Claire Battersby completed a 5-year course in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in 1998, since when she has run a busy private practice in London. She is experienced in treating a wide range of conditions, including gynaecological, digestive, respiratory, endrocrine and autoimmune disorders, headaches and migraines. In her practice, she may use acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine, or a combination of the two, to obtain the best possible result.
Claire is a specialist in the field of infertility, gynaecology and obstetrics, and she works with some of the UK’s leading gynaecologists and fertility specialists. Through extensive training and many years of experience, she has gained expertise in the treatment of various menstrual disorders, including PCOS and endometriosis, as well as recurrent miscarriage, infertility, pregnancy care and the use of acupuncture in support of IVF. She has helped many women conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy, both naturally, and through assisted conception.
Claire set up and runs Conceive, a clinic specializing in reproductive healthcare at the Goose Green Clinic, which offers an integrated approach to boosting fertility and alleviating menstrual problems and providing care during and post-pregnancy.
Claire’s initial training was in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the style of medicine practised in China since the Cultural Revolution. In recent years, her interest has led her to pursue post-graduate studies in Classical Chinese Medicine, a style of medicine which is based on the ancient Taoist medical texts. She is committed to deepening her knowledge of Chinese medicine and has studied with some of the world’s most eminent Chinese medical doctors, including Tinh Thong Nguyen, Jeffrey Yuen, Dr Huang Huang and Dr Arnaud Versluys.
