Debra-Jean LeBrun’s ability to listen to her clients and their tissues allows her to create individualized sessions to support her clients’ needs and concerns. At Balance Within, the bodywork she offers includes more than massage. Her main focus is healing with a gentle touch, whether a client is experiencing physical pain or emotional pain. Since Debra-Jean’s services work on and with the central nervous system (CNS), bodywork can address both physical and emotional pain, as they are greatly intertwined. Debra-Jean’s clients report gaining a deep sense of relief and feeling “profoundly relaxed” after treatment in her clean, comfortable studio space.
A skilled healer who combines professionalism with comprehensive knowledge and an intuitive ability to sense and assess a client’s condition, Debra-Jean puts professional expertise and compassion to work for her clients. At Balance Within, her main practice is Craniosacral Therapy (CST), which helps clients with chronic pain and other neurological conditions, and also helps improve sleep. She offers Manual Lymphatic Drainage for health as well as pre-surgical and post-surgical treatment to reduce swelling, tension, and stress. Debra-Jean offers therapeutic massage and orthopedic massage for clients who have had an injury and experience chronic pain. She also offers Visceral Manipulation and Cupping.
Debra-Jean is a Licensed Massage Therapist and practitioner of Craniosacral Therapy with specialized training in Vacuum Therapy, Scar Release and Scar Release for Burn Survivors, Lymphatic Drainage and Balancing, TMJ Relief, Oncology Massage and Orthopedic Therapeutic Massage. Debra-Jean works with post-surgical healing to reduce swelling and minimize restrictions created by internal and external scar tissue. This includes work on clients who have undergone mastectomy and breast reconstruction. Debra-Jean initially trained in Sports Massage, Myofacial Release and Polarity Therapy. She continues to broaden her education with a focus on reducing soft tissue pain and increasing mobility and motion.
Beginning her bodywork career in the late 1990s, Debra-Jean earned her aesthetics license in Massachusetts in 1998 and subsequently graduated from the Catherine Hinds School of Esthetics in 1999 with a Certificate for Medical Aesthetics (now called a Certificate for Master Aesthetician due to changes in state regulations).
She then worked 10 years in a local plastic surgeon’s office practicing customized and quality skin care along providing with specialized massage treatments. She opened Face Rejuvenation and Healing Massage in 2013, and then launched Balance Within at her current location at the Cummings Center in Beverly, MA in 2018.

Charlie joined the staff of Balance Within as of December 12, 2016.
Charlie is the Welcoming Committee. He takes pride in being hypo-allergenic and greeting everyone. He strives to set a peaceful tone and help people feel at ease.
Charlie places a great importance and value in relaxation and leisure time. As in any family business he takes advantage of the boss. There are days when he does not show up for work, he never answers the phone and of course, when he does decide to come to work he can be found sleeping on the job and snoring away.
