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, and other specialists, including a handful of NHS GPs and Consultants. We are backed by 17 of the UK’s largest private medical and healthcare insurers, and are proud members of the Acupuncture Society, Acupuncture Association, Sports Therapy Association, Total Therapy Association, and are registrants of The British Acupuncture Federation who are the largest association in the UK.


What can you expect from 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 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 treatments we like to stack are Acupuncture (of which there are many variations), manual therapy (manipulations, articulations, and adjustments of the spine and other joints similar to how an Osteopath or Chiropractor would), massage therapy (Sports Massage/Sports Therapy, Tuina, Indonesian, Thai, and many more) and instrument assisted soft tissue release (Cupping, Gua Sha, etc). 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. It’s because of this 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.

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!

I went to see Philip with a dodgy knee as I'm disabled from an illness (encephalitis) I had 35 years ago. OMG!! You would never believe the things he has helped me with. Firstly confidence in myself and eating more healthy. The pains I have had through my body that doctors said were untreatable have practically all gone. Before seeing Philip I also had extremely irregular and unpleasant menstruation however this was rectified along with the other issues I was experiencing. My paralysed right hand has now got loose fingers and a little feeling and I have epilepsy but since seeing Philip my seizures have greatly decreased. In any single month I was having upto 11 seizures per night in bed but for the last 7 months I have not had any Seizures at night. In any single month I was having 23 Seizures in anyone day some were small facial Seizures, tonic Seizures and grand mal Seizures a right mixture but for the last 3 months I'm having small facial Seizures only. I can now say I have been seizure free for 5 weeks! Philip is amazing he has given me so much hope. Thank you Philip looking forward to my next appointment.

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

I went to see Philip with no real "ailment".However I, like most people had had a difficult 18 months both emotionally and physically and felt I needed some healing. I knew instantly (based on the very thorough questionnaire) that Philip was going to take the time to understand me. Now I often think he knows me better than I know myself. I went and had acupuncture initially but now I've tried cupping and reiki. The effect my visits have on my mental health is immeasurable. I often try to explain to my husband how I feel after our sessions but I can never find the right words. To put it very simply I feel lighter, clearer and all round happier. Philip adapts my treatment on any given visit based on our chat at the start of our appointment. His knowledge and experience seems endless. Philip has developed a one stop shop for mind, body and soul and I am forever grateful to have discovered him.

Jeanne Coleman

When I went to Philip I had a lot of aches and pains, in arms, hands, neck, hip, knee & feet, i was unable to pinpoint any reason other than walking made my neck and shoulder ache!!! Philip listened, asked questions and is very caring, to my amazement he found I had a problem with my kidney, liver and stomach, after a few sessions of acupuncture and one of cupping I feel like a new person, this man is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone and think he could cure anything. If your unsure look him up and see the different therapy he uses. Thank you Philip.

Emma Hounslow

I was recommended to see Phil by my son. I have had intermittent treatment on an injury in my back that I have carried for over 20 years but it still flared up. In alot of pain I went to see Phil who took his time to understand what exactly had happened and what methods I had received previously. Phil offered a treatment that would assist with the healing. After 2 hours of being with him the pain had subsided greatly. 8 weeks after the first treatment my back is the best it has been in such a long time. Not only has he helped with with what I initially went to see him for he is helping me with general body and mind maintenance which I would also highly recommend. Phil is exceptionally knowledgeable and professional in his approach. Very highly recommended.

As you can imagine 2020 has been a tough year for a lot of people. But for me it was the first time I got hit with severe anxiety and depression. For months I was getting panic attacks and feelings of worthlessness and suicidal thoughts, my friends and family tried to help but there was only so much they could say. It took me until one day I decided enough was enough. I was given Phillips details and at first I was very sceptical, I’d never tried acupuncture before and had especially never heard of it helping someone’s mental health. But I thought why not try it, I’ve got nothing to lose. So I went to my first appointment, half nervous half thinking this is going to be a waste of time. But as soon as I sat down in there, I felt at ease with Phill. His demeanour and positivity shined and I immediately felt at ease. He layed me down, put some pins in my head and body and got me talking about my problems starting from the beginning of my childhood. Just from that first session he could tell things about me no one else could see or know, and I immediately felt like this could change my mindset for good. Fast forward numerous sessions and I can safely say I’m in a better place now. I feel I have control over my life and a much better outlook on things, and this is largely down to Phil and the tools he has given me. Not only has he helped me mentally but any other physical niggles he’s sorted for me within 1 or 2 sessions which is just amazing. I’m shocked at how incredible acupuncture is and I encourage anyone to try it. It just might change your life.

I’ve experienced chronic pain in my ankles following a bad football injury over 10 years ago. Five operations later and it’s still not right and in truth I simply adapted to life living in pain. Having seen Philips details on FB I thought I would give it a go. Following my very first appointment, I genuinely believe some of these operations could have been literally feels like a miracle. As extreme as it sounds, it feels like I have new ankles!!! They feel amazing and the benefits so far are so much more than I ever wished for...the most exiting is knowing there is more to go and how much more I have to look forward to. Please, anyone that is considering it....DO IT!!! You won’t regret it. Phil.....thank you!

Samantha Butler

Philip is a Magician, For years I suffered with back pain and arm pain but Philip has changed my life for the better, I no longer want to chop my arm off and I have no back pain... Philip's treatments are bloody amazing... I can't wait to go back for my next session. Thank you Philip.

Victoria Cigoreanu

We would like to say a big thank you to Philip. My husband was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and was told it’s something he will live with for the rest of his life but 5 treatments with Philip and it’s fixed. We are so pleased with the treatments and amazing results. Would highly recommend. Next he wants his back pain gone! Thank you very much !!!!!

“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

Philip has a strong clinical background in Gynaecology conditions including infertility, menstrual disorders, and menopause, as well as cardiovascular & respiratory conditions. His specialty areas are Endocrinology, Neurology, and organ functions with an emphasis on kidney and liver health. 

Philip has had great success in the treatment of neurological conditions, such as Epilepsy, Paralysis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Stroke, and chronic headaches/migraines. He has also effectively treated patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, Glomerulonephritis, kidney stones, Urinary tract infections, Polycystic kidney disease, as well as various types of liver disease. 

Philip also treats common and rare musculoskeletal conditions, as well as pre- and post-operative care and rehabilitation. 


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 and combine the best of both worlds, and it’s this integrative medical approach which sets Philip apart from other specialists.

As well as running his highly successful clinic in Milton Keynes, Philip mentors other established therapists and healthcare professionals, as well as lecturing degree level Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, massage/manual therapies, nutrition, and various CPDs. He is also regularly appointed by high-end Government and local Council establishments, Bedfordshire and Thames Valley Police Forces, and a large proportion of businesses in and around Buckinghamshire and London.


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 his martial arts masters were teaching him both the arts of  fighting, and healing combined into one.
Philip has now been doing martial arts for 28 years and has ventured into the art of Brazilian Jitsu which he started under the late Professor Nick Brooks, and now under World Champion Professor David Onuma.

Philip’s working 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 add nutrition to his skillset 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.
