Bridging the gap and building the dialogue between empirical evidence-based western methodology and the holistic, natural healing principles of eastern medicine.
Amanda was first impassioned to an interest in skin and sensitivity issues, when her 3-month old son developed a serious skin reaction after his immunisations resulting in hospital treatment.
The pursuit of safe, natural remedies, triggered the decision to learn acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine skills from which dermatology became a principle interest and her extensive career in holistic healing began furthered by a developing passion in enhancing beauty.
In addition to her clinical work Amanda is Head of Research and Development as well as a senior lecturer for the College of Chinese Medicine, London. In her role as Vice Chairman of a professional society of TCM practitioners, she has represented Stakeholder Groups which was formed to work towards statutory regulation. This lead to her active involvement in setting up the CNHC Microsystems Group for which she is a profession specific board member.
Currently she is in high demand as atrainer and pioneer in the practice of holistic healing empowering western practitioners in the art of eastern principles with an evidence-based approach.
The Amanda Shayle Collection is the result of years of expertise working with some of nature's most powerful healing actives, and formulated with the same evidenced based approach for visible results in damage reversal and lasting rejuvenation.
