How has Smovey helped people?

Alana- Australia

We would like to share our experience with the hope we can help others. Our Daughter almost 4 years old has had on going issues with her bowels and suffers from constipation. Her main symptoms are abdominal bloating, lower back pain, trapped wind and pain on passing her bowel action with a result of her holding in her poo. In the past Alanna also suffered from explosive diarrhoea. We have recently received a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome and Alanna has been prescribed oral laxatives, one to promote relaxation and contraction of the bowel and the other to soften the bowel action. We have experienced an extremely frustrating time in finding the balance with this medication and Alanna has not had a normal bowel action since we can remember UNTIL we were introduced to and began using smovey rings .We are using them for almost 3 weeks now.

I am a registered nurse working in the area ofintellectual and physical disability and acquired brain injury so I do believe in and understand the value of medical assessment and intervention but after being with our GP, our Gastroenterologist , our health nurse and continence physio we found ourselves no further with relieving Alanna’s symptoms. All very professional people whom we respect but we still had to come home from each appointment and watch Alanna suffer on.

My Mum suggested smovey rings and she had them sent out to Perth to us. I then connected with Irene Tracey who has guided us and supported us in the use of smoveys for Alanna. Within 10 days we began to notice her tummy not as distended and we can actually hear the release of wind in her tummy after mostsessions. We celebrated when Alanna had the closest to normal bowel action last week .Our routine is a full body massage and focus on the abdomen and lower back. Alanna loves her smoveys and has taken ownership of them .She does however need encouragement to complete some of the sessions. Alanna has told me she feels good and laughs as she is using the smoveyrings.Her favourite teddy called sheepy even gets his go!!

I tried the smoveys and found the exercise very beneficial for general fitness and well- being. My Husband tried them to reduce tension in his shoulders and neck and found them excellent. We decided to buy a second pair of smovey rings we were so impressed .They have brought fun and laughter to our Family as well as results.

We still have a bit to go yet in achieving full relief for Alanna but we are delighted with results so far. We have begun to reduce Alanna’s medications and we hope to cease them fully with the help of smoveys.

We just need to keep going and use our smoveyseveryday…a sincere thank you to Irene for her genuine interest and complete support to us and to my Mum for suggesting them in the first place.

Pat Flavin - Tramore

Irene (Smovey Health): I came back to Ireland 6 weeks ago and one of the first people I went to see was Pat Flavin who had a terrible tragic fall off a horse three and half years ago. Pat was left in a wheelchair and after staying 6 months in Dunlaoighre rehabilitation and few more months in St.Pats rehabilitating in Waterford he was allowed home. Pat is still In his wheelchair and unfortunately In severe pain around his whole body, hands, feet, back, neck, you name it, he feels pain in it. Even though I hadn’t worked with anybody with as severe condition as Pat, I was confident that the Smoveys would offer him some sort of comfort but actually blown away by the massive improvement Pat has made in these 6 short weeks. I visit Pat once or twice a week to see his progress and every week I’m just astonished as how effective the Smoveys have been not just for him, but a huge help to his family and carers also as it’s such an easy tool to use. Here is Pats testimonial in his own words

“I was skeptical when Irene showed me these green rings first as I get calls every other day from people promising me they have the solution to my problems. Irene explained the theory behind the Smoveys and offered me a few weeks trial without Obligation to try so I had nothing to loose.

Irene showed me different exercises to help me gain some strength in my arms but this was quite difficult and tired me out. She then massaged my shoulders and back of neck which was a lovely sensation and released strains immediately which I was very surprised about. From damaged nerve endings, I get pains in all my fingers that all curl up so she massaged my hands front and back with the Smoveys and got great relief from that as the vibrations seems to loosen out the fingers and I could open my hands more. 6 weeks later, they are much better, while I can’t open my hands fully, they are a lot better and less painful than before the Smoveys.

I get a full body massage front and back and find this a massive help and I look forward to this treatment. The vibrations go through my entire body and loosen my stuff muscles and release a lot of my pain. What I love is that any of my family can do this once they were shown how to do it, I don’t have the hassle of removing any clothes as the vibrations go through the clothes and it’s extremely time effective. This is a huge advantage as I can get a 5 minute massage while sitting in my chair which will give me great relief whereas if I had to go down to the bed and take off my clothes; its so much hassle I’d wouldn’t bother asking. An added unexpected bonus is that I can ask my family or carers to massage my gluteus without anybody getting embarrassed. This brings relief for anybody in a wheelchair which I am sure some people never speak about out of embarrassment. I’ve never heard of or seen a tool like this and after 6 weeks of using it I highly recommend it.

I am still in pain but nothing like before I started using Smoveys and I personally recommend them as an excellent tool for anybody in a wheelchair and also for physios and occupational therapists to use on their clients.”

Nora Kennedy- Polymyalgia

Nora Kennedy was diagnosed six weeks ago with Polymyalgia Rheumatica. She came in to our office in Tramore for a demonstration and chat about a smovey. We work together for about 15 minutes to do light exercise and massage over Nora’s shoulders, hips and knees. She was so sceptical at the very start, however was very surprised with a benefits at the end. When she arrived to our office she was very stiff after nearly 2 hours driving. The massage helped her muscles relax and reduced pain in her shoulders. At the session she said that the vibrations really helped her relax and also decreased the pain in the right shoulder. We are delighted to see another happy customer, especially after the very first quick consultation. Nora is a committee member of I.C.A and she is so happy with the results of her smovey, she invited us to do presentation on Wednesday 26th of July in Templeneiry art culture centre, Tipperary.  If you would like further information on how smovey can help you, please check out www.smoveyhealth.com or email irene@smoveyhealth.com

Rose Fitzpatrick- back and shoulders tension

Rose Fitzpatrick suffer from back and shoulders tension. Her shoulders get tight and stiff. She got the demonstrations on smovey(massage and exercises) few days ago, she felt the difference literally after the session. Her shoulders are relaxed and looser. Rose came back yesterday to our office for consultation and again was so happy with a benefits at the end. We did some basic exercises and massage over Rose’s neck and shoulders. The massage helped her shoulders relax and loosen up the muscles. At the end of the session Rose said: “I can move, I can move my head, I can move my shoulders, and it’s just loosening everything up”. We are so happy to see another person satisfied of using smovey.
