Tuuli in Virittämö

My name is Tuuli Viri and I am the entrepreneur in Virittämö.

I have graduated as an osteopath this year from Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki. Till this day and during my 4 years of studies, I have already treated about 150 clients osteopathically. 

 I am also a registered nurse with  over 15 years of experience: in pediatrics, emergency room, obstetric ward, out-patient hospital and operation room. 

I have also studied WHO's studies in breastfeeding and early interaction. 

As an osteopath I have a holistic approach to all my clients. This means that clients benefit from all my knowledge in osteopathy and experience in nursing. I am always interested in listening, because that is the key to understand every individual.  We are all influenced by mind, body, spirit and our  enviroment. 

I am pro LGBTQ+ rights and everybody is wellcome to Virittämö just the way they are ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🤍🤎. "  

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy and after giving birth 

There are multiple symptoms that occur during pregnancy. For example low back pain and hip pain, discomfort in pubic symphysis, pain in sacro-iliac joint, reflux, and general fatigue are symptoms that osteopathic treatment can ease. 

Growing fetus and body's accommodation to the weight carried anteriorly can affect movement functionality of mother-to-be. This accomodation can also cause restrictions of mobility. These restrictions can often be relieved with gentle osteopathic treatment.

Postpartum osteopathic treatment focuses on attending to the needs of a mother having recently given the birth. 

The pelvic and spine area accommodate during pregnancy and usually need special attention after pregnancy.

Paediatric Osteopathy

(eg. osteopathic treatment for infants, children and adolescents)

During the first years of life there are many anatomical, physiological and psychological changes that occur rapidly within growth. 
As childhood is a stage of  constant development, the body  is easily affected by internal and external influences.

Virittämö offers osteopathic treatment also for children of all ages: from newborns to teenagers. The techniques used in pediatric osteopathic treatment are gentle and safe and always done with the co-operation of the child and parent.

Paediatric visits contain interview about the child's wellbeing, clinical examination, osteopathic examination and osteopathic treatment, planning of continuing visits and advice for home-care. In every visit parents are also supported in early interaction. 

All Virittämö's paediatric appointments are in Kairaportti location on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

First visit is always 60 minutes long. Continuing visits for children are 45 minutes long, though one always chooses the 60 minutes time slot.
