My name is Oxana Getman. I am a registered acupuncturist (R.Ac.), graduate of the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (CCATCM), located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medicine, focusing on the unity and balance of the body, mind and spirit. By combining my passions of TCM and acupuncture, I am able to organically incorporate many healing modalities in order to achieve the best results. This holistic medicinal approach not only gets rid of symptoms and disease, but also shines as a great preventative measure with long lasting results.
Born and raised in Kyrgyzstan, a neighbour of China, I was close to Chinese culture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, my first degree was based on Western theory – I obtained my Master’s Degree in Psychology in 2001. Since a young age I have had a passion to serve people, to help them live their fullest potential and focus on harmony between the psychological and physical bodies.
I moved to Canada from Russia in 2010 and immediately fell in love with this beautiful country. Nova Scotia is my home now and I have contributed to my community with love and passion during these years, working, volunteering and socializing.
My first experience with acupuncture started with me as a patient. After being in the care of amazing acupuncturists and TCM doctors in Halifax, I realized that this was the path I should follow. I have had profound results in my physical and mental state, so this is how I wanted to help others who struggle with health issues. I decided to become an acupuncture and TCM practitioner to be able to apply these wonderful modalities for the healing of others.
I have had success aiding patients with digestive issues, weight loss, skin issues, stress, insomnia, menopause, internal organs disharmonies, gynaecological symptoms, beauty and rejuvenation, cold and flu, stroke, fatigue, back/hip/knee/elbow pain, sinusitis, asthma, headaches, addiction cessation, depression, anxiety and much more. I am happy when I see my clients feel relief of their symptoms after my treatments.
My TCM services include: Acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture & Ear Seeding, Acupressure Massage, Fire Cupping, Guasha, and Tuina massage.
Sharing my passion and experience with my clients is very important for me, therefor I extend our initial appointment to 2 hours long and all subsequent appointments to 1.5 hours. In this way my clients can feel more relaxed and get extra attention and complementary beneficial modalities.
I am confident that together we can overcome any health problem through acupuncture and other TCM modalities. My services are covered by most of insurance plans.

– Acupuncture Clean Needle Technique (CNT Exam) certified.
– Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Diploma from CCATCM.
– Registered Acupuncturist (R. Ac.) with the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada, Nova Scotia Chapter.
