I’m a Certified Massage Therapist and a Strength and Conditioning Coach. I’m always looking to better myself to offer the last and cutting-edge techniques to resolve pain issues with my patients .

MAT concept it’s pretty simple: work on your weak muscle , activate it, so that your total  body function increase. A weak muscle it’s an open door for injury and if you have an injury it’s probably because of it !

So let’s make this muscle strong with a Deep Tissue Massage on the Muscle Spindle and let’s activate them on my massage table in Sagrada Familia or at your Hotel.

I can help you get rid of your back pain, shin splint, torticolis, knee pain. Call me Now and book an appointment with me

Functional Massage Therapy

back functional

Hi Guys and thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Today I’m going to talk about my Functional Massage Therapy. As a strength and conditioning trainer my clients are mostly athletes, body–builders , Crossfitters or weekend warriors that no matter how careful they are in the training room they always end up with some kind of injuries. I believe that perfect position while lifting , pulling ( an object or your own body) it’s the key to avoid joint overused or tendinitis. But sometimes even perfect technique it’s not enough because if muscle are not activated in the right way it’s easy to end up with an imbalance that can decrease the performance.

That’s why before I give a functional massage, I always ask for physical history, I check the patient posture and if he is up to it I  test his muscle and activate them to make him perform better.

If you feel you need a Functional Massage or a Deep Tissue massage you are in good hands

my fees are : 65  euros x 60 min  or  85 x 90 min

I hope to see you soon in my Private Studio near Sagrada Familia

Headache Relief Massage and the SCM.

HEADACHE RELIEF

In our hyperdigital society and with deskbound jobs it’s common to develop headaches caused by the sternocleidomastoid muscle.

The SCM primary function is to rotate the neck. If you spend long time in front of a PC or a Phone chances are you might have this muscle tight and the consequences generally are unilaterally head pain referred at the base of the skull and around your eyes.

A tight SCM push your head forward and load eccentrically the muscles at the base of your Occiput  ( obliquus capitis superior muscle) causing headaches.

If after a long travel or a stressful day at your job, you need a good neck release and a possible headache relief I will do everything in my capacity to relax your neck and make your head light and headache free.

contact me at 634791996 WHATSAPP , and book your Myofascial Release Session Now!

Allow yourself to fight gravity with the right tools and learn the right posture to avoid unnecessary  pain in the future

Osteopathy , Myofascial Release Barcelona

osteopathy

Welcome to my Studio and thanks for your interest in my work.

As a result of my Osteopathic treatment and my myofascial release massage I guarantee a better function of your spine and a relief of your  neck and back pain. I blend together different techniques from Dr Andrew Still and Thomas Myers to get the most effective treatment that help to fix muscle unbalances and painful knots .

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an approach to healing that uses subtle and gross manipulations to address structural conditions commonly experienced as pain, weakness or organ malfunction.

and Myofascial release ?

The word myofascial means muscle tissue (myo) and the connective tissue in and around it (fascia). Myofascial pain often results from muscle injury or repetitive strain. When stressed or injured, muscles often form trigger points, like contracted knots, that cause pain and tightness.

Myofascial Release Massage Barcelona

myofascial release barcelona
the superficial back line is only one of the connective tissue lines that can create trouble in the way you walk , move and lift weights in the gym.

Myofascial Release Massage is a very effective way to treat dysfunctions in your body lines and balance your connective tissue(Fascia) to function at his best.

Myofascial Release follows the structural pattern discover from Andrew Still then from Ida Rolf  ( Rolfing ) and lately Thomas Myers ( Anatomy Trains).

When you have pain in your cervical or lumbar region a massage can bring heat and flush the metabolic toxins in the area and momentarily release the discomfort.

A functional and  structural assesment of the causes and the root of your pain it’s a much better way to treat the disfunction and preventing it from coming back

if you have back pain , neck pain, knee pain ,torticolis I can help you, and together we can discover the cause of the pain and get rid of it.

Dealing with disc pain in Barcelona

Do you have a lower back pain that keeps coming back ? I‘m sure sometimes it extends further down your leg and into your foot. These symptoms could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.

Slipped Disc or Herniated Disc can be debilitating and really painful

Pain caused by a slipped disc 

Generally an herniated disc pain subsides in 6 weeks by itself but if the pain is recurrent and it keeps coming back massage treatment and osteopathy or chiropractic techniques should be considered

Treatments

if you think you need some spine care I can help to restore the spine normal state with gentle manipulation or working the fascia and the muscle around it and show you some exercises to relief your back pain

I charge 65 euros x session (around 60 min )

don’t think  it twice and stop taking anti_inflammatory to feel better go to the root of the problem

Cupping, Fascia and Deep Tissue Barcelona

cupping massage barcelona

Cupping therapy has become famous in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Us champion Michael Phelps’s skin is covered with purple dots, but Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine that helps with pain, inflammation, release of the fascia , blood flow and it can be used as complementary type in the deep tissue massage to get rid of knots in every part of the body.

Cupping is the only method known in massage therapy that pulls the Fascia instead of pressing it.

And that is the key to get rid of knots and make the collagen and hyaluronic acid slide one on top of the other and recreate the fascial structural balance you need to get rid of pain in your back , neck and shoulder

Here in Barcelona I practice Deep Tissue Massage and Cupping Therapy with athletes, crossfitters, football players and of course average joes.

if you want your back or neck to feel light and painless again i recommend deep tissue plus cupping therapy together

thanks for reading my blog

here my number 0034634791996 when you call me ask for cupping therapy

Hi , thanks for checking my Massage blog

To BOOK A MASSAGE WITH ME  ; )   0034 634791996

I started massaging athletes and clients  in my  Strength and Conditioning  Gym in Barcelona.

If you ever been serious about training and conditioning you know you need a good mobilty routine and a fast but efficient warm up. Tissues and muscle  have to be ready to sustain external stress ( Heavy weights and repetitions)

But the more you train and the more you increase volume and strength the more you need to recover.

Muscle grow when you sleep ! But if your body is sore and full of metabolites and toxins from the training, you won’t recover as fast as you need for the next workout

Enter the Massage

A good Massage helps to get rid of the toxins and restores and relaxes the muscle to aggressively attack your next workout or Competition.

That’s why after 15 years of training all kind of people I decide to add massage to my services.

I know how the human body and its complex anatomy and I can help you in balancing excessive muscle contraction , KNOTS and PAIN

I use Deep Tissue Massage as a base to get rid of pain in your upper back and lower back

my experience allow me to mix Chinese Massage, Acupressure and Streching to get the most benefits and relax for  your body.

I know how to relief your back pain !

Trust me when I’m saying that I won’t let you go if the pain isn’t less than when you entered my door

my fees are :

Deep Tissue Massage  55 euros  x  60 min /  80euros x  90 min

See you soon !

Best

Massimiliano
