Ayurvedic Bodywork

The Ayurveda for Bodyworkers training was a wonderful experience. Shoshanna leads with great confidence and knowledge in the area of Ayurveda and Massage and integrates the two with great precision and passion. I recommend this class to those interested in bringing in the Ayurvedic principles to their massage practice.

Julia DashkovaI wanted to expand my knowledge and techniques to be more helpful with the clients in my practice. Shoshanna is a very giving teacher with a lot of knowledge and experience and she has inspired me to proceed with learning and practicing Ayurveda. I had a wonderful learning experience in the Ayurvedic bodywork class and if I had a chance to take the class again, I would do it in a heartbeat. Thank you Shoshanna for your kind heart and great learning experience.

Hot Stone Training

Costa Rica “As a visiting instructor at the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy (CRSMT), Shoshanna wowed the students with her expertise and knowledge of Hot Stone Massage and Hydrotherapy. She inspired them to utilize their natural surroundings by holding classes in the jungle garden, at the beach, and in the pool. She was compassionate, creative, and inspirational. Thanks Shoshanna!”
Russell Bennett, Director of Operations, Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy


Cynthia ShobutteThere is no comparison to the high level of hot stone massage training you will get from Shoshanna DiBetta. The blend of stone placement and use of stones for deep tissue techniques is unparalleled. Her many years of experience in hydrotherapy/spa work makes her a wealth of knowledge. Her dedication to the practice gives her a very heartfelt approach to this modality of body work. I required all of my hot stone massage therapists to be trained by Shoshanna.

Lauren Muser Cates“I learned the skill of hot stone massage from Shoshanna shortly after I graduated from massage school. That was almost 5 years ago now and I still remember how much fun the class was. Shoshanna’s passion for working with stones excited and energized the class about ways to incorporate this new modality into our work. It’s amazing what she can do in such a short amount of time. You will leave the class feeling confident and ready to begin using the stones in your practice whether for full-body sessions or to spice up your deep tissue and focused work. I can’t say enough about Shoshanna or this wonderful class!”

Omni Mount Washington Resort Shoshanna brings a new twist to an ancient treatment. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the amazing modality of hot stones. She has the ability to transform a class room of individuals into a family while blending hot stones and deep tissue into an effective, balancing, relaxing and beneficial treatment.

“Since taking the Hot Stone Massage class with Shoshanna in October 2008, I have confidently offered and performed Stone Massage Therapy to my clients and received incredible feedback and results. The class was practical and informative and I learned a wonderful template to incorporate into my practice. I’m so glad I found a hands-on class that fit my budget without compromising the quality of instruction. I have earned back the tuition, equipment and supplies several times over since taking it. Thank you, Shoshanna!”

Massage Envy “We hold our employees, clients and our craft, massage therapy, in high regard. Before introducing Hot Stone massage, we wanted to make sure to provide the service at an exceptional quality. We decided to provide at least 24 CE hours of training for our therapists. Shoshonna DiBetta provided 8 CEUs to our LMTs. She spent extra hours learning about our policies and procedures, and adopted her teachings accordingly. Shoshanna had a wonderful balance of commanding attention while at the same time bringing a calm and therapeutic tone to the class. She allowed the students to be themselves with this work while working one on one to redirect when needed. Safety and health were on the forefront of her teaching which serves our therapists extremely well as they take what she taught back to our clinics. We have heard resounding gratitude from our therapists for Shoshanna’s awareness and education.”
