Mogami 最上 Wellness: Our Mission

Updated: Sep 3, 2022

Our mission is to empower individuals to achieve sustainable personal wellness lives centred around longveity.Mogami 最上 translates to "highest level".

Our mission was one of the first things that came to life at Mogami.

There were 3 main themes within our mission.

1. Empowerment

It was clear that empowerment was a keyword - not inspire but empower. This was a significant difference to me as "empowerment" means you are helping individuals "reclaim their own power".

At Mogami, we respect every individual by remembering they have it within themselves, and it is not our role to tell people what to do. Instead, our part is to provide the education and space that allows each individual to reclaim their well-being.

2. Sustainable personal wellness

"Sustainable personal wellness" was the second key term - we are all different, meaning what works best for you may not work for me. At Mogami, we do not believe in "short-term fixes", "crash diets", or the idea that "faster is always better". Our wellness approach focuses on four main concepts that use the individual as the starting point to create a personal well-being lifestyle that will work in the long-term and be sustainable.

3. Longevity

"Longevity" was the last piece of our mission. Mogami leans on our Japanese cultural roots - as a country with one of the world's highest longevity and healthy life expectancies, we believe that these wellness practices can benefit individuals from all over the world.
