Hiding from the storm

It has truly been summer here. It’s all sunny and warm from 7:00AM to 4PM. Then one hour of thunder storm and back to sunny. It’s fine, the little rain. But as it happens I tend to be outside, biking home from work around the 4PM thunder. Today I managed to save myself from getting wet by waiting at a bus stop.

At lunch time it was a little better. There’s a nice park smack in the middle of the city center, a popular place to hang out, enjoy the sun and have a picnic. You can also try to catch some fish if you want to 🙂

Tampere is between two big lakes (Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi) and the river you can see in the picture is actually a rapid from Näsijärvi to Pyhäjärvi. The rapid stays open throughout the year, and it’s just pretty 🙂

I started this morning at the gym. I did some deadlifts, lunges and tried the ab wheel (still hate it). Not much to say, didn’t do any personal bests 🙂

After work I went to a friend to get my back massaged. My lower back has been bothering me a little. It’s nothing too much, but it’s annoying to feel pain in the right lower back when getting up from sitting down. My friend told me that I have some locks in my back and I should go and try ostheopathy. So maybe I try to find  one. Anyone been to one? How was it?

  1. Minä olen käyny, ku viime syksynä tuli toiseen etureiteen/nivuseen outo kiputila, joka ei menny levolla pois. Lopulta ite pähkäilin, että pakko olla joku virheasento lantiossa tms. ja menin osteopaatille. Tyyppi vaan katto ja paineli viis sekuntia ja totes mikä on vikana, sen jälkeen pistettiin kyseinen paikka ojennukseen ja lopuksi kävi vielä koko rangan läpi. Sen jälkeen olen käyny n. parin kuukauden välein, koska lihakset oli tottunu virheasentoon eikä ihan heti suostunu olemaan “normaalisti”. Nyt on nikamat niinku pitääki ja koko keväänki sain olla ilman mitään kipuja, kun virheasennon sai välillä korjattua tai ainakin pienemmäksi. Jos lukot tai virheasennot on ihan äsken tulleita, niin menee toki vähemmän aikaa, että tilanteen saa palautettua normaaliksi.
    Hoito itsessään oli aika mielenkiintosta. Olen tottunu hierojalla käymään, joten siihen verrattuna tuntu välillä, että mitään ei tapahdu. Paljon kaikenlaista heiluttelua ja vatkausta ja napsauttelua. Missään vaiheessa ei sattunu.
    Suomen osteopaattiliiton sivuilta löytyy viralliset osteopaatit, joilla on koulutus ja vakuutukset kunnossa.

  2. I have tried osteopathy from two different persons. First one just jerked my bones to their places. That stopped the pain but didn’t feel that good. And doesn’t help very long. The second one had different technique. She didn’t force anything. She just bushed a little from somewhere and same time waved me and had lots of other “friendly” techniques. She also looked the whole picture and didn’t only threat the pain spot. The pain is often coming from other place. Like my back pain was coming from my legs. I stopped seeing her because she is in Turku and that takes too much time from me to traveling.

    So there is at least two different kind of approaches to osteopathy. The second one had degree from university of applied sciences ( Helsinki ). I think the first one had hers from completely different kind of institute.
