Just a few weeks ago in October 2023, a congenial group of students and two Zero Balancing (ZB) teachers met for four days, ushering in a small historic moment: the post-pandemic return of Zero Balancing classes to Portland, Oregon. Zero Balancing I was offered for the first time since 2019, co-taught by Elizabeth Zenger, Ph.D., L.Ac. and Jamie Carmody, L.M.T.
If you have ever thought about learning Zero Balancing, 2024 is your opportunity to begin your studies in Portland, Oregon. Both courses in the Core Zero Balancing series Zero Balancing I (ZB I) and Zero Balancing II (ZB II), will be offered next year. Save the dates for ZB I (March 21 to 24, 2024) and ZB II (September 19 to 22, 2024).

Zero Balancing is a hands-on system of body therapy that works with both energy and structure in the body/mind. Gentle and deeply relaxing to receive, it is designed to restore balance and create the opportunity for healing. Zero Balancing is performed through the clothing, with the receiver face up on a treatment table, and takes 30 to 40 minutes per session.
Anyone can study Zero Balancing and enroll in Zero Balancing I. There is no prerequisite. In this entry level course, you will learn the theoretical and practical foundations for Zero Balancing, and a full body protocol which you can use immediately. Zero Balancing II deepens and expands the skills learned in Zero Balancing I.
Whether you are new to hands-on therapy or an experienced practitioner looking to add new skills, you can benefit from Core Zero Balancing. If you are already experienced in the practice of Zero Balancing, these are great classes to repeat and brush up on skills.
The classes will be taught by Portland’s resident Zero Balancing Faculty member, Elizabeth Zenger, Ph.D., L.Ac. After a gap of several years during the COVID pandemic, she is once again teaching classes in Portland. The classes are small and can accommodate up to 10 students. This makes for a supportive and intimate learning environment where students receive plenty of individualized feedback, which is so important for learning hands-on skills.
