Is it possible to live the Present as if it was a Gift?
It is not only possible, it is easier than we have been conditioned to believe.
We will be looking at how we have been conditioned to believe that living a peaceful and harmonious Life is difficult.
What is the relationship between beliefs and reality.
How it is possible to live fully in the Present moment.

How would we live knowing that we are the Ones choosing and deciding the rules of the Game? Do they exist? If so, what are the absolute rules of the existential Game?
Who are we? The answers to those questions are the fundamental to the way we perceive ourselves, others and Life.
We have the power to choose how to react to what happens to us.
Once we are aware of that we become #conscious that we are the creators of our own experience…
EVERYTHING LIES INSIDE…

Hello I am Ben Pianese,
I grew up in Naples, Italy. A creative child, I would draw and make things, I loved to see things transform and would find great pleasure in seeing the end result. I was a typical boy playing and getting hurt in the process, like I said ‘typical’. My friends were no different, we all suffered from the knocks we took when we played boisterously. It seemed I had a touch back then and would instinctively know how to help with their twisted ankles and pulled muscles by using my hands. They would look for me after such incidents and say, “Where’s Ben, he’s good with his hands”.
I was a teenager when I realised what career I should follow. An example of when something bad happens and turns into something good; I sustained a knee injury. The pain was so extreme that pain killers and medical help were not effective. I turned to a friend who was studying Thai Massage at the time and the effect this had on my injury was astounding, the recovery process had truly started. My interest in this way of healing and alternative therapy grew and I decided to enrol in a course to gain more knowledge.
This course was to change my life forever and for the better. I felt energy of which I had never experienced before; incredible and thinking of it fills me with love, love was certainly the overwhelming feeling I had then. It was truly unforgettable. My teacher noticed how responsive I was and realised that I had the ‘magic touch’. He invited me on a more advanced massage course… my future was now set and the path I took, no matter how painful was worth the journey.
I visited England when I was 23 years old and had an overwhelming feeling that this was the place for me. Most people would think it madness to leave a country as beautiful as Italy but something inside told me that this is where I belong and I have never looked back.
I went on a feeling in the early days and it occurred to me that if I can help people create a ‘good feeling’ within them then this could enhance the way they live from day to day. The healing process can sometimes be a long and arduous one and not everyone will respond to one type of healing remedy. My passion extends to learning about different types of healing and in particular those of different cultures. How can I treat everyone as an individual if I am not open to the ways of the most respected techniques which have been used for thousands of years? The good news is that I have a real love for these techniques and have, in the last 12 years been focusing on how they can be used effectively in this day and age.
Everything has to have come from somewhere; a root cause. Determining that root cause is the most effective way for me to address energy levels. Sometimes, there is a blockage in energy that needs to be cleared. Disease, pain relief and illness are treated with conventional treatments but I believe that with the use of massage and other hands-on therapies that they can be treated in the long term. Why not feel good all the time? These treatments can be easily adapted as part of what we do daily, no need for a doctor just the will to be better. I speak as I find and use these methods myself. It really is quite fulfilling when I see the progress made by my clients; they are my inspiration.
My interest never fades and I have, in the last 12 years studied Sports Massage, Shiatsu, Pilates, Thai Yoga, Reiki and so much more. I have found Lymphatic Drainage to be one of the most non-evasive treatments. It is a treatment that my clients have a need for and not only helps to cure them but also acts as a preventative measure. For me, prevention is better than cure but life is life and it is not that simple … I acknowledge and respect that.
The extensive knowledge I have is the tool I use to help everyone I touch. The thing that comes naturally to me is my intuition, which has grown stronger as I have grown. I am non-judgemental, understanding and empathetic; without these characteristics I would not be able to give my clients the attention and care they undoubtedly deserve.
