Acupuncture Surrey was started by Nicci van Dyk, a classical acupuncturist fully accredited by the British Acupuncture Council. Prior to starting Acupuncture Surrey, Nicci completed a three year degree-level course in Acupuncture at the the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), the UK's oldest acupuncture college.
Nicci has been trained in several traditionally based systems of acupuncture including TCM, Five Elements and Stems and Branches (often known as constitutional acupuncture). Her studies have also included training on the use of moxibustion and cupping.
Nicci enjoys supporting patients with a variety of issues including menopausal support and woman's health issues, stress-related disorders, musculo-skeletal issues that are not shifting with other therapies, sleep issues and digestive problems.
Nicci currently runs two acupuncture clinics - a private clinic on the border or Redhill and Reigate and a lower cost community multibed clinic in Merstham. She also volunteers her time as an acupuncturist at the Macmillan Cancer Support Centre at East Surrey Hospital just south of Redhill (see below).
Nicci is also an experienced tai chi and qigong teacher having practiced both disciplines for well over a decade. She was given permission to teach in 2017 and currently runs several classes in Reigate, Surrey. Nicci may include instruction on basic qigong exercises as part of the support she offers.
Serving the Community
One of the main reasons Nicci started Acupuncture Surrey was to find a way to bring affordable acupuncture to people in her local community (Redhill, Reigate, Earlswood, Horley, Caterham, Dorking, Nutfield, Bletchingly, etc). This dream became a reality when she opened her lower cost community multibed clinic in Merstham in December 2022.
Nicci also provides pro-bono acupuncture treatments at Macmillan Cancer Support at East Surrey Hospital just south of Redhill, working with patients who have gone through (and in many cases continue to experience) immense physical, psychological and emotional challenges.
