About Me

Nicola Allen

The human body is amazing and I’ve always been intrigued by how it works, particularly the muscles and the brain. I studied sciences, physical education, and business, and my first career was in brand management.

After 12 years in corporates, I decided to change course. I re-trained as a qualified acupuncturist and now work in a field I am passionate about: helping people!

My family and I moved to the Netherlands in September 2014 and I’m proud to bring Lilymint Acupuncture to Amsterdam.

My goal is simple: to help my patients feel better and happier.
