In 2003, with support from several sources, Beijing Zhangjian Ichthyosis Research Institute was established. And then “Zhangjian Therapy” was formally applied in clinical treatment; up to now, nearly 30 thousand ichthyosis patients at home and abroad have been healed.
46 years ago, Zhang Jian was an oncologist. Later she decided to study the treatment of ichthyosis on her own because her daughter suffered from ichthyosis and had not been effectively treated.
She collected the related materials everywhere, and finally she was inspired by the theory of “massage and bath” in the book called The Inner Canon of Huangdi. After decades of unremitting study and improvement, she has developed the “Zhangjian Therapy” based on herbal fumigation and skin care with TCM, and finally she had cured her daughter’s ichthyosis. At present, her daughter is 63 years old, and her skin is quite good. Ichthyosis never recurred to her; and ichthyosis has never inherited to her descendants.
