The NSAA was formed in 1992 when a small group of Nova Scotia acupuncturists met with the purpose of promoting acupuncture in Nova Scotia, educating the public, and ensuring that everyone would have access to ethical and fully qualified professionals.  The future goals of the NSAA are to continue to uphold these high standards and play a positive role in the alternative and complementary health care field.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture works directly with the body’s energy or qi, as acupuncture practitioners believe that all illnesses are a result of the natural flow of energy through the body becoming stuck, depleted or weakened and thus making the individual susceptible to illness. Acupuncture benefits the rebalance of qi through treatment of specific acupoints related to symptoms or illness present. Treatment is effective in removing these energy obstructions. (more)
