Thank you for visiting Wise MindBody Healing online! My name is Ethan Wise.

What I Do
I am your “mind-body” therapist, and mental health professional. The service I offer patients and clients is unique in that we address the mind and body at the same time to restore balance, remove or transmute beliefs, trauma, and habits not only working cognitively, but also working with the subconscious and unconscious minds. In other words, we work with your mind, body, spirit, and energy.
I meet you where you are supporting your unique needs holistically; I support the whole you: Mind, body, energy, and soul as needed, in a completely customized manner rarely found elsewhere.
The future of medicine is mind-body medicine, while we wait for mainstream (allopathic) medicine model to catch up, I decided to be the change I wanted to see. I bring practical knowledge and skills, from the east and the west, from scientific literature and traditional knowledge, for the biology and the mind, and make these available to people right now.

Why I Do Healing Work
My path in life has allowed me to reach a place where I see no separation between mental health and physical health, mind and body, intention and reality, science and spirituality. I offer my clients true unconditional acceptance, this is referred to by many names across psychological theoretical orientations, cultures, and spiritual traditions, names including: radical acceptance, unconditional positive regard, non-judgment, understanding, acceptance, kindness, love, Christ consciousness, and holding a sacred space. I offer this to every client to enable healing.
I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. Mind-body healing, functional nutrition, nutrition for mental health, psychology, working with the subconscious mind and the body, helping you understand yourself your body and subconscious mind, helping people wake up their potential, lower suffering, lower pain, and feel empowered in the mind and body is what I spent most my time thinking about and researching. This is beyond being my profession, if I had to use words I would say it is my passion and my spiritual practice.
While there is an abundance of clinical research and evidence showing the efficacy and effectiveness of the techniques that I utilize, from nutritional to psychological, there’s a severe shortage in the availability of practitioners who address a human truly holistically.
I do healing work in order to make this world a better place, my focus is helping one person at a time. This is my philosophy, mission, and ministry.
I see every human (that includes you) as worthy, infinite in potential, divine spark of consciousness, with free will, and on a unique path.
However, please note, I do not offer medical advice and we do not cure any diseases.
You deserve to be offered options, methods and tools that are safe, ones that work, because you deserve to be heard, understood, you deserve to live pain-free, to reduce suffering, remove obstacles, remove toxins (of any kind), and to have a better quality life experience!
I do what I do because you 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, organism, a constitution with multiple interconnected systems.
The mind and body are intricately interconnected. Most medical professionals today focus on one organ, a system, or the symptoms neglecting in the process to notice the person behind these symptoms, the whole person.
I bring together a number of tools and methods, to help balance and empower the parts that make you whole, to support you as a whole, to help discover and eliminate the true root causes of imbalances.
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 with mental health work, with subconscious-mind work, by impacting the gut-brain axis, the autonomic nervous system, beliefs, and by impacting all of the autonomic functions of the body, not to mention feelings, beliefs, and habitual changes.
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 with your body.. Your entire being, as a human, is a system comprised of mind, body, and energy. I honor and work with your mind, body, and energy.
I follow the MindBody truly holistic model of health care because this approach works.

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.
