The Center…Life in Balance: Holistic Healing
According to the founders of The Center…Life in Balance, there are no coincidences. So it was no coincidence that Maryann Miller met Susan Drummond, an intuitive medium, Reiki Master and licensed massage therapist at a class at Camden County Community College. A simple encounter turned into a business venture that has helped each fulfill personal dreams.
“Susan has always had a dream of a wellness center and I’ve had a dream of creating a gathering space for people to meet, talk, grow and heal,” explains Miller, MEd, who became certified as a Heal Your Life teacher and in hypnosis, past life exploration and emotion code. “As Susan helped me with my own healing, we realized we resonated with each other on a deep level. Finally one day we looked at each other and asked, ‘Are we going to do this together?’”
They did just that in 2011, opening what was then called NJBalance Wellness Center, a warm, inviting, safe haven for all ages with the mission of providing services and classes to balance mind, body and spirit. They explain that for healing to be complete and lasting, it must take place on all levels while keeping each level in balance. As balance is achieved and maintained, true well-being can then exist within a person.
The Center seems to have taken on a life of its own. This has led to the center’s name change, now called The Center…Life in Balance. “We feel the name better reflects what we are all about,” says Drummond. “We continue to remain open to new healing modalities as well as welcoming in new associates and other professionals.”
They recently have added the BioMat to their existing offerings, which include massage therapy, Reiki, intuitive guidance, foot reflexology, chakra balancing, awareness coaching, meditation, drumming circles, silent suppers, monthly women’s sharing circle and Young Living Oils, among others. Coffee and tea are always available and the Lending Library is well stocked. The Shop at The Center holds an assortment of crystals, books, angel cards and jewelry, showcasing local artists.
“We don’t believe it will be a coincidence that you wander into this peaceful and joy-filled place of healing,” they share.
