Acupuncturist, Herbalist, RGN, RCN, Lic. Acu, MAcS, BSc, MBFs, PhD (C)
Hi, my name is Simin Wei ( 韦思敏 ), I’m a mother of two lovely children. I spend my weekdays on the clinic and caring for our patients.
I am a Fertility Expert, a Ph.D.(C) Chinese Medicine in Gynaecology. I help women to get pregnant and stay pregnant by preparing body and mind for fertility and pregnancy. I’ve had the joy of empowering many women with the tools and techniques of ancient Traditional Chinese Medicines to overcome fertility issues and grow their families.
And in my Fertility Clinic in Milton Keynes, I use Chinese acupuncture and Herbal Medicine and other holistic medicines to improve the well-being of our clients, including those struggling with specific health complaints, and women who are trying to conceive, are pregnant or are in postpartum recovery.
Twenty-five years ago, I was working as an RGN and clinical teacher for Nursing Students and Junior Medical Students at Luzhou Medical College Hospital in China and came to England working in Imperial College Medicine Hospital ( St. Mary’s Hospital in London), ENT, GI and Intensive Care Unit, seeing so many people struggling with their health. When my second child suffered from a chronic Virus cough day and night, Western medicine could no longer help, that is when I decided to start the Chinese Medicine Journey.
I followed my heart and it led me to study Chinese Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine in England and China, getting my another degree level in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, now on my Ph.D. programme in Gynaecology.
The relationship I have with my son, and my personal experience of Chinese Medicine inspired me to specialize in helping women conceive and to have beautiful, healthy babies.
In the last few years of my practice, I worked with many women in our Milton Keynes Fertility Acupuncture clinic, but now I want to help more.
Our acupuncture clinic in Milton Keynes, England, continues to treat people with a variety of health conditions, including, Gynaecological issues, fertility struggles.
I love my work, feel so fortunate to run a business doing the work I love, using our powerful ancient Chinese healing techniques to help my clients with their modern-day problems.
At my fertility clinic, I specialize in supporting all roads to conception, including:
- Natural Conception
- Medicated Cycle
- IUI Cycle
- IVF/FET Cycle
- In-Clinic Embryo Transfer Support
- Donor Egg
- Surrogacy Support
- Miscarriage Recovery
- Prenatal Treatment
- Male Fertility
“I really believe that seeing Simin on a regular basis is our success with our IVF treatment.”Mrs. L White from Luton

Embryo Transfer Support
Improve your chances of a successful embryo transfer with acupuncture treatments both before and after the transfer takes place. Around 1-24 hours prior to your transfer your acupuncture treatment will help you relax, increase blood flow to your uterus, and support the reception of the embryo. Then after the transfer has taken place, a follow-up acupuncture session will help return you to a more calm, relaxed state, support the growing embryo, and encourage your body’s energy to hold the embryo in place.
Please note this treatment follows a different pricing structure to our regular fertility acupuncture services. Call 01908 690544 for more details.
Male Fertility Treatment
When a couple are struggling to get pregnant, male fertility is a contributing factor more than 50% of the time.
Research shows that the average man’s sperm count and sperm quality have decreased by more than 40% in the past half-century due to sperm’s sensitivity to heat, environmental toxins, diet and stress, contributing to an increase in the number of couples experience infertility.
Lifestyle factors can have a negative impact on sperm counts. These factors include:
- Eating an unhealthy diet
- Drinking excessive alcohol
- Using marijuana
- Smoking cigarettes
- Using hot tubs (as high temperatures decrease sperm count and quality)
- Being overweight
And it’s not just women who experience a decline in fertility as they get older. New research is showing that men’s sperm quality begins to decline around the age of 45, which impacts the likelihood of a successful pregnancy and the health outcome of their child.
New research shows that acupuncture can significantly improve the quality and health of sperm. In a study published in Fertility and Sterility in 2005, researchers analyzed sperm samples from men with infertility of unknown cause before and after acupuncture treatments. They found that acupuncture was associated with fewer structural defects in sperm and an increase in the number of normal sperm.
Other studies have shown that regular acupuncture treatments significantly improve sperm counts and motility (the strength with which the sperm swim).
Please be reassured we never insert needles into your ‘private areas’ – no matter what health condition you are seeking help for. We will explain where the needles will be placed, and you will remain in full control throughout. Many of the people we treat don’t even feel the needles go in at all.
To get the maximum benefit from acupuncture, we recommend men get a minimum course of treatment for three months. But improvements in sperm quality and quantity can occur rapidly making even a one-off acupuncture treatment beneficial.
Male fertility acupuncture treatments are suitable whether you are trying to conceive naturally or using assisted reproductive technology (ART) including intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures. If you are using ART, your acupuncture treatment can be started at any time during the cycle.

“ I had very little symptoms through my pregnancy, my baby flourished, and I felt safe and secure in the hands of Simin” – Joanne Northampton
Once you’re holding your precious baby in your arms, you may forget to take care of yourself (we’ve all been there).
