What People Are Saying About InnerSource Wellness Center

Prior to coming to InnerSource Wellness Center I experienced a severe ringing in my ears.  But I quickly discovered that as soon as I come into the center and relax in the peaceful and tranquil environment the ringing stops and I feel the energy flowing in my ears and calmness permeates throughout my entire body.

I have received a lot of wisdom and knowledge from Justin and Melvina in regards to the benefits of Qigong, Meditation and Reiki.  And I have taken part in the Monday Evening Meditation and have also experienced Qigong classes with Justin and Reiki with Melvina here at the center, which have proven to be of great benefit for me.

I fully intend to continue utilizing the various services at InnerSource to help support my journey and am so very thankful to have found such a delightful and pleasing space to work on my well being.

I made a random Reiki appointment for my partner when she was in treatment for a brain tumor.  It was a spur of the moment thing, and I couldn’t have expected what we have received.  We have participated in Reiki, Meditation, and Tai Chi.  Inner Source Wellness is a treasure trove of knowledge, experience, and compassion.  The Center is stunning.  Every leaf in the garden is touched with light, every petal with love.  The staff has shared with us endless time, support, enthusiasm, and kindness.  We are grateful.

I had been plagued with problems with my sleep patterns for some time and so my lovely wife scheduled  an appointment at InnerSource Wellness Center for a special treatment with Melvina B.  Her expert therapeutic management of my needs allowed me a much deeper understanding of my erratic sleep problems and also offered me the opportunity to experience total and complete relaxation.  I would strongly suggest anyone experiencing sleep problems make a point to come see Melvina.

Nothing feels better than having a special massage by Melvina B.  She brings a unique vibrational insight and wisdom to her service.  She possesses a spiritual, metaphysical gift that allows her to provide just the right strokes your body needs in the massage experience.  I highly recommend her massage and her Center for offering a full array of holistic health programs and practices.

Amid the stress of everyday life, the InnerSource Wellness Center is my oasis.  The center hosts a weekly meditation session which is a wonderful way to get back to one’s center.  The wellness center has helped me to develop my spirituality and grow as an individual. The team has enabled me to step outside of my comfort zone and explore many new possibilities.  I am grateful that I found the center.

Sanctuary, Oasis, Blessing, Treasure – even these don’t completely describe the experience I have had at InnerSource.  The myofascial sessions with Dave McDowell heal and enlighten beyond any traditional massage, acupuncture or western medicine treatment I’ve had.  His compassion and the energy he transmits renew; I enter like humpty dumpty and leave whole and transcended.  Melvina has created the physical manifestation of peace – it is worth every minute of the 40 minute drive up from Middletown just to be on the premises.  I am so very grateful to both of them.

When I moved from New Jersey to Delaware I was sad to leave behind a group of great therapists, with whom I worked and became good friends. When the Inner Source Wellness Center opened I was ready to go back to a life style that encompasses a healthy nutrition with yoga, Tai Chi and energy work. I had never dreamed  of finding such a gem…..five minutes from my house !!!! From the beautiful grounds around the center to the interior space, Inner Source Wellness Center offers an oasis of tranquility and positive energy.

As I mentioned before, I worked with a couple of practitioners over the years and I can say without any doubt that Melvina is the best. She integrates cranio-sacral therapy, myofascial release and energy work in her treatment and after having a session with her I always feel like a new person: calmer, energized and ready to go. I suffer with fibromyalgia and sometimes the amount of pain is insurmountable. Melvina works magic and only after one session I feel so much better. Thank you,

I was blessed to have my Akashic Record reading by Deborah G.  I knew virtually nothing about the Akasha, but Deborah walked me through it every step of the way.  She explained the process for her readings, gave me guidance that helped me tremendously in formulating my questions, and has helped clarify the information she was given on my behalf.

It’s been two months and I can honestly say that it was the most transformational experience of my life.  I was given answers to challenging existential questions that I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember.  I followed up my initial reading recently with a workshop at IWC, Introduction to the Akashic Records I, which I drove nearly 5 HOURS to attend!  And I brought a friend who’s having her first reading soon.

I will always be grateful to Deborah and Melvina for sharing this precious gift with me. In particular, I appreciate and respect the deep respect and reverence they bring to this sacred knowledge.   Their steadfast encouragement and support has made this sometimes difficult journey easier for me.  I’m grateful to be sharing it with them.

Inner Source Wellness Center provides a new sanctuary in Pike Creek for meditation in the beautiful gardens backing up to Carousel Park, classes like yoga and tai chi, as well as massage and other injury manipulations inside the peaceful space.

I have benefitted from yoga classes given by Charlene Sams.  She has tailored my practice to encourage healing of my injured shoulder, noting changes from class to class.  What a difference you will experience here in this peaceful space vs large, group classes in gyms!

Barbara G. (Wilmington, DE)

After years of traditional medicine, countless doctors’ visits, medications, MRI’s and the prospect of an ankle replacement I decided that I had to pursue new alternatives. When I started seeing Dave McDowell for Myofacial massage therapy, I was on crutches and unable to walk due to osteoarthritis in both ankles. In addition, I had been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. Thankfully, with Dave’s work in keeping my body aligned, I was able to dodge surgery and ditch the crutches. I will be forever grateful for his physical and emotional support.

Coming to Inner Source is a wonderful experience. Melvina has created a truly wonderful place for healing both mind and body.

“When I walk into the Wellness Center I leave the stress and concerns of my daily life behind. It doesn’t matter if I’m walking through the gardens or taking one of the many classes they offer, I put the every day pressures on hold and truly relax for a while.The staff is always willing to talk or just let you meditate on your own. I would recommend the Wellness Center to anyone who would like to slow down the outside world and reconnect with their life.”

“I have visited Innersource Wellness Center on multiple occasions and have truly enjoyed every visit!  Most recently I attended the Sound Painting (Vibrational Expressions) class. It was wonderful, the perfect blend of creativity, mindfulness, and relaxation. The bodywork I have had at IWC has been spot on, I felt relaxed, refreshed, & recharged afterwards. I have also spent time in the Healing Gardens at IWC. The gardens are the perfect place to peacefully meditate and reflect in beautiful surroundings. All of the staff at IWC are amazing as well, very warm and welcoming. I hope everyone has a chance to experience all IWC has to offer. Thank you for having such an amazing facility for all to start, & continue on, their healing journeys. ”

The Practitioners at Innersource are very warm and caring people.   The yoga teachers are very knowledgeable and I always leave class with a sense of peace and well being.
