Learn how to use this tool that will revolutionise the way you treat and massage your clients
Hand carved from white jade, the WaveStone retains both heat and cold, so enabling more efficient treatments while also protecting your wrists, hands, elbows and fingers.
Therapists’ wrists, hands, fingers and thumbs can often hurt after long days treating clients and, over time, increasingly take longer to recover.
The WaveStone provides significant protection, without limiting therapists’ feel for the treatments they are undertaking, so prolonging careers and safeguarding livelihoods.
The WaveStone ’s unique properties allow it to be warmed and cooled in a matter of minutes. Most other hot stones require their own heater and take up to half an hour to be made ready for use, while cold massage stones need to be frozen.
Your clients will benefit from:
Stimulation of the circulatory system
Softening of tissues and muscles
The Power of Jade (which promotes healing)
Far Infrared passing heat smoothly into the body
“While I would never say that therapists should stop using their hands, they should look after them very carefully – after all, they are the key tools of their trade. The real advantage of the WaveStone is that, properly used, it can treat the majority of conditions and, in addition, the client benefits from an enhanced experience, not least the fact that the stone retains heat or cold for a significant period” Adrian Jenkinson, inventor of the WaveStone

About Adrian Jenkinson:
Having initially qualified and worked as a paramedic, his success as both a national league field hockey and ice hockey player (where Adrian also provided game day medical cover) led to him being inexorably drawn towards sports and massage therapy.
Five years ago, having become very concerned about stress to his fingers, hands and wrists, Adrian set out to create an ergonomically shaped tool that would protect hands (and therefore careers), aid therapists in their massage and bring relief and healing to their clients. He scoured the globe to find a natural stone that would retain both heat and cold, experimenting with many different materials and developing the design of a treatment tool that could follow all the contours of the body’s muscles. When Adrian travelled to China in his capacity as a sports therapist, his host introduced him to a local stonemason who had the raw materials, skills and understanding to help with the project. He produced various prototypes that Adrian brought back to the UK to fine tune, safety test and trial with clients. The much awaited result was a hand-crafted massage tool made of White Jade – the WaveStone. Adrian has been using the WaveStone extensively in his practice for the last three years along with increasing numbers of professional colleagues in the Clinical, Sports, Massage, Spa and Salon sectors. Might this be a good time for you to join them and start to safeguard your living?
Adrian has trained our own tutor, Peter Cummings, to teach this course
