TBB- Total Body Balancing

TBB uses a gentle, rhythmic mobilization approach to relax the muscles, fascia, joints and ligaments. Circulation, nerve and energy flow are also improved with TBB. By introducing natural movement and rhythm to the body, TBB helps to calm down an overly stressed nervous system.

TBB expands on the work and teachings of John Wernham D.O. This approach incorporates the use of long levers such as arms. Legs, head, neck and torso to reduce lines of tension and to return the body to optimum balance, and alignment.

This whole body approach affects not only the musculoskeletal system but visceral, lymphatic, nervous, and craniosacral systems.

What is the Total Body Lesion?

TBB treats the body as a whole and addresses the Total Body Lesion. The Total Body Lesion is the sum of all imbalances or dysfunctions of your mind, body and spirit at a given moment in time. These Total Body Lesions are an accumulation of every car accident, sports injury, falls, surgeries, repetitive motions, ergonomics and stress. These Total Body Lesions are influenced by both internal and external factors including your mental stressors, emotions, thoughts and beliefs, and environmental influences. Each of these experiences and stressors has an effect on the physical body and health.

The practitioner uses gentle, rhythmic mobilizations of the arms, legs, head, neck and torso. The length of the session may vary from 30-90 minutes and frequency of treatment will be based on the recommendation of your practitioner. You can expect to feel decreased pain and body tension and an increase in relaxation, energy, mobility and balance following a TBB treatment.
