Abstract [en]

The chapter outlines how nature and health are employed in the commodification of ritual healing in late modern Sweden. New ritualized practices have developed which are aimed at the modern man. How do these new rituals connect to health and nature and how are tradition, body, mind, place and locality represented within these practices?
