Bushido Wellness was started in 2005 as a way for Nathan Mills to offer all of the healing modalities of his interest and study into one integrated practice. Through working with his own physical challenges and working privately with clients over the years using yoga, martial arts, nutrition, touch therapy, and energy work, Nathan and Heather have done their best to create a system of self-care that is customizable to each individual to help support their unique needs to create a healthy lifestyle.
From a holistic standpoint, if we take our health and wellness first into our own hands by creating a lifestyle where our values line up with our actions then we create an atmosphere where our body, mind, and spirit can thrive in the continued responsibilities and challenges of daily living.
In order for any of us to thrive, we must be able to recognize where we are out of balance and begin slowly and methodically tipping the scales the other direction until balance and equilibrium are recovered. Whether your challenges are food related, fitness oriented, financial disorganization, relationship difficulties, creative blockages, or over-all dissatisfaction with any area of life this can affect the health, balance, and happiness of any individual.
At Bushido Wellness, we also recognize that everyone needs support and assistance at certain times. Our goal is to give our clients the support they need until they have enough tools to feel confident to do the majority of their self-care on their own.
Even after working in a nutrition program, we offer our clients continued support where they need it to maintain equilibrium, be it yoga therapy, martial arts and fitness training, massage and skin care, or quarterly nutritional counseling sessions for maintenance.
We also have a talented group of healers we can refer out to if your needs include a modality of healing we do not currently offer such as acupuncture, chiropractic, naturopathy, etc.
Our goal for Bushido Wellness is to improve the world around us by healing it one individual at a time. We believe that through our own individual self-care mentally, physically, and emotionally, we will create a ripple effect that will affect the lives of others. As an organization, our hope is to leave the world in better condition than we arrived in it. We believe life can be fun and enjoyable, and we should thrive and feel our best in the process!
