WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE AND AFTER A KALEVALA BONESETTING TREATMENT
Quick notes for Kalevala bonesetting treatment
Before the treatment
- Avoid using perfumes.
- Don’t come if you are drunk, hung over, in a flu or if you have fever or other illness.
- Aim to be on time so the following customers can also be on time.
- If you are running late, contact me with an SMS or an email.
After the treatment
- Drink fluids, more than usual. Water is superior and adding a little sea salt helps, too.
- No sauna, heavy sweating, excessive coffee/tea usage or alhocol for the next 24 hours. Seriously.
- Take it easy on the physical side for the next couple of days. Your body needs it.
- If possible, go for casual walks or move around a bit otherwise. This helps in recovery.
Can you treat me?
Probably yes, but there are a few conditions that either prohibit treatment or need a more experienced Kalevala bonesetter’s expertise. If you are unsure, what your situation is, please contact me!
Treatment might not be possible if you have any of the following:
- recent injuries (bone fractures, muscle tears etc.)
- skin infekstions
- severe heart condition
- carotid artery constriction
- enlarged thyroid gland
- tumour or cancer
- severe osteoporosis
- HIV infection
- first trimester of pregnancy
- first 3 months after child-labour
- under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- spondylolysis, spondylolistesis
- nerve damages
- Marevan medication (requires a balanced dosage)
- artificial joint (treatment is still possible, but might need to be modified)
- vaccination taken under 2 weeks ago
Not all of these prohibit the treatment, but it’s good to make sure by openly discussing about these with the bonesetter.
How long does a treatment take?
For adults the treatment takes roughly 1,5 hours, but it’s good to prepare for two hours to avoid surprises. For children the usual treatment length is around one hour, but the same “prepare for an extra half an hour” is a good rule of thumb.
How should I dress for treatment?
You can wear the same clothes to a Kalevala bonesetting treatment as you would wear to a full body massage. The treatment is done on bare skin. There is no special dress code, but short underpants help in treating the muscles in the lower limbs. For women having a bra that opens from the back makes the treatment a bit easier. If you have long hair, having the necessary accessories for a quick ponytail helps. Bringing your own loose socks on a treatment is a sign of a true professional.
Do I have to be naked?
No. You are mostly covered during the entire treatment and only the parts that are being treated shown.
