Managing Director & Advanced Aesthetic Practitioner
In creating Escape MediSpa, Jacqui wanted to merge the feeling of luxury and relaxation with result-driven treatments. She believes that a relaxing environment and a calming atmosphere is a key part of the journey to a new you. As a mum of two beautiful babies, Jacqui realises the importance of a work-life balance which in turn promotes a positive lifestyle and skin health.
After graduating from Glasgow College, Jacqui gained international experience teaching Beauty Therapy to young professionals at a further education college in Botswana, Africa. From there, she started her career working in 5-star Spa Resorts throughout the UK, Europe and Australia. It was during her time in Australia where her interest in aesthetics grew. Whilst managing a popular chain of Aesthetic Clinics on the Gold Coast Jacqui gained immense experience in laser, skin peels and advanced medical treatments.
Missing home, she returned to a ‘dream job’ as Clinic Manager at the Medispa within Harvey Nichols and then on to co-owning a Medical Clinic in the West End of Edinburgh. She has a passion for delivering and maintaining exceptionally high standards and understands the ever-changing needs of clients and current trends. Jacqui firmly believes that a combination of treatments and quality homecare products provides the best possible results for her clients.

“My favourite treatment at Escape MediSpa is HIFU. I’ve always had a slim build with minimal exercise however, after two children and as I quickly approach 40, I’m finding it more difficult to stay in shape and tone up the loose tummy skin! HIFU has really helped with my “mummy tummy” and I’m slowly getting my pre-baby body back.”

“My ultimate favourite treatment is the HydraFacial or the Hydro2 Facial. The thing I love most about them both is that you can tailor it to suit almost any skin type and to treat any specific concerns. The results are long-lasting which means you can feel the benefits for days after. I know that this is also a favourite with all of my clients, it’s so versatile and they always return monthly to keep on top of any specific concerns that they may have, whether it’s targeting fine lines or treating breakouts.”

“My favourite treatment at Escape MediSpa has to be Dermaplaning with a mild peel. My skin always feels unbelievably smooth immediately after and my makeup blends beautifully for the weeks following. My go-to product is Medik8 Advanced Night Restore Rejuvenating Cellular Repair Cream, you always wake up with silky smooth skin when you’ve used it. It’s a firm favourite of mine.”
