Benefits of Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing offers many powerful benefits to people of all ages. Here are some of the compelling reasons why you should seek Zero Balancing:

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 Zero Balancing 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? Zero Balancing 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
Zero Balancing 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
Zero Balancing works on multiple levels to release tissue-held memory and tension patterns that may be affecting your 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 Zero Balancing on a regular basis find themselves more joyful and satisfied in both personal and work relationships.

Welcome to Zero Balancing


"Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement."


Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, 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.

How can Zero Balancing help you?

Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life. Zero Balancing can also be helpful with specific goals such as relief from back pain, improving concentration or sleep, releasing unwanted stress, eliminating old behavior patterns, or boosting well-being. Zero Balancing works in conjunction with medical therapy and is not a substitute for it.

I was at the same workshop with David - it was amazing. This was the Advanced Zero Balancing workshop, and it was taught by the founder of Zero Balancing, Fritz Smith. What a brilliant, amazing, humble man - a true blessing to study under his guidance!

Hi. I'm a Zero Balancer in Gainesville Florida, certified in 2005. Also I act as class liaison and registrar for Judith Sullivan for her classes. If you are interested in her advanced classes (Spirit of the Organs, Unlocking Secrets of the Skull and ZB for Kids) please let me know. That's to either attend or sponsor a class.
End of blatant advertisement.

Here is some information of interest to the Zero Balancing community. Warmly, Ariana Vincent, Ariana Institue,


The Zero Balancing Health Association (ZBHA) is very pleased to announce that ZB faculty and Board member Megan Lavery has been appointed to the Massage Therapy Body of Knowledge Task Force. This is an eight-person task force not affiliated with any specific organization, funded by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), AMTA-Council of Schools, Federation of State Massage Boards (FSMTB), Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF), and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).

The goal of the Task Force is to define the foundational elements of the practice of massage therapy (scope of practice, terminology, describing the field) and define the competencies of an entry- level massage therapist in terms of knowledge, skills, and abilities.

This body of knowledge will inform and allow for consistent use of terminology in the fields of massage education, licensure, certification, practice, accreditation and research. The ZBHA acknowledges Megan and her fellow Task Force members for the clarity they are striving to bring to the field.

Zero Balancing is a hands-on body-mind system of therapy that balances the relationship of energy and structure within the bones and tissues of the body. Aligning energy with structure enhances the body’s natural healing processes and supports optimum health.

For more information, visit or phone the ZBHA at 410-381-8956.
