Zero Balancing® I with Carla Van Arnam

Zero Balancing® I with Carla Van Arnam

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a unique, hands on, body-mind system of healing. Combining Eastern and Western concepts of healing and anatomy, ZB clarifies & coordinates energy fields in the body by accessing the deepest currents – in the bones and joints.ZB offers the opportunity to work with expanded states of consciousness and to address the energetic field imbalances that precede illness. Zero Balancing promotes a clear state of balance, which helps relieve pain, promotes health and healing and provides a foundation for happiness. ZB also reduces stress related tension, deepens self-awareness, and brings a person closer to their true nature. After ZB clients often state that they feel more grounded, more at ease, and as if they’ve come home to themselves. ZB I students learn to navigate the energetic and structural anatomies of the body’s foundational structures and explore the body’s consciousness through touch. On completion of the class, ZB I practitioners will have the basic skills needed to integrate ZB into their established work and also to practice Zero Balancing sessions. Health care practitioners using Zero Balancing skills find themselves able to serve their clients/patients more completely, work with less effort, and feel greater personal and professional satisfaction.

Zero Balancing helps you:

  • Recharge your own energy while you work.
  • Get more information in your hands
  • Have a greater effect with less work.
  • Work with clear therapeutic boundaries.

Zero Balancing helps your clients achieve:

  • Lasting pain relief.
  • Improved mobility, stability & alignment.
  • Profound stress relief.
  • Release from old patterns.

You will learn:

  • Unique qualities of bone tissue and clearing tension from the skeleton with conscious touch.
  • A full-body sequence to offer clients deep relaxation, ease, alignment, and balance.
