Axina Oy – Empowerment and well-being in a forest park

Axina Oy offers empowering well-being to individuals and communities through the Arboretum Magnolia tree landscape park and landscape design.

Axina Oy has been a family company in Lohja since 2011. We love what we do and we do what we love. Our goal is to create well-being by nurturing a diverse nature connection through Green & Blue Care activities in Metsäpuisto Arboretum Magnolia, an aesthetic and revitalizing 3 ha tree species park on the shores of Lake Lohjanjärvi. The park has a 1 km long, partially accessible themed wellness trail, several picnic terraces in the terrain, a summer café, and 2 PuuCees (another accessible). We offer wellness tours and vacations for different target groups. We also offer landscape design of green environments that support well-being and health for both private and public entities, designed by landscape architect Suvi Pohjola-Stenroos.

You can get acquainted with the Arboretum Magnolia as a wellness environment with the help of the following thesis in Finnish or FaceBook or on this website and online store.

Our experts

Suvi Pohjola-Stenroos

I have a degree in landscape architecture and a doctorate in veterinary medicine. I have studied horticulture both in Finland (Green Coach Horticulture Therapist, 15 cr) and in England (Horticulture Therapist, IV). Both my professional and leisure interests focus on the well-being of nature with the idea that “we are part of nature, a species among others. By taking care of nature in a long-term and balanced way, we build our own well-being and health ”. In our company Axina Oy, I design well-being-producing environments based on biophilic principles, including community and therapy gardens, and I lead empowering park walks and therapeutic gardening in the tree species park I founded at Arboretum Magnolia in Lohja. I work for the Board at Green Care Finland.

We have succeeded when we have increased our client’s nature experience, either in a forest park or by designing an environment that produces well-being.
