The energy body work system of Zero Balancing …

Derbyshire Zero Balancing for stress relief Sep 2014was founded by Fritz Frederick Smith, MD in the early 70’s . As a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, and as a doctor of both osteopathy and medicine, Dr Smith has always been fascinated by the healing power of touch. Dr Smith studied at Esalen Institute in Northern California during the late 1960’s with many of the forerunners of the body-mind therapy movement, where he became a certified Rolfer. There he met JR Worsley, founder of the College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in England, whose demonstrations “cracked” Dr Smith’s beliefs in the purely Western medical model.

During this period he also began to explore yoga, meditation, spiritual teachings in India, Eastern energy medicine, and quantum physics. Soon after Dr Smith travelled to Leamington Spa in the UK to study with JR Worsley where he became a licensed acupuncturist in 1972, earning both bachelor’s and master’s degree in acupuncture, and earning a fellowship in the Chinese College of Acupuncture.

In Zero Balancing both energy and structure are engaged simultaneously through skilled touch to bring about profound healing, personal transformation and amplified wellness.

Dr Smith has been practicing and teaching Zero Balancing throughout the world for more than 35 years. He is the author of many articles and two books, “Inner Bridges“ & “The Alchemy of Touch“.
