Practice style of David Wu.
David has had a strong interest in the methods of Eastern medicine since he was a child. He has been receiving treatments on his own since he was eight years old, while simultaneously watching and admiring the procedures of Chinese herbal doctors. As a result of these encounters, David realized that many more people could benefit substantially from such treatment. He became a professional and registered acupuncturist after combining his ambition to become fluent in the practices of Eastern medicine with an equally ardent desire to serve others.
David Wu, LAc can completely utilize acupuncture and osteopathic procedures since he has a solid understanding of the human body and its varied functions. David can use acupuncture and osteopathy to treat and resolve a variety of joint and muscle problems from various parts of the body. David’s unusual therapy procedures have had a lot of success, and he’s continually working on enhancing them.
During his sessions, David makes certain that he is fully informed of the situation and the practicalities around it. David is a perfectionist who wants to over-analyze every detail for his patients before undertaking any surgery. David seeks to understand what causes each illness so that he can eliminate the bacterium or disease at its source. Patients are prone to forgetting little details that can change the course of their diagnosis and treatment plan. David, on the other hand, considers all choices before making a decision and never overlook any tiny details.
The human body, according to David Wu, LAc, is an organic whole. Everything in our body, from the tiniest cells to the most complex working organs, collaborates and interacts to keep us alive. In a broader sense, humans live in harmony with nature and rely on a variety of natural resources to survive. Human actions have a direct impact on nature, and nature will respond to human actions. These reactions may have a positive or bad effect on our health. The human body is more than a biological entity; it is also a psychological and social entity that is continuously interacting with its environment. Societal position, economic status, occupation, ideology, educational background, and social ties all have an impact on one’s overall health.
David Wu, LAc. role at Philadelphia Holistic Clinic
Hu Dà Wèi, L.Ac is the best addition to our acupuncture staff, according to the Philadelphia Acupuncture Clinic. He will be in charge of supervising other acupuncturists at the organization and will report directly to our medical director, Victor Tsan, MD.
David’s understanding of traditional acupuncture, according to Dr. Tsan, will elevate our clinic to the greatest level of TCM therapy.
Unfortunately, in the United States, modern acupuncture is largely employed for pain relief and injury rehabilitation. Traditional Chinese Medicine, on the other hand, is far more effective for somatic illnesses like
- stroke rehabilitation,
- bipolar disorder,
- weight loss,
- lupus, and many more.
At Philadelphia Acupuncture Clinic, we assist our patients in identifying simple and reliable methods for reducing stress and treating a variety of acute and chronic medical ailments. We use a variety of acupuncture procedures, including traditional techniques and dry needling, as well as lifestyle changes and dietary counseling.
Our patients appreciate how we can explain the complexity of Traditional Chinese Medicine in easy-to-understand terms. We work hard to be a resource for our patients and believe that acupuncture may help people and families discover new ways to experience themselves.
