Traditional treatments & slow life in the Archipelago

Come and experience the Finnish slow life and folk healing culture at Kuppari-Hanna’s Natural Health Spa. Situated in the Finnish country-side Archipelago, a traditional log cabin with sculptures and folk-art create a timeless and warm atmosphere. The Finnish word ‘parantola’ means a place where you heal.

Help your body, mind and soul heal. Do it like we Finns do. Choose from a variety of treatments such as sauna, wet-cupping, massage, shamanic relaxing and bone-setting. In Kuppari-Hanna’s Parantola modern medicine and traditional healing go hand-in-hand and all treatments meet the highest standards of hygiene. I am one of the authorized (by the Valvira-National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health) wet-cupping therapists here in Finland.

On December 10th 2019, Kuppari-Hanna´s Natural Health Spa turned 15. It has been an incredible path of an individual person who already at your age wanted to cherish Finnish Sauna culture and Healing traditions with a tight and genuine connection to the forest. Due to the celebration I shall create a blog in English - now my stories healing, folklore and knowledge on old healers are only in Finnish. This will change during the year 2020. I feel it important to tell the world my stories about our ancestral ways of living and our ways to heal our body & soul by using conscious intention and forest. It does not contradict with modern medicine, which we healers here in Finland truly respect. It gives some extra emotional resources and the feeling of owning your own destiny and inner power.

What comes to me. I belong to the forest. I am not a wild-woman living in the city. I live in the remote area in the Finnish Archipelago. I hunt. (I apologize vegans, I do give respect to your ideology, too). I am a mother of three boys. I live free and offgrid. I live my own way. Welcome to visit my world. The easiest way to book a whole package is to contact Visit Naantali.
