Although Megan first came to bodywork through the physical (massage, anatomy, etc.), she soon discovered that she could not ignore the role energy plays in the body. Bodies are energy, she thought, so why not work with both aspects together?
The answer, she would eventually come to learn, lay in a technique called Zero Balancing. For the first 12 years of her career, however, she could only work with the physical aspects of bodywork. She gained a variety of skills during this time, including Acupressure, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Technique, Lymphatic Facilitation, but none quite manage to capture and incorporate the importance of working with energy alongside the physical. Until finally, in 2013, she learned of Zero Balancing.
She was initially intrigued by the blending of the physical/structural with the energetic, the blending of the “East” with the “West” that Zero Balancing offered, and by the recent ZB research studies that confirmed an average stress reduction of 61% during a 30-minute ZB session versus a 12% stress reduction for clients during an equivalent rest period. She was “sold” on it by the results she began seeing for her clients, both two- and four-legged.
Part 2 features the continuation of Megan’s journey to where she is today, and the results she and her clients continue to see.
