I had no idea what to expect when I went to a Be Activated session with Bev, but can honestly say I was blown away by what she did. It really demonstrated to me how we forget to be in touch with our bodies and found she 'woke' up parts of my body that had gone asleep! Let's put it this way-a massage will relax you on the surface, but being activated goes much deeper- it wakes up your entire nervous system and gives you energy you didn't even know you had. Since going to Bev I have been raving about her techniques and have recommended to several family members and friends, I think everyone should be activated!
Bev came in to Spin Talk to talk about Be Activated, which I had never heard of before and I was curious as to know how it would work. I went to the session with Bev and I was a little apprehensive to be honest, I've had massages and Reiki but this was completely different. I had been very stressed before I went in but didn't realise how stressed and tense I was until Bev started the session. It was nothing like I had done before. Learning about how your body can be woken up through your ribs and diaphragm, I thought I had been breathing as well as I could but realised I hadn't! I had no idea I could feel as well as I did after my Be Activated session with Bev. I would highly recommend it to anyone!!

I met Bev Porrino at the 3 Day Life Balance Escape, which BTW was an absolutely amazing weekend. Bev's Yoga Nidra class on Friday night with its beautiful visualisations combined wth her soothing voice left the group floating all the way to a brilliant night's sleep. The food was wholesome, nutritious and delicious. The smell of the woodfire burning, the hot tub!! (I could have stayed there forever). I had an injury 8 years ago to my foot, leaving a twisted pelvis and chronic daily pain. For the last year I have been unable to stand up straight, walk any distance even or hold my knees together at all without a lot of pain. Bev practiced the Be Activated -Neuromuscular Activation over the weekend. I had not heard of this therapy before but Bev explained it to us in lay-mans terms, and I have to say it was "stunned" by the results. I have probably spent in the thousands of euros over on a lot of various therapies over the last 8 years. Today I am standing straight, pain free, comfortably, and feeling strength in my legs for the first time in a long time! Bev's experience and knowledge is second to none, She is an amazing combination of calm, soothing, instantly trustworthy and with a great sense of humour! The whole atmosphere was amazing at the Elbowroom Escape, rooms, beds and facilities 5* standards...and it's only just an hour and a bit away! I would highly recommend this weekend to kickstart a change in your work/ life balance.

"We were delighted to work with Bev Porrino as part of a Dublin Experience with Jameson (Pernod Ricard) in June 2017. In a short space of time, she was able to demonstrate simple sequences and activations which both impressed and empowered the participants. Bev was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her highly." Orlaith Ross Making Space Events & Production Manager
Dear Bev, I have to thank you for the amazing work you did on me. As you know I had a stroke a few years ago and I was weaker on the right side of my body, but in all honesty I'm getting my strength back. Hun I'm actually a lot better since our session. I can't thank you enough for your help. You have magic hands xxx
Bev, Thank you for a fab session this morning. I walked in a crock, walked out of your place back straight, muscles at ease and out of spasm. Your magic hands are amazing, I feel so well.

Just had the most phenomenal experience called Be Activated Therapy... Forget massage this was the most bizarrely wonderful experience that I can't even begin to describe. If you suffer things like a bad back, bad knees.... anything like that you need to experience this. I don't put this status out lightly as I am huge sceptic of most things like this but man Bev Porrino you are amazing thank you!

Bev, I don't know what you did to me but my neck feels like an owl. I am blown away by how free I feel. Wow! just Wow! Feel like I'm walking on clouds. Thanks a mill.

So..... I have no more knee pain, I can walk my feet right up to my hands ( mouth wide open in surprise!!) and hop up into my handstand. My slightly wobbly belly is now super ninja and a headstand had my feet in the air faster than an ex nun. The downer with this hyperactive childlike energy I'm contemplating taking to the roof to prove I can fly and I'm wondering if you might've mistakenly turned me into a giraffe seeing as I've all this extra room in my neck. I daren't look in the mirror.

Bev tested my legs and arse muscles by a fair amount of jiggery- pokery. 'Activations' After this I was genuinely surprised by how much easier it was for me to move, I could touch my toes too. I was almost inclined to jog up Lugnaquillia but no one likes a show off. Thanks a mill – I think.

Thanks for doing your magic witchcraft on me I feel great today. My body feels really loose, I cant get my head around how a simple thing can make such a big difference. Thanks again.
