Male, a handsome boy of nine years old. For some unknown reason, he was totally restless. Speech was almost nonexistent. When he first came into the clinic with his Mom, he was unable to walk straight, like a train off of its tracks. He could not seat himself and he tried grabbing everything that caught his attention. Western medications had made his limited speech stutter. But, with Dr. Wu's acupuncture in Santa Monica, he is changing everyday! Right now, he can, without assistance, sit himself and count to 20. His intelligence and comprehension is steadily improving. He says hello to Dr. Wu and shake hands with our staff like a gentleman. His mom wants him to go to school this fall. We are working hard toward that goal.
Over 20 years ago I visited a Chiropractor who instead of helping my posture, actually caused a pinched nerve in my neck. After this incident I have had numbness down my neck & arm, through to my fingertips. After seeking advise from a society of specialists – including Doctors, physical therapists, etc. the only treatment prescribed was for me to wear a cervical collar to immobilize my neck, which I did for over a year. After that I was told to wear it on a “as needed” basis. Several years later I dis-located my shoulder (on the same side) and was told that this was caused by weakness in my shoulder girdle from the original injury. Not only was this extremely painful, but since then I have constantly had to work at becoming stronger without re-injurying myself. This has been a constant battle. If I turn suddenly I am apt to re-injure the nerve. If I pick up something heavy (like a grocery bag) I can re-injure the shoulder… and so on and so on. I am usually in pain from one or the other, on pain killers, ice packs or heat treatments and immobile.
On a recent visit to Santa Monica a friend recommended that I consult Dr. Wu. He prescribed a series of 24 acupuncture in Santa Monica, Acupuncture in Santa Monica, Acupuncturist in Santa Monica Qi Gong, Acupuncture in Santa Monica. Acupuncture. Santa Monica, massage, and Qi Gong healing. The first few visits I was in pain so he worked to simply relieve it. As the treatments progressed I felt a movement of free-ness in my neck and shoulder area. At about the 18th session I noticed that shoulders had become “even” – the neck injury had caused one side to be ½ higher than the other! All of this was done with Dr. Wu’s special brand of gentleness, warmth, and healing energy. Although major adjustments have occurred in my body alignment, he never forced anything or was harsh in any way.
After a 3 month rest period I will return for 6 additional treatments. At that point Dr. Wu believes that I will stabilize and be able to maintain these changes on my own. In other words, after over 20 years I can go back to leading a pain-free normal life – Thank you Dr. Wu ! ! !

Daoist Recipe for the Depressed
It is important to say again and again the nature
has its weight on one's emotion and there is way
of dealing with it.
June 20th—— just 2 days before summer solstice
where the magnetic pull from the Sun, Moon and
Earth are at its strongest yet human's emotion
most vulnerable- Daoist monks in white-cloud
7~8 fresh strawberries (with leaves)
1/2 ~ 1 full banana (do not peel-intact)
soak in water (1 flat tbsp salt solution)
after 4 hrs, between 11am - 2p,wash clean and eat the fruit, eat with an appreciating
type of attitude "I love my strawberries & banana."
Daoist believe even the slightest fruit has its spirit-
It is wise not to have skeptics type of attitude while
eating: "does this even work..."
It does, as the masters and monks epitomize
red strawberry as the sun, yellow banana as the
moon, while we eating them, a collision happens
between our inward emotion and outer environ-
ment, balance, illuminate, the nature devouring
away that emotion in power.
Health is ourselves. -Dr. Wu

Male, 39 years of age, diagnosed with prostate cancer approx. one and a half years ago. The result of PSA testing was 9.6ng/ml in March of 2002. Red and white blood cell counts were less than normal and his cancer had already metastasized into the lumbar spine. His physician told him he had only several months to live. Fortunately, he found Dr. Wu through a friend, a last hope. Dr. Wu performed an examination and told him if he followed his acupuncture treatment plan with consistency, he would have an excellent chance to recover from the cancer. After the first course of acupuncture treatment & practice of special qi gong exercises (over a one and half month course), his PSA level dropped to 4.0ng/ml (normal is < or = 4.0ng/ml). Everybody was pleasantly surprised. His physician could not believe it. Right now, he is in the second course of Dr. Wu's acupuncture treatment.

Script: "We studied the cupping sites on the back of Michael Phelps, as well as localized muscle groups. Not only did it (cupping) stimulate the acupuncture points, but also sundry muscle groups. However, the most important thing we should know is that, all these spots were lining on bladder channel. You know, there are no channel, amongst all other channels, that can both have this much empowering energy, and transforming our immunity to its pinnacle, as bladder channel. To this day, Chinese medicine- acupuncture, cupping, massage, as a conduit for health promotion and prevention, has grown deeply into westerns' lives."
