Acupuncture in Clapham and Battersea
Welcome to John Wheeler Acupuncture at the Acupuncture Life Clinic.
Specialising in Fertility, Gynaecology and Pregnancy for a decade. We are one of the few clinics that guarantee essential pre and post IVF acupuncture treatments on the morning of your IVF regardless of time or day. Research done in 2001 by Paulus et al showed that Acupuncture before and after IVF increased chances from 21% to 41%.
As well as Acupuncture we will also share our experience of treating couples and singles over the last decade and the different options that are available in both natural and mainstream medicine. We will point out to you what tests are available and what you can do yourself, such as BBT charting and understanding OPK's.
We will also design a diet plan to increase your health and fertility, using western and Chinese medicine specific to your diagnosis.
If you are going for IVF or looking for Fertility Acupuncture, I would strongly recommend reading the Fertility Page and the Guarantee.
My name is John Wheeler, I have a Bachelor of Science in Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture, Health Sciences and a Foundation Degree in Biological Sciences.
I have a busy Acupuncture Clinic in Clapham, Battersea South West London.
My Acupuncture clinic offers specialist treatment in Fertility, as well as treating all conditions of which the World Health Organisation has attributed to acupuncture, The list is impressive. As well as acupuncture we offer lifestyle advice including Nutrition and Moxibustion, Cupping Therapy and electro acupuncture. Our treatments will help you to increase your potential as well as general health. And as a specialist in fertility can walk you through all the options you have in Western and Chinese medicine if you are having difficulty conceiving or have had a diagnosis of sub-fertility.
We treat all conditions at the clinic as long as we feel we can make a difference and improve your condition.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been used for over 2500 years in the east. Here in the west it is now established as a proven method of medicine, endorsed by The World Health Organisation, The House of Lords and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence which advises the NHS.
Our clinic in Clapham Junction covers the areas of Battersea, Clapham, Wandsworth, Fulham, Putney and Earlsfield in South West London.
I have years of experience in treating many conditions, though for the last 10 years I have extensively studied fertility and have developed an acupuncture practise focussing on all issues of sub fertility, pregnancy and gynaecology. I have lectured for the Zita West Fertility Network.
I also have extensive experience in treating all general conditions and have also worked for many years in NHS/Government funded facilities treating psychological and emotional problems including addiction.
All latest Acupuncture and Fertility research can be found on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Fertility Clients: At our clinic we now guarantee available appointments regardless of time and day on specific times which are vital. Times such as Pre and Post IVF transfer days, short window between trigger and retrieval, and down regulation/stimulation times. These also include treatments on specific days of your cycle and male and female acupuncture during the fertile window. Many clinics are bound by opening times but we are glad we are one of the only clinics that can offer you treatments outside of normal opening times.
Are you having difficulty with fertility or considering IVF or another ART? Because Chinese Medicine uses different diagnostic techniques it can often increase your chances of conceiving, especially if your infertility is unexplained. This is because we may see areas of your fertility that can be enhanced of which western medicine cannot detect. We treat the individual and not just the condition.
Research has shown that acupuncture can:
Increase your IVF success from 22% - 42% with pre and post treatments.
Improve uterine blood flow.
Increase male sperm count.
Lower FSH levels sufficient for IVF to commence.

I am incredibly grateful to him for his help and guidance, and calm nature. After my first sessions, I immediately felt more relaxed and as the sessions progressed, my energy levels increased and I had a much more positive outlook on my situation.
With John’s expertise, I recovered very quickly from abdominal surgery, surprising my consultant. He prepared my body further for successful fertility treatment when I was originally told my chances were slim. I am greatly indebted to him.
I am currently unable to attend sessions, and am missing them!

my recovery period. He built me up and strengthened me physically and
emotionally, and I went on to successfully conceive my beautiful baby boy
naturally. Johns acupuncture practice is astute and rigorous and he
continues to help with other health issues. I cannot recommend him highly
