About me

I am a Finnish osteopath and yoga teacher working in Mijas Costa and Fuengirola area.                                                          IMG_9673

Before osteopathy entered my life I was giving yoga classes and often my clients asked for advice for their ailments. This opened up in me a yearning to learn more about how the human body functions. I felt that while yoga is a wonderful way to maintain health, it’s not necessarily the most useful option for treating pre-existing conditions. I, however, desired to be able to help and when I first learned of osteopathy I was drawn to it. Studying osteopathy gives a comprehensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and you treat using your hands, which sounded very appealing to me. I began the four-year-long full-time course at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland and graduated in the spring of 2017. The studies were demanding, but the journey into osteopathy has been ever inspiring. The journey continues and every patient brings an opportunity to learn something new.

In addition to osteopathy and yoga I have great interest in music, meditation, nature walks, dance and water sports. I have also studied Spanish and history of art at The University of Leicester in England and graduated in 2008. Art and interest in languages and different cultures remain still as part of my leisure time activities. I have also lived in Australia and my dream country, New Zealand for a couple of years during my youth. From that time I have taken with me a desire to live my life with a laidback attitude.
