Volume X Issue III THE OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Page 5 May 15, 2004 Zero Balancing—What is it, and what can it do for you? A relatively new body work therapy available in Ogden Valley is offered by massage therapist Beth Kristenson from Valley Hair Co. Zero Balancing (ZB), itself, is not really new, having been developed by Dr. Fritz Smith in 1975. A western medically trained doctor, Smith created ZB after getting a master’s degree in Acupuncture from the J.R. Worsley Chinese College of Acupuncture in England. Zero Balancing is a meeting of western and eastern approaches in body/mind therapy, working with both the structure of the body, as well as the energy field, ultimately aligning them to bring balance and healing. Is it like a massage? In many respects, no. Zero Balancing is done on a massage table with the client fully clothed. A session usually lasts 30 to 40 minutes. Because the client is fully clothed, it’s ideal for people who have avoided massage in the past because of concerns of disrobing and the inherent intimacy of touching the skin. It’s also great for the client who is ticklish or feels they can’t relax during a regular massage session. The therapist works by performing what feels like stretches and finger pressure at many places throughout the body. These are actually fulcrums that facilitate energy movement in your hips, feet, back, and neck Why would I get a ZB? Zero Balancing is very relaxing. The relaxation leads to a decrease in the release of hormones associated with the stress response. Research has shown that changes in your energy field usually precede physical symptoms of illness. By working directly with your energy field, Zero Balancing may avert illness before it manifests itself physically. Zero Balancing may also help an old injury, where the bones have mended, but the energy patterns have not. It may help balance energy flow along your spine and joints, enabling your body to heal itself. Whether you have a physical complaint such as pain, or feel stressed and out of kilter, or just want to optimize your physical and mental well- being, most people can benefit from a Zero Balancing session. What will I feel? During a ZB session, you will probably feel very relaxed. You may feel fuzzy air or warmth associated with energy movement. Your mind will be aware of the room and the actual physical sensations of the therapist working, yet you may be in a dream like meditative state. At the end of a session, you may be aware that the therapist has stopped working, but you will probably feel like you want to lie there for a few minutes before you actually open your eyes. This is perfectly fine. Since every person is different, every session is unique as well, even from one session to the next in the same client. Deceptively simple, Zero Balancing works at a much deeper level than traditional massage. Directly working with structure and energy, the effects of a session seem to last longer. You can receive one session, or a series, depending on what brings you to the therapist. Beth Kristenson works in the western world of medicine as a nurse anesthetist at the University Hospital. On her days off from that job, she works in the complementary health care arena as a licensed massage therapist at the Valley Hair Co in Eden. Beth is presently working to become a certified ZB practitioner, and has attended several ZB training courses that allow her to offer this therapy. More information regarding Zero Balancing can be found on the ZB Association web site, <ZeroBalancing.com> If you are interested in receiving a ZB session, please make an appointment by contacting Beth at 745-3670. Orthodontic Checkup Recommended Before Age Seven The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. Most orthodontic treatment begins between the ages of 9-14, however, by age 7 most children have a mix of adult and baby teeth. Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. That’s important because some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they’re found early. Even though your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect. For each patient there is an ideal time for when treatment begins in order to achieve the best results. The orthodontist is the specialist who has the knowledge to determine when the time is just right. Note: Information courtesy of Jeffrey D. Shepherd, DMD, MSD.

First Annual WASATCH BACK RELAY—Hardware Ranch to Park City BackRoads Events, LLC, announces the first annual Wasatch Back Relay. Teams of 12 runners will compete in the 170-mile relay race beginning June 18, 2004 at Hardware Ranch near Logan, Utah and finishing on June 19 at the Town Lift in Park City, Utah. Team members will run three legs of the race varying from 3 to 6 miles each. Most teams should complete the race within approximately 24 hours. The deadline for team registration is May 10, 2004. This year participation is limited to 30 teams. The Wasatch Back Relay traverses the backside of the Wasatch Range passing seven beautiful Utah lakes, several scenic mountain towns, and some of the most breathtaking scenery Utah has to offer. Though physically demanding, the race allows a diversity of participants, from serious competitive runners to casual recreational runners and walkers. The race will traverse Avon Pass, then wind through Liberty, Eden, and Huntsville then cross over Trapper’s Loop. Each team has 12 people and 20 teams have already registered. Although registration is limited this year, the organizers anticipate the event will grow rapidly in size and popularity. BackRoads Events President Steve Hill observed, “I have participated in Oregon’s Hood to Coast Relay several times, and have dreamed for many years of bringing a similar event to Utah. Relays like this are an incredible experience for several reasons. First, they are challenging and provide a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Second, they offer participants a great opportunity to hang out with and enjoy their friends. We hope to make this a class event that runners will return to year after year.” A notable early entrant in the race is the BYU women’s cross country team, which finished second in the NCAA championship in 2003 and first in 2001 and 2002. BYU Coach Patrick Shane commented, “We look forward to the opportunity to showcase our team in our home state. This relay presents an interesting and challenging format that will be good preparation for our team’s upcoming season in which we look forward to again competing for the national championship.” Registration can be completed online or by mail at <www.wasatchbackrelay.com> For more information, contact Race Director Dan Hill at (801) 633-5984 or <firstname.lastname@example.org> or Race Developer Tanner Bell at (801) 860-0233 or <email@example.com> MEMORIAL DAY CEMETERY SCHEDULE May 31 2004 Each year on Memorial Day, the American Legion Ogden Valley Post 129 holds Military Honors Memorial services at five cemeteries.
