“Movement is my inspiration and freedom is the result. I am listening, thinking, sensing and feeling movement - until the practice sits with the whole persona. This is when we are ready to progress towards a new balance until one feels totally comfortable in one’s body but also understands why and how we achieve this. This is when the joy to move steps in. This is my life. "

Finnmotion improves work well-being and the functionality of organisations


Our story is based on a true story “from difficulties to victory” and a desire to offer everyone a possibility to feel free.

Finnmotion continues the story of Method Putkisto, which teaches the ability to assess, feel, recognise and bravery to “ponnistaa” (Finnish word for ‘get up and go’) - daring to fly towards the new.

We break boundaries with logic. We believe interaction is a main force for renewal in relation to ourselves, to each other and to every possibility we have to influence our world positively. 


Our company was founded in 1993 by Marja Putkisto. Our core business is producing and further re-developing new well-being services. In these, Marja combines science, dazzling technical skills and confidence with a practical form, together with the skills that only centuries of experience can provide. Her inner builds intuition and works like an absolute note to the ear and all that she does is rational and logical.

In 2017 Marja Putkisto’s focus moved to B2B and she developed a work well-being service together with a modern model for leadership. She integrated her knowledge and vision for the use of companies to show how to embody it to a model of productivity. That same year the very first Posture Angels were trained along with Finnmotion mentors. The first articles regarding Finnmotion were published in 2017 followed by a 2018 article from Business Finland.

Values and targets

Our values guide us towards the target. Finnmotion’s core concept is to provide a way to discover new perspectives. Marja is personally involved to challenge the criteria’s ‘how to measure well-being’ and, by doing so, she has opened up new positive ways for discussion on how to achieve a greater well-being balance in life.

We offer a concept where the individual and company are in harmony with nature’s laws, time requirements, trends and humanity. Our service communicates accurately with time, the latest knowledge, terminology and values of this era.

Finnishness has built a unique Nordic base for her work. Strength, sensitivity and trust can be seen in every action.

We are in contact with change leaders, business coaches, scientists and follow closely influential thinkers across the world. We send this information to our clients, companies and offer feedback. An important factor is Marja’s true life story as a change leader and pioneer and how the Method Putkisto brand was created.

Method Putkisto Original has moved on and become an evolving holistic, body and mind balancing concept.

Best for life - be free to move!

Our core target remains always the same: being free to move throughout one’s life. Our sincere wish is to strengthen any human to achieve his/her potential which is in harmony to one’s personality and frees us to live a rich life.

Our values: “purposefulness, meaningfulness, results, together, joy and optimism” are the heart for our operation, actions and function.

These simple tools provide the most meaning for our world - the ones that free resources and redirect the energy.

We believe in humanity as a base for success. For us boundaries create possibilities and clarify our move from the old to the new. Often our ideas transform to become reality and this creates enthusiasm.

"Marja is no doubt the top innovator of our time developing the way we think and approach our body and movement in Finland. She is a genius to understand the effects and create the whole components and, most of all, practical programmes which everyone can follow. Marja’s vision has re-designed thinking of the body over three decades"
