Wu Di
Wu DiFully qualified practitioner of Chinese medicine and member of professional bodies

As the main practitioner of the clinic, I obtained my PhD and started my first career as a medicinal chemist. Having worked as a research scientist on anti-oxidant and Parkinson’s disease in Cambridge, it was the beauty of the Chinese philosophy and Chinese medicine that attracted me to make a life-changing decision.

With strong family background of Chinese medicine and deeply rooted belief of Chinese philosophy, it has been a great joy to study Chinese medicine following different masters and mentors. Solid knowledge and years of experience on chemical drugs has (unexpectedly) offered an important and unique angle to view the human health from both conventional medicine and Chinese medicine.

As a fully qualified practitioner of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and massage, I am the full member of British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (ATCM). All my treatments are fully insured.
If we do not have knowledge, we can learn; if we do not have qualification, we can get one, but what is really unique and makes a practitioner different from others is the heart he gives to his patients.


So happy to have found this clinic. I had 5 treatments over a few weeks and the improvement has been incredible. Thank you Wu Di

I have found the care and treatment at Herbs Kingdom to be remarkable. I have visited a lot of acupuncturists over the years, but Dr Wu at Herbs Kingdom has been the most help of all. It is a wonderful treatment centre and I am very happy to share my endorsement with all.

(LG), September 2014

I have seen Wu Di for many things over a number of years, and have always been cured without the use of drugs (just natural herbs). Although not the quick fix that Western Medicine is, it does take more time, but the results are better, i.e. the cause is cured, not just the symptoms. The latest saga was a hurt knee from skiing (splits a ten year old would be proud of) Was very sore and in a knee brace when I first saw Wu Di and nearly skipped out after the first round of acupuncture. I have seen him once a week, then once a fortnight, and last Sunday managed to run for an hour, and now been given the all clear, and can’t recommend Wu Di highly enough! Thanks Wu Di your great!

Dr Wu has helped us through his meticulous and caring approach where the health service has been unable to deal with our problems. His skills both with herbal treatments and acupuncture / massage are to be commended.

CA & EB, September 2014

I have been seeing Wu Di for numerous different ailments since I moved to Hove, in particular my tennis elbow which was causing me pain for nearly a year and is now virtually gone after only a few treatments. Wu Di is very caring, professional and has huge expertise. Thank you Wu Di!

MH, August 2014

Excellent… don’t waste your time going to your GP and head straight to this Chinese Medicine Clinic!

(August 2014)


Wu Di is absolutely excellent! Helped me through a very stressful time and back to full health. The acupuncture is surprisingly relaxing. Highly recommend.

LW, July 2014

A must for me now and again to restore some balance and re-energies. Would definitely recommend.

SM, June 2014

Really helps with all those things western medicine can’t seem to sort out and naturally.

JL, June 2014

I took my daughter to Herbs Kingdom. She was born with an ear infection, and went on to have an ear infection every 6-8 weeks. At 4 years I took her to Herbs Kingdom and she was treated with herbs for a couple of weeks. The ear infections stopped instantly, and she has never had another ear infection. She is now 16.
Wu Di has also treated me for numerous ailments over the years I have been seeing him. I would always choose him before my GP. Thanks Wu Di.

SS, May 2014

Herbs Kingdom is a very friendly and professional clinic. I have been treated by Wu Di over a number of years. He has helped me through panic attacks, chronic fatigue and a nervous breakdown. I am now able to function normally. He is a caring man and an excellent herbalist and acupuncturist. I would highly recommend him.

JW, April 2014

Best pain treatment you can get!! Very good!!

LS, March 2014

I can’t recommend Wu Di at Herbs Kingdom enough. He listens to you, is very thorough, there is never any hard sell or pressure to book follow up appointments, & he makes you feel totally comfortable & completely at ease. I was visiting for early pregnancy nausea, & I can honestly say, that he made a time when I felt awful, so much more bearable….his treatment really does work. I will be recommending him to everyone! Thank you Wu Di

Wu Di is very considerate, easy to talk to and extremely professional. I have received acupuncture and massage for my back and neck, and have been very pleased with the results – along with an amazing overall sense of relaxation! Wu Di very clearly explains what you’re experiencing and the treatment he recommends. I have also been taking some herbs – all individually prepared to fit my personal needs. As a result I have felt more balanced, both emotionally and physically, and experienced better overall health and wellbeing than I have in some years. Wu Di is an excellent Dr of Chinese medicine and I would highly recommend him to everyone!

Just amazing! Wu Di is so so caring!! After over two years trying to conceive unsuccessfully I saw Wu Di on two occasions for acupuncture and fell pregnant during that time! I have a beautiful, healthy one and a half year old girl and I am so grateful for his wisdom and comfort.

Wu Di is both compassionate and professional. The five star reviews don’t lie. Recommended.

C.J. , 08/12/2018

Wu Di is amazing and I can’t recommend him highly enough. I have seen him for two pregnancies now and thanks to his treatments they have been easy and healthy pregnancies. His knowledge is very reassuring and his kindness very therapeutic. I think everyone that’s trying to conceive should visit as it’s a very positive way to start what can be a very stressful time

N.S., 14/10/2019

A gentleman full of knowledge. really explains the treatments and has such healing energy. A couple of treatments in and I already notice an improvement with my neck/shoulder. very grateful to have been recommend by a friend.

S.F, 08/07/2019

Excellent treatments. I always feel better, more energized and most importantly, I am in safe hands.

A.B. , 07/04/2020

Amazing treatment of acupuncture and massage. It always helps and is very relaxing. All the time they fix my problems. Very good, highly recommended!

L.M., 06/03/2020

I highly recommend Wu Di and the treatments offered at Herbs Kingdom, Hove. Suffering badly from a trapped nerve and RSI in my right arm and shoulder, I had tried everything: massage, chiropractors, hot/cold presses, yoga and anti-inflammatory tablets. Nothing really worked or felt like it was resolving the problem. After just one treatment of acupuncture and Chinese massage from Wu Di I felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and arm. I have seen Wu Di for 3 sessions over 3 weeks now and I feel my shoulder and arm are 70% better than when I started treatment. I will continue to see Wu Di monthly for as long as it takes to fully recover. It is reassuring to know I have found a practitioner who listens well and applies his knowledge and skills so effectively.
