My work as a healer is based on Finnish and Karelian traditional healing. These are the main source of my healing skills, knowledge and techniques.
In old traditions people believed that disease or hardship was transmitted to the human body for example from the forest, the water or an envious person. A healer was needed when discomfort entered someone´s body, created suffering and took the person out of balance.
The task of the healer was to strengthen the willpower and inner forces of the patient. Together they chased away the uninvited guest. Sometimes the sufferer of misfortune had done something wrong and forgiveness was needed. The goal of healing was to restore the balance, well-being and health of the client.
I apply these traditional skills and wisdom to the modern lifestyle and individual needs of my clients.
Presentation – FINNISH FOLK HEALING
I will introduce the primary ways of Finnish and Karelian folk healing wisdom. I will also explain and demonstrate how the origins of illness and body symptoms were traditionally traced and used for the healing process. Also I will talk about charms, rituals and other practices that were used to restore health.
In Finnish Folk Healing, we explore Finno-Ugric, Baltic-Finnic and Scandinavian healing traditions. Participants get a chance to explore their healing path through discussion, exercises, stories and mythical songs.
In Gold Within the Body, we study how our body signals its needs and discomfort. We learn to receive, interpret and follow these messages – to find the gold inside.
