I'm Harry, I practice Zero Balancing or 'ZB' for short, considered a leading edge in body-mind therapies. ZB is a gentle and powerful hands-on bodywork system that affects the whole person by working with the deepest physical structure of the body, bones, joints and other soft tissues and the energy that flows through them. Skilled therapeutic touch addresses unconscious tension patterns held in the body that contribute to pain, limitation, suffering and can produce lasting beneficial change.
Dr Frederick FritzSmith MD, a doctor of osteopathy and medicine established Zero Balancing in 1975. His profound insights into the relationship between energy as a force in the body and structural anatomy, became the therapeutic system of Zero balancing we know and love today. Zero Balancing is a thriving globally practiced bodywork system, although is relatively unknown. As one of only two Zero Balancers in Sheffield and the Yorkshire region, I'm thrilled to be working at The Practice Rooms and introducing you to the eloquence and efficacy of ZB.
ZB's many benefits include: enhanced feelings of vitality & wellbeing - improved posture & physical function - relief of the symptoms of stress - reduced physical and emotional pain - strengthened resiliency and self-actualisation - greater clarity and cognitive ability.
A recent study on the effects of receiving ZB confirm a significant 61% reduction in stress levels along with the clear correlation between reduced stress, less tension and expanded states of consciousness.

I studied contemporary dance at the 'NSCD' in Leeds, a member of the National Conservatoire for Dance and Drama and hold a Masters in dance composition. My bodywork interest began whilst working as a dance artist in the 90's. Sore and stressed out beaten up bodies needing support, rest and nurture amidst the demands of rigorous performance and touring schedules. Massage and touch were natural expressions of my desire to help support others which led me to becoming a massage therapist in 1998 at the Bodywise Natural Health Centre in London. I also lived for four years as a monastic in a Buddhist community in Scotland which allowed me to embrace amongst many things, my own sense of authenticity & truth not as a fixed destination but a journey unfolding.
Discovering ZB proved to be the perfect marriage and integration of all my previous interests and vocations. My continued movement education, knowledge of body-mind awareness practice and a continued unbound curiosity and reverence for life all somehow inform the way I practice Zero Balancing. Through the lens of ZB my aim is to continue to support others and facilitate their journey towards a balanced, rewarding & fulfilling life.
An LGBT+ community member I embrace the core values of equity and inclusion which aim to actively promote participation of all people.
