PW Therapy is a private functional medical clinic in the heart of Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes. We are specialists in medical disorders and chronic illness, pain management, and injury care & rehabilitation.

We are renowned for getting to the bottom of some of the most complicated cases in the UK, often labeled as ‘non-treatable’.  Our research programs into Epilepsy and Long-Covid, and further successes with paralysis, organ failure, and rare neurological disorders brings us patients from all over the UK who seek the answers and help they deserve. 

Many of our patients have come to us for preoperative pain reduction and have ended up avoiding surgery altogether as we have been able to find and treat the cause of the pain.

We take on referrals from many healthcare professionals such as Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, other specialists, and some local GPs. We are backed by 15 of the UK’s largest private medical and healthcare insurers, and are proud members of the Acupuncture Society, Sports Therapy Association, Total Therapy Association, and are registrants of the British Acupuncture Federation.

What can you expect in a PW Therapy treatment?

The first thing you will notice is an appointment needs to be arranged in advance as we have a continuous stream of patients, many of whom have seen many other specialists but have yet to find the help they need. Second is the attention to detail we we require surrounding your condition(s). We do not wait until the first treatment to find out critical information about you, instead we start the process as soon as contact is made, which allows for more treatment and less talking in your first appointment.

Your bespoke treatment plan will be discussed and agreed prior to commencing, and will be tailored to your needs based on our diagnosis. Unlike many other healthcare professionals we don’t rush our treatments and kick you out after 15-20 minutes, and neither do we charge per modality of therapy. It is likely you will receive a combination of treatments within your session to enhance the efficiency as no single way of treating can fix everything. It’s this multi level approach which gets us the results others cant, and we call this ‘stacking’.

Some of the most common medical procedures we like to stack are acupuncture (of which there are many variations), manual therapy (manipulations, articulations, and adjustments of the spine and other joints), massage therapy, and instrument assisted soft tissue release. We also believe in educating our patients because our aim isn’t to have you come to us forever, but instead to help you to the point you come to us just for an M.O.T. every so often. We like to set homework!  This could be something simple like us prescribing medicinal foods, herbs, and lineaments, right through to a full nutrition and/or rehabilitation program depending on your needs. You may even get to try our famous ‘homework needles’ which have literally changed and revolutionised the way we give our patients healthcare outside of the appointment window.


We look forward to helping you on your journey.

Quick and

Because we put in the time getting to know and understand our patients and their ailments, our results are quicker and longer lasting.

We don’t follow the crowd in treating the symptoms, we find and treat the cause!

AMAZING results. I went to see Philip following recommendation from a family member as I have had problems with my knee for the past 5 or 6 years, even after having keyhole surgery on my cartilage. I suffer with a sore and swollen knee after any reasonable exercise, often causing me to limp and take ibuprofen for the pain and the inflammation. One session with Philip and I have no limp, very little pain, even after long walks, an hour of football or a 23 mile bike ride. My knee specialist said I needed a knee replacement, but obviously not!! I can't thank or praise Philip enough

Philip Wheeler MAcS CA, RBAF, MSTA, B.A.M.F

Medical Acupuncturist and Functional Medicine Specialist.


Philip specialises in medical disorders, chronic illness, and pain management. He has extensive qualifications and experience in all aspects of human health and his success with complicated ‘non-treatable’ conditions brings him patients from all over the UK, who seek to find the answers and help they deserve.

“Helping people is what I’ve always wanted to do even from a young age. I do not believe what I do is a real job, as it’s fun! The bigger the challenge the more excited I get!”

Philip Wheeler

Over the years Philip has helped thousands of people overcome their diagnosis and conditions by taking the time and care to find the initial causes, rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. His fusion of Eastern and Western Medicine means he is able to understand things like modern scans/imaging results as well as medications and drug interactions, and combine this with the more functional medicine of the East. This truly integrated medical approach is one of the key factors which sets Philip apart from other specialists.

With over 100 recognised qualifications, Philip is a highly sort after therapist and educator and as such runs highly successful clinics in both Milton Keynes and London, as well as mentoring many highly accomplished therapists.

Philip always seeks out the very best professionals in their field of expertise to learn from as he believes this, along with passion and experience is the only way to become the best. Philip has been fortunate enough to have studied and learnt from Chris Davies, Tim Paine, Dr Gary Mendoza, Dr Tim Pearce, Dr Jeremy Steiner, John Gibbons, and Paul Chek just to name a few!

Philip’s love for all things Eastern started at the age of 8 when his Grandad signed him up for martial arts classes, and by the age of 19 he had his full adult black belt, 2 national titles, and numerous local titles. What Philip didn’t realise as a child was, he was not only learning to defend himself but also fix himself and others via pressure points, gua sha & cupping, medicinal herbs, and ancient healing.
Philip has now been doing martial arts for 28 years and is training in the art of Brazilian Jitsu under World Champion David Onuma. Philip hopes to be able to compete on the European stage by 2021 and up to the Worlds by 2022/23.

Philip’s career initially started as a professional chef having studied 3 years at Westminster College in Vincent Square. Philip went on to work for a host of well-known chefs including Albert Roux, and one of his top highlights was cooking for the Prince’s William and Harry.
Still working as a chef and competing in martial arts, Philip wanted to do a diploma in nutrition with the simple aim of improving his own physical health. One thing led to another and he found himself working as a Personal Trainer and Sports Therapist in the heart of London after completing his advanced training with Premier Global NASM. His clients would get master classes in nutrition, cooking lessons, Eastern inspired fitness sessions, and meditation.
Philip very quickly became a sort after trainer, and he attracted many TV personalities, celebrities, and athletes with his personal favourite being British actor Damian Lewis who came to him in preparation for the award-winning American drama Homeland.
