Tami Benjamin-Kanning has been a Licensed Electrologist since early 2006. She is licensed in Oregon with the required 600 hours that she received at The American Institute of Education in Long Beach, CA in 2005. She continues to expand her knowledge by attending seminars and continuing education in electrology, as well as many other medical and alternative medical treatments. Tami heartily welcomes everyone and wants people of color and LGBTQIA+ people to know they are in a safe and welcoming environment.
Tami became an electrologist following in her mother’s and sister’s footsteps. Doing electrolysis came naturally to Tami, having grown up around it.
Prior to becoming a licensed electrologist, Tami worked as an herbalist in Montana for 10 years. She owns an herbal manufacturing company called Body’s Choice Herbs, that makes blends of herbs and flower essences in tincture form.
Tami is married and has three grown children. She enjoys travel, visiting the ocean and continuing to learn about indigenous plants & people, and about medicine and the human body.
“The most rewarding part of being an electrologist,” Tami says, “is getting to watch my clients’ self confidence grow with each treatment. The results can be enjoyed right away, and it is great to see them leaving happy. Whether it’s because of self-consciousness, or just because it’s convenient to have an extra set of eyes to find those hairs, they all leave feeling better—and that’s very gratifying!”
