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. The treatment and prevention of these civilisation-related illnesses by a natural medical approach has been a challenging question that confronts many medical professionals. Wu’s Head Massage, a new specialised treatment and health care method, is a direct solution to these problems.

Wu’s Head Massage is also practised by assimilation of theories from Shaoling and Er-Mei acupoint pressure techniques, Qigong, and hypnosis. It adapts technique of original local head massage, then applying the standard practice movements, until the final enrichment steps refined what is now an established and completed set of treatment, that is set in full accordance to the professionally standard method.
