I have seen Dr. Ganna Shalygina. She is an outstanding doctor.

She is very professional and knowledgeable. She is very dedicated to her patients. I have been Receiving acupuncture treatment with her and I really feel the difference with the treatment.

Prior to coming to GWH (Great Wall Health Center) I’d had zero experience with acupuncture – I began looking into it as a way to “recalibrate” my body, as I’d been experiencing serious stress for quite a long time and it was reflected in my cycle (completely out of sync), my skin (recurrent, severe acne cysts on my chin), and in the anxiety and panic attacks I was having on an ever more frequent basis.


I emigrated from Hong Kong to Calgary in 1989.

I have always considered myself to be reasonably healthy, except for some minor setback (for example, I have osteoarthritis and ongoing allergies, infections and migraines). When I was younger, common cold, sore throat, laryngitis and bronchitis are regular occurrences. When antibiotics failed to eliminate my ailments, I turned to traditional Chinese medicine and have since been receptive to taking herbs and other Asian healing methods.


“With my second pregnancy I intended to have a natural, medication free birth only. I have relied on acupuncture twice and both times it exceeded my expectations. At 34 weeks my baby was still in breech position (bottom first), and in order to avoid a caesarean section or using external cephalic (ECV). I chose “Great Wall Health center” because I trust the experience and professionalism of Dr. Ganna Shalygina, R.Ac, TCMD, RMT who is particularly practicing pre-natal and post-natal acupuncture for years. I have tried acupuncture, particularly moxibustion, to turn my baby into a head-down position. This treatment helped to turn baby after 4 days.


I have been suffering from migraines off and on for over 20 years. I moved to Calgary couple of years ago from Ontario and my headaches progressively getting worse, to the point I was having constant headaches and pain killers stopped working, nothing really removes the pain completely.
