Osteopaths use a gentle “hands-on” or “manual” approach to detect areas of restricted movement throughout the body. Local concerns are viewed from multiple perspectives, to identify the causative factors behind the presenting problems.
The Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths (NSAO) was established in 2006 to provide a unified voice for Osteopaths in Nova Scotia.We are starting a dialogue with the department of health to become a regulated profession.
At this time, we find ourselves in unique circumstances with regard to navigating the unfolding situation involving COVID-19 in Nova Scotia. Members of NSAO have closed their clinics. These closures were ordered by the NS government under the Provincial State of Emergency as declared March 22, 2020 and the NS Health Protection Act (March 23-25, 2020). Clinics will re-open under the order and direction of the Department of Health and the Chief Medical Officer. Please reach out to your therapist directly for rescheduling.

The NSAO thanks you for doing your part in keeping yourselves healthy and the public safe.
