Zero Balancing for Body and Mind

Sep 30, 2015 07:47AM

In a 2009 interview with Massage & Bodywork magazine, Dr. Fritz Smith, an osteopathic physician, explained his understanding of energy as a departure from his traditional medical training. “We have come to understand that energy is consciousness, that vibration holds information and that energy is a basic building block of our bodies,” said Smith, the creator of Zero-Balancing. This hands-on modality balances the relationship of energy and structure in the body/mind with a clear and comfortable deep touch called “interface.” It can even facilitate the body’s release of tension held in the bones and ligaments.

Interface touch creates a clear place of contact so that both client and practitioner are present, attentive and in the moment. For the practitioner, which remains clearly aware, and the client, which enters into a state of expanded consciousness, Zero Balancing can be a meditative experience, as well as an opportunity for the body/mind to reorganize and release superfluous emotions, thoughts and pain, thereby enhancing health.

According to Smith’s perspective and experience, the body holds memory in its tissues. As a clearer, stronger field of energy is brought in through tissue, a therapist can alter or release the tissue-held vibration from the body, thus discharging held memories and old trauma. Once freed from these outdated tensions, Smith explains that the individual is less programmed or influenced by their history, making them more congruent with the present moment. Releasing nonfunctional information in the form of memory and holding patterns within bone that represent our earliest conditioning and teaching can be life-changing.
