Jacob Wenger understands the power of balance. Over the past decade, he's tempered his time on the East Coast with study on the West Coast; he's offset his upbringing in the western hemisphere with the pursuit of wisdom in the eastern hemisphere. His globetrotting worldliness—which has led him to places as diverse as Shanghai, India, San Francisco, and Michigan—is now anchored in Massachusetts, where Jacob is a licensed practitioner of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
Using superfine needles, he realigns energy pathways to quell maladies as diverse as insomnia, anxiety, and compulsive thinking. Jacob also applies Japanese reiki techniques that aim to reduce stress and promote healing. Under master trainer Simu Min Ou Yang, he studied Qi Gong—a choreographed blend of breathing patterns, whole-body movements, and meditation—and now he passes on this knowledge in private lessons that, like most games of tic-tac-toe, are 60-minutes long.
