How has Smovey helped people?

Tina

Thank you for introducing me to smovey almost two years ago now. When I started using smovey I was reasonably fit & in good health, but suffered with stiffness and tension in my neck and shoulders also lower back trouble from time to time. I started using smovey on a daily basis as an exercise and massage tool, within a matter of a week the tension and stiffness in neck & shoulders was gone, I had more energy and my mood had improved, the feel good factor from using smovey became infectious and a year later I trained to become a Smovey Coach so I could pass on the benefits of this fantastic Health & Wellness tool to others.
In the past year as a coach I have seen amazing results in people, with some of them coming off their medication. In a time when people are finally taking back control of their own health & wellness smovey is a wonderful tool to use on a daily basis in the comfort of their own home.
So here’s to continued good health,
Thanks again Irene

I was diagnosed with Parkinson some time ago.

I first heard about Smoveys in the middle of January. I received a set of Smoveys on a trial basis. Right from day one I could not believe how improved my posture was.

When I heard about the five week course I applied straight away. This course was a revelation to myself and my family. We realized that Parkinson could be dealt with. The professional manor of Irene Tracey and her team was awesome.

The encouragement to everyone in the group was brilliant I am now using the Smoveys every morning without fail, and would highly recommend them .

I have my smoveys approximately 2 months and I bought them as I heard they could benefit my physical movement as I have parkinsons.

I find my posture improving daily with using them and my hands also as they are encouraged to swing when walking.  Before using smoveys My hands and posture were  very rigid, I feel free now when using them.  They are also good for making your arms stronger as you are carrying a pound extra in each hand.

Just want to thank you once again for introducing smovey s to me.

As you may remember I  was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s in April 2017.

After the initial shock and sadness I set about looking for ways to help manage my symptoms and which would work with my medication.

I can honestly say the smoveys fitted the bill perfectly. I have them two months now and this is the best I ‘ve felt in a long time. My left arm that was hanging limp for so long is now moving with me when I m walking . All my family have noticed this improvement. I also use the smovey s as a massage tool to ease pain and stiffness which I get especially after a long car journey. I feel stronger since I started using them and my balance and gait have also improved.  To be honest I would not my have believed they could have made such a difference to a condition such as Parkinson’s especially as I myself am a nurse working in a nursing home and help residents with Parkinson’s on a daily basis. I can only hope word will spread about their benefits as I know the difference in quality of life since I was introduced to them.Please keep up your fantastic work it is really making a difference.

Thanks again for everything

The smoveys are the best investment I ‘ve made in a long-time such a simple yet ingenious tool.

Regards for now

Hi Irene.

I have my Smovey since September 2017 I bought because I thought it would help with my exercise and i find it very helpful when I do my exercise every day it actually is a great benefit to me to get moving in different ways it is a friend to take up every day I wouldn’t be without it

Kind Regards

I cannot thank you enough for introducing me to Smovey

I got Smovey back in September and due to hospital visits and fatigue I didn’t start using it properly until February, sadly to my regret, as I have made so much progress in a couple of months and I could have been using them all along, anyway no point in crying over spilt milk !

Smovey has become an essential part of my life and if for some reason I do not exercise with it I can feel the difference immediately and if I am fatigued I will start swinging them and after ten minutes I’m feeling the benefit – the most incredible effect I have experienced is massaging my legs with them as I walk with a limp due to a dropped foot and after gentle massage on my leg I can actually lift it properly off the floor

My physio was here on Friday with me and he was amazed at the way I can now lift my foot and not drag it along ! It is so encouraging, after the length of time that  I have been unable to walk properly,  to start to feel I am maybe going to walk properly again but apart from that there’s a psychological effect also with plants a feeling of HOPE in my mind and that is an essential part of living with a long term illness for me

Irene I will finish as I started thanking you sincerely for changing my life

Best wishes  Eileen Nolan

Paul Dolan (Parkinsons)

I have parkinsons and depression now 6 years and I want to thank Irene for introducing me to smovey.  They are a brilliant tool that has made me feel more human than I have for some years.  Even my neurologist, Mr. O Sullivan in UHC noticed the improvement in me and I have no doubt that It was smovey.  I am not as stiff and I can walk better and definitely better balance with them.  The massage with them helps reduce my dyskinesia and the pain that I have with it.

Niall O Driscoll 28/08/16

I’ve had Parkinsons for 5 years and have no feeling in my feet and so tired all the time. I’ve no energy and feel depressed a lot of the time. I was introduced to Irene in Lanzarote in April 2016 and since the day I met her and started to use the Smoveys, I’ve been using them every single morning without fail and I can say with my hand on my heart they are the best tool for exercise I’ve ever seen. They have given me so much energy and I feel amazing since using them. I don’t go for my afternoon nap anymore as have plenty of energy and in much better form since using them. Consistency is key and once you get into a morning routine, you won’t want to get out of it. At the start we followed Irene’s video classes on Facebook but we make up our own now and love it. It is our plan to start up our own Smovey class in the future.

I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis for 22 years now. It has effected me more in recent years than in the past and now find it very debilitating and restricting on my activities. I was introduced to Smovey 4 weeks ago by my friend in MS Ireland and was giving classes on how to use them by Irene from Smovey. Irene would facetime me on a regular basis so she could clearly demonstrate the exercises I had to do for the following week. I love that I can do the exercises from the comfort of my home and I can receive new exercises every week to build on the ones previous. I do most of the exercises sitting down and I find them great. I have increased strength in my arms – I amazed at how quickly I feel that, it was starting of very slowly and by building it up day by day, a little by little, I could feel myself getting stronger. I can even massage the back of my neck with them and receive immediate release from any tension I am feeling.

I also massage my PA to help her release of the tension she has in her neck. I find it very easy to massage my legs which increase the circulation in my legs and now my exercises for this week are to concentrate on massaging my feet with Smovey – this will help prevent my feet from turning blue which they often do. I exercise twice a day, for 10 to 15 minutes each time. I can honestly say that I feel so much better since I have started using Smovey and I feel like they are a great comfort to me and I love them so much, I am bringing them on holiday with me as I’d hate to miss my exercises with them.

The worst thing I have with my MS is my balance has gone really bad and notice it getting increasingly worse the past 2 years. Irene’s exercises last week were focused on my balance and I just cant believe what a difference it has made in the past week and neither can my PA. It’s just unbelievable and I am excited that I can walk with them now instead of my cane. I cant explain how it works – I just know it does! I would highly recommend Smovey not only to people with MS but to everybody as they have so many benefits that help everybody.

Tony Wilkinson, Cork August 2016

I literally couldn’t believe it!!! I’d heard of the Smoveys from some members of our Parkinsons group that had them so really was just thinking they would increase my energy levels which would be a bonus. I never expected it to be as amazing as it is and for it to be so effective immediately, I’m actually blown away by it. I came to one of Irene’s presentations in Cork where she explained the process, history and everything about Smovey and then we went to a gym downstairs where Irene showed us all the exercises. Both my wife and I really enjoyed them, especially the balance and coordination ones. Even my wife who doesn’t suffered from PD said she was excited about feeling the benefits of them. I had already decided to invest in a set when Irene took us for a little walk with them and as I walk with a stick for balance I was not going to do the walk until Irene told me it the Smovey would be used as a stick or crutch but much better. I didn’t believe it until I tried it and immediately walked unaided. I’m so happy and excited to use Smovey and now I can go for a walk without my crutch or loosing my balance I’m so grateful.

January 2017

2 months later; I’m walking 5 miles weather permitting without my stick just using smoveys. This is unheard of, it’s not only after changing my whole attitude to exercise, it’s after changing my bodyshape and I’ve such core body strength which I haven’t had in years. Absolutely love the smoveys.

Dee Oakly

I heard about Smovey from a Parkinson’s website and contacted Irene who was very helpful and knowledgable about Smovey and Parkinsons. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to do the exercise correctly as I’d never seen these Smoveys before but Irene Skyped me and showed me 5 basic moves which were very easy to do. I was unsure if these exercises could really benefit me as they were so easy but I did feel much more energy and was in better mood. The following week Irene Skyped me again and saw my improvement with the exercises and gave me new ones. The second week really focused on balance and coordination and I found them much more difficult. Irene was so patient and generous with her time and eventually I got it. Irene checked me again after a few days to ensure I was using the correct technique which I was and had greatly improved and really gave me great confidence in my own ability. I’m doing Smovey 5 weeks now, I do them every single morning without fail ( unless emergency pops up)and it’s part of my daily routine I don’t deter from and look forward to it as I do Irene’s weekly Skype calls. I highly recommend Smoveys not only for Parkinson’s patients but for everybody as they are so versatile and you really do feel the benefits.   Since I’ve started Smovey a lot of people are telling me how well I look and I absolutely feel the benefits of them. I’ve got much more strength and stamina and able to do so much more than when I started. I had no right swing in my right arm and now after only 5 weeks the muscles are much stronger and I can swing both rings and this really helps my balance. Another major benefit of the Smoveys is my arms and legs would freeze for half hour nearly every day but since I started Smovey, the vibrations prevent the freezing most of the time. When I feel the trigger that my arms are going to freeze I then swing my smovey rings and can often stop the freezing which is amazing as its so debilitating.  I am off to Portugal next week and with the power of technology we will still be having our weekly Skype call that I really look forward to. I can feel myself getting stronger and fitter by the week and that’s a great feeling.

Parkinson's Testimony - Ann (New Ross)

Testimony - July 2017

Testimony from Dr. Gary Sharpe who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s 8 years who is dedicating his life to finding a natural cure for Parkinson’s and co founder of “out thinking Parkinson’s” Follow his truly amazing inspirational journey and unbelievable to actually see the improvements he’s made in the last year. “They say” Parkinson’s is a progressive degenerative disease….. not according to Dr. Sharpe who is defying the odds and improving on his condition and reducing his meds.

Words of Dr. Sharp ” I have been using the smovey rings daily for several weeks and been exploring not only the suggested moves, but ways to incorporate them into movement recovery and dance therapy which I do several times a day in the comfort of my home own. They are tremendous asset in PD recovery and the fact I can now make a fist as seen in my video has certainly been helped by the hand gripping of the rings. I recommend to them any one with PD who is using exercise to help with their symptoms.

It it astonishing how such a simple tool has so many benefits and I’m truly grateful to irene for all her help and coaching using smovey. It has really helped with my walking and I feel so much more comfortable walking and I have lots more energy and feel much fitter since I started. These tools were introduced to me at a time I felt really low and I can honestly say they give me massive support and comfort. Thank you Irene

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 of intellectual 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 most sessions. 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 smovey rings.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 smoveys everyday…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.
