About Anu

From hospital midwifery to Heket, House of Midwives and House of Acupuncture

I graduated in 1990 as a midwife and got to work at the Kätilöopisto Hospital. I became interested in Chinese medicine and graduated as a TCM acupuncture therapist in 1998. My children were born in 1998, 2001, 2003 and 2007. With my own experiences (pregnancies, births and menopause), a new perspective was opened up to human resources and internal body knowledge. In 2009 was born entrepeneur company named Heket, under which I am still working. In 2014, Heket and Yebomama merged into the House of Midwives. In 2018 House of Acupuncture was born, which specializes in acupuncture treatments and Chinese medicine training.

Anu is a gentle, skillful and safe midwife. In addition, he has a profound and comprehensive knowledge of Chinese medicine and acupuncture. And has produced well-being in preventative and acute illnesses.

Treatment Intensity

In acute ailments treatments should be twice weekly, in chronic ailments once a week.

Usually you can be prepared for a set of treatments

  • 3-6 treatments with mild ailments
  • 6-12 treatments with multiple ailments or a larger problem
  • 12-24 treatments with multiple large ailments

The number of treatments needed varies depending on how you initially respond to it. Sometimes one single treatment can be helpful.

Treatment and Afterlife

When you come to the appointment I will chart your ailments – when they began, where they are felt) and I will listen to different pulses. I will make a diagnosis based on the principals of Chinese Medicine and treat you accordingly.

During the acupuncture treatment you can lie or sit. Sometimes the needles or acupoints can be heated with moxibustion or gua-sha can be used.

How the treatment is felt

Acupuncture needles are tiny, so inserting the needles is barely be felt. Once the needles are in their places you may feel a slight pressure or heat but no pain.

After the treatment

After a treatment you may feel drowsy. The ailments should fade away within a day. Sometimes you feel very tired afterwards, but the ailments should not strengthen. You should take it easy after treatment and avoid swimming, bathing and excessive physical activity.


Side effects of acupuncture

Possible side-effects from acupuncture treatment may be a bruise, a drop of blood when withdrawing the needle or a slight red ring around the place of puncture. Very rarely and when unprofessionally treated: lung puncture, infection at puncture site if aseptic practise has not been applied or a needle breaks.
