I enjoy Dror’s (our tutor) energy and commitment, supporting students when needed. Above all, his passion for massage- it’s infectious! Lisa

I have learned so much in one day! I love the massage with tai chi and dancing movement! Really fun learning. The way you taught me makes me want to give massage. Micheal

It was hard for me to choose massage school. I took the Introductory course, met the tutor, came to open day. Don’t enrol anywhere else until you at least try Bodyology! Nataliya

I love watching your YouTube channel but taking the course exceeds my expectation. The whole experience really touched me. Thanks and bless you. Dorota

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!


Before practising hot stone massage, many practitioners consider the number of stones in the set as the most important feature – i.e. ’more means better’. But in fact, 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 ‘stone’ in the stones!
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 therapist 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 bodies are 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.
