Tim Nicosia, Licensed Acupuncturist, is a spiritual artist, dedicated clinician, knowledge seeker, adoring father and loving husband.
He always felt a deep connection to nature, having grown up near the Freeman Ranch just outside of San Marcos, Texas.
The son of two teachers, Tim followed their lead and began working with “at risk” youth in both residential and wilderness programs. During this time, he noticed a disconnect between people and nature. And so his journey began! He set out to explore different ways to help people reconnect with the rhythms and wisdom of the natural world.
Tim gained valuable experience with nutrition while living and working at the raw food healing center – The Optimum Health Institute – between Austin and Bastrop.
He realized while working in the raw food center that even with changes to diet and exercise on a physical level, some critical puzzle piece was still missing for many people.
This led Tim to a 3 year residency in Santa Fe, NM working with an energy healer. During this time, he learned deep wisdom about how to help people connect and heal on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level. The energy work was very subtle yet powerful and introduced him to the potential of holistic medicine.
Shortly after this experience Tim discovered Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, which he realized was the missing piece he’d been looking for.
The foundational text in Chinese Medicine, The Huang di Neijing, talks about the origins of the medicine. In ancient times the people lived in harmony with nature and the natural rhythms and cycles. As civilization advanced, the people lost the natural way and acupuncture and herbal medicine was created to treat the ills of the people.
Tim delighted in discovering this core puzzle piece! He was also astonished to find that people have been having the same struggles for over 3,000 years.
Tim graduated from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2011 and worked as an acupuncturist in Austin for 3 years. He is ever grateful to have helped many people in that community.
In 2014, Tim moved with his family to New Braunfels. He enthusiastically shares his unique skill set to help his patients with insomnia, hormonal issues, anxiety, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, headaches, pain, and many other issues.
Tim’s core belief is that this medicine has the ability to transform individuals, families, and the community in a deep and profound way. He is inspired to help all who come to him for care.
