I was born in a traditional fishing village on China’s eastern shore, where the sunlight first touches the Chinese mainland. At an early age I committed myself to the pursuit of the ancient arts of internal cultivation: Qigong, Taiji, internal martial arts, Chinese medicine, Yijing science, FengShui, Chinese astrology and cosmology, Chinese calligraphy and traditional Chinese music.
Since 1988, I have synthesized wisdom and experience for beginning and advanced practitioners, as well as for patients seeking healing, in my unique and professionally designed courses and training programs. I have authored numerous articles and 14 books (5 in Chinese) on China’s ancient life sciences.

I am a U.S. licensed naturopathic physician (a primary care physician who specializes in complementary and alternative medicine) and a published author of medical texts.
With the strengths of modern science and ancient wisdom to draw on, I combine recommendations for breath work, nutrition, movement, and sleep habits with natural therapies (including herbal medicines, infoceuticals, homeopathy, hydrotherapy and craniosacral therapy), into individualized, earth-friendly health plans targeted towards revitalizing the body, balancing the mind, and uplifting the spirit.
Master Wu’s teachings have improved my life in profound ways and provided me with an experientially-grounded exploration of Chinese philosophy, symbolism, cosmology and medicine.
It took me a long time to decide which of Master Wu’s calligraphy I would hang in my meditation room. It was a difficult choice. They all have a powerful shamanic feel of primal simplicity, but also a lyrical elegance and sometimes a bit of whimsy.

The practices I have been taught by Master Wu have transformed me physically, emotionally and spiritually, and continue to do so. My life is immeasurably richer, and my understanding of the world enlarged through his wise teaching of this ancient Chinese wisdom.
After you have spent some time with Master Wu, you begin to realize that you are actually not in the presence of an ordinary person. As he shares and teaches, you begin to see a depth of knowledge that is uncommon even in the Qi communities he associates with. If you spend enough time with him, you will come to realize he is a rare and true man of wisdom. You see that his natural way with people, with changing environments and in diverse circumstances comes from his being in deep internal harmony with the Way known as “Tao.”
I was in my 60’s when I began this health journey with Dr. Taylor Wu. It was one of the best decisions and gifts I have given myself. She has provided me with exceptional health care.
I was taken on a deep healing journey when diagnosed with cancer at a young age and have discovered that the best doctors have a rare combination of compassion, wisdom, knowledge and skill. Dr. Karin Taylor Wu embodies all of these – I was incredibly blessed to have her guidance on my healing path. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dr. Taylor Wu, I would like you to know how much you have helped me. I have not had this much energy and overall sense of well being in a very long time, thanks to you. I am so glad you have come into my life.
Thank you, Karin! You feel like a saving angel for us. Your knowledge and experience has helped us when ordinary medical science has not been able to.
