significant reduction in stress, it also showed clients settling into a synchrony – or an equilibrium with themselves at a “point of zero balance” during their Zero Balancing session. The sharpest fall in stress was associated with the first contact at the beginning of the session. Questionnaire results showed that after every ZB session participants rated themselves more positively.
