Acupuncture & Wellbeing

Welcome to Acupuncture & Wellbeing

Hi, I'm Deanna Thomas, I am fully qualified and accredited Acupuncturist (BSc Hons) , Reflexologist, Aromatherapist, Meditation Instructor, Sound Therapist, advanced crystal healer and Reiki Master Teacher . i am also a member of the British acupuncture council, Uk reiki federation and the guild of holistic therapists.

My clinic is located in Thornaby on Tees. My holistic health and wellness journey began nearly 20 years ago when I embarked on a Reiki training course and enrolled in a local college course to train as a Reflexologist. Practising Reflexology inspired me to study and train as an Acupuncturist at the prestigious Northern College of Acupuncture in York.

I am dedicated to providing a safe and high-quality level of care for all of my patients. I want to support you and empower you with your health and wellbeing to help improve your quality of life through Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and the range of holistic therapies and treatments that I offer. 


Improve your wellbeing with Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into various acupuncture points on the body. This small action can trigger a cascade of effects from increasing endorphins to boosting immune functioning to releasing anti-inflammatories (important in reducing swelling and supporting healing).

This holistic approach to health and wellness promotes the body's natural healing response. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management, boosting immunity and easing pain.
