Smovey: swing, move, & smile! with Antje Waxman
Smovey is a swinging-ring system from Austria.  Smovey provides a dynamic upper and lower body workout that gets you fit while stabilizing your back and spine.  It cannot only help you improve your health, balance, posture, coordination, mobility, and strength, but you will also absorb the healing frequencies from the Smovey through your reflexology zones of your hands.  Smovey are rings with four metal balls inside corrugated tubes (a little over a pound) that create a vibration to the palms of the hand.  Smovey is also beneficial for people with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s D. and MS.
