Under the influence of his father, who is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine professor in China, Dr. Yu started his early education in this field when he was only 5 years old. When he was 15, he was chosen as one of a few to enter Shaonianban, a special programme for gifted youngsters, at Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is an 8-year full-time programme, which included curriculum from Chinese medicine to western medicine, from acupuncture to herbal medicine, from practical skills to ancient classics. He started his practice in Qingdao Haici hospital in 1993. Later on, he completed his Master and PhD study. During his PhD programme, because of his excellent achievement, he won a scholarship from Hongkong Qiu Shi Science and Technologies Foundation in 2003.

He came to UK in 2004, practised in London, Manchester city centre, and Hale Altrincham. He currently practises in Sale, south Manchester.

With a special interest in neurological diseases, Dr. Yu has gained enormous experience in helping conditions such as Parkinson's disease, vascular dementia, stroke rehabilitation, multiple sclerosis, by using acupuncture and manual skills. Having developed and applied effective BSAT (Brain-Spine Activation Technique), Dr. Yu is able to offer comprehensive and high quality specialised health-care for memory and cognitive disorders, movement disorders etc.

BSAT is an integrated technique of acupuncture and manual skill. Based on traditional Jing Luo theory, combined with modern neuroanatomy and fasciology, this technique helps to improve brain blood circulation, regulate and restore nerve function, improve body immunity, it can be used in various disorders affecting the brain, spine and nerves. 

Dr. Yu has been educated in two disciplines – both TCM and Western medicine. His practice combines TCM with modern approaches. Chinese herbal medicine can be prescribed either separately or in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

In his spare time, Dr. Yu enjoys himself in ancient Chinese classics, such as Iching, Taoism, which help him understand Chinese medicine even better.

"We were willing to take a leap of faith and were reassured by Dr Yu's honesty and professionalism. Dr Yu was always happy to explain how the herbs and acupuncture worked and helped us understand as much as possible about the treatment ... Dr Yu was always very interested, reassuring and kind, and we trusted him completely."
