Zero Balancing (ZB)

Developed by Dr. Fritz Smith by 1975, ZB is a hands-on body and mind system. Its aim is to align body energy with the body's physical structure. A treatment process generally takes between 30 and 40 minutes and is performed with you clothed and seated, moving from there to a reclining position on your back. Dr. Smith received osteopathic degree in 1955 and his MD in 1961. During the '60s and '70s he investigated the field of study as a student of Rolfing®, yoga, meditation and Eastern philosophies. In 1972, he became an acupuncturist at Jack R. Worsley’s 'Chinese College of Acupuncture' in England. Then under the teaching of Swami Muktananda, Fritz experienced intense personal revelations these experiences became the catalysts for the designing his Zero Balancing technique.
