In order to better serve our fabulous clients, and our community, we’re growing into a new space and expanding our services!
The new location is 2 miles from the Gervais Street Bridge and 1 mile from I-26/Lexington Medical Center. It is near the entrance to the Riverbanks Botanical Gardens and next door to The State Farm Insurance Agency of Liz Portee. The building is formerly the home of the South Carolina Massage and Esthetics Institute. Our new building neighbors are Merry Maids and the Law Offices of R. F. Johnson Jr.
The Balance Institute is a massage therapy and personal training center that has been helping to restore health since 2001. While not a traditional gym or spa, clients are attracted to The Balance Institute for the one-on-one approach and friendly atmosphere they enjoy while heightening their level of health through our Personal Training and Massage/Bodywork Therapies. Our uniquely designed Center allows us to work with many clients each day without loosing that individual approach.
"In my 25 year career in healthcare, 90% of the people I've treated with exercise and/or massage therapy didn't care about running a marathon or having a sculpted body. They didn't want sore muscles and didn't want to be yelled at. They were just regular people who simply allowed busy years to pass without much body maintenence.
Once they felt the need to change they found themselves uncomfortable in traditional gym or spa settings. Medical conditions also caused many to seek trainers and therapists with advanced education and experience. It is our pleasure to offer to the greater Columbia, SC public, The Balance Institute." -owner, Jan Shaw, M.S., L.M.T.
