He was born in the Fujian province’s capital city, Fuzhou, raised in a family whose business was in traditional Chinese medicine for four generations, combining the medicine systems from Taoist and Buddhist (South Shaolin Temple) practices.
Since the early 1900’s, Wu’s great-grandfather, an imperial palace physician of the end of the Qing Dynasty, provided traditional Chinese medicine treatments – acupuncture, Qi Gong therapy, massage and herbal medicine. He treated chronic illnesses from a clinic, Ancestral Chinese Medical Therapy, in China which was later operated by Wu’s grandfather and uncle. From this upbringing, Wu was immersed in the numerous ways of Chinese medicine and learned exclusive techniques in Qi Gong therapy, massage, acupuncture and herbal medicine passed on from generations.
To continue the family tradition and practice, Wu studied traditional Chinese medicine at the local university, Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Fuzhou.
