Glen Daniels M.Ost
GOsC Reg: 7831
I have been involved in manual therapy since 2006 after making the decision to dedicate my professional life to helping others. As well as being an Osteopath and Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist, I’m also a husband, father and charity volunteer. I truly believe that the human body has the innate ability to seek health and wellness. Reducing muscle and joint tension and improving circulation enables the body to self-heal.
Since birth I’ve had a genetic eye condition which resulted in me being severely sight impaired. Osteopathy and Massage Therapy has been the perfect occupation. These professions are much more about what you can feel rather than see. A decrease in one sense results in an increase in another, the sense of touch that is so important for diagnosis and treatment has been my gift.
With a background in training and competing in Olympic Style Weightlifting for 10 years to Commonwealth Level. I now take part in Yoga and Running.
I first completed a one year BTEC Level 4 Diploma in Sports & Remedial Massage from the North London School of Sports Massage. This was immediately followed by a four-year full-time Master of Osteopathy undergraduate degree at the British School of Osteopathy. In 2013 I also became a fully qualified Kinesio Taping Practitioner.
I am an avid fundraiser for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, raising nearly £11.000 for this great cause already. I have undertaken a 112km trek across the Sahara Desert and took part in the Bupa Great South Run 2013.

I graduated from the University College of Osteopathy with a masters in osteopathy. While studying I also became qualified as a level 5 soft tissue therapist. My interest in osteopathy comes from having great Osteopaths treating me for the various injuries I acquired over the years through the various activities that I have participated in and in maintaining my overall health.
I like treating all types of people and enjoy the investigation and enquiry needed to find the best treatment to support people on their journey to optimum health.
Dilar Kaya M.Ost
Deep Tissue Massage
I graduated at University College of Osteopathy with a masters in Osteopathy. I have been involved in manual therapy since 2018. I am also a qualified massage therapist, specialising in Sports, Deep, Swedish and Pregnancy massage.
I use a structural osteopathic approach whilst adapting this context to the patient’s lifestyle and goals, taking into consideration activity levels, sleep, posture and stress. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with a range of musculoskeletal complaints, treating people of all ages. I use a combination of different techniques in my treatments and every treatment is specialised for the individual.
My transition to osteopathy stems from a desire to help others and allow them to be the best version of themselves.
I am the dedicated sports massage therapist at the clinic. My interest in massage was first sparked when I experienced its wide-ranging benefits following an injury while training for a half marathon. Once I started having regular massage, I realised it was playing a major role in my rehabilitation.
My clients come from all walks of life. You don’t need to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. Injury and pain can result from training as well as daily life activities and postural habits. I am passionate about helping people alleviate their symptoms and manage long term problems.
I am qualified at level 5 in sports massage & remedial massage therapy, and level 4 in holistic massage. I like integrating a range of techniques into each treatment to help clients achieve their goals.
Mona Choaie M.Ost
I graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a Masters in Osteopathy and a Diploma in Naturopathy. I have undergone additional post-graduate training in Osteopathy, in paediatrics and women’s health.
I work with both private and GP referred patients, treating all ages from newborns to the elderly. I have a keen interest in assisting women in their pregnancy journey.
I believe in treating the body as a whole, to restore and repair structure for optimal function. I use a variety of holistic treatment methods including structural and cranial osteopathy, individualised exercises, nutritional advice, mindfulness, and breathing techniques, all tailored to my patients.
I am a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
