Bodyology founder Dror Steiner pursued a dancer’s career before he was seriously injured in a car accident. Massage treatments not only helped him to recover but also inspired to study massage therapy. “I was looking for a new direction in life and massage seemed to merge my interest in science and art,” he said. Massage therapy studies “increased his appetite” for a better understanding of human anatomy and healing processes, and encouraged him to broaden his knowledge with a two-year study programme at a pre-medicine school, followed by four years of osteopathy and acupuncture studies.
Now he runs a Bodyology school. “I am grateful to tutors, administrative staff and students for their mutual effort to make this school a success. We have the opportunity to learn together and enrich each other's lives,” Dror said. He confessed: “I love working with people who have a positive outlook in life.”
Dror, why massage?
Massage combines many things that I love: physical movement, non-verbal communication, science and the art of healing. I feel lucky to have stumbled upon it.
What profession would you choose if not massage therapy?
I have a long list! Psychotherapy, counselling, politics, photography, web programmer, environmental engineering or a chef. Is that enough?
What is your life’s inspiration?
I try to find inspiration in small things: spending time with children, seeing a smile on a face or getting a new idea.
What’s your life motto?
It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We are powerful beyond measure.
Advice you can give students?
Look at yourself in the mirror and tell it to yourself: “You are powerful beyond measure.” The rest is easy.
What’s your experience at Bodyology?
It is a challenge! Not giving up on it or cutting corners in the process. I love creating the magic of learning over and over again with new students.
What do you like about Bodyology?
I like the thorough teaching process without cutting any corners. I like the joy, the laughs and the buzz in the classroom.
