A CREATIVE APPROACH TO MASSAGE
Hot stone massage therapy is a win-win. It will be enormously beneficial to you and great magnet attracting new clients!
Clients love hot stone massage as it combines the therapeutic and relaxing effects of a deep tissue massage with the effect of deep heat. Hot stone massage can be a lot more effective and clients feel those extra benefits.
Body therapists love hot stone massage as they can ‘go deeper’ easier. It also opens a new & creative element in bodywork and it attracts a lot more new clients.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE COURSE?
This practical course is packed with massage techniques and skills, so prepare your hands!
We will teach you everything you need, even how to clean your hot stones. We keep the theory to a minimum so you can practice as much as possible.
Tutors first will demonstrate certain massage techniques, then you will practice in pairs and will be supervised to improve the quality of the massage you give.
After the course, you will have access to our Online Course Companion, where you can:
– watch all the courses’ techniques video to reinforce and refresh your learning
– download files for further learning
– download hot stone massage images to use freely on your website (we do think about everything!)
We emphasize teaching you ‘going deep’ with the hot stones, not the ‘fluffy’ hot stone massage.

“Thank you for such a wonderful course. You made it fun and interesting and with your wealth of knowledge, it was wonderful learning with you. Thank you for being so patient with me. As I told you, I did only level 3 diploma in massage and didn’t feel that confident before taking this course”.
“Dear Dror, thank you for this great course! Since the course, I have worked a lot with the stones. The course has already paid for itself because my clients love the stones and book more treatments, especially during the colder months. Kind regards. “
“Overall I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it to othe3rs. I thought your teaching style was good and your enthusiasm and knowledge shone through. The techniques were well demonstrated and offering online video is a great idea to refresh our memory. The venue was very good and it was nice to have lunch with the rest of the group.”
“ I didn’t take the massage diploma course with Bodyology. Only once taking Bodyology’s hot stone massage course, I have realised the difference between them and my other school. Bodyology is a two notch higher than any other course I have taken in massage.”

BUYING A HOT STONE MASSAGE SET
During the hot stone massage course, you will practice with a set of Basalt stones specially developed by Bodyology. At the end of the hot stone massage course, you can purchase a set of stones from us or from another supplier. We strongly recommend that you do some research on different sets of massage stones but do not buy any before the hot stone massage course!
BODYOLOGY SET OF HOT STONES
Before practising hot stone massage, some practitioners consider the number of stones in the set as the most important feature – i.e. ’more means better’. However, as we shall see, the most important consideration is the weight of the stones.
It is the basalt in the stone which retains the heat. If you want more heat to be transferred to your client’s body you have to have more ‘stones’ in the stones! That means more basalt.
An average hot stone set (with up to 40-50 stones) has a weight of 4-5 Kg, with many small stones that retain minimal heat (and get cool faster).
Bodyology hot stones set weighs about 7-8 Kg or more! The extra weight will ensure you have more heat under your hands’ to deliver a longer time to your client. This also means you need to change stones less often.
Are heavier stones too heavy to use? Certainly not! Our stones are all tested to ensure therapists’ and clients’ comfort.
Another important issue is the stones’ surface. A very smooth and shiny stone may look great, but in reality, those stones glide on the skin resulting in a superficial massage.
Bodyology hot stones originate from the volcanic mountains around the Jordan valley and have been smoothed over millions of years on their way down to the Sea of Galilee.
Bodyology hot stones are cleaned, sorted, packed and labelled based on size and function. As our clients’ bodies are coming in different shapes and sizes, our stones reflect this in their varied sizes and shapes. A good working stone has angles and curves to allow the therapist access to hard to reach muscles.
