“Smovey” is a new exercise phenomenon that is huge in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the USA.  The Wellbeing for Life service have organisaed a free Smovey taster session on Wednesday 23rd November, 10.30-11.30am at Newton Aycliffe Youth and Community Centre. Smovey is a multi-functional, easy to use, effective exercise and physiotherapist’s tool.  Smovey rings use vibration therapy through the hands and body to the brain. It is particularly beneficial for people with Parkinson’s, dementia, arthritis, rheumatism, back and shoulder pain.  Dianne White is the Smovey Instructor and says “I demonstrate specific exercises to help boost circulation, activate muscles, mobilise the digestive system, massage the lymphatic system and strengthen the heart and cardiovascular system.  People can also use the Smovey for massages to loosen tensions in the neck, shoulders and back to assist with health conditions such as osteoporosis.” If the taster is successful it is hoped the Wellbeing for Life service will deliver a free course. The service supports people to live well, by helping to address the factors which influence their health. Wellbeing for Life runs courses in the community and Health Trainers support people on a 1-1 basis to enable people to be independent, resilient and maintain good health for themselves and those around them.
