Ben Pianese’s Journey To Heal

The journey to heal all started on an ice rink; perhaps not the most exciting start but as with all journey’s you have to start somewhere.

An injured knee and lower back whilst trying a few new techniques on the ice, was basically how it all started. Not the brightest idea a person can have but why not try new things; right? The pain had to be felt to be believed!

The old back injury had come back to haunt me and after all those twists and turns on the cold surface, a locked knee. Back in an Italian hospital (the first port of call for any injury) the diagnosis was a lateral meniscus tear.

Surgery was necessary at the time where the torn meniscal cartilage was removed; a procedure called Arthroscopy of the knee. A long an arduous road to recovery had started physiotherapy and the faith in these medical experts to re- build what had been broken down; well that was the idea anyway.

The years spent nursing these injuries gave the mind a way to see things in a new perspective. A profound shift in consciousness gave way for a new perception of reality and the self.

With this new awareness of self-exploration the lost keys to open the door to a new dimension had been found. The underlying causes of emotional and psychological pain that restricted interconnectedness within and beyond the body. Since then self-control started. The days now filled with wonder and magic life created in a conscious mind. Achieving full potential and fine tuning and evolving techniques to a new level.

Not dismissing conventional medical practices all together of course we always recommend this type of therapy to all clients which would benefit; they just were not for Ben Pianese. He needed to find a way to reverse in order to move forward; looking into Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Sports massage, Thai massage, Bowen therapy and Bioenergy treatment etc. as alternatives.

We tend to think that doctors, osteopaths and physiotherapist know all about pain so we don’t have to; wrong. Adopting these alternative & complementary therapy methods gives an understanding and also an unlikely respect of pain. This new found attitude to what was ailing Ben Pianese gave him the tools needed to be able to heal effectively.

The Questions Started; Why Am I In Pain? Who Am I?

He believed that to stand out as a massage therapist’s he had to fully understand the journey through the minefield called pain. With each careful step, he learned much and it became apparent that he had processed a gift. He felt that there was something missing and so ventured int the world of complementary therapies.

Excited at the prospect of seeking new ways to reach pain, he enrolled on a number of courses of massage and complementary therapies to achieve a deeper level of understanding. The door was there to be opened and by transforming the negative to a positive, was able to unlock the bolt and open the door to a whole new dimension. It all felt very natural and familiar to, had he been there before? Anything is possible.

For over 17 years, the research, study and experience of many new proven and scientific method and ancient systems of knowledge including: massage, osteopathy, chiropractor, acupuncture, Rapha Yad bioenergy treatment, Theta healing, Access bars, Quantum entrainment, Reconnective healing, and many other energetic healing modalities; where a revelation.

With this new awareness of self-exploration the lost keys to open the door to a new dimension had been found. The underlying causes of emotional and psychological pain that restricted interconnectedness within and beyond the body. Since then self-control started. The days now filled with wonder and magic life created in a conscious mind. Achieving full potential and fine tuning and evolving techniques to a new level.

There is no better place to start than the place that is within you, me us. To service ourselves brings us closer to serving others.

Ben Pianese Reconnective Life-Changing Experience

Do I have time to look after myself as a busy massage therapist? The answer is simple and so are my methods. I have been practicing and experimenting and “I invented my own natural self treatment tool kit”. I empower myself and I look after my own body’s system preventatively.

Going to the pub for a pint or two is a thing of the past, it has been replaced with regular self massage treatment or a visits to a massage therapist.

I am also practicing body awareness techniques, yoga meditation, mind stillness, running and long walks in the fresh air (no matter the turbulent weather) and healthy good food…you are what you eat. This way of living clears my lungs so I can breathe, strengthens my muscles so I can give the best I can to all my clients. I function, that is essentially the key to everyday life.

Many massage therapists in London forget about their own well-being, if w e do this we run the risk of forgetting yours.

One of the therapies designed to release and relax the body areas needing more targeted correction I have found through searching in Google is the Emmett Technique; this therapy inspired me to a whole new level.

Ross Emmett, the founder of The Emmett Technique devised a completely unique treatment using short, swift and light touches. The Emmett Technique experience is fascinating and proves just how easy it is for the muscles to forget their function; in particular after trauma. The use of The Emmett Technique reminds them what their job is.
