Written by a well-established teacher of the practice, this guide to the mind-body therapy Zero Balancing is aimed at bodyworkers and all complementary medicine practitioners who work with qi. Zero Balancing uses hands-on conscious touch to address the relationship between energy and the structures of the body and clears blocks in energy flow to allow greater postural alignment and vitality. Rooting the esoteric aspects of qi and energy in a practical bodywork approach, the book is essential reading for any practitioner wishing to develop their awareness skills and access the world of energy medicine.
