Glenn Sontag

Glenn worked for the NHS between 1990 and 2002, in various clinical roles. He worked as a cardiac technician in the operating theatres of The Royal Brompton Hospital and later became clinical research technician to a consultant cardiologist. He gained his BSc in physiology in 1996.

In 1997, he transferred his clinical research skills to The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where he worked on various projects within the HIV unit. His outside interest of massage led him to obtain an ITEC qualification in body massage (therapeutic) in 2000.

In 2000, during a sabbatical, Glenn gained a diploma in ancient Thai massage in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. Returning to the UK in 2001, Glenn gained his sports massage qualification from the awarding body FSMT (Fellowship of Sports Massage Therapists).

Glenn studied osteopathy between 2003 and 2008 at The London School of Osteopathy, graduating with a first class honours degree.

His appreciation for the NHS and patient access to complimentary medicine fuelled his research project – looking into the effects of osteopathy on those living with HIV – which won acceptance for presentation at a chiropractic, osteopathy and physiotherapy conference.

Glenn acts as training facilitator for various NHS Trusts providing manual handling skills to various healthcare staff, with the aim of reducing risk of injury at work and prolonging health.

In July 2016, Glenn gained his PG Certificate in Animal Osteopathy, whilst he continues to study animal osteopathy at Masters level with the European School of Osteopathy in Boxley, Kent.
