Hello, I am Amanda
TCM Acupuncturist. Clinical Hypnotherapist. Holistic therapist. Teacher.

A little bit about me.

In the early 2000's my life changed a little and I decided that I wanted to train in Holistic therapies, so I did, gaining qualifications in several forms of massage, reflexology, Indian head massage, Diet and nutrition and Aromatherapy. 

I loved helping people and so I decided to see what else I could learn to further enhance my skills. 

In 2006 I began my journey into Acupuncture, I fell in love with the beauty and complexity ,the flow and simplicity, the knowing I will never know it all.  I attended the University of Lincoln and in 2009 gained my BSc (honors) In Traditional Chinese Acupuncture. 

Well what a ride that's been since then. I realised that I love to learn, and how much is there to learn? Everything I do learn has a purpose and an intention to expand and develop my skills to better be able to help people.

In 2019 my friend Charlotte and I decided to see how Acupuncture and Hypnotherapy worked together. Wow were we surprised at the results! Then lockdown happened, I got busy and Charlotte got busy and we didn't quite ever have time to move forward with it. Fast forward to 2021 Charlotte founded Axiom Academy of clinical hypnotherapy, and I signed up straight away. I gained my Clinical Hypnotherapy diploma in 2022 and began working with Hypno-puncture.

2024 has seen the launch of Purple Lotus Academy. A place where I can share my knowledge and skills.

I enhance my skills on a regular basis having added so far:

Jade roller and Gua sha facial. 

Micro needling.

Emotional Freedom Technique.



Neuro/Scalp acupuncture.

Enhanced Gua sha.

Neuromuscular release and PNF stretching.
