When it comes to supporting your health, nothing quite matches Finlandia’s selection, customer service, and expertise.
Over 45 years ago, Finlandia began as a pharmacy with natural selections. Today, Finlandia is known as one of the pioneers in the health industry for our approach to conventional western medicine and alternative medicine.
At Finlandia Pharmacy, you can discuss your condition with our fully licensed pharmacists, and they will help design a health plan for you. Our pharmacists understand the need for prescriptions and the use of conventional medicine, but they also understand that some people want to use a more natural route when possible. Our pharmacists can utilize the knowledge and the selection of both worlds!
