Using Eastern and Western Medicine integrated together, Philip’s research and success shows what’s possible when treating conditions such as Epilepsy and Long-Covid. His work has attracted the attention of senior UK neurologists and consultants who are eager to explore his methods further. Philip’s clinic PW Therapy was awarded ‘Best Neurological Medical Specialists 2023 – UK’ in the Global Health and Pharma Mental Health awards which he and his team are overjoyed with.

Philip is currently expanding his knowledge further on Functional and Regenerative Medicine and aims to write his final paper on neuroplasticity using Bio-electric Medicine, which is another one of Philip’s passions, along with nutrition.

Philip is the Medical Acupuncture Council representative for the Acupuncture Regulatory Authority, and consultant clinician to several private clinics around the UK.

His search for the perfect blend of authentic East Asian medicine delivered functionally, combined with modern medicine and up-to-date scientific research came to an end when he discovered the Total Therapy Training Academy. To date, he has 30 certificates from Total Therapy alone, including CPD’s, Diplomas, and a Licentiate Degree, this isn’t including the courses he has re-attended multiple times! If you need to know anything about our courses, ask Philip!

His passion to learn and share knowledge in a relaxed environment will be evident from the second you meet him. Always approachable and happy to answer questions, Philip genuinely wants everyone to be the best possible version of themselves.

Previously Philip qualified and worked as a professional chef in many well-known establishments, before moving onto studying nutrition, personal training, and sports therapy & massage, which has continued to spiral into the well-rounded clinician he is today. Philip is an ex-competitive powerlifter and martial artist with 30-years of martial arts training in various styles, and currently does 6-8 hours of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsus per week along with 3 strength and conditions sessions.

In 2022 Philip had his first fitness photoshoot where he achieved low single digit body fat levels but is happy to be enjoying the food and fun on the Total Therapy student and staff team bindings evenings which happen throughout the year.

“Michelle is such an amazing person. She understands a lot about physical and mental pain, and her knowledge about this is unreal. She knows exactly how to release any kind of pain or unwanted tension, I have a build up of unwanted tension in my shoulder and have done for around 20 years, I never thought I could get rid of it, and no one else knew what was wrong, had scans , had a chiropractor, ect .. nothing, there was just tension and it was inflamed a lot most of the time, Michelle’s treatment is working slowly but surely, I love just going to see her. She is my inspiration. X”
