Best massage I’ve ever had hands down! At first I was nervous about having a male massage therapist but Ben immediately put me at ease.
Licensed Massage Therapist aka “Muscle Whisperer” for Mindful Misfits
Hi there, I’m Ben.
I’m a partner to a badass therapist, stepfather to two incredible teenage daughters, a native to the Pensacola area (and an Enneagram type 2/ INFP on Meyer’s Briggs… which means I was kind of predestined to become a helping healer).
After a decade in the service and bar industry, I knew I wanted a change – a more meaningful way of connecting with others. Massage was a natural choice as it offers me the opportunity to assist individuals looking to heal not only physical issues, but also embrace a more holistic and mindful way of living.
I truly believe that if human beings would only slow down a little, listen to their bodies more, and give permission to their soulful intuition to be the guiding force in decision making, they would find themselves ushered into a life that feels so much greater than mere existing.
I’m also extremely passionate about issues related to healthy masculinity, mindful living and sacred intimacy. Who says men can’t be both the warrior AND the nurturer? I love helping men embrace a lifestyle that is authentic to them and not what society says they should be.
So if you’re looking for a sacred time out; a place to return to center and leave all that ails you physically and emotionally in the hands of someone trained to alleviate stress across all levels of being, I invite you to check out my services page and book the session that most speaks to you.
Getting a massage with Ben is so much more than just basic relaxation. He skillfully and intuitively guides you into releasing stuck points both physically and energetically.
Had an amazing experience with Ben. The pressure was amazing and I felt so relieved! At the end, he also tells you what muscles are tight which Is something I appreciate so I know I can work on what not to do 🙂
Ben Driskell, LMT is a massage therapist practicing in greater Pensacola, FL area. Besides being a “muscle whisperer”, he greatly enjoys writing about issues related to…
Muscle memory is a real thing – When you recall or worse yet, ruminate on, old memories that harbor bad feelings, your muscles tense up exactly as if you were there all over again!
Most men I interact with would rather do just about anything than process their feels, and many women aren’t all that great at it either.
It occurred to me that it can be intimidating or even downright scary to pull back and look at giant emotion swirling in the body and I had this thought – WE WOULDN’T BE SCARED IF WE KNEW WE COULD BREATHE UNDERWATER.
