Salvatore 'Sav' Alu
“Sav” graduated from the College of Osteopaths in London with a Bachelors Degree in Osteopathy and during this time gained additional skills and qualifications in medical acupuncture, taping and strapping and kinesiotaping. Prior to graduating as an Osteopath, he worked as a personal trainer and a sports and remedial therapist in health clubs across London for more than ten years.
Sav's passion for Osteopathy began from his own personal passion for football. After suffering many injuries and seeing an Osteopath for treatment, he was amazed with the results. This fascination led him to want to help others in pain with similar injuries. While training to be an Osteopath, Sav worked as the Head Sports Therapist of his local Semi Professional Football team for two seasons where he learned to merge and apply his exercise rehabilitation knowledge with his Osteopathic skills to provide excellent management and advice to everyone.
Sav's treatment aims reflect his own passion for playing sport and the importance of being active. He strives to help everyone from athletes to the general public to improve their function and movement and to reduce their pain, improving their overall health and well being.
"I picked up a back injury and was recommended to come here. Absolutely brilliant. My osteopath by the name of Sav is brilliant. He’s really helped me with my back and also recommended other home work outs to do to also aid my back. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done. The staff are friendly and the facility’s are spot on. Highly recommended." Dan Rich, Stevenage.
"I have been going to Osteopathy First for many years now and could not recommend them highly enough! As a bit of an adrenaline junkie and petrol head I have managed to injure myself more times than I would care to count. Each time I have gone to Osteopathy first and they have always helped me to a speedy recovery.
I have to say a massive thank you to Hannah and Rob for all the help they have given me over the years, and most recently to Sav who got me back to race fit when I hurt my lower back only two weeks before my last race. After not thinking I’d be able to race he got me back strong enough to get my best results of the year.
Couldn’t be happier with their service and no doubt I’ll be back to see them again." Dean Goggins, Stevenage.
