A creative approach to massage
Your clients will love Hot Stone Massage as it combines the therapeutic effect of a deep tissue massage with the relaxation effect of deep heat. As a therapist, you will love it because it helps you to more easily perform a deep tissue massage, enjoy a new creative element in your work and (according to our students’ testimonials) attract additional clients. Hot stone massage warms the muscles and connective tissue, allowing you to go deeper while saving your fingers & thumbs from injury. Bodyology's teaching emphasizes how to massage with the stones rather than simply laying them on the clients’ body.
Hot stone massage therapy will be enormously beneficial to your clients and a great asset to your practice! Bodyology offers a rich and active learning experience which will teach you not only superb techniques but also a great deal more

You will also learn marketing skills to help you better reach potential clients.
We believe that as our students improve their massage techniques, this should be complemented by refining their marketing skills so as to speed the growth of their business.
Most hot stone massage courses are filmed so you can replay the class’s video at home to reinforce and refresh your learning (DVDs are free).
This is a 2-day weekend hot stone massage course that counts towards your Continual Professional Development (CPD).
1st & 2nd October 2016 (10AM to 6PM)
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!
Bodyologys set of hot stones
Before practicing 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 an average weight of 4-5 Kg, with many small stones that retain minimal heat (and get cool faster).
Bodyology hot stones set weights about 7-8 Kg and more! The extra weight will ensure you have more heat ᾿under your hands’ to deliver for 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 labeled 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.
