My Smovey Experience
Reluctantly, that's the best way of putting it, I started out on my Smovey journey !
I have lived with MS for the past 30 years having to wait 10 years to be diagnosed regrettably not here in Ireland but to be diagnosed in Canada where
my sister was living and who also has MS – we are affectionately called Irish twins with 13 months between us !! As with my diagnosis information and
treatment around MS and neurology was not wonderful back in the 90s and left a lot to be desired
So fast forward to 2017 and my husband was President of the local Chamber of Commerce and following a business after hours meeting he brought home a leaflet
advertising SMOVEY, so my reaction was 'oh here we go again, something else to try ' but so eventually I rang the no. due to my husband pestering me (thus why I
begin with the word RELUCTANTLY) to do so as the lady was very nice and she thought that smovey might be helpful as it was so effective with Parkinsons, OMG how
right Irene was, I went, in a short space of time , after 20 odd years of not being able to shower and with the help of a bath lift managed to take a bath to now being
able to stand in my wet room and have a shower, it was just an incredible transformation ! I could balance and with the aid of hand grips manage to shower myself !!
Irene was so encouraging and inspiring , her personal attention to each of us was wonderful, as each of us has various different symptoms despite all having neurological
conditions. Irene's understanding of our conditions and neurology was just incredible due to her various studies etc.
Training with smovey has taught me that our recovery and wellness is in our own hands, nobody else can do it only myself ........ ME
So thank you so much for giving me a new lease of life Irene
Much love and sincere thanks
