How It Started
Unlike many modern healing therapists who went through a series of classroom courses to learn and acquire skills in this field, Massaggi was born out of a life journey that eventually turned to be a mandate to make the world a better place. The journey to help people from emotional blockages, stress, fear, slump posture, pregnancy pain, sore shoulders, and stiff neck started on an ice-rink – perhaps not the most exciting start, but a journey that eventually ended with a humanitarian service to putting smiles on people’s face and helping them to weather through the stress of life.
My Own Journey
My journey started with a knee injury accompanied with a lower back and emotional pain that almost made life unbearable. Of course, like you would guess, a hospital is the primary point of call for any injury. I was hospitalized and I underwent a procedure called arthroscopy of the knee. Few weeks, I was back at work feeling like a new person, but little did I know that is comfort and life threatening excruciating emotional stress and pain lurked around the corner.
A Shift in Perception
I started to feel a post-surgical pain that got worse, and I had no option than to stop working for two years. A tortuous journey it was for me.
However, the years spent nursing these injuries gave me the opportunity to concentrate on myself; to listen to my body and see things in a new perspective. A profound shift in consciousness gave way for a new perception of reality and my own self. The journey was a discovery process.
I began to explore the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicines, such as: Theta Healing, Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Sports Massage, Osteopathy, Thai Massage, Chiropractor, Reconnective Healing, Bowen Therapy and Bioenergy Treatment, which gave me an in-depth understanding of pain and its underlying pathology and availed me with the knowledge and tools to be able to heal effectively.
The Ben Pianese Re-connective Life-Changing Experience had come alive.
My approach is based on the fact that our overall productivity and performance is hinged on a perfect mental and body state. My mission consists in improving sports performance as well as pushing the boundaries of the mind, so as to release all the mental programming that make us suffer and access our infinite joy within. I work on myself and the others to access our natural artistic and creative ability and reacquaint ourselves with our essence, creativity, skills and talents, so that we may thrive once again as complete natural beings and shed all the boxes and labels modern society imposes upon us.
The Magrin Method
The Magrin Method is a very simple, yet incredibly powerful technique of emotional release. It is suitable for everybody, and it works. The Magrin Method has provided me with the missing link between the physical and energetical approach of my work as a massage therapist, and the mental aspect. The two of them are inextricably linked.
I have been practicing the Magrin Method on a daily basis since 2017 under the direct guide and supervision of its creator, Andrea Magrin, and now I am a coach. I know how to effectively help other people get rid of unwanted mental programmes and self-sabotaging behaviours.
As a coach of the Magrin Method and massage therapist, your personal life should reflect what you are preaching to the outside world. Do I have time to look after myself, as a busy Coach and massage therapist? The answer is simple, and so are my methods. I have been practicing and experimenting, and I also invented my own natural self-treatment tool kit. I employ a proactive approach to stay healthy and lead a sound life. I do not joke with my regular Coaching sessions and self-massage treatment, Senza Mente meditation, mind stillness and long walks in the fresh air and most importantly eat healthy food. This newly adopted life is rewarding as it 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 forget about their own wellbeing, if we do this we run the risk of forgetting yours.
