What does sean-tuiscintí mean exactly here in this context - old (traditional) understanding ? And something else, this plural ending isn't in the dictionary.

The feet water of the old knowings/insights is always much healthier than psychotherapy.

Go raibh maith agat.

Does this imply that people used to peer into feet water to gain insights ? In the folktale I'm reading, the lady of the house and her daughter forgot to throw it out before going to bed, which gave the power to the Good People to come in and occupy the house. I was trying to find the Irish version of it and all I got was this quotation.

I'd think it refers to insights of traditional healing knowledge.
