A type of hands-on therapy developed in 1975 by an American physician, F Smith, the purpose of which is to align the body’s energy with its physical structure through the use of gentle pressure. According to Smith, two forms of healing occur after injuries: that of the physical body, and that of the energy field of the physical body. Proper healing requires that the relationship between the two must be brought back to “zero”.
