Meet Nicky

I’m Nicky Thomas and I practice at York Natural Health in Acomb, which is a centre for natural health care.  When I’m not practicing here, I enjoy teaching yoga at York Yoga Studio, and the Mount School.  For the past four years I have also been a Supervisor for students doing a three year degree course in Chinese Medicine, within the teaching Clinic at the Northern College of Acupuncture.

I began my four-year study of Chinese Medicine in 1996 after my interest was kindled by a visit to China. I was drawn to its natural, sustainable and holistic approach.  I am passionate about offering people different perspectives to healthcare having been inspired by the Chinese model where Western and Chinese medicine approaches are integrated in a positive way to help people regain health and balance. 

I’m dedicated to making the experience of having acupuncture one in which you have time to be listened to and understood, and feel supported through the physical and emotional challenges that you may be facing.  After all these years of practicing, I'm still inspired by how the insertion of very fine needles can bring about such profound and life-altering changes in a person’s energy, sleep, stress and pain levels.

Nicky Thomas is a fully qualified member of the British Acupuncture Council.

I just want to thank you for being such a wonderful, professional and caring person. I found that my weekly sessions, were a form of debriefing as well as a treatment. You listened to me and really helped me to digest situations.
