Zhichun Zhang

Zhichun Zhang graduated from Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and I am a registered acupuncturist with good standing with College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta.

Traditional Chinese medicine sees the body as a whole, so the initial consultation with a Chinese medicine doctor or acupuncturist covers every aspect of patients’ health condition, even the diet, bowel movement, sleeping quality, etc. We use 4 comprehensive diagnostic methods of Inspection, Auscultation and Olfaction, Inquiry and Pulse-taking to analyze the symptoms that patients are experiencing and the root causes of the problem. Then during treatment, I treat the root causes while taking care of the symptoms. For example, a patient coming in with a main complain of insomnia may find after a few sessions that she/he is sleeping better, and at the same time the bloating is much relieved, hands and feet are not that cold any more, etc .

There are many schools of Chinese medicine practices and I am a big fan of the Spleen-Stomach School, who attaches great importance to improving patients’ digestion, which corresponds to modern western medical research findings that the 70%-80% of our immune system tissue is situated in the digestive tract. Only when the digestion is working better, can our body generate sufficient Qi (life energy) and Blood to circulate all through the body smoothly to achieve the balance of all the internal organs function. So, digestion, digestion, always digestion! When patients understand this, they won’t be surprised when I put needles for digestion even if their main complaint is shoulder pain.

In my acupuncture practice, I always explain those basic concepts to the patients in a simple way even if there are some Chinese medicine terms. I believe most patients are willing to understand those concepts that I am using in their acupuncture treatment, and more importantly, I find from my experience that the treatments tend to be more effective when patients are actively involved.

World Health Organization has a list of diseases that can be effectively treated by acupuncture. I use a combination of acupuncture, Chinese Tuina massage, Chinese cupping, moxibustion and herbal medicine in my practice depending on patients’ conditions. My specialty is all kinds of pain syndromes, headache, migraine, digestion problems, low energy, sleeping problems, depression, anxiety, menstruation, menopause, etc. I just enjoy seeing my patients have more smiles each time they come to see me! As a mom of two, I am also extremely interested in pediatric Tuina massage (my fingers are my needles for kids) to help improve our little ones’ health. 

In my spare time, I enjoy searching around Calgary with my family. I also take 3-4week vacation every year to visit my parents in China while attending Chinese medicine and acupuncture training courses there. I hope everyone is and will be benefiting from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
