Thank you for visiting Wise MindBody Healing online! My name is Ethan Wise, a holistic mind-body therapy practitioner and mental health professional.
I had a dream of bridging the artificial divide between the body and the mind, this website and my practice is the answer. I collaborate with patients, clients, and other health practitioners who share a similar vision.
This page exists as a gesture of transparency and to allow those seeking to know more about me the answers they seek.
What I Do
I am your mind-body health practitioner, and mental health professional. My service is unique in that I address the mind and body at the same time to restore health. I meet you where you are and support your unique needs holistically; I support the whole you: Mind, body and soul as needed, in a completely customized manner rarely found elsewhere. I bridge the artificial divide between the body and the mind. Blending the best of the approaches to balance the mind & emotions along with body chemistry, structure and energy.
Most my clients see me when everything else has failed because the blend the I utilize offers a true holistic care. By balancing the mind, body and energy the whole of you will be balanced and natural healing is restored. We also end pain and suffering utilizing mental and physical approaches.
I offer a unique blend of mind and body therapeutic methods that empower my clients holistically. The future of medicine is mindbody medicine, while many wait for mainstream allopathic medicine to catch up, I decided to bring the practical knowledge and skills, and make them available to people right now.
There is no shortage of research or evidence to the efficacy and effectiveness of nutrition (known as orthomoleculat nutrition or functional medicine), hypnosis, and hands-on work. There is however a severe shortage in the practice of truly holistic healing that looks at a human truly holistically.
The mind and body impact each other, and are in fact inseparable… helping the body can happen by balancing the body chemistry, but it also happens via mental work, and hands-on work. Your body stores trauma, emotions, and your gut and heart are minds of their own.. your body is a mind, and your mind is interwoven in the body.. Your entire being, as a human, is a system comprised of mind, body and energy.
In supporting hundreds of clients, I excel at paying attention to each unique individual tailoring our work specifically to each person.
I take pride in utilizing absolutely the best of the modalities (therapeutic approaches) along with the best of technology, nutrition, herbs that are clinically proven to work.
My work brings together the mind, body, and energy; it brings together the science and art of healing. I offer and draw from carefully selected modalities, techniques and technologies that my clients have benefited from the most.
Blending and utilizing the best methods which are science-based, evidence-based, research supported, backed by clinical evidence. This blends energy science, herbalism, orthomolecular nutrition, mental health, and selected wisdom from ancient and traditional healing practices. My holistic approach offers more options and value to my clients. Rather than asking you to conform to one therapeutic approach I customize my practice, I make available multiple therapeutic methods, to provide you maximum care and benefit.
Why I Do Healing Work
There is a dire need for holistic care. A natural healing approach that addresses a human being for who they are, a holistic system. You are not a collection of chemicals or organs put together, nor are you a body with a mind. We are made up of all of these. Currently, the conventional approach addresses symptoms, focuses either on the body, or the mind but rarely addresses both.
A paradigm shift is needed, I decided to be the change that I want to see in the world. The fact that doctors and psychotherapists send me their tough clients and those who are stuck, not healing, or continue to suffer despite medications and other interventions speaks volumes to the effectiveness of the “truly holistic” approach. I do what I do to offer a more complete approach to healing.
If someone told you that you have to live with your pain, or discomfort (be it emotional or physical), I am here to tell you now that you have a third option! Yes, you have the option to “live with the pain”, or to “die”… Your third option is or to “live pain free!” I specialize in helping clients restore balance.
We will empower your innate intelligence and ability to heal. It is our birth right to have a healthy mind and body, and to live fulfilling lives.
I empower you to discover what your own body & mind need to restore balance, health and happiness; also to age gracefully, defeat (mind & body) dis-ease states, and remove emotional trauma, negative beliefs and harmful substances in the (physical, emotional, and energetic) body. Why? because this approach works.
When the body is balanced, the body heals itself. The mind-body posses innate wisdom and intelligence, they are designed to heal, and always strives to heal every day. Toxicity, deficiency, imbalances, physical, environmental, mental or energetic compromise our ability to heal.
I do what I do because every client counts, because you deserve to be offered value, methods and tools that work, because you deserve to live pain-free, free of suffering, and to have a better & higher-quality life experience!
I do what I do because you (my patient) matter!
My practice is about you, and exists to help you.
Why A Mind & Body Practice?
In our modern world we suffer a disconnect from holism. I see the mind and body as one, a system that is interconnected and practically a unit. To define the words loosely I will begin with “Mind”. Mind comprises thoughts, emotions, trauma, memories, beliefs, habits, emotional pain, obsessions, anxiety, emotional energy, self-talk, conscious and subconscious. The “body” is what people view as the physical aspect of you, the human body itself, with issues such as toxicity, deficiencies, pathogens, inflammation, physical dis-eases, physical pain. When appropriate I ]include the “energy” aspect of you. I bring together the best of the best of the tools and methods, to help all the parts that make you whole, to support you as a whole, to discover and eliminate the true root cause of your discomfort!
Many offer one modality only, a one-size fits all approach to healing. Throughout the years, I realized the limitations of that approach. Due to necessity, I acquired knowledge and skills that allowed me to offer a unique service, a more well-rounded customized service that allowed me to work with you holistically.
Rather than asking my clients to fit into my practice, I customize my offerings to fit my clients’ needs!
When the body is balanced, the body heals itself. The mind-body posses innate wisdom and intelligence, they are designed to heal every day. Toxicity, deficiency, imbalances, whether physical, environmental or mental compromise our ability to heal.
I follow the MindBody holistic model of health care because this approach works.

What matters is getting results,
I help you see positive results. Call me by my name, because I don’t believe in titles that separate humans into different categories, just as I don’t separate the mind from the body, I see every human (that includes you) as worthy, infinite in potential and equally valuable.
With over 7 years of experience in the holistic Mind & Body healing realm, I apply my passion, my dedication, care, time and skills to support you. While I utilize my knowledge, skills and tools, I allow your own body and unconscious mind to guide you. My role being a partner and consultant. Your own healing will be guided by your own unconscious mind, and your own healing will spring from within you.
My work is my personal and spiritual mission, this is why I became an ordained minister, since helping people heal both mind and body and restoring balance to both mind and body are my mission and ministry. I bring a wide range of tools to the table and meet you exactly where you are, I adapt our approach and tools to help “you” find hope, make progress, heal, and find peace.
Scroll down for a list of all my affiliations, memberships and qualifications.
I draw on a wide range of skills and extensive training including energy psychology, energy medicine, mind/body work, epigenetics, herbalism, detox, weight reduction, anti-aging, pain management, and nutrition health research.
I drawn on my vast knowledge of herbs and functional nutrition, along with anti-inflammatory therapy and detoxing, energy psychology, pain reduction, and others; however, more importantly, I am able to communicate directly with your body and with your subconscious (or unconscious) mind; we allow them to express what you need.
Your subconscious mind is an expert on what is behind an imbalance in your body, and it also holds all your unconscious and energetic programming. I don’t guess at what your body or mind need, I allow you to see and hear the answers for yourself.
I do not diagnose or tell you what to do. I help you listen to your body instead. I have developed gentle and easy protocols and systems based on my knowledge and experience for specific conditions, from there we hone-in exactly at what you need, and customize our approach to you, by listening to your subconscious mind and body.
My skills allow me to help “you” ascertain exactly what your body and mind need and what the root causes of your discomfort, pain (emotional or physical) and dis-ease are. I help “you” discover these using my skill in applied kinesiology and with the cooperation and permission of your own unconscious mind.

I do what I do because you (my client) matter!
My practice is about you, and exists to serve you.
You can do it – Wise MindBody Healing can help!
My approach as a healing professional, is that I will meet you at your own playing field. I honor and respect your own path no matter what that entails. My only focus and goal is helping you. I meet you exactly where you stand, with your permission, I extend my arm, and walk with you, pull you up, or offer loving support. As a professional healer I am not in the business of judgment, on the contrary, I only hold love in my heart, acceptance, humbleness and the desire (and skills to be able) to help you.
Every one is unique. I work with anyone who is ready to see results, as a consultant and partner in your (mind & body) healing. I work ‘with’ you, not ‘on’ you. My focus is “health” and restoring health states rather than on diagnosing or focusing on dis-ease. My focus is to enable your innate ability to heal.
I make no promises of specific outcomes, as outcomes vary for each individual. Despite our shared humanity, we all have unique physiology, chemistry, energy, beliefs, pasts, realities, paths, choices, experiences and perceptions that are truly unique to us, every person’s experience working with me will be equally unique to them.
I am ready to support you in whatever transition, changes, or healing work that you seek.

When Not Helping Clients, Researching or Studying
When I am not at graduate school, working with a client, leading a meetup, preparing for a workshop, or giving a talk, you find me studying a myriad of health related topics, maintaining my old farm house and land. When I am not doing that, I spend time with friends, loved ones and alone. Walking in nature, gardening, harvesting wild and domesticated plants, cooking, meditating, practicing muscle testing (of course!), practicing QiGong, finding beauty, enjoying nature photography and creating mixed media art.
My Clients’ Demographics
About 60% of my clients are female, 30% are adolescents, 10% elderly, the majority with psychological stress are high functioning individuals.
I help business owners, sales professionals, countless parents (both moms and dads), children, new moms/postpartum, single moms, single women/ men, couples, newly divorced, alienated parents, caregivers, trauma survivors, new business owners, immigrants, individuals facing change, transition, loss, grieving, and people from all walks of life. I help clients ages form 16 to 85+.
Most my clients find me via word-of-mouth. I do offer referral incentives to help more people come and see me. Ask me about our referral incentives.
I do refer out clients out to chiropractors, homeopaths, or physicians and other healing professionals as needed. I work with a couple MD doctors for doctor orders when needed.
Many of my clients were referred to me by doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and mental health counselors/psychotherapists. Many also find me online and via the word of mouth from my existing clients.
I do not diagnose nor treat medical conditions*. My work is cognitive-behavioral therapy, it is result and action-focused rather than disease-focused. I work with your body, mind, and with your health-care provider to improve your chances of achieving the best possible and favorable outcomes, manage side-effects, achieve positive changes, remove trapped emotions and negative beliefs, and heal on all levels of your being, mind, body and spirit.
By balancing the root causes, we unleash the power of your innate intelligence which is capable of achieving miracles.
*- While at Life Medical, I diagnose patients.
I wish you the best in improving your overall quality of life!
