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.

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 Xiangqi 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 travelled 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 Shidexing 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 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.

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.

It was a pity, however, that during its introductory period overseas, his foot massage therapy was quickly absorbed, dismembered and differentiated by the Reflexology School due to lack of Chinese Medical theory and sufficient strategies in marketing and planning. In contrast, the Wu’s Head massage gave birth to fruitful results due to Professor Wu’s hard work and dedication of over ten years. The healing principle of the head massage is in accordance with a systematic traditional Chinese medical theory; the application of the standard practising movements and the supplement of Five Organs Tea (enhancer for the five different internal organs namely the heart, liver, spleen, lung and kidney) all combined to perfect and lengthen each supplement’s effectiveness. In 2009, after years of research, under the leadership and Guidance of Professor Wu, the medical experts of The Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine invented the famous “5 Elements Massage & Acupuncture Therapeutic System”. Wu’s Head Massage registered its intellectual assets worldwide to protect its right.
