Tamami Benjamin

Job Title:

Japanese Reflexology

Tamami has developed a unique approach to healing combining Eastern knowledge, Shiatsu, Western reflexology and lymphatic drainage, working from the foot to the back of the knee, using reflexology points and nerve endings.

The treatments identify imbalances in the body’s energy (Qi) and blood flow, improve circulation and support the elimination of toxic elements and deposits.

The therapy is deeply relaxing and effectively allows the body to restore itself to better function and reestablish its natural connection to the earth through the foot. Tamami believes in the importance of self care, and treatments include advice on diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques. Sessions take into account the whole person, assist the recovery process and promote a sense of wellbeing and harmony.

Tamami was the administrative director and principal therapist of the Yojoen Holistic Retreat Centre, Nagano, Japan.  She has a wealth of experience in holistic/integrated medicine working with clients of all ages.  She is a mother of 3 boys (all home birthed), a trained macrobiotic and wholefood chef, she leads Japanese cookery workshops including shio koji, sushi and miso making.

Tamami originally trained and qualified in Japan in 1992 and re-qualified in the UK in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Reflexology (receiving distinction in all areas).

She is a full member of The Association of Reflexologists with practices in Devon and Cornwall.

Thanks to Claire and Network Spinal Chiropractic my life has changed on so many levels in the few months I have attended. I am a qualified R.N for the past forty years,studying Western,Chinese,Tibetan and Ayurvedic methods of healing but only Network is a genuine holistic framework of healing. I can honestly state this from an experiential point of view as it has affected my life psychologically,physically,emotionally and spiritually for the better. The treatment encourages growth and increases human potential,it opens doors of perception to allow evolving to become a natural step in progress,it all seems effortless as long as the patient is of an open mind and welcomes change. Psychologically I am more conscious,focused,compassionate and equanimous with an increasing positive and loving nature. Physically, I am healthier and fitter, after starting a strict vegetarian diet,restarting Qi Gong and feel stress free- as you are aware my work can be very stressful. Spiritually, I have resumed meditating and rediscovered my thirst for knowledge with a passion I never thought was possible,all of this in just a few short months,astounding progress! My relationships have improved,finances and overall well being have all been radically affected and I thank YOU for helping me to achieve all his and soo much more. However,the biggest insight is there is no more I,Me and Mine but a knowledge of a universal consciousness whereby we will all strive to improve relationships with one another and evolve as a species,A Planetary Consciousness for the benefit of all, With love and Heartfelt Appreciation Martina

Dr Claire is very professional and skilled, within one session I was free of pain, walking straighter and felt more ease in my body. Ive recommended her to dozens of people. I feel lucky to have found her to support me with any aches or pains that present themselves.

"I had the great fortune of meeting chiropractor Claire Ryan as a speaker at a parenting conference recently. She is so engaging and passionate about her field. After two years of getting little help through the NHS, she has already done more for my toddler after two visits to Ola. Jasmine on reception is great, too. She gets down on the floor to play with my toddler to help him feel at ease on arrival. Claire is great with him, and he enjoys being treated by her. That have a great rapport. To my toddler, Claire is putting everything right, one “pop pop” at a time! (I believe the technical term for the instrument is an Activator) My only regret is not finding her sooner!"

"I have a double curvature of the spine (scoliosis), and first went to Claire what must be approximately 9 years ago when I was having multiple problems, for which I was needing to be prescribed diclofenac. After weekly visits for a duration, Claire ‘sorted me out’. It is necessary / advisable for me to receive an adjustment every 4 to 5 weeks, to maintain my spine. I am certain that if I did not, I would end up in the same state again."
