The Made Well Center is a holistic wellness center in Wilmington, NC. We seek to educate, empower, and encourage others to live well and feel whole through a variety of opportunities to engage in healing.
Why the Made Well Center?
The Made Well Center for Wholeness is a holistic wellness center in Wilmington, NC that seeks to help individuals bridge the gaps in their healing.
We exist to see individuals thrive by offering a holistic approach to health and healing. We believe you were made well, and we want to walk this wellness journey with you. We believe we are all inherantly born with original paradise in body and mind, and the world weighs us down. Let us provide you with services that heal on all fronts.
The Made Well Center acknowledges that there are MANY factors that need to be in order for you to actually live well and feel whole. We believe in working with the WHOLE PERSON, and offering our clients multiple opportunities to engage in whole person healing. Our bodies and our minds want to heal, but we have to know how to use them to our advantage if we are going to heal in the right ways.
We have seen too many individuals seek help from therapists that do not have a discerning spirit, and quite frankly aren’t good with people. Well we are people, people and we believe people need people. Healing comes through connection, and if you aren’t truly connecting, you aren’t truly healing.
We also partner with a non profit called THIS WHOLE LIFE FOUNDATION to offer scholarship sessions for individuals ready to jump start their healing journey but may not have the necessary funds to do so.
Buffy Andrews, the Founder of the Made Well Center, has worked many years in crisis management services. She saw the desperate need for people to be educated about simple practices, and to be empowered to prevent their own crisis, enhance emotional stability, establish healthy identity and build better relationships, which lead her to creating this wellness center.
Our society tells us we treat our mind with a therapist, treat our body with a doctor, and treat our spirit with a preacher or guru. The truth is – our mind, body, and spirit are not void of one another. Each impacts, and effects the other constantly – which is why it’s so important to be able to receive services for all under one roof.

I really loved the Elevate training! Not only was I able to learn new material I was able to experience it and learn how to apply it to my own practice and my own life. I was able to spend my Saturday learning but also having fun in an interactive experience. I would definitely recommend this training to anyone in the field!
I had never done a private yoga session before, but I had pulled a muscle in my back and couldn't do everything that happens in a yoga class so I asked Buffy if she could do a private. We had an amazing session that had me stretching my back in ways that I couldn't for 4 weeks before this. Buffy gave great assists, and taught me lots of exercises to use for the future. The Lord is truly using Buffy to bring healing to many in mind and body. I am so thankful to have had this yoga session as my back made a swift recovery after it!
It was one of my first times trying yoga and Buffy was a great teacher full of insight and easy to understand. Buffy was a wonderful facilitator who made yoga fun and meaningful. It was a safe environment that was calming and at times full of laughter. The Made Well Center for Wholeness is the perfect place to refocus your mind, body, and soul.
After losing health insurance due to leaving employment that was detrimental to my mental health (with Buffy's guidance), I was sure that I would have to stop my weekly therapy sessions at a very vulnerable time. It pained me to have to choose between coverage/continuing therapy and leaving a working environment that was toxic for me with uncertain future employment prospects. This experience is not unique to me--many are negotiating their needs due to being uninsured or underinsured. The scholarship program enabled me to continue my weekly sessions, which have been absolutely vital for my growth over the past few months. I was able to begin EMDR with Buffy in the summer of 2019 to address my PTSD. With her guidance, and in a very short amount of time, I have grown to be in the absolute best and stable place I've ever been in my life. These funds were, with no exaggeration, absolutely life changing for me. I am certain I would not be in the place I am today without the scholarship program. And due to this growth, I have secured new employment and insurance to now cover my sessions. I hope to pay it forward so that others in vulnerable positions may access care.

Buffy gets it. She gets that life is crazy and hectic but also gets that people need space and guidance to unwind, grow and thrive. She gets that in order to be made whole, you have to care for your mind, your body and your spirit. She puts so much thought and time into planning her classes, gives personalized adjustments and variations to students, and utilizes one of her greatest spiritual gifts- creating epic playlists- who else plays Beyoncé, Hillsong and Frank Sinatra in the same class? Buffy asks students of all levels and backgrounds to jump in the deep end. Having someone that is so encouraging of trying new things is so empowering; you will be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a single yoga class. Whether I am taking a power flow class or a restorative slow flow, I always leave with my mind a little clearer, my body a little stronger and my heart a little fuller.
Buffy has a great spiritual aura and a positive energy about her that emanates to others. I've witnessed her make astounding differences in peoples lives — including my own. She is knowledgable, seasoned, creative, and diligent. She is willing to go out of her way for anyone as her main focus is what's best for the other person. Her ability to process through and work accordingly with therapy clients is impeccable. She is devoted to her clients and strives to see growth in everyone and everything she encounters.
Taking a few yoga classes with Buffy through the Made Well Center has shown me the power of listening to your body and how slowly working it out and simply stretching can make a world of difference in your breathing and stress levels. I personally struggle with anxiety and Buffy's faith based yoga is peaceful, inspiring and has helped me learn to breathe through things and to take my time. Yoga is an art that I have seen Buffy pour her heart and time into mastering, planing and equipping others not to just stretch but to listen to what's going on inside of us at the core. The classes Buffy offers at Made Well are nurturing and uplifting for any one that wants to try.
