Kalevala bone-setting

Kalevala bone-setting is an effective method for treating and preventing musculoskeletal disorders based on the Finnish traditional treatment method, as well as general rules relating to anatomy and physiology.

The idea behind the treatment is that the person is a structural and functional whole and should also be treated holistically.

At the beginning of the treatment, the bone-setter tries to unravel the cause of discomfort or pain and analyze the causes of body imbalance. The support structures are then put in place by soft handling, taking advantage of their natural mobility and the human body. Kalevala bone-setting is performed without pinching or sudden movements.


Mobilization causes an improvement in the mobility of the joints, muscles and connective tissues. The tissue fluid and blood circulation are improved, and the nerves are freed from possible pinching conditions.


The effects on metabolism and the nervous system reflect an improvement in functional capacity and quality of life.


Kalevala bone-setting has yielded good results, for example:

* In conditions which cause lower limb pain: correcting incorrect positions of the feet, ankles, knees and hips.

* Improving conditions associated with lower back pain, such as sciatica and SI-joint misalignments.

* scoliosis.

* In conditions which cause upper back pain: in the treatment of misaligned vertebrae and the problems caused by them.

* For shoulder and neck pain: in the treatment of headache, dizziness and migraine.

* In conditions which cause upper limb pain: in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and shoulder pain.

* Problems in head area: issues with bruxism (clenching teeth), tension headaches and vision problems. 

What is a sufficient amount of treatments?

Usually, pain or other ailments are relieved after a single treatment. If the body has been in an unbalanced state for a long time, then the number of treatments needed usually ranges from 2 to 5, depending on the nature of the client’s conditions. A suitable time between treatments is 1.5 to 2 weeks. Once the situation has improved sufficiently, the treatment interval can be extended. When the person comes for treatment for the first time, they will also receive an assessment of the need for possible additional treatments. Home care instructions can often include helping the person maintain the achieved treatment results and speed up their rehabilitation and normalization of their condition.
