Add Zero Balancing to your therapeutic toolkit:

  • Support deep healing for chronic issues

  • Expand your client base

  • Learn exciting touch principles and techniques

After the first four-day course, you'll have everything you need to start giving ZB sessions!

After four 4-day courses, you become eligible for certification as a Zero Balancing practitioner.

 

Courses combine philosophy, theory, discussion and LOTS of hands on experience. Special attention is paid to the quality of touch, and creating a deeply safe touch experience for your client and yourself.

You'll learn about fulcrums, what they are, how they support healing and also how to do them. You'll get the chance to perform ZB and receive it from other students and from Rebekah as well.

Each workshop is filled with enthusiasm and excitement for how the body works and how we can work with it to support lasting change for our clients and ourselves.

Zero Balancing Courses & Descriptions

Zero Balancing I (ZBI)

This is the first course of the Core Zero Balancing curriculum and introduces the intellectual and practical framework of the art and science of Zero Balancing. Core Zero Balancing teaches students to work with body structure and body energy along with a unique approach to skilled touch called Interface Touch. Students learn a 30 to 40-minute Zero Balancing protocol that allow beginners to offer Zero Balancing sessions to healthy individuals in keeping with their skills, expertise, and scope of practice.  

No pre-requisite.

 

You Will Learn:

  • The basic Zero Balancing protocol

  • Theory and principles of ZB

  • To distinguish body energy and body structure through touch

  • The skill of using energy as a working tool

  • The energetic anatomy of the skeleton

  • The theory and application of fulcrums

  • How to give a ZB session

Zero Balancing II (ZBII)

Zero Balancing II is the second half of the Core Zero Balancing program in which students review the material from ZB I while learning new fulcrums and expanding their understanding of how and why Zero Balancing is so effective. ZB II is highly recommended for all ZB practitioners who have not taken a ZB course in a while as it includes the most up-to-date methods for performing Zero Balancing.

Pre-requisite - ZBI

 

You Will Learn:

  • A review of the basic ZB protocol with an emphasis on quality of touch, focus and positioning of the practitioner

  • To deepen your understanding of ZB theory, principles and techniques

  • Additional techniques to create an expanded protocol

  • New skills and coordination in handling energy and structure

  • How to frame or set goals for a ZB session

  • To advance your ability to work with expanded states of consciousness

  • To give and receive constructive peer feedback

  • To acquire experience in preparation for advanced study

Alchemy of Touch

Alchemy of Touch expands basic Zero Balancing principles to work with amplified fields of vibration within the body and shows you how to create fulcrums that work with these amplified and therefore empowered fields. It provides clients with a direct experience of the healing state. In addition to presenting new material, Alchemy of Touch enables you to deepen foundation Zero Balancing skills through demonstrations and exchanges of Zero Balancing. Alchemy of Touch is the second of three courses related to energy fields: Core Zero Balancing addresses the existing relationships between body energy fields and body structure; Alchemy of Touch introduces strategies to amplify the vibratory fields and to work with empowered fields; Geometry of Healing introduces working with the vibratory fields themselves, including the exploration of the space between vibrations and the information found therein.

Pre-requisite - ZBI & ZBII

 

You Will Learn:

  • Alchemical principles and their modern-day applications

  • The theory, purpose and therapeutic use of energy amplification

  • How to use bone as an energy conduit

  • How to amplify vibration, both locally and generally in the body

  • How to contain and establish boundaries of energy

  • In-depth exploration of framing (a session) while working with a client's personal history

  • To monitor shifts of consciousness and expanded states

  • To recognize working signs of amplified fields in your clients

Geometry of Healing

Geometry of Healing (GOH) is an advanced level Zero Balancing course that teaches students how to work directly with the vibratory/energetic fields of the body. It defines ‘fields’ and then teaches how to access and evaluate vibratory fields, obtain information contained therein, and how to balance and clarify the designated field or material. The program shows how to work with slowed vibratory fields to access “the gap” (an experience of stepping beyond time, space, and information — a field of pure potential). Much of the theoretical material presented is based on quantum physics, holograms, field theory, and how they relate to the world of touch. GOH is the third of three Zero Balancing courses related to energy fields: Core Zero Balancing addresses the relationship between existing body energy fields and body structure; Alchemy of Touch applies amplification strategies to balance energy fields; GOH works with the fields themselves including the space between vibrations.

Pre-requisite - ZBI & ZBII

 

You Will Learn:

  • Theory of fields

  • Accessing, evaluating and navigating fields

  • Creation of ‘windows’ into the field

  • Entering and experiencing the ‘gap’ within the field

  • Compression of fields

  • Obtaining information from within the field

  • Self-referencing body signals as feedback for practitioner

  • Teachings designed to deepen your basic ZB skills and protocol use

  • Through exchanges of Zero Balancing sessions and demonstrations

Freely Moveable Joints

Freely Moveable Joints is an advanced level Zero Balancing course that expands the focus of Zero Balancing from the foundation and semi-foundation joints of the body to include the “freely moveable joints” of the body. Zero Balancing principles and techniques are taken beyond the Core Zero Balancing protocol into other arenas. The freely moveable joints present unique therapeutic challenges because of the variety of their anatomy and their great ranges of motion. By the end of the program you will have the skills to evaluate and balance freely moveable joints and the knowledge to devise your own fulcrums to meet the specific needs of a given situation. In Freely Moveable Joints we will review basic ZB principles and highlight their application to a number of joints in light of their specific anatomy. The skills and education inherent in this course will broaden your Zero Balancing abilities and will improve your Zero Balancing sessions.

Pre-requisite - ZBI & ZBII

 

You Will Learn:

  • Highlights of Zero Balancing principles as they apply to FMJs

  • Upper extremity: shoulder girdle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers

  • Lower extremity: knee, ankle, metatarsals, toes

  • Accessing the sacro-iliac joint via the hip

  • Acetabular hip fulcrum

  • Temporomandibular joint fulcrum

  • Direct bone fulcrums and ‘bone bending’

  • Teachings designed to deepen your basic ZB skills and protocol use

  • By exchanging Zero Balancing sessions and seeing ZB demonstrations

Intro to ZB

The One-Day Introduction to Zero Balancing is designed to provide an introduction to the principles of touch used in Zero Balancing, to the concepts of body structure and body energy, and to a set of hands-on Zero Balancing techniques. This course will include lecture, demonstration, hands-on and experiential components. This is a class that enables practitioners to “try out” Zero Balancing. It is also a class for patients or lay people to learn the principles of Zero Balancing and simple fulcrums designed to relieve stress in their friends, partners or children.

Pre-requisite - ZBI & ZBII

 

You Will Learn:

  • The theory and principles of ZB

  • To distinguish body energy and body structure through touch

  • The theory and application of fulcrums

  • How to give a series of short fulcrums to address stress and tension in the body

Skills Advancement Day

Skills enhancement days review material you learned in a previous ZB workshop and give you an opportunity to fine-tune your practice, ask questions and receive feedback on your touch. Skills enhancement days may relate to a specific course, for e.g. Alchemy of Touch skills enhancement day, in which case Alchemy of Touch workshop is a pre-requisite for attendance. 

Ethics & Professional Practice

 

This two day workshop is required for NZ & Australian certification candidates who do not have a health care license.  We look at closely at the client-practitioner relationship and how understanding ZB principles such as the donkey connection and blue line, help us to navigate our empowered role in ways that serve both ourselves and our clients.  Additionally the class looks at how to talk about ZB to clients and other professionals, how to set up your practice and troubleshooting.  As always we review the protocol and have the opportunity to refine our touch, and understanding of ZB principles.
