Finnish Manual Therapist comes to the rescue! Now Maarit can resume work again.
“I wasn’t able to sleep more than 3-4 hours per night as I would be awakened by the pain.” Says mother of 5 Maarit Klint, 39 yrs of age from Gothenburg, Sweden. “But the next day after my first session with Hannu I had slept, and was full of energy. This was the first time in many years I had actually slept an entire night.”
Maarit had suffered from pains in her lumbar back for the past 15 years. She describes it as a burning pain that slowly crept up and spread throughout her back, up to her shoulders. “I didn’t feel good at all and my hands felt extremely weak. If I were to sit down in my chair, the pain would start within five minutes.”
Working as a cleaner became impossible. Maarit ended up going on sick leave, receiving medication, and having to put up with endless treatments with no real benefit. Only last year Maarit was given the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Her treatment consisted of painkillers, rehabilitation, and having to, just learn to live with the pain. “But I haven’t even hit 40 yet.”
Maarit’s Mom happened to read an article about Finnish manual therapist Hannu Timonen. This year, in January Maarit traveled over to Turku in Finland for her first session.
“This wasn’t an easy treatment for me. I was so sensitive and sore after the treatment, and it took me a few days before I started to feel better. Not even a week had passed and Maarit was able to make up her bed and clean up the entire house without having to spend the next couple of days in bed with her usual pains.
“It really feels as if the pain just vanished.” Being so pleasantly surprised Maarit went and booked two more sessions in March with Hannu. “After these I can honestly admit that my health is now at 90%. I’ve turned over a new leaf, I’m full of energy and can do so much more now.”
Maarit is planning her fifth and final session with Hannu to become fully symptom free. But already now she has gone back to work securing a new job.
