Wu Chinese Shamanism

When I was a child in China, I was curious about the way that local Wu (Chinese shaman) gave treatments to patients. How could an acupuncture needle release the pain when the Wu put it in a suffering patient's body? How could the Wu's chanting help patients recover from sickness? I came to understand more about Chinese medicine when I grew up, of course, but I did get answers to my questions in childhood. Still, I had more questions such as: What are meridians? What is an acupuncture point? Where did this knowledge come from? How did it come to us? Through years and years of Qigong practice, I got the answers to all of these questions. I understood that ancient Wu (Chinese Shamanism) is the root of Chinese culture, which includes Qigong and classical Chinese medicine. I felt that learning Wu could help me better understand Chinese medicine because Wu is more of a practical or experiential knowledge than learning through words alone. Words, however, may inspire and guide us to deepen our cultivation and practice. For this reason I want to share some Wu information through my writing.
