“Above all, the awards are testament to the great team at Waterford and the work that they do every day for our patients around the world. We place a lot of emphasis on teamwork and it’s working together that brings about this type of success.

“As the site diversifies and grows to serve more patients than ever before, it’s great to have this chance to pause and reflect on how far we’ve come together.

Smovey Parkinsons

smovey health has extremely exciting news to share. Irene Treacy Irelands' first smovey COACH along with two very special guests is doing a Parkinson’s workshop in Dublin next month.

Parkinson’s specialist Karl Stirling is coming all the way from New York who will share with us his best practises and techniques to help people with Parkinson’s overcome daily challenges from rolling over in bed, improving gait, balance, coordination, cognitive behaviour & dexterity.

Irene Treacy did this workshop with Karl in London only a few weeks ago and could not believe how he helped so many people with Parkinson’s overcome some of their challenges and they all left totally “buzzing and empowered to help themselves”. Please check out Karl’s website www.physiochains.com.

Second special guest is Dr. Ryan Foley, from Evolve Physiotherapy & Wellness in Waterford who has recently returned from America and will be using Applied Function Neurology to give some hands on practical techniques to help improve some issues like balance and rigidity.

Both these specialists will be asking for participation from the group so if you have any particular issues that you’d like help with, this is your chance to get help from the experts. At the day Irene Treacy will be giving a smovey demonstration and showing some new exercises to help with many issues that people with Parkinson’s suffer on a daily basis from improving balance, coordination, mobility and helping with constipation. Please like “smovey health” on Facebook to see videos on Karl & Ryan next week talking about the workshop.

This exciting workshop will take place on Wednesday 8th November 2017 in Hilton hotel Malahide Rd, Northern Cross, Dublin.

There are 2 (the same) workshops on Wednesday 8th November from 9am to 1pm with extra hour for questions, answers and personal attention.

2nd workshop starting at 4pm to 8pm and again extra hour if anybody would like to ask questions or personal attention.

The workshop is interactive (if you choose) so please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Price is: €99.90 Professionals working with people with Parkinson’s and €69.90 People with Parkinson’s and their carers. 20% of all profits will be donated to Parkinson’s Ireland.

The Granville Hotel were announced Gold Award Winners on Saturday last in Dingle at the prestigious Irish Food Awards 2017 for its Raspberry Jam and also received the overall product Best in Waterford Award, Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards, a trusted accreditation and mark of Irish quality.

Celebrating and rewarding the very best tasting Irish food and drink products, and the passionate, driven producers who make it.

The Blas awards are the biggest blind tasting of produce in the country, and the criteria on which the product is judged as well as the judging system itself, which was developed by Blas na hEireann with the Food Science Dept of UCC, is now recognised as an international industry standard.

Research has shown that the Blas accreditation has the highest recognition amongst Irish consumers and using the award logo is their guarantee of a top quality Irish product.

Blas na hEireann was founded so that quality benchmarks could be established for Irish produce on a level playing field. “Winning at Blas has made a significant business difference to our winners.”
