Hi, my name is Ville-Veikko, I’m 49 years old. I’m a former professional athlete, having competed in long-distance running and steeplechase. I ended my career in 1998 at the age of 28.
Today, I work with the maintenance of the local sports center. My job gets quite physical sometimes and my arms are subjected to a lot of stress. In 2014, my arms started becoming sore and it got so bad that I went to the doctor. He said I had a tennis elbow and prescribed some meds, physical therapy, and exercise. None of this had any effect. I tried to work out at the gym despite the pain and that helped a little.
Being busy at work prevented me from working out regularly and the pain constantly got worse. My wrists became so sore that even small items would fall out of my hands because I had no strength in my hands due to the pain.
I had got to know Hannu Timonen during my active athletic career and when we met at the sports center, I told him about the trouble I was having with my arm. By the time I decided to go for his treatment, I had been suffering for four years.
The first treatment was painful but it was already a big help. After the second treatment, I was almost symptom-free and after the third treatment, I was completely symptom-free.
On my way out, I mentioned my tinnitus. It had been there for some time but the last month had been particularly difficult. Hannu promised to treat me for it the following week. It went away with just one treatment. Now I’m sure where I’ll go if my issues come back.
During my athletic career, I received all kinds of treatment and massage, so I have much experience in comparison. Hannu’s massage technique is unique. The effect is on a completely different level to other professionals in the field. There really is a difference between treatments.
I can recommend Hannu’s intensive course of treatment to everyone. If you’re not ready for it, you probably haven’t suffered long enough. I also bore my pain for many years and didn’t even get a medal for bravery.
