For people: Zero Balancing sessions at home office in north Kirkland, or may be done where I travel for animal clients, if there is an appropriate space available.
For horses and dogs: Techniques are determined by the animal's needs and how they're responding. Based on one or more of the following: Zero Balancing, Myofascial Release (MFR), Acupressure/Shiatsu, Cranialsacral, Reiki, and various massage techniques.

What is Zero Balancing?
A powerful complement to other treatments (chiro, acupuncture, and other bodywork), or by itself.
A bit like "acupressure to the bone."
Here's one particularly fun (and accurate) description:
"It's like psychotherapy without the talking,
acupuncture without the needles,
and a deep tissue massage with your clothes on."
Developed by Dr. Fritz Smith, MD, Osteopath and Acupuncturist
(from the Zero Balancing website) "Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body....The practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment.
A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization."
