The Serenity Center of Summerville (SCS)


The Serenity Center of Summerville (SCS) is a nonprofit community center whose mission is to give back by providing complementary and alternative health services to the community. Our space is a sanctuary where you can come and relax, unwind and center your whole self. We want you to feel calm when you visit our studio. Everything we do has a foundation of serenity so that you can find peace within when you are here.

We believe that a holistic approach to feeling your best is paramount.

All of our offerings at SCS focus primarily on meditation, mindfulness, support groups and workshops. We aim to provide healing arts techniques so that you can experience a well-rounded approach to healing and well-being.


The healing arts are creative practices that promote healing, wellness, coping and personal change. These approaches combine artistic expression with psychological awareness and communication, and are led by therapists experienced in both areas.

The healing arts include all of the health sciences and forms of complementary and alternative medicine, as well as a host of traditional practices aimed to cure disease, heal injury and promote wellness. Each of these disciplines have well-developed associated bodies of knowledge. Their theoretical underpinnings range from biology to magic, and include many elements of both philosophy and religion.

In most cases, the practitioner of one of the recognized healing arts is licensed, certified, or ordained in some manner within his or her community, and publicly commits to a code of behavior that offers dedicated service to the client. There are legal restrictions placed on the practice of the healing arts, depending on the particular type and geographic location of practice.

Practices that are aimed to heal include non-invasive physical manipulations such as massage, the adjustments of the chiropractor, and the various talk therapies of the Freudianpsychiatristbehavioral psychologist and clergy.

Invasive practices in the healing arts include surgery as practiced by physicians licensed in medicine, but are not limited to these operations. Acupuncture involves minimally invasive techniques of placing needles. Traditional healers in West Africa who follow juju routinely use scarification and injections as part of their practice.

The healing arts involve the art of creating a harmony between the mind, the body and the spirit. Healing arts involve the interaction and manipulation of body systems using alternative, traditional and natural means or methods and/or alternative or complementary health sciences as means for pain and disease management. The healing arts involve a lot of traditional medicines and discipline, which may also require a certain degree of education as well as training. Healing Arts careers also employ and mix the various principles of biology, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, chemistry, herbal medicine, physical body manipulation and other sciences. 

The healing arts involve mind-body methods that operate on the principle of the ‘power of the mind’ in healing and employs methods that are more focused on spiritual, behavioral, psychological and social aspects.

Biologically based healing arts involve natural as well as organic and life-based methods, practices and materials. These healing arts are more focused on the utilization and manipulation of the environment, as well as products provided by nature.

The healing arts dealing with energy therapies are founded on the manipulation and use of energy fields inside and around the human body.

Get in touch:



Meditation brings us into a state of deep relaxation that can help us cope and feel connected with nature or a universal source of being.


Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, which one can develop through the practice of meditation and through other training.

Support Groups

In a support group, members provide each other with various types of help, usually nonprofessional and nonmaterial, for a particular shared, usually burdensome, characteristic. Members with the same issues can come together for sharing coping strategies, to feel more empowered and for a sense of community.


Workshops are brief intensive educational programs for a small group of people that focuses especially on a particular technique and/or skills.
