In the aim of balancing the structural and energetic bodies toward greater health and vitality, zero balancing and yoga are remarkably similar

There will be a free introductory presentation about Zero Balancing at Heart of the Village Yoga on Wednesday, April 19, 7:30-9:00 pm. Zero Balancing is a leading-edge, hands-on, body-mind therapy. This introductory presentation includes information, theory, and demonstration on energy medicine, on why and how it is effective and essential, through the lens of Zero Balancing. Please join Dr. Michele Doucette for a lively and interactive evening, or simply sit back and take it all in.
Zero Balancing (ZB) combines the Western view of medicine and science from the field of osteopathy with Eastern concepts of energy and healing from the field of acupuncture. It affects the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) by providing both structural therapy and energy medicine simultaneously. Practitioners learn to engage, evaluate, and balance the deepest currents of movement through bones, joints, ligaments and other soft tissue. ZB promotes an expansive, yet grounded, meditative state, and thereby offers the opportunity to work with expanded states of consciousness and to address imbalances in energy fields that precede pathology (illness). Clients often experience greater self-awareness, insight into personal health and wellness, and a profound sense of unity. ZB also promotes pain relief, improved joint function, ease of movement, and release of postural and stress-related tension. People often say ZB “brings them back home to themselves.”
“In the aim of balancing the structural and energetic bodies toward greater health and vitality, zero balancing and yoga are remarkably similar,” says Kate Pousont Scarborough, E-RYT 500, Director Shelburne Falls Yoga. “While one is delivered through touch and the other primarily through movement, the study of each can enhance the other in very profound ways. I’ve found that my study of zero balancing has opened up new levels of understanding of the energy body, greatly improved my touch skills, and given me many new tools to help both myself and my yoga students on a journey toward wholeness.”
This event is free and open to the public. It may be of particular interest to health and wellness professionals, and anyone interested in maximizing human potential.
