“From a young age I have always had an interest in skincare, the most valuable lesson my mum taught me was, ’that good skincare was an investment.’ It was certainly that belief that led me into the industry. I really enjoy learning about the latest products and treatments.

She completed her Foundation Training as NHS Doctor in Merseyside area and secured one of the most sought after Core Surgical Training posts during which she trained in renowned Ear, Nose and Throat, Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery departments. She then went on to pursuing her career in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery with special interest in Facial Plastics Surgery and ranked 12th in the country in the National Selection Process.

She has also completed her aesthetic training with a world expert Dr Lee Walker in Liverpool. She is an advanced aesthetics trainer for Acquisition Aesthetics, an award winning Independent Aesthetic training provider in the UK.

ETHICAL AESTHETICS was created from a rising need of delivering aesthetic treatments responsibly by appropriately qualified medical professionals. I think aesthetic medicine nowadays gives us great opportunities to enhance the way we look and feel. However, having worked in Plastic Surgery and Maxillofacial Surgery Departments, I have witnessed multiple complications of badly performed aesthetic procedures. I wanted to create a place where such treatments are delivered by appropriately qualified medical professionals, who have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. I support the patient throughout the process, starting with creating a treatment plan together and finishing with post-procedure maintenance plan. At ethical aesthetics you are not a client but a patient because your safety is our priority. The way we deliver our treatments is evidence based and in accordance with the newest research.

Amy Wilson - Massage Therapist

“I graduated from Salford University with a first class BSc (Hons) degree in complementary medicine practice in 2001 and have worked at Lochthorn Medical Centre since then. I have also recently set up an acupuncture practice in Carlisle at the Skin Genie Clinic.

My appreciation of acupuncture lies in its ability to treat the person and not just the problem. Acupuncture has enabled me to look at the bigger picture and deal with the root cause of people’s ailments as opposed to only addressing the symptoms.

I feel that one of the strengths of Traditional Acupuncture is that there is no mind-body split. In other words, the physical, emotional and mental aspect of health are seen as interdependent with one influencing the other. In Traditional Acupuncture we treat the whole person, with mental and emotional well being equally as important as physical health.

I find it a rewarding and fulfilling career and enjoy helping people to overcome their difficulties to regain better health.

During my first 15 years of clinical practice I worked with the NHS treating patients with chronic pain who hadn’t responded to conventional therapy. This gave me invaluable experience and much of my work today involves helping people to control pain caused by a wide variety of conditions.

For the past 20 years I have used acupuncture for the care of patients with progressive illnesses such as cancer and regularly update my training in palliative care. I work closely with the Macmillan centre to help women recovering from breast cancer overcome the side effects of endocrine therapy.

I have special interest in the use of acupuncture to promote women’s health where the focus is hormonal problems. Hormones play a key role in women’s lives and hormonal balance is important as women make the transition from puberty to menopause. I use acupuncture to help women deal with issues surrounding pre-menstrual tension, period pain, peri menopause and the menopause. I also work with women who are preparing to have a family and are perhaps struggling with this. I have undertaken extensive training in acupuncture for fertility and IVF support with Zita West, a pioneer in this field.

I continue to learn and develop my skills through regular CPD training and look forward to meeting and helping more people in clinic.”
