Healing Treatment

As a European qualified physiotherapist and healer with 35 years of experience working in Finland and Switzerland, I have been able to further develop my skills in the areas of Manual therapy, Visceral Osteopathy, Carnio Sacral, and Energy Treatments.


This education enables me to select and use the most promising techniques needed to empower your own self healing. I combine these techniques to come to the best and fastest improvements. I am a strong believer in hands-on therapy, which gives me the opportunity to support your self healing.

Our goal is to create a sacred space and environment for your healing. If you feel these healing treatments will resonate with you, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.

I am not registered in BC as a physiotherapist and do not offer physiotherapy as such.

Cranio Sacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction while improving the entire body's health and performance. This is one of the best methods I know to empower your self healing.

Visceral Osteopathy

With visceral manipulation, I address the interrelationship between function and structure among the internal organs as well as the muscular skeletal system.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is delivered with a hands-on approach as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, I use my hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction.

Acupoint Massage

Acupoint Massage is the practice of applying structured pressure and motion, either manually or with electrical aids, to specific points and meridians on the body.

Body Talk

Body Talk is an astonishingly simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body's energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended

Trigger Point Therapy

This is a manual therapy technique where I apply pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.

Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is a method of stimulating the reflex areas in the feet, hands, or ears that correspond to each gland, organ and part of the body. This treatment Includes a 15 minute warm foot bath with Epsom salts.

Happy Feet Massage

Our feet carry us for our entire lives. So how do we take care of our feet? Happy Feet Therapy will allow you to do just that.

Equine Massage

As homeopathic and natural remedies are quickly becoming the choice to treat injuries, massage has emerged in the forefront of modalities used. Equine Massage Therapy benefits are profound, and almost instantly a difference can be observed as the horse will begin to move more easily.

Healing with Horses

Experience the deep healing of horses.They have so much to offer us if we just let them. Their high sensitivity supports you to be what you are, without judgment

Equine Facilitated Learning

Equine facilitated learning is an experience where the student learns how to align their energy with the horse. Since horses are highly sensitive to the energy of humans, this method gives you the opportunity to deepen the awareness of your own authentic self

Bach Flower Remedies

This is a great natural method for balancing the soul-mind-body complex. 

About Us

About Piri

After completing my studies in Finland I became a qualified Physiotherapist. Working in Finland, Germany and Switzerland I gained a multitude of experience. I decided to start my own practice in Switzerland, and built up a team of 5 employees to meet the high demands. During this time I was able to expand my knowledge in healing treatments by studying various therapy concepts.


Here is a short summary of my major post-graduate studies
and qualifications:


Since May 2011 I have been living up on a hill in beautiful British Columbia with my family. (husband, two kids, dogs, cats, horses, rabbit and some visiting bears...)


For many years I have had so much pain in my hips that I have had to use many heavy duty pain killers to cope. I have had bone scans, etc. but no reason or solution has come to light to explain why I hurt so much. Most nights I would be woken up by 4 am in intense pain, and would have to take more T3's to get back to sleep. 

 When I got home from attending your retreat 'Experience Healing with Horses', I realized I had no pain in my hips, absolutely none! And believe it or not, I have had no pain in my hips since that weekend retreat, and have not had to take any T3's for the hip pain since. 

A huge thank you to your beautiful horses for their amazing
gift, and to you for the great weekend.

Happiness is not so much
in having as sharing.
We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.
