Be an Acupuncture Student for a Day
The New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), in Newton, is holding an information session on December 15 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Experience NESA Day is for anyone interested in pursuing an acupuncture degree. Visitors will meet school faculty and graduates, experience a brief human-anatomy tutorial and learn a few acupuncture point locations. “It’s an exciting opportunity to participate in our Experience Day if you’re interested in acupuncture or want to pursue a career in acupuncture,” says Admissions Director Catherine Hamilton, who notes that NESA was the first acupuncture school in the U.S. “Today it remains one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the field.”
NESA was founded in 1975 by Dr. James Tin Yau So and licensed as a vocational school by the Massachusetts Department of Education in 1976. The school’s three-year program now culminates in a master’s degree, and its student and professional clinics are open to the public.
