Traditional Treatments

Traditional medicine comprises knowledge systems that developed over generations within various societies before the era of modern medicine. Remedies such as traditional bone setting treatment, cupping, different massages, baths, herbal treatment, energy treatment and healing with hands offered by natural healers form an integral part of traditional medicine. Natural healers remind us that nature does not need us, it is us who need nature. Natural healing is based on deep inner knowledge. Natural healers are seers who are able to read people in distress.

Traditional Cupping

In Finland, cupping has been known already in the 15th century. The first written accounts of cupping are dated back to the mid-1600s. Cupping gives a powerful cleansing to the body as the so-called “bad blood” is removed from the patient’s system. The stimulating effects of cupping make the body release endorphin, and the treatment leaves a lasting, relaxed sense of well-being into the whole body. Hence, cupping activates the self-healing powers of the body to work for the enhancement of the patient’s health. The number of horns used is 20-30, depending on the patient.
