Our approach to fertility is pioneering

We use a groundbreaking fusion of Western knowledge and Traditional Chinese Medicine that is unique in the UK—and possibly globally.

Our treatments strengthen the whole body, not just the reproductive organs, to give patients the best chance possible of conceiving and giving birth to a healthy baby.

Our patients achieve outstanding results, year after year

82% of patients who completed The Zhai Programme in 2017 went on to have successful pregnancies:

  • 57% conceived within 6 months
  • 99% conceived within 13 months,

This compares to a successful pregnancy rate of 78% over the course of the Clinic’s history.

We work with a wide range of aspiring parents. The average age of our patients is 40. The youngest patient we successfully treated was 27; the eldest was 50.

We have a proven track record of treating patients across the spectrum of fertility issues. Repeated miscarriages, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, tubal factors, low ovarian reserve, and low sperm count are just some of the issues we help patients overcome.

We help patients conceive naturally and support patients who combine The Zhai Programme with all assisted fertility treatments, including IUI, IVF, ICSI, or donor egg treatment.

The Zhai Clinic

The Zhai Clinic was founded in 1993. Today, we are one of the UK’s leading fertility clinics and the principal authority on fertility in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Here is what sets us apart:

We fuse Western knowledge with Traditional Chinese Medicine

We fuse Western knowledge with Traditional Chinese Medicine

We create a personalised treatment programme for every patient that combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with the latest Western medical knowledge.

We use a holistic approach to pregnancy

We use a holistic approach to pregnancy

We believe that in order to conceive, your reproductive system needs to be in optimum condition and working in harmony with the rest of your body. We look at all aspects of your health and well-being from both a Chinese and Western medical perspective, taking into account a broad range of contributing factors, including diet, exercise, and stress management.

We empower our patients

We empower our patients

Many of our patients come to us after multiple unsuccessful rounds of assisted fertility treatment at clinics that did not investigate why they weren’t conceiving. We partner with our patients to help them understand potential causes or blocks to conception, take control of their body, and guide them to be in the best physical and mental position for a successful pregnancy.

We always put the health and well-being of our patients first

We operate with the highest of standards of patient care, codified by our Patients’ Charter and offer a welcoming, safe, and supportive space for our patients.


An Open Letter To All My Patients


9th August 2021

Many of you may already know that on the 31st March 2020, I informed all my patients of my intention to retire at the end of June 2020. Many of our patients expressed their desire for me to carry on a bit longer to see them through. I am fortunate to have had an excellent admin team who have helped me to continue to work from home with online consultations.

There will never be a perfect time but I have decided to close the Zhai Clinic by the end of this year (December 2021). Our clinic’s last consultations will be held on Tuesday 14th December which I hope will allow time for the tea to be delivered to you and to avoid the busy Christmas delivery period.

Best wishes,

Dr Zhai
