We are pleased to be able to announce a new service at The Helix Clinic – a mobile acupuncture service designed so that we can visit you at your home at a time that’s convenient for you. This service is being offered by our acupuncturist Lesley, and although she will mainly cover North and Central London, she will also make home visits outside this area with appropriate notice at a pre-arranged time.

Home visits allow you to reap the benefits of acupuncture by remaining in the comfort of your own surroundings. Some patients suffer from mobility issues, so this gives them a perfect way to be able to benefit from regular acupuncture treatments. After a session you can continue to enjoy the after-effects of the treatment, enhancing the therapeutic effects of acupuncture by being able to relax afterwards in your own home.

If a busy work and family schedule makes it difficult for you to make it in to one of our clinics, Lesley can visit at a time which suits you. Having a mobile acupuncture treatment takes the stress and hassle out of travelling to and from a clinic, negotiating London traffic, using public transport or the problems of parking when you do arrive for an appointment. The therapeutic effects of acupuncture can be enhanced by being able to relax in your own surroundings afterwards. For those who may feel apprehensive or nervous about acupuncture a home visit may reduce anxiety and enhance your ability to relax during a treatment.

Lesley’s skills as a nurse and her training and experience as a traditional acupuncturist means that she has a balanced and well-rounded approach. She understands existing health conditions and any medications you may be taking. Her attitude is a professional, holistic and caring one, and she is passionate about holistic health and acupuncture.

There is an additional £20.00 charge for each mobile visit, on top of the regular acupuncture fees. Mobile visits will always include body acupuncture and depending on the nature of your condition, may incorporate additional treatments such as cupping, ear acupuncture and moxibustion at no extra cost.

For a little more information about Lesley, we have a testimonial from one of her past patients:

“Lesley was recommended to me by a good friend of mine for acupuncture when I had several issues with my health. Following a difficult time I had bouts of insomnia, stress and pretty bad eczema. She was very professional and her energy and passion for her work put me at ease immediately. The consultation was very thorough and a lot of care came across. After the first treatment I slept like a log for the first time in ages! A couple of sessions later, my state of mind was much calmer and my eczema had improved drastically. As a bonus I went through a whole summer without the need to take antihistamines for my hay fever. Having started as a bit if a sceptic, I have changed my views and cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Lesley.” – Andrew

For more information about our new mobile service, please feel free to call or email us for more details. We can also offer this service to local businesses if you would like us to come into your place of work and offer acupuncture treatment there.
