Values and ethics

Folk healing and conventional healthcare

In Kuppari-Hanna’s Parantola conventional medicine and traditional healing go hand-in-hand. People often turn to alternative treatments when conventional healthcare has been unable to offer a good option or has failed to find a proper diagnosis. In my work as a folk healer I can support and help you recover after a conventional treatment such as surgery or heavy medication. Folk healing offers a holistic approach to taking care of your health. This is a low-threshold place to get yourself heard, touched and seen as you are.

All treatment sessions are documented in my customer files for later research on Finnish folk healing methods. Investigating the conditions under which these healing methods are beneficial or unbeneficial. The register is only for research and will not be used for any commercial purposes.

Ethics, hygiene and safety

All the treatments are safe and meet modern standards of hygiene enforced by the Finnish Health authority Valvira. All instruments and blood cups are sterilized in an autoclave that is regularly tested with different indicators. Wet (blood) cupping is safe when using sterile instruments and when you do not have any medication that affects your blood coagulation or serious illness that makes you too fragile to lose small amounts of blood.

Ecology and accessibility

Kuppari-Hanna’s Parantola is a place for wellbeing and healing – I will not sell you any commercial health products. I will also make sure that the treatments I use are the most beneficial for your situation.

Ecological values are high in the list of priorities at Kuppari-Hanna’s Parantola. The log cabin was hand built locally by Hirsitikka and is heated using solely wood and wind-power. The cabin is equipped with a modern dry toilet and herbal soaps. I aspire to take highly sensitive people and their needs into consideration. Kuppari-Hanna is easily accessible for people with disabilities
