About Dr. Cheng
When Dr. Xia Cheng established the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CITCM) in Calgary, Alberta, she did so knowing that happiness and success are often achieved by reaching out and helping those in need. Dr. Cheng wanted to share her knowledge and passion with students interested in Eastern philosophies and the wisdom for healing the mind, body and soul to help build healthier and happier communities.
Choosing a career path is never a simple task and deciding where to study is equally challenging. Dr. Cheng recognized this and was determined to facilitate an environment where she could offer training in TCM, Acupuncture, and Massage so that others who share her passion could choose to learn with like minded individuals.
As a result of Dr. Cheng’s efforts, a college, CITCM, was created in 2004 where students could work together to learn in a collaborative environment. Under the direction of experienced practitioners, students are able to share their compassion and kindness with one another and practice their skills in a supportive clinical environment.
