Claire Ryan

Job Title: 
Network Chiropractor
Biography: 

Dr Claire has just returned to Ola this April 2016 after maternity leave with her second son Oscar. She has been a Chiropractor for over 10 years and has worked in many high quality clinics in this time. Her father is also a Chiropractor, and so, she has been lucky to know the benefits of spinal care from a young age. Dr Claire has also trained in many advanced techniques nationally and internationally, so that she knows the exact areas to contact on the spine to enhance health and ease in the body. She tailors her care to the needs of each individual using traditional chiropractic techniques as well as cranio-sacral, nutrition and life support. She is trained in paediatrics, dry-needling, kinesiology and network spinal analysis. She is also a yoga teacher and marathon runner as well as mother of two boys. Dr Claire is passionate about caring for people and families of all ages, and sharing this work with the wider community.

Claire knew she wanted to be a Chiropractor from the age of five. Having watched her Dad help many people with their health, she couldn’t imagine doing anything more satisfying and rewarding. Since graduating from her intensive five-year training in 2005, she has studied many techniques internationally within the chiropractic umbrella — from paediatrics to help with babies and young children to sacro-occipital technique, as well as learning the structural biomechanics that can affect our wellbeing in a very real way. Claire wanted to really understand what was at the root of physical dis-ease. She has come to master Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) as her primary technique. This is a powerful, gentle contact approach that invites the body to pay attention to and unwind the tension bound in our tissues. “It is very empowering” says Claire about NSA. “People are taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, less and less are they dependent on an external measure to take their ailment away. Their bodies are learning complex, intelligent strategies that sustain a more ‘easeful’ way of being in their day-to-day life. It’s amazing to watch this unfold... for those who wish to have relief from pain or greater experience of life - this works!”

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

"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!"
