About John Wheeler
Welcome to my website. My name is John Wheeler, I am an acupuncturist in south west London and a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In my practice I seek to form a compassionate and healing rapport with patients, offering effective medical care and self-care through patient education.
I work in private practice specialising in fertility and see many conditions in my clinic. I also worked as an acupuncturist for a government funded project with addicts with addiction related issues and illneses such as hepatitis and HIV. I practise in Battersea and Clapham. I have taught auricular acupuncture in various workshops and for Zita West's acupuncture fertility network.
After originally working as an operating theatre nurse in the NHS and the private sector, John decided to follow his passion for Chinese medicine and graduated with honours at the University of Westminster in acupuncture.
John has also trained in auricular acupuncture specialising in treating addictions and psycho-emotional problems. He worked in the NHS and in the field of addiction as an acupuncturist for seven years. He also teaches auricular acupuncture to undergraduate students, full body acupuncturists and to those working in the field of addiction.
John has also completed post graduate studies in Chinese cosmetic acupuncture and has a special interest and success in treating infertility and has lectured for the Zita West acupuncture network. He has also practised Qi Gong and Xing Yi for many years.
John has also studied shonishin, Japanese paediatric acupuncture which uses a non-needle technique which can treat babies as well as young children.

Although acupuncture is a very ancient system of medicine, it has a real place in 21st century treatment. As a system on its own, acupuncture creates the space for health and a feeling of well being. However, the role of acupuncture alongside conventional medicine is also very impressive, and I strongly believe in the integration of both western and Chinese medical systems wherever appropriate.
