Professor Wu was born in Harbin, China. After completing his secondary school at the age of fifteen, he followed his uncle to remote counties and worked as a bare-foot doctor. When universities were allowed to reopen in 1978, and entrance exams resumed recommencing, he applied for the programme of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Heilongjiang TCM University, China. After years of acquiring clinical experiences post graduation, he was accepted into the Department of Acupuncture Research in 1985, enrolling in the prestigious China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, thereby mastering in Qigong and Acupuncture from the highest recognised academy in China for traditional Chinese medical research. This medical program was a joint approval from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education. He then became one of the first three postgraduates of Medical Qigong who received a Master’s Degree in China and also internationally. Later on, he studied at Hebei Medical University and Henan Medical University of Transitional Chinese Medicine, and became a specialised doctor integrating both western and Chinese medicine. He also held the position of Deputy Director of the Acupuncture Research Department of the Heilongjiang TCM Institute and was the Dean of the Qigong Researching Department before going abroad.
During the pursuit of his studies, Bin Jiang studied under the tutelage of famous specialists in acupuncture, qigong, Chinese herbs and traditional Chinese medicine and acquired the kernel of their knowledge. The ex-president of the World Federation of Acupuncture Moxibustion Society, Professor Xuetai Wang was his instructor in acupuncture; the President of China Association of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Manipulation, Professor Ji Zhang, also imparted his knowledge to him in study; and the last follower of the founder Xiangzhai Wang of Da Cheng Quan and successor of Master Qianchuan Zhou of Er-Mei, the famous Traditional Chinese Medicine Qigong specialist Professor Guorui Jiao, was his Qigong instructor. In addition, the author of ‘Preventing of Cancer with Chinese Herb Therapy’ Professor Yongguang Li was also his palpation and Chinese herbs teacher. Wu upholds the philosophy of ‘Better travel ten thousand miles than read ten thousand books’ as his way of pursuing knowledge. On top of formal education and rigorous higher education, he traveled extensively a lot to absorb the best of what Buddhism, Taoism, and local native practices have to offer. The 31st generation monk in Shaolin temple of Mount Song-San, 90-year-old Master Shiwanxing and the contemporary famous monk doctor, Master Miaozan both became his good teachers and friends during his travels. From his youth, Professor Wu had already instituted a firm groundwork in Traditional Chinese Medicine. With several years invested in formal higher education, coupled with the ability to gather together the best from different specialists, Bin Jiang Wu laid a solid foundation for the development of Wu’s Head Massage. The potent combination of education, experiences and character endowed him to spread the traditional Chinese medicine to overseas and abroad, and to provide him a set of strong wings that continue to carry him to a prosperous future.
Since 1989 Professor Wu had visited almost twenty countries delivering a lecture series and treatment tour including Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, U.S., and Australia. Training over a thousand students greatly publicised and promoted the academy of traditional Chinese medicine overseas. His research papers in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and qigong had been circulated in many state-level publications. The reports from local newspapers, magazines, journals, TVs and radios have reached many countries. Professor Wu is an experienced traditional Chinese medicine specialist and also international TCM educator. His analytical mind, diligence in studying, daring in exploring new ideas, all enabled his unique Wu’s Head Massage to become popular in Europe, America and Asia.

With the development of high technology and the wide use of computers, more and more people are working in offices as ‘white collar professionals’. Such group includes programmers, secretaries, managers, bank clerks, accountants, lawyers, doctors, etc. As a result more and more people have suffered from different civilisation related illness. For instance, those sitting in front of the computer are apt to suffering from ‘computer syndrome’, an impediment characterised by vertigo, irritability, headache, visual fatigue and heavy shoulders. Also, those who live a fast-paced stressful city life are apt to suffering from the gastrointestinal irregularities, insomnia, etc. Those who drive often or sit for a long period in front of a computer at work, in front of a TV at home, and do less exercise are apt to suffering from neck diseases.
