About us

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a non-diagnostic system of healing which clarifies and coordinates energy fields in the body, balances body energy with body structure, and focuses on bone energy and the skeletal system. Science has shown that energy and matter are fundamentally coupled; psychology has shown that the mind and body are interconnected. ZB embodies both perspectives. It is based on the experience that balancing the body’s energy with its structure has a direct positive effect on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Imbalances often lead to loss of vitality, chronic pain, and decreased potential for vibrant health. The body’s structural/energetic interface is beneath conscious awareness. When imbalances occur at this level, the body tends to compensate around them rather than resolve them. Rooted in both Eastern healing and energy and Western medicine and science, ZB brings unique touch and relevant design to overcome imbalanced patterns.

This program, part one of a two-part Core Zero Balancing series, is the entry-level program. Didactic and experiential, it is open to all health care professionals. The workshop will teach newcomers how to perform a complete hands-on session, and for the experienced, it will deepen understanding and enhance skills. It also includes theory and practice of the ZB protocol, methods for evaluating and balancing the body’s structural/energetic interface, and how to use energy as a tool. This workshop qualifies for credit toward Zero Balancing certification.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
