Pippa is trained in acupuncture on a 3-year, full time degree course at the University of Westminster in London (formerly London School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine). This course provided supervised clinical training using the Traditional Chinese Medical model. It also covered the core health sciences, practitioner development and research skills.
Acupuncture focuses on improving general well being, not just treating isolated symptoms.
The practice is part of the traditional Chinese system of medicine, which believes that the body is an energetic organism.
Disease or ill health occur when the flow of energy (Qi) is blocked or out of balance. This may happen for various reasons, for example due to physical or emotional trauma, poor diet, stress or climate.
Her aim as an acupuncturist is to identify any imbalances and correct them by inserting very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific points on the body along the pathways of energy (Meridians).
