The organisations that Glenis has helped include luxury cosmetic and drinks brands, hospitals, judicial institutions, charities and local authorities.

Glenis aims to continue research through a formally funded study of “the work environments and the frequency with which massage are carried out by beauty therapists working in large health spa environments” to more richly respond to HSE Labs call and provide preventative advice and measures of good practice for enforcing bodies, industry leaders and business managers alike.
