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 hospital in 1993. Later on, he completed his Master and PhD study. He came to UK in 2004, and currently practises in Sale, south Manchester and Cheshire area.

As a qualified, professional practitioner, Dr Yu has a wealth of experience in treating various health problems. In particular, he has expertise in fertility, gynaecological, rheumatological, immunological problems. Dr. Yu is well-known not only for his sophisticated way of using Chinese herbal medicine but also for his philosophical way of understanding health issues.
