Dr. Tzong Jiunn Wu will talk about various forms of “Oriental Medicine” when he appears at the Emerald Coast Meditation Society on Sept. 22. Dr. Wu performs acupuncture at the Healing Art Acupuncture clinic on Hwy. 98 in Miramar Beach.

The free meeting will start with a silent 30-minute meditation at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church parish hall, at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion.

Dr. Wu will talk about not only acupuncture but also herbology, mixing different combinations of curative herbs to help a patient’s recovery. He began this experimentally when, during college, he nearly died from mold poisoning. Trying out various herbs on himself, he discovered which combinations could treat his condition and continued to pursue this aspect of his practice.

Born and raised in Taiwan, Dr. Wu graduated from college and was pursuing a career in medical research when he converted to Christianity. Somehow this compelled him to change direction – drastically, as it led him to Austin, Texas, to study at the Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. There he earned a master’s degree in traditional Oriental medicine, and was certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbology.

Dr. Wu is married with two daughters. He moved to this area in 2007 and, with a partner, founded Healing Art Acupuncture that year, but has since bought out his partner. He appeared at the ECMS in April, 2015, and taught the group how to do tai chi.

The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. Contact nancyjames@embarqmail.com for information.
