Murray Douglas will realign your soul!

This brilliant therapist is a practitioner of Acupuncture, Tai Chi and Zero Balancing.

I first heard about Murray 8 years ago but until recently hadn’t been able to pin him down. Murray travels the world as a healer, catch him when you can, it’s a life changing experience. Murray works from home and has the most relaxing therapy room, covered in pictures of Buddha & Shiva, many books on healing, meditation, there are beautiful crystals & stones,  and there’s always some kind of delicious incense burning.

Zero Balancing (ZB) is an ideal way for you to stay healthy. By working with your body ZB relieves pain and reduces stress, leaving you feeling restored and relaxed. ZB is based on the understanding that energy exists in our body, with its own anatomy, its own function and its own disorders. It recognizes the idea that as this energy flows within our bodies, it does so in relationship with our body structure, in particular our bones and skeleton. What sets ZB apart, and makes it unique, is that it specifically focuses on this dynamic marriage between energy and structure in our body, very much as a sailor pays attention to how the wind engages his sail to ensure his boat moves forward smoothly and easily. ZB supports this inner relationship, enabling you to feel more attuned to your body and in so doing, more able to navigate life, no matter how stormy the waters. Working on holding points of stillness that he creates through touch, using gentle finger pressure or stretches. This facilitates a positive release of tension in the body and mind.
In this way we can simply ‘let go’ of all the stresses and strains of life and drop into a deep state of relaxation. Not only can such a release feel incredibly good to experience, it can also leave a profound sense of inner ease and well-being that we literally feel in our bones. Bones conduct the strongest flows of energy through the body and the quality of this ‘bone energy’ determines where we work. We also pay particular attention to those joints in the body that conduct gravity and balance posture and movement. Because these key joints naturally have a small range of motion, when they become compromised, the body has few options to resolve the restriction, compensating elsewhere. For example, an imbalance in the tarsal bones of the foot might therefore present as pain and discomfort in the knee, or hip. ZB directly addresses these joint imbalances. Recognizing small changes in function in these ‘foundation’ joints will produce a significant improvement in body ease
and alignment.

The founder of Zero Balancing, Dr ‘Fritz’ Frederick Smith, was born into ‘a world of touch’ in Ohio in 1929. His father was a noted chiropractor who understood the healing potential of skilled touch, and worked full-time in a busy practice into his 90s. Receiving touch from his father and watching his father work were invaluable experiences for Fritz, and significantly contributed to his development of Zero Balancing in 1975.

Murray performs ZB infused with his energy and skill to make your therapy unique to you. For example he may perform a ZB session with acupuncture and show you different stretches or positions to alleviate aches and pains that you can use at home. I always have the feeling no two sessions have ever been the same, there’s always homework on being aware of your body needs regarding your complaint, he is indeed an oracle of information both scientific and spiritual. I have tried many therapies and therapists over the last 15 years, they’ve all come and go but Murray is one those rare gems that you become rather attached to, slightly grudged to share but you know that you’d be dong the world an injustice by keeping him all to yourself! I champion him as one of the best therapists I’ve ever been lucky enough to meet, he’ll educate and care for your body and mind whilst sharing his gravitational energy.

You’ll see Murray and an hour or so may go by, you’ll feel energised and on the road to wellness with the feeling you’ve just had tea with a friend.
