Information On Practitioners

Wade Childress
has been studying Jin Shin Jyutsu since 2000, originating his study with Self Help, learning with Heiko Schmidt and continuing with teachers Matthias Roth, Jed Schwartz and Adele Leas. He has been working privately since 2001 on a part time basis.

After studying with Adele Leas, he has become the “dog whisperer” at his “day job” and he worked on his own German Sheppard Shana until her passing at 17 years old.
Wade is the local practitioner at the Chicago office.
“Letting go and exhaling have been two of my greatest gifts.”

Jack Rost
has been studying “body work” since 1978. While he initially studied more standard methods such as massage, he was quickly drawn to alternative energy modalities. Jack was first introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu® in 1984 through a Self-Help book that was given to him. He used this simple study many times over the next 15 years.
During this time he continued his search for a modality that really ‘spoke’ to him.
In 1991, he met and studied with Daskalos in Cyprus, Greece (profiled in: “The Magus of Strovolos” by Kyriacos Markides). Jack studied additional methods such as Reiki, still searching for that modality that ‘spoke’ to him. In 1999 Jack met Jin Shin Jyutsu. Truly met it that is. After utilizing the Self-Help book given to him 15 years earlier, the universe presented him with the opportunity to study the philosophy that is Jin Shin Jyutsu. He immediately knew he had found ‘it’.
In 1999 Jack began studying and working under the guidance of Matthias Roth, one of the world’s prominent instructors of this Art. For several years, he traveled with Matthias throughout the United States providing treatments during Matthias’ seminars and expanding his knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Jack has his private practice in New York City and consults in Chicago. He continues to be a practitioner of this ancient Art, providing individual sessions as well as private consultations and classes. He remains a student of Jin Shin Jyutsu where he continues to learn to BE.

It is this office’s goal to bring the simple art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and the balance and harmony that is Jin Shin Jyutsu into people’s lives through individual sessions, counseling and self help and the organization of classes and continuing education.
