Home visits with Paul
Many people may be housebound and find it difficult to travel to receive the treatment that they need. Others may need a home visit to avoid the stress and anxiety of making the journey. These are helpful and convenient for you, if you are unable to visit my clinic in Longfield during the daytime, or live in a rural area where transport is a problem. What-ever the reason my aim is to help you.

Over the phone discussion
Usually I begin to see the best way that I may help you as an individual on the phone. This discussion usually takes around 5 – 15 Mins. I can call you so it won't cost you a penny.
Face to face visit
If you are still unsure and would like to see me face to face, I am always happy to call round and have an informal chat. Together we arrange a date and time suitable for both of us. One of the advantages of having a home visit it that I am not restricted to the clinics hours. Many appointments are made for early mornings, evenings or over the weekend.
Generally my last appointment is 8.00 pm.
The first visit will always take longer and I allow at least one and half to two hours. Subsequent visits generally last around one hour.
The Consultation Process
Patients are often surprised just how detailed and the depth of some of my questions. This is because Acupuncture is a holistic approach I take a full case history of not just your physical health but the emotional aspects of your life.
It's useful to me to hear your lifestyle, sleep patterns, diet, stresses, and anxieties which affect you. As well as enquiring about your medications and surgical procedures.
I am a fully registered member of the British Acupuncture Council, and so duty bound by a code of conduct performance and ethics. All of your information will be treated as confidential and are not shared with anyone without your written consent. They are all kept in line with GDPR regulations.
There may be a series of short physical examinations some of which you will be familiar with for example having your blood pressure taken. Others you may not be so familiar with: checking specific acupuncture points on the body to see if there is any localised sensitivity: comparing temperature between various areas on the body, or looking at your tongue and take your pulse. This is a diagnosis in Chinese Medicine and is taken on both the left and right wrists.
After I have decided with you what points and therapy you may need I will prepare for your treatment by cleaning and disinfecting my hands.
Once all of the needles are inserted and in place they are usually in place for between 20 – 30 minutes. Treatments are designed to also be a relaxing therapy and usually end with you relaxing on the couch for a while.
After you have relaxed for a while I usually reassess the final outcome of the treatment.
If I feel additoinal advice may be beneficial to your health condition or your lifestyle, i may suggest opther options. It might be for you to take it easy for a while after the treatment, avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise, or make sure you eat and drink well.
At the end I tidy up and remove all of the materials that I have used during the treatment and finish.
It’s then time to pay and if required arrange any future visits.
Treatment cost is £65.00 per visit.
You can pay by cash, cheque or by card I bring my own card reader with me which is 100% secure.
