Wu has published over a dozen books and multiple articles on TCM. Dr. Wu is active in his professional service to the acupuncture community on the national level and has been a past commissioner of the NCCAOM the chairman of NCCAOM’s Chinese Herbology Examination Development Committee, and the chairman of the Asian Bodywork Examination Development Committee.

Additional info: In Chinese medicine, the face and head are considered as the converging place of yang and the facial acupuncture is very unique, requesting more skillful techniques as it can easily cause bruise and hematoma because the face has more capillaries and the facial skin is much softer and thinner with more superficially located nerve endings. Through demonstration and supervised practice, this facial acupuncture lecture provides students with unique methods and techniques to prevent these risks. In addition to the lecture, students can sign up for the specialty clinic at AOMA to continue improving their needling methods. Also, this course is approved by the American Acupuncture Counsel (AAC), which is the major acupuncture malpractice insurance in USA. This means that AOMA students/alumni who buy their malpractice insurance and then their facial acupuncture practice is covered by the malpractice insurance after they successfully pass this course.
